The Isle of Wight is home to one of the UK's most expensive seaside Airbnbs according to new research, which looked at prices during 'peak season'.

Data, which was gathered in August and September, lists a rental property in Yarmouth as one of the dearest.

Holiday website Florida Panhandle said during that period, prices for Solenta, on the corner of Bouldnor Road and Thorley Road, peaked at £2,177 per night.

In mid-August next year, prices per night are around £2,465.

Airbnb describes Solenta as a luxury coastal five-bedroom house, which can accommodate 10 plus four people.

The property has a lounge on the first floor with panoramic views of the Solent, a well-kept garden with patio furniture and BBQ, a glass roofed conservatory and parking for four cars.

Prices decrease depending on the time of year it is booked. For example, next month, which is not classed as peak season, the prices are considerably lower and range anywhere between £440 and £896 per night.

The study puts Solenta fifth on its list of the UK's most expensive beachfront property rentals, when looking at peak season prices.

Only Captain's House (Osea Island) Dorset Castle, Waterfront House (St, Mawes) and Luxury Scottish Baronial House (Dunnet) rank higher in terms of price per night, according to the research.

To get the data, staff at Florida Panhandle visited each country’s page and applied the ‘beachfront’ property filter with flexible dates.

When the most expensive properties per night were retrieved, each was manually checked by photos to confirm that it was located either on a beachfront or a short distance from one with uninterrupted views.
