It is an ideal location for many different types of visitors including families, walkers and ramblers, cyclists and dinghy sailors. It has long been a popular holiday spot with rows of beach side chalets dating back to the 1920's, but now most of the old rail carriages and timber chalets have now gone. The replacement buildings are built to today's standards but designed to be in keeping with the beach side chalets they replaced.

The Isle of Wight region

The Isle of Wight is one of the most idyllic parts of Britain. It offers a great deal for tourists of all ages and yet maintains a stunning unspoiled feel. Half of the area of the Island is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty but there is still enough room to provide all of the amenities and attractions to interest all tastes.

Whether your visit for the weather, the beaches or the many festival the Island hosts, your trip will certainly be enjoyable.


Gurnard is a village just to the west of Cowes on the north shore of the Island. Our area, called Gurnard Marsh is right on the coast and offers stunning view of the world famous sailing and sunsets.

"Excellent holiday at Starboard"

We love the location - very quiet and peaceful.
The amenities at Starboard are superb, light airy rooms kept to a very high standard.
Great place to come back to after a full day exploring the pretty Island
Nice being so close to Cowes to experience the yachting buzz and near enough to walk to.
The owner Carl made us very welcome and we will be returning.

"Excellent Accommodation & Holiday"

We have just returned from a very relaxing holiday at Star Board - Isle of White,The whole experience was fantastic. The accommodation was better than we expected, When we arrived there was local drinks, chocolates and milk waiting for us which was a good start. The accommodation is spotless and very clean. All the bedding and towel are provided and very comfortable. We were really lucky with the weather and went around all the attractions - Osborne House and Alum Bay Needles are worth the trip. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, the beaches and views are lovely. We were lucky to see the best sun set in all the various holidays we have been over many years. We are looking forward to going back one day soon!

"Perfect beach house by the sea"

This was a very friendly holiday where nothing was too much trouble. This beach house had free wi-fi which kept my teenager amused when we weren't able to. It was great to wake up in he morning, lift the blinds and be able to see the sea. The power shower could probably drill holes in you if you stayed in long enough but was excellent for aching limbs. The complimentary lemon soap was to die for. It was a very peaceful atmosphere that left us feeling that we would happily return

"A home from home but better!!"

We stayed here at this beautiful accommodation for one week and what a beautiful stay it is.
The beach chalet is beautiful and provides for all your needs. Upon arrival the local beers, apple juices and chocolate were a real treat (thank you!)

Unfortunately our 1 year old was extremely unwell the whole stay so we were unable to leave Starboard too often but thank goodness we were staying here as it catered for everything we needed in that time.

The location is beautiful and you are literally opposite a lovely Restaurant called the Little Gloster but you'd not have known unless you looked out of your window as it's very quiet and respectful of its surrounding neighbours.

The property provides a travel cot and high hair for little ones and there's also a pretty good hair dryer so no need to take yours along for the ride!

Michele and Carl make communication very easy and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful place to stay with easy links to all the great places of the stunning I.o.W!!

Our only 'niggle' (if you can call it that!) is that we found the master bed a little uncomfortable so might be worth bringing a thin duvet to place under the bottom sheet for a little more comfort..... But then it may just be us and what we're used to at home....thought I'd mention it it's otherwise perfect here.

In summary we LOVED it and will be booking for next year.... And for longer!! Thank you for a wonderful stay

Thank you for your kind comments.
I am sorry that you found the mattress a little uncomfortable. Since having the bed in Starboard we have received many comments on its comfort and on three occasions I have been asked to send guests details of the bed as they have expressed an interest in buying them for themselves.
Looking at the internet it now looks as if that mattress is no longer made so the only information that I can pass onto anyone with concerns is that it is called the Sigma Pocket Mattress and it is made by The Old English Bed Company.
