The Isle of Wight region

Cowes Town Centre, just a few minutes stroll away offers a great variety of shopping to suit everyone, along with numerous bars and restaurants. The Beach is in easy reach and the esplanade offers wonderful sea views along its length to Gunard.


The Isle of Wight offers visitors so many attractions from visiting the wonderful Osbourne House, once home to

Queen Victoria, to walking along miles of cliff paths, beaches and woodland.

A boat taxi trip up the river to the Folly Inn is a must on a sunny day. The Seaview Wildlife Centre offers a great day out for animal lovers, and there is a minature village in Godshill with the Donkey Sanctuary just down the road.

There are also numerous regattas to enjoy, amongst them being the World famous Cowes Week, Little Britain and The Round the Island Race.

"Great apartment in superb location for all of IOW amenities."

Well equipped, even wet day was not an issue. Easy walk into East and West Cowes for shops/restaurants/ bars. Would go again and hence recommend.

"Lovely accomodation fantastic holiday"

The appartment when we arrived exceeded our expectations. it was spotlessly clean and there was everything we could have possibly needed.
We had difficulty working out how to work the hot water, but the maintanence man came straight away.
The view from the apartment was wonderful and although we didn't use the barbeque it would be lovely to have one over looking the boats.
Every detail was catered for, there was nothing we would have changed.
I went with my mum who is 84 so having a patio entrance was reallyuseful due to her poor mobility and the lovely town of Cowes is very near by.
Thank you so much and we will definately use this again and recommend it.

"Great apartment on a great location"

Booking service was excellent. The owner provided lots of useful information tailored to our interests and also provided a discount voucher for the ferry.

Large comfortable property with all the amenities you could need for a holiday. We didn't cook but a modern fully equipped kitchen. Large comfortable sofas with a great view from the lounge over the water.

Location is ideal. Minutes from the ferry, quiet area. Cowes itself has some interesting shops and scenic walks. As the island is relatively small also not far from all of the tourist activities the Isle of Wight has to offer

would definitely return.

"Fabulous spacious apartment in a great location"

Fabulously spacious, clean and modern apartment. Lived up to its expectations. Comfy beds and duvets, large en suite shower, large bathroom, everything you need at your fingertips. We honestly couldn't ask for any better. Felt so homely. We enjoyed watching the ferry come and go and keeping an eye for the cruise liners. Set on the edge of a marina it was so peaceful and yet only minutes (at few at most) from Cowes High street filled with shops, bars and restaurants. The personal service and advise provided by the owner Sue was very well received. We would very highly recommend this for Your stay on the Isle of Wight.

"Really fabulous place to stay"

We have just returned from a stay at this apartment and wanted to say how great our time there was. We travelled round the island but always looked forward to getting back! There are many superb restaurants and pubs around the island. Also, we walked from the apartment to Newport along the river Medina, (stopping at The Bargemans Rest!) and walking back along the other side (stopping at The Folly!) The apartment is modern, spacious, comfortable, with great views and car parking right outside. The fact we really want to go back there says it all!
