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.

"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!

"A really lovely spacious,modern apartment."

We spent a fabulous week in 10 Marinus. The apartment is beautifully clean and furnished well with everything you could possibly need. There are great views from the kitchen and lounge areas across the harbour to the mainland. In our time there we saw many cruise liners sailing past from Southampton. This really is a five star apartment which we would recommend to anybody! We will definitely be back ourselves.

"Stunning apartment in beautiful, convenient location"

Having returned from a stay at 10 Marinus in West Cowes, I felt I had to write a review... From the pictures on the internet, our expectations were very high... and I can say we were not disappointed!! The apartment was simply beautiful; it was spacious and very clean, with a large lounge/dining room, modern kitchen, two good sized bedrooms and two modern bathrooms (one en-suite). We were particularly impressed with the quality furnishings; there was ample furniture to make it feel homely and the bed/bedding was so comfortable! As we were planning on staying in to cook a couple of nights, we were also really pleased to see the apartment was fully kitted out with pots, pans, and every utensil we needed. It felt like we were really treating ourselves and staying somewhere special. The setting is also superb, right next to the marina and within walking distance of shops, cafes and restaurants (we had dinner at Coast, which was lovely, good food and nice mellow atmosphere). We would definitely return to 10 Marinus, but probably for a longer stay next time, would like to explore a bit more.

Thank you for such a super review, we do hope you decide to stay with us again in the future. We are glad you enjoyed your meal at Coast, it's one of our favourites! Thank you also for leaving the apartment so lovely and clean.

"beautiful flat in a beautiful spot"

georgous flat, we just loved it.! super comfy beds and showers to die for! enjoyed the view over to the ferry and boatsheds from the living area and we spent rather a lot of time out on the patio enjoying it. loved the fact it is right on the doorstep to town yet beautifully peaceful and tucked away..we have such fond memories and will definitely return..the flat just has everything simply as you need it, which made what was a short break so relaxing an easy. I was recommended to stay here by my mother who loves it also. we all agreed that we just didn't want to leave.. many thanx sue for a lovely service..

Thank you for such a great review, we were thrilled to hear you all enjoyed your stay at our apartment.
