"Comfy, central and clean."

Stayed only for 3 nights but would have loved to of stayed longer.
Lovely light comfortable flat.
A little bit of noise at night but I guess that is to be expected when you stay in any central location.
Will come back again one day for another visit.

"A home away from home"

The apartment provides everything you could need. The light and airy space, along with the modern stylish decor, luxury touches and tech considerations, makes it hard to actually leave the apartment. … More

Really lovely flat, thoughtful decor, very comfortable and relaxed. Lots of thought gone in to it. Great to have some basics provided to use e.g. dishwashing liquid, olive oil, salt and pepper, coffee and tea etc - little things that do make a big difference to a comfortable stay. A few little maintenance issues to be sorted but nothing major. Shower not great - little pressure unfortunately and a shower curtain which is a personal pet hate. Wonderful location - so handy to get to everything and very close to fast ferry. Loved being right in the midst of Cowes. WONDERFUL. Thanks Peter!

"Very nice rental property"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. It was clean and well maintained and excellently located for the Cowes week festivities. In addition it had a washing machine which was not mentioned on the facilities list and came in very handy.

Dear guest,

Thank you kindly for reviewing 42a. We are responding to your review because we would like to formally apologise for the lack of eggcups during your stay. We thought that we had a thought of everything... DVD collection, wireless iPod dock, hand wash, shower gel, towels, kitchen towels, wine, water, jam, biscuits, tea, coffee, milk, candles, good quality linen, washing machine... but alas... we overlooked the eggcups! As they say, the devil is in the details!

Rest assured, we will be seeking to rectify this heinous error with great urgency.

We apologise whole heartedly once more, and we hope that this will not deter you from considering 42a for your future stays in Cowes.

Happy travelling,

Peter & Nathalie

"Lovely central location!"

42a Cowes town centre is an absolute pleasure to stay in! The location is fantastic just a stones throw away from the red Jet ferry terminal and you're on the high street itself surrounded by gorgeous gift shops, lovely pubs and a great choice of restaurants. The apartment itself Is beautiful we absolutely loved the nautical theme throughout, it was clean and modern, whilst feeling incrediably homely! We slept very well and the beds are super comfy! It's the added touches that make it...a DVD Collection, milk, sugar, biscuits, and I have to say the chilling wine fridge was very well-received! The only thing I would suggest for improvement is to have a facility for recycling, as there wasn't any recycling bags for us to use for glass etc. We would definitley love to stay again and will be recommending to anyone who is looking to stay on the Isle of wight rather then stay in a guest house. A perfect apartment to catch up with friends as we did, or for couples and families.

"Clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped"

Clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped, the owners have taken trouble to think of everything to make this a home from home. We (two adults, two children, aged 9 and 2) spent one happy week her… More
