Enjoy the perfect stay at Cliffhanger, on the beautiful Isle of Wight. This stunning 5 double bedroom, 4 bathroom, holiday home is the perfect base for enjoying a visit to Cowes. Sea air, beautiful beaches, country walks, and cozy pub lunches, make Cliffhanger the perfect destination. Fabulous accommodation, wonderful sea views, and a prime location near the town centre, and seafront, make this home the number one choice for families, groups of friends, or a Corporate event.

A stunning period house overlooking Cowes Harbour, benefiting from a quiet position, yet close to the sea front, restaurants and shops, and only a few minutes walk from the RedJet high speed passenger ferry. This well appointed property with 5 double bedrooms, 3 en-suite shower rooms, and fabulous big family bathroom, is the perfect place for holiday makers and Corporate guests. The vehicle hardstand at the front of the house has parking for one car. Additional parking is available by arrangement.

The impressive entrance hall provides plenty of space for new arrivals and entertaining, and the sitting room has comfortable seating for 10 people, with direct access to the patio. Both rooms have underfloor heating, if required. The formal dining room has a beautiful wooden floor, original marble-surround fireplace, and dining table for 10. The spacious, fully equipped kitchen/diner has a tiled floor, with under-floor heating, loads of worktop space and seating for 8. The ground and 4 upper floors of the house are connected by a magnificent spiral staircase, giving the house the wow factor.

A 42" HD digital LED TV with Freeview and Netflix channels, and a DVD player, is fitted in the patio room. A similar 38" TV is fitted in the dining room, and a 32" model in the kitchen/dining room. Fibre optic BT Infinity broadband and wi-fi is available throughout the house.

At the back of the property, the attractive west-facing walled patio comes with comfortable rattan sofas, armchairs, and a barbecue. Perfect for relaxing "al fresco" with coffee, drinks, or dining with family and friends. The third floor master bedroom has a balcony, with wonderful sea views. The top of the house has a roof terrace accessed by a "ship's ladder" from the top floor landing. The roof terrace offers stunning views of the Harbour and Solent, as far as the mainland, and across the island towards the Downs.

18 Castle Road is the perfect destination, being a short walk from the high speed passenger ferry and close to the sea front, shops, restaurants and marina. An ideal base for holiday makers, families, yachtsmen, or Corporate guests.
