About Lee Pidgeon

We have business interests both on the Isle of Wight and the mainland and we purchased the apartment as our Island home. Unfortunately, we are now unable to spend as much time on the Island as we would like and have therefore decided that we should rent the apartment when we're not using it.

The apartment is furnished and equipped as our home and not as a holiday let, which we're sure you will agree when you stay in our beautiful home.

Lee Pidgeon purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Lee Pidgeon chose Cowes

We purchased the property as our Island home; the views of the River Medina and The Solent are beautiful - there is always something to watch and yet it's a peaceful haven of tranquility away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is only 10 minutes walk from Cowes High Street with it's amazing shops, restaurants, pubs and bars and no where on the Island is more than 30 minutes away by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Marinus provided us with the perfet base for an early island holiday. Everything we needed was here including the weather. M&S in Newport provided many of our meals. Great greasy spoons, Ventnor Bay cafe, Totland pier and Till Gate in Bembridge for lunch. Highly recommended is the Cowes Tandorri. First class location for a first class holiday"

"We have enjoyed a lovely stay here. The apartment is very comfortable. The Anchor Inn in Cowes does great pub food and we have a nice meal at Lugleys on the Esplanade. Thanks for your help."

"......the apartment is so comfortable and of such good quality that we really didn't want to go home ......."

"We should like to thank you for use of your apartment. We loved the views and the fact that the Cowes is only 5 minutes walk away"

"We came for a long weekend - it wasn't long enough - we'll be back and next time for at least a week, and more likely two"

Just Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment Bright, Spacious & Fresh. Subtly furnished so easy on the eye, which made it a great place to relax, and watch the ever changing picture of the boats in the harbour, and passing by.

Great location to explore the Island. Only down side was the 'Chain Ferry service Still suspended'!! and as my partner has a mobility problem, was unable to use the water taxi. (the fault of the local authority not the apartment owner). We hope to return very soon

Lovely apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and well serviced. The area was very nice too. Plenty of shops etc within walking distance. The view over the harbour was great, especially watching the ships come in. We would definitely recommend to others and stay here again.

It was really great to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends at the apartment on the balcony whilst watching the boating and liners coming in.

Well furnished apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment 3 times so it feels like home now. It is convenient for all the restaurants and shops in Cowes village and nowhere is far by car, although this time we did not venture far because of the unusually high heat for the time of the year. We spent a lot of time on the lovely cool shady balcony with the most amazing views - there is always something going on so it never gets boring. The apartment is well managed by Mandy & her Mom - a lovely touch is a vase of fresh flowers which lasted throughout our stay - the TV takes some getting used to but once you get the hang of it, it's fantastic and has some great films on Netflix - we don't usually watch much TV on holiday but this time it was a welcome diversion from the high temperature outside!! We will be back next year!

Walk to town & bus - leave the car at home!

  • 5 of 5

lovely clean apartment with everything you could need. The ever-changing view of the yachts and the ferry is always interesting. An easy walk into town and to bus routes makes a car unnecessary. Mandy was very helpful in making key collection & hand off very easy.

The apartment is located a very short walk to the centre of Cowes (7 minutes) and the host of local atmosphere restaurants and the harbour, lots of boutique shops and cafes. The atmosphere in Cowes is brilliant all year round.
