About Steve Chalker

I live and work in Hertfordshire, England, with a wife and young family. We are fun loving and enjoy being on or near the sea whenever possible.

Steve Chalker purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Steve Chalker chose Isle of Wight

My wife and I recently completed our Day Skipper sailing qualifications and wanted to spend more time near the water. We fell in love with the energy and vibe in West Cowes that becomes so peaceful in winter. We love the tranquility of walking from the house along the waterfront whilst the kids play on the beaches and watching the boats sail by. A wave of relaxation hits us as we step aboard the High Speed Ferry knowing that we are truely leaving the rat race behind...even if only temporarily.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is ideally located right in the centre of Cowes, only a few minutes from shops, restaurants and the quaint highstreet. The warm and cosy 150 year old cottage is a perfect getaway and you feel amongst island life as soon as you arrive. There is no need to drive anywhere and walking in the sea air and watching the boats go by is so relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Emily F (Wilts): We had a lovely stay. The best thing about your property was the location, it was right next to the town centre and more importantly 'pubs' - we just wanted to get away and have a few drinks to be honest and the location was ideal. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable, I look forward to my next trip to the Isle of Wight, which we would definitely consider your property again for.

Close to all you need

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed her. You can not beat the location across the road from the high street but very quiet. Just a short walk to the shops and the sea front. Everything you need in a holiday home not just the normal 6 of everything lots of extras. The top bedroom is up very steep stairs and you do need to be carefull when going up and down. We would stay again

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a great location in Cowes with shops and restaurants within 1 minute walk of the house.

There was a small problem when we arrived at 9pm as the house hadn't been cleaned or beds made up etc as the cleaning company thought we were arriving the next morning. Steve was really good and got in touch straight away with the cleaning company who were around by 10.15pm to make up beds for us.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice well equipped house. Room for 6 adults. Very close to the high street but still quite. Parking permit works well. The stairs are steep so need to be careful when going up and down.

Excellent location for Cowes

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay here at this lovely Victorian house in Cowes.

The place us very well equipped and has three spacious bedrooms, though the top one keeps your calves busy getting there!

The location could not be better, with a very short walk to the local high street, bars and restaurants.

Parking is available either via a car park opposite or guest parking permits.

If and when I return to Cowes I would definitely look this place up first.

Nice property and handy base to explore the area

  • 5 of 5

I booked this accommodation to use as a base while working in the area and it fulfilled all of my requirements perfectly. I could walk to work via the local chain ferry and it is very handy for all of the amenities of the town. In the house itself the kitchen is very well equipped, the bathroom is nice, the bedroom on the top floor is also nice, but as the listing said it is a very steep staircase to get up there! All in all a good place to stay and I have already booked a return.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Perfect for crew accommodation given proximity to major marinas and town centre.

Coast/Beach:

Beaches and marinas very close by.

Travel:

The property is 5 minutes walk from the high speed Cowes Ferry. Whilst the islands bus services are very good and frequent, a car is recommended for exploring further than Cowes itself. There is a public car park across the road, and visitor permits are available upon request for a small fee for utilising on street parking.

Distances:

Slap bang in the heart of Cowes itself - most of the island is only 20 mins away by car. There are innumerable attractions on the island including steam railway, adventure theme parks, zoo as well as more natural attractions of beautiful beaches, the Needles and Alum Bay.

Further Details:

The cottage contains lots of leaflets from local attractions as well as maps and charts of the local area for planning days inside and out.
