About Sarah Brown

We purchased the apartment as our Island retreat. Unfortunately, we are 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.

Sarah Brown purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Sarah Brown chose Isle of Wight

We purchased the property as our Island getaway; the views of the marina and The Solent are beautiful - there is always something to watch and yet it's a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Being on the edge of the town centre makes it an ideal base to explore the town and its facilities and the rest of the island with no where more than a 30 minute drive by car.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is ideally located right on the edge of Cowes town centre, shops, restaurants, bars and the quaint high street are on the door step as well as Cowes marina. The light and airy spacious apartment 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.

Fantastic seaside apartment in the heart of Cowes

My family stayed in this apartment while visiting Cowes and the apartment turned out to be perfect. Very well equipped in a fantastic location. The owners were very helpful during the booking process and throughout our stay. Highly recommended.

well appointed apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

A very nice spacious property with good views out over the solent. Every conceivable utensil you could possibly need in the kitchen was available. The master bedroom is spacious though lacked a wardrobe, however there is hanging cupboard in the hallway. The 2nd bedroom has 2 full size bunks which our 2 young kids enjoyed but it does share the room with the laundry and boiler, but this wasn't a problem. I would recommend this property as it is well furnished, maintained and in a great location.

Island Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was clean, spacious and beautifully presented. The location was fantastic. All amenities within a short walk. Views could not be better. From the side windows you can people watch and see the hustle and bustle of activity in the Main Street. The front window was absolutely ideal for watching the shipping and yachting to and from Southampton waters. Seeing the cruise ships and cargo ships at such a close proximity - we were almost reluctant to leave the apartment and explore the island. We definitely want to return.
