About the Owner

We live in Bedfordshire which is about as far away from the sea as you can get, so we go down to the Isle of Wight as much as we can. All the places we own have fantastic sea views, it's so important to us to have the sea close by. We like our visitors to be able to share these fantastic views too.

Second bedroom not suitable

  • 1 of 5

The second bedroom is not suitable at all - it is more like a boxroom, with no wardrobe storage at all, and very little other storage. The bed is the bottom half of a bunk bed and the poor mattress has a foam topper on it, with a waterproof mattress protector of the sort used with children As an adult, it was probably the most uncomfortable and unsuitable bed I have ever slept upon. The bed was clearly meant for a child, not an adult. I did not expect to have to move onto a sofa bed, with all the added inconvenience, in order to get a decent night's sleep - and no, I don't expect an orthopaedic mattress, just a decent mattress. I do not consider a bottle of wine plus a very nasty email from the owner, to be a suitable recompense for a ruined holiday.

Easy parking, clean and comfy, with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This property has parking right outside the door. It is next to the floating bridge but there is no noise disturbance as the double glazing is so good.

The sliding doors to the upper deck give fabulous views to watch the boats going up and down the Medina and out to the Solent.

It is clean and compact with everything you need.

We did a food shop in Cowes and walked back with it before we realised there is a Waitrose within minutes walking distance from the house!

Don't forget your loo roll and washing up liquid!

Lovely location, brilliantly furnished, all you could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

We just love this house, its fantastic balcony is a joy to sit on and watch the world sail by and its central location in Cowes makes it easy to access all parts on the Island, with the added bonus that you are two minutes from the Ferry terminal. We will be back next year!!

This property in East Cowes is just fantastic..

Comfortable and spacious enough for two adults and a nipper, and a view to die for.

If like us you enjoy watching the world go by with a glass of wine in your hand, this is the place for you!

A visit to the local Italian restaurant " Tonolinis" in West Cowes is also a must.....

A superb fish stew!!
