Fantastic house in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best holiday rental house we have stayed in. Loads of space for two families (ten of us in total). House was very clean, well furnished and warm. Excellent location - five minutes walk into centre of Cowes.

Communication with Chris was prompt and easy. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

A beautiful home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cliffhanger was delightful. As a party of 9 that included two children, we were spoiled for space in which to sit together and enjoy each other's company.

The house itself is done up to a high standard and had all the amenities one could ask for. Its location also made it ideal.

Communications with the owner has been prompt and helpful and we benefited greatly from the detailed instructions left on site .

We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends planning a visit to the Isle of Wight.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic, spacious property well located in the centre of Cowes. Great for families or larger groups.

Myself and 5 others stayed at the property for a long weekend in February. The property is in fantastic condition and set out over 5 floors with a wonderful roof terrace. There was plenty of space within the property with 5 good sized bedrooms, kitchen, dining room and TV room.

The booking process with Chris was really easy and he was able to accommodate a later check out time to suit our plans (this was helped by the fact the property was not booked for the next day but all the same this was something which not all owners would have been so accommodating of).

Location wise the property is 2 minutes from the centre of Cowes so ideal for walking to the pub and other amenities.

Our family celebrated Christmas at this gorgeous house. So comfortable with beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. So many interesting aspects from the spiral staircase to the fabulous view from the roof. Also very central to the town area which was an added bonus . Highly recommend .

Very stylish house, central yet tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family break - 5 couples ranging in age from 23 to 83. We all loved it. The location is perfect with the buzzing centre of Cowes a 5 minute walk in one direction and a tranquil park, with tennis courts, just 5 minutes in the other direction. Views from the top bedroom and from the roof terrace are probably the best anywhere in Cowes. We didn't even need to get out of bed to see stunning views all across the Solent .

The house was beautiful , just a pleasure to be in, well equipped, very comfortable. It was great to have a dining table to seat all ten of us.

The perfect base for a stay on the Island
