Owner's Response: Great to get another nice review! Now the winters here its time to think about those wild cliff top walks, great pub lunches and then coming back to tea and the log fire. Wildlife is still vibrant especially the red squirrels hunting for food.
There must be more bridleways and seaside walking/cycling per square mile on the island than anywhere else in Britain.

Stunning private hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
Simply perfect! Lovely beach house type cottage with its own grounds, overlooking the silent. Gorgeous bedrooms. Very private, yet only a few minutes from the beach and 5 minutes drive from Cowes. Gurnard which is 5 minutes walk away is beautiful with its beach, cafe, pub and promenade. Owners very helpful. We would love to return! Lots of special family moments created.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at the Blue House. The house is superbly furnished and offers everything you will need and more. The quality of bedding and towels etc is first class.The lounge and 2 of the 4 bedrooms have doors directly onto the decking area, excellent with a morning cup of coffee...
The vast decking and lawn area have views across the Solent to the New Forest and watching sunset with a glass of wine has to be done.
Hopefully we will return to the Blue House and we have already recommended it to friends. Undoubtedly 5 stars.

Fantastic spot for a relaxing break

  • 5 out of 5
Thanks Tim - what a wonderful property in a great location!

The minute we got on the ferry across to the Isle of Wight the stresses and strains of the 'real world' begin to slip away and from there it just kept getting better.

The Blue House is truly a fantastic place to spend some time in complete comfort with everything you could wish for on hand. We were lucky enough to benefit from great weather so being able to fling open the doors to the wonderful garden and spend as much time outside as in was a real bonus.

Having your own pathway down through woods to a secluded beach was fantastic and meant there was no great compulsion to venture further afield though when we did drag ourselves away, bike rides into Cowes and trips out to some of the Island's attractions proved great fun for the family.

Overall, between the property and the general feel of the Isle of Wight, the whole trip was reminiscent of holidays from another age when the days were long and carefree and there was no end of joy to be had from life's simple pleasures!

Can't wait to return!

Spent a week in the 'The Blue House' with friends - 8 people in total 4 adults, 4 older kids. Loads of space inside and out. All the tech requirements of teenagers fully met. Gorgeous location, the sunsets were particularly pretty. Great property, clean, stylish and very, very comfortable. Very different to our own propeties, we really felt we were living the beach life and wish we had booked for longer! Have no hesitation in recommending.

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 out of 5
In October a group of us rented the lovely Blue House - it was absolutely amazing. Stunningly decorated (if you don't believe me, just check the February 2010 issue of Coast magazine!) and situated conveniently close to Cowes, Blue House is the perfect retreat. The house is geniusly laid-out with the bedrooms a comfortable distance from the living area - perfect for families or those friends who like to retire earlier than the rest. The owner is lovely and renting the home was a breeze. I should also mention that everything has been thought of from the dvd/iPod player to the fully kitted out kitchen.

I've already recommended the home to a number of friends and I will definitely be returning each year as well.

The village of Gurnard is right next to the famous yachting centre of Cowes. The popular Gurnard Sailing Club is two minutes walk away. Local facilities include; pubs, paper shops and a greengrocer. The island is a great place for visitors especially children with a wealth of activities including: cycling,walking,windsurfing,sailing,tennis and numerous attractions and activity centres.

We can arrange yacht charters, rib rides, fishing trips and even parascending. You name it and the island probably does it.

For walkers there are hundreds of spectacular walks across downland and headland, bridleways criss cross the island.

A short walk down through your private wood takes you to your beach, great for evening swims, bar-b-Q's, fishing or just watching the sun go down with a beer in your hand.

For wildlife enthusiasts the garden is a haven for Red Squirrel, badgers, foxes, woodpeckers and numerous other birds.

Other Activities: Sailing, Kite surfing,
