LUXURY APARTMENT WITH STUNNING SOLENT VIEWS, ON COWES WATERFRONT

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cowes - Luxury apartment

Perfect for holidays and regattas. 2 bedrooms & bathrooms, sleeps 5. Balcony

The apartment is in a new development, with spectacular and panoramic views over the Solent and River Medina. It overlooks a busy marina with its many yachts. It is very close to the quaint and bustling centre of Cowes, with plenty of individual shops, restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Nearby are many tourist attractions, including Queen Victoria’s Osborne House.

The apartment would be ideal for those wishing to relax whilst enjoying the views over the Solent. It is ideally located for crew or families who want a comfortable environment from which to explore the island and its many attractions.

The second floor apartment (serviced by a lift) offers a spacious living area leading onto a balcony with spectacular views. There is a luxury fully equipped kitchen. The two bedrooms are light and airy, and have views of the River Medina. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. There is also a separate bathroom. There is a dedicated parking space and internet/Wi-Fi access is provided.

Additional Information on Cowes: There is a full programme of events which cater for the professional and amateur sailor, as well as the keen spectator, particularly throughout the summer months. Attractions include the many regattas, the start of the famous Round the Island race, Cowes Week, Dinghy Week, the Fastnet Race, Little Britain, various power boat competitions, not to mention the carnivals, balls and outside arenas which cater to these thrilling sporting challenges.

Cowes and East Cowes grew from a huddle of fishermen's shacks around two coastal forts built by Henry VIII on opposite banks of the River Medina and named after the two off-shore sandbanks or cows. The towns are linked by an old-fashioned chain ferry and have a tradition of fine ship building, dating from the reign of Elizabeth I. Then came the yacht building industry and the rest is history! Many people choose to have a base in the centre of Cowes and it is now possible to do so in the best possible situation and style.

Waitrose in Cowes: Waitrose has decided to invest in Cowes - they have recently opened their supermarket very close to our apartment, just on the other side of the chain link ferry, and close to the Red Funnel berth in East Cowes.

How to get to Cowes: Red Funnel fast passenger ferry from Southampton to Cowes every 30 minutes.

Red Funnel vehicle ferry from Southampton to East Cowes, opposite the apartment.

Wight link from Portsmouth to Fishbourne and from Lymington to Yarmouth.

Fast train service from London to Southampton, (approx. 1 hour 15 minutes) with connection to the Red Funnel ferries.

STUNNING, A REAL HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in other apartments in this development before and I can honestly say that this is the best, so far.
From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable. It was clean and tidy with everything we needed (Dishwasher, TV, Hi fi, WiFi, full compliment of crockery and cooking utensils, to name but a few) My 11 year old daughter was extremely pleased with her huge bed. The views from the balcony are great with many comings and goings of cruise ships to watch.
The easy access to Waitrose was an advantage, with just a short walk and a trip on the floating bridge to get there, literally 5-10 mins.
All in all we had a great holiday here and my daughter is already asking if we can go back next year!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is everything you could be looking for down to things like dishwasher tablets provided and a juicer all mod cons everything you could think of. The views are magnificent and a very good location to explore the whole island, But if you do not drive then this apartment is so close to the Cowes ferry you would not need to drive to get there. We had a wonderful time and when we visit again it will be in this apartment.

5 STAR APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for 6 nights and found it to be 5 star yet extremely homely. Immaculate and comfortable with wonderful views of the solent. A couple of minutes walk into Cowes centre and ten minutes to the beach of West Cowes. The beaches of East Cowes are well worth a visit, accessible by the chain ferry and a ten minute walk. It is a terrific area for enjoying walks.

There are many bars and restaurants locally but our first choice was the apartment balcony!!

Simply perfect.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed five days at this apartment. It was exactly as described. The beds are extremely comfy and we slept so well. Very clean and well maintained. You can watch the boats come and go from the lounge or on the balcony. Kitchen has everything you need and the apartment is open and gives lots of space. If you do not like limescale we would suggest taking a water filter jug but that is just us as we have one at home so really notice it when we don't have one. Location is good as there are lots of lovely restaurants and cafes to eat at. supermarkets close by. Lots of shops as well which are mainly targeted at sailoring as you would expect. Owners give you a great booklet which has all the best places to eat at and where everything is. They were also very efficient with the booking process and refunding our deposit. You can walk all the way to Gurnard which is very enjoyable so you don't really need a car for a short stay. I would definately recommend this property to other people and hope to return to it again in the future.

GOOD WELL EQUIPPED AND FURNISHED APARTMENT

  • 4 out of 5
Nicely positioned,comfortable apartment with good quality furnishings.Good views from the lounge with lots of boat and ferry activity. Balcony would be nice in the summer. It doesn't get any sun at all so too cold in Autumn/Winter.
Short walk into Cowes centre and a good walk along the esplanade as far as Gurnard. Very lucky with the weather for the time of year (November) and enjoyed some good coastal walks from Ventnor and around the Needles.
First time in IOW and not as up market as anticipated. Some of the resorts ( East Cowes,Sandown,Shanklin) a bit run down and tacky.

OUTSTANDING VIEWS

  • 5 out of 5
My sister and I wanted to take our 84 year old mother to an apartment that had all mod-cons, was easily accessible, was close to good restaurants and bars (without having to drive) and had something interesting to look at if the weather (in late September) was not great. This apartment really delivered on all levels.
The property was very well equipped and beautifully maintained and the owner and his local agent were very efficient and helpful, answering all questions I had in respect of the suitability of the property for mom.
A slight disappointment was that we were unable to walk along the marina footpath at the rear of the apartments as there was a lot of building work going on and barriers had been put up.
Cowes is a lovely town to wander around and we particularly enjoyed evening dining at Murrays Seafood Restaurant and Mojacs and lunch at the Red Duster. Octopus Garden is also worth a visit for the Beatles fans amongst us.
We found the apartment to be a good touring base for the island - the only slight problem being getting through Newport at certain times of day.
I would definitely recommend this property, Cowes and the Isle of Wight for an interesting short holiday. The island is so small that one week is plenty of time to see all the attractions it offers.

The Isle of Wight is a beautiful island offering many activities for all. It is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing break, family holiday, or partake in many of the activities available, at any time of the year. It is world famous for its sailing regattas. For those who wish to escape the modern world, the Island offers the visitor the opportunity to step back in time.

Over half the Island is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are many footpaths stretching over 500 miles. Why not indulge yourself in the Isle of Wight's fine restaurants, art galleries and historic houses? Queen Victoria's Osborne House is a short walk the other side of the Chain Ferry.

No where in the world conjures up images of the sailing scene like Cowes. Steeped in history, this charismatic town is a Mecca to yachtsmen and women from around the globe.

The town of Cowes faces the Solent and witnesses one of the most spectacular water sports arenas in the world. With its rich choice of sailing clubs, pubs and restaurants, the centre of Cowes offers entertainment for all. And there are many lovely shops selling all sorts of interesting things, not only sea and sailing related, and ideal for gifts or for your own use. And now Waitrose have decided to open - in East Cowes.
