                                                              Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 48 Marinus Apartment... I travelled with my Son and being in my eighties the direct lift access was a real bonus. The view of the Marina was amazing ever changing and very entertaining, we were lucky enough to see The Harmony of The Sea the on its way to Southampton Huge!! The apartment is very well equipped beautifully decorated with high quality fittings throughout. There is so much to see and do on this lovely Island if you manage to drag yourself away from that view... perfect for cocktails and some R&R!! You will not be disappointed. Highly recommend Cowes Holiday Homes and Many thanks to Graham for his 5*customer service and a faultless stay...Jean and David.

                                                              Used as a base for cycle trip. Property was well equipped and big enough to comfortably accommodate 17 of us. Great location and garden. Looking forward to a return trip.

                                                              Our second visit in six months

                                                              Please see our previous review which is still relevant. The Lifeboat Inn in East Cowes is worth a visit. The Grill in the High Street should be good as well. Unfortunately it opened the day that we departed. We loved the apartment, the view is fantastic.
