The communication from the owners was comprehensive and Graham, the property manager, provided a super meet and greet. The apartment itself is very nice indeed and just as pictured on the website. The views are fantastic and it is a only a short walk to the lovely old, winding streets of Cowes with its many restaurants, shops and pubs. My only (small) gripe would be that the extra single bed that had been placed in the main bedroom (presumably for a previous party of guests) did detract somewhat from the feeling of space and comfort in the room. My ten year old daughter was very comfortable in the second bedroom and she was most complimentary about the wardrobe and cupboard space! Altogether a lovely stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 47 Marinus. Thank you Grant, Ellen and Graham.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The apartment was very clean; has a fully-equiped kitchen; large tv and 2 reclining chairs; plenty of storage; 4 person dining table; good wi-fi; 2 comfortable single beds and a pleasant bathroom with a full complement of towels. The owners have gone above and beyond what would be expected with extras. There are annotated maps of the area; tea, coffee and milk laid out upon arrival and stationery set to name just a few. I would definitely recommend and stay again if I was in the area.
