We stayed for a long weekend as we had a wedding in Cowes.The house was clean and very homely. It is in a very good location, walking distance into town centre. Would definitely recommend and would certainly stay again.

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.

Longwood edge is a beautiful cabin style accomodation, with two open verandas, the front one looks out to sea, and the second looks out to the private secluded garden,. The interior is very well executed with style and flair, two lovely bedrooms, all beds were very comfortable, the bathroom is large in size, and had all amenities required. The living area and kitchen was open planned, with a very attractive wood burner, cute and cosy. The kitchen was well equipped for those who wish to stay in and cook. Our stay was fabulous, we loved the house, it's attractive, and very welcoming, a home from home, a hidden Gem, we highly recommend staying here, we will definitely be returning.
