Perfect property in good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property last February and had a great time. It is cosy and has everything you might need. It is very close to the shops and the seafront.

The communication with the owner was good.

I would recommend this property without any hesitation.

Pleasant property, but overly extended, not really an 8 person property.

  • 2 of 5

Good location, near to Cowes town centre. However, this created a problem with parking...we had to buy a temporary residents' parking permit. Quirky property - extended to accommodate eight people, but neither sitting or dining room could seat eight. Problems with both the heating and hot water, leaving us without each on a daily basis until the boiler had been manually reset. The radiator didn't work in the main living area, leaving it feeling cold. Not suitable for young children ... dangerous stairs & landings, where children could fall through/off. Unfortunately, also there were problems with the drains. Overall, we had a good time, as we love Cowes, but sadly wouldn't recommend the property.

Owner's Response: The guests booked for six people and arrived with eight. There have been eight guests in the house several times this year so we weren't worried. The guests put nappies down the toilet blocking the drains and then denied responsibility for having done so. They then suggested I pay half of the cost of unblocking the drains. Strange how the day after arrival they emailed to say 'loving the house' but when brought to book over their actions all of a sudden it becomes not recommended The property is presented with no parking, this is because it doesn't have parking, or a swimming pool, or herds of Wildebeest roaming through the parkland. Prior to being a holiday home, it was rented as a main home to six people with young children who didn't find it in any way unsafe.. There was problem with the boiler which was rectified the morning after arrival. . A most frustrating group who I am share my feeling that we would prefer they did not return.

The Isle of Wight region

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, as sailing became a popular sport, endorsed by the royal family. In 1854, the Royal Yacht Squadron was moved into Cowes Castle, the former Tudor fort, and the name of Cowes has been synonymous with yachting ever since.

Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs.


Too many festivals, attractions and activities to mention them all.

Cycling festival


Isle of Wight music festival

Osborne House
