Rosemary McClean purchased this house in 2012

Why Rosemary McClean chose Cowes

We love to travel and know the importance of having a comfortable, clean place to stay. The Shebeen is not fancy, don't come expecting 5 star - but it is relaxing. It is in Cowes, (with all the benefits of shops and restaurants close by) but is very quiet and crowd free, even in high season.

What makes this house unique

The Shebeen backs onto a reserve. An 8 minute walk on bush and beach tracks takes you to Red Rocks Beach.

You will see the local Wallabies (not for very long as they bound away) but sometimes they come up and watch us through the back fence.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and found the beds were really comfortable and the area was really well set out and useable. The deck is great and we used the area a lot as it flowed well. Everything we needed was there plus more. Thank you Rosie for a wonderful break after a hectic week. Just nice to relax and catch up

Great location, dog-friendly, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, 2 kids and a dog) spent a lovely weekend at the Shebeen in January 2016. The house is in a great location - we enjoyed our stroll from the back yard through the bush to the beach. We brought our elderly dog with us and it was comforting to know that he was secure while we explored other attractions on the island (Penguin Parade, A Maze 'N' Things). Dogs aren't allowed off-lead on the beach at the back of the property, but he loved his swim at the dog-beach at the end of Graydens Road. The owner, Rosie, was extremely helpful and accommodating. The house also offers lots of games, books etc and a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Unfortunately we didn't have time to take full advantage of these, but this would be a perfect place for a large group to spend an extended holiday. Hopefully we will come back for a longer stay some time in the future.
