      Cowes Townhouse

      A really lovely stay, the hosts were very helpful, even giving us directions on the phone for the last bit of the journey. Only thing , we were expecting a townhouse, and we found the property was an apartment above the shops. This was not a problem, however I have bad knees and the many stairs in the property were tricky for me. The first set are very narrow and steep, so people with limited agility may find them a little challenging . Saying that, once up the stairs the place was immaculate with a lovely view of the boats in dry dock outside the kitchen window. We did not spend that much time in the home as we were out and about the wonderful island. Great location for popping out for supper, Coast is highly recommended . With my knees I would not stay again, however my Son and his girlfriend would and loved it very much. 5 star place.

      4/5 Good


        Clean, excellent location in the centre of everything. Great communication from the owners. Would definitely recommend.


          Lovely cottage, shame about the diggers.

          We decided we needed a girls weekend away to recharge our batteries and chose Will and Fiona's 'Marina View' cottage as the perfect base. The cottage is simply but, beautifully furnished, well equipped and very central for shopping and eating out. Unfortunately we were not told of the work taking place at the marina and a 'heads up' on this would have been useful. The heavy plant, including a large breaker worked all weekend. At least we were on our way home shortly after they started on the Sunday. I suggested Fiona would like to offer us some small compensation as, our weekend was not as chilled as planned. Unfortunately she felt this was not her responsibility! Oh well, perhaps the cottage should be called 'Digger View' until the work is complete. The girls from Oxfordshire.

          4/5 Good

            Clean, centrally located and comfortable

            The house was perfectly located on the high street. It is beautifully clean and very comfortable. The initial steps in are very steep and is over 3 floors so not good for anyone that struggles with stairs. We really enjoyed our stay.

            5/5 Excellent

              perfect for a girls weekend away

              We had a lovely weekend away in Cowes, the accommodation was just right for us. It slept 7 adults comfortably. It was central to everything we wanted. It was lovely spread over 3 floors. We would recommend this property to anyone.
