We enjoyed this home so much that we are already planning our next trip. The owner / Manager has gone to great lengths to provide every thing people on holiday would want. We were welcomed with a basket of goodies which we appreciated after the drive. The crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils were top class. The furniture is comfortable and placed just where one would want them. The rooms have everything needed with plump doonas and pillows and blankets provided. The mattresses were really comfortable, even the ones on the bunks. And the Television! OMG! the biggest we have seen with beautiful clear signals. The games room/ garage downstairs has a pool table with plenty of ping pong balls and bats. There was this football game which was a riot! There was fishing equipment and upstairs one of the wall cupboards were filled to the brim with games and children's toys. And the 'piece de resistance', of course was the fire place! It easily warmed the whole house. We did not have to use the air conditioning system. And somebody had gone to a lot of trouble to provide 2 full large baskets of firewood and even placed some in the fire box for us. There is a magnificent view from the deck at the top. The master has a large picture window and we had sunlight streaming through in the morning. This large bedroom has an ensuite. A table has been provided just outside in this area and it was a favourite for my kids for breakfast. This is the highest level in the house and we were able to see French island which sits just opposite across the sea. A few minutes walk brought us to the beach which was of course a favourite with the little ones and some of the like minded adults in the family! My grand kids collected shells and even brought home a baby crab which we had to rush back to the beach. The house is about 8 to 10 minutes from Cowes town centre. We were very grateful for the beautiful whether which we suspected the house owner may have included. All in all I would give this particular home and the care taken by the owner/manager a clean 100%. I must add that the house is not brand new. It is an old design and you would not expect grand toilets and fittings. But everything was fully functional and the cleanliness of the whole house was amazing. I have taken the trouble to write this review because I know that people who are looking for a comfortable holiday home, want something good with excellent service and value for money.
