About Grant & Ellen Vincent

We have lived and worked in Cowes for nearly 30 years. We have travelled the world but still love Cowes despite living in the Caribbean for over 8 years.

Grant & Ellen Vincent purchased this Apartment in 2013

Why Grant & Ellen Vincent chose Cowes

We viewed many many properties over the last 5 years looking for THE apartment - and finally we found No 47. Its fantastic location sold it straight away and we still love it. We hope you will as well.

What makes this Apartment unique

Unique benefits - well its got to be its location and full panoramic windows looking over the marina, Solent and River Medina. Great location to view Cowes week yacht racing and the famous fireworks. Also check out our 15% discount on Red Funnel ferry fares!!! Please ensure that you request a unique discount code prior to making ferry reservation!

You will be asked to phone him as you travel across the Solent to arrange a convenient time to show you in. This is especially important at busy times of year and in order to provide you with the best service. Cowes is an international sailing centre so there lots relating to sailing and motorboats. However, the Island has magnificent walks, hiking and cycling opportunities and is geared up for the tourists to enjoy a vast range of activities. These include historic palaces and castles, music events (throughout the year), to beaches and the theme parks of Blackgang Chine, Robin Hill and Amazon World. The island is famous as Dinosaur Island due to the large number of fossils and dinosaur remains that have been found - so whether you take part in an activity or combining the beaches and playing in rock pools there's always plenty to do whether you'r visiting as a family or here on your own.

                                                              Nice location let down by substandard appartment

                                                              Andrew H.

                                                              Lovely helpful person to meet us.

                                                              Bathroom shower dangerously uncontrollable.

                                                              Furniture tired and soggy feeling.

                                                              We never used the cooking facilities so cant comment.

                                                              Very old washer and dishwasher so far too noisy to use when in the apartment.

                                                              Dated audio system with no facility for iphone or similar music.

                                                              Lots of other little things.

                                                              Broken toilet seat.

                                                              And lastly the bed was just awful. Too small, too low, old fashioned lumpy and noisy.

                                                              For the sake of a bit of investment it could be lovely.

                                                              The asset has been sweated.

                                                              Superb apartment in Cowes

                                                              Alan G.

                                                              We stayed at this apartment for a few days -we are a couple , our daughter and 2 young grand daughters.

                                                              The apartment is stunning , very comfortable ,beautifully kitted out with everything you could possibly want in a holiday home , wonderfully clean with crisp clean bed linen and fluffy fresh white towels. We had a cot and highchair supplied for the baby and our 3 year old loved having her own bedroom with a fantastic cabin bed. All beds were comfy apart from the sleigh bed in the master bedroom which is very creaky . The views from every window but especially from the main area are amazing . The property manager Graham was especially helpful and came over within 5 minutes when I rang him to ask if there was a highchair available .

                                                              We didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning at some point, probably when it isn't snowing and we can then use the balconies.

                                                              We had a very enjoyable 4 night stay. The apartment was lovely and clean and home from home with Wi-Fi too! You couldn't ask for more. Extremely comfortable and spacious with views over the harbour, it was a pleasure to come back to the apartment after a long day out and relax. The location was ideal, close to town with lots of places to eat and drink and shop! We would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and family. Thank you Grant and Ellen, we really enjoyed our stay.
