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 Isle of Wight

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ray and I both were able to access the apartment with ease. We had a great 4 days on the isle and the apartment was very comfortable. I will provide a most favourable review shortly and definitely recommend your apartment to our friends.

Notes:
Our apartment is managed by Cowes Property Management Services. Our Manager Graham will greet you. 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 your visiting as a family or here on your own.

Lovely, spacious apartment in a great position

  • 5 of 5

I was a little nervous about using Home Away as it wasn't something we'd done before but all went brilliantly without a hitch. The communication from the owners was comprehensive and Graham, the property manager, provided a super meet and greet. The apartment itself is very nice indeed and just as pictured on the website. The views are fantastic and it is a only a short walk to the lovely old, winding streets of Cowes with its many restaurants, shops and pubs.

My only (small) gripe would be that the extra single bed that had been placed in the main bedroom (presumably for a previous party of guests) did detract somewhat from the feeling of space and comfort in the room.

My ten year old daughter was very comfortable in the second bedroom and she was most complimentary about the wardrobe and cupboard space!

Altogether a lovely stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 47 Marinus.

Thank you Grant, Ellen and Graham.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I took my two children, aged 8 and 12, for a week in the summer. We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. It was spacious, clean and had lovely views. The agent, Graham, was fantastic from start to finish. It was always a relief to get back to a lovely place after a day out. The Isle of wight wasn't for us but the apartment certainly was. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The best waterfront property we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed and comfortable property with impressive views across the yacht clubs. If you want to say in the TV and audio systems are excellent and WIFI has a good signal.

Situated just five minutes’ walk from the town and with easy access by car to the rest of the Island it provided an ideal carefree break. Local amenities are first class with restaurants, bars and shops to suit all tastes.

A fabulous spot

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 2 adults and 4 children (aged between 3-12) and we stayed for a week over October half term. We had a wonderful time. The views from the apartment are just as stunning as in the photo, and it is a bright, spacious place to spend time (even with 4 children). 47 Marinus is well equipped and was spotless. It is an easy, quick walk into Cowes where we enjoyed meandering the shops, and finding treasure on the pebbly beach. The central location meant I never had to worry about what to feed everyone after a day out - Sainsbury's (open until 10pm) and M&S Simply Food (open till 8) are minutes away by foot; not to mention lots of different restaurants in the town centre for those not hampered by Too Many Children. We had a brilliant day at Blackgang Chine, staying late to enjoy the illuminations, and the special Halloween event on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway was fabulous, highly recommended. The proximity to the Ferry when it was time to leave was also welcome - and we loved watching it come in and out during our stay. We would certainly return to 47 Marinus, and recommend it others. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Also nice sleeping rooms and bathrooms.

Great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This flat is great accommodation, very comfortable and well equipped in a great location. Cowes is a lively town and very convenient base to visit the island. This flat is very close to the car ferry and has secure parking.
