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!

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.

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 you'r visiting as a family or here on your own.

Wonderful accomodation - ideal location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Stunning location

  • 4 of 5

The views are truly mesmerising ! And the location, near the shops, just a few minutes walk away. Shame the chain link ferry down the road is now closed to cars. From the flat you could sit for hours watching the activity on the water. Unfortunately the sofas/chairs are obviously old and disappointingly not as comfortable as they look and could do with reupholstering. The double bed mattress in the main room has a dip in the middle and the frame, although impressive to look at, is really creaky and noisy every time you move - not comfortable for 2. The 2 single beds were fine. The bunk arrangement is OK for kids but very squashed for adults. The kitchen table is huge, too big really for the space it's in. The West facing balcony furniture has seen better days and one chair leg was broken. The East facing balcony was the sunny side but had no chairs. We had to move the lounge furniture around so that 4 of us (when not looking at the view) could watch the TV together. This sounds like a lot of criticism but sitting and sleeping comfortably are vital ingredients for a happy holiday stay, especially for a high rental property such as this. We would not consider a return visit, purely because of the comfort problems. A shame because we loved the location and stunning views. With just a few tweaks this could be the perfect flat.
