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.

fantastic location great views and very peaceful.
The apartment was excellent and well equipped and in a perfect position, particularly with the panoramic views of the harbour. Would definitely recommend it.
We arrived at this apartment on Saturday 20th April and our overall impression was WOW! Once the Ferrys started rolling in backwards and forward it got to be OH... However, it wasn't a deal breaker and we would stay here again and recommend it. That said, there were one or two downsides. The main bedroom mattress sloped off to the left (looking at the bed from the bottom) which made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep, this is the only reason for 4 stars and not 5. Next day on closer inspection we discovered the base of the bed was broken and looked to have been sort of repaired. We had to put a spare duvet under the side of the bed to prop it up. Sadly on the Sunday I was taken ill and we spent Bank Holiday Monday at A&E. On Tuesday morning we went home and I spent the rest of the week in hospital having a ruptured hernia repaired. We can only comment therefore on three days! The second downside was the kitchen food prep utensils could do with updating and you definitely need a colander, even though the lids of the saucepans have drainage, the steam means you can't see what you're doing! One of the chopping boards was damaged quite badly on one side too and I wouldn't use it in case of bacteria. These are very small things and seem like tedious whinges. If we go back to resume our break we would like to stay here again.
Dear Robert Sorry to hear about your health problems which I hope have now improved.
Thanks for your review which was helpful as we were unaware of the bed issue which has now been rectified. For information the bed and mattress were newly fitted less than a year ago and were high quality fittings. It appears that part of the base frame had been damaged and was not obvious when making the bed up. We thank you for reporting this in your review and if reported at the time we would have arranged repair/replacement.
As regards the kitchen equipment we provide regular replacements and have added a colander to the inventory. In addition the apartment has just undergone significant upgrade to lounge furniture and decoration as part of our regular maintenance of the apartment.
We always encourage our guests to report issues they may find immediately to us so that we can hopefully resolve any issue that may have arisen during their stay and thus make their stay a more enjoyable experience. Hope to see you again soon. Regards Grant & Ellen
High quality accommodation in a fantastic location
Will come back !
Great location with stunning sea views
Very comfortable apartment, well appointed in a wonderful location overlooking the marina. Good to be met by Graham’s daughter on arrival to show us around and explain various technicalities concerning the apartment. Local amenities were very good, restaurants, chain ferry and shops. We did have a problem with the hot water which seemed to run hot and cold with no control. Otherwise the apartment would have warranted 5 stars.
Great place to stay even in winter!
47 Marinus is definitely luxurious and exceeded our expectations for a 3 week stay in January. The view from the windows of the ferry arriving and departing plus other harbour activity kept us entertained when we weren’t touring the island by bus.
Furniture, chinaware, cutlery, kitchen equipment, WiFi and television were all ‘hotel class’. Master bedroom most comfortable and roomy en-suite bathroom was a bonus.
The High Street, a 5 minute walk away, supplied all our shopping needs and meant we could get along without a vehicle.

Thanks for your great review. We’re glad you enjoyed the new furniture upgrade and redecorated lounge area just installed for 2019 season. Grant and Ellen
