About Sandy Brann

Had holiday home on Island for over 30 years, our children always loved their holidays on the Isle of Wight and we enjoyed life here beaches, cafes, bars and the people. When all the children had flown the nest we decided to move here and bought the house next door for our children with their children to enjoy. Now they are buying their own houses in Cowes so we can now let ours out to you.

Sandy Brann purchased this house in 2012

Why Sandy Brann chose Isle of Wight

We love Cowes because there is always something going on and the sea views are brilliant. There are so many places of interest in the Isle of Wight which are easily accessible from Cowes.

What makes this house unique

7 Melbourne Place is within easy walking distance of the town with its food shops,restaurants and pubs also walking distance of the yacht clubs.

For watching the yachts or lying in the sun the green is just a minute away and for the children to play.

Gurnard is 15 mins walk with its beach, children's play area and beach cafe.

The house was great and Sandy was very welcoming. It is great for families, with lots to do.

The house is well equipped with everything you need. The views across the Solent are amazing. The Needles, Osborne House are only a short drive away. Highly recommend

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely short break staying in this great little house. The location was perfect, so near to the sea front and handy for the shops and restaurants in Cowes. The sea view was fantastic, even better than expected.

We found the house very comfortable with everything we needed for our holiday. The welcome pack of bread, milk etc was much appreciated.

Hope to return again soon for a longer stay.

Perfectly located property to see the island

  • 4 of 5

A warm welcome by Sandy and a lovely welcome pack after our trip down from Yorkshire. Warm, clean accommodation very well located for a gentle stroll into Cowes. The floating bridge was out of action which extended certain journeys but with such wonderful scenery we couldn't complain.
