A great apartment handily situated for West Cowes centre. Great for exploring the island and its fantastic beaches! The booking process was easy as were the directions to the apartment from the ferry. The apartment itself was very modern and well-appointed and the free wi-fi was a bonus. All in all we had a great stay and the kids enjoyed it too. Recommended!

We had a great stay at this apartment. It was spacious and was well equipped. We enjoyed watching the boats from the lounge window and found the location very convenient in the centre of Cowes. All the administration for our stay was dealt with very efficiently and I was impressed our deposit was sent back within two days of the end of the stay. I definitely recommend this apartment.

Great apartment, beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need! Light, very spacious, really comfortable and great views.

April stay.

  • 5 of 5

So glad we decided to book through HomeAway and book this apartment through Mark. What a gem. The apartment itself is fantastic, it was everything we needed for our 3 night stay.

We was greeted by Charlotte who explained everything we need to know about the apartment and how everything worked. The car was in a gated area which was brilliant and access to the apartment was very easy with a key fob. The best thing about this place is the location. A 5 minute walk and you are in the heart of Cowes with its amazing pubs/bars to its little cafès and delis. I would 100% recommend this place to anybody. Thanks Mark.

Very well located

  • 4 of 5

Well located, well equipped and a real home from home. 5 minutes walk into Cowes where there are lots of eateries although the kitchen is very user friendly too. Good WiFi and parking. View of Red Funnel ferries going in and out. Recommended.

Weekend stay 1st October

  • 5 of 5

The appartment was better than we had imagined. Perfect location, excellent facilities, comfortable furnishings. We had a great meal at the local Spanish tapas restaurant on Saturday evening, and on Sunday it was easy to get to Osbourne House by bus. Lovely cafes and pubs in the town, everything you could want on your doorstep! Wish we could have stayed longer, so will certainly be back, and will recommend this property.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in this lovely apartment which is ideally situated and has stunning views over Cowes Harbour. My husband and I could spend hours on the balcony just watching the numerous boats and cruise liners that pass by. As usual Marks organisation of the holiday was excellent and we received a warm welcome from Charlotte. We hope to return to the Isle Of Wight again soon and to this apartment which we would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Fantastic Apartment, Brilliant Location

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed over the Bank Holiday weekend. The apartment is bright, clean and modern, very well equipped and in a wonderful location just a few minutes walk from the centre of Cowes with a range of pubs and restaurants. There was plenty of room for 4 adults

The apartment is on the 1st floor with a lift, which was much appreciated as 2 of us took part in a round the island walk while we were visiting. The balcony looks out across the harbour and you can watch the Red Funnel ferries coming and going. The car park is secure, and you need a key fob to open the gates, both coming in and going out.

We couldn't have asked for more and if we come back to the IOW, we would certainly stay in this apartment again.

The nearest beach is just a 5 minute drive away, but nowhere on the Isle of Wight is more than a 30 minute drive


Ferry services are provided by Wightlink from Portsmouth to Fishbourne (15 minute drive to the apartment) and from Lymington to Yarmouth (then a 20 minute drive) or Red Funnel ferries from Southampton to East Cowes (then a 5 minute drive to the apartment). Nearest airport and railway station are in Southampton, then ferry as above.
