Welcome to our beautiful apartment, which has been recently renovated. It boasts an excellent location at the top of the High Street, opposite the entrance into the marina, in close proximity to the shops, restaurants and bars. Its location makes it ideal for crews and family holidays in West Cowes, being easily accessible on foot from the high speed ferry. Spacious, with stunning views across the Solent from the main living area, it can easily sleep six making it equally suitable for a weeks holiday, weekend getaway, or cosy Christmas and New Year break retreat. It has two bedrooms and modern bathroom. All linen, towels and a maid service (on leaving) are included to make your stay as easy as possible. The flat has wireless broadband and a fully equipped newly fitted kitchen. The living area has an LCD 40 inch smart TV with DVD and YouView box. A telescope is also available to view the passing boats from the lounge window. With gas central heating for the cooler months, you're assured of total home-from-home comfort.
We purchased the apartment as our Island retreat. Unfortunately, we are unable to spend as much time on the Island as we would like and have therefore decided that we should rent the apartment when we're not using it. The apartment is furnished and equipped as our home and not as a holiday let, which we're sure you will agree when you stay in our beautiful home.

We purchased the property as our Island getaway; the views of the marina and The Solent are beautiful - there is always something to watch and yet it's a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Being on the edge of the town centre makes it an ideal base to explore the town and its facilities and the rest of the island with no where more than a 30 minute drive by car.
The property is ideally located right on the edge of Cowes town centre, shops, restaurants, bars and the quaint high street are on the door step as well as Cowes marina. The light and airy spacious apartment is a perfect getaway and you feel amongst island life as soon as you arrive. There is no need to drive anywhere and walking in the sea air and watching the boats go by is so relaxing.
My family stayed in this apartment while visiting Cowes and the apartment turned out to be perfect. Very well equipped in a fantastic location. The owners were very helpful during the booking process and throughout our stay. Highly recommended.
We stayed here for a week over the IoW Festival period. Close to the Redjet, stylishly decorated and brand new high spec kitchen. Was great and would thoroughly recommend!
A very nice spacious property with good views out over the solent. Every conceivable utensil you could possibly need in the kitchen was available. The master bedroom is spacious though lacked a wardrobe, however there is hanging cupboard in the hallway. The 2nd bedroom has 2 full size bunks which our 2 young kids enjoyed but it does share the room with the laundry and boiler, but this wasn't a problem. I would recommend this property as it is well furnished, maintained and in a great location.
Very good Cutomer Service. Perfect location in Cowes, close to all amenenities, very clean, very tidy and very comfortable - would definitely recommend and look to stay again.
Very helpful owner. We had lovely stay in the flat. Six adults in total so we used the sofa bed in the lounge. We were all very comfortable, it was very clean and had everything we needed. Great location. Thank you x
This apartment was clean, spacious and beautifully presented. The location was fantastic. All amenities within a short walk. Views could not be better. From the side windows you can people watch and see the hustle and bustle of activity in the Main Street. The front window was absolutely ideal for watching the shipping and yachting to and from Southampton waters. Seeing the cruise ships and cargo ships at such a close proximity - we were almost reluctant to leave the apartment and explore the island. We definitely want to return.
