Seawinds is a recently constructed chalet style property with a stunning open plan living, dining and kitchen area. It is located in a rural coastal area in the picturesque village of Gurnard.
Less than 80 metres from the sea and only minutes from the world famous sailing town of Cowes we are ideally situated to explore everything the Island has to offer.
Gurnard is also frequently voted as having some of the best sunsets in the world and you’ll have a front row view from this appointed property.
I live down the road from our rental properties with my partner Michele and our four cats.
I was born in Gurnard and spent my childhood here.
Education and employment took me to London but sailing and the countryside brought me back.
We bought a weekend home in Gurnard Marsh so that I could sail my catamaran. However my weekends became longer and our Gurnard home became our main residence.
Within a few years of living here we purchased two more chalets and had them rebuilt as high quality self-catering holiday properties.
Carl Blenkinsop purchased this chalet in 2005
I love the Island and think that the Gurnard Marsh area is an undiscovered gem. This opinion is I believe confirmed by the large number of repeat bookers we have.

The nearest beach is 50 meters away. It is stony but offers great views of the boats using the Solent. 600 meters away is a more comfortable beach with more seaside facilities. No beach on the island is more than a 30 minute drive away.
Within 50 meters of Seawinds is a small river which has become a favourite with crabbing fans.
Seawinds is approximately 20 minutes drive from all of the Islands ferry ports. We are a 40 minute walk to the foot passenger ferry in Cowes. Most of our guests have arrived by car but some have walked and used the islands public transport system.
