About Anna Finey

We bought this apartment as a holiday home/weekend getaway after enjoying some short stays in Cowes. We live in Surrey with our 2 children and Black Labrador.

Year Purchased; 2009, remodelled 2010

We love coming to the flat but cannot get over as often as we would like, so are opening up the flat so others may enjoy it and all that Cowes and the Isle of Wight has to offer. We use the flat for weekend getaways, summer holidays, and a base for festivals. As we use the apartment, the facilities in the apartment are extensive providing home from home experience

Anna Finey purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Anna Finey chose Cowes

We bought in Cowes as there is always something going on, and there are excellent transport links to the Mainland, for a quick weekend away, use the Red Jet from Southampton to Cowes, and with the amenities in Cowes there is no need to go elsewhere. or alternatively use the Red funnel or Wightlink car ferries offering very regular sailings.

We chose this apartment due to the views and space available, we had it extensively remodeled in 2010, including having soundproofing put in between us and the flat downstairs, moving the kitchen to the middle of the flat so we can enjoy the views and converting the loft space to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

The facilities are extensive, and offers great space, whether for a couple or small group of people or a larger family.

What makes this apartment unique

Convenience to Cowes centre,

Walking - Seaside walks, country walks

Sailing Facilities - UKSA sailing courses

Enjoying the ambiance of the Sailing events

Unique view of the cruise ships leaving Southampton and the many tanker/ container ships going in and out of Southampton

Warm and comfortable. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

We rented for 6 days in December 2017 - just 2 of us. The weather was rather wild and changeable with some hard frosts and strong winds. The flat was plenty warm enough and comfortable. Shopping and eating out were both very easy. Access to other parts of the island was straightforward on the local busses (no car). Step access up to the front door was tricky during the frosty weather. Otherwise no issues.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable with everything you need. We loved watching the boats coming and going from the beautiful view from the living room. Appartment is in a great location with everything on the door stop. Anna was extremely helpful from the moment I put in an enquiry and a lovely welcome bottle of wine waiting for us!. Will definitely return!.

A lovely long weekend.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable apartment which is particularly well equipped, and with many "extras" not normally found in such rentals. Spotlessly clean and well decorated this was a home from home for our time on the island. My wife particularly enjoyed being able to watch the larger vessels manoeuvring their way through the Solent from the living room window. All in all the addition of good weather made this stay particularly pleasant and I d definitely recommend this property to others.

clean, comfortable & spacious flat in the centre of Cowes

  • 4 of 5

3 of us came to participate in Cowes Classics Week.

The flat sleeps 5 comfortably, the water is hot in both the showers, the living room is large & comfortable and with sea views as shown.

The kitchen is small but well equipped and stocked with coffee, tea & a few basics.

The flat is in the centre of Cowes activity but overlooks a quiet street.

Recommended. We'll come again.
