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

Lovely property, noisy foghorns
Property was lovely had everything we needed & playstation, games & music were great. Second night there foghorns went off continually, never realised it would be so loud & at 5.15 am it was like an alarm call. The weather was heavy fog & mist every day so no views to see. Can’t do anything about that I know but it was annoying.Found some lovely places to eat though.
Perfect. Couldn't have asked for better.
Apartment was excellent. Warm and homely in a perfect location. Well equipped and very clean. Very recommended.
Fantastic flat, comfortable, convenient & great views
This flat has everything you need for a relaxing holiday on the Isle of Wight. It is well thought out, has everything you need and is perfect for seeing the sights on the Island. The decor is modern and well kept with everything you need during your stay. The kitchen is well equipped and the owners have thought of lots of detail to help this flat become a home away from home. It’s location in the centre of Cowes means stunning views and also easy access into town, but also to the Chain Link ferry over to East Cowes. The beds are comfortable and a roof patio mean you can make the most of the sunshine. The island itself has lots to offer for all ages.
Home from home
Our apartment in Cowes more than met expectations. It had everything that you would ever need, and whilst very central, it was very quiet. The apartment has been finished to a high specification and we had a really enjoyable week. Anna, the owner, was incredibly responsive and made the whole booking process very easy. Thank you!
Warm and comfortable. Good location.
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.
Home from home! lovely clean appartment in an excellent location.
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!.
