Our house is five minutes walk from Red Jet (fast ferry) in Cowes. It is a town house in a quiet residential street. We have 3 letting rooms, two bathrooms there is a shared lounge room with TV and a guest kitchen. We have Wi Fi.
This 1st floor room has a super king size bed that can separate into singles. This is the biggest bedroom of the three and has two built in wardrobes and catches the afternoon sun.
There is a shower and toilet up one flight of stairs and a bathroom downstairs if you fancy a bath.
There is a clean and bright guest kitchen, it may be shared but rarely in use as we have a small establishment and usually only have one or two guests at a time .
Interaction with Guests
This is our home so we are always on hand if needed.
. You will have your own key and come and go as you please, if we are not around when you check out just leave the key by the door.
We leave guests to their own devices mostly although we like to make sure everyone has everything they need, sometimes when appropriate we will walk down to one of the local bars with our guests for a drink .
We try to be available to give a lift to and from the ferry if they have heavy bags or it is raining.
There are supermarkets, Cafes and restaurants, pubs, shops, marina and yacht clubs within easy walking distance .
It's a safe friendly and sociable neighbourhood with good walks along the seafront and a small town which has plenty of watering holes and a lot of people come for the sailing - and the outdoor beauty of the island is a great attraction
The fast ferry service (Red Jet) between Cowes and Southampton takes just 20mins.
The car ferry takes an hour and arrives at East Cowes.
Buses go from the Red Jet terminal very frequently.
The Isle of Wight towns are well connected by Southern Vectis the bus company on the island. Taxis also available at terminal.
We have no rules as such but ask guests to smoke outside and be respectful of neighbours and our home. Mostly we insist you enjoy your stay and let us know if we can help or improve anything ;-)
Thanks for your welcome, even late in the evening !
The place is nice in a quiet street and It is close to High Street and the Red Jet.
I hope to see you soon, for my next visit.
Had a great time with Hatty and Geoff. Their place is in a very convenient location to town, 5 min walk, without being too close so as to be loud. Geoff was very accommodating, even offering me a bicycle if I desired to borrow it.
Great stay. Nice house. The room was as advertised and Hatty and Geoff were really helpful. Thank You.
We had an amazing time in Isle of Wight! Hatty and Geoff were very helpful and kind! The house was really clean and the room was very good and comfortable. The house was in a good location just a few minutes walking from the shops and pubs!
We would definitely recommend them!
Arrived at the Isle of wight earlier than expected and rang to ask if we could check in ok and our hosts Hatty & Geoff) were only to happy to oblige. The room was just as described and was made to feel instantly comfortable by Hatty . The house was perfect for us to access Cowes town Centre (2mins walk ) and Northwood House /park ( 1 min ) . Facilities available were spot on although we didn't need to make use of the kitchen it was to good know we could , had a most welcome shower after my Walk challenge around the island which finished at Northwood Park . Comfy bed and comfy stay what more do you want? see you next time guys!!
Hatty and Geoff are welcoming and easy going people and were great at communicating.
The room was clean and comfortable and the use of the kitchen is great for preparing your own meals if needed.
We came by public transport and it's very easy to get to. A few minutes walk from the ferry and a bus stop at the end of the street for getting to the rest of the island.
All in all a lovely place and we'd happily stay again.
Hatty and Geoff really are lovely hosts-gave advice, were quite talkative, made sure their guests felt comfortable! The house and the rooms were nice and cosy, we were free to use the kitchen, bikes and even the living room and the TV!

We are long-standing islanders, a well connected local couple with extensive sailing experience; an artist and a carpenter-boat builder. We like the social life in Cowes and out door activities. The island has a very lively music scene and we enjoy many varied events around the year.
We have years of experience with providing accommodation in Cowes and abroad although only at this address since 2013
We try to provide a small personal service with the aim of meeting new and interesting people using b & b to supplement our income.
