About this listing
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 Wi Fi throughout . We do not provide breakfast but have a guest kitchen available for use at any time and guests are welcome to prepare all meals here. There is tea and coffee supplied.
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

I am a long-standing Cowes resident, a well connected local with extensive sailing experience; an artist and a carpenter-boat builder. I like the social life in Cowes and out door activities. The island has a very lively music scene and I enjoy many varied events around the year.
I have 30 years of experience with providing accommodation in Cowes and abroad although only at this address since 2013
I provide a small, self catering establishment where you can feel safe and comfortable, my aim is to meet new and interesting people using AIRBNB to supplement my income.
