Our home is the perfect place to relax after a busy day out and about, it's lovely and private, in a quiet court, behind a tall front fence with lovely gardens and a sunny verandah. Perfect to sit back quietly, sip on something cool and enjoy a break away.
This space is perfect for a single, couple or two friends. We know the Island well and can recommend the best places to eat and to visit.
Our home is located centrally to everything our beautiful Island has to offer. We are within a couple of minutes by car to the main centre of Cowes and beach (5km). Or if you prefer, walk or cycle along the bike track to Cowes, gorgeous beaches, or further on to San Remo.
We are ideally situated for attending events at the Grand Prix Track, being a few mins drive, a short bike ride or a moderate sized walk away.

Most importantly, relax and have fun!
We do our very best to provide you with a gorgeous space which is comfortable and affordable, so we ask you to do your best to keep it that way for other guests.
Some bits are important to us and we would ask you to observe these while in our home:
No smoking, use of candles or portable cookers. Smokers may only smoke outside of our front gate.
Kitchenette is for the preparation of breakfast and light meals only. No cooking other than use of the toaster and microwave. We can recommend the best cafe/restaurants on the Island if you ask and we have supplied eating out info in the apartment.
Please only use the heating when necessary, and be sure to turn the heater off when out and about, and snuggled up in bed.
If you move the heater from its storage position by the bathroom, please return it at the end of your stay and please do not put anything on top of it such as towels or clothes.
Please hang wet towels on the rail provided.
We like to recycle and conserve energy, so please keep those recyclable items separate from the rubbish, and please turn of all lights and appliances if not in use.
We can keep costs down thanks to guests leaving out apartment tidy, including doing the dishes before you leave.
There is plenty of car parking space on the grassed area outside our gate, motor bikes can be left inside the gate by arrangement. motorbikes are to be turned off/started up outside the gates only.
Wet gear/surf boards etc not to be bought inside apartment, there is plenty of room in the secure undercover veranda.
We will normally contact you within a few days before you arrive to confirm your check-in time, if you are traveling and not contactable please contact us before you leave. We like to know what time to expect guests so we are sure to be home to welcome you.
Please remember that we may have other guests coming on the day you leave, so please observe the 11am check-out. If you ask, and we don't have other guests, we are really flexible with this time, but please ask first.
Thanks heaps and have a wonderful time!!
