About this listing
This is a brick build 2 bedroomed semi detached bungalow in a wooded holiday park near the sea and Cowes, Isle of Wight. It is light and tidy with furniture and fittings for up to 4 people. There is an open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area, with TV/DVD player and free wifi throughout the holiday home. There are 2 separate bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with adult sized bunk beds) Each bedroom has room for a baby's cot or child 's floor mattress. There is one bathroom with shower over the bath. Beds are made up for you and towels (except beach towels) are provided. Optional extras to buy at the Holiday park include the use of indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness suite, tennis courts, bike hire and indoor children's play/adventure area. There is a cafe on site. The sea, country walks, a pub, shop, newsagent and good restaurant are all within 10 - 15 minutes walk. These are in and around the village of Gurnard. Cowes town is a couple of miles away and has a range of useful and interesting shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries, museums, a fast ferry to the mainland, and boats galore! The island has many attractions for children, miles of walks and cycle tracks and quiet country roads to quaint villages and interesting towns.There is a bus service but you'd be more flexible with a car for which there is parking by the chalet. I live nearby and can be available to help with any queries as needed. Sorry - smoking and pets are not allowed in the chalet. The chalet is suitable for singles and couples as it is for families. For those of you from outside the UK, please be aware that the chalet is on the Isle of Wight which is off the south coast of England and has frequent car and foot passenger ferries from Southampton. Portsmouth and Lymington in the New Forest.
Common sense - to treat the property and contents with the reasonable care expected in a private property.
We loved this perfect little cottage in Cowes. The cottage is very well equipped, lovely and clean and offers enough space for a family of four.
Janet made us very welcome and was extremely helpful when we forgot some things.
The kids also loved the swimming pool in the holiday park which they used every day, even if just for half an hour.
Great Holiday, thank you Janet.
A lovely self-contained holiday home with everything we needed for a lovely few days.
Janet met us to show us around and was very welcoming. She had bought us a few essentials to keep us going until we could shop, which was very thoughtful! Plus there were a few items in the cupboard.
The beds were comfy with soft bedding and the place was very clean. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking equipment which allowed us to save money by eating in a few nights during the stay - always helpful!
Our 3 year old was well looked after with a big box of toys she was delighted about, plus a few DVDs.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend - we would stay here if we visit again.
her house is lovely and located in a peaceful residence. clean and equipped with everything you need! Perfect for relax and spend quiet days .
janet is the perfect host ! helpful, kind , honest ! I recommend to everyone !
We had a fantastic stay on the Isle of Wight - first of all Janet's "toy house" as she said is a very warm, cozy, clean and with a lot of heart&care decorated place that made it very easy for us and our two kids (4 and 1) to settle in. It is extremely well equipped - you will find everything from notepad, pens, sewing kit, hair dryer, an old record player and vinyls, all kinds of flyers and maps for walks and cycling on the Isle of Wight, toys... Janet arranged a baby travel cot and a high chair for us (thank you so much again!) and -to our surprise- came by to welcome us with two cold beers (mind reader ;-), thank you!). She was very helpful and friendly in the whole process and replied very quick to any question we texted. The park was very calm, in a very nice location Northwest of the Isle of Wight and it was easy for us to go and explore different beaches and sights during our sunspoiled days on that beautiful place on earth... Definetely recommended...*****
We spent a couple of nights in the Isle of Wight & stayed in Janet's chalet in West Cowes. Before arrival Janet was very helpful in giving directions from our ferry to her place, offering to meet us & even offering us a lift if we needed it. We were sorted for transport already, but appreciated the help & good communication beforehand. The chalet is semi-detached, has a kitchen/diner/living area, bathroom, double bedroom & bedroom with bunks. It was clean & bright. There were clean towels provided on every bed & tea towels etc too. Fresh milk in the fridge, bread, coffee, teabags provided too. We ate our meals out & only had tea & toast at the chalet for breakfast, so we were covered in terms of catering :) Though if we had chosen to cook for ourselves the facilities were there. There was lots of information left for where to go, where to eat etc with Janet's own personal opinions shared for the very best things. Janet remained in communication during our stay & was happy to help out with whatever we needed. We've never done airbnb before, and we found this experience a very positive one. We found ourselves to be well situated on the island for getting out & about & seeing the place. We may be back in the future! Thanks Janet for a lovely break! :)
Lovely spacious chalet, I recommend having a look round the chalet before going to the supermarket as many more of the essentials are provided than we expected.
Booking was easy and Janet always answered queries quickly.
We plan to return for a week next time. I recommend Janet as a good airbnb host
We had a wonderful long weekend at Janet's chalet. It was extremely well equipped which was great since I ended up cooking most evenings ! We were all very comfortable and loved the retro record player and kids books and toys. We didn't use the on site pool but did use the soft play area on a rainy morning ! We really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back soon - thank you Janet !
