Lovely relaxing townhouse, right overlooking the marina, in the heart of the quaint harbour town of Cowes, on the beautiful Isle of Wight - an easy hop over from Southampton.

Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, spacious sitting room and kitchen with huge window over marina. Flat screen freeview TV's, Wifi throughout, tasteful neutral decor, and fully equipped to a very high standard. A great selection of shops, restaurants, pubs and marina all within a minutes walk !

The property is conveniently situated right in the heart of Cowes, with a secluded entrance in a small gated courtyard off the High Street. An old seaman's residence, it was completely renovated to a high standard a few years ago and retains its character with some quaint sloping ceilings and floors. On 4 floors over a small card store at the front.

A smart front door opens into an entrance hall with multiple coat hooks and shoe rack, continuing up a characterful winding stairway (not suitable for disabled or infirm) to the first floor, comprising the bright airy kitchen. Fully equipped with oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washer/dryer, plenty of cupboard space, smart white china and fine glasses, and equipment to suit every eventuality, plus a drop leaf table which can accommodate 6 people, and fabulous views over the marina and harbour from the huge window.

We stayed here as it was an ideal stop-off point for our round the island walk. The flat was very conveniently located for the town center, was clean and tidy on arrival and was exactly as represented in the descriptions. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Our host Fiona was extremely helpful and swift in responding. Excellent location, very close to west cowes ferry and bus stop to Newport. Quiet and safe, except for Friday night. Everything was great!

Fiona's place was easy to find, only less than 5 mins walk to the ferry terminal and 3mins to the bus stop to Newport, which was incredibly convenient for us to travel through the island. The house was bright and clean and well-equipped with everything we needed, especially the kitchen! And as front door works with a code so no keys were needed to enter the house. Fiona was incredibly helpful in answering all of my questions and kind enough to extend the check-out time. We had a wonderful stay there and would love to go back if had the chance!

Great central location (but consequently noisy). Well kitted out, clean with very clear instructions on using everything. It does have a very narrow stairs which need care. Kitchen is on the small size but perfectly manageable. Fiona was excellent at answering questions and providing very clear instructions on arriving, departing and parking. Overall a very nice weekend based in central Cowes.

The house has a pretty good location. Only 5 mins walk to Red Jet terminal. It's very comfortable and well equipped. My friends and I had a really good time on New Eve. Thank you Fiona:)

Hi Fiona, thank you for a wonderful stay in your cosy beautiful place! It was well equipped for absolutely everything we needed, in the perfect location next to the high street, bus stop and ferry terminal and was spacious enough to accommodate six adults with ease. The only slight downside was that we could hear people chatting outside late at night, but that's really not an issue. For anyone not bringing the car to IOW we would encourage to take the faster passenger ferry as that arrives just around the corner from the property. Coming in and out of the property was very simple thanks to the code system. The directions provided were spot on. Fiona, you've been great at answering any questions before and during our visit, thanks again for a great stay! We had a lovely time!

Hi - we are Fiona and Will, and we've been living on the beautiful Island for 15 years now and we just love it ! We started providing Holiday Accommodation 5 years ago with our lovely little townhouse in Cowes, which has been a huge success with all our guests - hopefully due to our attention to detail and caring attitude. A couple of years ago we decided to expand our business by building a fabulous Tree House on the edge of our land. It has proved very popular indeed - so much so that we are thinking about to building another one !
We look forward to giving you a great holiday !
