We stayed over Easter weekend - a busy weekend yet this place was nice and quiet. The grounds were immaculate and the units were beautifully clean, which is always on my 'must have' list. I like that every unit has a car port. Also the BBQ areas, laundry, tennis court, swimming pool and play area were all in top condition,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in winter with our family (2 adults and 2 kids). The apartments are very new and spacious. The grounds, tennis court, pool and playground look excellent. Reception was very friendly and helpful. Apartments are in a residential area, about 5 minutes drive out of Cowes, so they're very quiet. On the negative side, the apartments... More

Title says it all. Let me elaborate - It is a family-owned business, and at the time of the visit, the grandparents were down helping look after the business. They were attentive, helpful and were very friendly and welcoming. Our stay was short, and as a result, were we unable to take full advantage of all the facilities, which appeared... More

Great stay, the lady who checked us in was geniuinely friendly and welcoming. The room were very clean and well heated ( important on the island in winter) . Is very new so everything is smick, and it feels a little like a display village. I'll definitely come back .
