“Lovely quirky place to stay”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here with our teenage daughter and enjoyed staying in somewhere 'different'. The living space and kitchen are mainly at street level with large terraces which catch the morning sun, there is a lounge also downstairs. The internal stairs are very steep. My husband found taking bags to our room via the terrace was easier but this wasn't an issue. There was everything we needed for the cooking of meals we had in (only a few), beds were comfortable and shower in bathroom good and roomy. Parking we were lucky most evenings to get right outside but sea front parking only a very short walk away. We all loved our stay and would stay here again.

“Lovely house in a great location”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

The house is perfectly decorated in a lovely quiet location in Gurnard. It has all that you need for a lovely break away.

The outside decking is great in the morning sunshine to eat a relaxed breakfast and a couple of seats outside of the front if you want to catch the late afternoon sun. Yes the stairs are very steep but if your able bodied and careful they are fine and as others have said you can always use the outside steps which are easier to navigate.

The cafe just a 1 min walk away on the sea front is lovely for a hearty breakfast or cupcake and the walk to Cowes takes a good 30-40 mins but is by the sea front all the way so a pleasure. It is very dark if returning late on so take a torch if walking.

Would not hesitate to return especially when relaxation is needed!

“Beach cabin in a quiet location.”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed with our 11 And 9 year old. The stairs are steep but there is also outside access and we had no problems. Whilst small the top cabin was lovely and a well planned. Much more space downstairs. The skylight to the bunks does throw in early morning light if your children are light sleepers.

This property suited us very well and whilst we were out and about during the day we were very happy to hang around the cabin in the late afternoon sunshine or wander on the beach or use the children's playground on the green. Walking into cowes for dinner was also very easy.
If a beach cabin is your thing you couldn't do better.

“Perfect for getaways...”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in this smart little beach house for a long weekend. Lucky with the weather we made the most of the outside space to eat and relax. Sitting on the deck you can see the sea and the whole place has a New England feel. It is a spacious holiday let for two with everything you need to self cater but we were lazy and ate out. Breakfast at The Waters Edge and dinner at The Little Gloster (specialises in fish) in Little Gurnard next door. We had a car but there are so many places to walk to from Gurnard that we didn't use it. Cowes is a pleasant walk away and the excercise made the lunch at Coast more justified. Thinking about a date for our next escape!
NB. The stairs are steep, like a boat, so I can understand why the owners say no young children etc.
