“Best view ever”
Reviewed February 9, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a week here during winter. The house is very well appointed, a few minutes walk to the centre of Cowes, decoration is very stylish, comfy sofas and divine beds, really well equipped kitchen, super clean, fresh flowers in every room... The heating was on as we arrived, the lights too, complimentary bottle of wine on the table ! The owner is flexible and reacts really quickly to mails. I still didn't mention the best feature of the house however : the magnificent view ! I literally spent hours with a cup of coffee, in the rocking chair, just sitting and admiring (and believe me, I'm not the type to sit still that long). We loved it !

“Amazing place”

people found this review helpful

As described in the other reviews the bungalow is very spacious, extremely comfortable and has the most amazing views to the front and an outstanding garden to the rear.
The Red squirrels were seen every day, we even took a video of them collecting nuts from their feeding station and burying them all over the garden!
A short walk into Cowes made this an ideal location if you didn't want to use the car, it has more of a village feel with very friendly people.
Overall a very enjoyable holiday (my first to the Island) and would highly recommend both the property and location.
I would like to say thank you to Bob for his prompt replies via email when we first enquired about the property and for the bottle of wine upon our arrival!

“Relax, unwind & enjoy spectacular views of the Solent”
Reviewed December 10, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

The bungalow is situated in an elevated position with spectacular views of the Solent. The gardens are very well kept, although we didn't use the rear garden as it was December! Everything you need to enjoy your stay is present, a well appointed kitchen that is very spacious. The bedrooms and showers are kept spotlessly clean. This is an ideal location if you just want to relax & unwind, an easy 7 minute stroll into Cowes, perfect for a long weekend stay or longer for a holiday. The rest of the island is very accessible to take in long walks into the island or coast. The bungalow has central heating to make it feel very cosy. There is a pub only a 15 minute walk away along the seafront, The Wood Vale, it serves tasty pub food and a number of Real Ales, occasionally 'live' music takes place. This bungalow will cater for all your needs and sleeps seven persons. The Red Funnel ferry service from Southampton is a short stroll from the bungalow and Wight Link ferries a 20 minute drive.

“Faboulous, relaxing accommodation with spectacular views.”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our trip was a girlie weekend away with three special friends and the accommodation was perfect. Log fire in the lounge, breakfast table with spectacular views of the Solent. 3 showers so no fighting. All mod cons in the kitchen.

The only downside, for a girlie like me, is the steep drive to negotiate. Once at the top your vehicle is totally secure, with enough room to turn around and go back down forwards. Fabulous gardens. Just a short walk in to Cowes.

So sad to leave behind at the end of our break.

“Home from home”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This bungalow was an ideal location to go and about from with easy access to local shops and amenities.

The property is very comfortable with everything you could need to feel as if you are 'home from home'. The views from the windows are stunning and exactly as described on the site.

Highly recommended.
