“Beautiful apartment in great location”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Modern yet cosy apartment in the centre of Cowes, perfect for exploring the town and the rest of the island. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed for our stay, was really clean throughout and very tastefully decorated - it was a real pleasure to spend time there. We would highly recommend it and we will definitely be returning for another relaxing and indulgent break.

“Couldn't of asked for a better break from the city”
Reviewed December 10, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

An absolutely brilliant stay in a clean, modern and very well looked after apartment located in an ideal part of Cowes with ready access to public transport on its doorstep (via boat or bus) yet not situated near any busy roads so is still quiet and peaceful, my favourite part of the apartment would be the main room as it had a very cosy feel to it with an awesome 32 inch tv and a wireless speaker which was very good also. All together it was the perfect getaway from the busy life of university for me and my girlfriend and would honestly recommend this to anyone looking to visit the Isle of Wight :)

Management Response
Nov 7, 2013
Dear guest,

Thank you kindly for reviewing 42a. We are responding to your review because we would like to formally apologise for the lack of eggcups during your stay. We thought that we had a thought of everything... DVD collection, wireless iPod dock, hand wash, shower gel, towels, kitchen towels, wine, water, jam, biscuits, tea, coffee, milk, candles, good quality linen, washing machine... but alas... we overlooked the eggcups! As they say, the devil is in the details!

Rest assured, we will be seeking to rectify this heinous error with great urgency.

We apologise whole heartedly once more, and we hope that this will not deter you from considering 42a for your future stays in Cowes.

Happy travelling,

Peter & Nathalie

“Clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped, the owners have taken trouble to think of everything to make this a home from home. We (two adults, two children, aged 9 and 2) spent one happy week here exploring the island, car-free. Very convenient location – just one minute from the Red Jet passenger ferry terminal, bus to Newport (20 mins) closeby and near to shops. Flat is on the first floor overlooking the high street - plenty to look at day and night. Some sounds of evening revelry from bars and restaurants but night-time noise level was fine. Lovely spacious open-plan sitting/dining/kitchen area. Helpful information and good care and communication from owners.

“Smart 'loft style living' in the centre of West Cowes, with all home comforts provided.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a lovely 5 day holiday in this smart, yet comfortable town centre flat. The location was great, right in the centre of the bustle of the High Street. We had great fun 'people watching' from on high and enjoyed stepping out to find pubs and restaurants literally on the doorstep.
