“Could not fault.”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed at 42a for a long weekend with friends. The location meant that everything was within arms reach however the accommodation still felt secluded. Funnily enough the highlight of our trip to Cowes was the spontaneous evening in playing cards, as an outdoorsy type this speaks volumes! I am extremely pleased to have stumbled upon this gem and definitely intend to stay again. Thank you!

“A very relaxing few days”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A lovely bright and airy apartment in the heart of Cowes. It was scrupulously clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay plus many extras in the kitchen that we didn't expect. After a day spent exploring the island it was a pleasure to come back and unwind! Thank you!

“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment provides everything you could need. The light and airy space, along with the modern stylish decor, luxury touches and tech considerations, makes it hard to actually leave the apartment. I highly recommend this rental.

“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 :)
