“Really cute, nautical-themed cottage with a fabulous view!”
Reviewed 1 June 2012 for a stay in December 2010

We've stayed at Cowes View at least three times--a couple times during the summer and once when there was snow all the way down to the edge of the Solent! Returning to this pleasant little cottage always feels like returning to our own cozy holiday home. The cottage is well equipped, clean, and well kept. The very pleasant owner and delightful family live nearby, and one or more will pop in very promptly if anything needs attention. There are pubs, shops, restaurants, and a library all within walking distance. Walks along the front in the evening breeze were especially enjoyable. Within easy driving distance are all of the Portsmouth/Southampton/Solent attractions.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed 1 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

I could have been in the Mediterranean, the hot spell of weahter made our stay at Cowes view Coastguard magical.
The owner has done coastguard cottage to top Spec and thought of everything to make your stay extremely comfortable.
It was our 2nd time and we are about to secure our 3rd visit.
I highly recommened this cottage and if you manage to get a week when the sun is shinning that is an added bonus.

“Superb place and amazing views, wanted to keep it a secret”
Reviewed 30 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

All I can say even though we were tempted by the photographs they really do not show how magical this place is. On arrival I wanted to cry as could not quite believe the view. It's a changing picture all the time and whether sunny or raining there is always something to watch. I can honestly say this has been one of thre most relaxing holidays and there is a lot to see nearby by foot or car. The cottage is so quirky and so homely and had everything we needed to relax and come home saying it is one of the best places in the world we have stayed. Perfect for couples (especially honeymoons!). I could have easily spent week just in cottage but so many lovely places nearby great to get out to.
