“Home from Home”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My wife and I stayed for a week with our two kids and my mother and there was plenty of room for us all without getting under each others feet. The house was well equipped with games and tv, wifi etc to keep the kids happy and the kitchen was also well equipped. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms made the stay relaxing. Within walking distance is West Cowes with some great restaurants but also good pub grub and ales and a couple of supermarkets and lovely shops.

We used the house as a base to see the island and we went almost everywhere from the Needles (good value day out!) to Blackgang Chine (for the kids) to shopping in Sandown (and the pier amusements!). On a rainy day we visited Planet Ice in Ryde for some ice skating (friendly staff) and the Garlic Farm was interesting.

Altogether a very enjoyable week and we hope to return, thank you.

“Highly recommendable!!”
Reviewed 14 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We (family of three and two "in-laws") spent nine wonderful days on the Isle of Wight. This superb accommodation contributed big time to the great holiday we had. The generous welcome pack was much appreciated, the whole place is so well kept and decorated nicely! Cosy lounge, good sized bedrooms, very well equipped kitchen, great garden and so on... It was probably the best accommodation we ever rented (and we had a few...). Thanks very much Tracy and André!

“Great weekend”
Reviewed 11 December 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Spotless house in a fabulous Cowes location. The kitchen was fully equipped, the beds were really comfy and we could easily walk into the centre of Cowes. Enjoyed the garden, and terrace area for drinks when the sun was out. Thanks for everything!
