“Stylish comfortable cottage in an ideal location”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a beautiful cottage, ideally situated for the beach and shops at Ryde. It is especailly convenient if you have no car as the bus station and train station are across the road. Laura, the owner, was very helpful at all stages of the booking. We had a very relaxing holiday and had everything we needed for our comfort in the cottage.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Laura the owner was so helpful when I made enquiries I had a feeling that this place was going to be great and we weren't disappointed. The cottage is beautifully presented, not only in that is well kept and sparkling clean but there are also lots of nice extras you don't tend to expect in a self catering holiday home. We stayed for a week over the festive season and the cottage had also been decorated for us which was such a lovely touch. The lounge and dining area is more spacious than you would imagine with a modern electric fire (with remote control) that made the room very cosy. The main bedroom was also a good size with an extremely comfortable large bed and view of the sea and plenty of wardrobe/draw space. As with every room the bathroom is also beautiful with corner bath and fab shower over. The kitchen is compact but equipped with everything you need. I don't think you could pick a better spot to stay in Ryde as minutes from the beautiful beach at Appley as well as a short walk to the shops and restaurants as well as the transport network to access the rest of the island. Ryde also has great takeaways if you don't want to go out! We stayed as a couple but felt the cottage would also suit family with the twin second bedroom and nice touch of books and games left for you to use. The cottage doesn't have dedicated parking but there is metered parking outside and a public car park not far so don't let this put you off bringing the car - saying that we left ours at home and didn't have any regrets as the transport to and on the island is really good, we got a 7day bus pass and got around easily (even on bank holidays the service is really good). All in all a fabulous stay and we definitely recommend a stay here anytime of the year :-)

“Perfect for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

Having visited the Isle of Wight many times before we wanted a place to stay for a long weekend away with the family. It was like home from home. Nicely decorated and has everything we could need! Shops very close by as well as restaurants and a few bars. Perfect location to catch the Hovercraft from the mainland. Also great transport links all round the island within walking distance. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Will definitely be staying again.

“Six Star home from home a pebbles throw away from the beach.”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Absolutely beautiful cottage which from the moment you walk in puts a smile on your face. Everything you need and much more is there for you and family / even a boxful of board games :)). We will be back many times in the future as we have now found our ideal "home from home" in an amazing location - close to all shops, entertainment, ferry terminal and the beach . It's very rare to find such a gem as this .

“Well needed break in a lovely cottage located on a beautiful beach.”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were lucky to be some of the first visitors to this lovely cottage. The new owners have kept the charm of this cottage whilst furnishing with high quality furniture. As we were on a short break we decided to leave the car at Southsea and take the Hover over to the island, it couldn't have been easier, the cottage was just over the road from the hover port and the beautiful Ryde beach.
Using the local transport was so easy and gave us the opportunity to visit other areas of the island.
We were amazed at what the I.o.W. has to offer for all tastes and ages and we will definitely be returning to Coast Guard Cottage for a longer stay and possibly take the car so that we can take our time to explore this lovely island, the beaches, sights and gastronomic delights that it has to offer (may even take the kids next time).
