We booked Yachtsman's Tower to have a peaceful holiday with a bit of luxury thrown in and this definitely ticked all of those boxes. It was so quiet and peaceful and we all loved watching the wildlife in the mornings and evenings. Superb views and the house itself had everything that we could have wanted. Lots of space and comfort and very well equipped. We loved it so much we have booked again. I would definitely recommend staying here.
We were a group celebrating my 40th with a trip to the festival. Perfect location, beautiful house. We loved seeing the family of swans and cygnets every day. And easily within walking distance of all things festival.
One of our very best holiday homes on the Isle of wight. This is a property to die for.
So relaxing and quiet in the most tranquil unique 360 degree stunning views.
Fabulous house and makes you feel at home
Couldn't rave about this place because if it could it be a 10 star. We love it. Home owners excellent and always nice clean and fresh. Everyone has to stay here as it can never be beaten xxx
We stayed for a week in early summer. Family of 4 , including two late teens.
We walked in and our reaction was WOW......score.
The property is situated on a modern marina set approx 3 miles inland from the mouth at Cowes., an easy 10 mins drive from the East Cowes ferry terminal. Plenty of parking, cars being restricted access apart for drop off. Makes the place very quiet. The property is fully situated over the marina water , built on stilts and roadway.
Inside the property is spread over 4 floors with a kitchen diner lounge with wrap around balconies on the ground floor, a tele lounge with a fab 4 seat motorised leather settee and a huge to with Netflix etc on the 1st floor. This was a big hit with our son & daughter. 4 bedrooms on the top three floors gave a pale space , 4 bathrooms finished to a very high spec were spread over the 4 floors. We particularly loved the top,floor bedroom and its bathroom. This had a large walk in shower wet room. The views from this 4th floor,bedroom were wide and we could see as far as Cowes.
The place is incredibly quiet, save the noise from the local bird life...a pair of swans visit many times each day under the balconies for titbits, Malards and Black headed gulls .
This place can easily cope with 2 families of 4 each sharing.
The marina has a good place to eat on site , names the Breeze.worth a visit. We ate there twice and enjoyed both visits. I swooned at many of the fab boats moored in the marina.
Take bikes, there is a good flat route down to Newport then up the PD railway track to Cowes , across the ferry and down from East Cowes . Easily doable in 75 mins or so, but you will enjoy it better if you break the journey for refreshments in the quay front in Cowes.
