We absolutely loved this place. It was larger than we needed, but so glad we chose it. It was very clean and well looked after, well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. We loved all the books! The rooms were all lovely and the garden is beautiful. The views across the Solent were great and we saw a few lovely sunsets. The location Read moreis good and Gurnard is a very nice area. It was also nice that the owners checked in with us to make sure all was well. Would definitely recommend. Hide

A superb property in every respect. The decor and furniture are entirely in keeping with the open design of the house. The well established garden provides a cool relaxing space for barbecue and a sundowner .

It was a short walk to the seafront for walks aloRead moreng the promenade and to Cowes.
