Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome and relaxing! What a great property! Quiet street, spacious property, big backyard for cricket games, plus a dart board on the deck. Massive bbq and all the kitchen amenities! We used only the wood fire as a heat source and it was PERFECT, and we had kids ranged between 4 months and 8 years! We have stayed in many places in PI and this place fits the bill. It's walking distance to Cowes too! Such a relaxing and well needed break and staying here made it all the better. Thank you!!! We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place for a holiday. We were 2 families and there was plenty of room for everyone to chill out, have fun and really make the most of our holiday. A short walk to the main shopping strip (even with 4 kids in tow!). A beautifully landscaped large backyard for the kids to play and for the adults to relax. A well organised and thought out home, with beautiful decor and spacious bedrooms. The only downer was that we really couldn't get any heat from the split system and had to rely on the fireplace for heat on the few chilly nights and mornings we experience, which was beautiful and such a wonderful touch to a beach home stay, but not really practical with children. I would recommend this place for a family stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab beach house! We stayed at this great beach house over the summer and loved everything about the place. It has a huge deck with a bbq and space to chill out, a large yard and inside lounge / entertaining area. The decor is funky and it's only a short walk to the main street with cafes, shops, supermarkets and the water. Amazing place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Property! We had a great time at this property and would stay again, next time I will bring my dogs as it is a great set up for pets. Very good place to stay for a relaxing weekend with your friends. The big backyard was also a bonus!! Overall we had an awesome time and for good value.
