Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful weekend away This house was so well appointed, was spotless, had a lovely feel and was walking distance to the main street. Communication was excellent and it really was the perfect getaway. The four legged friends were totally secure in the yard and we will be back for sure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great place! We had such a great time at this house and cannot recommend it highly enough! It was spotlessly clean, large enough for all of the 2 legged and 4 legged members of the family and well appointed with everything you need for a family holiday. The location was perfect and within walking distance of the town and beach. The owners are very easy to communicate with and generously let us have a late check out so we didn't have to rush off in the morning. We will be booking this again and if we could give it 6 stars we would!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great property to take your pets. We stayed here for 2 nights with our fur babies,the house was in a good location and is a good size with a great backyard ,the house looked in better condition on the outside ,inside was only partially updated and was unfinished and felt dirty ,there was a curtain missing in dining room which wasn't ideal on a winters night, the fridge was quite dirty inside we enjoyed the wood heater and electric blankets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weekend getaway. Spent the weekend at the house, very clean and tidy. Big yard for children to play in. Woodfire was excellent. Very quiet location but close enought to walk to the shops and a magnificent mexican restaurant near by. Great weekend and would definitely stay again. Great communication show by owners who cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacious and comfortable Minbalup has a great atmosphere, it's really comfortable and has all you need inside and out for an enjoyable stay. The kitchen is well equipped to cater for a large group and the yard is big enough for a game or two of cricket. Located in a quiet street the house is also walking distance to the Cowes cafes and pier. The cheery decor adds to the charm and the happy beach feel. We look forward to staying again.
