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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxed and comfortable Stayed a Minbalup for a family xmas get together. It was perfect because it felt like a family beach home. My son took his small dog and we ALL enjoyed the garden! You can walk to the shops, which is great. The beach is further away, but walkable. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Great place to stay for a family getaway!

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.
