Wonderful view of the Solent
Three generations of our family loved the location and spacious accommodation of this property which is almost on the seafront. A swim in the sea, fascination with liners and commercial shipping as well as our love of sailing boats, an easy walk to Cowes High Street made this an ideal property for us.
Beautiful place but missing the basics
This was a beautiful home with wonders views. It was January when we stayed and very frigid. As a VRBO myself, I strive to make my guests comfortable. This place was lacking in some basic necessities, specifically:
-trash cans, the only one in the entire house was in the kitchen and there are 3 floors.
- no non to collect recycling inside the house or extra bags. I guess you’re just supposed to pile it up and carry it out.
- no paper towels in kitchen. There was a holder but no towels.
- no hand/face towels in bathrooms
-no washcloths for washing bodies
-local maps, attractions and transportation information would have been greatly appreciated.
Maybe I’m spoiled by American clothes dryers but this one took 2.5 hours for 4 pairs of jeans.
The empty hot tub on the porch taunted is in the cold weather. Would have been superb to soak in the warmth and take the chill out of our bones.
I'm sorry you found some aspects of the house disappointing. Firstly please note the house was not advertised as having a hot for your stay, nor was it shown in photographs. It arrived shortly before your stay and I've not yet fully tested it. It will be available from next month.
In the living room there is a large blue box full of tourist brochures and maps, I'm surprised you didn't find it as it is mentioned in the property instructions and I've checked it is present as I went through it the day before your stay. Similarly the recycling bin is under the counter in the utility room.
I note however the lack of bathroom bins and will add some more.
February 2018: Note hot tub fully commissioned and in use, new property instructions in place for guests and additional bins in bathrooms
great views, lovely house in nice quiet spot, perfect for 10 people
We very much enjoyed staying here, the location very close to the Solent is great.
It's a lovely house which is very well maintained. Having the living room and dining room on the first floor gives great views!
A nice plush and spacious house.
We had a very nice stay, everything we needed was within walking distance.
Excellent property with fabulous location.
The property was exactly as described in the online details. Perfect for the ten of us. Location was fabulous(specially for ship spotters)
Good sized house in a great location
The property is in a well maintained and very quiet gated development. The rooms were all of a good size with lovely views across the Solent. Very much enjoyed watching the cruise liners and numerous yachts as we came and went. There is also a lovely outside seating area, which would be lovely on a hot summers evening. Cowes has some very nice places to eat and is only a 10-15 minute walk along the seafront to the centre. Great base for us to have explored the IOW for the weekend.
Glad you enjoyed your holiday and I hope you'll stay again
Cowes is famous the world over for its yachting, particulary the annual week long regatta in August. Mornington Mews is superly located a short walk from the marinas and Yacht Clubs within Cowes, while its proximity to the water and beach mean it is a great place to relax with a view after a day on the water.
A few minutes walking takes you past the Royal Yacht Squadron (Cowes Castle) and into town, with its superb collection of bars, restaurants and boutique shops, alternatively you can walk the other way for sea views and countryside via the Island's Coastal Path.
Aside from visting for sailing, Cowes is a great place to base yourself to explore the island by car, bike or on foot. Alternatively Southampton (Shopping) and Portsmouth (Shopping, Historic Dockyard, HMS Victory and many other attractions are easily accessable via fast ferries from Cowes taking just 25 minutes, while London is only 2 hours away by ferry and train.
