About Steve Chalker
I live and work in Hertfordshire, England, with a wife and young family. We are fun loving and enjoy being on or near the sea whenever possible.
Steve Chalker purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Steve Chalker chose Cowes
My wife and I recently completed our Day Skipper sailing qualifications and wanted to spend more time near the water. We fell in love with the energy and vibe in West Cowes that becomes so peaceful in winter. We love the tranquility of walking from the house along the waterfront whilst the kids play on the beaches and watching the boats sail by. A wave of relaxation hits us as we step aboard the High Speed Ferry knowing that we are truely leaving the rat race behind...even if only temporarily.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is ideally located right in the centre of Cowes, only a few minutes from shops, restaurants and the quaint highstreet. The warm and cosy 150 year old cottage is a perfect getaway and you feel amongst island life as soon as you arrive. There is no need to drive anywhere and walking in the sea air and watching the boats go by is so relaxing.
This property I would highly recommend as the house was lovely, clean and in a perfect location 👍
10/10 marks from me and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Would definitely love to return and stay here again.
Well done to Steve.
Many many thanks - glad you enjoyed.
Location was best
The owner was so helpful.
House wasn't cleaned properly, aspecially kitchen, living room rug needs changing.
Also spotted a bedbugs in the bedroom upstairs.
We stayed here for Cowes week and the location was absolutely perfect. No hiking up and down hills carrying heavy wet weather gear for us! There were five of us staying there and the house was a great size and very practically laid out. The bedrooms are all good sizes although it is worth noting that the staircase to the top bedroom is very steep (not a problem for us but worth noting if you are planning to put people with limited stair climbing ability up there!)
Steve was fantastic from our first inquiries all the way through to the end of our stay. He accommodated our extra linen requests as we had crew changes throughout the week and always answered emails nice and quickly. He also provides you with a welcome pack of information before you arrive which is a lovely touch.
We would definitely stay here again.
Lovely house, perfect location
Title says it all, the house is really nice and ideally situated in the middle of West Cowes. Wife, 2 children and I had a great time. Fantastic beach at Sandown/Yaverland, water nice temperature for swimming. Plenty of things to do round and about on the Isle of Wight. Great holiday.
Very convienent cosy cottage!
Good accommodation in centre of Cowes, close to Redjet ferry and food shops. Ideal position for exploring Cowes.
Perfect stay on "The Island"
Accommodations were as advertised, lots of charm, comfortable, walking distance to everything. Traveled with wife and two teenage boys, plenty of space in the house; wonderful stay. Thanks.
Special interest holidays:
Perfect for crew accommodation given proximity to major marinas and town centre.
Beaches and marinas very close by.
The property is 5 minutes walk from the high speed Cowes Ferry. Whilst the islands bus services are very good and frequent, a car is recommended for exploring further than Cowes itself. There is a public car park across the road, and visitor permits are available upon request for a small fee for utilising on street parking.
Slap bang in the heart of Cowes itself - most of the island is only 20 mins away by car. There are innumerable attractions on the island including steam railway, adventure theme parks, zoo as well as more natural attractions of beautiful beaches, the Needles and Alum Bay.
The cottage contains lots of leaflets from local attractions as well as maps and charts of the local area for planning days inside and out.
