“Nice but with major reservations”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2018

The Upside - 1. Spectacular views of The Solent. You could sit and look all day. 2. Comfortable interior including seating and beds. 3. Kitchen well equipped. The Downside - 1. Cottage was not clean; cobwebs hung from staircase, dust on ledges in kitchen 2. Downstairs shower room is small and dark; shower leaked over entire floor, under door and soaked mat in kitchen. 3. No feeding bowls for dogs in this dog-friendly cottage 4. No sun umbrella. Weather was hot and we sweltered outside or had to sit indoors 5. Most inconvenient of all - we had no wif-fi all week. This had a significant effect on my ebay business. Whilst this was not the owners' fault they have not acknowledged that we paid for this service and that it was not delivered. I have sent several emails requesting a refund of just £25 (Which we ourselves had given to visitors last March in a holiday cottage owned by us and in a similar situation). There has been no response to any of my emails. 6. There were three of us in the cottage and each of us was, in general, disappointed.

Owner's reply: Really sad that Pat feels the necessity to find small things to moan about because she feels disgruntled about the WIFI. I have responded to every email she has sent , offered £25 as the good will gesture and asked her to become a respectful dog owner by not leaving dog poo in the cottage garden and our neighbours garden and probably on the beach and pavement too. Sorry the weather was too hot, a few cobwebs which can develop overnight, a little bit of dust,the shower room wasn’t large enough, the water didn’t drain quickly and the WIFI went down , we reported it immediately, it took 2 days for an engineer, they then said it was internal so we had to wait for another engineer to arrive on the Friday Pat was leaving, due to her dog being aggressive towards the engineer, She had to hold it for an hour so we gave her an hour extra for her departure time. So sorry we didn’t come up to your standards.

“Enjoyable stay in a cosy characterful cottage”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2014

We arrived on a dark wet evening and it was lovely to walk into a cosy welcoming room. All the facilities we needed were there and, of course, the view was spectacular. We used it as a base to watch the local sailing events and also to visit the dockyards in Portsmouth. we had an enjoyable relaxing week.

A lovely small cottage in a superb location. Just expect peace and quiet and you will not be disappointed. There is plenty of interesting places and shops to visit but locally there is everything within easy reach . Our pleasure was the magnifIcent views and the sails on the Solent. Plenty of walking ang good food at local venues. The shrubs in the garden are beginning to obscure the views from the patio but viws from upstairs are wonderful and we hope to go again

“Just what we needed”

Reviewed 8 May 2012

3 of us staying for 3 weeks at Cowes View for convalescence for my husband and his son - was great. Plenty of room, very comfy beds, bathrooms upstairs and down, ditto TVs, well equipped kitchen, and a washing machine in a separate little building, marvellous. And such interesting nautical decoration, felt cosy and at home straight away. Then there was the Solent just there to watch, very therapeutic, and with all sorts of boating activity - you had to be there, and lots of birds, bring your binoculars. Weather was varied from heavy fog, rain, very breezy and then warm enough to sit outside and have lunch! Always something different to see, and the beach down the path for walking if you could manage it. Would really like to visit again.
