“Perfect Beach House”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

There is something very familiar about this house. You walk in and feel like you are at home, its very easy to become comfortable here very quickly. It is spacious and the decor is calming, it is the perfect place to chill out. There is a decent size tv on the wall in the lounge for the evenings when the weather isn't so great and you want to curl up and watch a blu ray plus an ipod dock in the lounge as well, and wi fi if you just can't live without the internet. There is a terrace next to the beach (with access to the beach) at the bottom of the large garden for when you want to sit in the sun and watch the boats go by. There is a large glassed veranda at the front of the house with chairs/table and a rattan day bed for sunbathing and relaxing. The bedrooms are comfortable and contemporary, as are the bathrooms. Gurnard is a nice place for a walk along the esplanade into Cowes or head in the other direction along the coastal path, and there are some great places to eat nearby. The house is clean and fresh, and the owner very helpful and welcoming. We arrived to freshly baked scones, clotted cream, jam. milk and wine in the fridge. We brought our 2 spaniels and they loved swimming in the sea everyday and running around on the beach.We would come back here in a heartbeat (and actually we did!)

Wow what a review! Thanks, it makes all the hard work worth it. I wasn't expecting you back quite so soon but glad I could accommodate you and make your second week on the sunny Isle of Wight as enjoyable as the first, (although I didn't do so well with the weather order!)

Thanks for that, I do all the cleaning myself to ensure it is of the highest standard. Gurnard is a fantastic place to holiday as well as live, with so much for all ages to do or just to sit and watch the sun go down.

A wonderful family home with lots of thoughtful touches. Very comfortable with a nice big TV!! Location is perfect! We kayaked every day from the bottom of the garden. Lovely walk along beach to pub/cafe - just watch out for the tide coming in on the way back! Loved the house and island! We will be back. Thank you Carol.

“Great house with amazing views!”
Reviewed 12 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

House has been recently renovated & the attention to detail is obvious. All rooms were very clean & decorated to good standard.

We were made very welcome by the owner - buckets & spades given to the children & a cream tea /cupcakes & wine for the adults.

The views across the Solent are fantastic & we spent every evening watching the sunset with a glass of wine (whatever the weather) whilst the kids played on the beach.

Gurnard is a nice quiet village. Little Gloster restaurant is just down the road (2/3 min walk) & is a great place to watch the world go by at any time of day and food is great too. The beachside cafe is also very good.

This was our first time to IOW but will definitely be returning & hopefully to the Beach house.
