We stayed at this apartment in cowes for 1 week in February. We had excellent and quick communication from the owners about the apartment and surrounding area. We found the apartment really easily too we left the red funnel ferry went across the chain ferry (which was 2.60 per car) and the apartment was just there on the right ! We were met by kevin, who helps look after the property, and who showed us around the apartment. It has a easy to get into parking space and a lift to get you up to the second floor. There are 2 bedrooms, the master is on suite, a family bathroom then there is a very well equipped kitchen, dining area, and lounge with a great view over the all of the boats in the marina. There is a balcony where you can sit and watch the ferries going to and fro. Out of the apartment to the right you can easily walk into the town, there are lovely shops and a sainsburies, across the chain ferry there is a waitrose too. We had a great stay.
Very good location only a few minutes walk into Cowes centre and overlooking the Solent. The apartment is the best we have stayed in over the Christmas period - it had everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was very well equipped, comfortable living area and great view from the balcony. Highly recommended.
We have visited Marinus many times but number 32 is positively outstanding. Nothing was left to chance and the spotless apartment provided everything we could possibly have wanted, including lovely views over Cowes bay and its yachts. For a restful break it is extremely pleasant to simply sit on th balcony and watch the activity on the water. We sincerely hope to return very soon.
Thought I would write a review as the last one seemed to be from 3 years ago (2014) which initially put me off when choosing our holiday rental. Need not have been concerned, this apartment was not just exactly as advertised but even better! Wonderfully spacious for just the 2 of us (and would not have been cramped for the maximum capicity of guests which I would say is really 4 as the dining table has just 4 chairs - although there was a spare one in the bedroom). The property is luxurious but welcoming and filled with lovely decorative items to give it a homely feeling. The main bedroom has a king size (or possibly larger- didn't measure it!) comfortable bed and there is a spacious ensuite with a large shower. The main bathroom has a bath with over bath shower (so facilities will suit everyone). Very well appointed kitchen with plenty of crockery and equipment to suit every level of cook. The Wifi worked well. We appreciated that there is a dedicated off road parking space and very easy access by lift (the lift doors are about a metre away from the apartment front door). The main attraction is of course the amazing view over part of the marina and the Solent, with vessels of all shapes and sizes going past - a never ending panorama which we never tired of. Probably one of the best apartments we have ever rented. Just super!
