This resort blew me away with an amazing spacious cottage, with everything I could have wished for. The staff were so accommodating and helpful and the beds were so comfortable. I will be telling everyone about my experience and will be staying here again!

Family getaway

Such a wonderful, peaceful place. Check out time should be later than 10, so we could have enjoyed a bit more of the morning. Within walking distance to everything.

Nice cottages close to beaches and Cowes and shops

Pros: everything
Cons: nothing
Location: Shopping center in Cowes, the beach, the Nobbies and penguin parade.
. The place was clean and the staff very friendly. It is child friendly and the pool was clean and warm. The restaurant was great and the staff there were great. Close to everything you need. I will be going back there again.

Fabulous place to stay

We had a wonderful long weekend away staying in the 3 bedroom cottage unit 1. The cottage was spotless clean and very spacious with everything you need. Comfortable beds and a nice shower. We met Jenny on arrival and she made us feel very welcome. The restaurant on the property was also excellent serving delicious food and only a 1 minute walk back to unit. Close to town and other attractions. Definitely will be staying here again.
