Choosing the perfect home for your family and friends beach getaway is easy – welcome to Living the Beach Dream, your number one choice for an island escape.

This bright and uplifting beach home sleeps up to 10 guests comfortably in four well-appointed bedrooms with linen and towels provided. The layout of this home caters well to large groups with open plan living. Whether you are cooking up a storm with the generous array of kitchenware or enjoying the outdoor BBQ and entertaining area, you can all be part of the action.

A perfect home for three generations, the kids' playroom is a brilliant space with a comfy couch, bean bags, colouring books and a flat screen TV, plus unlimited WiFi throughout the entire home to stay connected and Netflix in the living room. The three zones in the house provide everybody with their own space, even the little ones who need a daytime nap. The kids' oasis has a split system with heating and air-conditioning, plus a cot and highchair are available on request. Cosy and warm in winter but in summer it is lovely and cool. 

The large living area with heating and cooling is designed with simple and fresh décor. Let the sea breeze flow through the beautiful glass doors and choose to watch Netflix or one of the many movies from the DVD library or relax with some tunes on the sound system. Enjoy dining either indoors or alfresco whilst sharing all those goodies you have purchased at the local Cowes Produce Markets.

Take advantage of being so close to everything with the shops, cafes, local RSL and of course the beach within 5-15 minutes away. Explore the gorgeous town of Cowes with the 4 bikes supplied for your convenience.

Best of all, you are welcome to bring your furry mates with you, as this happy home is pet-friendly! Let them enjoy the space to stretch in the sun and the great undercover area to stay out of the rain.

A beautiful house in paradise ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The house was just up the road from the Jain shops and close to walk to the rsl. It was perfect for our family as the kids had a seperate space at the other end of the house. Our dog enjoyed big back yard and I loved the water fall outside the kitchen window. We will be back to stay again soon

Perfect in every way! This house was perfect for our crew! We were a party of 4 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 infants, it had absolutely everything we need for a pleasant and relaxing break. Walking distance to the shops, beach etc. After booking I read the reviews and saw that someone had complained about the noise from the road, but when I was there I didn’t even notice it! It’s hardly worth complaining about. We can’t wait to come back!!! Review Submitted: 27 Sep 2018 | Date of Stay: September 2018
