"What a great place,luxurious, romantic, comfortable and an amazing location. Can be noisy when the ferry passes but all part of the atmosphere! Lovely balcony and great kitchen if you're eating in. Without nitpicking I would definitely give it a 10 out of 10. "

"We had a fantastic short break. Beautiful apartment with everything you need and fantastic views.
We would recommend to friends"
By Jessica & Darren
"We have had a very enjoyable and comfortable few days at Osborne Apartment.
Enjoyed the Welcome Pack and the great vista and there is always something to see.
VIP were extremely helpful in arranging our ferry crossing and being at the end of the phone for any other queries, etc.
Looks like the local residents association have plans to spice up the public areas.
This is a wonderful setting and we will spread the word."
By Ute & Nigel King
"An excellent apartment with all you could possibly need for a break away.

Also great service from VIP in arranging our ferry crossings.
Would definitely recommend."

"The Flat is right on the seafront and has great views of the Solent and cruise liners! VIP Solutions information was very detailed and had a helpful book in the flat. The flat was very clean with great linen and towels included. We chose not to cook but the kitchen was very well equipped. We really appreciated the milk and wine left for us. The location means there are bars and coffee shops underneath and around the corner. We really enjoyed people watching form the balcony and recommend this let. "
By Nicky
"The apartment was presented exactly as described and shown in the photos. It was spotlessly clean, with lovely thoughtful touches and great attention to detail. Location is excellent and so relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the world and their boats go by with a glass of rose courtesy of the owner as a welcome gift! From the time of booking, the staff at VIP who manage the apartment, were extremely helpful communicating by mobile and email even offering to book the ferry crossing which although wasn't required is a lovely gesture. Everything in the flat was in perfect condition and working order and provided everything needed for our stay. There's even a 'snagging book' for any faults that do occur so that it can be put right for the next guests. We had a slight problem with the shower not draining properly but it didn't spoil our stay in any way and I've already recommended it to all my friends. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing stay over the Bank Holiday."
"Absolutely stunning apartment. Spotlessly clean, well decorated and exactly as per the photos on the listing. Brilliant location with stunning views of the Solent and Cowes harbour. Everything provided that you would need including milk and a bottle of wine. The only slight thing that lets it down is the communal areas, but don't let this deter you from booking. Once the apartment door is closed behind you, you are in a different world. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would have no problem recommending to family and friends."
By Michael
"Perfect location, close enough to central Cowes but with views of the Solent. Lovely apartment, really clean and with everything you need to feel at home. "
By Jonathan
"Simply wonderful apartment and location! Absolutely loved relaxing on the balcony every evening with our G & T, watching the boats go by.
The apartment is so well equipped and tastefully furnished, it didn't disappoint. The wine, milk and welcome pack were a lovely gesture.
We've already recommended it to family & friends and hope to return.
Many thanks for this great getaway and for providing everything we needed for a relaxing few days."
By Diane & Charlie
"A lovely welcome pack with a bottle of rose, milk, tea and coffee. The apartment was spotless and excellently located facing The Parade next to the Royal London Yacht Club with wonderful views across the Solent. The apartment had everything needed for a relaxing stay and we spent every evening enjoying drinks on the balcony watching the yachts returning to their berths and the cruise liners passing by. I highly recommend this apartment, simply lovely and lived up to everything in the description and more. "
By Diana
"Had a fabulous relaxing time at this gorgeous apartment. Perfect for soaking up the atmosphere of Cowes festival and fireworks. We were blessed with 3 days of sunshine. Sad to leave the Isle of Wight."
By Karen & Geraldine
"Lovely apartment with everything we needed. Fabulous location with live music outside the window every night!
Shame about the lack of parking space because of the seafront being closed for Cowes Week.
Only a slight cloud on what was an otherwise lovely, relaxing holiday."
By Charles & Jane
"What a little gem! An oasis in the midst of a currently neglected building.
The apartment is beautifully decorated with some exquisite individual touches.
The location is fantastic and we hope to be able to be back again to spend more time on the balcony, watching the world. Thanks for a super week."
By Kay & Norman Wilkins
"We spent a relaxing week at this lovely apartment. We love the Island and have enjoyed a base where we could sit and watch the Solent actiity."
By Margaret & Michael Mills
"We had a wonderful time. The view is fantastic and the apartment is high quality and well presented.
We will recommend it to all our friends and want to come back ourselves."
By Thomas Graepel & family
"We had an absolutely lovely time in this very central, well equipped and stylishly furnished apartment with the best view possible. We will recommend it to friends and it's very likely that we will be coming back again. The detailed arrival instructions were very good, especially when it gets to the rather hidden entrance to the car park. "
