  • "Excellent location for couples - wouldn’t recommend for families due to noise late at night and no garden"

    Thank you so very much for your feedback. As we are a very central location (also with a parking space which is unusual) sadly noise is beyond our control. Also, we do not advertise a garden in the particulars due to our very central location, however there is a beautiful park only 5 minutes walk from the property. We hope to welcome you again!

  • "It's not suitable for 6 people the room on top floor has no storage at all."

    With 3 people living out of suitcase for 6 nights was not good at all. Location was brilliant For family of 4 this would be perfect Will defo return to Cowes as family of 4 but the cost of house for 4 people would be too expensive

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We have done an update for the new season and included more storage. We hope to welcome you back! Property Owner

  • "We made the most of Levante cottage but unfortunately we would NOT be returning, anyone looking to rent this place as a family make sure you read the reviews and seriously consider what’s being said."

    The cleanliness was very poor, the place felt and in many places was visibly dirty. The en-suit shower was disgusting, main bathroom the bath had mould round it and felt unclean. The paint was flaking off the walls in multiple places, unfortunately the cottage it’s self didn’t come anywhere near expectations and nowhere near value for money! Nowhere to hang or store clothes, this we expected as we had seen this in other reviews - but really wouldn’t take much to put up some hooks or hanging solutions for hanging clothes. The cottage isn’t very big so suitcase storage is a problem. The location was as described and great to be in the middle of Cowes with lovely bars and restaurants. But this also comes at some major disadvantages, EVERY morning at 5am delivery lorry arrives at local shop right outside the cottage banging and crashing around with engine running. You also get people standing at taxi rank and walking back from bars normally at the end of the night shouting and swearing - not the cottages fault but families should be aware. So I’m summary.. location was lovely but cottage didn’t come anywhere near expectations and VERY over priced for what is being offered.

  • "Levante is a lovely cottage that is well decorated and ideally located."

    It was very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. We loved the lounge, and the sofas are very comfy, but if there were 7 people staying, it’d be a bit of a squeeze. Other reviews have commented on noise problems from the taxi rank just outside, buses and M&S delivery vans. We didn’t experience any of this, and also didn’t hear any noise from the high street. However we do agree with all the other comments re lack of storage. There is 1 chest of drawers in the smaller of the 2 bedrooms on the first floor, and a couple of wall hooks in the en-suite room but that is all! There was only 2 of us staying and we used the other bedrooms to keep our clothes in and provide a bit more space for changing. If you had more than 2 staying you’d probably have to keep your clothes in your case under the beds. Of the 2 bedrooms on the first floor the double bed In the smaller of the two rooms is pushed up against the wall and has a raised bedstead, so if 2 of you were sleeping in it and you needed to get up in the night, the person nearest the wall would have a real job getting out. We had 2 dogs with us and whilst there isn’t a garden or private outdoor space, there is a lovely park just a few minutes walk from the cottage so we didn’t find it a problem. We loved the cottage and it’s location but personally feel it would be better if they removed a couple of beds and increased the storage. We would recommend this place but only for 2 adults and a couple of kids.

  • "The accommodation was not sufficient for 7 people neither was there sufficient hanging space and space in the kitchen and downstairs areas."

    The accommodation was nicely decorated and the host very helpful, it was nice to be close to town but was far too small.

  • "We arrived on the Friday and found that there were some good and bad points about the accommodation."

    Good Points 1. Really central for all shops/pubs/restaurants 2. Good to have parking included 3. Good Facilities for three people, but not sure how you would seat 7 people comfortably in the lounge Bad Points 1. No Hanging space for clothes/no clothes hangers ( only 3 clothes hangers for three people, only wall hooks in one bedroom, which were so close to cupboard that once you hang clothes up you cannot open cupboards 2. Stairs very steep which was not stated in accommodation description, and we had a 84 year old with us and it was difficult getting up and down. 3. Very noisy in the evenings (taxi rank right outside) and mornings (delivery lorries unloading for shops) There were other small items that could be improved and we think that the owner should try staying there for a couple of weeks and they would see where the accommodation could be improved.

  • "Whilst central and comfortable noise of the town prevents sleep!"

    · A lovely cottage, very clean and quite well appointed and very central · BUT This house is situated within a few feet of the taxi rank, main bus stop and only parking place for all the delivery lorries for Cowes High Street so it is extremely noisy throughout the night. When you add up the constant noise of taxi customers, bus passengers and deliveries and then put on top of that the nightly (and very loud) dustbin collections and street sweeping machines it is IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to get a nights sleep. Even with the windows closed (and then the rooms become like heat boxes) the noise is intolerable (and that is with half of us wearing earplugs we bought after the first night. I am quiet amazed that the owners do not disclose this in the property description. .It is also somewhat surprising that with sleeping for 7 in the house there is only seating for 4 in the sitting room!

  • "The house is lovely but it’s super noisy outside at night."

    There is a taxi tank right under the bedroom window which makes for very loud late night conversations and also made it impossible to leave the bedroom window open. This really effected how much we enjoyed the house.

    An extra key would have been helpful, it's not always possible to use the key-safe as one (or more) may be still inside and locked in.

  • "If you want a holiday destination with access to all town facilities, Levantine is the place for you."

    M & S food store (open for breakfast) 50m, High Street 50m. Importantly it has its own reserved parking space, but it's not adjacent to the house. Tip: for loading/unloading use one of the 2 bays next to the M & S taxi rank, where you can stop for 45 minutes. In that do not drive down Cross Street. The house has been refurbished to a very high standard and is a very comfortable base for an IOW holiday.

About the location


Newport 5 miles; Ryde 12 miles; Shanklin 14.5 miles; Ventnor 15.4 miles; Freshwater 13 miles.

The bustling port of Cowes is situated by the mouth of the river Medina, and is divided into two distinct towns, linked by the regular floating bridge chain ferry. Both communities have much to offer visitors, with West Cowes known as a world famous yachting centre, with superb facilities for all kinds of watersports, as well as being considered the cycling gateway to the island with the National Cycle Route 23 running through it. It also has a beach and a wealth of excellent restaurants, inns, and plenty of interesting niche shops; there is something for everyone with a fabulous vibe. East Cowes is best known for Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s Italian style country retreat - a tour of the sumptuous royal apartments and magnificent gardens is a must. Cowes is an ideal base for exploring the rest of the island, such as sandy beaches, lovely walking country, picturesque chines and many family attractions such as the The Needles and the Isle of Wight music festival.
