“Perfect house for a large group visiting IOW”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in the house for my boyfriends 30th birthday.
We were 16 people and still the house was big enough for all of us to sleep confortabily and have privacy.
The house is walking distance (20 min) of the ferry (west cowes) and town.
The views from the house on the sea side are fantastic since there is no building in front, just a school playground (or what it looked like it).

The garden is really big (enough for us to play cricquet!) and well taken care of.

All we can say is that we all loved it and many people congratulated me on the choice of house.

I would go back without thinking.

“Walkie Talkies trip”

There were fourteen people on this trip and we found Windrush perfect for our needs, plenty of bathrooms/shower rooms and bedrooms and large table and chairs in the kitchen and dining room for us all to sit around.

The house was situated in the perfect position, not far from Cowes and central to all places on the Isle of Wight.

I would definitely recommend this house for large groups.

“Perfect for big family holiday”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Windrush over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The house is very warm and welcoming and the rooms really big so we had loads of space. Everything was as per the description, the weather didn’t support going outside which is a shame as the garden is nice and big and ideal for ball games. Would certainly recommend this to other guests.

“Disappointing!”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

The images for this property are deceiving! It all looks very inviting but from a recent holiday, our family know otherwise! As for everything being in 'working order' this was not the case. Customer care was also lacking when we got in touch with the agent over things that had not been addressed, things that had been highlighted by previous holiday makers from a couple of years ago!!!!! (Evidence in Guest Book)
Certainly did not warrant the high rates that we had to pay because of the number of things that were wrong with the property! And, no compensation!
To name but a few:
Outdoor Refuse bins overflowing with rubbish.
Oven door did not function properly, door didn't seal and one shelf damaged.
No curtains in attic room.
No trampoline as shown in the pictures.
Climbing ladder broke on second day.
Faulty door frame to garden.
Broken Garden chairs. (One chair broke when our two year old granddaughter sat on it on the first day there)

Management Response

It was unfortunate that these guests had a few things wrong following a Cowes Week let following which things were not as we would have liked them. However as these guests admit they did their share of breaking as well for which they were not charged. Compensation was offered in the form of a reduced price further stay, this was refused. It is a shame that such small items caused a two star out of five rating, fortunately the other excellent reiews compensate for this!

“Perfect for large groups”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed here over the new year period. Our group consisted of 5 families (10 adults and 11 children) and the house worked perfectly for us. Not all the bedrooms are that big but with a shuffle around they worked well for us, (2 adults and 2 children in each). Although any more and we might have been a little cosy. The bathrooms, even though not all ensuite worked well also as there was one per family. The best thing about this house is the downstairs space, of which there is ample, (especially with 10 under 8's) there was enough rooms for all to enjoy! The garden is fab also, just a shame it was too wet for us to use it to its full potential - would be a great place to stay in the summer! Thanks to Jamieson for allowing us to stay and to Holly who was fab!!
