Stay on a boat in Newport, United Kingdom

This unique 2 bedroom marina apartment from Waterside Rentals Ltd offers guests a perfect base from which to explore the Isle of Wight. Wake up alongside the boats of the Island Harbour Marina, only 2 miles south of Cowes and north of Newport and relax on your private deck in the sunshine. The apartment is newly furnished and we will do everything we can to ensure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Layout

Our floating apartment has everything you want for a relaxing getaway. Newly furnished with comfortable living areas, two double beds, a double sofa bed, a modern kitchen space and a shared bathroom. There are three separate sun terraces for your use, one being on the roof, meaning you will be able to follow the sunshine and soak up every last ray!

Onboard

Starting with the living area, guests have access to a free-view television and comfortable sofa, which extends to become a double sofa-bed. There is a modern dining area with crockery and a well-equipped kitchenette, including a fridge-freezer, hob, microwave oven and sink. Basic cooking equipment such as pots and pans are included along with a kettle for that morning cup of tea on the deck!

The apartment contains two double bedrooms each with a comfortable double bed. There is a shared bathroom with toilet, basin and shower.

You have no less than three sun terraces from which to soak up the sun's rays, one of which is on the roof of the apartment, offering 360 degree exposure to the sunshine should you want it and a great vantage point to view the Island Harbour Marina.

Onsite

Explore the aforementioned natural beauty of your surroundings at the Island Harbour Marina right on your doorstep. The Marina is also home to The Breeze Restaurant & Bar, known for producing home-cooked meals from fresh, local products. There is something for everyone as they offer great vegetarian and vegan options.
There is free parking along the waterfront of the Marina and free wifi available throughout the site. There is an on-demand watertaxi service which can take guests from the Marina up and down the River to Cowes, East Cowes, Newport and The Folly - a great way to get around and see the surrounding areas.

The Area

From the Marina website: 'An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the marina is home to many species of bird and wildlife. Meadows and woodland copses slope down to the marina’s edge'. This description is a true reflection of the idyllic area within which our apartment is moored.

The Marina is located on the River Medina and the famous port town of Cowes is only around 2 miles upstream. On the north coast of the island, Cowes hosts the oldest and largest sailing regatta in the world - an event that attracts thousands from far and wide. The town itself offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants to explore. In East Cowes, on the other side of the River, you can visit the historic Osbourne, which was once Queen Victoria's seaside residence. This is an easy cycle ride from the Marina and there are a range of museums, galleries and cultural events to experience in the area too.

Newport is the County Town, or capital, of the island and is easily reached via a public nature path from the Marina. There is plenty to see and do here, with shops and restaurants aplenty. Newport hosts the incredibly popular annual 'Isle of Wight Festival', which is located only 30 minutes away by foot at Seaclose Park, making our apartment the perfect base for festival-goers.

What's special about this boat

We really do think that the Island Harbour Marina is the ideal spot from which to explore the Isle of Wight. With a modern, comfortable and peaceful apartment to relax in amongst beautiful surroundings you can experience terrific tranquillity. This is not at the expense of the hustle and bustle of the historic and culturally vibrant areas however, as these are easily accessible by foot, bicycle, car and boat! We especially recommend our apartment for those visiting the Isle of Wight festival as it is very close by but far away enough to avoid noise disturbance.
