“Fantastic House”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed at the cliffhanger for a weekend. The house is absolutely beautiful. Finished to an extremely high standard. Very comfortable beds with very good quality linen. Kitchen has a fantastic range of accessories and equipment. Magnificent spiral staircase sweeps through the centre of the house. The rooftop terrace is stunning overlooking cowes and seafront. 2 minute walk to cowes high street. Great communication with the owner who was very helpful and made the booking easy. I would definately recommend this property.

“Stunning. The perfect house for a perfect weekend.”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I am just back from a wonderful weekend at Cliffhanger. What a find! We couldn't believe our luck, before we even opened the front door we knew it wasn't going to disappoint. The house is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful thick carpets, huge windows overlooking the ocean, an amazing roof area with lovely views, a balcony from one of the rooms where we sat and sipped our morning coffee in the sun, a great dining room where we had an amazing meal on the Saturday night, a show stopping spiral staircase through the centre of the house...the list goes on. I had agonised trying to find a house for this hen party for 8 but from the moment I made contact with the owner Chris, I knew I had finally found 'the one'! Chris recommended a local pub, The Union Inn, for dinner and drinks on the Friday night which was a success. Minutes from the house and good food. He made sure someone was there to take in our Sainsburys delivery (and to put it all away) and on the Saturday he found us the lovely Liana and Vanessa who cooked us a wonderful 4 course meal and some! Honestly, we were all delighted and amazed.

Cowes itself is such a great town to visit for a weekend. Very easy to get to from London and it has lots of quirky and interesting shoandroid discover and you are never more than a stones throw from the water. We took the coastal walk towards Gunard and had a champagne afternoon tea at The Little Gloster, where we were served lovely miniature cakes and fresh scones and finger sandwiches. It's worth the walk and is airy and bright and has views over the water. We sat outside and drank tea afterwards and then strolled back along the beach.

I can't recommend this house highly enough and we're all thinking about when we can next pay a visit!
