Cowes Holiday Homes

  The local sailing, holiday & short term agency  

What we offer our guests.
Cowes holiday homes has seen massive growth in business in the last few years  because we provide excellent customer service.
We always reply to any potential booking promptly day or night.
We always meet & greet our guests into the property.
We are always happy to pick guests up with our courtesy bus.
We offer 15% off Red Funnel Ferry vehicle crossings.
We always make sure our guests can make a cuppa by at least leaving tea, coffee sugar & milk ( this is very popular).
Our holiday homes that are serviced by Empire cleaning are reputed to be the highest standard of cleanliness.
We had zero complaints this season & have several reviews that have commented on the cleanliness of the house & the quality of linen.
Our far as we as concerned, getting the booking is only part of our work. We are only satisfied once the guests have left & as they often do, tell us they will be coming back.
