This spacious modern home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms is located on an artificial island over the picturesque and historic mill ponds that form part of Island Harbour. Comfortably furnished throughout with stunning river and countryside views from the balconies.

Island Harbour is one of the Solent’s best kept secrets situated on the River Medina, two miles south of Cowes making it one of the most picturesque riverside locations.

The peaceful marina offers many amenities including a licensed bar and bistro restaurant, 'The Breeze' within a few minutes’ walk serving good food. A little further (approx. 1/2 mile) stroll along the riverbank, or a trip down the river in a water taxi, leads to the popular Folly Inn again serving good food and large waterside terrace. The water taxi will also take you to Cowes or Newport. The extensive marina grounds include dedicated barbecue areas and a children’s adventure playground. Bicycles and boats can be hired from the Harbourmaster’s Office and basic provisions and newspapers bought from Richardson’s Chandlery.

Newport, the islands capital, with an abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants is around a 30 minute walk along the riverside walk or a 10 minute cycle, or a few minutes by car. Cyclists and walkers can enjoy the local tracks linking many outstanding routes across the island.

Conveniently located to all major attractions on the Island including Queen Victoria's seaside home, Osborne House is about 2 1/2 miles away and Carisbrooke Castle can be found just the other side of Newport. The Island also has a number of sandy beaches located around the Island for a traditional family seaside holiday and are easily accessible.

Lazy Life’s Retreat is the perfect location for a truly amazing relaxing holiday.

What the North Wight has to offer:
The North of the Isle of Wight is home to the County Town of Newport, with the Medina River running through it towards the Solent dividing East Cowes and West Cowes. To the West are the villages of Shalfleet and Newtown Creek with a stunning Nature Reserve; to the East are Wootton Bridge and Quarr Abbey.

Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle are both with English Heritage, shrouded in their history and surrounded by beautiful grounds, definitely worth a visit. Quarr Abbey, further down the coast from Osborne, is a spectacular working Monastery with tea rooms. The Roman Villa in Brading often has educational classes in the café. Newtown is one of the oldest towns in the UK, situated near a nature reserve, a lovely place to walk and enjoy the wildlife.

Best known as the world's premier yachting centre, Cowes is the Island's main port. Yachtsmen from all over the world participate in the season's prestigious sailing events, the best known being Cowes Week, held annually at the beginning of August. Shopping in the narrow pedestrianised High Street is a delight, with some excellent shops, many catering for the yachting fraternity. The town also has an array of fashionable clothing shops, gift shops, delicatessens, cafes, restaurants and lively pubs.

The Nature Reserve at Newtown is the beautiful home to many species of wild fowl. In land Parkhurst Forest offers acres to walk dogs and children, with squirrel trails and woodland for picnics and adventure games.
