Sunbear Lodge is a lovely place to stay. It was clean and fresh. Wish we could have made more use of the deck but weather was a bit cool! It was sunny in the afternoons but we were off exploring some of what the island offers. Overall, we had what we wanted: a relaxing long weekend away from life's cares.

Thanks for the great review Suzie. Maybe come back for a return visit in the warmer months and you'll get more use out of the deck

We LOVED staying at Andy's place! It was the perfect location for us and and two little boys (2 and 4). They were able to explore the gardens and it was a short, safe walk to a beautiful beach where they could explore rock pools and swim. The neighbourhood was quiet and friendly. Easy access to Cowes and all attractions, with a general store and deli type store close by. The house was clean and comfortable. The extra little touches left by our hosts made us feel instantly welcome in their beautiful home. Native birds feed on the deck daily which was a real treat for the kids. Overall, we couldn't fault our stay at all and are planning to return later in the year. Thank-you for a peaceful and relaxing stay, Andy and Pete!

We were just here Christmas 2016 for 4 days. What an amazingly relaxed experience we had. This place has easy access to beaches, very kids friendly beach 10 minutes walk away, our favorite YCW beach 10 minutes drive away, but best was penguin parade 5 minutes by drive (11pm when parade finishes and kids are shivering in cold you are only 5 minutes away). We felt just like staying at home so easy and cozy so much so our son wanted to live 10 more days :). Thank you Andy n Pete for being an awesome host. Highly Recommend.

Andy was a great host, he made us feel so welcome with all the little surprises in the fridge and in the breakfast basket. We never met him personally but the communication on mobile was great. The house is decorated with style and very well-equipped. A wonderful deck where you can have BBQ and watch the beautiful birds. It is really a quiet place and it's only a short stroll to the beach. As the weather was not so fine we were very happy about the electric blankets. We would defintively come back, but unfortunately it's so far away from our home in Germany.
