By default, a booking at this home does not include optional linen (top & bottom sheets, bath towels and pillowcases). What is included are doonas (quilts) with covers, pillows without covers, tea towels, hand towels and bathmats. If you would like the optional linen included in your booking, please let us know, including which beds you would like it provided for.

Perfect “BASE” in Cowes

Paul K - 12th March 2024

A small group of us just spent 6 nights staying in Penguin Place and absolutely loved it. We utilised the well equipped kitchen every night and the convenience of having Coles just up the street. The 2 living areas were great places to chillout after a long day of motor racing. I will be highly recommending your accommodation to all of my friends. See you next time :-)
