Lovely and cosy accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at California Dreaming.

The property was filled with everything we needed including some board games which we really enjoyed! It has a lovely outdoor space which was perfect for a BBQ and a drink in the evening.

The location is great! Very close to Smiths beach and just a short drive to Cowes.

Everything about our stay here was enjoyable. We hope to be back soon!!

Great place for your beach holdiday

  • 5 of 5

This well equipped, tidy cottage was our home away from home during the Australia Day long weekend. It's garden, quiet street setting was perfect for my son to enjoy outdoor fun. It's location gave us easy access to nearby beaches. I hope to stay at California Dreaming again one day. Toby made setup simple and welcoming.

Fantastic beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at California Dreaming, a fabulous and comfortable house, easy walking distance to beach and shop but tucked away in a quiet side street. The house is well equipped and has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing get away. We are already planning our next Smiths Beach holiday!
