If you were looking for cottages like Vida Floating Home, how about trying these:

For a holiday with a difference this is it! Situated on a private pontoon in Bembridge Harbour, you will have fond memories of your time on this unique floating home for years to come. Park your car up at the nearby slipway and take a short stroll, while admiring the gorgeous scenery of course, along the pontoon to this idyllic retreat.

A large step takes you onto the decking and from there steep wooden steps (please take care) lead up to the roof terrace with its fabulous waterfront views, where you can while away the time, G&T in hand, watching the boats sailing in and out of the harbour. The outside steps are so steep that it feels safer to go down them the way you went up them ie facing into the steps. Tastefully furnished throughout, Vida has an open living-room complete with a fully-equipped kitchen-area with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine/drier and even a dishwasher!

This really is a great home-from-home and imagine all those scrumptious meals you can cook up and enjoy al fresco on the roof terrace, taking in the wonderful view. If the weather is not so kind to you, the beautiful view can be enjoyed from the dining-area too and there is also a comfortable sitting-area, where you can have a cosy night in watching your favourite film on the TV. The pretty double bedrooms are light and airy, one with a king-size bed and both with direct access onto the wrap-around deck, and there is a modern bathroom; under-floor heating will keep you toasty whatever the time of year.

Bembridge village is just a stroll away, where you will find a baker, butcher, restaurants and pubs.
