  • "We really enjoyed our stay lovely property very well equipped - we would book again."

    Clearer central heating instructions would have been appreciated rather than pointing you to a complex manufacturers booklet.

    Very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your feedback. We will take a look at the instructions to make sure they are as clear as possible. Property Owner

  • "The property was as advised and very comfortable."

    Gaining entry was simple and straight forward, the house keeps warm very well and all the facilities and additional handy items were thoughtful (eg. fan heaters in each bedroom, walking sticks, binoculars, books, DVDs, etc.). The only area of improvement are the window blinds, some were stuck or broken, so we could not open the mail window blind on the first floor bedroom. Also, having a sitting room on the first floor was a bit odd, but we got used to it eventually.

  • "Property could do with a general clean."

    The oven was filthy and has not been cleaned in a long time. Property very nice and location good, shame about the cleanliness, especially that you cannot get into the property until 4pm which means you lose the best part of a day of your holiday.

    The house was clean with the exception of a few minor details (cobwebs and the door in the en-suite needed a wipe) The beds were comfortable, shower amazing and the washing machine and tumble dryer were a bonus. We loved the house and would stay here again without a doubt. Thank you

  • "Beautiful property this was a 2nd stay there."

    Cleaning was much much better than last year. I am totally in love with Portland Weymouth and Dorset. Perfectly positioned for exploring. And wonderful for a family to share. We'll equipped kitchen. Fossil hunting towards Lyme regis is good fun. Monkey World is brilliant for a day out too. Only feeback was Mattresses were a bit uncomfortable/worn but sleepable on. Just not to good for bad backs. You need to keep an eye on them for wear.

  • "Really lovely property."

    Spacious kitchen on the ground floor and spacious living room on the first floor. Location was great to visit different parts of the area easily. Parking for two cars really useful. We booked for 8 people; 4 adults and 4 children. The downstairs twin room was only made up for one though, and the pull-out under bed was a bit grubby, with the space under the bed looking like it hadn’t been cleaned in a while- noted by our friend who slept on the pull-out. We did find the extra bedding though so easily sorted. Everywhere else was spotless. The children loved all of the board games and dvd collection during the rainy spells. The adults appreciated the beer fridge. One comment was we could do with a washing line in the garden to hang wet towels and swimsuits. We spent a lovely week here and would happily visit again.

    It was furnished and equipped so well. We admired all the paintings, and appreciated how well stocked was the kitchen. The wine fridge was a very useful addition. The new LIDL store on the road to the sailing centre was very convenient. There is also a Tescos in Portland.

  • "Great house and had plenty of rooms / space, so ideal for larger family holidays."

    Location was great to get to Weymouth, West Bay and around Dorset. Loved the interior in the house aswell. Couldn't find the travel cot on arrival, however one quick phone call and someone was happy to assist (however we then found it so was no need). If you want a family staycation in Dorset then you cannot go wrong with staying here.

  • "The house was in an amazing location, not far from the beach and in easy access to local pubs, also a short drive to Weymouth town centre."

    The only thing I would say is that the cleanliness could have been improved, the grill pan needed cleaning before we used it and some of the glasses weren't great either. Apart from that it was great! I would however ensure you take amenties with you for the kitchen (basics are provided but may need some cling film, foil, condiments etc) we would definitely stay here again 100%.
