  • "Lovely, bright and very clean apartment in the most perfect location."

    All basic facilities available including a washing machine which was a nice surprise and came in handy when travelling with two small children with a love for chocolate ice cream! The welcome pack with tea, biscuits, flapjacks, fudge, coffee and milk was much appreciated too. Only negative was that the 3 rugs/runners desperately need grip underlays to avoid an accident and to keep them looking tidy as you can’t walk on them without them sliding all over the place on the wooden floor so they were a bit annoying - but it’s a minor negative! We had a wonderful time and will certainly be returning, thank you.

  • "Communication was terrible, I tried booking it via air B and B and asked question on the size of the second room to see if space to fit a travel cote, had one generic reply and asked again four more time and zero reply I then called, each time I called I was on hold over 10 mins before anyone answered, very poor indeed On arrival we called and again a long time to pick up and we had been given HQ number not the local one so they couldn’t help us locate the property, had to transfer us."

    Quite shocking as it wasn’t a one off it was every time I called which was four times in total Corridors smelt of fish and cooking which came up from the restaurant down stairs which was not pleasant and very noisy upstairs maybe they don’t have carpets? Apartment itself was lovely, fantastic views , I would t suggest more than 2 people stay as be very crowded unless have children then maybe at a stretch

  • "Comfortable with great position."

    An outside light to aid with keypad in winter would be helpful.

  • "Having stayed at Starfish now 3x I really enjoy the location and peaceful atmosphere at the time of year as well as the comfortable surroundings of the property."

    My only complaint would be the check out time of 10.00am on a day that is still holiday, not allowing enough time for relaxing packing and a comfortable breakfast

  • "Fantastic position and quality of flat."

    Our only small concerns.... Most kitchens have basics of salt, pepper, a little sugar. The cafetiere is broken - we thought we'd fixed it, but it didn't last. The rugs feel hazardous, we moved them out the way - rug grips help? The office did not know about 3/7-day permits for parking, which we did find in Woodmead. Expensive, but better for us than running up the hill by 8am each morning.

  • "We have stayed in one of these bay apartments before, but Starfish far surpassed the other."

    After reading a previous review about cleanliness I was concerned, but it was spotless so I expect the owners had acted on the previous comments. Thank you. My 92 year old mom and I (with mobility issues) managed the stairs no problem. The views are outstanding and mom spent a lot of time in the window seat. It is Well stocked and the treats on arrival were lovely and very useful. The clean spacious bathroom with a large step in shower made life easier for us. We had a great stay despite unpredictable weather. One negative feedback I do wish rentals would always used a thick moisture proof pillow protector which are changed between clients. This would reduce the infection risk as a single pillow case is not a suitable protection for infection particularly with flu and covid around.

  • "Hi all Absolutely perfect location and the most amazing views."

    We love the goody bag, very thoughtful, however wanted to add a bit of constructive criticism : It would have been nice to have a cafetière in the property to use the coffee. -We realise its high season, however I would expect high standards when paying £750 for 2 nights,:so when a few basics were not met we left disappointed: -No shower gel, body gel? -The apartment is particularly dusty/ dirty especially around the window seating, kitchen cuboards etc. the place really does need a good deep clean/ vacuum -when we arrived , we found rubbish on the toilet floor, including dental floss/mini flosser, toilet holder ( see pic) Thanks

    Thank you for your comments, we're pleased to hear that you enjoyed the views offered from the apartment. We have passed on your comments regarding cleanliness to our Housekeeping Team for review, and are sorry to hear that you did not find it to our normal standards. We do not provide personal consumables for guests, but do provide a starter supply of toilet rolls, bin bags, hand soaps, washing-up liquid, cloths. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Our stay at the Starfish was very enjoyable from start to finish."

    The apartment was well furnished, kitchen was well equipped, comfortable and clean and in a fabulous position on the Marine Parade with spectacular sea and coastal views which could be seen from the bay window seat. It's very well positioned for the bars, restaurants and shops as well- we will be returning! Maybe a broader range of programmes on the TV? Sometimes you just want to stay in in the evening after a long full day of being out and about and settle down. Parking was a bit of a challenge but once we had found the car park and sorted the parking out with a seven day permit it was fine. However, the car parks are a bit of a walk away and up hill but this does keep you fit

  • "This is our second stay in this group of flats."

    It’s in a stunning location with fabulous views out to sea. The flat had good facilities and was spotlessly clean. It was good to have milk, tea and coffee there for us. The bed and sofa were comfortable. It was straightforward to unload the car very close to the flats and then move it to a long stay car park 10 or 15 minutes walk away. The only snag - and it was an issue for us - was that the wifi was often poor quality, particularly in the evening. It seems that this is shared with other flats as there was no router. There was a booster in the flat which we were able to reboot and this did help occasionally. On a very minor note, the filters on the cafetière were loose and could not be tightened - so unusable.

    We're pleased to welcome you back! Thank you for the feedback about the cafetiere - we will look into this. The owner recently provided the WIFI extenders as a means of helping with the signal within the apartment. Unfortunately WIFI can not be guaranteed, and the number of users at a time can impact on the speed. We hope this didn't spoil your stay too much. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

    Beautiful location right on the ocean. We also enjoyed our fist dinner at Tom’s. Thanks for being so accessible, as I prepared for our holiday! All the best, Margaret Keller

    Unfortunately the windows are not air tight in the lounge and kitchen so very drafty. Shower unit needs some attention as the sealant is dirty. There is still an area in the lounge by the window that needs painting. Starfish is a lovely apartment with beautiful views, we will hopefully return next year

The property

Boasting panoramic sea views, Starfish is an impressive second-floor apartment situated in a highly sought after area of Lyme Regis in Dorset.

The ideal location for small families or couples travelling together, Starfish is the perfect base from which to explore the delights of Dorset.

On entering the apartment there is a beautifully light and airy open-plan living space where light floods in and the views over the sea from the expansive windows are nothing short of spectacular.

The sitting area is particularly inviting with ample seating and a feature window seat positioned in front of those all-important views.

The small but perfectly formed kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to create some delicious cuisine for your family and even has an attractive breakfast bar and stool, a great spot for chilling out and keeping the designated chef company.

Once your meal has been prepared, step into the elegant dining area which is all laid out ready for you to enjoy long, lingering meals together and really get into the holiday vibe.

As the sun sets and night falls, take your pick from either of the two well-appointed bedrooms; a king-size which comes complete with a TV or a stylish twin.

In the morning you can hop into the contemporary shower room and enjoy an invigorating shower before heading out for a day of adventure.

Talking of adventures, there is no shortage of excitement to be had with Lyme Regis literally on the doorstep and its fantastic beach, harbour and causeway as well as a great selection of shops and amenities.

Lace up your walking boots for some fantastic walks along the 630 mile South West Coastal Path or jump in the car for a wealth of attractions for the whole family to enjoy including Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, Seaton Tramway, Beer Quarry Caves, Forde Abbey and Gardens and Pecorama.

Dorset is all about the beaches so make sure you don’t miss Charmouth, West Bay, Chesil and Lulworth Cove.

For a holiday to remember, Starfish is waiting for you.
