  • "‘Ocean Retreat’ is a beautiful property in a convenient position with stunning views of Weymouth Bay."

    It was comfortable and cosy and a pleasure to return to after exploring the local area. It was well equipped, had plenty of storage, and the‘welcome pack’ was also a lovely touch! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

  • "A perfect gem."

    We really enjoyed our stay everything has been thought about. The view is amazing and the lovely terrace helps to make the most of the position of the apartment. The hamper and milk left for us was an extra thoughtful touch which we didn't expect so thank you for that. It was so peaceful and restful. But nice to be able to watch the world go by on the promenade through the lovely big windows in the lounge.

    Made all the more special by this lovely apartment. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay, Ocean Retreat is finished to a very high standard and furnished beautifully too. The views were fabulous, the balcony was also a added bonus. The welcome box was much appreciated too! A wonderful Weymouth holiday... Perfect!

    It was beautifully furnished and everything we needed (kitchen equipment etc) was of high quality. We will definitely be returning again. The view over the bay was gorgeous and the terrace was a lovely place to eat breakfast and take in the scenery. It was a very memorable week.

  • "This was a well equipped apartment with beautiful sea views."

    We had our own dedicated parking space so parking was never a problem. It was a flat and easy 10 minute walk into the central shopping and dining area of town. It felt very secure and very relaxing. Can highly recommend as a comfortable and warm rental to stay in Weymouth.

  • "We really enjoyed the 'cottage' in Weymouth; the view is delightful and the accommodation very well appointed."

    2 small complaints - the first is the fact that there was dog excrement on the parking area near the door to our 'cottage''... - the second is that we needed more towels - just small ones as they also used as 'hair drying' towels... Otherwise, thanks you... Regards, Audrey

  • "Ocean Retreat is a spacious and comfortable flat, made extra special by the fabulous sea views."

    I think its the quieter end of town but there was always something to watch at sea and on the beach. The sound of waves on the shingle was very soothing. We were able to watch the New Years fireworks from the balcony. The kitchen is well equipped, with a useful welcome hamper. Thankyou Zac and Liesl for the New Year gift!

    ! Beautifully furnished and equipped with a lovely welcome pack on arrival, thank you. The views were absolutely stunning and we were blessed with gorgeous weather. Perfectly positioned for walks along the beach, close to town for shops and restaurants and a bus stop on the door step. We shall definitely be returning.

  • "What a stunning property!"

    Beautifully decorated and in a fantastic location. The commanding views from the living room were truly spectacular, one could spend hours watching the boats and kite surfers. The balcony was an added bonus although sadly the weather turned the week we were there and after a 3 month drought we had thunderstorms nearly every night. Even these were spectacular to watch from the apartment. The kitchen was well equipped, the bathroom is fabulous - the size of that shower is great for someone like me (6'6" tall) The bed was extremely comfortable (please tell me the make..I want one!) The only downside were the pillows which were like a ships biscuit - flat and hard! I really hope that this apartment is available next time we are down. Highly recommended

    Just a quick note from the owners to say thank you for the feedback and to say have replaced the pillows now. Property Owner

    The property provides everything you need for your stay, it is decorated in a lovely way, very clean and stylish. We arrived during the heatwave and the only thing I would mention for such conditions is that a retractable shade or a small parasol would be welcomed on the deck area. Thanks for a great stay.

    Very clean, everything you need and a great location. My only complaint would be the check in and out times. Considering how much we paid for a 2 nights stay, we technically only had just over a day in the property. We didn’t consider it good value for money.

    Everything has been so well thought out and beautifully done. I used to craft in glass and really appreciated the Jo Downs! But all the other art so well done from the agate slices to the art on the lounge and bedroom walls. Wondered if any of it was done by the owners? Very well equipped and the terrace is a lovely place to sit, as is the view from the lounge. Also in a good location. We have booked two more weeks and will probably book a third one. Absolutely ideal for us. Thank you.

  • "Really wonderful apartment with amazing views."

    Loved just sitting on the sofa (or outside on the deck) and watching the sea. Very relaxing. The apartment is very well equipped and the kitchen, although small, contains everything you need except maybe cupboard space for your own groceries (but can just move things around to create space). One tip - if you plan on cooking on a daily basis bring dishwasher tablets as only 2 were provided. I really enjoyed my stay here and happy to give it a thorough recommendation.

  • "The wow factor as you first walk into the living room and out onto the balcony with the most amazing view over Weymouth Bay, and the sound of the waves lapping on the beach below cannot be beaten."

    The apartment has everything you can think of and more, and is so beautifully decorated. Everything has been thought of - the chair and footstool in the living room by the sash windows give the best views if the weather is not so good, and the balcony is perfect for sunbathing or just sitting and watching the world go by - if you are up early enough the sunrise is spectacular. The beach is a 2 minute walk and was never crowded. We barely used the car - a lovely walk into Weymouth along the prom and to Bowleaze cove the other way - the lookout café on the way to Bowleaze does amazing breakfasts and cake. A huge thank you to Kirsty who helped when one of the windows had stuck open - you are an absolute star!! It was our first child free holiday - we will definitely stay there again.

  • "This is an excellent apartment, only recently beautifully furnished in modern style."

    Extremely good location to the Promenade and the Beach, and to walk in to Weymouth itself. High speed wifi. Very comfortable bed. Balcony ideal for the morning sun and having breakfast there. Suggestions to improve: A Fan in the bedroom for cooling as due to the bedroom location at the front on ground level it is only practical to open the window a small distance. The television system and the remote control in the lounge is very slow and only limited channels.

Boasting breath-taking views across the sandy shores and crystal-clear waters of the shingle beach, this tastefully decorated abode is sure to add a touch of luxury to your next escape to Dorset.

The king size bedroom offers a tranquil haven for you to sleep well and feel refreshed for the next day’s adventure, and the chic bathroom has a large walk-in shower, double sink and WC.

The screened balcony is a wonderful additional where you can sit with your morning cup of tea or coffee, before heading out to discover the delights of Weymouth, or once the sun has set, you sit here with a blanket and glass of wine in hand and watch the pretty twinkling lights of the esplanade light up the coast.

The town centre of Weymouth has many things to see and do.

Take a wander along the old historic harbour which leads you past many cafes and coffee shops where you can treat yourself to an ice cream or Dorset Cream Tea.

Why not take a picnic up to the Nothe Gardens and sit and watch the local wildlife such as birds and squirrels roam the glorious grassed areas, where you will also discover Newtons Cove, with its shallow waters and rock pools, great for fossil hunting, and not forgetting the stunning panoramic views around to Portland Harbour and beyond.

Spot exotic sea creatures in SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth or explore the cliffside remains of Sandsfoot Castle, best known for its well-kept gardens and spectacular sea views.

See magnificent sand sculptures at Northe Fort, or head inland to for a fun-filled day with the Jurassic Safari.
