  • "Quite a few stains on the carpets."

    Shower very mouldy. We would not rebook.

  • "This is our 2nd visit to Mariner’s Rest and it was as clean and comfortable as the 1st time."

    Bonus you can walk to the sea front from the accommodation. I would recommend this holiday accommodation if you wanted to visit beautiful Weymouth.

  • "Excellent property clean and well equipped."

    Quiet neighborhood and only 10 minutes to beach and town.Couldn,t fault it. Only slight problem could be that it shares refuse bin with next door property and if a family of four were renting it could get overfull ,there was only 2 of us but we had a job to get our weeks refuse in.

  • "Very clean and good location."

    We would like to come back again. Thank you. P.S. There is no dishwasher. But there were 2 bits of dishwasher detergent in the kitchen. Therefore I thought there was a dishwasher, so I looked it for.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return."

    However, the bathroom shower /bath needs a good scrub (I had to do this myself, before we could use it) Also, We booked because it was dog friendly, but when we cleaned the carpets on departure alot of the dog hair that was not from from our dog so the property could benefit from a stronger vacuum cleaner.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Mariners Rest."

    The house was well equipped with everything we needed, it was clean, a great location and I liked the little personal touches such as books,dvds & games etc. Loved that it was in walking distance to the beach. Local supermarkets were only 5 minutes away. It felt like a home from home.

  • "The cottage was clean and in a good location but lacking in a few amenities (toilet rolls, kitchen roll, cleaning products (eg bleach), condiments), yes these can be purchased by the occupants, but after staying in many cottages over the years, it’s the first time we have had to go out and get these items."

    The description is also incorrect, its states gas hob but it is electric. Only the small oven worked which made cooking difficult this needs to be repaired or replaced especially if a family of 4 were staying there. Suggest the cottage has a guest book so that guests can let others know what they found locally that could benefit them (good and bad). Despite all the above comments, we did enjoy our stay and would recommend to others, but the owners should take note accordingly.

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much."

    My only concern was that the garden light was on 24/7, and not "light sensitive" as stated. And we could not find a switch to turn it off. But it did not affect our enjoyment at all, it was just a waste of power for the owners.

  • "A really comfortable stay in a house that functioned just like a family home."

    This was by far the best equipped rental we've stayed in with absolutely everything you might need for a family. Large rooms, lovely outside space, which was very secure and perfect for our dog. Warm, well decorated and very clean. Fantastic location a 5 minute walk from the main beach with supermarkets very close by. We'll definitely book again. Just a few points for the owners to consider: - Would be great to have heavier curtains/blackout blinds. - An outside washing line would be useful. - We only had two toilet rolls provided for a family of four for a week, some spares would have been welcome.

  • "Lovely house, great location with parking and enclosed garden, close to beaches and shops."

    However let down by lack of cleanliness. My two year old granddaughter managed to find a tablet left on the floor and was about to put it in her mouth. Luckily I saw her pick it up and stopped her. This could have had dangerous consequences.

  • "The property was clean and quite comfortable (not a lover of leather sofas)."

    It was well situated and convenient for shops, large and small as the major supermarkets are all within a short distance. Walking was easy to Weymouth town and beach, even further if you wanted. A problem with the cloakroom light switch was fixed quickly. On the negative side the bath could benefit from grab rails we both found it difficult to get out having used the shower. A shower cubicle would be better. The tv is old with no internet access to access iPlayer etc. No DVDs so the DVD player is useless. All in all we enjoyed our week and the weather was kind.

  • "We enjoyed our time at Mariners Rest."

    It was comfortable, quiet and bonus a parking place. We liked it so much we have booked it again for June 2023. It was also good to have an outside space to sit relax and enjoy the sun. An umbrella for the patio table would be a good idea so you had some shade when the temperature rises to hot,hot, hot. Weymouth is a lovely seaside resort and we were only 10 minutes away from the beach.

  • "Lovely house in a great location."

    The house was super clean and had some lovely touches like the bottle of fizz and the Christmas tree and decorations. The only thing letting it down was the garage conversion that is halfway finished. Lots of rubble outside, that whilst didn't spoil our stay it was a little bit of surprise as we pulled up, to the point we weren't sure it was the right house. Also, not sure if we could park in front of the garage. If we had known prior to arrival it would have helped. Would definitely return.

    It would have been better to describe this as a single bedroom only and to have opened the second front bedroom. Either rent the whole house out or state the house is for 3 only and remove the second bed from the small bedroom. One of the lamps in this room had no bulb. I looked for a spare in the cupboard under the stairs but there wasn't one. We only had one smallish car but felt parking would have been difficult if we had arrived in two separate cars.

The property

A thoughtfully presented light and airy holiday home just a short walk from famous, golden sandy beach of Weymouth.

The property has lovely touches of different art on the walls all around to make you feel at home.

The large welcoming sitting room opens out onto a patio garden with a table and chairs, perfect for enjoying the last of the summer sun.

The bright and airy kitchen is very well-equipped for you to make delicious breakfast to kick start the day or evening meal to enjoy with family or friends at the nearby dining table or even outside in the garden for an alfresco feeling. It has off road parking for two small or one large car and welcomes one dog. Mariner's Rest is located with many activities and days out, just a stroll away; Lodmoor Country Park has lovely walks a and a play park for children.

Adjacent is the acclaimed Sealife Adventure Park, home to all the wonderful life of sea creatures.

Walk to the beach and pick your perfect spot and take in the views of the bay which spans three miles.

One end of the beach you will find fine golden sand with traditional beach entertainments that include donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows whilst further along the beach it changes to pebbles and the beach becomes that little bit quieter.

The Georgian Esplanade has an elegant look and has a few al fresco cafes where you may take in the sea air and views whilst enjoying food.

For guests wanting to explore further afield out of Weymouth for the day, then why not journey westerly along the coast and enjoy the spectacular views of the Jurassic coastline, whilst stopping at the pretty villages which welcome visitors warmly with cosy tearooms and pubs.

A visit to Mariner's Rest offers a contemporary and stylish home form home feeling and is only a short walk from everything Weymouth has to offer to holidaymakers.

The glorious golden sandy beaches have excellent facilities for all kinds of watersports, whilst from the picturesque, bustling harbour you can take regular fishing trips. A short drive takes you to Portland Harbour, and the rugged “Isle” of Portland, linked to Weymouth by the dramatic Chesil Beach. Visit Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s “Casterbridge”, only 7 miles away, or take a journey along the scenic coastal road and call in at Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens.

Note - A new property has been built where the garage was Portside ref No 1093991

The main differences to the property will be:

2) The existing parking area in front of the garage will no longer be available. ( the garage will have been demolished to make way for the three story extension/ annex )
