  • "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.

  • "A very comfortable cottage with a five minute walk to the sea in one direction and a five minute walk in the other direction to local shops."

    The only complaint was that the curtains and blinds were too thin and the glorious Weymouth sunshine woke us up at 5 am.

  • "The house was amazing, thank you."

    Everything we wanted & more. Clean & beautifully presented, we loved the special little themed touches too. Very comfortable & well equipped, a home from home. A great place to be based for so many places to visit & so close to Weymouth sea front. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

  • "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.

  • "The cottage was lovely and the fact you have your own off road parking space right outside your front door is great."

    A few minutes walk to the beach and in a nice quiet area, so no late night noise. Secure garden for the dog as well. Would definitely recommend.

  • "The location of the property was perfect for us, within walking distance of everything we needed so the car didn’t have to move."

    . I think maybe the property itself could do with some tlc. Although beautiful on first appearances we did hit some problems along the way. And the building works front and rear from 8am were a little annoying.

  • "Marina's rest is a fantastic place to stay, we have stayed twice now and loved both times."

    The house is lovely, spotlessly clean and has everything you need and being only a 5-10minute walk from the beach makes it even better. We would definately return.

  • "It might be an idea to let people know that there is a big building project going on opposite the front of the property, the noise started at around 8a."

    M and woke us most mornings. They had excavators and diggers and was generally quite noisy, luckily we went out for a fair portion of the day, but missed having holiday lie ins. The property is fantastic, clean, well equipped and garden is a real sun trap, we loved the location as well.

  • "2nd time at Mariners Rest and it did not disappoint."

    This is a beautiful, comfortable home within 10 minutes walk from seafront. It has a fully enclosed garden for your dog and there is a newsagent, fish and chip shop etc within easy walking distance. I would happily stay here again. The house was immaculate. There was some building work adjacent to the property but this was not a problem and we had been told about it beforehand.

  • "We found the second bedroom very cramped and uncomfortable."

    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.

  • "We both really enjoyed staying at Mariners rest."

    The kitchen was so well equipped we could have been at home. We will definitely be staying here again. One small addition we would like to see. That is a handle on the wall at the end of the bath as my wife felt there was nothing to hold onto when getting out of bath/ shower

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.
