  • "A lovely house full of character just a few minutes walk from the harbour and a great base to really unpack the treasures of Dorset and the Jurassic Coast."

    House is spacious, well equipped, has a lovely south facing garden (it’s a real sun trap), the WiFi is really fast, and dedicated parking is a real bonus too. (We got 2 large cars parked no problems). We did not actually use the car all week as we used the bus to go to Dorchester, Bridport, and Lulworth Cove / Durdle Door and there is also the train if you want to go further afield. Weymouth has lots to see and do and plenty of places to eat and drink. We did not have a bad meal all week. If we could recommend one lunch place it would be the Stone Pier Cafe and one evening meal place it would be the Red Lion. My only constructive feedback would be: barely any toilet roll or dishwasher tablets provided (we stayed for the week and the dishwasher was used everyday), no kitchen roll provided plus we could not find any oven gloves. Also, en-suite bathroom would massively benefit from the installation of an extractor fan. That said, these are just minor things and we absolutely loved our stay and would love to return. Highly recommended.

    Thank you so much for the excellent feedback. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate suggestions . We look forward to welcoming you back in the future . Property Owner

  • "We (three adults in three bedrooms with bathroom each) had a very enjoyable five night stay."

    We were exceptionally lucky with the weather and made good use of the very attractive south facing garden. As others have said, parking is a little tricky, due to parked cars all around and restricted parking space but OK for one medium sized vehicle. The property has a steep single flight staircase up to the bedrooms. Big plus it that it is only a short walk to the very centre of Weymouth, though the surroundings on that walk are not particularly attractive. Overall, we enjoyed our break very much.

    Thank you for your feed back. I trust you marking us down was not simply for the staircase. Its original and one wonders what you might expect in a cottage. As you indicate private parking in the area is some what of a premium but well parked the space can accomodated two vehicles in including a land rover discovery. As for the area this is the first review to have mentioned such. Never the less we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at Odysea."

    The house is beautiful, as is the secluded garden. We ate out in the evenings, but the kitchen is extremely well equipped so wouldn’t have had any problems cooking a meal. In fact, the whole house is well equipped and on the one day when it rained, we had fun with the various books and games dotted about the house. Just a minute from the bustling harbour with several pubs and restaurants and a few minutes from the high street with the usual retail shops and from Weymouth beach. Lots of great coastal walks nearby with spectacular scenery. Thank you Odysea.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and 100% score. Despite the unseasonal weather we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Odysea. You are very welcome to return next year. Appreciated. Property Owner

  • "Good house with loads of facilities."

    Plenty of space for 6 adults. Beautiful garden also. Our only real issue is that there are only 5 dining chairs for 6 people.

    We appreciate your positive comments and the 94% review. Nevertheless we are are sad to hear you failed to locate the sixth chair which is normally located on the landing or sometimes placed in a bedroom. Property Owner

    The house was lovely and had everything we needed especially the weather - the only small negatives were that the back gate didn't close properly and Alexa in the kitchen/living area didn't work but these did not alter the fact we had a great week - many thanks

    Thank you Simon for your 100% review. Any negatives particular repairs should be reported timely to Dream. That way we have a chance to rectify any concerns before the next guests. Happy Holidays :-) Property Owner

  • "Had a really enjoyable stay."

    Great location, really easy to walk into town. The garden was really beautiful to eat in when the sun was shining. The parking space at the back fitted our estate car diagonally or would fit 2 smaller cars normally. The house was really clean and very quiet. Would definitely recommend

  • "Great location in Weymouth although did find it quite noisy at night (partly due to be an old terraced house and I am guessing single glazed windows) however we had a very enjoyable stay."

    Lots to do around Weymouth area and further afield. House was very well equipped and although overall was clean we did feel some bits were a bit tired (some carpets and rugs for example). Marked slightly down on comfort as the matttess in the main bedroom (en suite room) was rather uncomfortable, it was far too soft for our liking. The mattress in the other double bedroom was much better.

    Thank you for this. It's always nice to receive feedback as we are keen to ensure all is top notch. We would comment that the cottage is double glazed throughout. If the front tilt and turn windows are not fully shut this can let some noise in. I assume you were unlucky with any noise as its been commented how quiet the area can be. Regarding the mattress unless they have been swapped the ensuite bed is a £1500 Harrison mattress and the other a £300 cash and carry type. It goes to show its not all about the money! But thank you, All is noted. Property Owner

  • "Could do with more small plates, dinner plates and small bowls to make best use of dishwasher."

    Mattresses a bit on soft side and a 10.5 tog quilt was unnecessary in full summer.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is very helpful to know these things. Out of interest were you aware that there was extra crockery in the bottom cupboard of the dresser? If not we will ensure future guests are made aware. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous property in a very good location near to beach and shops."

    Very comfortable stay and liked the layout of the house. Lovely well kept garden and found it very peaceful. Great to have a car parking space at the back of the house as the roads around are quite narrow and hard to get a space sometimes. Would definitely stay in the house again and would highly recommended it to others . Thanks :)

The property

This three-bedroom fully modernised holiday cottage named ODYSEA is located in the popular seaside town of Weymouth, part of the Jurassic coast of Dorset. Just minutes away from the sea, harbour and wide sandy beach, this mid-terrace home makes a fantastic base for both families and friends.

With two off-road parking spaces, three bathrooms and two receptions it is ideal for larger family groups.

The front door leads through to the traditionally tiled entrance hall with ground floor shower room, WC and basin. The front snug offers a cool peaceful spot to relax and unwind with a book or TV. Moving through the property, the open-plan living space serves as the central hub for entertaining with soft seating, kitchen and dining table. With southerly garden views this room is warm, light and airy.

The contemporary kitchen hosts everything you need for a self-catered stay, including an electric oven, microwave and induction hob.

Dishwasher and separate utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Outside is an enclosed walled garden, mature tropical shrubs, lawn and sunny seating area.

The rear gate leads to a 5 minute walk to the sea, Newton’s Cove and the Nothe Gardens. Upstairs to the first-floor; master bedroom with a stylish, fully equipped en-suite shower.

A second double and third twin-bed room.

Separate family bathroom; bath (shower over) WC and basin.

The cottage is ideally located just a short walk to Weymouth town, picturesque harbour and beach.

In fact, forget the car as the location is the envy of most with easy scenic walks, activities and numerous pubs and restaurants just a stone’s throw away. Slightly further afield, by car or the fantastic Jurassic coaster bus service has access to a wealth of popular destinations such as Swanage, Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and the Fleet, Abbotsbury and The Swannery, whilst moving onto the fossil hunter’s magnet of Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

Further inland, the famous Dorset hills and countryside with the Roman county town of Dorchester, iconic Shaftsbury and Cerne Abbas (Giant) to name but a few. For a fabulous location with much to see and do, choose ODYSEA.
