About Samantha Wilson

We took over these premises around Xmas 2014 and have refurbished to a great standard. We reside in the top flat, as we also run the cafe, which is on the ground floor of the premises, so we are always on hand, if you require assistance. We moved from London as we were looking for a change of lifestyle and to set up our own business, after working in Local Goverment for many years.

Samantha Wilson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Samantha Wilson chose Weymouth and Portland

We had been visiting Weymouth on numerous occasions and fell in love with the local area/people. The views are exceptional and you have everything you need here, fresh air, great walks and scenery, also the shop outlets, rival any major London town.

What makes this apartment unique

The main feature is the large bay window, overlooking the bay. All of the buildings along the Esplanade are listed buildings, with the whole town , being mainly made up of the original old fishing port buildings.

The view is fantastic and sitting on the sofa at night overlooking the sea and lights was lovely.

Charming flat on the beach in Weymouth

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous views from the sitting room. Nice, bright, clean spacious flat. Good location. Weymouth is a beautiful place. A bit noisy one night when the pub emptied. George was a wonderful host.

Not worth the money!

  • 1 of 5

We had a very disappointing stay at this property, only wished we had taken photos and complained sooner as we would have liked a refund. The first thing we noticed on entering the property was the awful smell of old cooking oil which seemed to have permiated throughout the appartment. The bedroom also smelled but this was a damp musty smell, we tried to get some fresh air in here but the windows had been painted closed. We mentioned this to George who also couldn't open them, he suggested opening the fire door which we didn't think was a good idea. Also there were men working behind this door for most of our stay and opening it would have meant even more noise and dust.

The apartment was generally grubby and 'tired' looking. No attention to detail had been made during the cleaning. There were still crumbs on the kitchen worktops especially in the corners and a dirty smelly cloth had been left on the sink. The fridge needed a thorough clean before we could put our food into it and the oven was so dirty that when we first switched it on the smoke alarm was set off as the oven began to burn all the mess that hadn't been cleaned off. Dust and debris was found under furniture, obviously nothing had been moved whilst cleaning and there were lightbulbs out in every room. We mentioned that we wanted them replacing but they were still all out on the day we left. Samantha and George were very nice people but just didn't have the high standards that we were expecting. The other thing to mention is that the apartment is extremely noisy, we knew it was on the sea front but didn't expect the noise from clubs and pubs still turning people out into the early hours. A few nights the noise went on past 5 am, this included the night before my husband was due to race in an Ironman event which is why we booked our stay. It should be made very clear on the website that this is an extremely noisy apartment. Samantha and George actually told us that they had moved away because of the noise. We certainly wouldn't recommend this property and would actually go out of our way to discourage people to go. It reflects badly on Home Away as it was not honestly described. Regards Beverley and Alan Beavers

Owner's Response: We are honestly amazed at this review, as at no time were we made aware of their remorse, at staying here. This apartment has been fully booked since May and apart from a few issues, which have always been dealt with instantly, all of our tenants, have enjoyed their stay and even re-booked in 2017. The husband was competing in the “Ironman Event” and even brought their bicycles into the apartment, without seeking our permission to do so. If they had booked an apartment with the “High Standards”, that they were expecting, they would definitely not have been allowed to keep their bikes in there. The smell of cooking oil, is coming from a neighbouring establishment, of which we have no control over. There isn’t any damp in the building and many of the windows are permanently sealed, as they were, when we acquired the building. As this is a listed building, replacement costs, would be tens of thousands £’s. The noise from workmen, is out of our control, as they are working on the adjacent building, also the noise from the pubs clientele, are also not controllable by us. Most tenants appreciate that this is a “Holiday Resort”, catering for “Holiday Makers”, who sometimes like to go out at night and enjoy themselves. The apartment is in a prime location for the beach and all of the facilities, that come, with being at a seaside resort. These tenants were solely here for the Ironman event, wanting an apartment, a stone’s throw from the start line, so any nightlife, was never going to meet with their approval. The irony is, that the town was packed with people, watching the Ironman event and these were the same people, out enjoying themselves. There was an issue with some light bulbs, which were immediately replaced, also the smoke alarm was triggered by the tenants burning their toast. With regards to cleaning, we do move furniture etc. when cleaning and the apartment was fully cleaned prior to arrival. With regard to taking photos of the mess, everyone has phones with cameras, these days and I do not doubt that pictures would have been taken if issues existed. In response to our moving away, this was so that we could “let out” the other apartment. In closing, this is a holiday apartment and issues will arise from time to time, as we rely on the trust of tenants to keep the place clean and report any damage, unless we are made aware of issues, we cannot resolve them.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer stay here at this excellent, self catering apartment, a real home away from home! The owners Sam & George and manager Dan are very accommodating, nothing ever too much to ask them and always on hand if ever we need them. The apartment itself is spacious, well equipped with essentials for a home, fast wifi, towels, linen, and whatever you need that isn't there, the hosts would provide no problem. The location is absolutely perfect! Right opposite the beach so beautiful sea views and of the esplanade from our front room and the town centre is 30secs around the corner. The whole set up of the location, the apartment and hosts are why my son and I will continue to return. My son who is Autistic is very particular about places he goes to but he is absolutely comfortable and happy in this apartment setting. And the hosts are so lovely with him. We're able to enjoy the beach first thing before it gets busy and don't have far to return home which is very necessary for him as he can get very frustrated. Then he is so content just chilling and people watching from the front room window which is so relaxing for his ever changing moods. Although we are above a cafe, we hardly have any scents from the food cooked and although on a main road, the apartment is practically sound and scent proof when the windows are shut. My son and I sleep so well here. And I must recommend the cafe downstairs that the hosts run. Although I do buy food to cook for myself and son, I tend to eat from the cafe too as the food is absolutely delicious! And they kindly bring it up to the apartment so I can eat there as my son cannot handle sitting in restaurants.

We will be making a twice yearly trip from now on as would love to come back during the Easter school holidays too as I'm in no doubt that despite Easter not being the sunniest of times, we would be happy to come back whilst it's quiet because there is still so much to do in Weymouth off season. Thank you Sam and George and Dan for your continued fantastic customer care and for making our stay perfect, once again!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Weymouth, the flat couldn't have been closer to the beach. Sam and George were very friendly and helpful. Everything was provided in the flat, even down to tea bags and washing detergent. The shops were also only a couple of minutes walk away. The view from the bay windows was what sold it for me.

Being on the Esplanade, it was sometimes a bit noisy at night, but for us that was worth it for being so close to the beach. The back bedroom, where the double bed is, was quieter and our kids slept well there.

All in all, a great location for a classic beach holiday!
