|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
The apartment commands a fantastic view overlooking Weymouth Bay and you just have to cross the road, to be on the beach. The beach is one of the best in the country and is levelled out and cleaned every day, throughout the summer, by tractor/ground staff from the local council.
The bathroom has recently been re-fitted and the rest of the flat has been re-decorated and new sofa beds/chairs added.
Utility costs / linen / towels etc. included in rental cost.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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!
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!
