About Mike Hodge and Julia Potts
Mike and Julia live in Farnham, Surrey and just love the Dorset seaside. We're both professionals, but try to escape to Portland as often as possible, where we can relax and enjoy the fabulous Dorset coastline and countryside
Mike Hodge and Julia Potts purchased this House in 2013
Why Mike Hodge and Julia Potts chose Portland
We happened upon Seahaven when visiting friends in Portland and fell in love with it's contemporary design and spacious open plan living. It has a wonderful south facing garden which is fully enclosed and gives a good level of privacy and security. The fact that is is so close to the beach and local marina sealed it for us...and we finally got the keys to our brand spanking new house in October 2013
What makes this House unique
Seashaven is a very spacious and modern home , offering four genuinely double bedrooms over two floors. It sits in a lovely quiet square with sea views out towards Weymouth and beyond

Great place in 2012 Olympic village. Highly recommend. Mike (owner) very helpful and easy to deal with.
A stylish property equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay
We had such a lovely time staying at Seahaven, you have created a wonderful home away from home. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy family time together. We hope to return again one day!
A wonderful place to stay at any time of year
Seahaven was the perfect base for a long weekend during February half term. The house was large, warm and extremely comfortable. Every room was clean and tastefully decorated and we really liked knowing that the Danish sailing team had stayed in the house during the 2012 Olympics!
The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need - it really was a pleasure rather than a chore to cook in such a lovely kitchen.
In the summer, I can imagine the garden being a real sun trap and a great place to enjoy a BBQ.
The free wi-fi and a great selection of board games, jigsaws, DVDs and books made this house a really good choice for families - particularly in the winter.
The location of Seahaven was ideal - Chesil beach was just a few minutes walk away and was spectacular. We also enjoyed visiting nearby Portland Bill and Durdle Door.
All in all, this home from home made for a very relaxing break. The owners have supplied absolutely everything you might need during your stay and the house is an ideal base to explore Dorset.
Lovely house, really well situated! we stayed here to attend a wedding and the space is great and enough bathrooms for the amount of people staying.
Really clean with great decor. Parking thr car was really difficult and had neighbours knocking on the door every few days to aks if a car was ours but would definitely return
Thank you so much for your kind review. We are proud of Seahaven and particularly value its quiet and relaxed setting.
It is inevitable that large groups with multiple vehicles will have to give some thought to how they park. That is why we always give our visitors plenty of free parking options within 2/3 minutes of the house.
Amazing property, home from home.
What a wonderful home, the minute we walked through the door it felt comfortable and the attention to detail is great, you don't want for anything and the house is comfortable and cosy and decor beautiful, can't wait to return. The owners were brilliant to work with with any questions we had. Thank you Mike and Julia.
Fabulous home from home in a peaceful location
This property was the perfect base for our family holiday in the local area. Beaches within walking distance and Weymouth Beach a short 10minute drive away was beautiful and sandy for our 2 year old. Also 20 mins from Abbotsbury and it's attractions.
The house was well equipped with the essentials and all the home comforts you could hope for. The décor and facilities of an exceptional standard. We were particularly impressed with the provision of so many of the bulky items you need when travelling with a toddler - travel cot, change mat, high chair and booster and plastic bowls, plates and cutlery. The property's location was on a quiet estate with views up over Portland and out of one bedroom you could see the sea!
The owners were incredibly helpful at offering tips and advice on local amenities.
All in all a lovely relaxing family break with extended family and one we hope to repeat next year as we all enjoyed it so much.
Spectacular Chesil beach is 5 minutes away on foot. A small sandy beach, very popular with local families, can be found next to the Castle facing the inner harbour, which is at most a 10 minute walk. A few yards further on can be found a beautiful marina, with shops and restaurants.
Portland Bill, with its famous lighthouse and Bird watching station is about a 10 minute drive. Ever popular Weymouth and is 15 minutes away by car.
Fortuneswell is a ten minute walk away up a steep hill (not for the faint hearted) and has pubs, cafes, a newsagent, pharmacy, well equipped Co-op store and several fishing and antiques shops. Deeper into Portland is Easton, which is about a 5 minutes drive, where more shops and facilities can be found, together with a newly built and good sized Tesco store.
