A modern property where everything works

  • 4 of 5

This property is a very easy base for Portland. It was very clean, everything worked and we found the beds comfortable. The neighbours seemed friendly and, when we had a problem with our car, were very helpful. The house is painted white throughout, which for us made it feel a bit impersonal - a few pictures on the walls would be nice.

We didn't know the area well, and for us, Portland wasn't really the best base for what we wanted to do. Although we enjoyed visiting Tout quarry and the sculptures and the museum in Easton, plus walks around the Isle, a mainland base would have suited us better - I would think though that this would be an excellent place though for anyone involved in any of the local water sports that we saw people enjoying.

Modern, comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Stones Throw. It has all the mod cons is well located to explore the area and is just the ticket for a holiday home being light and airy, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Melissa seems to have thought of everything you could need for a short stay.

We wish all holiday homes were as good as this. Highly recommended!

First class house in great location

  • 5 of 5

What a great house!!

Ideal location for us as we were paddleboarding most days. 1 Minute from Billy Winters on Chesil Beach which is great for the kids to paddleboard safely all day long.

The house has everything you need. We decided against taking our dog due to the hot weather but it would have been great.

Don't hesitate in booking here. A really gem.

Lovely house with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here. The house is great and had everything we needed and it stayed fairly cool inside despite the hot weather! The walk into Weymouth is lovely although a bit longer than anticipated! The frequent bus service brought us back and stops nearby the house. The Sealife Centre was great. This house is a great based for exploring Weymouth and Portland and there are some lovely pubs and an excellent chip shop within a few minutes walk.

The property is spotless and of a high standard.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a good location for dog walking and has many dog friendly pubs. It had all equipment you need eg. Hairdryer, iron,vacuum, washing machine etc. The bottle of wine and cake was a nice touch and all the condiments, tea, coffee , milk etc. The property is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The only slight downside is in the day , in the week there is noise from the skip company which is just the other side of a high fence. Overall a lovely stay!
