“I would love to go back with my dogs again”
Reviewed 22 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

In October my husband and I stayed at St Elmo with our 3 dogs, we absolutely loved it, very dog friendly and house spotlessly clean and tidy. lovely large accommodation with fully equipped kitchen, enclosed and fully safe clean back garden for the dogs and would suit young children.Owner provided dog water bowl, towels and poo bags, very much appreciated. House walking distance to local park, beach and all shops and cafes, we didn't not go in the car for the week except to Cudmore country park. The local beach is fantastic and very dog friendly, also all the local people are polite, very friendly and love dogs. I have never been to Mersea Island previously and I live in Essex, I can not recommend the Island or this accommodation enough.

I did look to book for another week in 2017 but unfortunately the dates we would like are all fully booked. Maybe 2018.

“Lovely, big house!”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed here with my mother for a week. Spacious and clean, very comfortable house.
Very convenient location in West Mersea, near shops and the Coast Road.
I used to walk there in the evenings watch the sun set against the boats. Beautiful.
Definitely recommend staying in St. Elmo.

We are so glad you still enjoyed your holiday even though the weather was not good. We always welcome dogs as Mersea is lucky to have the Cudmore Country Park and a dog-friendly beach.

“Excellent place”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a great time at St Elmo. It is a very comfortable house with good sized rooms, 5 minutes walk from the sea and round the corner from local shops and a supermarket. The only down side was the very thin curtains in the double and twin bedrooms, which don't seem to have any light blocking properties!
We would happily stay there again, but will bring a blackout blind!

It is nice to know that you enjoyed your stay in St Elmo and hope that you will be back. After the new curtains were hung we did wonder if the sun would be a problem, but as the house is fully booked for some weeks it has been difficult to have blinds fitted. We will be doing this in the near future. Thanks for your input.
