This self contained flat was truly amazing, it had everything you could need for a holiday or short stay, umbrellas in case it rained,bags to carry shopping and even a portable barbecue. Susan and her husband were really welcoming and friendly as were all the residents in the area. We would have no hesitation in staying at Oakleaves again and and would highly recommend it. Thank you again Derek and Denise .

“An absolute gem”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Oakleaves is quite simply a gem of a place. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Sue made us feel very welcome and comfortable indeed. The apartment had literally everything we needed. The apartment is a short walk to the beach, and also a short drive into town and other areas of interest. We had a great time in Mersea Island and that was mainly down to our stay at Oakleaves. HIGHLY recommended; we'll definitely be back again.

This is a real gem of a condo, it has a perfect location on the Island and everything you can possibly want for a short stay or longer holiday is provided by the owners.

“Excellent accommodation in a really nice area”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was our first time at Oakleaves and I certainly hope not our last since it provided very comfortable holiday accommodation in a quiet neighbourhood which was handy for the beach, had many attractive walks and good restaurants close by. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was modern but small with a good shower. The living areas were comfortable and tastefully decorated and the small sun trap of a sitting out area very useful. Everything for your convenience down to the tide tables for crossing the causeway were provided. Sue was very helpful with any queries. The only downside was the fridge which it appeared could not be regulated to maintain a low temperature but perhaps this was due to the weather being so hot?

“THE perfect seaside holiday let”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Sue and her husband have certainly thought of everything within this accommodation, we (as usual) take everything including the kitchen sink! we needn't have bothered - this place was completely kitted out in every way! It looked like a brand new apartment - it was immaculate, very clean and spacious with a lovely courtyard garden which we made the most of each evening - we even had a little barbecue out there too. We would totally recommend Oakleaves to all of our friends, family and YOU - Perfect.
