“Waterfront retreat is lovely”
Reviewed 27 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

waterfront retreat is lovely. Everything to the highest standard with lots of personal touches that make it more special. Louise and Sam very friendly and helpful but give you space and privacy so never intrusive. The location is excellent, just a ten minute stroll along the waters edge or the coastal road into town. Would definitely use again if back in Yarmouth.

“The best retreat in the island”
Reviewed 31 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We loved every aspect of the beautifully made Waterfront Retreat. You can tell it has been well designed and prepared to make the guests enjoy and feel like its home. It is absolutely the perfect place to stay in the north west of the island with family of four. The master bedroom is fantastic. Louise is a very kind and thoughtful host who looked after us with nice welcome and advice to ensure we have the maximum comfort during our stay. We would definitely stay there again if we visited the island in the future.

“Stunning characterful seaside retreat”
Reviewed 28 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Beautifully decorated and furnished house, with everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday. Full of nice touches and character, very comfortable beds, fabulous wet room/ shower, all perfectly located by the beach, a pleasant ten minute stroll from Yarmouth. The owner is lovely and welcoming, but also gave us our own space - she was also very helpful and accommodating, going out of her way to dig out of her garage a DVD player for us when we realised the one in the house had recently broken (she had ordered a new one but it hadn't arrived yet). I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the island.

“Beautiful place in a lovely location”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My husband and I stayed at the Waterfront Retreat for 4 nights. The annex was beautifully decorated in a beach house style and it was well equipped with everything we needed and more. The underfloor heating and strong shower was particularly appreciated after a day of hiking along the coastal path.

The location is very convenient - just a minute walk to the coastal path (you can see the sea from the bedroom) and a 5 minute walk to Yarmouth where there are some nice pubs,restaurants and shops.

We would highly recommend this place. Thank you Louise and Sam for a wonderful stay.
