Perfect location by the sea. However, located on a steep hill is not ideal for everyone. It is walking distance from shops and the sea front. Decor is dated rather than quirky, in my opinion. But great value for money for a seaside holiday. :)

Hello Kate. Thank you for your Review. I have made a point of your suggestions. I would like to comment though on "Decor is dated rather then quirky". I did not describe the decor as quirky but a fusion of vintage and contemporary. Therefore the vintage will never be replaced by modern. You saw the pictures before you came so that should have given you an idea! Yes it all is a matter of personal taste and the cottage is my personal taste! Once again thank you for your Review Kate as it is important for hosts to know what has gone wrong and they would have no idea if one of the guests does not point these things out. Finally any holiday cottage I know has a check in from 3 p.m. The guests before you don't leave till 10 a.m. that day and we need time to turn the cottage around. I have had guests ask me if they could arrive earlier and I say yes if no one had stayed the night before.

This was our base camp for the Weymouth 70.3 Ironman. Was just what we wanted and a decent powerful shower to help with those aches and pains. Would definitely recommend. Comfy beds and clean.

How very kind Ann. A lovely Review. It's always difficult to leave a Review for people staying at the cottage on Portland as I never get to meet them. I was not able to go today when you left as I have broken a bone in my foot so the cleaner reported back to me and she said all was perfect. I Do thank you and I'm pleased you enjoyed your time on Portland. Susan

Thank you for your Review Derry. I have taken notice of the areas you mentioned. I had no idea the cleaner left the grill pan in that state. Strangely enough I have not been happy with her for some time and it does seem like a coincidence but today I have employed a new cleaner. I don't understand the carpet though as it was professionally cleaned six weeks ago. I will keep an eye on it though. It should take four hours to clean the cottage but it took her two and a half but was paid for four. Your Review came just at the right time. Thank you Susan

We enjoyed our time at Casita del Mar in Portland. A really interesting corner of the world- Chesil Beach is amazing! My kids loved the pebbles and a hike to the Olympic Rings. Susan was a lovely host. We had some trouble with the television and she promptly came and replaced it…
