aboutus2Taking The Strain

The holiday rental market is highly competitive. Offering an efficient service seven days a week is the key to success. We are proud of our professional service, the position of our online presence and are confident that we compare favourably in all areas with our competitors.

Call us and investigate our property and local knowledge, we are sure that we will pass the test.

To safeguard your property we make sure that we speak to every guest during the booking process and before taking payment. This is to make sure that the property is suitable for the party make up. Our geographically narrow focus within the county and our three local offices create the necessary support network for owners, housekeepers and guests. This care and attention produces happy guests and contributes to great feedback for our properties and for us with an exceptional satisfaction rating on Feefo.com. Over the years we have invested heavily in our IT, booking and phone systems and we continue to do so to remain at the forefront of technology in our industry.

Home Sweet Home

We love traditional cottages with open fires and big gardens, but we also love high specification modern apartments with jaw-dropping sea views. What matters most is quality; we require a minimum 3 star quality standard as that is what our guests’ expect.
Our requirements are fairly broad in scope and we will be honest with you from the outset about your property. We only accept homes that are within 10 miles of the coast and that are either in rural villages or the seaside towns of Swanage, Weymouth, West Bay and Lyme Regis.

Our mantra is:


Our aim is to surprise and delight our guests with a ‘home from home’ feel with all mod cons, enhanced with those personal touches that make your property compete and excel over their own home. Added extras that improve a holiday, particularly when it rains, are always encouraged. Consider wifi, games consoles, film streaming services and traditional board games.
