Lovely clean apartment with fantastic views of marina. At the moment building work is being carried out on the underground car park and adjacent property. This tends to make the parking unsecure but there is minimal building noise

We loved having the water so close to us and it was a joy to be able to watch the world going about its business on boats of all shapes and sizes. There was always something to be looking at whether it be the big skies or the birds from the very comfortable surroundings of the apartment. Out and about, its a great area to walk in or use as a base tRead moreo see the Dedham Vale, Colchester and all the pretty Essex villages. Hide

This property really lived up to its billing. It's in a great location with wonderful views over the harbour and within walking distance of the pub. It's a very welcoming property - the owners provide bath robes, White company toiletries and a welcome bag with wine and biscuits - they even made sure there were ice cubes in the freezer - all nice anRead mored thoughtful touches. We were blessed with the weather and enjoyed drinks on the very large balcony watching the sun go down - bliss! Hide

Didn't want to leave the wonderful views from the apartment. Definite wow! Factor. The apartment is tastefully decorated with light colours. We were lucky to have a really warm day so chilled out on the balcony, bliss! We cannot wait to go back.

Fabulous location and views over the water. Lots to watch, with boats coming and going all the time. Pubs and take-aways within walking distance, and a good-sized Co-Op close by (not to be mistaken for the convenience Co-Op just up the road).

Stunning views, stunning setting, stunning apartment. Perched right on the edge of the Marina with a superb ourside terrace, this must be one of the best coastal accomodations in the country. This is our second visit and hopefully will make this an annual event.
