About the owner

Hi, I'm Dee and with my husband Derek we own Dee and Derek's Chesil Vista Retreat, a lovely 2 bedroom caravan we purchased so that we can spend holidays with our grandchildren Ellie and Duncan who absolutely love Chesil Vista Holiday Park and the nearby beach. When we are not using our caravan we have decided to make available any vacant periods for private rental at competitive rates. We have tried to make the caravan as homely and welcoming as possible with a range of board games, dvd's and toys so you and your family can have an enjoyable holiday no matter what the weather is like. We also provide you with bed linen free of charge so that you do not need to take up space in your luggage and a range of cleaning products, hand wash and toilet tissue for guest use. On arrival you will find a welcome pack with teabags, sugar, coffee and hot chocolate and you will find a small range of condiments and cooking oil in the cupboard.

From the moment we arrived at the caravan it was like home from home and had everything you could ever need. All the little extras were fantastic and really appreciate. The location of the caravan is great and close to all amenities with a small beach just a short walk away that is great for small children as well as water sports like paddleboarding. Will definitely book in the future as we all enjoyed our holiday.

Thank you Samantha and family for such a lovely review and most important thank you for respecting and looking after our caravan , it has been a pleasure to communicate with you and you and your family will be most welcome to stay in our holiday home again .
