Private caravan hire owner | Denise | Chesil Beach Holiday Park | Weymouth

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.

This caravan was perfect and is the best equipped caravan I have ever stayed in. Clean and decorated in homely furnishings. Lots of information provided for things to do in Weymouth and the wider area. Toys and games for young and old is a great added extra for when you want some family in the caravan. It has some lovely views of Chesil and Portland. And for a family that love this area I would certainly recommend this caravan to everyone.

Thank you Adam for your lovely review and for taking such lovely care of our holiday home. I am very glad you liked the extra touches and I thought of my own grandchildren when I planned the extras such as toys, DVDs, games and Netflix package and thought it would be a nice addition for families to have some extra entertainment in the caravan if they did not wish to go up to the Venue. You would be most welcome to book again Dee

Date of stay - 13 Aug 2021 - 27 Aug 2021

We have stayed with Dee and Derek before and returned for a 2-week break in August. On arrival, the caravan was beautifully presented and extremely clean. After a long drive down, it was great to have a welcome pack waiting that allowed us to put the kettle on for a much-needed coffee before we went shopping. The caravan has many extras you would not find in a park rented van, giving it that homely feel. The position of the van is excellent, with views of Chesil Beach and Portland harbour, which makes for a relaxing afternoon on the veranda. A stay with Dee and Derek will be a happy, relaxing stay, and we will be back in the future I’m sure.

Thanks for the lovely comments Sheila, you and your family have been exemplary guests and you are welcome to stay in our caravan anytime.

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.
