“Everything you could possibly want, generous”
Reviewed December 26, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

West Mersea feels a little like the Camargue, understated, spare. Oakleaves has every comfort, including a generous litre of fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. The flat is recently modernised, well insulated, warm, double glazed, very quiet, spotlessly clean, has a well appointed kitchen, even a washing machine, is comfortably furnished, with good shower, small private garden and own driveway parking. There is great attention to detail: umbrellas, aprons, generous supplies of toilet paper and so on. Improvement points: bath sheets would be nice (the bath towels are too small) and a second light for reading on the window side of the sofa would help. Sue and Colin have made a special home.

I have just returned from a two-night stay at Oakleaves with my mother and 18 month old son. What a wonderful accommodation! It is beautifully put together, in a quiet road not far from amenities, has everything you could possibly think of and lovely comfy beds! The secure courtyard garden was a lovely sun trap and fully enjoyed by my son and his digger. The owners even went out of their way to provide a small table and chair for him and some little treats in a bowl on arrival. They really have thought of everything. I cannot recommend this property highly enough if you would like a stay (long or short) in Mersea Island. Thank you.
