“Perfect retreat!”

Spent three nights here at the beginning of August and wished it could have been longer. Immaculate property with everything you could wish for. Very peaceful and although attached to owners house, it was completely self contained including own drive and suntrap courtyard garden. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend; we have done a lot of self catering over the years and this is without doubt one of the best rentals ever. Congratulations to the owners!

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Superb accommodation, fully equipped, really could find no fault. May well return. Mersea Island is largely unspoilt, ideal if you want a quieter holiday.

This is an excellent apartment,beautifully designed and decorated. It had everything you could need for a self catering holiday. We only stayed for two nights so didn't need to use the washing machine and we didn't cook, but you could if you needed to. Lovely little outside courtyard to relax in the sun. The bed was very comfortable and the area very quiet at night. We had a very restful time and would recommend it to other couples.

“Quiet, clean, tidy....perfect”

The apartment was easy to find and sits in a perfectly manicured front garden, with its own separate drive. We had quite a long drive to get there so it was nice to find tea, coffee, fresh milk and biscuits when we arrived. We met Sue on the second day and she was very welcoming, lovely and friendly.
Oakleaves is on a very quiet road a few hundred yards from the sea and we could walk at a very leisurely pace to the shops and to the many pubs and restaurants in West Mersea in under half an hour.
It is very clean and felt new. It is surprisingly spacious with a full kitchen, decent sized lounge area and a huge bed. The sunny little outside patio was an unexpected bonus in which to enjoy breakfast in the morning sunshine.
Overall, Oakleaves was the perfect place to stay and explore this part of Essex. I can't think of anything we lacked!

the pictures do not show the quality of this accommodation in a quiet road near the beach. it is ideally located for walking around the island or visits to Abberton reservoir and 6miles from the historic town of Colchester

“Comfortable, clean accomodation with lots of nice touches”

Prior to arrival the contact I had with the owner was very helpful. We never met but she made sure that a friend was available during our weekend stay. On arrival we were really happy with the accomodation. It was stylish, clean and well fitted out with everything that you might want. The size was perfect for two people with a bedroom, ensuite bathroom, kitchen/dining/living room and a little outside space with table and chairs. There were lots of thoughtful extras that we really appreciated. There was a designated parking space on the drive at the front of the house. The location was on a very quiet, pleasant residential street. We liked everything about the place and would not hesitate to recommend it.
