“A home away from home...only better”
Reviewed June 26, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Coming from a metropolitan city, this quaint little cottage-like house is like our home away from home...only better.

We had 3 kids & 3 adults in our group and the house is spacious enough for everyone to have their own privacy & space. We even treated 1 spare bedroom as a "playroom" for the girls.

The kitchen is very very well-equipped & the beds are very comfortable. Even toiletries are provided for.

Great location as it is within walking distance to restaurant, shops, cafe etc. The newly-opened Sainsbury Local was just a short drive away. We did most of our shopping there as it was the largest grocery store nearby,

We were driving a 9-seater & was initially worried about parking along the street. Luckily, the owner provided ample parking space just outside his garage.

The backyard garden was lovely & on breezy days, the fragrance of the flowers will waft into the kitchen & living area. It is also a relaxing & cosy area for morning coffees & evening meals.

Something to note for future renters though....you may face resistance from the kids every time you plan to leave the house. We had a hard time persuading our kids to leave the house for sightseeings and even when out, they were always whining to go back "home". ;p

During our stay, I had sprained my ankle during sightseeing. The owner was very kind to provide me with a tube of pain relief cream so that my injury will not affect the rest of our holiday.

We had a fantastic stay during the 4nights and will definitely book this place again in future! No doubt!

“Just what we were looking for and more”

I was looking for a house as an alternative to hotels for a surprise 50th girls weekend.
Marina Villas popped up as fitting my criteria and it more than did that.
It is a great location with all you need on your doorstep. It is a lovely walk down into Bath, however if you don't want a stroll then the buses run right past and a taxi is cheap as chips and easy to pick up.
The house is very well kept, comfortable and made us all feel we could kick our shoes off and feel at home. The basics were already there and the appliances meant we could have had every meal there. The 2 showers were great and the rooms were spacious and comfy.
Tony is very responsive to any pre visit questions and was very hospitable.
We will definitely be returning to visit Bath and we would be more than happy to book Marina Villas again as it made our stay feel personal and relaxed.

“Conveniently located - good for a weekend stay”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Stayed here with my family over a weekend for a nearby wedding at Priston Mill (only a 10min drive). Very conveniently located for Bath as just a couple of miles outside of the town. We got the bus in - goes regularly from just down the road of the house. Bit shocked at the price of £4 per ticket and actually think with a few of us travelling in it would have been cheaper to park in the centre than use public transport.

Parking available right around the corner from the house and Co-op just a few minutes walk down Oolite road which was handy for breakfast things!

Milk and other essentials were left for us which was great.

Room set up was ideal for us with 2 doubles and a single upstairs and a twin on the ground floor. Handy having 2 bathrooms and the upstairs shower was powerful and hot - lovely!

The house itself was fairly basically furnished and also on the main road so the bedrooms at the front of the house was fairly noisy - which is the majority of them so bring earplugs! Was good to have some outside space. The house was very warm and well insulated and all in all we enjoyed our stay, it had everything that we needed.

“Lovely Large Home - nothing to fault!”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The accommodation at Marina Villias was fantastic, and felt like home the two days we stayed. My daughter loved having a double bed and I couldn't fault the home at all. I would highly recommend staying here and visiting Bath. Great playing field just across the road for exercising dogs also.

“Fab home, easy access to Bath, great hosts, defo. booking again. A+”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely clean house with lots of space and a charming cottage style garden which is so pretty. Tony, Teresa and their daughter are all so lovely and really helpful with everything including having milk in fridge for that vital first coffee on arrival. In fact they have quite a few essentials in cupboard like oil, sweeteners, vinegar, salt, pepper etc etc. Marina Villas has a bus stop right outside making access to Bath, Bristol etc so very easy. The chip shop round the corner is good value and huge portions, Sainsburys is within walking distance for major shop and co-op next to chip shop for all the basics or treats you fancy. Beds were all comfortable, so we all slept well.

We visited lots of places so here comes a couple of reviews too .... Longleat was excellent and good value for us as we used Tesco vouchers to buy tickets in advance and so saved a fortune. Be prepared for a long day as you can spend hours and hours there with masses of walking too. .... My daughter and friend went to the Thermae spa and had a brilliant few hours, so they would recommend it. ..... Bath city centre has everything you need including fantastic tourist attractions, amazing architecture, beautiful green areas, lovely canal and great shops all of which can occupy you for days and days and days. .... The East Asian museum which is missed by most is also very interesting and right near the Crescent if you are visiting. ...... Bristol Balloon Fiesta was on before we left and so we also enjoyed going to see the night glow and fireworks all for free ... but be aware that it is a lot of walking to get to.

all in all you cant go wrong with this accommodation and they do have a seperate cottage which sleeps 2 if you fancy a romantic break away too.
