"We had never stayed in a converted double garage before and wont do again! The bed was the main horror complete with a paper thin duvet cover, i actually didnt know you could buy one as cheap and nasty as that. The most important thing to us is a comfortable bed, we had hardly any sleep the whole time we were there., obviously not a priority to the owners, it would be my first one! Couldnt wait to get home to our super king bed, dont get me started on the pillows either! Completely ruined our few days away, for the sake of a decent bed.Other people had remarked on it as well, who had stayed there according to the visitors book and the owners didnt come to say hello either, it has to be the worst place we have ever stayed. Perhaps now they might consider buying a new bed."

Deborah - verified booking

"Spacious child friendly holiday home on 3 floors with private garden which has fantastic views over the sea & lovely sandy beach. It is about 1 mile along the beach to Clacton with its impressive pier which has had a £4 million pound makeover. The property is very well equipped but a little bit dated with some creaky upstairs floorboards & the main bedroom could do with a king size bed instead of a double. The owners are very friendly & on hand for advice. We thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at the property, thought it was good value for money & we were very lucky to have warm sunny weather in early October. Would recommend!"

"Me, my partner and 20 month old daughter was looking for a weekend away somewhere peaceful to relax and spend quality time together and this place was perfect.. “Little Haven” is exactly what it says on the tin, it was 2 mins from the seafront, a beautiful home with a perfect size garden, we took strolls down the seafront, spent the day down clacton pier and also time just us as a family in the garden, we was blessed with amazing weather, the only negative we have is that we couldn’t stay longer :( everything you could possibly need at little haven, couldn’t fault it in any way :)"

Hilary - verified booking

"Just returned after 4 nights here and we can't fault our stay. The house is in a great location right next to the beach and a short walk from Clacton centre. The house was in great condition, clean and everything you could think of was provided. Barry, the owner, was on hand to let us in and show us around when we arrived also giving us advice about the area etc which is also provided in a house book.We had a great week even though it was out of season and loved the house and if we are heading this way again would definately consider staying again"
