Guest Testimonial: Carissa and her ‘Little Likely Lads’


We love hearing what our guests get up to at West Bay! This week, we were delighted to read a 2-part post from parenting and lifestyle blogger Carissa M. about her recent experience in one of our Salterns houses. The family thoroughly enjoyed their weekend at West Bay, and we’ve highlighted some of our favourite quotes from Carissa and her ‘Little Likely Lads’ (Tiger, Beaux and Violet), together with a few of the gorgeous photos she took on-site.

‘The little lads were so excited and wanted to go out on the deck and watch us sail away from the Portsmouth shores… the sun showed its face, so it was lovely and sunny’

As Carissa found, your break really does begin as you step onto the Wightlink ferry and escape the frantic pace of modern-day life. The ferry is a quick, easy way to travel, and kids of all ages will love waving goodbye to the mainland as your holiday begins. We’ll even book your trip for you to make sure your journey is as stress-free as possible. At West Bay, one call does it all.

‘The Saltern Houses are stunning, inspired by New England homes, or according to Tiger: “MASSIVE beach huts on stilts”’

Each of our homes is designed with comfort and relaxation in mind, with everything you need for the perfect getaway. With 15 acres of landscaped grounds and pathways, kids are free to ride their bikes and scooters, or run around freely on the grass. If you’re unsure about which of our homes would suit you best, the Country Club team is on hand to help; we’ll make sure your accommodation is a perfect fit for you and your family.

Who knows, your kids might even love it so much, they’ll want to stay forever!

‘Tiger suggested we go home, collect our belongings and move in!’
