“A Fabulous Place to Stay”

Rogan MGB in garage

The Rogan’s MGB GT in The White House garage

Recent visitors Marjorie and Julian Rogan made us very happy with their Guest Book comments after their 6 night stay at The West Wing.  They brought their very nice MGB car with them to attend an international meeting of MG enthusiasts at Le Touquet.  It was an honour to find space in our warm dry garage for this well-maintained 45 year-old.  (Though no problem because it’s a 6 car garage!)

Here’s what they said:

“A fabulous place to stay.  Very comfortable, restful cosy apartment with everything we needed for a perfect break.

There are some wonderful places to eat in the nearby towns – fish dishes were especially good.  Thanks to Sue and Patrick for a lovely welcome and for taking the time to give us helpful tips and local knowledge, making our time in Picardy/Somme so special.

I’m sure we’ll be back here again soon”

It was unfortunate that the Rogans had bad weather for their first couple of days, but at least their car didn’t have to stay out in the rain.  Fortunately the sun came out and 350 old MGs had some glorious touring weather to enjoy the region.

More guest comments – and a new Visitors Book at Dune

We have had some very nice comments recently on Tripadvisor.  Check out what they said about The Pines, or click here to see what they said about Sandboys Dune!

Near the end of our 12th season of letting Sandboys Dune our Visitors Book ran out of pages. Years of nice comments from our guests have had to be archived and a new book obtained. Of course, all the pages in the new book were blank. Would we get some comments – or would our guests be too shy to start it off?

IMG_20150829_112408988Hooray! Here’s our first page of comments in the new book! Everyone agrees Dune is very conveniently positioned for shops beach, aqua club and tourist outings (even to Paris). We are complimented on the level of equipment, and our helpfulness. And we’re told the new Wifi is very fast!

Thanks to you all! Keep commenting, please. It all helps us to provide you with what you want.

It is rewarding work being a gite owner

It’s always nice to hear from our guests when they have enjoyed a holiday in one of the Sandboys gites.

This week we’re feeling happy because it’s still early in the season and we’ve heard from two families who have just left the Sandboys houses after enjoyable holidays.

First, Elke and Joop and their family from Belgium, who stayed at Sandboys Dune, left some very nice comments in our Visitors’ Book and also a note asking if they could book another week at Dune later in the year.  Of course we were delighted and we’ve already reserved their dates in July.

Kettle family comments in Sandboys Pearl guest book

Next it was the Kettle family, Peter, Amanda, Max (age 4) and Chloe (5) who left Sandboys Pearl today after their second long weekend this year.  They left a long note in our guest book, telling us what a great time they had – again – and how much they loved the place.

Last week the charming Gogo family presented us with a very nice flowering houseplant on their departure.

We hope we’ll see all our happy guests come back time and time again.  It’s the best reward we could have for our small efforts.
