Guaranteed Lettings | Waterside


Make site fees a breeze

Some Waterside owners choose to offset the ongoing costs of ownership by letting their holiday home when they are not using it.

And so confident are we in the high standard offering of The Tempest and The Osmington, and the popular demand for holidays on the South Coast, that we will guarantee you returns on your lettings fully managed through Waterside for year one. Available only to owners of these two lodges.

We can provide you with more details of our available finance options, and as prices now include site fee’s until 2026, owning a luxury holiday home might just be easier than ever before.
