About us

Gareth from Coastal Havens

Gareth, Marie, Wilf and Winnie!

Marie and I (Gareth) met having come together through the Service Management industry and a shared love of working with people. I am originally from Bournemouth and Marie Leicestershire, where coast meets country!

We love our homes at Sandhills, and regularly stay at both when we can and as availability allows. Having first bought Beach Bliss and after a wonderful summer there, we decided to rent it out and share. This was initially with friends and family, but then openly to let everyone enjoy the peaceful location in a superb spot. This was then followed by the purchase of Beach Dreams a couple of years later.

Our love of the coast and country subsequently saw us move to Lymington in 2019 where we converted and added a third property ‘Salterns Lodge’ to this small portfolio of holiday lets. This collectively is Coastal Havens today.

We have four grown up children between us and have 2 gorgeous dogs Wilf and Winnie. All share our love of the homes, the walks on the beaches at Mudeford and the New Forest.
