Let your property with Curious Retreats, a local, independent and family-run agency.

We take care of Suffolk’s finest holiday homes, hand-picked for the Curious.  We’re proud to represent a selection of the county’s most sought after properties; from the exceptional to the extraordinary.

At our core lies a passionate and dedicated team with over fifteen years industry experience.

With a thorough understanding of the Suffolk letting market, our owners are in the best possible hands.  Our approach is a simple one – we work with each and every owner on an individual basis; understanding their requirements, expectations and, most importantly, the property itself.  Your property is our property, a retreat to savour and when you can’t be there, let us take care.

Our Values

These guiding principles underpin our ethos and shape every aspect of how we present ourselves to owners (and guests):

Togetherness – a collective effort to provide amazing places and spaces for the Curious to enjoy.

Curiosity – always delight in uncovering the old and discovering the new wherever you are.

Respect – our admiration for the area and each other, we conduct ourselves with consideration and care.

Authenticity – If it’s good for you, it’s good for us. Everyone plays their part, is heard and is supported.

Why Curious

We are focus led, service driven and attention-to-detail seeking people where quality will always come before quantity. Every property is unique and we love them in all shapes, sizes and locations. There is no one-size-fits-all in our portfolio – just ones that inspire.

From the first point-of-contact, you will embark on a relationship to embrace, a journey together, as family, to create success and help make a greener world. Did you know, we plant a tree for every booking we take. Imagine, your property could contribute to new woodlands and rainforests worldwide.

There are no hidden costs or surprises. The professional photography, detailed floorplan, property description, welcome information, social media, digital marketing, seven-day-a-week team availability and guidance all the way is on us.

Leave it to us…

We can arrange housekeepers, maintenance, gardeners and window cleaners, to name just a few, so that your property remains your oasis of happiness, each and every time you visit.

Centred around our core values, we prioritise occupancies, repeat guest rates, Suffolk experiences and reviews by incorporating dynamic pricing, integration with online travel agents and offering a comprehensive concierge service to all.

It is your property, so you must enjoy it. We will not hold you to any usage limitations. However, if you are here, there is one deal – you come to say hello.

The Important Stuff

We may be the opposite of corporate but we always maintain a high level of professionalism. Before formalising any agreements, we will establish a clear and mutual understanding of all terms, along with confidence in specific areas. These encompass pricing, commission structure, availability, preferred arrival days, duration of stays, and the option for comprehensive management services. We recognise that these aspects demand careful consideration and dedication, which we are fully committed to providing. To facilitate your involvement, an owner portal will be at your disposal, and you can expect punctual monthly payments accompanied by detailed statements.

In the unlikely event your plans or situation change, let’s talk about it. We know this can be the case and as long as we have effective communication, mutual transparency and we prioritise any confirmed bookings; we will always be fair and reasonable.

What’s Next?

Whether you are looking to buy, have a building site or restoration project, or if you are good-to-go; we don’t mind and have expertise in all these areas. There is no commitment and we welcome all enquiries with interest and appreciation.

Whatever your situation, including already being with another agency, we would only be too happy to organise an informal and confidential chat to discuss all things Curious Retreats and the benefits of our offerings.

With a Suffolk focus, a strong local presence and flexible approach, the Curious Team is on-hand to guide you from start to finish. In fact, there is no finish – it is more an evolution of regular reviews, data galore, year-on-year analysis and if that’s not enough fun for you, we have our annual curious celebration to look forward to!

We’d love to hear from you…

Whether your property exudes an essence of luxury, boasts a boutique charm, embraces contemporary aesthetics, radiates quaint allure, offers an alternative appeal, stands out boldly from the crowd, evokes a wow factor, showcases uniqueness, or simply embraces the timeless charm of traditional Suffolk – rest assured, it aligns perfectly with our interests.

There is nothing more we like than speaking, meeting or introductions so please do get in touch. For any referrals, we are a generous bunch too!

Finally, as property owners ourselves, we have an intimate understanding of what you require and deserve. This shared perspective ensures that we are committed to forging a lasting and memorable partnership.

Last but not Least

See what some of our current owners have to say:

 

“We love that Curious Retreats come across as a fun, genuine and exciting company. They go the extra mile and seem genuinely passionate about creating the perfect family holiday. We like that they want to celebrate local produce, encourage local places to visit and recommend local chefs / therapists / entertainers etc., which all feeds into looking after local business which we are both very passionate about.”

Owner of Wisteria House, Oakley

“We are so thrilled to be part of this exciting new venture “Curious Retreats” and hope our guests enjoy all the fabulous things Aldeburgh has to offer as much as we do, long walks, tennis, sailing, golf, great restaurants, music venues, theatre, art exhibitions and cinema.  We love spending time with our growing family and enjoying the odd glass of wine with friends.” –

Owner of Stables Studio, Aldeburgh

 

Should you want to speak to a current owner because we consider ourselves a family, this can be organised. Thereafter, we hope you are part of the Curious Club.
