“Home from home, great location”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Right in the middle of the town, our car was also well placed in nearby hotel grounds.
Jane made us very welcome, easy-going. Very pleasant.
The flat itself is strung out on the first floor of the building, at the back of the line of shops on Institution Road. Walking in through either the internal door from shared stairs with other flats, or from its own external door accessible from the rear alley. Modern bathroom with excellent shower is one end, then the ample double bedroom,then kitchen, then lounge with double bed if required. Flat easily slept our family of four. Within lounge is the rather lovely Juliet balcony door, providing safe ventilation and a pleasant spot to read overlooking the courtyard garden (only accessible to the ground floor flat).
Beds were extremely comfortable. Excellent 40" Sony TV, and use of both washing machine and tumble dryer.
Thank you Jane for a lovely stay :)

“Perfectly placed and a real home from home”
Reviewed August 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Right in the middle of it all but nestled away for perfect privacy.
Swanage is a great place for a holiday and our little family adored staying here, the flat felt just like home, and gave us the perfect base to enjoy our holiday. Nothing more to say than thank you with a massive seal of approval from us.

“Ideal base - so close to the beach & the shops but in a quiet corner.”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Jane was very friendly and helpful on arrival. The flat was ideal for our family of three.
We had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, excellent shower and good kitchen facilities. Everything was very clean. Good value for money considering the location is so close to the beach and all that Swanage has to offer. Only thing lacking was a view, but for the price I wasn't expecting one!

“Great central location”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Comfortable, well equipped flat in the centre of Swanage. Within a few steps of the shops and the beach. The open plan kitchen /living room was a nice space to relax in the evening. Very helpful owners.

Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely place to stay in such a beautiful seaside town. The accomadation provides everything you need,especially when holidaying with two young children. So close to all the amenities and so much more. Gorgeous welcome pack on arrival, of local croissants aswel a very kind and helful greeting from Jane.

“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Me and my teenager daughters stayed in this lovely apartment during carnival week. The location is right in the centre of the town, moments from the beach but also in a lovely quiet spot. The car parking was conveniently at a local hotel. The apartment was well equipped and very clean. The shower room off the bedroom was very high spec. The kitchen had a washing machine and a tumble dryer which was very handy. Ian and Jane, the owners, were very welcoming and had stocked the flat with lots of useful essentials (e.g. Milk, butter, tea, toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, soap etc).

We have just returned from this gem of a holiday flat. Nestled right in the heart of town moments from the beach, restaurants, shops and Swanage railway. The flat was well equipped and clean. The owner was very helpful and friendly. It was nice to have somewhere to park the car though it is up a very steep hill in a local hotel. Once parked we hardly used the car. We had steam train rides , boat rides and went on the local buses. We will visit again and would be more than happy to stay at this property
