“A fantastic break with great friends.”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A lovely 3 day break in your lovely home from home apartment. Whilst a little disappointed on our arrival as the communal hall is in desperate need of a decor once u step through the door a lovely place awaits you. The decor is bright with lovely touches everywhere. Everything needed is there even candles with matches. The park opposite the apartment is lovely and the boating lake is a fantastic setting in the sunshine that we had for most of the weekend there. Visted some stunning places including Swanage and Corfu Castle all finished with a fantastic meal at RIck Stein restaurant Sandbanks Sunday evening watching the sunset. A great weekend celebrating birthdays with some special friends.

“Beautiful Apartment in a Great Location for Exploring”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The apartment was extremely well equipped - the owner obviously put a lot of thought into this. It was beautifully furnished with a nautical theme and lacked nothing. It was located in a great area for exploring, either walking or cycling. Even though it was on the main road to Sandbanks, it was lovely and quiet. We would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect base to explore and great for families”
Reviewed January 23, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We enjoyed a few days just before Christmas in this lovely apartment. More than enough room for our family (2 adults and 2 young children), with all the amenities we needed. Feels like a real cosy home-from-home to relax in, but well placed as a base to explore Sandbanks, Poole and surrounding area. Absolute pleasure dealing with the owners also!

“lovely spacious apartment”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a short break in this lovely and spacious apartment in the exclusive Sandbanks area. It sleeps 4 (one double and one twin-bedded room) so ideal for families or friends sharing. The apartment is beautifully decorated with subtle colourways, and much larger than we expected, with a fully kitted-out kitchen for those who want to cater for themselves. A short drive takes you to Poole harbour with its old and interesting side streets, a choice of beautiful and clean beaches including Sandbanks and Studland Bay, Brownsea island (ferry from Sandbanks or Poole) with its red squirrels, and the small town of Swanage is also easily reached with its steam train to Corfe Castle - well worth a visit.
There's no shortage of things to do here - highly recommended! Also for those who like to visit country houses, National Trust's Kingston Lacey is a short drive away.

“Very comfortable well equipped base in a great location”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

From the moment we arrived we were surprised by the size of the property as it was much bigger than we were expecting which made it even more comfortable for a family of 4 to stay. The place was spotless and it had everything we needed, the welcome pack was also a nice touch. The communication with Emma was great and she was very accommodating with the dates we needed. TJ Fish and Chip shop came recommended as well as the local patisserie and neither disappointed nor did the local Indian restaurant The Gate of India. Special mention though on the food front was the Pub 'The Dancing Moose' who did some of the best chicken wings I have ever had and were also a hit with the kids, the staff were also very friendly. Away from food the apartment is in a great location for Sandbanks beach, although we ended up driving there every day (5 minutes max) there is a bus stop nearby or you could walk it in 30 minutes. The beach itself was amazing, very clean soft sand and perfect for a family as you can walk out in the clear water feeling safe in the knowledge that it is a very gradual slope (this is by the life guards and crazy golf) Opposite the apartment is a lovely park that we used at the end of each day to let my youngest kick a ball around while the other was in the playground. Overall it was a perfect 5 days for us, we spent 2 1/2 days on the beach, a day on Brownsea Island which was lovely and on the one rainy day we went to corfe for a few hours. In summery I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place, Emma thank you for your advice and for letting us stay around the dates we needed, we would certainly stay again.

“brilliant apartment & location for family getaway”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

From the minute we walked in the door of this apartment we all loved it!
They have done a great job of doing it up, lovely décor, all the bits and bobs you need to self cater and a some toys and games for kids along with things like pottys etc..
The location for a family is particularly is good (although good for anyone staying actually), as there is a park with a brilliant playground across the road and it was only 1 min by car towards sandbanks to the local tesco's, also a co-op at the petrol station along the way, so very easy when you are cooking for a family or need fresh buns/produce for lunches.
Poole is in the other direction and about a 20min walk, or a £5 taxi ride if you don't want to walk or drive.
We thought the location was great as beaches & facilities one direction 5 min drive, or playground & Poole town in the other direction also only 5 mins drive.
There is absolutely loads to do in the area, we were only there for 4 days and easily kept the kids occupied locally and also went to Palmers Farm which was great, spent most of day there and quite reasonable compared to London prices and then for free was the brilliant Upton Country Park which we took bikes and spent most of day at also.
Definitely love to go back to both the apartment and Poole for a longer holiday, easily have 10 days there, even if weather a bit rubbish stuff to do and the apartment is a really nice place to just hang out in. Our children 4 & 6 yrs.
