BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED APARTMENT WITH LOVELY VIEWS!

  • 5 out of 5
I've just spent a week here in Sandbanks with my family, and we've thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We've stayed in other apartments within "Golden Gates" over the years, but none had the quality finish of this one, our first impressions were "wow!" and now we're home we all want to be back there again!
We loved having the dual aspect view with the "usual" golden gates view out over the bay and chain ferry we have been used to, but because of the location of this property, theres lovely views out towards Brownsea Island too!
Another bonus of the location is not being able to hear any noise from the nearby Haven Hotel, which used to be a slight issue with some other properties in the complex. I've not slept as well for months it was a real bonus to me to catch up on some sleep, and the bedrooms were spacious and well fitted. I was lucky enough to have the en-suite and that was also really nicely finished.
I had to really think hard to find any fault at all, the only slight nit-pick I would say my family found turning the taps off with wet hands a bit tricky as they are just rounded tap heads, which obviously were slippery when wet, but it's hardly a deal breaker!
I'd certainly recommend this property to friends without doubt, and we hope to stay again next year if possible!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at my apartment - I love it there too!!

I agree that the apartment has an extra allure, with the views, not only of the chain ferry and all the boat activitiy, but over towards Brownsea Island also..
I hope you come next year again, I have already some people re-booking for the third time!!

Best wishes, Liz.

A WONDERFUL APARTMENT IN A SUPERB LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed a fabulous holiday in this superb apartment. The arrangements all worked out well - payment, key collection etc. Fiona, who met us with the keys also showed us the apartment and was very helpful.
The apartment far exceeded our expectations.
It is spacious, all of the furniture is comfortable -especially the leather sofa and chairs. The views are amazing.
One of the many great things about the location is its proximity to the chain ferry. You can hop over to Studland any time - and we did so several times. The apartment has a nice balcony so you can enjoy outdoors space. It's fairly private, being on the upper floor. I was expecting the apartment to be on the 4th floor, and was surprised to discover that it has its own separate entrance, shared only with one other apartment below.
There are so many places to explore nearby - Brownsea Island is a favourite of mine, with its fascinating history.
Getting to Swanage by bus is easy - on the "Breezer" if you prefer not to drive. Shell Bay Restaurant and bar just over on Studland is great. The Jazz Cafe is also a fine place to have a relaxing meal. You can walk to Bournemouth for some enjoyable exercise. We had a very nice meal at Vesuvio - a beachside Italian restaurant.
The apartment is relaxing to stay in if the weather is not great. The kitchen is really well-equipped. All in all, we loved our stay here. And hope to return.
My only gripe, and it is not about the apartment, is that there are no supermarkets in easy reach. We stocked up at Waitrose in Poole.
We found the property well-managed, well- maintained and clean. The Master en suite bathroom has a bath/ shower that some people lacking mobility may find difficult to get in and out of. For us it wasn't a problem - but you need to be careful with wet tiles.
I would recommend this luxury property - with its unique and very special location. Sandbanks beach is great if you are a family group, but we preferred the more natural state of Studland beaches. They are easy to get to.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in my apartment and found everything to your liking. As you say, there are so many things to do within easy reach.
I am trying to improve the apartment each year and hope when you come back that you will enjoy the improvements. I have added grab rails to the two bathrooms to help get in and out of the bath/showers.
I believe everyone is surprised to find how spacious the apartment is, compared to many, which means it's great for two families to stay together.
Come again!

SPACIOUS FLAT WITH GOOD VIEWS

  • 4 out of 5
A well-appointed, very clean and comfortable flat close to sandy beaches. The view is wonderful: even on rainy days (we had just one in 10 days) one can spend hours watching the world and all those boats go by. We even saw Captain Jack Sparrow and some pirates one morning waiting for the boat over to Brownsea Island. The beaches are beautiful - stretching for miles and miles. A good basis also for exploring the wider area.

Owner's Response: Dear Margot,
I am so pleased that your holiday went well. The weather this year has been quite unusual so far, but inspite of this, as you say, there is so much to see just through the picture window in the lounge. Wonderful place for the Grandparents to watch all the boat activity, without having to move out of the flat. Youngsters just love it too, when they are not on the beach or the ferry going over to Studland, or catching a trip over to Brownsea.
Come back again soon.
Best wishes, Liz.

GOLDEN GATES - GREAT!

  • 5 out of 5
We were looking for somewhere to stay for a wedding we were going to at Compton Acres - this apartment was perfect! It's only minutes away from the venue but it was also spotless and collecting and leaving keys etc was all made very simple and convenient. It's a lovely spacious apartment which we would definitely be happy to recommend!

GREAT HOLIDAY FLAT

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great family holiday in June. Large flat which comfortably catered for 6 adults, which was well appointed and clean. The views from the flat are stunning, plenty going on in terms of sea traffic making an ever changing landscape.

Good position for activities and the beach just round the head was beautiful, and even encouraged some of us to go swimming.

Excellent arrangements for picking up the keys and felt very secure.
