Why Helen chose Poole

5 minutes walk to Sandbanks beaches.

This used to be our home and so is furnished to a high standard. We are very proud of it and ensure it is maintained to a level we would expect in a holiday home.

What makes this house unique

Decked area and a garden

Relaxing Break in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 out of 5
The Retreat is just wonderful, with a clean, bright, modern and comfortable interior, fitted out with everything you could possibly need, complete with a lovely decked area to relax on after a long hard day on the beach.

We have stayed in many self catering cottages etc, over the years and The Retreat is one of the best we have been to. It is ideally located so you can walk to the beach and local restaurants/cafes, car ferry, etc; and it was really nice not to have to use the car so much.

Helen and Jonathan were great hosts and made us feel very welcome which was really appreciated.

Although we have been to Dorset on several occasions we had not visited Sandbanks and it didn't disappoint, the weather was amazing, sunshine every day. Sandbanks and Studland Beaches are amazing and we spent much of our time relaxing on them. A trip to Brownsea Island is a must and is great for exploring and wonderful views.

Our week was over all too quickly and although we didn't want to leave, we returned home fully relaxed and refreshed after a wonderful holiday and would love to go back in the not too distant future.

Fabulous location and welcome from hosts.

  • 5 out of 5
The house is located in a fantastic area, very close to the beach and local amenities. The house it's self is ideal for a family and has a fantastic interior. We spent most evenings enjoying the last of the sun on the lovely decked area. Helen and Jonathan are very welcoming, and the arrival basket they left for us was a lovely gift. We hope to return soon.

A great break

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay at the property, which again did not disappoint. The property has everything you need (both inside and outside) to have a very comfortable holiday and it is well maintained. The location and owners are both great too! The weather was fantastic during our week (close to 30 every day). Lots to see and do in the area with kids of all ages.

I am sure we will stay there a third time, which gives you a summary of our views on the property and the owners.

Lovely property, fantastic location.

  • 5 out of 5
The property was excellent for our family holiday and the location couldn't be better. It was clean, bright and modern and had everything you needed. Helen and Jonathan were very friendly and welcoming with lots of helpful tips to make the most of our stay. Will definitely stay again.

Just fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
Just amazing, the place is absolutely gorgeous, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and in a wonderful position. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, Helen even answered me on Easter Saturday and helped me make last minute plans for my "ever so slightly difficult" CEO to stay. There is nothing you could fault, and we will definitely use again (and again!) Do not hesitate to book if you get the chance.
