View of harbour (sailboats etc) from balcony and lounge area. Short walk to Poole shopping area and water front bar area and Poole Pottery. Very short drive/walk to major supermarkets. Lovely and clean on arrival as expected. We took day trips to Monkey World, Bournemouth and the New Forest - all of which easy to commute by car. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to others. On a personal note we stayed with little one who had just started toddling, balcony was very safe for him which was great however the apartment is on the 1st and second floors and we didn't think to bring a stair gate! Upstairs hallway has a door which is fab, but downstairs we had a little extra work ensuring he didn't investigate the stairs! Our issue but thought I would mention it so other families staying consider bringing stairgates or similar! Very mobility impaired friendly, possibly need to pre-arrange with owner due to extra cost of electricity when using mobility aids, however possibility of stair-lift/hoist system/shower wet room etc. Laid out with room for a wheelchair to move around. As a fully mobile family these additions did not get in our way at all. Thank you for our stay, we greatly enjoyed our first trip to Poole :)

We cannot fault it so will return to it for years to come (just hope Penny and Mark havent any plans to sell it ! Lol) My in laws came with us this time and they loved it. The house is well equipped with 2 good size bedrooms both with very comfortable king size beds. The 3rd bedroom has 2 single beds in it which I use as a dressing room lol. The weather was kind to us this week so my mother in law and I enjoyed sitting in the back garden or on the balcony drinking a cuppa while watching the boats go by. My hubby and father in law made good use of SKY TV! The house is in a great location with superb views and you can get to many places within 30 minutes drive such as Sandbanks, Studland, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Swanage and Wareham. After having some lovely daily walks with our dog, its great to leave the car on the drive and take a leisurely walk into Poole in the evening to have a bite to eat. There are many dog friendly pubs that serve food but our favourite is The Crown Hotel where they have an excellent menu and the food is just fab. The staff are very friendly and always make a fuss of Molly, our cocker spaniel, and give her a treat. We were all very sad to leave but will be back again. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

From the moment we booked the property the owners were really helpful in offering to provide a high chair for our daughter and suggesting local restaurants which were child friendly. On the day we checked in they emailed to say the property was going to be ready early for us and they were easily contactable throughout our stay if we had any queries. As pictured and described in the listing, the property is very clean and has been finished to an excellent standard with all amenities thought of and provided for. It is a central location and close to local shops, bars, mini markets and restaurants. We also took a few trips to Sandbanks and Studland which were a short drive away however, there is also a ferry 50 meters away from the property that goes to Sandbanks if preferred. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family and we would stay her again ourselves. We did not need one as our daughter was not mobile however, if you are staying with small children I would suggest asking the owners for a stair gate or taking your own due to the lounge being on the top floor.
