The house lacked for nothing and was both very clean and comfortable. The best part of the house though is It's location as it is only 5 minutes walk away from the sea and 10 - 15 mins from Poole Quay & the town centre. There is a lot to do both in Poole and the surrounding area. We loved the house and I think we may well return next year!

                                                                                                      We wanted a property well placed for enjoying the Poole Bay area with easy walking access to The Quay, Poole Park, Sandbanks and easy driving out further. And this house did exactly that. We were able to walk to breakfast on the Quay or the park (10 minutes); walk for sightseeing on Evening Hill and Sandbanks; take the ferry to Brownsea Island; walk around Holes Bay and Upton Country Park; and even a combined walk / ferry / walk / bus to Swanage and back. Driving out to the Isle of Purbeck, Lulworth Cove, Lyme Regis is easy from here (summer traffic nothwithstanding of course). The House comfortably accommodated 4 adults (parents and 2 daughters) for 2 weeks. It's in the heart of the estate so isn't 'a house with a view' - but it doesn't purport to be either. The conservatory is small and we didn't use it except for hanging damp jackets on the couple of wet days we had. Bedrooms are comfortable. The double bedroom can be a little warm in hot weather as it has the airing cupboard. It has a good TV although we hardly used it. Apart from intermittent connectivity on our first day WiFi was good for browsing and music listening over the 2 weeks we were there. Not sure about video streaming. For supplies there is a big Sainsbury's and an Aldi very close by (10 minute walk or 2 minute drive) and a Tesco Express on the Quay. All in all it did exactly what we expected.
