It was well equipped and even stocked with tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter etc when we visited. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating, we would recommend staying here.

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 :)

It was just as lovely this time around too. Extremely comfortable, clean, spacious and very attractive. Our Dorset cream tea was delicious too. Jane has provided everything to make your stay really relaxing, the only thing she can't fix is the weather! The location is fabulous with so much to see and do in the local area.
