A 2 bedroom compact first floor flat with parking ideally situated in Sandbanks
We live in Bristol and love visiting the Sandbanks area as it has so much to offer from beaches to walking to sports and activities for the children. Closeness to the beach and harbour is ideal for us as well as being situated in a block with a Tesco Express means there's only a short trip for milk and fresh bread!
Louise purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Louise chose Sandbanks
The flat is in an ideal location on the Sandbanks Penninsula. It offers an affordable solution for those wishing to visit the area. There is a dedicated parking space for the property right outside which is ideal in this area. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with all utensils, pots and pans, hob and oven, microwave, kettle and toaster. It has a washing machine but no dishwasher. With the beach and harbour only a stones throw away, activities can be enjoyed without travelling or much preparation. Although BBQs are not permitted in the property, they can be enjoyed on the beach or harbour areas. Poole with its major shops and supermarkets is only a 10 minute drive away. The Sandbanks area showcases some very exclusive properties which can be seen when walking around. The main beach area has a cafe and ice cream kiosks and has a fantastic sandy beach for all to enjoy. As a family of four with two children, we have always enjoyed the area and have found there's always plenty of activities on offer as well as space to relax and unwind.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property although smaller than many exclusive Sandbanks properties has an outside balcony looking across to Brownsea Island. It also has a dedicated parking space saving on expensive parking charges. The location is ideal for exploring Sandbanks and the Poole area.

Excellent apartment and location
Excellent location for a family holiday. This was our second time in the apartment and hopefully we will be back next year.
A little piece of heaven
We had a lovely week at sandbanks. The flat was perfect for our needs and the extra bed in the study area meant my teenage boys could have their own space.
The use of towels and beach towels was an extra bonus. The view from the balcony was lovely with beautiful sunsets. We will definitely be returning.
A relaxing time in Sandbanks
A lovely flat , more spacious than expected. A super position right across the road from the bay and a few minutes to the lovely sandy beach. Having a parking space was a real bonus. The small Tesco underneath the flats was so handy as it is the only shop there but had a very good choice of goods. We would love to stay again.
holiday at Poole
We very much enjoyed our time at the flat at Sandbanks, three of us mother, daughter and her boy of 8 years old. I would haven given the location 5 stars but for the fact that there was still scaffolding on the house (Luise had told us about) and therefore we could not really use the balcony with the work still going on. The beach was very near, abou 5 minutes on foot. The flat was above Tescos, which was really handy. The first day, the TV was not working, Luise sent somebody as soon as poss to get it working. All in all we had a great time there.
Our second stay at this property which is in a great location to the beach and surrounding area! Building work is still taking place to the exterior of this property however it did not affect our stay. We look forward to returning next year!
Very impressed flat had everything you could wish for.Louise informed us before booking there was scaffolding around building and work in progress on the lift but it was no bother at all.Good bus service with stops close by,funny thing being weekend service a lot better than weekdays,but access to Poole,Bournemouth and Swanage very easy if you don’t want to drive yourself.You have a free dedicated spot for parking
