About Louise

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 Poole

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.

Great location, ideal for the beach with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday, the apartment is well appointed and comfortable. It was lovely to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine overlooking Poole harbour. A great location near Sandbanks beach, our grandson loved it! It was handy having a convenience store below, and onsite parking. The nearby bus stops are a bonus for trips to Bournemouth, Poole or Swanage. Would definitely stay there again.

Absolutely perfect x

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful apartment situated in a perfect spot with amazing views, everything you could wish for, have had the best time.

So many places visited all great, Corfe Castle & the wonderful walk from behind the flat (Shore Road) to Bournemouth Pier on a glorious day was so uplifting, Wimborne perfect as was the open topped bus, bus stop in front of Apartment, to Poole & boat ride to Swanage a must. So didn’t want to leave, the owners must be so proud of what they have. We will be back next year xx

Lovely flat in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was clean, light, airy, well decorated and had everything we needed for a week's holiday. We were not expecting beach towels as well as the lovely white bathroom towels! The view over Poole harbour was great and the balcony with table and chairs an added bonus. The walk to the beach took a couple of minutes. The open top bus stopped virtually outside the door and we enjoyed trips to Bournemouth and Swanage. The walk along the beach to the ferry across the mouth of Poole Harbour took about 25 minutes. We had a week of great weather and enjoyed walking to Studland, Old Harry Rocks and Bournemouth. A day on Brownsea Island enabled us to see lots of red squirrells. We really couldn't fault the flat and shopping couldn't have been easier with the well-stocked Tesco Metro by the front door.

Sandbanks offers award winning sandy beaches and these are just a short walk out of the rear of the property. A promenade allows for walking or cycling all the way to Bournemouth. Poole Harbour is a delightful area where water sports can be enjoyed. The water sports academy is situated by the property and offers canoeing, windsurfing, paddle boarding etc. Wetsuits can be hired and tuition is offered. The Jazz cafe is a licensed bar and restaurant and is ideally located on the beach front serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Local jazz musicians often can be found playing in there. The Sandbanks hotel is open to non residents and has spa facilities, bar and restaurant. Rick Stein has recently opened a restaurant in Sandbanks and there is also the Sandbanks beach cafe and The Caff all near the beach. Just outside the main area of Sandbanks there is also a Loch Fyne restaurant. The National Trusts Brownsea Island is a short ferry trip across the harbour where native red squirrels roam freely and wildlife and natural vegetation can be seen. It offers a great day out for families. Poole park and Upton Country Park are a 5-10 minute drive away and offer facilities for all the family from walking routes to playgrounds for children, cafes as well as a large boating lake offering water sports.
