About Renee Clarke

My name is Renee Clarke and I am the property manager for this new build apartment. I rent the apartment on behalf of my friends (Dave and Emma) and I live just a 5 minute walk of the property.

I have 2 young children and we love living by the sea and all the pleasures it brings. During the Spring and Summer our family practically lives at the beach or on the water. We have a sail boat in Poole Harbour and also enjoy paddle boarding and BBQ most evenings.

Poole is a beautiful place to be and I look forward to welcoming you to this fabulous area and all it has to offer.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently and couldn't have asked for a better place in which to celebrate our friend's 50th. The property is immaculate and beautifully presented, offers a wonderfully social space and the balcony is the cherry on the cake, with uninterrupted views over Poole harbour. Would highly recommend.

Harbour View Apartment in Poole - top notch holiday venue - a must

  • 5 of 5

I travelled to Poole for a 5 day holiday with parents and their small dog.

Arrived at Harbour View Apartment and was impressed from the moment we arrived.

Easy to access, lovely on the eye - modern architecture inside/outside.

We had booked the upstairs apartment with the wonderful balcony - all helped by fabulous sunny weather throughout our stay. The apartment is furnished to a high standard - has every mod con you could think of.

We loved our stay and we met up with Emma & Dave - lovely helpful people

We shall definitely return during this year for another holiday if we can and shall be recommending it to family and friends.

Gorgeous top floor apartment has everything you need with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Friday to Sunday, 5 busy mums in need of a break! The place was so lovely we only left to go shopping and to collect a Chinese takeaway! The apartment had everything you need for your stay the decor is modern and top of the range mod cons. Extremely clean. Can't wait to go back would recommend this place for friends and families and bigger groups as you can hire the whole house. Right on the beach what more could you want!
