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.

Why Renee Clarke chose Poole

The property consists of two new build apartments decorated to the highest standard and aimed a family time. The apartment are situated directly across the road from the beach and park and are the prefect place to explore the tranquil Dorset Countryside.

The apartment has the option of a beach hut rental situated directly on the beach and equipped with beach toys, tea and coffee and the perfect view of the harbour.

What makes this apartment unique

Comes with family friendly toys, high chair, travel cot and Netflix.

Fantastic property and really well equipped in lovely location with view of sea

  • 4 of 5

It was great to be able to walk into Poole or just across the road to the beach and playground. We had the ground floor apartment which had a lovely large garden and lots of living space. I would definitely recommend renting the beach hut, it was fun. I wish we could have stayed longer. The owner had provided everything you need including a Thermos for the beach! A footstool in the bedroom for little children would have been a useful addition.
