Why Helen chose Sandbanks

5 minutes walk to Sandbanks beaches.

This used to be our home and so is furnished to a high standard. We are very proud of it and ensure it is maintained to a level we would expect in a holiday home.

Perfect family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect our needs. There were two bedrooms on the ground floor with a bathroom and one bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The location of the house was fantastic, close to the beach, close to restaurants but very peaceful on an evening. The decor was lovely, it was spacious and the house had everything we needed.

Helen and Jonathan were the perfect hosts and gave us detailed information on the house and area.

We will definitely be coming back.

Great property in the heart of sandbanks

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a week in the Retreat and what a lovely property it was, extremely clean, the house had everything we needed, nice garden with BBQ and off road parking for 2 large cars. We met Helen the home owner, she was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Overall great property we will hopefully be returning soon.

Lovely spacious house in great spot in Sandbanks

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband and our three young children stayed at The Retreat for a week in August and had a lovely time. The house is very spacious with a great decking area and garden. Its location is great for Sandbanks and for getting the chain ferry over to Studland Bay which we did regularly.

Helen and Jonathan were very easy to contact in advance and we had no problems at all during our stay as everything had been thought of, there were even buckets and spades to take to the beach!

Overall, a really lovely house which hosted a wonderful summer holiday.

We had an amazing week, thank you!

I can only agree with all the previous reviews - it's very useful to read through them all.

We were very happy with the house (2 adults, one teenager, two children and one toddler in a travel cot).

The location is perfect - you will not get bored and the area is just stunning offering so much.

Helen and Jonathan were very welcoming and super helpful. We would go again!
