Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Tranquility is a beautifully appointed south-facing apartment recently completed. It has unrivalled stunning panoramic views across the main and most scenic part of Poole harbour. The tranquility offered together with the views are unequalled.
Yet it is only a short walk onto Poole Quay and the many restaurants and bars. Take a boat ride from the Quay around the islands or to Brownsea Island and nature watch or to Swanage. Alternatively watch the fishermen land or just sit and have a drink and people watch.
