Sit on Tranquility's south-facing balcony, savour the islands, dine al fresco and enjoy the sunset and tranquility. Photos taken by me and don't do justice.

Location description from owner

The Dorset region

Dorset's attractions are the mild climate, golden sandy beaches, beautiful coastline and countryside. It's weather is favourable, Dorset having amongst the most sunshine hours per year in the UK.

There are the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle (National Trust), the Swanage Steam Railway, the long sandy beaches of Studland and the fascinating Sandbanks Chain Ferry (single car crossing approx £3) within a short distance. Treat yourself to tea at The Haven Hotel with its consevatory overlooking the entrance to Poole Harbour and the chain ferry.

Spend some time on the beaches of Sandbanks Peninsula, Poole, famous for having some of the most expensive properties in the world. Drop into Jazzy's Cafe (Shore Road) on a Sunday morning and read the papers and people-watch. See the Fireworks Display Summer Thursdays 10pm at Poole Quay.

For those interested in watersports, there is windsurfing tuition available at Whitley Bay, Sandbanks; sailing tuition at Rockley Watersports, Hamworthy, Poole; scuba diving off Swanage and sea fishing trips from Poole Harbour.

Water-skiing, wakeboarding and parasurfing also take place in Poole harbour. Mountain biking is a popular activity in the nearby Purbeck Hills.

Thomas Hardy based his many novels, eg The Mayor of Casterbridge, in Wessex - the Dorset countryside. An interesting read before bedtime!

“Great apartment, apart from few issues”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

The apartment is really lovely – great views, well-equipped and very nicely furnished, BUT be aware that Ruth has some rather bizarre “rules”, e.g: Apartment not ready until 5.00 pm – very late, especially if you’ve got young children. She will phone if it’s ready before, but that means hanging around waiting for a call. Cream carpet - before booking, she’ll ask you to agree to remove your shoes, but later she suggested we bring indoor shoes and slip-on footwear, “because of the cream carpet”. All of this made us feel very uncomfortable, especially as she re-stressed it all again when we arrived. Cleaning - The booking conditions state visitors must leave the accommodation “as clean as found …..otherwise a cleaning charge will be levied”. Normally the rental charge for holiday accommodation includes cleaning at the end of each let (though obviously most people would clean up anything they spilt or dropped, etc.), but Ruth stressed again on arrival that we must clean it ourselves, so we spent the last few hours of our holiday cleaning – not how we’d chose to end a holiday! Also, it just doesn’t make sense that visitors are required to leave the apartment “as clean as found”, yet it takes up to another 7 hours for Ruth to clean it again herself! A shame, as apart from these issues, we felt the apartment was very good. In a residential location, but quiet and only 5-10 mins walk to the Quay.

We are pleased you found the apartment really lovely, well-equipped and to a high specification. This is what we aim to offer our guests. Like you, most of our guests comment on the great views of Poole Harbour and beyond. Thank you for your kind comments. We had agreed a pre- arranged time to meet. In the event we did offer you early entry from 2 40pm but you were unable to take this up. The apartments are kept in an exceptionally clean condition and we thank all our guests for contributing to this. Our guests generally do appreciate these high standards. We thank our guests for their comments which we always carefully consider.

“Comfortable modern apartment in great location”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2012

Light, airy, warm and comfortably furnished apartment. Short walk to Poole town centre or frequent bus service nearby. Lovely views over the yacht club and river with some memorable sunsets. Excellent choice for those wishing to self cater due to the range and quality of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils. Even the kitchen knives were plentiful and sharp! We were able to prepare Christmas lunch as easily as being at home. We travel extensively and always try to select high quality accommodation. This apartment was amongst the best we have stayed in and represented good value for money.

“A luxury apartment that lived up to all our expectations & more”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2011

This is the first time we have spent a two week holiday in the UK. This apartment caused us to revise our thoughts on air travel & all the hassle. The apartment was very well kitted out , lovely position with magnificent views over Poole & the marina.Just sit & watch the sea & sailing. Very well positioned for Poole Quay which is always a hive of activity Bournemouth beach & shops within easy reach Sandbanks well worth a walk round if only to see how the other half live ! All in all one of our best holidays ever

Thank you so much for the review. Just to clarify, the apartment overlooks Poole HARBOUR and the marina. This is mentioned throughout our advert and can be seen on the photos. Thanks again for leaving the review and we’re delighted you had such a fantastic time.
