  • "Garden area disappointing."

    All furniture broken and dangerous. Cupboards that could provide storage cluttered, being used by owner to store left over decorating materials and bits and bobs. Front door needs to be hung other way, nightmare for families accessing and egressing together. A bit tatty, broken window, awful blinds in kitchen, cupboards wrapped and now peeling off. Strong smell of damp. Very noisy at night.

  • "We enjoyed our stay overall and the property has great potential but if we visit the area again we would look for an alternative."

    The layout of the property is tricky with the main bathroom downstairs. The upstairs toilet is incredibly noises when you flush so didn’t want to use it when kids were sleeping. The accommodation is nicely decorated but all a bit rough around the edges with some mould/damp in the bathroom, broken windows that haven’t been repaired and everything felt in need of a deep clean. A few small extras that would make a difference - hand towels in the bathrooms, something to play with in the ‘games room’ upstairs, a bbq. The property is very central which while being convenient turned out to be very noisy at night. We weren’t able to find nearby parking and consistently had to park 5 minutes walk away up a very steep hill. Great selection of board games for older kids/grown ups. Nice window seats to people watch the high street and view towards the sea. Thank you for the welcome goodies!

  • "A centrally located property with great potential."

    No allocated parking, double yellow lines outside. We had to park 5 mins away up a very steep hill. A bar directly opposite caused a lot of noise until the early hours as revellers spilled out onto the street drinking & socialising. Garden access is from top of steep stairs, with further stairs once outside. Not suitable for anybody elderly or infirm or for young children. The garden furniture was all broken, with metal prongs dangerously sticking out. The garden area had not had a clean for a long time.The BBQ was non existent. Broken windows, a bedroom & toilet door that wouldn't shut, mould in bathroom, dirty utensils among other signs of neglect. Window blinds that dont fit or work. Would definitely benefit from a lot of general maintenance & a deep clean.

  • "Perfect central location, comfortable, clean, bright and airy."

    Tom & Claire readily available for queries. Definitely would use again.

  • "A well-presented and well-equipped apartment in a perfect location right in the centre of Swanage."

    The apartment has a slightly unusual layout with the bathroom downstairs next to the front door which might not suit some. The host was easily contactable and very helpful with the couple of minor issues we encountered. Personally, I feel it would be improved with curtains/blinds which block out the morning sun as I woke early each morning.

The property

Settled in the coastal town of Swanage in Dorset, just paces away from the beach, rests this duplex apartment, Still Waters.

Hosting a games room for the little ones and enjoying close proximity to a range of attractions, this three-bedroom holiday home is ideal for families.

The dwelling, which rests above a friendly shop, step inside to discover the spacious living/dining room, with an electric-fire to warm your toes after an adventure-filled day; unwind on the sofa and escape reality with the TV.

Gather around the dining table near the bay window to tuck-into hearty meals and chatter about the highlights of the day.

Moving through the property, find the sleek, grey kitchen where the designated chef can make use of the electric oven and hob, as well as a microwave for easy meals.

The kitchen also offers a washing machine and dishwasher for a fuss-free clean!

The ground-floor is home to a family bathroom, soak in the tub or rinse away the sand in the walk-in shower; you will also find a handy cloakroom adjacent with a basin and WC.

Venture upstairs to the first floor and step outside to the large decking area, here you can bask in the warm weather on the sun lounger and rustle up treats on the barbecue.

There are three adorned bedrooms to rest your head, choose between two doubles, one with an en-suite WC, as well as a bunk bedroom, all with furniture to house your belongings.

The children can escape to the second floor, where their imaginations can run wild in the games room, uninterrupted from the adults.

Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee and admire the sea-views and you can take a short walk to a café to enjoy a home-cooked breakfast.

Spend the afternoon on an award-winning beach, here you can splash in the clear waters and stroll along the promenade where you might be lucky enough to spot a dolphin!

The property offers bike storage so why not bring along your wheels to cycle along Purbeck Heritage Coast or Swanage beachfront to absorb the spectacular views of chalk-cliffs?

Explore more of Dorset's beauty at Wareham, ramble across the Hartland Moor National Nature Reserve and soak in the sights from Arne Reedbeds National Nature Reserve.

Head to the large harbour in Poole for exciting water activities, such as South Coast Jet Ski Hire and Poole Quay, and you can unwind on a cruise to another city.

For long-lasting memories with your loved ones, choose a stay at Sill Waters.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location

SWANAGE

Wareham 9.7 miles; Poole 20 miles.

The small, family-friendly seaside resort of Swanage is situated at the eastern end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, on the celebrated Isle of Purbeck and is probably best known for its wonderful, gently shelving golden sands. The little town offers visitors plenty of shops, good pubs and restaurants, some of which specialise in locally caught seafood, and is also well known for its annual jazz festival, which takes place each July. The attractive, Victorian wooden pier offers a great place for a stroll or try fishing, and often used a departure point for divers, it’s a wonderful place to watch the world pass by. The historic Swanage Railway has its terminus in the town and regular nostalgic steam engine trips take tourists for a picturesque 6-mile journey, chugging through lovely countryside to stop just beyond the romantic ruin of Corfe Castle. Nearby Durlston Country Park offers a lovely day out with spectacular coastal walks, dolphin spotting and wildlife watching, together with comfortable viewing points and a well-stocked cafe for a treat after all the fresh air. Take the short drive to Studland, which has one of the finest beaches in the country, surrounded by heathland, together with the regular chain ferry, which crosses the mouth of Poole Harbour to Sandbanks. This truly is a delightful holiday destination at any time of the year.
