  • "Great house and spacious for 14, enjoyed a fabulous holiday week here and it’s a good location to explore the beautiful area and it’s many beaches."

    The owner, Steve, was helpful and responsive at all times, thanks again for quickly coming to our rescue when we locked ourselves out! Only watch out would be that it does have steep hills in the area, including the main driveway, which was tougher for our elderly guests to climb. We had a great week, would recommend and hope to visit again in the future

    A weekend of friends, paddle boarding and a Murder Mystery was enjoyed by all. A great host, even willing to dispose of the waste as recycling! The only mention would be the water pressure. We will definitely be returning.

  • "This is an absolutely gorgeous house that is clearly well looked after."

    The host even provided a little welcome pack including coffee, tea, milk, biscuits and even a bottle of prosecco! There were even fab recommendations in the house and as we were not local, these were very helpful! The driveway was too steep for our car to get up and the host did pre-warn about this before our stay. However, there was plenty of space on the road to park! Would definitely recommend.

  • "Property was exactly as described on the website."

    Large and spacious and extremely well equipped in the kitchen with all the utensils, cooking pans etc you would need. Whole property was very clean and tidy. There were 10 of us so it was quite busy at times but the layout suited the whole family. Contact from owner before we arrived was friendly and helpful particularly about the drive. Close to Poole centre but very quiet area and easy to reach other parts of the coast and places of interest.

  • "The house was great, very clean and good location, the only down side was the plumbing."

    It took forever to have a shower, but overall the house was great and we would return.

  • "The house was lovely and well equipped."

    It would’ve been perfect if you could’ve accessed the annex through the house. It also needed a shower on the upper floor. It didn’t spoil it though and the hosts were so nice.

  • "We booked the house for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday with friends and family."

    The house is spacious and bedrooms are big. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, crockery etc. Nice to received a welcome selection of goodies and necessities too. The owner was excellent contacting me in advance with info and at the end of our stay too. Only things to note: driveway is very steep and games room accessed only from outside which we didn't realise. Perhaps we missed the details on the Web page. If we plan a similar event again, we'll be back here for sure. Highly recommend the property.

  • "Spacious, well appointed house."

    Parking for 3 + cars and nice enclosed gardens (safe for dogs). All the facilities you need. Quite residential location with good amenities, local shops, pubs, restaurants, etc within 10 - 15 minute walk. Sandbank beach 10 minute drive (younger members of family walked). Poole town centre is not great but the surrounding countryside and coastline has so much to offer. We could not do it all in a week.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Harbour Views."

    The house was extremely clean and comfortable and everyone had enough space. The teenager particularly enjoyed the annex! The garage was very welcome for our paddle boards and canoe. We loved the balconies and the BBQ. We enjoyed visiting the local area and further afield including the New Forest and Durdle Door.

  • "Harbour Views was the ideal property for our family holiday."

    It was immaculately clean and well equipped with everything needed for our stay. The size and space of the property accommodated all the different age groups, and having a large dining area was fantastic for meals and games in the evenings. The location of the house was good, as it was very easy to get to the gorgeous beaches, restaurants and shops in both Poole & Bournemouth. Steve, the owner, was very good at communicating with us, and responded quickly to any queries we had. We would definitely return to Harbour Views on our next visit to the area.
