“Gorgeous sea views and cosy log fires.”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We so enjoyed our stay at Bayview beachside apartment. Words can't describe how amazing it was to wake up each morning and look out of the window onto the endless sea and crashing waves. Swanage itself is such a special place and the apartment is perfectly placed right in the heart of it.

The apartment was clean and tidy and tastefully kitted out. The kitchen was well equipped and it was lovely sitting by the open fire and watching dvds from the good selection of films there.

It was just my husband and I but there is plenty of room for a family/group of friends.

The bed was comfortable and I'm like the princess and the pea when it comes to sleeping so that's saying something.

We could hear the neighbours through the walls a little but they were never noisy late and it was nothing a pair of earplugs didn't block out.

The owners were really responsive whenever we had any questions and were very helpful and friendly and also kindly left us a box of chocolates,which didn't last long!

It was the perfect place to de-stress and there's so much to see and do in Swanage and the surrounding areas. It was great to have on sight parking and my parking skills have definitely improved since squeezing along the beachfront to get to the parking bay!

We loved it so much we were sad to leave and hope to visit again, maybe in the Summer next time.

I thoroughly recommend Bayview.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Lovely location, clean and comfortable accommodation, very good shower. Only down side, no wifi.......although that can be a blessing in some respects! Love Swanage, always have and the apartment only enhanced that. Didn't meet owners as they were on holiday but met a lovely bloke at The Anchor pub who held keys.

“Excellent family apartment”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This flat is perfect for anyone with a young family. It is 5 metres from the sea and a one minute walk to the beach and the shops/restaurants. The flat is suitable for up to 5 people, although can accommodate 7, but I think this would be a bit cramped. The flat is nicely furnished and the bay window looking out over Swanage bay is fantastic. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is ideal with a powerful shower, which is great after spending a day at the beach. The parking space is useful, particularly during the busy summer holiday period, although it is a challenge to reverse the car out on a busy summer's day. I will definitely be returning to this apartment.

“Fabulous, relaxing stay :-)”

Lovely apartment with stunning views - being so close to the beach was amazing!
My little one is 3 1/2 and I had no issues with the safety of the apartment. There were lots of toys and a good selection of DVD's to keep her (and us) amused in the evenings.
Easy to find - although was expecting a larger parking area from the photos of the outside.
Lovely restaurants and pubs within minutes and a real diverse selection of shops too. The chip shop on the corner was great!
Would highly recommend this cosy apartment - the owners are great as well!Communication was no issue. When I experienced an issue with my booking, they were so helpful and kept in touch the whole time.

“Great find! Book early to avoid disappointment!!!!”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We took a winter break to this accommodation which exceeded our expectations in every way. The property emanates homely warmth the moment you open the door. It is spotlessly clean with many home comforts such a games to play by the fire . The large window seat in the living room is a perfect spot to sit and loose yourself whilst watching the sea dancing away directly outside the lovely large living room window.
The beach is on the door step and the open fire makes this property perfect for summer or winter escapes. There are plenty of welcoming pubs in walking distance as well as a great chippy and pottery painting to make a personal souvaneer of you visit (I would recommend this a day or two before you leave to allow time to collect) the local supermarket is also a stones throw away along with the arcade for the kids. You can park outside on arrival and don't really need to get I the car again unless you want to explore further afield.
I can't wait to return! Books up quick though so I would advise peek time bookings well in advance
