“What a fabulous house...I could have stayed forever!!!”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a beautiful house! Almost understated from the outside, as soon as you arrive at the front door the attention to detail is evident. The spacious lounge and dining area are open plan and furnished to an incredibly high standard - as is the whole house!! The kitchen is well equipped with lovely crockery and glassware plus every utensil you could possibly need. There is a second cosy sitting area off the kitchen which is perfect for coffee, especially on a sunny morning with the french windows open.
Upstairs doesn't disappoint either - one room with bespoke bunk beds, a pretty twin room at the front and a gorgeous double with a very comfortable bed and chandelier...even the bedding is high end! Both the bathroom and downstairs shower room are tastefully fitted, super clean and well maintained.
The garden is really pretty with several places to sit and catches the sun all day...although of course there is a parasol provided and shaded seating areas should you want that too.
There are lots of little extras - fragrant reeds, carefully sourced lamps, mirrors and decorative touches - more like a gorgeous home than a holiday rental. There are plenty of board games and excellent wi-fi should you need it. There's even a trendy "shopping trolley" for lugging all your stuff to the beach. We didn't need the car the whole stay - it's within easy walking distance of the town, beach, pier and Durlston Castle.
I cannot fault this house - everything has been carefully planned and it all worked beautifully! It is tasteful with incredible attention to detail and yet so comfortable and relaxing.
The only negative was that we hadn't booked it for longer.....I could have stayed forever!

Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We (family of 5) had a great time at the house. The beds were really confortable and all the furnishings and utensils of a high standard. It was easy to walk to the shops and the sea front. The owner was really helpful with lots of helpful information.

“Lovely base for holiday”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We really enjoyed staying in this holiday house. It's very stylishly decorated and full of quality items (my husband enjoyed coffee from the dualit coffee maker). The owner was friendly and the house had lots of useful information like local maps and walking books. I was concerned about the lack of designated parking but only once did we have an issue with not finding an immediate parking space. We found the area quiet yet close to amenities and had a very enjoyable stay.

“Superb holiday rental in swanage”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Just returned from a repeat visit to this very stylish holiday home. We took our grown up children with us this time and we all had a relaxing stay. There is plenty of room for a family or group of friends. The house is very warm and comfortable, everything is brand new - it was such a pleasure to stay here. Two shower/bathrooms are a bonus too.

The owners couldn't be more helpful and they have beautifully furnished this house with everything you could need and more. A welcome pack was left for us which is a lovely touch. There are lots of local maps and guide books to borrow so you can explore the Jurasic coast, plus there are books and games for those rainy days. There is a very nice garden if you are lucky enough to stay in the summer.

The house is in a quiet residential area yet a short walk from the town, beach and railway station. There are a couple of handy shops for essentials.

We were only able to spend a weekend here which was far too short but we do hope to return soon. It really is the nicest holiday home we have ever stayed in.
