  • Hi !
    Zoe's apartment is in such a great location. The view is a treat and it is absolutely entertaining to watch dogs and owners running around on the large expanse of green in front of the apartment and then a little further is the splendid harbour, with it's changing moods and tides. Glorious !
    Access to beaches and town works really well from this spot too.
    You can cycle to Poole town or Quay along the waterfront.
    Fab !
    The apartment is small and cute.
    All communications with Zoe were just fine...
    We would recommend this place happily ...

  • It was a last minute trip and I am glad and be lucky enough to be able to find Zoe's place. It's stunning and Zoe has been extremely friendly and being helpful!!! I wont go to Cornwall anymore, Poole is my new holiday location!!!

  • This is a great place, good location for views, people watching, places to eat and not that far to walk if you want to get to Poole itself. Our two night stay was great. I will definitely be booking again!

  • Great unit and location. The owner, Zoe, is helpful and friendly.

  • We had a great weekend at the apartment. Once we found it, make sure you ask for detailed directions on how to find it, it is in a great location. A short drive to the beach and a stroll into town along the water.

  • The apartment is absolutely beautiful! The view is just stunning, and the south facing balcony is the perfect sun trap. The whole place feels really spacious, and the location is perfect - close enough to both the town centre and the gorgeous beaches. Had a great night in Ashley Cross too, just a short walk away, and rounded off the perfect weekend with a picnic in the park opposite as the sun went down.

    Zoe was the perfect host. Really easy and accommodating with checking in and out, and more than happy and quick to help with any queries we had.

Born in Kent - studied in Dorset - tried to escape but stayed in Dorset - why would you leave? Especially as I'm into running, swimming, kayaking and the odd triathlon! Bliss! I run a marketing agency and publish a tourism magazine called Enjoy, I also have written a poetry book on dogs - I have two dogs and the area is perfect for them!
