  • Richard has been a great host, very flexible with our arrival time and extended check out, open and friendly and a pleasure to chat with. Richard has given us great tips on the places to visit in the surroundings and indicated us with the help of a map the best way to get there. We were welcome to use the entire flat including the kitchen at any time and Richard has arranged also a brand new cot for our son and been very friendly with our Yorky. Thanks for everything Richard and hopefully see you at our next visit to the best beaches of England !

  • My two night stay as Richard's guest was comfortable & pleasant. Features such as a desk, door hooks, sufficient plug sockets & mirror were very welcome. Richard is a friendly & helpful host. Modern, clean & tidy, his home is super handy for access to the harbour front, town centre & is just a short walk along the waterfront to the RNLI Training College where I enjoyed a delicious value for money lunch & dinner with a view of the harbour. Enjoy your stay!

I am a retired civil servant, Poole born and bred, although I have lived and worked away at times. I am divorced and living alone and I am very happy living in Poole because, as well as being my home town, it caters for a wide range of interests and in particular it offers sailing on its magnificent harbour. I am an active member of a local yacht club where I racing in my dingy and crew on other members cruisers. Being of a gregarious nature, I particularly enjoy the social side of club life, . I play in a band with a group of old friends. We range from 'bluegrass' through 'country', 'folk' and a bit of 'rock and roll'. I am an avid listener to the BBC with my default station being Radio 4 closely followed by Radio 3. I also enjoy television but I am rarely at home to watch it.
