JUST FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
Just amazing, the place is absolutely gorgeous, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and in a wonderful position. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, Helen even answered me on Easter Saturday and helped me make last minute plans for my "ever so slightly difficult" CEO to stay. There is nothing you could fault, and we will definitely use again (and again!) Do not hesitate to book if you get the chance.

FIRST VISIT TO SANDBANKS

  • 4 of 5
We found everything about 'The Haven' was as described on the website. On arrival we were surprised to note that the property was a bungalow but this turned out to be irrelevant the moment we stepped inside. The property was immaculate, bright and airy,very well laid out and converted to a very high standard, ideal for our party of 4 adults and 2 children.
The decoration was faultless, the beds very comfortable with top quality bed linen and towels. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious.
We found the outside decking a real bonus and an added surprise was the lovely garden and good size lawn which enabled the children ( and adults!) to play some ball games.

We particularly enjoyed taking a boat ride to Brownsea Island and the ferry to Studland and having the benefit of a 10/15 minute leisurely walk to the lovely local beaches.

Helen provided excellent customer service and was always anxious to ensure our stay was an enjoyable experience for us - which it was. We hope to return and would certainly recommend 'The Haven' to anyone wishing to holiday in the area.

WONDERFUL PROPERTY IN DREAM LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property in April 2014 and cannot recommend it highly enough. Helen was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and even provided us with a welcome basket of goodies on arrival. The property is exactly as described, clean with a modern comfortable interior and a lovely outdoor deck and garden to enjoy the morning and afternoon sunshine. Ideally located in the middle of Sandbanks, just a short walk to the harbour and the stunning sandy beaches !

A FANTASTIC LOCATION AND IMMACULATE HOME.

  • 5 of 5
We have rented a number of holiday properties over the years and The Retreat was one of the best. We received a lovely warm welcome from Helen who is a fantastic and attentive host. We booked The Retreat for a relaxing short break and that is exactly what we got. It served as a very comfortable, spotlessly clean, stylish and well equipped base from which to explore the area. It is a fantastic location with the beaches, chain ferry and ferry to Brownsea Island on the doorstep and the beautiful Purbeck coastline just a short drive away. Highly recommended.
