About Lisa Cummins


I'm Lisa the property owner. I was brought up in Dorset and spent my childhood enjoying Poole and the Purbecks. Now I have children of my own, I want them to enjoy all the things I loved growing up and also having opportunity to spend time with my family in the area. We love to use the house and like sharing it too providing a fantastic base for a lovely holiday.

Lisa Cummins purchased this house in 2015

Why Lisa Cummins chose Swanage

We spent quite some time looking for the right property for us both in terms of location and the house itself and we loved this house from the minute we stepped in though it looked quite different then! We love being so close to the beach and shops and restaurants so made the decision that this was the area we wanted to stay in. the house has been fully renovated in terms of new kitchen, bathrooms, electrics and plumbing. We redecorated throughout, loving all the beautiful features it has.

What makes this house unique

For us, the combination of the location and the space of the house makes for the perfect combination. When we come here, we can really relax and enjoy what Swanage and the Purbecks have to offer in lovely surroundings.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house to use as our base during the Swanage Blues Festival. We could not have found better or wanted for more. Perfectly located in the centre of the town, with enough space for all of us to come together or take time out on our own. Lovely warm cosy house, with everything we needed.

Bellissimo !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in Lisa's lovely house, it is so light and airy .beds were comfortable lovely pillows and duvets and the kitchen was very well equipped a really super kitchen to work in very light .location is excellent ,you can actually see swanage Main Street from the front door and a few more yards to the see front.we have used homeaway for five years now and this location is one of the best. You do have to park at the rear of the property and walk around to the front ,but you can unload outside the house .There is a slight hill to the house and steps to front door but all manageable we are a group of six aged between 48 -76 The only negative for us was maybe not enough seating in lounge and leather sofa has had its day ,But overall very happy and would definitely stay again

Thankyou Lisa
