    Additional amenities & feature info
    The apartment offers you the chance to enjoy all the charm and facilities of a little seaside town within a few minutes walk and when you're tired at the end of a lovely summer's day you can retire to your own apartment, relax and watch the world go by from the seclusion of your own home.

    If you like, you can walk out for a meal in one of the many town's restaurants/pubs or venture further afield to a village inn or take the car ferry across the mouth of Poole Harbour to Bournemouth and Poole and take in a show/film and enjoy a late night meal afterwards.

Fantastic weekend away. The apartment was just as it had looked on the website it could not have been equipped better, everything was there that we needed. We felt very at home, it was warm, hot shower, plenty of storage and fantastic views adn a well equipped kitchen. We will return again more

Brill flat; quirky, quiet, central, can't beat the price. All great until last 1/2 hour before leaving when I take out the hoover and it takes over an hour to clean what should have been a quick run-through, as we had no sand, mud or stains. The hoover was a museum-piece from the 1960's that almost let more dust out... more

Management response:

I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay in Island View and must apologise for the "antique" hoover which marred your final hour in "the best flat in Swanage". The offending item was replaced early in 2013 with a modern, efficient and time-saving vaccuum cleaner :-) more

Recently returned from a mid week break at the Island view and we must say that the stay definitely lived up to all of the reviews previously read. Regarding winter breaks, thanks to Ann's preparation, the apartment was easily kept warm whilst cold winds and snow fell outside. When not reading or just relaxing in the apartment, the walk to... more

Management response:

I'm so very glad that Island View provided a warm and cosy base for your winter break and that Swanage's eateries came up trumps! more
