Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Sandbanks View has the ideal location and best views in Poole. It is a comfy well appointed house which does not disappoint.
Attractions: Harbour cruise always enjoyable, Upton Park a lovely spot for a walk, Crompton Acres lovely gardens and team room
Restaurants: Riggers at the RNLI College, St Peter’s Finger at Lytchett Maltravers and really liked TGI Fridays at Bournemouth which overlooks the park and has its own underground parking as well as a cinema complex !

Thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to welcome you back. We agree the location is superb and that huge balcony has to be the best bit.

Yearly visit to poole
We have been using this property as a holiday base for a few years. It’s perfect in every way. Fantastic views from the lounge upstairs, great balcony that runs the full length of the property. Well proportioned kitchen area with dishwasher and washing machine. Comfy lounge area. One double bed which is very comfortable, two single beds. There’s so much to do in this area. You can walk into Poole along the quay, lots of nice restaurants to choose from. A real gem and home from home without the stupid price tag associated with other properties, we find the owner to be very friendly and helpful. We have wreaked booked for 2022. Can recommend without hesitation.

Our annual holiday retreat
We found this smashing holiday home for a week where us as a family can take my 80 year old mother and she absolutely loves being there. As she struggles with walking, she finds just sitting on the balcony watching the world go around just perfect and relaxing. We have driven her as far as Lime Regis and the other way to the New Forest. Our little find this year was Christchurch harbour, it was beautiful there. Poole quay is lovely and if you go on the right week, Poole speedway is a must. Thank you Simon once again for our 4th visit and we have booked again for next year.

We booked for the view and weren't disappointed. Well appointed apartment with wonderful view across the park to the harbor, Brownsea Island and Sandbank. Good location - within walking distance of the quay with its restaurants, shopping center, bus station, train station, grocery stores and Poole Park. If you don't like to walk, bus stop out front for the bus around Poole. The Kitchen in Poole Park nice place for breakfast, lunch of after-the-walk pub stop. We didn't have a car but didn't need one with the excellent bus and train service. The Jurassic Coast Experience (all day tour) offered by Discover Dorset Tours well worthwhile.

Great views and central location and within easy walk harbour and town centre.
great uninterrupted views of Poole Harbour and within easy walk to the Harbourside where there are plenty of eating places and on to the shopping centre, or if you need it the route one bus will take you round the town. Bournemouth is only a few minutes away and Swanage is easily accessible via the Sandbanks Ferry. The New Forest is only a 30 min drive away. If you want to relax then you can just sit on the balcony and watch the world go by

Amazing views great location
We have stayed at this great holiday home a few times now, looking over onto Poole harbour. It's sunny balcony, even in February & March has plenty to see & the upside down house with its patio doors has the sun streaming into the kitchen/ living area for most of the day. A clean tidy holiday let which is a short walk into Poole , where there is a choice of great coffee shops & restaurants. Supermarkets are nearby which we found very handy & the local bus which runs in front of the property is handy for going into Poole & further afield. The accommodation has everything that is required for an enjoyable stay & the owner Simon is keen to make sure guests have everything to make this possible. We would recommend this holiday home to anyone going to sunny Dorset .

Stunning views from a perfect holiday home !!
Sandbanks, Brownsea Island, Purbeck, Poole Harbour - all from the balcony of this superbly located house. The house is cleverly designed with the bedrooms downstairs and the living room and kitchen upstairs to maximize those views. Poole and it's surrounding area offers so much to see and do you'll need more than a week!!

Stayed at this holiday let for 4 nights and wished we were able to stay longer. My toddler loved being able to see the boats from the deck. Upside down lay out which made the most of the gorgeous sea view. Brilliant kitchen/lounge open plan. Well stocked kitchen. Brilliant wi-fi signal which we utilised on the times we could not go out due to cold weather. All in all, looking forward to staying there again soon.
