Six adults, and four children under 9 all had a really great week in this wonderful house. Space enough for all to relax, children to play, excellently equipped kitchen - we all had a really good holiday. Easy walk to the beach and to Rick Stein’s restaurant! An easy drive to Poole and Bournemouth, and to the steam train at Swanage.
We had a minor problem with one shower which was cheerfully resolved the same day.
We were very lucky with very sunny days bar one, but on that day we went bowling in Poole, had lunch out and a soggy walk on Swanage beach.
We would all heartily recommend this house. Thank you!
Worth every penny, we had a great time in this beautiful house .
We worked it out it works out cheaper to rent this than it would do to get rooms in a hotel for the week.
We will be back!
A party of 8, we stayed for a long weekend in May. The house was exactly as described and was spotlessly clean. No fights over the bedrooms as all were if a high standard. 3 of them could do with full length mirrors but that's a small point. A trip to Brownsea Island using the ferry which was a 10 min walk and supper at Rick Stein's, also very close and the gardens at Compton Acres, meant we did not use our cars, all of which fitted on the drive. On street parking is expensive. The only niggle we had was the shortage of crockery and cutlery. A house sleeping 10 should really have 20 of everything to allow for one lot in the dishwasher and another set available. There were certainly plenty of wine and beer glasses! A great house which we would certainly recommend.
We stayed at "Allure" Sandbanks to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The house has everything that you need for a comfortable stay and it is very spacious so that we could easily accommodate friends who dropped in to join the celebrations. The accommodation is arranged over three floors with two large living rooms that allowed the children and adults to co-exist in harmony, which was just as well with an age range from 4 months to 50! The house is located just a short 5 minute walk from the most amazing beaches. There was a minor hic-up when the fridge/freezer broke down but these things happen and it was dealt with by the management company and the owner efficiently and effectively. Overall, we had a fantastic time! and will definitely be back again. I cannot recommend Sandbanks and the house enough - it was the perfect venue to celebrate a special occasion - its was even hot and sunny for most of the week!

Lovely house on Sandbanks with beautiful furniture and fittings. Some child friendly additions would be welcome such as table corner protectors if you have toddlers. Also lovely wooden and tile floors in ground floor but again if you take little ones slippers or grippy socks a must. We had a few slips amongst our little people. Bins only emptied fortnightly so be prepared to have a pile of bin bags if you fill the house and eat in a lot. Very helpful staff who tried to deal with minor issues of TVs not working and towel rails not working but I am sure that will be sorted by now so enjoy a break amongst the millionaires.
