“We had a great holiday in the flat. We had a little difficulty in finding it, but, after talking to a local person, realised that we were very close! I had difficulty with getting the key from the safe and even worse trying to get it back. I had to put the keys through the letterbox and contacted the owner who was very helpful. I attribute this to my age and is in no way a reflection on the system.”

“This was a lovely flat in the centre of Swanage, it is near to all amenities including the beach, shops, cafes,pubs, and a bus stop if you fancy using them for a change, as well as a steam train line!! We enjoyed our stay very much, had everything you would need in the flat, and it has a lift as it's on the 3rd floor! Would happily go back again!!”

“Cant really fault it, small but perfectly formed, the owners have really thought of everything! Perfectly located didnt have to move the car and even the parking had been sorted!”

“Lovely little flat, but very hot in summer weather.Access for unloading was very awkward if you have a big(ish) car.Quite often disturbed by local restaurants emptying bottles late at night or early morning.Extractor fan from local restaurant ran constantly and filled flat with coking smells at certain times not always wanted.But these are personal issues that may not bother other guests”

“The Sandcastles apartment was in an ideal location for exploring Swanage and the local area, with the South west coastal path on its' doorstep. All the information you needed to find local attractions was available, including an OS map of the area. Although small, it was comfortable and had all the facilities needed for a few days away. Unfortunately, some of the recommended restaurants were only open on certain days and were difficult to get booked into because of the limited opening times and lack of staff. Otherwise, I would recommend it to anyone planning a break in Swanage.”

“The accommodation was in a superb location and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Just across the road from the beach and in the heart of the town. Plenty of lovely eateries on your doorstep but booking ahead is advisable. We left the car in the space provided and used public transport to visit Poole, Sandbanks and Bournemouth. Also took the Jurassic Cruise from Swanage Pier and visited Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove on the way down to Swanage. Corfe Castle was also worth a visit and had some lovely produce from Swanage market on Friday morning. We have already recommended Sandcastles to family and friends.”

“No complaints whatsoever over accomodation, the apartment is ideally located in the centre of town for shops & beach, it was clinically clean comfortable for two & well equipped.Tea, coffee, biscuits present on arrival was a welcoming gesture from the owners. Parking our car free at a nearby hotel was an added bonus & it meant we did not use it all week travelling on the steam train to Corfe Castle & bus at the station 5 mins away.Swanage is a delightful seaside town, great restaurants (book in advance) & wonderful coastal walks.My wife & I have no hesitation in recommending the flat.”

“Comfortable central location, lots of local facilities and easy access to walks.We enjoyed not having to use the car at all during our stay.”

“It was an amazing apartment with everything you needed. Bed was comfortable.Very handy for restaurants, sea, shops and bus station.”

“We had a great holiday, and Sandcastles was a perfect base for it. The apartment is for two people only, but it has everything anyone could need, it's in the centre of Swanage, and all facilities are nearby. We only ate in twice, as there are some excellent restaurants within a short walk. No issues at all.”
