Tranquility is a beautifully appointed south-facing apartment. The interior design is a wow. It has amazing, stunning panoramic views across the most scenic part of Poole Harbour. An ideal height (fourth floor) to make the most of the view.The tranquility offered together with contemporary decor and the views are unrivalled. This is a unique and quality apartment. Complimentary unlimited fast fibre broadband and full Sky TV package incl movies and sport. Please enquire.

A short walk to Poole Quay and the many fabulous restaurants and bars. Make sure you book the Guildhall Tavern - Michelin Standard French food at reasonable prices. Severine and Frederic (owners) are really friendly and helpful. Take a boat ride from the Quay around the islands or to Brownsea Island and nature watch or to Swanage. Watch the fishermen land or just sit and have a drink and people watch.

Water sports are popular around the harbour. There is also a whole variety of other tourist attractions.

Sit on Tranquility's south-facing balcony, savour the islands, dine al fresco and enjoy the sunset and tranquillity.

Dorset's attractions are the mild climate, golden sandy beaches, beautiful coastline and countryside. It's weather is favourable, Dorset having amongst the most sunshine hours per year in the UK.

There are the dramatic ruins of Corfe Castle (National Trust), the Swanage Steam Railway, the long sandy beaches of Studland and the fascinating Sandbanks Chain Ferry (single car crossing approx £3) within a short distance. Treat yourself to tea at The Haven Hotel with its consevatory overlooking the entrance to Poole Harbour and the chain ferry.

Spend some time on the beaches of Sandbanks Peninsula, Poole, famous for having some of the most expensive properties in the world. Drop into Jazzy's Cafe (Shore Road) on a Sunday morning and read the papers and people-watch. See the Fireworks Display Summer Thursdays 10pm at Poole Quay.

For those interested in watersports, there is windsurfing and kitesurfing tuition available at Whitley Bay, Sandbanks; sailing tuition at Rockley Watersports, Hamworthy, Poole; scuba diving off Swanage and sea fishing trips from Poole Harbour.

Water-skiing, wakeboarding and parasurfing also take place in Poole harbour. Mountain biking is a popular activity in the nearby Purbeck Hills.

Thomas Hardy based his many novels, eg The Mayor of Casterbridge, in Wessex - the Dorset countryside. An interesting read before bedtime!

Poole has 41 miles of cycle network and the various routes cater for all ages and abilities of cyclists.

Brownsea Island, a National Trust property, can be accessed via regular pleasure boat from Poole Quay, where you can also find boats to neighbouring Swanage, Bournemouth and Sandbanks.

Also from Poole Port, regular ferries operate to Jersey, Guernsey and France. Day trips are available.

This was our 3rd year in this beautiful apartment(see review from out first stay in previous reviews)we love this apartment yes the carpets etc are cream but we live as we do at home and don't let it bother us,in this day and age if you were to have an accident stain removal is easy and I'm sure Ruth would have no problem dealing with it. We have had our grandchildren aged 2 and 5 stay with us for part of the holiday for the last 2 years and they love it. The view is lovely and we love watching the boats etc on the sea, will be booking again for next year

We had a most enjoyable holiday in Tranquility four adults and a two year old, there was everything in the apartment you could need all good quality. The apartment had a lovely bright and airy feel with far reaching views and only a short stroll from Poole Quay. Ruth the owner was very helpful and keen to ensure that there was nothing you needed, we would certainly stay again.

Just as described a contemporary appartment, well furnished with fabulous views.
tranquility is well positioned just a short walk from the Quay with lots to see from the balcony. it has everything you could possibly need. beautifully furnished. took my Mother n her nineties for a well earned week away and we had a lovely time. Convenient parking in the secure covered carpark just a short walk from the lift up to the 4 th floor. all very accessible. Ruth explained how everything worked . Plenty of hot water and easily controlled heating not that we needed to use it as the appartment kept nice and warm.The views especially of the evening dinghy racing kept us enthralled, we didn't get a chance to read a book!Definitley take the boat trip around the harbour and toll ferry from Swanage it I s a great experience. All so lovely and flat in the area ideal for walking! Would definitely return.if there was anything I could suggest for an improvement it would be scatter cushions for the settee as the settee is rather deep for short legs! Thank you Ruth.

Liked best: Position and design of appartment
Liked least: Possibly that the room with the onsite shower ideal for my mother but the bed was rather low so she ended up in the other room with the bed that was a little high for her but thi is not a negative that should put you off.

beautiful apartment, have already booked again for this year
we loved this apartment, the living area is bright, spacious and modern with a well equipped kitchen, everything we needed, lovely large sofa ( bigger than it looks in the pics) leading to the lovely sun trap balcony with great views across the harbour and marina. The superking bed was so comfortable with quality linen infact everything is of a high standard. I have a thing about cleanliness and it was spotless no sign of previous guests anywhere. Ruth and John were very welcoming and gave us all the info we needed. The vibrant Quay is just a short walk, lovely for an evening walk and the town is just off the quay. This was our first time in this area of Dorset, we loved the area lots to do and see cant wait to go back this summer.

We had a wonderful break in this apartment. Ruth made us very welcome and there was everything we needed in this modern spacious apartment. It has a lovely outlook from the balcony and the quay and town centre is a short stroll away. We will be booking this apartment again.

First Class Accomodation.

First Class Accomodation.
Like me if you are fussy about where you stay, then Tranquility is for you. It's a beautiful, airy, clean, light, bright apartment finished to a very high standard. The bedding and towels are luxurious and the owners have left everything you could possibly need. It felt like home from home with the added bonus of the stunning views across the harbour. Great location and 5 minute walk to some lovely eating places and tea rooms and shops. Ruth and John were most welcoming and only too happy to make us feel comfortable and check if there was anything else we needed. I have a 10 month old baby and it was very easy as the travel cot with bedding and high chair were provided for us. I couldn't fault this place and really hope to go back sometime soon.

We stayed in this apartment with our 2 year old son.The quality of the apartment, the harbour views, the cleanliness, the owner's hospitality were all amazing, We found the apartment very child-friendly. The apartment was ready for us at 2pm which was great for settling in our little one. We had such a relaxing break and are looking forward to going back.

Light, airy, warm and comfortably furnished apartment. Short walk to Poole town centre or frequent bus service nearby. Lovely views over the yacht club and river with some memorable sunsets.
Excellent choice for those wishing to self cater due to the range and quality of crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils. Even the kitchen knives were plentiful and sharp! We were able to prepare Christmas lunch as easily as being at home.
We travel extensively and always try to select high quality accommodation. This apartment was amongst the best we have stayed in and represented good value for money.

This is the first time we have spent a two week holiday in the UK. This apartment caused us to revise our thoughts on air travel & all the hassle.
The apartment was very well kitted out , lovely position with magnificent views over Poole & the marina.Just sit & watch the sea & sailing.
Very well positioned for Poole Quay which is always a hive of activity
Bournemouth beach & shops within easy reach
Sandbanks well worth a walk round if only to see how the other half live !
All in all one of our best holidays ever
