we had a lovely time staying at the apartment.
Moore - August 2016
We all enjoyed our short stay enormously, and found the apartment to be absolutely lovely. Everything one could possibly need was there, and the quality of the furniture and bedding was excellent. The location was perfect for the harbour, and the old town, as well as the huge variety of restaurants and eateries nearby. Altogether an enjoyable experience, which we hope to be able to repeat at some future date.

Our stay at the above property proved very pleasant for our Winter Break. The property was warm and welcoming with a lit Christmas Tree to greet us. The views from the property were excellent and to be able to walk from the house on to the harbourside was ideal. We highly recommend this property.
Brewster - December 2017
Really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again. The property was lovely and clean and the facilities great and perfect for self catering. The view from the bedroom was great and it looked out over Brownsea Island and we saw several boats going in and out during our stay. Poole is only a 10 minute walk away and there are lots of big named shops there so everything you needed to self cater was withing a short walking or driving distance. The location was very quiet even though it was on the front and near a car park although the time of year may have helped with that a little. Car parking at the property is at the rear in a small private car park in a designated spot. This is a very short distance from the door to the property. Obtaining the the keys from Quay Holidays in Poole town was quick and easy and didn't take long to do at all. Poole itself is a lovely place to visit but whilst staying there we also took trips to Southampton, Bournemouth, Brighton, Swanage (using the ferry from Sandbanks) and Portsmouth. Monkey World and the Tank Museum are also a short distance away and have visited these places on a previous trip and they are well worth a visit.
Diane Britton - November 2017
We had a wonderful weekend break at The Retreat and even on a cold November day, we were welcomed to a very warm and cozy house. The little extras on arrival meant a great deal. The house is very well equipped and in a very peaceful area. The views to the sea was lovely and it was really easy to walk into Poole. We left on Sunday wishing we had booked for a couple of more days.
Fionnula Fitzsimons - November 2017
Excellent house, very well equipped, very clean. Well positioned for all the beauty spots of Dorset. Enjoyable meal in slug and lettuce (with voucher) nice touch!. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Fiona & Charles Bates - September 2016
I just wanted to email to say thank you for your excellent customer service, prior to and during our stay in Poole. We stayed at Angel Mews which was a home from home. The attention to detail throughout the property was noticed and appreciated. Your welcome back was perfect and also greatly appreciated. We will definitely book with you again.
Denise and family - October 2016
The entire experience of booking our holiday was both easy and a pleasure as all emails/phone calls were both informative and courteous. The cleanliness and overall aspects of the room layouts in Magnolia house was a credit to your cleaners who managed to give each room the wow factor. The location of the house is perfect for a stroll into Poole either to the quayside or shopping center. The gated drive was certainly an attraction for me and whilst parking was 'interesting' due to the size of my vehicle and the available space it was never a problem. Whilst not seeing much of the neighbors, when we did catch a glimpse they were pleasant.
Mr Chambers - September 2016
Really impressed with the size of the property with 3 good size double bedrooms. The location is ideal for seeing best parts of Poole. It was clean and smart. A better guide to all the gadgets and facilities would be appreciated.
Rob Groves - August 2016

Dear Duncan, Helen, Hannah and Leo, We have had a great time in your cosy and lovely house. We are delighted about its history and how you have maintained it throughout the years. Its location is also wonderful, allowing us to make trips around the area, including Salisbury, Southampton, Stonehenge, Bournemouth, the Sandbanks, etc. We also have to mention the marvellous games room you have created in the house, our kids loved to stay there for hours and even wanted to sleep there!!! All the best for the future.
Familia Martin - August 2017
It is rare that we all get together as a family for more than a few hours and West End House proved the perfect venue. Your beautiful home become ours for a week and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We made great use of the garden seating are and access to the Quay was perfect. Thank you.
Davies Family - August 2016
Dear Duncan, Helen, Hannah and Leo, It has been a privilege and a joy to spend times in your magnificent house. Our family “get together” to celebrate a 70th birthday has been wonderful.
Bowers, Finn and Evans Families - August 2016
Thank you so much for allowing us to share in the charm and character of your beautiful house. Although very much a family residence it is also a piece of history and you should be rightly proud of the work you have invested in it. The house is large and well appointed; all 11 of us fitted in and felt very much at home. The weather was kind most of the time and so we did enjoy the garden. On the one damp day of our holiday, the playroom (a stroke of genius) really came into its own and was a real hit with our three grandchildren. Hannah deserves a special mention for her well-authored history project. We found her detailed research quite fascinating. Finally, thank you also for the complementary gifts. We would love to come and stay again. A wonderful holiday in a beautiful family home, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone from all ages from 3 to 67. Will hopefully stay again sometime.
Jennifer Mckeating - August 2017
Thank you for lending us your beautiful home for our family holiday. The weather has alternated between torrential rain and beautiful blue skies so we have been so grateful to have the run of your house - we've had picnics in the hall, made fabulous camps behind the sofa and have played sardines every single day - such a brilliant house for hiding in. The room shave been filled with joyful squeals of happy cousins playing with your fabulous toys - like living in a toyshop. Thanks again.
Hutchinson and Solley families - August 2015
Your beautiful house has made our family holiday just perfect. Grandparents, children and grandchildren all had the most wonderful week.

It has an extremely spacious open plan layout on the top floor and generous bedrooms to relax on the floor below - perfect for teenagers when they need their own space. Everything in the apartment including bedding and towels was spotless. Arne View is in an ideal location - ten minute walk to Poole Quay with its restaurants and Hamworthy Park right on the door step. Even went crabbing off the jetties you can see in the main picture. Would definitely stay again.
Wayne - 2016
Arne View is a lovely apartment and is well furnished. The weather was great for April, which made the holiday even better. The only query I have is the bedroom doors tend to slam shut.
Overall, we thought it was a lovely, well-resourced flat.
Christine Fulcher - February 2015
First impression was fantastic. Well located and beautifully furnished. Staff were helpful from initial booking right through to the end. Highly recommended. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Rose Fortune - June 2017

Julie - August 2016
A lovely house with a great kitchen. Brilliant family holiday for 6 people. Really well situated to get around to many different places and the Italian opposite the Estate agents in Poole is a must. All in all a lovely week break and we were really lucky with the Weather.
Barber - August 2016
This house was perfect for our rather big family. A fantastic house! Poole has been a great pleasure to visit. A beautiful old town, some nice shops and a lively harbour. Don't miss The Angel, a restaurant just around the corner. You actually can look down into the garden of the restaurant from the bedroom on the second floor! We've visited the Sandbanks, West Bay, the magnificent seafood restaurant The Hive Beach cafe, Corfe Castle, Old Harry Rocks and the adventure park in Moors Valley.
Pettersson Family - July 2016
Very well appointed house all mod cons. As this was grandads half term treat for the grandchildren a good time was had by all. So much so they want to do it again next year. Have holidayed in Sandbanks since 1972. Hopefully the bridge will be repaired next year so we can leave the car in the garage. Excellent accommodation.
Sargeant - June 2017
Thanks you so much for the wonderful fully equipped apartment. We had a wonderful time celebrating my friends 40th birthday. We had travelled from all over England and Wales to be together and were so impressed with the location and quality of the apartment.The attention to detail, decor and cleanliness were exceptional. As too was the service and regular communication from the office before, during and after the visit.The small touches like the welcome pack and flexibility re arrival time were very much appreciated. Thank you all so much. We will be back.

Amazing apartment with unrivalled views of the harbour, especially on a Thursday night for the fireworks. “Tip top” if near Dorchester and looking for a nice pub, then try the Thimble Inn in Piddlehinton (DT2 7TD) Sunday lunch was lovely. Furleigh vineyards was well worth a visit if you like your wine! Great holiday in a beautiful location many thanks.

We stayed at Poppies, Dolphin Quay for 4 days over Christmas and the family enjoyed the break very much. From the initial booking right through till check out the service received from Quay Holidays was excellent, with a special mention to Petra who answered all our questions promptly. Also young lad who dealt with collection of keys on Christmas Eve was very helpful. The apartment was lovely and met all our requirements. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was a great location to visit family, the quay and local restaurants. Made for a very enjoyable Christmas. A big thank you, and we will definitely be back.

Finney - October 2017
We loved our stay at Dolphin Quays. The office staff were so welcoming when we arrived and when we reached the apartment the views from the balcony were simply wonderful. The apartment is very spacious and prettily decorated and the kitchen fantastically well-equipped. It is so easy to get the ferry to Brownsea Island, and the island was the highlight of our stay. The office recommended the Guildhall Tavern for my birthday dinner and it was a great place, excellent food and delightful french staff.

Having used Quay many times we found the living accommodation of Sail Away lovely.

Wall - August 2016
The apartment provided a temporary accommodation solution between starting a new job in Poole and being able to move into my permanent home in the area. It was ideal as a comfortable temporary home, provided easy access to public transport as well as being right in the midst of all the leisure activities the very lovely Poole Quay area has to offer. I'll be recommending it to friends and colleagues.

Lovely compact accommodation in great central location. Very clean and well equipped, we will be back as soon as possible.
Mary & Mel - March 2016
My wife and I visit Poole every year to visit family and friends. In the past we have always stayed in hotels near the quayside but this year we decided we would prefer the autonomy of a self contained apartment. From the pictures online we knew that the flat Looked very nice but nothing could prepare us for how beautifully furnished it was in real life! As well as excellently tasteful decor, it contained every possible amenity we could have required for a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time in Poole plus a nice view of the town (and even the letting agent's office right next door to answer any questions). We had a fantastic time and will definitely be looking to book the same property again when we visit Poole next year. Many, many thanks!
Simon Rawson - November 2015
A stunning house. Perfect for two famelies with kids. Bathrooms in every bedroom, playhose, calm place, bus stop, two shops for buying food, Nice beach very close to the house, and a house with everything. Quay Holidays are very professional. We loved it!
Tommy Pettersen - July 2017
You have a lovely house in a great location. Our dogs have certainly enjoyed the park and beach. We have had a great stay, the games room with table tennis has been a great addition. We would love to return here again and would definitely recommend to others. Thank you for having us.

Highly recommend Time & Tide, and Quay Holidays. Fantastic service, thank you

Mrs J Price - December/January 2017-2018
I have just returned from my stay in the Dreamweaver apartment. May I just say a big thank you to everyone at Quay Holidays. The apartment was amazing, really clean and comfortable. The whole apartment block was fantastic. The location in the town centre was really handy and only ten minutes to the train station was also convenient. I am a non drinker, so the complimentary bottle of Schloer was a very nice gesture. My friend and I will be staying in the apartment block again sometime.
David Wainwright - September 2017
Again very nice flat , please could you tell owner too. We would recommend. Ideal if no car too.
