The history of Quay

Set up in 2006 with just five properties, Quay Holidays’ portfolio now comprises over 75 homes, from cosy 1-bed apartments to spacious 5-bed houses. Local knowledge is Quay and our dedicated local team is passionate about finding the right property for your holiday. From our Poole Old Town base, we provide a comprehensive full-management service, taking the stress out of holiday letting for second homeowners and ensuring holiday guests enjoy a consistently high-quality service. All our properties offer a home-from-home experience, evidenced by the many satisfied guests who return year after year.
