About the Owner

I currently reside in Kent with my Wife and Dog . The Appartment is our family's much loved second home and we would ask you to treat it with respect and care. It is in a magical location on the Jurrasic Coast. I am certain that you will fall in love with it as most visitors do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

1. My boys adored the freedom of this place and we have been using this holiday home for many years. We have enjoyed spending our holidays in this unique environment.



2. Thursday changeover works very well, the traffic is a joy ! . Such a pleasure to find all clean and tidy on arrival. Having your regular cleaner available for us to employ is a bonus.



3. A unique friendly, homely atmosphere ! We felt really comfortable and relaxed here. We enjoyed the flat and how conveniently positioned it was to all the local amenities and attractions.



4. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay in your lovely appartment. It was just perfect. I must say as soon as we walked into the appartment we felt instantly at home and would very much like to return later in the year.



5. Thanks for use of lovely family home. We had a fantastic week and hope to return.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with one of our daughters and her two children. This review is based on all three generations! The property is in the last building at the tip of Peveril Point with wonderful views and easy access to cliff top walks and the town. The view from the sitting room is stunning and the children loved the easy access to the sea. There was plenty of room for all of us.

We would heartily recommend this apartment to anyone who likes peace and quiet; fresh air; views and easy access to pubs, restaurants, shops etc.

Brilliant will be back

  • 4 of 5

Booked for a week to take 2 eldest grandsons aged 4 and 5 away for their first holiday with "Nanna and Grandad", so trepidation on many levels. What a relief, the apartment was ideal and we were made very welcome by locals in the Peverill community. All on one level so kids close by, only careful bit was steep steps down from car parking area but could have walked down a slope and in through the front door. Spent time on beach and on only rainy day took steam train to Corfe Castle. Lots of fun crabbing [use smoked bacon] and appreciated homely touches around the apartment.......you are really feel as if you are staying in someones home so it was easy to relax , rather than somewhere out of a design magazine. Will we go back? Definitely and grandsons already pestering

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property on the very tip of Peveril Point is truly breathtaking, with the waters of Swanage Bay literally lapping at the garden wall - especially so with the added bonus of glorious weather. The ground floor apartment itself is somewhat old fashioned, but that very much adds to its charm. The lovely resort of Swanage is just a 10 minute stroll away, and offers everything you could wish for in a traditional resort - with none of the negatives that have spoiled so many of its rivals. The house is reasonably comfortable, though the sole bathroom is rather basic. On a beach holiday with our young grandsons we really missed not having a decent shower at the end of the day. The kitchen was adequate for our needs.

Our only major gripe is the requirement to fully clean the apartment on leaving. Obviously, all renters should ensure that any property is well looked after. But in our wide experience of holiday properties in this sector of the market (?900 a week) it seems reasonable to expect a professional cleaning service to be included.

Owner's Response: Thank you. The name and number of a recommended cleaner is provided. A tenant can elect to clean themselves or engage the services of the cleaner; current rate £11 per hour. Most tenants elect to save the cost and do it themselves.

Our favourite corner of the World

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd consecutive year at Waterside, although s a family we've been going to Swanage for 30 years. Our only regret is that we didn't discover Waterside 30 years ago! It's an idyllic setting right at the water's edge, in a relatively undiscovered corner of this beautiful seaside town. We arrive there as an extended family, with grandchildren, boats, and all the trappings, and for the whole 2 weeks we find we stray very little from the area of the property, but just immediately switch into relaxation mode and take in the fantastic surroundings.

The flat itself is very spacious, and is reminiscent of an Enid Blyton novel. Even on the one or two poor weather days, it was enjoyable to to stay inside, reading our newspapers on the large window seat in the living room, and take in the peace and tranquility outside. We also regularly made use of the beautiful down just behind the property, which leads up directly onto the coast path, with breathtaking views all around the bay.

We've only been back a week and are already working out our dates to rebook for next year!

Location

From the Owner

My mother purchased the property just after WWII to provide a home for my sister and I after losing her husband in the Normandy Landings. The location is simply unbeatable. The property is right on the beautiful Jurassic Coast. Views from the seafront garden North across the bay to Old Harry's Rock, eastwards to the Isle of White and The Needles and the stunning coastal path behind leading to Durlston Bay, Dancing Ledge and beyond. Five minutes walk along the seafront takes you to town - but Peveril Point is an oasis of tranquility, even in the height of Summer. It is an ideal base for exploring the Isle of Purbeck and beyond by foot, car or boat. or just sitting outside and doing nothing. It provides a unique environment for energetic children to expend their energies.
