About the property

2 bedrooms, sleeping 6 guests

No. 4 Sandcastles is on the first floor (no lift) of a modern block of seven holiday apartments on Sandbanks’ main Banks Road. It is accessed via a secure carpeted lobby and stairwell. The apartment is decorated, furnished and equipped to a high standard. Inside the front door, the hallway features light wood effect laminate flooring extending to the living area. Doors lead to two en-suite bedrooms.

The spacious carpeted master bedroom features a King size double bed with side tables, fitted wardrobes with double sliding doors, wall-mounted flat screen free to view TV, window to the rear aspect, and a large en-suite bathroom. The en suite is tiled floor to ceiling and offers a bath with shower over, glass shower screen, hand basin, WC, heated feature towel rail and illuminated mirror with shaver point and vinyl flooring.

Along the hallway, bedroom two is a family-sized room designed to accommodate up to four in comfort, with one King size double bed and two white wooden bunk beds – both of a generous 3-foot width with built-in ladder. The fully carpeted room also features fitted wardrobe with plenty of hanging and storage space, and a window to the side aspect. The compact en-suite features a cubicle with Mira shower, bijou hand basin, WC, heated chrome towel rail, illuminated mirror with shaver point and vinyl floor.

The smart open-plan main living space comprises a modern kitchen, dining and lounge area. The kitchen features an extensive range of red wall and base units providing storage for cookware, utensils, crockery, glassware and cutlery, topped by an expansive solid walnut work surface with built-in ceramic hob. Facilities include an Indesit electric oven, concealed Indesit under-counter fridge and freezer, slimline Belling dishwasher, extractor hood, integrated eye-level combination microwave, and concealed washer-dryer for laundry. There are sea glimpses from the kitchen window. A concealed gas boiler provides hot water and central heating.

The dining area features a solid wood dining table with six smart rattan dining chairs and matching sideboard storage unit.

The lounge has a pair of brown leather sofas, a low-level coffee table, tall occasional table, and a corner media unit housing a Samsung flat screen 42” free to view TV and DVD player. From the lounge, double French doors open to a balcony with outside furniture, offering views south to Sandbanks beach and sea glimpses towards the Isle of Wight.

Outside, the apartment has one car parking space along with three visitor spaces for the block plus a large turning area. A communal barbecue/picnic area is offered for all of our guests to enjoy. To the rear, an external shower is ideal for freshening up from the sandy beach while a power wash system provides the same convenience for mountain bikes or windsurfing gear. A beach hut themed lockable shed unit alongside the parking bay provides storage for equipment and beach accessories.

Sandcastles is conveniently situated on Banks Road – part of the main route that loops around the Sandbanks peninsula via the Haven Hotel, Sandbanks Chain Ferry and Poole’s Royal Motor Yacht Club. The modern block is less than 200 metres from the shops, a bistro café, the renowned Rick Stein restaurant and the Sandbanks central beachfront area with its Blue Flag certified bathing, level beach access, visitor attractions and many holiday facilities. Less than a kilometre to the east along the curved inner harbour leads directly to the famed windsurfing and kite-surfing mecca and shallow waters of the Whitley Lake area of Poole Harbour. Less than 700 metres to the west is the Sandbanks Chain Ferry taking you across to Shell Bay, Studland and the Isle of Purbeck or a ferry to Brownsea Island.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from staying in Dorset. The accomodation is in such a great position over the road from Sandbanks beach. I slept so well here, usually when we go on holiday I have trouble sleeping but the main bedroom is so comfortable. Our dog loved it too being on the ground floor was ideal. Only sad part was we have had to come home, as we really grew fond of this place as the week wore on.
