About the property

House in Sandbanks, Dorset, England - Perfectly situated just a 5 minute stroll from the award winning sandy beach and all its amenities

The location, size and specification of this home are what make it truly unique. Although it is only a pleasant 5 minute stroll from the beach, the location itself is extremely tranquil and tucked away, making this the ideal holiday destination.

The stylish first floor accommodation includes a sumptuous master bedroom with deluxe ensuite wet room, 2 further bedrooms (one with doors opening onto a juliette balcony) and a family bathroom. The downstairs living accommodation is extremely spacious, and what is particularly lovely is the fact that all the reception rooms including the contemporary living room and fully equipped kitchen/diner, all open out onto a beautiful, private and sunny Mediterranean style landscaped garden. The patio area itself also benefits from an electric awning for comfort, and patio furniture and BBQ are provided for you to enjoy as much time outside as possible during the summer months. On cooler days, or if you want to relax out of the sun (thanks to the full window and ceiling blinds), then the light and airy conservatory is the ideal place to unwind, and it also enjoys a lovely aspect over the garden with french doors again leading directly onto the patio. Also on the ground floor is the utility/laundry room with access to a useful outside deck area with washing line, and an additional double bedroom and shower room, perfect if you are holidaying with relatives.

‘Bauhinia’ is fully equipped with everything you need for a fantastic holiday, with lots of additional items provided to make your life easier such as beach towels and picnic blankets, so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the comfort of this wonderful and peaceful holiday retreat. Free wifi. Sleeps up to 8 people in one super king bed, 2 doubles and one single with full size pull out guest bed, which can also be made into a King bed if required. Particularly suitable for families with lots of additional baby/toddler items and toys available, please ask. Driveway with parking for 3 cars.

The location of the house is just perfect - It is peaceful and tree lined yet the award winning sandy beach and all the amenities of Sandbanks are just a short 5 minute stroll away.

Sandbanks Peninsula:

The main attraction of this beautiful and exclusive location has got to be the award winning sandy beach. Sandbanks beach is part of the main stretch of golden sand, which reaches all the way from Poole Bay and as far as Christchurch harbour. You will find an array of amenities on offer close by including restaurants, cafes and shops. A wide range of watersports is available at the Watersports Academy next to the Sandbanks hotel, and windsurfing tuition is available at Whitley Bay.

Area Highlights - Visitors should definitely consider using the Sandbanks chain ferry (15 mins walk) to cross over the water to the Isle of Purbeck. Here you will find gorgeous unspoilt beaches as well as the famous sand dunes of Studland.

Also on the Isle of Purbeck, you could take a trip on the historic Swanage steam railway, and take in the beautiful countryside views before enjoying a day at the traditional seaside town Or stop off and have a wander around the picturesque village of Corfe Castle - the old ruins of the castle itself are definitely worth a visit.

Another lovely place to visit is nearby Compton Acres historic gardens – about a 5 minute drive from Sandbanks.

Restaurants - The Sandbanks hotel is a great place for a bite to eat overlooking the water on the terrace, and during summer season offers a kids club and entertainment. Or why not enjoy a leisurely brunch at Jazzy’s café at Shore road, which also regularly hosts live music nights. For a special treat book yourself in for afternoon tea at the nearby Haven Hotel next to the chain ferry. The close by villages of Penn Hill, Lilliput and Canford Cliffs offer an even wider selection of bars, cafes and restaurants.

Across the chain ferry at Studland, you must sit outside in the gardens of the Bankes Arms Country Inn to enjoy the magnificent views over Bournemouth and Poole, or try the newly opened ‘Pig on the Beach’ for some fantastic food.

The nearby towns of Bournemouth and Poole are both very close by.


Bournemouth Beach is the liveliest section of the beach and well worth a visit. It's a short journey away or a lovely coastal walk along the beach from Sandbanks. It hosts an array of activities for families including fairground rides, amusements and a wide variety of restaurants and cafes. A particular attraction is the traditional Bournemouth Pier where you can relax with a drink and enjoy those spectacular views. The famous air festival takes place in early September.

Area Highlights - Bournemouth gardens are particularly lovely to stroll through or sit with a picnic and watch the entertainment during the summer months. The gardens lead from the beach up to the main shopping area with all its high street shops and boutiques.

If you’re good with heights, then book a ride in Bournemouth’s highest attraction, the ‘Bournemouth Balloon’ and enjoy a panoramic view of the English Channel as far as 20 miles.

Kids will also love the Bournemouth aquarium on the sea front.

Restaurants - Recommended restaurants close to the sea front include West Beach restaurant and Aruba bar/restaurant both next to the pier, and The Crab seafood restaurant on Exetor Road.


Poole Harbour is Europe’s largest natural harbour. There is a bustling Quay and Marina for some lovely walks along the coast, and a vast array of watersports available from exhilarating rib rides to leisurely Heritage Coast cruises. Here you will also find everything from jet skiing & kite surfing to sailing tuition to really make the most of this idyllic nautical location. See

Area Highlights: Poole Quay and Old Town. Poole Quay is a great place to visit for all the family, and is lined with restaurants, attractions and shops, including the famous ‘Poole Pottery’. Many people enjoy crabbing off the quayside or just simply sitting in a café and watching the world go by. Poole old town has a fascinating history – you could even join a guided tour of the most haunted locations!

See the Fireworks Display Thursdays 10pm at Poole Quay during the summer

Brownsea Island – Take a boat from Poole Harbour and visit this beautiful and historic National Trust site. The island regularly hosts events for children during the school holidays, and is one of the few remaining homes of the native Red Squirrel. See

Families with children will enjoy the attractions at Tower Park, which include a waterpark, bowling, cinemas and large indoor soft play.

Restaurants: - Try the Guildhall Tavern for exceptional French food (booking essential), City Bay Views Chinese restaurant overlooking the water or Hotel Du Vin in Poole Old Town. Or traditional fish and chips from Poole Quay!

Fabulous house near great beach

  • 5 of 5

3 grandchIldren thought the house was wonderful with plenty of space and really enjoyed heated floor in conservatory, especially on a couple of cold days. Lots of games etc kept us going. Then the sun came out and we were able to explore the area with the amazing beach.

The chain ferry allowed us to quickly get to Corfe castle; a really interesting site and village with lots for us to do.

The house is spacious and modern with a lovely, Mediterranean garden. We would like to see it/ sit in it in the spring.

Many thanks to Anna (and Nickey)

Family friendly in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

No need to bring toys, beach equipment, games as this house has a wide selection. There were 10 of us (includes two babies) and the accommodation was fine. With the weather fair the children just wanted the beach about 12 mins walk.

Anna the owner resolved a couple of issues promptly and was very approachable. The small garden is amazing as you feel as though you could be abroad. We are all keen to go back.

A lovely family home with spacious, light and bright accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and comfortable: well equipped for both home and beach. The downstairs was spacious and bright, and it was a luxury to have the family room as well as a sitting room to spread into. The property is very child friendly with indoor and outdoor toys and books for the children, as well as the toddler/baby equipment eg.cot, high chair, stair gates etc. and a completely safe, enclosed garden with outdoor dining facilities.

The nearby access to the beach, only about 5 mins walk, was a real bonus, and even on wet days, there was plenty to do locally. We were given very clear, efficient arrival instructions and the owner was most helpful throughout.

Fantastic home in quiet location, 5 minutes walk from beaches

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as a base for our daughters wedding party. The layout with large kitchen diner and sun room, sheltered garden and luxurious separate lounge worked wonderfully. The master bedroom is large and the en-suite shower room has a walk in shower. The other double is large, with another double downstairs and a twin room. The home would suit families with small children (lots of toys and beach equipment supplied) or like us a group of adults wanting space with room to get together for meals and evenings watching a film. The kitchen had everything we needed, better equipped than many holiday homes we have experienced. All very clean, modern and most importantly everything works. Thoroughly recommended, just wish we had the millions you need to live in Sandbanks.
