This property had 'everything it said on the tin' - lovely views, well appointed, excellent facilities, high standard of cleanliness, lots of pots, pans, kitchen equipment, superb en-suite shower, two TV sets, lovely wooden floors and high-quality blinds.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because we got rather annoyed by cigarette smoke coming in through the bathroom on most evenings - presumably because the extractor fan was picking up air from another apartment?
One quirk was that there didn't seem to be a tea-pot anywhere! And, possibly due to me being impractical, we couldn't figure out how to make the hob work. Some simple how-to instructions for the hob would have been helpful. I only mention these points as details. They didn't take away from the general feeling that we had rented a superb place and that it was excellent value for money.
The smoke alarm in the hall made some rather penetrating beeping noises early one morning - apparently due to a fault. But the owner got that sorted as soon as we phoned him.
For those who don't know Swanage, it's a lovely area and an ideal base to explore the beautiful Purbeck peninsular. The property is only a few minutes walk from Durlston Country Park which is a delight. And it's literally about five minutes' walk into the centre of the town, where there is a variety of shops and a good supermarket. Yet miraculously, despite it's ideal location, it is set back from main roads and is therefore remarkably quiet!
All in all, I think that this place would be hard to beat at that price.

Many thanks for your constructive review, we will indeed get a tea pot (we never thought as we throw bags in cups but appreciate everybody is different) and update instructions on the ceramic hob, they can be tricky if you are not used to touch sensitive buttons. We will chat to our neighbour to ensure the smoke issue is dealt with, he is a nice lad. You are very kind to let us know and we re glad you enjoyed your time in Swanage.
