No.3 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 attractively decorated, well-furnished and equipped to a high standard. Inside the entrance door, the hallway features a tiled floor and leads to two bedrooms, a family bathroom and on to the living area with its southerly aspect.
The master bedroom is carpeted and contains a double bed with side tables and an en-suite with shower, basin and WC. Bedroom two, also carpeted, features twin single beds with bedside table and wardrobe. The family bathroom features a bath with fully integrated shower over, shower screen, wash basin, WC and illuminated mirror, all on a ceramic tiled floor.
The hallway leads to the open-plan living area. The lounge is carpeted throughout with relaxing comfort provided by a leather corner suite and a 42” free to view TV and DVD player situated on a wooden unit. From here, double French doors open onto a balcony offering views to a southerly aspect with glimpses of Sandbanks beach and Poole Bay.
The kitchen features a large u-shaped work surface area in attractive metallic effect laminate atop white gloss-fronted cupboards, and includes two integrated circular sinks and a breakfast bar with two stools. A gas hob with stainless steel extractor over sits in front of a striking glazed magenta splashback. A microwave oven, slimline dishwasher, under-counter fridge-freezer and washer-dryer complete the facilities. Like all Sandbanks Holiday Homes properties, the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped with crockery, glassware, cutlery and everything needed to cater for family and friends. A concealed gas boiler provides hot water and central heating.
The dining area features a smart glass dining table with four leather dining chairs. The kitchen and dining area feature tiled flooring.
Outside, the apartment has one private car parking space along with three visitor spaces for the block plus a large turning area. A small lawn with shrubs graces the front of the property. 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. A communal barbecue/picnic area is located at the rear of the property for all of our guests to enjoy.
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.
