Double room in Penthouse apartment with harbour views across Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island & the Purbecks. Our friendly & cosy apartment is 5-10min walk from Ashley Cross village & Parkstone Train station (direct London link).

In shared space there is a large balcony, 55" 4K smart TV ...2 friendly cats & marine aquarium.
You have full access to your large double room, with large private bathroom. I currently live in the property, in the front bedroom. So lounge & kitchen are shared.

The space

A stunning 500 litre marine fish tank! Clownfish, purple tang.. fox face rabbit fish. I would love to tell you all about it.
It's a beautiful and light spacious apartment with lots of sun all day. The large balcony is a perfect place to relax with a sundowner drink.

Guest access

You have a large double room with large private bathroom, this has a bath & shower.
Your room will have a clothes rail, DVD player, 42" TV in (this isn't connected to TV/cable but you can connect your laptop if you bring a HDMI lead), but you are welcome to use the lounge and kitchen as needed. Please keep food prep tons minimum, there are so many lovely places to go& eat.
I live in the front bedroom, so the lounge & kitchen we share.
I will give you a key so you can come & go as you please :)
The bedrooms are in opposite ends of the flat. But if you do come back after 11pm especially on a week night, I would appreciate it if you don't go to the lounge/kitchen as the cats sleep in the lounge at night & it will wake me up.
They are timid cats at first, but very friendly. They will never bite or scratch.

I would love to help you with any advice about local sights/restaurants & if I am free happy to show you around myself.

Shona was a great host! Her apartment is beautiful, clean and spacious with two lovely cats (Buster and Minstrel) that my partner and I immediately fell in love with. Shona was able to provide plenty of information about local eateries and shops, and obviously has strong enthusiasm for the area she lives in. She even has a welcome/information pack for guests. After almost a week spent working outdoors, this was the perfect way of relaxing before our journey back up to Leeds, Yorkshire. I cannot recommend Shona enough as a host.

Great apartment with good location. Close to train station and Ashley Green (lots of nice bars.) About 30mim walk from Poole centre or 5/10 min drive. Clean, modern apartment. Shona was a great host; gave us loads of recommendations, really friendly! Cats really friendly too. Enjoyed the visit.

Shona made sure our stay was enjoyable. She communicated well before our arrival and also provided excellent information on the local area. A map was provided highlighting excellent bars and restaurants within walking distance for the apartment. Lovely area, I would highly recommend staying.

Exellent location to go to Poole or Bournemouth, always parking outside and having a lift was a great bonus for us. Being able to use the kitchen and balcony was really fab.

My partner and i had a lovely stay at Shona and Justin's apartment. The views were stunning, the flat was very modern, clean and comfortable. The cats were very friendly and joined us out on the terrace whilst we enjoyed the evening sunset! Shona and Justin were flexible with check-in and check-out times and communication was execllent throughout. We would definitely recomend and hope to return in the future!

This was our very first Airbnb trip, so we were nervous about sharing someone's home. We needn't have worried though because our lovely host Shona was so lovely, and made our three night stay brilliant! Communication from Shona and Justin was swift and welcoming even before we arrived. You must (as we do) love cats, they are a big part of this lovely home. Thank you guys, for a fabulous stay!
