Snaptrip says

Haven Vista is praised for its fantastic location with beautiful views over Swanage bay, providing a comfortable stay and a convenient base for exploring the town. Guests appreciate the well-equipped accommodation and the relaxing atmosphere, though some minor cleanliness issues and parking challenges are noted.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The property is generally considered clean, but some guests mentioned finding cobwebs and dust in less-frequented areas, indicating room for improvement in thoroughness.

The location is highly regarded for its stunning views and proximity to the town, making it an ideal spot for guests looking to enjoy Swanage.

The apartment is described as comfortable, with a particularly cosy upstairs lounge. However, the issue with only one key provided has caused minor inconvenience.

Facilities are generally well-received, being described as well-equipped. Parking is noted to be a bit tight for medium-sized cars, suggesting some limitations in the facilities provided.

There is no mention of gifts or special touches that would indicate the level of thoughtfulness, so it is not possible to provide a score in this category.

About this property

This property serves as the perfect hub for those wishing to explore Swanage on foot. With captivating views of Swanage Bay, you’ll also be moments from Durlston Country Park and plenty of amenities. Swanage, a traditional coastal town, attracts many visitors due to its sandy beach and an array of shops, cafes, restaurants, and amusements. Nestled against rolling hills, there is the perfect blend of coast and countryside, with walking trails winding through the landscape. Cycling and water sports are popular outdoor pursuits in this fabulous location. Noteworthy sites like Studland, and Corfe Castle, overseen by the National Trust, are easily accessible, with Swanage station's steam train offering historic transport to the castle ruins. These attractions, plus Monkey World and the Tank Museum can all be found within 15 miles.

This terraced, reverse-layout property sits in a tranquil spot elevated to the east of the town centre. A private entrance door leads into an inner hallway with a utility area, and a separate WC. A flight of stairs leads from here to the first floor where you can find the two bedrooms, both with sea views. The first is a fabulous bedroom with a kingsize bed and an en-suite bathroom. Just opposite is another bedroom with a kingsize bed (this can be made into a twin on request). This bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room. A further winding set of stairs leads to the second floor and the living accommodation. There is a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with wonderful panoramic sea views. The kitchen is well-equipped with all you need to create a filling breakfast or delicious evening meal after a day of exploring the local area. There is space to dine just opposite and a comfortable lounge area with Smart TV and wifi.

    • Mr Roberts

    • Mrs Harman

      The accommodation was well equipped and comfortable. Although quite clean, there were cobwebs in the corners of the patio doors and the windows of the second bedroom and the lamps in there were dusty.

    • Mrs Warburton

      A comfortable apartment with views over Swanage bay and in a convenient location for walking into town. We did find parking in our medium sized car a little tight. There was only one key to the property making it difficult if we wanted to go our separate ways
