Quiet. Especially for 2, really a totally successful choice given access to shops, the beach , and walks. We were a '2' and so didn't test a smaller 2nd bedroom ( with generous single beds ) and access to bathroom and loo, just saying. Our bed was totally comfortable, if you must know ! Well equipped and thought out. The owner was obviously committRead moreed to resolving quickly any queries that arose. On our radar when the Purbecks again visited for their undoubted attractions and benefits. Hide

The apartment itself was lovely and spacious and it beautifully furnished, very well equipment in a great location to the town but be warned it is up a steep hill. Lovely views of the sea and hills.

A lovely apartment which is modern, comfortable and spacious. It was well equipped and thoughtful touches such as a welcome gift on arrival were very appreciated. Very central to the town and beach which were only a 5-10 minute stroll away.

The flat is in a fantastic location, 3 minutes walk to the town centre, and with wonderful views. It would be a squeeze for 4 people as the second bedroom is VERY small and little storage space, but it's perfect for 2 people. It's comfortable and well set out with just a couple of quibbles: it's not possible to have a shower without the water goingRead more over the floor etc; and beware the dining table, which has v sharp edges (we have the bruises to prove it!). We would definitely stay here again Hide

Absolutely lovely apartment! Clean and bright and a great size. So nice to have views over to Swanage seafront. Great location to walk down the hill into the town centre. Entry instructions really clear and easy to follow. Excellent to have a parking space too, made it nice and easy after a long day sight seeing. Kitchen was well stocked with cutleRead morery, crockery and utensils. Comfy bed in master (didnt use second bedroom). TV small but not really an issue. So pleased we found this apartment! Hide

We had a great stay at Puffin Lookout. It is a lovely, spacious and clean apartment in a great position just up the hill from Swanage town and beach. It has nice sea views and was very quiet during our stay. Its the perfect base for exploring the local area and all that the Jurassic Coast has to offer. We would happily recommended the apartment.
