Welcome to Sunset Cabin! A fabulous waterside garden apartment, backing onto the Blue Lagoon and Poole Harbour, overlooking Brownsea Island. A haven for birdlife and stunning sunsets! Peaceful and so close to nature, whilst being centrally located in desirable Lilliput. Enjoy the beautiful view from your bed! Our jetty and slipway and two kayaks are there for you enjoy the Lagoon and experience the Harbour. We have also provided two bicycles for your further enjoyment!
We decided to call our garden flat 'Sunset Cabin' primarily for it's spectacular sunsets but also, because as in a cabin, we wanted to emphasise that there is limited headroom in the apartment. Whilst having a spacious kitchen and bedroom, we need you to be aware that the general height is 6'2, however in the bedroom, (with a ceiling height of 6'3) there are two beams which reduce headroom to just 5'11. Please be aware of this fact prior to booking. The apartment has a fully equipped kithen with oven, hob, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, washer, dryer, iron and ironing board, Nespresso machine, complimentary tea and coffee, milk and biscuits on arrival. There is a lounge area in the kitchen, adjacent to the patio doors, with an electric two seater reclining sofa ideally placed to take in the stunning harbour views to the south west. In the bedroom, there is a King size bed with dressing table, plus a hair dryer. A television is provided in the lounge area and also the bedroom, which offers Sky TV and Netflix. The bathroom is fully equipped with a small shower. The apartment has its own WIFI router, so internet is freely available. We have also recently added an Amazon Echo Dot for playing music and getting answers from the internet.
We are located near the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac, with parking available opposite our house or in the adjacent cul -de-sac. We live in a peaceful setting with quiet neighbours. It is of paramount importance to us that we only accept guests who will both welcome and respect our home and show due consideration to ourselves and our neighbours.
The Blue Lagoon in designated a Special Area of Scientific Interest and it's flora and fauna are protected. During the warmer summer months, a green weed grows in the shallower and more still areas of the Lagoon and at low tides, it can give off an odour.
We live above Sunset Cabin with our well behaved dogs, a Springer Spaniel and a small Jack Russell Chihuahua cross. You do have use of the garden but you will have your own enclosed picket fenced area with a gate, overlooking the garden, which will be dog free! Also please note, that although we don't use the garden much, that it is communal and we do like to give our dogs an occasional swim, and the garden is cleaned daily.
Sunset Cabin backs directly onto Poole Harbour and it is said to be the second largest natural harbour in the world. If you are checking us out on the Airbnb Maps, please search on another mapping application and select Satellite View in order to see that we back onto the Blue Lagoon. As previously mentioned, you are free (at your own risk), to use our two kayaks solely within the boundaries of the Blue Lagoon. Please note that the Lagoon is tidal. Poole Harbour has the benefit of having two high tides to every low, which means that although the Lagoon dries out at low tide, (great for birdlife), the water fills the Lagoon two thirds of the time. Also, please note, that the slipway is just that and can be very slippery. Please take care when using it. The two bikes are also at your disposal and helmets and a lock will be available.
We are four minutes walk from Tesco Express, Co-op, Salterns Hotel and Marina, and Koh Thai Restaurant. There are two cafes, Bennetts, which offers delicous food, home made bread and cakes. Rockets and Rascals is the second cafe, a cycle shop serving drinks and light bites. Also, we have a great fish and chip shop when you cannot be bothered to catch your own!! Slightly further afield, (a 20 minute walk), is Ashley Cross, a fabulous area for restaurants and bars. Poole Quay, with it's marina and bustling harbour front is also close by. Between us and Ashley Cross is Whitecliff Park, a mere 5 minutes by car, as are in the other direction, the wonderful beaches of Poole, Sandbanks and across the ferry to Studland and wonderful Purbeck.
Bournemouth is about 15 minutes drive away with it's associated beaches and vibrant town.
