Sandbanks has been the recipient of some wonderful feedback this year. If online consumer recommendations are the way forwards, as we are led to believe, then Sandbanks must be very happy. The summer season has yet to begin.
Firstly, Tripadvisor users voted Sandbanks into the Travellers Choice Top 10 UK Beaches 2013. Beach fans voted where they are heard by one of the worlds most popular unbiased holiday review websites.
More recently The Good Beach Guide included Sandbanks in its Good Beach recommendations for 2013. The Sunday Times also recommended it as a good guide if you are thinking of buying a coastal home. Published by the Marine Conservation Society, the Guide is rich in environmental details, and it rates over 700 beaches nationwide by water quality.
When Sandbanks was famously flagged as the fourth most expensive place to live in the world way back in 2008, it opened the door to a wave of media attention focused on its superhomes and luxury lifestyle. But there is a fresh appeal to Sandbanks and the story is now being told by a new powerful beach-loving voice.
That voice is reaching more home buyers seeking to tap into the appeal of the Sandbanks coastline. What’s more, if you look at the sold house price data for homes in Sandbanks over the last twelve months, there have been a healthy number of holiday home sales between £300,000 to £500,000. Yes, the contemporary waterside homes are significantly more, but the peninsular also offers many ideal modern family holiday apartments too.
Local investment in amenities like the cafes, playgrounds, lifeguards’ facilities and watersports really has made the area a perfect family destination whether you holiday there or take a step further and purchase a holiday home.
On a final note voting in favour of Sandbanks, we have been enjoying these wonderful coastal photographs, by ‘manonabeach‘ posted onto his facebook page. Asking the question, “what does the beach mean to you?”, he answers it both visually and verbally through a series of photographs and online interviews. Could this be yet more approving voices we hear from the seashore?
