    The accommodation was very well presented, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Communication before and during our stay was excellent. The bus service was amazing, and we were able to visit everywhere we wanted to without using our car all week, plenty of places to drink and eat within walking distance too. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Main page of listing states "ground floor apartment" however in the smaller print later in the description it is a "lower ground floor" ."

    Hallway has a fusty odour when you enter the apartment. Parking space is beneath two trees which leave your car covered in seed heads, leaves etc. A great location for access to SoBo beach.

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the location. Being lower ground also means we have a lovely sun terrace. The trees have been prolific this year but just about finished flowering and our property management company are arranging for a tree surgeon to visit to trim them back. Property Owner

  • "1 Blue Waters is a lovely find."

    We were amazed to be so close to the beach and to have wonderful walks along the coast in both directions. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped. Even although it is a basement flat the sun comes into the front rooms and makes it bright and welcoming. It is lovely being able to sit outside at the table in the sunshine on the terrace. It is also so useful having a parking space available.

  • "This is a bright, well-equipped apartment that is perfect for seaside holidays."

    It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including two luxurious bathrooms. It was great to be so close to the beach and we enjoyed breakfast at the beach bar every morning as well as long walks along the coast and shorter routes to Christchurch. The bus services are excellent, so we left the car and hopped on the bus to Poole and Bournemouth. There are lots of lovely places to eat, drink and shop in nearby Southbourne Grove.

  • "The apartment is ideal for 2 couples."

    It is particularly well furnished. The only extra item we would have liked was a carpet sweeper or vacuum cleaner. The apartment is bright and warm. We did not use a car at all during our stay as there are buses serving the whole of the coast from Christchurch to Poole within 5 minutes walk of the apartment . We would highly recommend the property..

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed the local area and our apartment. We’ll also get a vacuum for future guests Steve & Julie Property Owner

    The location was absolutely perfect with everything you need on hand, a short stroll to the beach and local supermarket, cafes and takeaway.

  • "This is a stylish modern apartment, it's cosy and warm throughout."

    It's location is good, close to the seafront in Southbourne. We used a bus stop nearby to go into Bournemouth and then walked back to Southbourne along the promenade - a great walk along the sea. Walking the other way is Hengistbury Head and the Hiker Cafe - both worth a visit. There's a Co-op food store just round the corner and we enjoyed a meal from The Indian Ocean takeaway at the end of the road.

    Thank you for your review. We’re delighted you enjoyed staying in our apartment and loved the local area as much as we do. Steve & Julie Property Owner

The property

1 Blue Waters is an enticing, single level lower-ground-floor apartment settled on the coast of Southbourne, Dorset.

Offering a group of four a marvellous base for the explorations of Dorset, the apartment enjoys easy access to the surrounding suburbs with their coastal activities, along with the outdoor havens of the surrounding national parks.

A designated parking place greets you on arrival, so you can safely park your vehicle before heading inside this fabulous abode.

Step inside to find a light and airy open-plan living space that is bathed in the sun's rays, thanks to the bi-fold doors.

Stretch out on the cream corner sofa and switch on the TV to enjoy a movie with all the family.

Move across the space to the kitchen, a space fitted with sleek, wooden units and an array of integrated appliances, which the budding chef of the party can enjoy fixing up delicious meals with.

Enjoy these meals at the connecting breakfast bar or gather the family around the dining table and savour a sumptuous dinner together.

When night falls, rest your head in one of two tastefully furnished double bedrooms, with one enjoying the lovely extras of a TV and an en-suite shower room; ideal for those seeking a little more privacy.

A contemporary bathroom is situated close by and offers a separate bath and a walk-in shower, so you can choose to start your day with either a tranquil soak or a refreshing rinse.

The apartment backs onto a charming, rear decking, where you can sit out with a refreshing beverage and soak up the sea breeze.

Head out to explore Southbourne, a delightful suburb of Bournemouth, where all your amenities are just a stone's throw away, along with access to Southbourne's beach, cliffs, the landmark of Southbourne Deck Chair and the nearby Hengistbury Head, an unspoilt headland that is home to an abundance of walking trails and wildlife-spotting opportunities.

Continue to the neighbouring suburb of Boscombe, a place that is also home to a gorgeous beach with a pier, along with the lovely outdoor spaces of Kings Park and Fisherman's Walk Park.

Progress into the centre of Bournemouth, where Meyrick Park and the famed Bournemouth Parks make for the perfect places for picnics and leisurely strolls, or head down to the city's coast to find the renowned beach with its equally popular pier, which boasts an oceanarium, amusements, a theatre and boat rides.

Poole, Milford-on-Sea, along with the delights of Cranborne Chase AONB and the New Forest National Park rest within easy reach of the property; you'll rarely find yourself running out of things to do!

For a coastal adventure to remember, look no further than 1 Blue Waters.
