    Everything is clean, smart and in a lot of cases new but the owner does need to think about getting new, firmer, mattresses in the twin bed room

  • "Brilliant place to stay in Southbourne."

    Quiet area with private off road parking at rear. Clean and well equipped apartment and cosy and restful. Situated just off the sea front but many places close by worth a visit.

  • "Your website advertised a Beach Hut as part of the holiday and this was a major reason for selected no."

    5. We would definitely have selected a different property at a cost that was £200 cheaper. On arrival, the owner informed us that the Hut was no longer available and should not have been advertised even though a photograph on your website still showed this Beach Hut. In view of the fact that we spent £200 more than we needed I strongly believe that you must refund this £200. I await your response.

  • "Good location away from the business of Bournemouth but still within close access to the beach."

    Coop is close and we used this every few days for essentials and as hoc ice cream visits. Rooms were a good size for our family of 4 (two adults two young kids). Crockery and cutlery were plenty. Kitchen is small but worked ok for us. Bathrooms are a good size, albeit in need of a refresh. Lounge was a decent size, needs a lamp, sofas were not comfortable. We had a ground floor flat and this was preferred so we are not navigating steps with a push chair. All good otherwise, in comparison pricey for what it is compared to much more nicer, bigger, better equipped accommodation found elsewhere directly with the owner via such sites.

  • "Excellent location for a beach holiday, a quiet place to stay but the apartment needs an update especially the bathrooms."

    They are very spacious but no hooks for towels and the rails are so old and rusty that it is unpleasant to put your towel on. There is no cabinet or even a single shelf for toiletries, one of the sinks doesnt have a strainer and towels are very worn so think about bringing your own (we just bought new ones). It would also be useful to have some hooks for jackets so that you don’t need to keep everything on the back of the chairs. And please, we don’t need overpowering artificial airfresheners. So just sort out the bathroooms accessories, simplify the soft furnishings and it will be a wonderful place to stay!

  • "No WIFI/Internet connection as listed on website."

    This was one of the main reasons that we chose this flat. Owner said it might be delivered by Saturday, if not, it would be Tuesday at the latest. Well, the end of our holiday was upon us and still no internet. Very poor and disappointing and disruptive for us. Not IMPRESSED AT ALL. We were advised when being shown around the flat by the owner that the immersion heater did not need to be used for hot water as the central heating was ON and this would heat the water. Not true, we all had ice cold showers the following morning. Therefore, from this point on, we ensured the immersion heater was switched on when we came back to the flat late afternoon and switched off the following morning. The only cooking ‘dishes’ were only frying pans and saucepans. Not a lot of good when you want to cook something in the oven or microwave. I had to contact the owner about this and he 'found' us a casserole dish with a lid from one of his other flats. I have enough dishes with lids at home and was not prepared to buy any additional ones! No oven gloves - for holding very hot pans etc when taking out of oven/microwave. Had to use the very thin tea towel. Unfortunately, unable to sleep at night with a window open as the double bedroom in the front only had patio doors - lovely for the daytime though.

Bournemouth beach and pier is a 4-mile stroll along the seafront and Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre is just 1.5 miles walk from the apartment.
