  • "A really lovely apartment, beautifully furnished and very clean."

    Mike, the owner, met us with the keys and explained how everything worked. Having two bathrooms was fantastic and parking was no problem. There was plenty of room for the three of us and the building .. and street .. were very quiet. A decent Co-op is within easy walking distance. Will definitely be back.

  • "Warm and comfortable."

    Although owner very welcoming, and said we could contact him at any time, we do think that a welcome pack would be useful. For example-nearest doctors, hospital, taxis, best places to eat etc. Plus the wi-fi code more clearly visible. We did have a very nice relaxing holiday and visited some lovely places. Thank you

    Toilet roll holder and basin plug were broken in the en-suite, a few pieces of crockery had food on them, other than that all was fine. Make sure you take bin bags, tea towels and cleaning cloths!

  • "Probably one of the worst holiday let’s we have experienced."

    Certainly not a ‘Dream property’ The apartment smelt musty, carpet’s needed cleaning and were badly stained. Mouldy grouting in en-suite and shower cubicle rim was black, we arrived on the Friday and cleaner came in and cleaned it on the Monday. Sofa was well worn. You will need to bring cleaning cloths, tea towels, cleaning materials as the only things they provide is washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets due to COVID! I would also bring towels as hand towels were grim and also oven gloves. Beds are not that good, my partner is suffering a bad back due to sleeping on a poorly sprung bed. Was expecting a higher standard but generally poor cleaning standards and not good quality beds, bedding and linen. A real shame as location was good. I am totally amazed no one else has not complained as these things didn’t happen in a week!

    Great service and welcome by the owner. It was even closer to the beach than we realised, and the Bistro on the Beach being so close was a real bonus! It was a fantastic base for a Dorset and New Forest adventure. Hope to be back again!

The property

Blue Water 8 is a spacious ground floor apartment in the heart of Southbourne and only a stroll away from golden beaches of Bournemouth's dazzling shores.

This single-storey accommodation has level access from the front door and throughout, making it easy for those slightly less able on their feet.

The bright, open-plan living room offers the ideal place for relaxing together and planning holiday adventures.

The kitchen is well-appointed for cooking up a tasty dinner to be enjoyed at the dining table.

Then you can sit out on the balcony and enjoy the last of the days’ sun washed down with a glass of wine.

Alternatively, you can take a stroll along the beachfront and watch the sunset and on return, choose from two bedrooms to catch your rest for the night.

The master bedroom has its very own en-suite shower room and adjoining balcony.

Wake up slowly in the morning with your first coffee of the day and step outside to a fresh coastal breeze.

The second bedroom is set up as a twin with two single beds, while the family bathroom has a bath, where you can soak away any troubles, with a shower over for another option.

Bournemouth beach and pier is a 4-mile walk along the seafront and Hengistbury Head visitor centre is just also close by.

If you want to explore further afield there are plenty of exciting places to visit including, the famous Sandbanks, Brownsea Island and Poole Harbour accessed by ferry and slightly farther afield is the Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve.

A lovely choice for your next holiday in Dorset.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
