“Good location, met all our needs”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Helpful, friendly, welcoming.
Good communication prior to booking, arrival & throughout our stay. Reassuring that the owners lived so close by and nothing was too much trouble. Good value for money.
If we decide to stay in Bournemouth again I'll check availabilty for staying again first.
Thank you Katie & Bernie

“Good quality accomodation at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Top Floor flat, cosy, clean, plenty of room. Fully equipped. Wifi worked well. Double bed in 2nd bedroom was uncomfortable, could do with a new one, but everything else was excellent. Parking on the road outside was relatively easy. Perfectly situated for lovely walks down the Chine to the beach with a 'dog friendly' part. I think a nice addition would be a pint of milk in the fridge for guests on arrival. We had a long drive to get there and that would have been greatly appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Thank you for your positive comments. Sorry you didn't like the mattress, they are new this year and we've have good comments about them, but we'll look at them again early next year. If you'd like milk next time you come, let us know in advance and we'll arrange this! We have taken a view that as the shops are only a 5 minute walk away most people are happy to make their own arrangements, but I can imagine after a long journey you might like a cup of tea before going out again! Best wishes Bernie and Katie Fountain

“Very good location i Bournemouth”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Good location 10 minute walk to beach and local shopping/restaurant area. 20 minute walk to city center. Nice fully equipped flat. Nice welcome at arrival. Very good beds! Good value for Money, perfect calm area for chldren (and adults). Approx 1 h drive from Stonehenge/Old Sarum/Southampton. Short drive to ferry to Swanage/Jurassic coast/Corfe castle etc. For us the perfect combination of top class beach, city center and sight-seeing.

“Great apartment”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived, the beds are very comfy and the apartment is roomy and bright. Great location and great apartment. Can't recommend enough.

“Good location, good place to stay”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Firstly don't be worried that the flats are too small. Only three of them are in the house on the website, the other two are in a house two doors up. We had the private garden flat which had the entire ground floor of one of the two houses. They have been sensibly and tastefully converted although the toilet was in a strange location in ours.
If you wanted to cook a meal then the cooking facilities are adequate but there are plenty of locations to eat out (restaurant and fast-food) just up the road in Westbourne. The flat would be good for upto four and although you could get another two single beds in, mealtimes for any more than four would be a bit squashed.
Other posts have mentioned the Chines and Westbourne so I won't mention that - other than to say you are close enough to everything but far enough away for some peace.
If you want to explore but don't want to drive then there are two very frequent and competing bus services and you can get to Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch via a frequent service every five minutes. You can get a day pass for around £4.00. I must mention the open top service to Swanage which goes across the chain ferry at Sandbanks. This is more expensive at around £8.00 for the day ticket but you can get off the bus in Sandbanks and see how the other half live.
As an alternative to travelling into Bournemouth by car/bus you could try the land-train. You get it from Alun Chine beach and it takes you up as far at Bournemouth Pier but use the same £5 ticket on the other side of the pier and it takes you up as far as Boscombe and through the park at Bournemouth. Enjoy your stay. The owners Bernie and Katie live in the next street and are contactable by phone if you need them but otherwise leave you to enjoy your holiday. I hope that this information is helpful to you.

Thank you for your kind review, it was a pleasure having you to stay. Thank you also for your info about the transport, helpful for others I think! I should mention, there are actually two toilets, one in the main bathroom and one by the utility room. Apologies if we didn't point this out. Hope to see you again, kind regards Bernie and Katie.
