A wonderful well equipped apartment, with a very thoughtful owner. This is the first time we have stayed here and we have loved it. The owner has thought of everything to make the guests stay a comfortable one. Home from home! Thanks Julia! :)
Over the last 5 years we have had many wonderful holidays with our boys during May and over Christmas at Julia’s lovely apartment. This is a real gem of a holiday apartment being ideally located to explore the beautiful Dorset coast. It is in easy reach of crabbing at Mudeford, fossil hunting at Kimmeridge, walks at Lulworth Cove, steam train rides at Corfe Castle or just enjoying the wonder golden sands on Boscombe beach less than a 10-minute walk away. You are also within a 10-minute walk of the shops in Boscombe town to get your bread in the morning (Crusty Bread Artisan Bakery, Roumelia Lane), visit the supermarket or go out for a meal (try Koh Thai Tapas).
The apartment is a real home-from-home and Julia has fully equipped it with everything you need to self-cater and have a relaxed stay. The rooms are furnished to a very high standard with plenty of bathroom towels and beach towels, if required. The kids room is lovely, with their own TV / DVD player and a cupboard of items for the beach. A real plus is having two bathrooms. The master bedroom really does have a hotel feel about it with a huge bed and spacious en-suite bathroom. Julia has really thought about making the master bedroom a sanctuary for the adults and it is a lovely room to disappear to read or watch a film away from the kids!
The kitchen / living room area works well as a communal space. There are two lovely sofas to relax on, cover yourself with a throw and watch one of the numerous DVDs from the collection in the apartment. The kitchen itself has everything you could possibly need and with efficient air extractors cooking smells are kept to a minimum.
If you are looking for a place with lovely views this isn’t it, being located at the back of the building, but once you are inside with the blinds tilted it really is a wonderful sanctuary to hide from the world.
The apartment it is ideally located to access your two parking spaces and there is a communal patio area in the garden where we have enjoyed BBQs or just having an evening drink in the sun.
All-in-all the apartment was a wonderful find that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. We always look forward to our stays and hope to continue enjoying visits in the coming years.
This was our second stay in this very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Finished and furnished to a high standard it is ideally located for the beach and the New Forest with a good choice of local shops only a few minutes' walk away. The owner has put a lot of thought and effort into making this apartment a comfortable "home from home" supplying everything from beach towels to dressing gowns. Ideal for 4 adults as it comes with 2 large settees in the lounge and 2 adjacent parking spaces. We will definitely be looking to stay again.
Good location - is within walking distance of beach. Ground floor apartment with parking right outside. The owner makes every effort to make sure everything about the apartment is to standard offering communication via mobile if needed (we have never needed to do this by the way since everything has been excellent upon arrival).
Ideal for young children (toys/dvds/games/utensils provided).
Don't pack any towels - there are plenty.
Deposits have always been returned promptly.
Would stay for a fourth time.
We enjoyed our stay so much last year we came again this year. The booking system is fantastic and well managed. The apartment is so cosy and home from home. It has all the amenities you can think of and very well equipt. It is so clean and fresh too. The children loved it. It is 5 mins walk from the sea front (great to be able to walk considering how many cars we saw queuing to park on the front)5 minute walk from the town centre. Main supermarket is Aldi and there is a Tesco express in town. Well recommended!!
Stayed at 50 Burlington Mansions for the second year running and found it as excellent as the first time. The accommodation is absolutely 5*, furnishings and attention to detail are superb. The beach theme is carried throughout which we loved. The apartment is very light and spacious yet with a homely feel. There is every possible home comfort there with a selection of DVD's, children's toys, chairs for the beach and all linens and fully equipped modern kitchen. Free wifi much appreciated as was the dedicated two parking bays and only a short walk from Boscombe seafront. It is truly a little gem and owner Julia goes above and beyond to make sure you have the perfect stay.
