“Fabulous base for beautiful part of the country”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The apartment was fabulous and had everything we needed and more. Lovely touches, tissues, coffee/tea bags and biscuits provided. Lovely and clean. Modern. Ideal location within easy reach of many beautiful places in the new forest. Close to Bournemouth. Southbourne beach is only a short walk away. Friendly communication with Pete, the owner. Would highly recommend.

Had a fantastic holiday made even better by the high standard of accommodation,and the extra touches on arrival by Pete and barb, it's close to the beach and the amenities are just at the end of the road the perfect holiday home.

This is one of the best apartments we have stayed in, very clean and tidy. Lots of little extras you don't normally find which were much appreciated - a real credit to the owners.
The location was excellent, very close to the beach. The beach near the Bistro is much quieter than nearer Bournemouth which we prefer. There is a supermarket within walking distance which has everything you need and there are plenty of takeaways nearby.
The weather was warm when we visited and the twin bedroom gets quite hot, it would benefit from a fan but that is my only slight criticism.

Dear Nicola
Thank you very much for your positive feedback. So pleased you and the family had a great time at Blue Waters 4*
Thanks too for your suggestion of installing a fan in the second bedroom during hot weather. We shall get that in place.. I think you were blessed with the hottest week of the year so far. Let's hope we get some more like it!
Pete Snell.

“excellent value, great location”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is an exceptionally comfortable and well located flat, a few minutes walk to the beach and shops. I dont think we have ever rented a self catering home with such attention to detail, including right up to date wifi and clear instructions on how to use everything. It is particularly useful to have things like dishwasher tablets left for you. The sofa is probably more comfy than our new one at home!
You have to recognise that being a flat, the garden is tiny and you may get noise from the renters above, but the price reflects that this is not a country cottage.

“Great apartment, great location”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We've just returned from a weeks stay and only have great things to say. Apartment was spotless and really well equipped with everything you would require for a self catering stay. The location is in Southbourne and the apartment is a 5 minute walk from the beach. As it was out of season (pre-school holidays) the beach was lovely and quiet and clean too. Pete, the landlord was on hand for any questions and quickly responded to any text messages I sent. Highly recommended.
