“Fabulous, spacious apartment in a lovely area”
Reviewed October 4, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

'Lifes a Beach' apartment
Fabulous apartment located close to the beach - Spotlessly clean and spacious. The apartment is really well furnished and included everything we needed for a 3 night stay. We were a group of 8 and found we had plenty of space to relax in the apartment. The kitchen was well equipped as were the bedrooms - lots of storage and really comfortable beds. The apartment is in a lovely residential street which is only a 5 minute walk to the beach , bars and restaurants. James was really helpful at check in giving us all the information we could need for our stay as well as being flexible with the check in for us. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED and will be recommending you to friends and family - Thank you

“Chilled holiday - from home to home”
Reviewed August 24, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Thank you James for providing a super base for our holiday. The apartment was everything we could have wished for. Having access to tennis courts was great for the kids and we were by one of the best beaches near Bournemouth. Excellent for extended and large families having fun together.

“Ideal apartment and beach hut combo with handy parking!”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We were a party of three adults and three children. We paid an additional charge to hire James T's beach hut which is located on Undercliff Drive only a few feet from the beach about midway between the two piers. It was well equipped with chairs, wind break, bats, balls etc., with a nearby tap and with public WC's not far away, half way back to Boscombe Pier.
The apartment was beautifully decorated and very clean with an airy "New England" seaside ambience. Guests are invited not to wear shoes inside to protect the light carpets in all areas except for the kitchen and bath/shower rooms. James provides a meticulously prepared handbook as well as a range of brochures for local attractions. Car parking (for two vehicles) for the apartment's guests is located to the rear and was respected at all times by the building's other tenants. The building appears to have been purpose built for apartments with a lift to the first and second floor. The holiday apartment is on the first floor. The building is located in a quiet street off the bustling Christchurch Road. Even with a pushchair one could stroll to the main pier along the undercliff in around half an hour to forty minutes.

“Life's a beach, it is here”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This clean, comfortable and very well equipped apartment is a superb base for visiting all that there is to offer in this beautiful part of the country. It has everything you need to keep a family comprising of three generations well entertained and cared for. After a long day visiting and exploring it is good to return to a welcoming and comfortable base you can call your own. Thank you James for your welcome and constant availability, a great time was had by all. We will visit again.

“Ideal for us!”
Reviewed November 5, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed for a long weekend at the end of half term and the apartment had everything we needed. It is situated in a quiet location with close access to the cliff, beach and some wonderful walks. There was good communication throughout with James who greeted us and he was on the end of a phone if you needed him. There were plenty of games and DVD's if you chose to stay in and plenty of places to eat nearby. We enjoyed a walk to Bistro on the Beach for Sunday brunch in Southbourne which we were able to book in advance and would recommend it as it is open all year.
A lovely weekend in a clean and spacious apartment - Thanks James

Stayed with 7 friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. Very comfortable with plenty of space
Well equiped kitchen with everything you need to cater for a group.
We found the dishwasher leaking on the first evening This was dealt with efficiently
The location is within easy reach of Bournmouth , with a pleasant walk along the beach.
Would definitely return. A real home from home.
