“Fantastic apartment, great location, lovely people!”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I stayed at Lazy days with my mum and two boys (aged 2 and 7) - the apartment was fantastic, really spacious and airy, very clean and well equipped (especially with all the little things like washing up liquid and a mat in the bath!). Ruth provided lots of toys which both boys loved and my oldest was made to feel really welcome and played with the owners kids in their garden. The apartment had everything you could need and the garden was perfect - and safe for little ones. Location was excellent - a really short walk from a lovely beach (with tea / chip kiosk) and only a short walk to Bournemouth. We will definitely stay again and would not hesitate to recommend both Southbourne and Lazy Days. Ruth and her family were incredibly friendly and very welcoming - a fantastic break!

“Spacious and in a good location”
Reviewed January 29, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A nice roomy flat with good facilities and very handy for the seafront & Southbourne Grove. I imagine it is perfect when the weather is warmer with the decking in the back.

Lovely short break in Southbourne. The owners Ruth & Phil were very friendly, but not intrusive. The apartment is huge, much larger than it appears in the photos and is well-equipped. Just a few minutes walk from the beach and shops and restaurants - would certainly return and recommend to others.

“Comfortable”
Reviewed November 12, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We were 4 friends sharing the stay at Lazy Days, a very comfortable, big and clean flat, with a terrace at the rear. Thank you to the welcoming landlords living the upper floor flat, we will keep a very nice memory from our weekend in Bournemouth.

“Great House, Fantastic Location”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Thank you so much for such a lovely stay. This is a great house (bigger than it looks in the photos) in a fantastic location - walkable both to a lovely beach + shops and restaurants. Ruth & her family made us feel extremely welcome - especially birthday girl Rosa. Hopefully we'll see you again soon: highly recommended.

“Excellent large apartment near to beach”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Had a great time at Lazy Days, apartment is much larger than it appears in the photos, is great for children as its all on one floor and has everything you need.

The owners Ruth and Phil were really helpful and welcoming, they had also left toys out for our son to play with when we arrived.

Location wise its a short walk to the beac, the nearby play park and Southbourne high street. There are lots of nice cafe's nearby, our favourites were Urban Reef (on Boscombe beach front) and Deli Rocks in Southbourne.
