“A fantastic, modern and spacious holiday home.”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Harewood Haven is a spacious house, spread over three floors, with loads of flexibility over sleeping arrangements, which is great for multiple families or large groups of friends.

It is situated in a lovely neighbourhood, close to shops, and only a short car journey from the beautiful sandy beach. It is also on the bus route, giving great access to Bournemouth and surrounding areas. For our group, Harewood Haven provided the perfect base from which to make day trips to the beach and to visit local attractions.

The house is decorated and furnished in a modern and tasteful manner. It is well equipped, with plenty of kitchen equipment and loads of space to sit and eat, either in the kitchen diner or in the large dining room. Enough entertainment is laid on to keep both adults and children happy if they choose to stay in. There is a Smart TV with Cable services and access to WiFi, a Pool Table and Table Football. Outside space is good with off street parking for 2 cars and safe street parking for more. In the garden, a BBQ is provided and there is loads of space to sit, eat, drink and relax. Oh, and there is a large trampoline for the kids to burn off energy before bed!

Harewood Haven has pretty much everything we required for a comfortable and stress free holiday. We could happily have stayed for much longer and would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone looking for a generous and modern holiday let.

“Awesome stay”

I stayed here with 20 other ladies for my sisters hen weekend, David was so accommodating and helpful couldn't have asked for someone better to deal with, the weekend was great and the house had everything and more! Would highly recommend this property to anyone... We will most definitely be visiting again and wouldn't look any further than staying here!

David also helped us with arranging the meat for our bbq from a local butcher which was delicious! And took delivery of our groceries before we had even arrived.

Really can't express enough how beautiful this property was and how accommodating David was.

Thank you so much xxxxx

“Amazing house with a even better landlord”
Reviewed August 20, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Well we stayed here for 3 days with 6 children aged between 1-9 and 18 adults 30-35 plus some grand parents and have to say that everyone was accommodated for. The trampoline kept the kids entertained whilst the pool table and bar soccer table kept us adults busy.
The house was well presented with all the bathrooms with great showers and clean towels.
There was plenty of space and the kitchen was fitted with all the mod cons.
This is a great place for families with the beaches only a 7 minute drive.
The outdoor gardens had a great log fire which we sat around in the evening for drinks.
David was an absolute star right from the day we booked making sure we had everything we wanted and also gave us great local advise of where to go. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world and sometimes no matter how great the hotel is the staff and the way you are treated can make your experience.
I would strongly recommend this house and David to anyone who wants to visit Bournemouth with large families.

“Fantastic house and fantastic host/owner!!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I organised a large group weekend stay at this house and decided to deal direct with the owner. Right from the off, he was just the most delightful person to deal with. He had a genuine want to help in any way and organised, food, drinks, events, recommended things to do over the weekend and even drove us to the beach to find us the best spot!

David was also very straight and prompt in replying to any questions via email or phone and the weekend ended up bieng a fantastic success.

The house was fabulous, very spacious with all the mod cons you could need, lots of beds and rooms etc. David also offered us different arrangements in the house with number of beds in each room ect.

The house also has a lovely garden and bbq facilities with enough tables and chairs for all, including some great deck chairs.

All in all I cannot reccomemd this house and David highly enough, fantastic place and will definately be coming back. Perfect place for a big group whether it being families of friends within 10mins walk from the station and general amenities.

Fantastic weekend, thanks David.

“Great Amenities, superb location”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a great weekend at house which was easily able to cater for 24 people with a BBQ on the Friday night and breakfasts each morning. In a great location to enable us to get to Boscombe beach and then into Bournemouth for nights out.

“we had a amazing time at this home”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

we met the owner at the property who was warm and friendly.
The house is simply amazing, totally comfortable and very close to the sea which the kids loved it.
We spent most of the time in the garden around the open fire and we felt really welcome.
Additionally we spent evenings playing football tables with the family, pool table and the kids having an amazing time on the trampoline.
I would recommend this holiday home to anyone and I am looking forward to coming back very soon.

“Perfect all round renting experience with wonderfully accommodating host.”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Renting from David was an excellent experience with no downsides whatsoever. The house itself was exactly as described online (and portrayed in the pictures) and provided the ideal base for our group of 20 for a weekend. It was in a very clean and pleasant state when we arrived and had all the appliances and furnishings we could have needed plus more. Everyone had a comfortable sleeping arrangement and there was a surprising amount of space despite our numbers. It's situation is ideal, in a quiet suburb but close to a large park, within walking distance of Southborne beach and a short taxi from Bournemouth town centre. Features such as the BBQ, garden furniture, enormous fridge, excellent stove and numerous flat screen TVs meant we could have comfortably spent the whole weekend just at the house.

David was also extremely helpful. Very quick to respond to enquires, he went above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible trip. This included sourcing local food and drink for us at excellent price and even arranging delivery to the house, which saved us a lot of time and hassle that would have otherwise been spent in supermarkets. He was also able to provide some excellent local knowledge on places to eat and drink and how best to get around which further enhanced our experience in Bournemouth.

In short this was the best experience I have had of hiring any self-catered or holiday accommodation and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Plus Bournemouth is a lot of fun.
