Driftwood was a perfect holiday rental and location to suit our family. Having two teenagers with different interests, Southbourne was brilliant. Just minutes away from shops, restaurants and the beach. There was even a beach cafe that I could escape to for five minutes peace too!
The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable; equipped with everything that one could possibly need.
The owners where very kind and friendly and we appreciated the flowers along with the welcome gifts when we arrived.
The local bus service was excellent and we travelled to Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole cheaply with ease.
Plenty of places to eat in Southbourne too- we particularly loved the Tikki bar (Caribean restaurant) on the high st.
We loved our week here and just didn't want to come home. Will be returning. Thank you very much.
Driftwood is a clean, home from home apartment, equipped with everything you need for your stay. The outside area was great for sitting and eating al fresco, with food cooked on the gas barbecue. The location is great, just 2 minutes to Southbourne beach, where you can walk for to places such as Boscombe and Bournemouth. Five minutes in the opposite direction are the shops and cafes at Southbourne. It is a great place for families, with the lovely beaches but plenty to do in the typical rainy British Summer weather too!
A great location for the sea and well equipped. We had a lovely week with Driftwood as our base. The kids cycled along the sea front every day and played in the courtyard every evening. Also very handy for the high street, supermarkets and pubs/restaurants. We would definitely book here again.
A great short break in this stylish, modern, clean and comfortable apartment a five minute walk from lovely Southbourne beach. Very well equipped kitchen, comfy master bedroom with patio door that opens onto the courtyard garden, with barbecue and summerhouse. Our younger two were very happy in the bunk beds and our teenage daughter was comfortable on a sofa bed in the living room, which has a sliding screen for privacy. Very nice decor, pristine but very welcoming and homely. Wonderful touch was arriving to find a welcome basket of essentials and little luxuries. Location is perfect, 5 mins to sandy Southbourne beach, fun in the cliff lift but an easy walk up and down the zig-zag, 15 minute drive to Bournemouth and its beach and attractions. 10 minutes walk takes you into Southbourne for Co-op, local shops and restaurants - we had two great dinners and a pub quiz on Monday night at the Ludo Lounge in Southbourne. Owners very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be coming back here.
We spent a lovely 2 weeks in this apartment. It was spacious, clean and well equipped. The outside seating area was great as it got the sun in the afternoon/evening. It was very well located for the restaurants of Southbourne and the bus and just for walking along the sea front into Bournemouth. We hardly used the car unless we went further afield but the local busses could take you anywhere really. The owners were very friendly and very helpful. There was a welcome pack on arrival and the apartment was cleaned during our stay with new bedding and towels. Couldn't have asked for more. The boys loved the TiVo box and the WiFi.
No need for a car, handy for beaches and shops. Owners very helpful if needed. Apartment clean and comfortable. Outside space a bonus and well kept. Welcome hamper and flowers a lovely thought.
Thanks, Dave and Gwen
What a wonderful apartment, so comfortable, everything you needed was there. Beds made up for arrival, towels provided (only bring some towels for the beach) Welcome hamper which included milk, bottle of wine, biscuits etc. The nicest thing was fresh flowers in the lounge and kitchen. The garden was a great place to sit in the evening sunshine which was very peaceful. Parking was also provided. You could not ask for a better a better apartment or location. A minute from the sea and cafe (lovely for morning coffee), or a 2 minute walk through Fisherman's walk in the opposite direction to shops, cafes, restaurants and buses. We did not use the car as the buses come approximately every 4 -5 minutes. You can go to Christchurch, Tuckton Bridge, Boscombe, Bournemouth & Poole. What more can I say.....this apartment is a jewel and we will be returning next year
