The flat itself is very nice.
The only drawback is that it is a basement flat with no window views. However, our holiday was spoiltwhen the owner kept back £36 of our deposit because her cleaner said there were some black marks on the carpet of the bedroom. We saw no proof of these stains. I suggested it might have been when my wife sharpener an eyeliner pencil and the shavings fell on the floor. I was guessing about this. Apparently it took the cleaner two whole hours to clean these few stains off.
Therefore, I suggest if you rent this flatyou should pack your marigolds and cleaning products and check carefully everytime you use the flat in case you have made a stain somewhere.
Great way to relax on a holiday.
We hired the apartment for a weeks stay and really wish we had 2 weeks. There was everything you could need, so many thoughtful touches such as toys and games for the children, books to read, buckets and spades etc. Perfect location enabling you to leave the car parked up unless you want to venture further afield. and I could have stayed in the giant bathtub every night!
Thanks Janis, your apartment is truly amazing and a great base for us to enjoy our family holiday from. The apartment is located in a very plush Victorian Hotel that has been lovingly converted to luxury apartments. Being on the basement was great as it meant that controlling the heat was straightforward and the apartment remained cool. The apartment is impeccably tidy and we had a mid holiday clean too (with no disruption to our plans). The beach at Boscombe is a comfortable walk of 5 mins from the apartment and also the same distance to the shops in Boscombe. We were able to enjoy days at the beach in both Boscombe and Bournemouth, trips to surrounding areas of Dorset and the New Forest and beyond to Lulworth Cove. Each day coming back to a very relaxing apartment were we could kick back and relax (my youngest daughter particularly enjoying the toys that are in the apartment). It genuinely felt like all needs were catered for at the apartment to ensure we had access to amenities for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
We had a great time and it's just sad that it's over now.
We will definitely return though
We had a brilliant stay. Everything had been thought of including toys for the little ones and beach equipment like body boards and wind breaks. It was so comfortable and really did feel like a home from home. The location was excellent-very easy access to boscombe beach and Bournemouth. The owner was quick to respond in booking the property and any further correspondence. I couldn't recommend it more!
The apartment is very well kept to very high standards. Very clean and homely and just what my family was hoping to find. There is even a harvester close by and the beach is just 5 minutes walk. We completely enjoyed our Easter break and thanks to Janis for the comfort provided to make our visit memorable.
We shall definitely be going back again in the summer.
