The owner, Mike, was on hand to welcome us and show us around the property. It was like checking into a luxury hotel! He had thought of everything we might need on arrival including a cup of tea – yes!
We travelled as an extended family (six adults and 5 children) and we all had quite a long journey getting there. It was lovely to be able to just chill out and relax whilst knowing that quite nearby were three large supermarkets (Tesco, Asda and Sainsburys – take your choice) so that we could stock up on everything we needed a bit later, as well as so many restaurants it was difficult to make a choice. Thoughtfully, Mike had supplied all those small things you don’t want to have to buy for a week’s stay, like salt & pepper, washing up materials and hand soap for example – I hate going to places where they can’t even be bothered to put a toilet roll in each WC for when you arrive (yes, Mike has provided that as well!).
The property was incredibly clean. The finish of the property is lovely and the rooms were very spacious – 3 of the bedrooms were simply huge. We loved the bathrooms and the showers were fantastic.
We didn’t get to use the garden much because we went out so much but when we were there the kids loved it and we knew they were safe as it is totally enclosed from the road.
We ate out quite a bit and there is a huge choice locally – even a Vietnamese restaurant! But when we ate in the house the kitchen was a joy to use as it is so big and several people can be using it at the same time without getting in each others way.
We loved our visit to Bournemouth – the beaches are great and Bournemouth really does have a large selection of good shops.
It was helpful that Mike provided maps of the area as well as details of some of the local attractions. It meant that our week was full of good places to go to.
All in all, our view is that the property is brilliant and full of nice touches. We would absolutely recommend it.
