Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to say how much we enjoyed our week in your lovely bungalow. Everything we needed was provided and it was beautifully clean on our arrival. The open plan living was great for all our family being together and the beds were very comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness as the photos don't really do it justice. We were lucky with our weather at the start of our week and were able to enjoy the barbecue provided when family arrived to visit. The beach is close enough to get to and return to the bungalow for lunch and a rest before setting out for the afternoon . We enjoyed ferries to Christchurch and Muddeford and the children loved crabbing off Muddeford Quay. Hengistbury Head was also a favourite walk. When the weather was not so good on the last two days we found Adventure Wonderland which the two younger grandchildren enjoyed (ages 7 and 3). My husband and I would be very happy to return on our own sometime as we love the area and would feel very relaxed in your house.

Very comfortable property with a superb living area including an amazing conservatory.

  • 4 of 5

This property had a brilliant open plan living area which was great for a family holiday. It was very well equipped and was in a brilliant position for exploring the area. We only used the car twice because there were so many places we could walk to. The bedrooms were good although the ensuite was small. The main bathroom was very spacious though.

Lovely spacious bungalow with great kitchen dinner

  • 4 of 5

We had very good weather and visited these great beaches by car; Hengistbury Head, Boscombe, Branksome, Sandbanks and we took the ferry to Brownsea Island. This was a very enjoyable week.This property is set in a quiet location with easy access to many popular places and beaches and mini ferry to Christchurch. The open family space is lovely. Plenty of info in the property of local places to visit. Everyone loved the smart TV and films.

Beautiful bungalow in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic holiday at Sans souci. We went with our toddler and 5 year old and the property had everything we needed and is very well presented. The location is fantastic - we spent most days at the beach and it was great to be able to walk there. We highly recommend this property.

Fantastic Family Holiday Property

We had a brilliant time in your lovely holiday home. The open plan aspect, comfy beds and immaculate state suited our family perfectly. We enjoyed the friendly neighbourhood and proximity to beach and beautiful walks at Hengistbury. Thank you so much for all this and we look forward to our return visit.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

My son and his team of carer's stayed at this bungalow for four days. They had a lovely time. The owners were helpful and the cleaner rang me to say they had left some clothes behind and even offered to post them.

The bungalow was beautiful. My son loved the conservatory and was fascinated by the rain on the roof. The beds were so comfortable, and the whole place was spotless and well kitted out.

They had a really wonderful time and would recommend this bungalow wholeheartedly, in fact they want to come again.

Thank you
