The property was absolutely amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, the house was amazing, modern, bright and beautifully decorated. The children really enjoyed the wonderful sandy beach that was literally at the bottom of the road. My teenage daughter enjoyed the freedom of walking 2 mins into the high street for her hot chocolate at Costa. We had great lunches in the sun in Bournemouth and enjoyed a fabulous shopping day! Bournemouth has some great shopping.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in The Grand with a group of girls and it was absolutely ideal - lovely spacious rooms and great location close to the seafront and all the action. Spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. We had a brilliant time. The owner was lovely too. Would recommend.

Lovely spacious apartment close to the beaches

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean and spacious apartment close to local beaches. Amenities right on your doorstep with some great local restaurants. A stones throw from Bournemouth town centre with lots of great things to do! The aquarium is great! I would definitely recommend to a friend!

Excellent accommodation, in brilliant location.

  • 5 of 5

My large family group stayed at the property very recently, and we were all delighted with how attractive and comfortable it was. It is tastefully furnished and decorated, in contemporary style, and the standard of cleanliness, and the facilities, are first rate. The location is brilliant, being close to numerous amenities, attractions, beauty spots, and beaches. The clifftops and beach, and local shops, are just a short walk away. Whatever your age, or interests, there is something nearby. The proprietor was extremely helpful, easy to deal with, and efficient, and was keen to make your stay troublefree. We plan to stay again for future family get-togethers.

Perfect family holiday stunningly stylish & modern

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous week's holiday. The apartment is first class, modern, spotlessly clean and with everything you could possibly need- including buckets of space for the children, very child friendly too... My wife was in love with the kitchen... Large and very stylish!

lovely walk down to the beach- really just a stones throw away...also property so close to the highstreet, shops, pubs & cafes. The centre of Bournemouth is within reach as well, though we chose to make the journey by car to castlepoint a great shopping centre only 5 minutes away.

There was a zen garden area at the apartment, perfect for breakfast or BBQs or simply relaxing and letting the world go by, with privacy and a relaxing feel.

Suzie was the perfect host, very genuine and in regular touch with us throughout to answer any questions and ensuring we all had a good time.

All in all, a perfect holiday and we would definitely come back again and highly recommend to anyone. We have already sent a request to book again the following summer!

There are 7 miles of magnificent sandy beaches around Southbourne and Bournemouth area which have been awarded the blue flag of excellence for their superb cleanliness. From the property it is a 2 minute walk to the cliffs and beach. Cafe Riva on the clifftop has a great view 'Bistro on the Beach' a 15 min stroll along the beach.

Bournemouth Int. airport is approximately15 mins drive. Bournemouth Train Station 10 mins drive. Poole Ferryport 30 min drive from property.
