Sea view apartment
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A luxurious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with extensive sea views from all rooms and your own large south-facing private terrace.
Located midway between Bournemouth and Christchurch, this apartment is 5 minutes walk from the Blue Flag awarded sandy beaches of Boscombe pier and beachside cafes, and has a range of excellent restaurants and bars in easy reach. It is located within Burlington Mansions, a prestigious Victorian hotel built in the 1850s that has been converted into apartments whilst maintaining a number of the original features including the foyer and shared entrance. The apartment has been fitted with new high quality furnishings for the 2014 season.
The master bedroom has a kingsize bed, fitted wardrobes, a dressing table and an en-suite shower room. There is direct access onto the terrace (so you have your morning coffee in bed watching the sea, then take breakfast and a book onto the terrace). The second bedroom is fitted with twin 3' single beds and fitted wardrobes to provide plenty of storage space and also has direct sea views.
The main living area has a large 3 seater leather sofa, a pair of armchairs and a dining table and chairs which seats 4. There is a 40" flat-screen TV with FreeView channels and a Blu-ray & DVD player. There is also unlimited wi-fi to use in the apartment.
There is direct access onto the large, south facing roof terrace which is for your exclusive use. The terrace also has a dining table and chairs seating 4 for alfresco lunches (breakfasts, dinners), and we have provided blankets for those early morning or late evenings out there. There are also deckchairs and cushions for the outdoor seating provided to make things even more comfortable.
The kitchen is well catered with a gas hob, an electric oven, a integrated large fridge-freezer and a dishwasher, as well as a washing machine/tumble drier. There is plenty of crockery and cutlery provided, including smaller versions for younger guests and of course all the usual kitchen accessories. The kitchen is accessed off the main living area but is fitted with doors that can be closed off to separate it if required.
The main bathroom has full size bath for a long soak after a day out and about.
All rooms are south facing with sea views.
The flat is on a single level, located on the first floor and serviced by a lift and there are 2 allocated parking spaces for guests' use.
There is a travel cot, bed guard and high chair available at the property for guests' use. No additional charge (please bring bedding for the cot).
