“Don't hesitate to book!” We agree with all the other positive reviews for this flat. The owner is an absolute delight to deal with and the property is without doubt the nicest, most well-equipped self catering flat in which we have stayed. It was spacious and warm and very easy to keep clean and tidy.
It really is well equipped and workbooks for all appliances were in a file in the kitchen - even for the kettle and toaster!
We are an older couple but had we been younger with small children there would have been no problems, the flat is very child-friendly and there are many DVDs, games and books to keep the little 'uns occupied on rainy days.
The neighbours were very quiet in the time we were there and the lady superintendent was very helpful and friendly
We found it was very easy to get to town by bus or walking and the few times we had to get a taxi part way (husband's dodgy hip!) the cost was around £6.00.
The only negative we would mention would be the table top ironing board. We would have preferred a full sized one, but even so, we've never stayed in a holiday flat where the only negative is not really worth mentioning.
If we win the lottery - we're putting in an offer!!! Thank you SO much.
Please note, the review was written before return of breakages deposit which is why N/A is showing on the questionnaire. We wanted to put our positive thoughts on paper asap.

“Perfect apartment, ideal location on the beach” Short walk to beach and sandbanks ferry to Brownsea Island and Studland. No car required. Beautiful sunrise on lovely blue flag sandy beach and amazing sunset over the harbour in the evening. Close to ferries to Guernsey, Jersey and France from Poole. Great days out at Corfe Castle, Swanage, Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge and Bournemouth. Beautifully appointed apartment with ensuite bathroom and all very modern, light and bright. Nice sunny balcony with views. Great parks nearby, Poole Park, Alum Chine, Sandbanks & Compton Acres. Will definitely book again.

“Perfect stay with young children.” We had a fantastic week at Sandbourne house, the facilities were fantastic and the children loved all the toys and games, which we made good use of as the weather was very "British " that week. The location was perfect, just a short stroll to the beach and pirate playground, we ate at Vesuvios restaurant on the beach which was also brilliant although would definitely recommend booking, especially on the weekend. Very helpful information, and leaflets of the surrounding areas activities and days out, which was lucky as we were (shamefully) lost without WiFi. Can strongly suggest that you don't lock yourself out of the apartment, although even this was dealt with without any real problems.

“Ticked all the boxes!” Group of 4 friends stayed at the apartment (16-18-NOV-2012)
The original check-in/check-out times were not to our liking(16:00/10:00), but the lady looking after the place (amanda) was very flexible with us as no one was staying at the apartment,either side of us. We met her at 15:00 on the friday (paid the deposit) & left at 14:30 on the sunday. I am someone who always asks for a later check-out as after a late night (got home after a night out in bournemouth at 03:00),the thought of having to leave by 10:00 would not be ideal & change the enjoyment of the whole weekend!
The apartment was nice & warm & the heating was very simple to control via the room thermostat.
We had a couple of take-aways which worked out really well. There were take-away menus in the info book,which is always a big help when away from home. There were plenty of plates/glasses/cutley etc, also having a fridge/dishwasher always comes in handy.
Two minor things i mentioned to amanda were there was no hand soap & only a half roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, on our arrival. We did find 2 toilet rolls in the cupboard by the front door,but amanda did apologise for this oversight!
Our £100 deposit was returned with no problems as we left the apartment as we found it although i did break a wine glass when unloading the dishwasher,which i informed amanda about but her attitude regarding this was the same as throughtout our stay,excellent!
Finally,would i stay here again if i was visiting Bournemouth?....YES

“Trouble free, excellent holiday in modern apartment overlooking” From the outset everything was simple. The paperwork could not have been easier. We had a warm welcome on arrival and everything that was promised was delivered. The apartment was modern, clean and had all the amenities one could want. Extra storage facilities in our own shed was an added benefit. Car parking could not have been easier. We would certainly recommend this apartment to others.

“Great house, great location, highly recommended” A large group of ladies stayed here for a hen weekend - the house was lovely, great facilities, very clean and all that you would need including a lovely terrace to drink your champagne on in the afternoon sunshine, what more could you ask?!. The lovely sitting room and dining room were adequate space for us all as were the bedrooms - the set up being one long room with 7 beds, a single, a double and 2 doubles which also had a single bed - great for either a single sex group or maybe 3 families. The mattresses all looked and felt new! We all said we would return again whether with friends or family. Well situated for town (£7 in a taxi) and a lovely 30 minutes walk to Branksome beach which was delightful.

“Great New Year stay at this wonderful apartment!” This apartment has it all - it is ideally located in a fabulous Victorian building a mere five minutes walk from the seafront and Boscombe Pier. The flat has an excellent kitchen equipped with all the utensils one could need. The lounge area is comfortable and spacious, and the TV comes equipped with cable and a large selection of DVDs for days when the weather doesn't co-operate. The flat was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. The surrounding area has a large selection of cafes and restaurants, and there are shops within walking distance. Would highly recommend, and will stay again!

“Comfortable, well-furnished, clean, big house in a good location” We were lucky to stay in this house. It looked as good as the pics and possibly even better. The dining room was so elegantly laid out, that made all of us go 'wow!' when we first stepped into the house. We travelled in a family group with children, including an infant. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped, we held a dinner party (inviting family who live nearby) the first night we arrived. The owner gave us the contact of a chef (Matt) who came to the house within 3 hours and we had a last minute dinner party that night for 30 guests! That's how big the house is. There's a pool table and 2 lounge rooms to hang out.
The bedrooms were of very good size. We had clean sheets, fresh towels, lots of hangers and pillows. The bathrooms were clean and hot water was not a problem. The washing machine and dryer worked perfectly well and was well-maintained.
Overall, it was a wonderful stay. It surpassed our expectations.
