Description from owner


5 mins walk to the beach and in the quiet residential area of Alum Chine, our light and airy holiday apartment is the perfect choice for your family break by the sea. Alum Chine beach is considered the best for families with young children. Beach facilities include a playground, and Italian family restaurant plus snack bar. You can walk along the promenade to Bournemouth Pier in 15-20 mins or get the land train, always a favourite with children! Situated on top floor of recently renovated Victorian Villa in Alum Chine, you can glimpse the sea from the master bedroom and the sitting room. The 3 bed apartment has WiFi and is furnished in a fresh seaside theme. The beds are comfy, the decor is tasteful and we are proud to say that we have a loyal following of returning guests who think of it as their home from home. The master kingsize bedroom is ensuite with a shower and wc. There is a twin bedroom and a single bedroom plus a family bathroom with a wc and bath with a shower over. The sitting/dining has a corner sofa with flatscreen TV, DVD and HiFi plus a dining table which seats up to 6 people. The kitchen has a ceramic hob, grill and oven plus a microwave. We also have 2 under-counter fridges with small freezer compartments so that you have plenty of space for drinks as well as food. There is also a washer/drier. As parents of children ourselves we cater very much for the quality family market and we always aim to have thought of everything so you don't have to bring it with you! We have a travel cot, highchair, booster dining seat, bedguard, potty, loo seat insert, plastic bath non-slip mat, kids plastic plates, bowls and cups plus cutlery etc. We also provide plenty of toys, games and DVDs for the whole family to enjoy together.

Interaction with guest

I like to exchange emails or speak on the phone to my guests before and once they've booked to make sure they'll really enjoy their stay with us. The flat is our holiday home and we want you to love it like we do. I live in Oxford with my young family but have a lovely lady called Helen who helps me with the cleaning and changeovers and who is the local emergency contact. I post instructions and keys out to clients and am always happy to answer any queries you may have. I have a comprehensive visitors guide in the flat but am happy to give you advice on local attractions and days out etc.

Very Good

“Home from home.”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2018

Clean and spacious property. Has wifi connection so good for family. Bedrooms big and a bathroom with shower and separate en-suite essential when a family of five. Is only a 5 mins walk to beach. Takes 20 mins walk to get into Bournemouth walking alongside beach so very pleasant. Gardens in park beautiful. Shopping good in Bournemouth. Visit Swanage and Christchurch for picturesque. Weymouth has a splendid beach for kids and well worth a visit. Further afield visit Paultons for full on fun if you have kids. Beaulieu great for visit has British museum of cars, Top gear exhibition, lovely manor house and gardens. Marley Zoo fantastic. If you love zoos go beginning of holiday and go again for free at end of week. It is set in acres of land so two visits in a week would not be boring as loads to see. (Beaulieu offers free second visit too).

“Spacious clean flat super location!”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2017

This apartment is ideally located to wander through the woodland Chines to the beach only five minutes walk.I stayed here with my two children and parents in August and we found the apartment to be very clean and well organised. It even had the little things you often need to bring when self catering,such as washing liquid, cloths,condiments etc. It also had beach equipment, dvds,books aswell as catering for younger children with high chair and other baby items. Walking into Bournemouth is about 15 minutes along the beach (children are sure to like the landtrain instead)Alternatively it was around ten minutes walk inland from the apartment into Westbourne with local bars and shops(including Tescoexpress). We travelled along to Poole and Weymouth and intend to visit other coastal points on our next visit. Maggy was always prompt and informative with my queries in the run up to our holiday-many thanks!

Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely comments - as parents of three children ourselves, we always aim to provide all the things both our adult and our younger guests need to make their holiday easier, more fun and relaxing.

“Great location, nice apartment, everything you need for children”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2015

The location is perfect, just around the corner from the beach. The apartment is really nice and is very well suited for children as it has everything you need (high chair, travel cot, lots of books, toys and plastic plates/cups/spoons). The owner is very organised and helpful with suggestions for the local area. We had a lovely time and I'm sure we'll stay there again.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words - hope to welcome you back soon!

“Perfect stay with young children.”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2015

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.

“Wonderful flat with lovely details”

Reviewed 9 May 2015

the flat is highly recommendable for families, close to the beach and providing all kind of things you may need. especially the nice contacts to the owner made our holiday perfect.

“Bright apartment close to the beach”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2014

We had a great time at the flat - the weather was really warm for October and my daughter loved the number of different toys available - which was quite unlike any other holiday apartment we have stayed in. The flat was bright, spacious and warm and was only a short walk from the beach and a good playground. The only reason we didn't give the apartment a 5 out of 5 was that the carpets didn't appear to have been vacuumed when we arrived. Think this must have been an oversight though as the surfaces were clean.

“A beautiful, spacious flat by the sea.”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2014

We are a family of 5 (a girl aged 7 & twin boys aged 5) this is our second year of staying at this flat and both times we have had a wonderful time despite the unpredictable British weather! The flat has everything for young families to feel at home, my children loved playing with all the toys, games and reading the books - they were never bored indoors. The kitchen is very well equipped and even had plastic cups, bowls and plates for the children. Unfortunately there is no dishwasher, but this is a small price to pay when everything else is so perfect. The flat was warm, clean and all the beds are very comfortable, we never had a bad nights sleep. Parking in the area is very limited, but the flat has an allocated parking space which was brilliant and we were always able to access it without any problems. The lovely sandy beach is only about a 10 minute walk away, so when the weather was good this is where we spent most of our time. There is also a nice playground next to the beach front. You can pick up the land train from here up to Bournemouth pier if you don't fancy the walk! Overall we love staying at this flat and will definitely be back again.

“Wonderful stylish holiday accomodation with sea views”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2014

We have stayed at this flat now for 5 consecutive Summers and have always had a wonderful time! The flat is in a great position, walkable to Alum Chine and Westbourne with sea views and incredibly well equipped for a family stay. The flat is beautifully furnished and decorated and is very spacious. The sun has always shone on us during our stay but the flat is well equipped with games, toys and films if this isn't the case. Can't recommend highly enough.

“Warm, comfortable and very convenient for sea front.”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2014

We were very pleased with the supply of towels and bed linen. The heating was excellent and very warm for a Winter stay. Sea front near by with long and attractive walks in both directions. If you like to walk go all along the sea front to the Swanage ferry and entry to Poole Harbour. There is a nice little snack bar in the road nearby that sells fried whitebait. Yummy. Walk the other direction past Bournemouth (into the shops if required) then on past Boscombe. If you are really keen, carry on to Hengistbury Head. A comfortable flat, but some confusion about the recycling, it has changed and most things will now go out into the bins.the towel rail in the main bathroom doesn't work, but there is also a second shower, ideal for a family. Plenty of shops in Westbourne, which is a pleasant stroll up through the Chine. A nice place. There is a large dining room if you want to invite friends round.
