“Great home from home”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2017

My family stayed at apartment 51 for Easter this year, we had a lovely welcome in the comfortable home from home. Superb location, easy stroll to the beaches & lovely local restaurants. The apartment is very well equipped and everything has thought about, tastefuly decorated too. We look forward to staying here again.

“Can't wait to come back”

Reviewed 11 Dec 2016

This lovely flat was so welcoming when we arrived that it set the mood for the whole of our stay. The place was spotlessly clean and cheerful and furnished to a very high standard. Being only 5 mins walk from the beach was ideal. We really enjoyed the restaurants nearby and it was so nice to go out without taking the car. Although the weather was perfect for the whole of our stay, we would have been happy to remain in the apartment had it rained, it was that comfortable! Super fast Wifi too:-). Can't wait to come back next year!

“Stylish, well equipped apartment”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2016

This apartment was full of visually interesting design touches and modern, stylish but comfortable furniture. With a Sainsbury's a few hundred yards from the flat, oven ready meals were easily available and The Reef just round the corner offered great food and an enthusiastic welcome. There are cliff walks that start a few minutes from the door, with stunning views of Hengistbury and the Isle of Wight, and buses to other parts of the area run every few minutes . Booking and payment was achieved in about 10 minutes over the internet and the keys arrived by post the next day, with a stamped addressed envelope for their return. The owner goes out of her way to ensure a happy stay. Altogether this was a much better option than a hotel room.

“Great Retreat”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2015

we enjoyed an extremely comfortable and relaxing holiday in this apartment which was very well equipped - more so than any we've stayed in before. It is in a convenient location to visit attractions nearby eg Hengistbury Head (our favourite) where we saw the annual migration of flocks of starlings giving a murmuration display, Bournemouth and Southbourne with miles of walking along the promenade or the beautiful Boscombe Chine gardens where you can enjoy a cream tea or play minigolf. We were lucky that the weather was sunny all week but the apartment is well stocked with books and DVDs for wet days. Boscombe High Street with its restaurants and victorian arcades is a short walk away as is a large Sainsbury supermarket.

“Well appointed apartment close to the beach.”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2015

Really well appointed apartment, ideal for our family holiday. On arrival the apartment was immaculate and a credit to the cleaners employed by the owners. With children who love to be bare foot that's important! The back door of the apartment was great for unloading once we had arrived and we used it more then the front door in the end! The kitchen is well equipped and the dishwasher and washing machine were easy to use. The lounge area was roomy and the selection of books, DVDs and games were well utilised. The bedrooms were comfortable and pleasantly decorated, and had enough storage for us. Location of apartment is really good, it's a 10 minute walk from Boscombe Pier (with a slow paced 3 year old and a fast paced 8 year old!) and beaches. It's also close to the park and mini golf, great for a damp afternoon away from the beach. The land train to Bournemouth goes from the promenade by the the pier into Bournemouth if you want a busier beach and bigger selection of restaurants. There are a couple of nice independent restaurants close to the beach and for a short walk into Boscombe town centre cafe Bosconova is well worth a visit for breakfast! If you fancy a day away from the beach, we went to Adventure Wonderland which is close to Bournemouth airport only 10 minutes away. Entrance fee was very reasonable and there was enough there to keep our two children occupied. The quiet nature of Boscombe compared to the more vibrant Bournemouth was the thing that appealed to us for our holiday and the apartment made our stay comfortable and easy.

“Very comfortable, well appointed and very nicely furnished.”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2014

Depending on what your holiday plans are, I feel a car is necessary as all the action appears to be in Bournemouth itself. Shopping street within easy access. The unit is a basement flat but this is not a problem as very well lit and has a very convenient back entrance. Overall we enjoyed our stay here.

“Couldn't ask for more!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2014

This spacious apartment has a 'home from home' feel with absolutely everything you could ask for in it. It is situated close to the gorgeous sandy beach and we had some lovely meals in the local area. Ocean City chinese restaurant and Urban Beach are definately recommended; as is this apartment!

“Fantastic apartment in a wonderful location”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2014

This was my second stay at this excellent holiday apartment, and after my previous experience I was keen to return at the earliest opportunity. This time, we had amazing weather to accompany the great facilities on offer. The apartment is located in such a wonderful old building - Burlington Mansions - which evokes fond memories of the storied past of this charming seaside resort. While the apartment is ideally situated a few minutes stroll from the seafront and Boscombe Pier, it is also a superb base to explore the beautiful Dorset countryside and New Forest. We took day trips through the countryside to Dorchester, and also to Swanage and Corfe Castle on the Isle of Purbeck, which is accessible by a short ferry ride from Bournemouth. The location of the flat is therefore ideal - both for lazy days on the seafront in Boscombe, and for exploring the South coast and surrounding countryside if you prefer a more vigorous vacation! The flat itself is very well equipped, and the owners obviously care about maintaining the property and facilities to the highest of standards. I must also say that Teresa was extremely helpful during the booking process, and provided comprehensive directions as well as a list of suggestions on nearby restaurants and attractions that significantly enhanced our stay. Hope to return soon!

“A beautiful homely apartment with a perfect location”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

We had a break here in late December to relax and try a bit of surfing (brrrrr!) and this was the perfect base to get down to the beach and get out of the cold when we were done! The first impression of this apartment was that it is *really* nicely decorated and immaculately clean. There are themed pictures hanging throughout and nice, modern furniture. It's not just a pretty face either - the place is extremely well thought out: We stayed in and cooked and found everything we needed right there (pots, pans, cutlery and plenty of basics like tea, sugar etc). There's a dishwasher to make life easier when your done and a large selection of DVDs by the TV to watch in the evening (unfortunately I was forced to watch Bridget Jones' diary... again!) and a load of books and local tourist guides. There were instructions for all the facilities (wifi was a decent speed too). Showers were warm, washing machine worked, beds were very comfortable. Even little details have been thought of - the owners have put a large picture outside on the wall opposite the lounge window so you aren't greeted with bricks. In short, its better equipped, better looking and more comfortable than my house. I need to move here! Location-wise, this place is just up the hill from the beach so really ideal for anyone looking to get down there (would be great for families). And there is a high street with a Sainsbury's within walking distance in the other direction. Pretty much perfect. All in all, I really can't fault my experience at Boscombe Reef Retreat (except my friends' choice of movie and the Great British weather) and I will definitely recommend this to anyone looking to visit Bournemouth/Boscombe over a more expensive (and probably less comfortable) B&B or hotel.

“Great New Year stay at this wonderful apartment!”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

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!
