“Lovely house, wonderful location”
Reviewed 12 June 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This was the second year staying at this lovely house. Nicely furnished and everything catered for. Good view of the beach and the bay from the decking at the end of a long garden. Access to beach and Bournemouth centre within easy walking distance.

“Beautiful, luxury, accommodation with stunning views!”
Reviewed 17 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

What a great find! This truly is a stunning property. In a central location but with the benefit of being on a quiet road just a few minutes walk from the lovely Sandy beaches of Alum Chine. There is plenty to entertain the whole family and many adventures to be had along the Jurassic coastline.

We certainly will be returning and would like to say a huge thank you to the Smart Holiday Rentals team and owners for such a memorable holiday.

“Lovely home, great location and views”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We arranged to stay for a week at the end of August. We stayed with four other friends.
On arrival we were taken aback by the beautiful stained glass windows and panels. They were lovely features in such a modern decorated home.
Each room was clean and well presented. The decor is very neutral making it seem very big and spacious.
There were lovely touches such as big beanbags and cosy blankets for sitting outside. There were candles provided for outside even though more permanent lights would have been better as the candles just kept going out.
Even though we didn't need it, there was a high chair and travel cot supplied. There were also board games, toys and buckets and spades.
There are 2 double rooms and a room with two single beds. All beds were comfortable apart from we found the quilt covers made us very hot!
All rooms have places to hang clothes and the room with two singles had a door onto the patio. You may need to remove the key if you have young children staying in there as at the end of the garden is a fantastic view with a very steep drop.
The garden is a super size with a BBQ and loungers. There is a stunning view of the beach, we sat outside every morning to have our morning cuppa.
The master room has an ensuite, there is also a single toilet and a very large bathroom. The large bathroom really need to have a lock on it, we weren't staying with family and it felt risky using it.
There is a lack of toilet roll holders and because the roll is always behind, the toilet seat twists as it's become loose.
I know someone has put about the lack of blinds in the master. The owners say they like it however you could install them and they can be kept up when the owners stay.
The kitchen is very clean, we were provided with dishwasher tablets and a complimentary pack of sponge, coffee etc. The kitchen has everything you need however I think a good sort out of utensils would be good. We ended up using BBQ tongs for the bacon and sausages for our breakfast.
The TV could do with being replaced, it's a little old and the screen has an unusual mark across it that can be seen when watching during the day.
There is good access to the beach with a few minutes walk.

Overall the flat is gorgeous and we would definitely come again especially with our future children.

“No curtains”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in April 2015

This is a nice property and could very easily be a very good holiday let. There are two main problems with the flat though - the first is that there aren't any curtains in the bedrooms or lounge, so if you turn up with your young children like we did there's going to be big problem getting them to sleep and then again when they wake up with the sun at 05.00am.
We had to buy face masks, which we never normally wear, and our young children instantly threw off. The letting company seemed fairly uninterested in this as a problem and suggested that we should have noticed on the pictures that there aren't curtains in the flat, which I found insulting and annoying.

The other issue is that it was a bit grubby, in particular the lounge cushions and sofa, which were pretty manky. The remote control for the tv had evidently never, ever, ever been cleaned and had a fairly thick coating of other peoples finger dirt on it.


This points could easily be rectified and then it'd be a great holiday let.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you have chosen our booking services on several occasions for stays in Bournemouth but sorry to hear this particular property did not meet your expectations. As you are aware each property belongs to a different owner and therefore it is at their discretion to furnish their holiday home to their tastes (this particular owner preferred sheer curtains over blackout blinds and did not foresee this as a problem). As an agent we forward our customer recommendations to the owners for their consideration and as a result custom made blinds have been fitted to the double and twin bedroom. Please note the master bedroom still has sheer curtains only (this is the owners personal preference as they regularly use this property as their holiday home). All other points mentioned were addressed upon your departure as requested during your courtesy call.

Please accept our sincere apologies on behalf of the owners that the property did not meet your expectations. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bournemouth this Summer whether you choose to stay at this property or an alternative.
