Make A Holiday Rental House in Bournemouth, England Your Home Away From Home

Pat and Graham made us feel very welcome for which many thanks. The apartment was immaculate and the views across the River Stour to Tuckton stunning. We were fortunate with the weather and where able to sit out on the veranda just watching people, in the words of the song, 'just messing about on the river'. Good location with just a pleasant stroll along the river into Christchurch. Definitely hope to return in the not too distant future.

Kitchen only has a microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge but with all the restaurants within walking distance this is really not an issue. The studio was spotless, and had everything needed for a stay. Two single beds, two armchairs for watching the telly, a small table and chairs. Crockery and cutlery is also available if you want to eat in the apartment. Graham is a lovely gentleman. Took his time to explain everything when I arrived, and although I did not need to call on him till I left, I'm sure if there were any problems he would have sorted them straight away. I had a lovely stay and hope to return with my wife when we can arrange some time off together. Thanks for a lovely stay.
