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

Situated neatly on the south coast of England in the county of Dorset is the modern coastal town of Bournemouth. The town is relatively younger than many other towns as it was only founded in 1810. A Bournemouth holiday is the ideal choice for those visitors looking to enjoy a seaside holiday that is filled with things to do and places to see. What’s more, a Bournemouth holiday rental house will give you some spectacular sea views as well as ensuring that your stay in the town is as comfortable as it possibly could be.

For those who have a head for heights, there is also the Bournemouth Eye; unlike the modern London Eye, the Bournemouth Eye looks akin to a hot-air balloon and is limited to 30 passengers at any time up into the sky to take in some wonderful scenery.

                                    The house was beautiful, clean and modern. It was very spacious and well equipped. The location was beautiful and the walk through the nature reserve to the beach was very tranquil. The owners where very friendly and welcoming and we're already planning our next stay there!

                                    Small but very well equipped. Great alternative to a hotel room.

                                    Enjoyed the terrace outside. The apartment is small but has everything you need to be comfortable and is well furnished. Walking distance to Alum Chine beach and terrace has glimpses of the sea towards Bournemouth Pier. Smell from rubbish area was unpleasant at times and should be addressed. It will only get worse with the councils crazy decision to move to 3 weekly collections. I spoke to concierge about this. He was glad of the feedback, but is aware of the problem. Felt the damage deposit which had to be paid with final payment was a bit high. It could have been left and refunded by concierge I felt. It has incurred us quite a lot of bank charges as we are not from UK. I have yet to be informed that this has been refunded. Hopefully it will be within the promised 2 weeks. Overall I would recommend for a couple who are planning to be out and about most of the time as we were.

                                    Very comfortable and convenient

                                    4 of 5
                                    A very clean and comfortable property I would have preferred a couple of extra tea towels as there is no draining board and some oven gloves. It was other wise very well equipped We had a pleasant stay. Thank you
