Convenient little apartment

  • 4 of 5

A very convenient modern little groundfloor apartment with off street parking, which is a ‘stones throw’ to the beautiful expansive beaches of Bournemouth. The beaches near to the apartment are dog friendly. Also, within walking distance are local shops, restaurants, cycle paths, costal path walks and a small park. The apartment takes dogs which is great. The apartment was ready on our arrival with clean towels and the main bed made up and the bedding for the sofa bed was ready in the wardrobe.

The private outside space to the apartment was behind the garage which was a very small bland courtyard and unfortunately was disappointing, not a place we felt like sitting in but when you have everything nearby it wasn’t too much of an issue. The apartment is small and in my opinion a great little ‘bolt hole’ that caters for 2 people (plus a dog) comfortably but not for 3-4 adults or teenagers. The sofa and provisions provided only seemed to cater for 3! The sofa was only big enough for 3 people to sit on it upright but not stretch out on. With no other comfy seating it was the floor or dining chairs which after a few hours of watching TV in the evening became impractical and uncomfortable. Maybe an additional comfy chair would be good?! Overall a very pleasant stay to which we hope to return to but just the 2 of us and the dog!! Thank you.

Nice place to stay in Bournemouth for a couple of days.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Seaminder as it was just a block from the sea and groceries were just a short walk away. The apartment was nice and Melita's son was helpful, however I couldn't really give it 5 stars and thus the 4. There were a couple of maintenance issues that I relayed to Melita and the furniture & rug are quite "lived on". It was convenient and quiet which is what we were looking for and great to have easy parking.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Seaminder for a week in July 2016 (2 adults and a teenager) The apartment was very clean and comfortable with good facilities. The location is excellent with the cliffs and beach access a couple of minutes walk in one direction and a variety of shops and restaurants in the other direction. Nice quiet road with private parking available for the apartment. I would recommend taking some extra towels as although there is a washing machine there is nowhere to dry items - the small outside area was a bit grubby! Overall we had a lovely stay and I would highly recommend this apartment.

Beautiful property very comfortable and a lovely hostess who was so helpful and kind to us.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks. Bed was extremely comfortable so we had good night sleeps. The whole apartment was tastefully decorated. Facilities were great, particularly having a washing machine so useful to us. The kidney dialysis unit being just one road away for my husband was an added bonus. Do hope to return again sometime in the future.

Great family trip to the seaside

  • 5 of 5

Booked last minute for our family of 4. Great little place that was a stones throw from the beach. Had a beach day, a paultons park day and a new forest day. Ate breakfasts and dinners in. Served us well. Communication great. Baffi's pizza was fantastic. Thank you Mel!
