About Robert & Dawn Walsh

Robert & Dawn Walsh live locally in the area and have owned the apartments from new when they were built in 2009.

Why Robert & Dawn Walsh chose Dorset

Alum Chine is our favourite of all the beautiful Bournemouth Beaches, we love the area which is easily accessible for all Bournemouth has to offer, also providing easy access to Westbourne, another favourite for restaurants and it's individual shops.. We fell in love with the apartments which were built on the site of the original Studland Dene Hotel. We have a large family and the apartments provide the perfect place to get together and enjoy the beautiful Dorset coastline for holidays and short breaks.

What makes this apartment unique

We can cater for larger families by booking apartments 18 A & B together (The Knoll Suite).

The suite comprises of two beautifully appointed luxury self-catering apartments, both of which are self contained and are connected by a secure hallway allowing the apartments to be booked individually or together.

Excellent apartment 2 mins from the sea!

  • 5 of 5

Concierge service on arrival made for v easy check in/out. Free parking immediately outside.Fantastic studio apartment just 2 minutes away from the beach and the lovely Vesuvio restaurant, or a wee bit further on foot to 2 more restaurants. Equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday......lots of crockery and cutlery and PROPER size wine glasses (and lots of them!!)! Basic washing up kit supplied including tea towel- always useful. There is a mini dishwasher (not working during our trip but didn't detract from our stay!) TV, docking station and Wifi all excellent. Bed v comfortable. Has a v small sea view from lovely large terrace...which believe it or not we used in January as so sheltered! 20 minute stroll to Bournemouth centre. Promenade lit so safe to walk to and from in the dark. Area is mostly residential so very quiet. Sunday morning with patio doors open all we could hear were gulls and waves breaking! We walked along the promenade to Sandbanks- about half an hour medium paced walk to yet more restaurants! We did not use our car at all for 3 days! The apartment is a breath of fresh air from hotels and we would definitely stay here again- or even next door in the larger apartment- and whole heartedly recommend it. A great find! Thank you for renting out such a fab place!

Perfect beach location for early risers

  • 3 of 5

The studio we rented mid September needed a bit of TLC after what must have been a busy summer but the concierge and the owner were extremely proactive and helpful in making sure our stay went smoothly. It was very nice to be a stone's throw away from the beach even if the streets get busy early morning with restaurant deliveries and refuse collection. A perfect incentive to enjoy that sunrise swim !

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment very modern and very close to the beach. We stayed for 6 days and had beautiful weather for 4 of the day's meaning we could use the very large patio. The patio is shared with the studio next door but it did not bother us as it was so large. Very well equipped and have to say John the concierge was lovely and very helpful gold star for him. Lovely restaurant on the top floor excellent food, but is rather expensive but there are a number of places to eat within walking distance and the bus to the town does stop right outside the door.

For a birds’ eye view of the striking coastline and surrounding countryside take a flight on the Bournemouth Balloon situated in the central gardens or keep your feet firmly on the ground by shopping among the boutiques. Bournemouth Oceanarium is a must see attraction. The PierZip is the world’s FIRST pier to shore zip wire experience in the world located at the very end of the Bournemouth Pier and a great activity for those seeking adventure.
