One of my best holidays nice location, nice people
Enjoyed my holiday very much and certainly would stay there again.
This was the most unpleasant & uncomfortable holiday we have ever had we are a couple in our mid seventies and nothing about the place place was good I have emailed Smart Homes and awaiting a reply
The photograph is totally unrepresentative of what this studio is like.
My first impression was very musty, small and not a place to spend any part of a holiday. We lasted 2 nights out of 7 and when home.
The surface of the interior is clean. The bed was clean, the towels clean.

Some small tweeks would make it better.
Generally a nice well equipped compact flat. The only real let down were the blinds which were in a poor condition. Curtains would be much better. Also there really should be something on the wall of the shower to put soap, etc.
Holiday Review 2018.
I know Bournemouth very well as I used to live there permanently. Now an overseas visitor. Location is excellent, short walk to Beaches and cliff top walks. Excellent holiday let for a maximum of two people only.
Thank you for your review, we were pleased to welcome you back to Bournemouth. I am glad to hear you were impressed with the property, location and our service! We hope to welcome you back again in the future.
not the best accomodation
the area is lovely and the apartment is very close to the beach and comes with parking which is good however I wouldn't stay here again, the apartment needs some tlc, we had problems with several things, firstly the double flush on the wc kept sticking so wouldn't flush and kept cutting off in a second, basically on the single flush kicked in.
Secondly on the Monday night we came in around 630 pm to find a cockroach running around on the floor at the bedhead end of the bed, we tried to kill it but it disappeared.
It reappeared on weds and we ended up sucking it up with the hoover as we couldn't catch it any other way.
I would suggest it had come from next door as from outside it didnt look very clean from the window, bits of leaves stuck to the glass and mould on the blinds.
Thirdly we opened the blinds and windows to let some air in as it was boiling on arrival and no windows were open. The blinds were jammed open and we couldnt get them back down so had to cover the window with cushions to stop people seeing in, never the less the blinds were filthy anyway with bits broken off and mould in parts.
Then there was a problem with the drains, every time you washed the pots there was a terrible smell of bad drains when you let the water go and it was backing up with waste water in the shower which you had to be a contortionist to use, the shower was the smallest ive ever been in.
So all in all not good and I wouldn't recommend or stay again, I was going to contact the travel agent on the holiday but you dont want the hassle when you are away of people having to be called out although we wasted a few hours trying to fix blinds and catching a cockroach.
The apartment is located in Southbourne, between Bournemouth town centre and Christchurch - the perfect location for those keen to escape the busier areas of the town centre. The area offers some unique shops, cafes and restaurants.
Take a walk up Hengistbury head and you'll be greeted with wonderful views of the coastline and the Isle of Wight. Stroll down the other side and you'll find yourself on the beach where you can quench your thirst in the café or catch a boat over to Christchurch. The priory town with its castle ruins and natural harbour offers some lovely locations for lunch or dinner.
As well as its premier league football team, Bournemouth hosts three internationally renowned theatres and several music venues where you can see many top touring bands or side splitting comedians. Located on the beautiful coastline, the town is bordered by the channel, a stretch of water historically significant: from the invasion of William the Conqueror and his Norman knights, to the Battle of Britain in the Second World War. The town is populated with a huge variety of high-street shops and two Michelin star restaurants: Arbor and Neo. The square separating Bournemouth's long high street plays host to a huge variety of entertainment - from drumming bands and circus skills in the summer; to outdoor carol concerts and the Christmas market in the winter time. On the seafront sits Bournemouth Oceanarium: explore what swims beneath the ocean and find your underwater adventure. At the end of August each year, the town hosts Bournemouth Air Festival, one of the largest air shows in Europe, combining aerobatic prowess, naval efficiency, and many exhibitions at ground level. If military history is your cup of Dorset tea, why not visit the Bovington Tank Museum and understand why the metal machine's history is inter-linked with Dorset's own.
