Wake up and walk out into the garden through the patio doors to a sunrise over the sea and watch the sun go down on the beach nearby, or simply relax in your room and observe the seagulls floating over the coastline...with access to garden and outdoor decking through your patio doors with only a minute's walk to the beach, our home hosts a modern large kitchen / breakfast room, modern bathroom and shower rooms both with rain shower/spa/steam room. 1We are in a very calm and quiet location but also close enough to Bournemouth town centre (20 min stroll along the beach or take the fun-for-all-ages land train from pier to pier!).

Wi Fi is included free of charge in your stay, you can do Yoga on deck outside, and hopefully catch some amazing sunsets and lights play with the sky over the sea, typical to Dorset! We offer a Vegetarian continental-style breakfast included in your stay, too - where a good many friendships are formed over a cup of Earl Grey or real filter coffee! You can use our large kitchen/diner with fireplace for meetings or to relax. We are in a beautiful, secluded, calm and serene spot on the South coast, in a quiet location, with many beautiful places to visit nearby and so many things to do. You are also within 5 minute walk to Boscombe town centre, with many lovely restaurants, bars, theatres, cinemas and children's activities on offer. The New Forest is on our doorstep, so is the world-famous Jurassic Coast. 8 miles of white sand beaches, ideal for families and watersport enthusiasts. As featured in Rosamunde Pilcher films and many other film settings, the local Shelley theatre and building/burial place of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein, nearby... there is something for everyone!

Other things to note
All prices quoted INCLUDE our veggie continental-style breakfast, WIFI AND FREE PARKING! We are a vegan-friendly household! And a non-smoking, no alcohol/drugs household above and beyond; we also pride ourselves in talking about and practicing good nutrition - it's important to us that we provide an excellent drinking water quality through a filter system free of charge, massive fresh organic juices or raw chocolate superfood shakes (on prior request @ £4 each - please order in advance BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL and choose from a variety of ingredients - apple, orange, carrot, ginger, lemon, wheatgrass shots, spinach, kale, beets can all be provided for a beautiful breakfast juice if you want an alternative breakfast!) You DON'T have to be veggie to stay with us and of course are welcome to choose from the many non-veg restaurants in the area, but we ask that our guests kindly respect the veggie rule when in our home. We invite people from all over the world with open arms! Children and families are very welcome, we can provide a toddler Peppa Pig bed in the room at no extra charge but we do not keep a baby cot for health and safety reasons, you must bring this with you if needed but babies and toddlers are welcome to sleep with their parents if there is adequate mattress protection - if in doubt, please ask us to provide extra. Parking is available on our drive, free of charge - a must in the summer when parking is nigh impossible and/or very expensive (more than £10 in some cases!) near the beach but you must let us know your parking requirements in advance and we are sorry but we cannot always guarantee a space especially at busy times in the high season. Any questions please ask!
Please note - we are a happily vegetarian/vegan meat-free household, no alcohol, no smoking. We operate at very competitive prices and have a 2-day minimum stay policy and regret that we do not give refunds if you decide not to take up the second day of your stay. We regret you will not be able to consume or store meat or fish at our home, please check if this is suitable for you and your fellow travellers as there is no exception to this rule. Please read through the rest of our full profile and detailed description on a large computer screen as smartphone apps do not always show everything you need to know about your stay. Generally, people use common sense when they stay at someone's home. For the few occasions where you may not know what to expect, here are some guidelines to what you must be aware of when booking with us:
Please read through Airbnb terms & conditions of booking before you reserve your room. The airbnb community is a friendly and wonderful way to make new acquaintances and we believe it's natural to expect our guests to be polite and friendly when coming to stay at our home. The room(s) you are renting is/are part of our precious beautiful large friendly happy clean tidy warm and welcoming seafront family home. You need to be aware that most properties on airbnb are not hotels or B&B's, but people's homes which you are visiting. At our home, myself and our own daughters and visiting children may be present and children are very welcome. You are renting a room in a large property where other guests may likely also be staying at the same time as you. Mostly, our home is incredibly quiet at night, as we think it's only fair to other guests to keep noise down after 10pm and before 8am, so that guests generally sleep really well as there is little noise or traffic. For example, we are a vegan/ vegetarian/no alcohol/no smoking, non-partying mindful household and we decided we will NOT allow alcoholic drinks OR food in our bedrooms. We have cats and this is their home, too - if you enjoy the therapeutic value of beautiful cats, then this place is for you, meouw! Our cancellation modus is set to moderate, this means that if you cancel less than 5 days inc before your arrival date, you are not eligible for a full refund. On or a few days before your arrival day, you will need to let us know your ARRIVAL TIME and also any last minute changes via text message or call so we can be at home to accommodate you. Since we don't operate like a hotel, for various reasons you will not be able to turn up randomly. If you don't have a set arrival time or have arranged to pick up a key with us in advance, you may not be able to get in and we want to avoid you losing some of your holiday time.
If you are booking one of our rooms that sleeps 4, please make sure that the sleeping arrangements within your group are discussed with us beforehand, i.e. you need to disclose who is in your party well in advance so we can prepare the rooms accordingly. This is to figure out who sleeps where as we have two comfy double pull out beds in the Garden Room and in the Sea View room there is a full King size bed and a double pull out chaise similar to a futon. An extra single bed or toddler bed can be added to either room if needed and available, but you must please ask before you arrive and state how many people in your party/what ages. We may not be able to accommodate you on your arrival if this is not clearly discussed beforehand! Also, we serve a veggie breakfast. Guests say it's an amazing spread and also amazing that we do go through such lengths as we've heard that lots of hosts don't even bother. You can supplement it with your own veggie items if you wish, but if for some reason our breakfast doesn't suit you, then please let us know in advance if you prefer to eat breakfast elsewhere. Some food allergies we would consider catering for, i.e. lactose intolerant, gluten-free, yeast or sugar free etc within reason, but you must tell us and ask in advance and before your arrival if you don't want to miss out.
We do have 4 lovely friendly cats. If you are allergic, please provide your own antihistamine although we do keep some just in case. I am allergic myself so hyper-aware of their presence so we keep our house ultra clean and they are not allowed in the bedrooms when there are guests staying even though they might try to sneak in, they are clever after all! If you enjoy the presence of gorgeous friendly cats in a house, this is the place for you! If you really don't like cats at all, please consider whether booking a different home to stay in might not be a better solution for you as they stay in the kitchen and garden and this is their home, too.
We offer very reasonably priced accommodation in our family home and look forward to welcoming you to a friendly and personable experience, as is often the case on airbnb and offers a viable and fun alternative to separate apartments or hotels. In return, we ask that you PLEASE be aware of the following:
Our home is open to anyone who wishes to enter with respect for us and our living environment. Our home means the world to us and we cherish it and love where we live. Over the past 5 years, we have had the majority of guests happily share this experience with us with gratitude and love. Almost all our lovely guests have the common sense to follow this simple rule, but we have had a few exceptions where people wanted to treat us as servants, play out their domestic or relationship issues in our home, were bad-tempered and rude, tried to get us to be a stop-off to go on wild weekend or were simply not aware how to conduct themselves in public at all. We have decided that in these situations, we will no longer humour bad behaviour. We WILL terminate your stay with immediate effect regardless of the consequences to you and your guest party, if we feel that you or your guest party are causing disruption and distress to anybody else or our property, yourselves or your guests and/or are acting to the detriment of the atmosphere in our home. You are herewith reminded of what it is to behave appropriately and politely when in another’s home, and if the situation is not salvageable you will be asked to leave our home without delay. Luckily, there are plenty of alternative places to stay around here, and of course we would like to point this out to you before you book, rather than when it’s too late. If you are planning to have an attitude of entitlement, are messy or thoughtless or need relationship counselling during your stay, have a condition that is not compatible with a family life, are hoping to judge anything and anyone who you come across as if you are some sort of bad travel writer or film anything or anyone on our premises without consent, or just generally feel disgruntled and grumpy to the point of being rude, please look elsewhere for your accommodation or join in one of our reasonably priced therapy c lasses. Thank you for your attention and we hope you realise we do have a sense of humour as well. :-)
Don't worry too much though, you will love it here as all the comments of previous guests show! Many thanks for reading this and please excuse the slightly serious tone of this narrative, which has become necessary due to the amount and variety of guests we host. We do enjoy hosting and very much look forward to meeting you!
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
