About this listing

Our contemporary styled house is situated between Sandbanks & Bournemouth easily reached by car, train or coach. Please say which room you would like when booking and read our FULL listing. Airbnb prices are for one room. Sorry no children or pets.

The space

Firstly please note we have TWO large deluxe en-suite rooms and only one listing therefore if the dates you have in mind appear booked, please always contact us (using different dates in the inquiry) as one room could still be available.

Our house is right on the border of Bournemouth and Poole, near the beach and in the quiet, leafy, conservation area of Branksome Park. It is in prime position for those visiting Bournemouth, Poole, Westbourne, Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks, Swanage or beyond.

We have two large contemporary en-suite guest bedrooms on the 2nd floor. One has a King size bed, large TV and bath/shower, the other has twin beds with TV and walk-in shower. WiFi is provided throughout the house and off street parking is available for those arriving by car.

We are a mainly non-meat eating household and a healthy breakfast is provided. Cereal, yoghurt, eggs (free range of course), toast, fruit, etc. - soya milk is always available and gluten free bread with notice on booking. A full English breakfast (unhealthy fry-up) can be found at nearby café's if really required.

Our accommodation is best suited to international travellers and those seeking a restful time and setting who like to spend the days out exploring. We are not suitable for young children or families seeking ‘bucket and spade’ beach holidays or late night Bournemouth clubbers.

Welcoming hosts, beautiful home, comfortable rooms, quiet residential area close to the lovely Branksome Dene path down to the beach and sea. Regular bus from stop right outside the door to the Sandbanks ferry and Studland beach. Also close to Westbourne village for shops, restaurants etc. An excellent stay.

Ann and Rick were incredibly resourceful and welcoming hosts, providing us with relevant and detailed information on dining and activities. Our ensuite double room was very clean and well furnished. Breakfast was excellent, with a good healthy mix of fruit, breads and cooked food; this was a great opportunity to chat with Ann. The location was in a quiet and friendly community with walkable access to Westbourne and the Bournemouth promenade. We would highly recommend this stay for all couples or families.

Our hosts were very welcoming and provided us with great information about the surrounding area. The room was great and Ann provided a delicious breakfast both mornings. Great location for the beach, town and activities associated to the area, we could walk to everything and we had parking right by the property.

It was our first experience with Airbnb and we had a wonderful stay. Ann & Rick are great hosts. They are very friendly and we got a lot of information about the area and different maps to travel around. This allowed us to make some wonderful day trips. The house is situated close to the beach and there are different good restaurants within a few minutes walk. The breakfast was really good and diversified. We felt like at home. The en-suite rooms are very clean and well equipped. The interior decor is quite nice. We had a pleasant view on the lovely garden. Parking facilities are next to the entrance of the house. Ann and Rick are very kind and flexible. You really do not feel like a stranger in their house. We have kept lovely memories of a great stay at 'Chinatown'.

Response from Ann:
Thanks Nadine for your very nice review - however I think you meant to say Chineland (and not Chinatown).

The king size room is one of the best I've stayed in, luxurious, immaculately clean, beautiful furnishings and very comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring all aspects of Dorset while being a short walk away from award winning beaches and access to Bournemouth or Poole. Ann and Rick were friendly, accommodating and provided a wealth of local knowledge. Highly recommended.

I stayed with my family at Ann and Rick's B & B. Ann and Rick were very friendly and helpful hosts. The rooms were great, very clean and tastefully decorated. The neighbourhood was very peaceful and quiet. We agreed with Ann and Rick on when we wanted breakfast the next day and it was always ready by the time we came down in the morning. Breakfast was varied, there was something to eat for everyone. According to the description on here breakfast was meat-free, but we never felt that it bothered us in any way. Salmon and ham was still served. We were all very happy that we stayed with Ann and Rick. We could not have asked for better hosts. I recommend this B & B for anyone travelling to Bournemouth/Poole. It is perfect if you're a company of 4 and rent both rooms. We hope to stay with you again Ann and Rick!

We are semi retired contemporary art dealers (Swedish & English) and our house also doubles as our gallery these days. Having previously lived and worked in London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Sydney and Los Angeles, we fairly recently moved to this wonderful area of the UK’s south coast after closing our London art gallery. We are widely travelled and enjoy meeting other travellers and therefore find Airbnb a fun thing to do.
