Interaction with Guests
My partner and I are well travelled, friendly & open.
I speak fluent French, being French myself, bit of Spanish too. My boyfriend being a true Brit, only speaks English.
We are located in beautiful Southbourne, Dorset close to the Jurassic coast, award winning beach and New Forest.
Southbourne is a real seaside area, very relaxed & friendly with lovely restaurants, shops, markets nearby.
10 minutes walk to the sandy Blue Flag beach & 30 minute walk to Boscombe Pier and its surf reef.
We are also 5 minute walking distance from Pokesdown Train Station and Southbourne Grove shopping center.
Many buses can be taken from Southbourne Grove to reach Bournemouth.
Bournemouth is 30 minute away by bus.
Southampton airport is only 40min away by train (direct) and Bournemouth airport is even closer but only by coach or taxi.
Other Things to Note
We can provide meals throughout your stay.
No smoking throughout the flat but you are welcome to smoke outside by the front door / courtyard.
I am afraid that we do not accept pets.
We would be happy to provide breakfast, meals and packed lunch if required (at an additional cost).
We do expect guests to behave appropriately towards our possessions, keep the noise to minimum and not engage in illegal behaviour (drugs, excessive drinking, and other anti social behaviour).
I had a lovely stay with Isa and David. They are two lovely, welcoming and interesting people who made every effort to make my stay pleasant and comfortable.
They have a lovely home in a great location just a couple of minutes walk away from bus stops & the train station.
My favourite thing about my stay was definitely the breakfasts. Isa is a fantastic cook!
Isa is an exceptionally warm and welcoming host. Do not miss an opportunity to stay with her! She is a wonderful cook and prepared a fantastic dinner for me on arrival (by prior arrangement) and even catered for my special dietary needs. Breakfast the following morning was equally special! The house is in a very quiet location. Next time it would be good to stay even longer! Thanks Isa.
My first airbnb booking. Happy with the mechanics. Very pleased with Isadora and David's pre-visit communications. Room and facilities absolutely as described. Hosts helpful, friendly, interesting and fun. Accommodation 'fit for purpose' and good value IMO. Recommended without hesitation/reservation.
Fantastic in every way!
The house is super clean, the room is cosy, the location is good.
On top of that, unlike the hotel option, you get to meet amazing people who make you feel at home.
Isa and Dave are friendly and open minded. We had nice chatting times over a delicious home made breakfast including home made pains au chocolat and pancakes! They are also very flexible and allowed us to arrive earlier and store our luggage on the last day. They would give you excellent tips to explore the area.
We definitely recommend them.
One of the best things of travelling is to discover unexpected human and natural landscapes that enhance our lives. Be hosted by Isa and David was a beautiful surprise in many levels, for the human warmth, for the grace and amazing talent of baking exquisite french patisserie and get to know very interesting people..open mind, sensitive and pleased for hosting.
My friend and I felt really welcome and comfortable. The room is spacious and cosy. The house is full of art, joy and love. The location is perfect. Near the beach, the station and nearby convenience stores and great restaurants.
Thank you very much for this amazing time.
I definitely recommend Chez Isa and David.
All the best, Andrea & Gabriela.
Isa and Dave are the greatest hosts. They are very friendly and helpful. My parents were spending a week at their place and they've been telling me everyday how nice they are.
We had a proper experience with Isa and Dave! They are a very special couple and run an amazing house. The room ins very, very, very comfortable and the house is extremelly clean and the design freaking cool! Not to mention the breakfats... delicious and fantastic! If you happen to have Isa in the kitchen... oh well, you are damn lucky! She bakes unbelievable tasty cakes, pancakes, cupcakes, and so on!
Great people, great place, great everything! They properly took care of us, suggesting the things to do and having a lot of patience with us! It was such a pity by the end of our journey that we had to leave. We would have stayed there forever!
If you want to experience Bournemouth, than you gotta stay with isa and Dave!
My partner and I are well traveled, friendly & open.
