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.
The bus stop is down the road (1 min walk) and Pokesdown Train station is 7 min walking distance.
Bournemouth center 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 have changed the carpet throughout the flat as we want to keep it nice & fluffy all shoes must be left outside and no drinks or food is allowed outside the kitchen.
We would be happy to provide 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).
Lovely host Isa. Very comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean. Wonderful home made pastries for breakfast. Perfect coffee. Wi Fi. On street parking but not a problem. No en suite facility
Great place to stay, immaculate & stylish, with interesting and very friendly hosts. Almost like staying with friends! A great breakfast. Strongly recommended.
Heel gastvrije verhuurders. Mooi huis, goede hygiëne. Heerlijk ontbijt, erg veel keuze.
Isa and David were the best hosts I've had in my experience with AirBnB. They were so friendly and had really good knowledge of the area. They made us feel welcome in their home and made delicious breakfast including homemade pain au chocolat. I would recommend this listing to anyone looking for accommodation in the area. Close to the train station (Pokesdown), really clean, comfy bed, quick walk to the beach.
We had a very warm and friendly welcome from Isadora. We were offered a welcoming cup of tea on arrival. Isadora gave us a wealth of information about the local area, how to get places and recommended various restaurants to eat in. We had a lovely substantial breakfast in the morning - much more than we expected. Isadora was a very friendly host and we had nice chats with her. Would highly recommend staying here and hope to visit again in the future.
Wir wurden sehr herzlich willkommen geheißen. Das Zimmer wurde - wie die gesamte Wohnung - mit viel Liebe und Geschmack tip top neu renoviert. Die Wohnung war blitzblank. Isa und Dave haben uns mit einem üppigen Frühstück überrascht, das keine Wünsche offen ließ. Jeden Morgen gab es eine andere Überraschung - ob Pancakes, frischer Obstsalat oder frisch gepresster Orangensaft. Oder selbst gebackenen Kuchen amm Sonntagnachmittag. Die Beiden sind sehr nett und besonders hilfsbereit: egal, welches Thema zur Sprache kommt, sofort wird mittels I-Pad im Internet recherchiert. Auch gaben sie uns viele hilfreiche Tipps, z. B. wo man sehr gut essen kann, aber auch für wunderschöne Ausflüge. Isa zeichnete uns sogar Landkarten :-). Sollten wir wieder nach Bournemouth reisen, würden wir auf jeden Fall wieder gerne bei Isa und Dave wohnen wollen.
We spent a lovely week end at Isa and David's house.
Not only the flat and room were amazing, but we were also provided with all the help we could have asked for.
They both shared their loved of Bournemouth with us and recommended the best places to visit as well as great places to eat.
The flat is conveniently located 5 mins away from the sea front, perfect for anyone willing to spent some time enjoying everything the city has to offer.
We had such a great trip that we are already planning our next one, and will definitely stay at this place again !
P.S : Don't eat to much for diner, because the Breakfast Isa will prepare for you is so good that you will regret not having more space in your belly ! We had fresh pastries as well as pancakes. What else do you need for a perfect city break in Bournemouth ?
