We are in the MOST STUNNING BOURNEMOUTH AIRBNB LOCATION! Sea views to die for, beautiful large room, garden&sundeck, 1min walk to the beach, free parking, all at an unbeatable price; your holiday starts right here! It doesn't get better than this :-)
We are now offering this new amazing, beautiful king size modern, bright, clean, refurbished large bedroom suite with beautiful views over the Sea on the South Coast of England! The king size suite contains a comfortable king size bed plus a pull-out chaise for additional guests. An extra single bed can be added for the comfort of single sleepers. Our unique private house is situated on the cliff tops on the UK South coast with mesmerising views. Wake up to a sunrise over the sea and watch the sun set from your room!
The room suits up to 4 max in total, ideal for families with children. We can add an extra single bed if you prefer to have separate arrangement for single sleepers. Our home is situated in a lovely huge 1930's English house and has garden views and beautiful patio doors opening to the sunny wild clifftop garden and decking with un-rivalled views over the Sea on the South Coast of England! Views to the left are of the Isle of Wight and Bournemouth Bay/Purbecks to the right, the best of Dorset coastline with 8 miles of golden sandy beaches. Wake up and walk out into the garden through the kitchen patio doors downstairs, 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...
Our home hosts a modern large kitchen / breakfast room, modern bathroom and shower rooms both with either rain shower or spa/steam room. We 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!). All kinds of water sports are available on the seafront, inc surfing, body boarding, kite surfing, SUP. 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, and many other places of interest and things to do... there is something for everyone!
We also have the pleasure of being able to offer our very own in-house complementary therapies & beauty treatments. Why not relax and book yourself in for a hotstone massage, reiki, aromatherapy, meditation session or even try a personal yoga tuition on the garden deck? Prices for these are on application, subject to availability, bookable in advance (we need at least two weeks notice please and availability is subject to change) - prices on request are very reasonable! We look forward to meeting you, your family and friends.
2 bathrooms, lounge with open fire, kitchen/diner with wood burner and cooking facilities (if you wish to cook, vegetarian/vegan food only please), large garden with decking & seating, parking space (please advise if this is needed asap when booking your room, allocated on a 1st come 1st served basis and we can't always guarantee availability)
Interaction with Guests
We love having people to stay and have had lots of guest experience already - see for yourself in the comments! We welcome visitors from all around the world and are interested to get to know everyone according to your own wishes. Always happy to make more friends!
Please have a look at this link if you need to know why you just absolutely MUST come and visit us in Bournemouth!
I love Boscombe Spa Village, it used to be a Victorian Spa Bath and people used to take the sea water for good health! A quiet area away from town centre, right on the clifftops - it doesn't get nearer the sea than this! And lots of classy restaurants on and near the beach, and a vast selection of bars, pubs, eateries just 5mins walk into bohemian Boscombe town centre. We ve lived here for 10 years and love it!
All main buses go from Boscombe Bus Station 5 mins walk away. Route 41 is just 10 seconds from our house, and does an open top bus route around Bournemouth!
Other Things to Note
All prices quoted INCLUDE our veggie continental-style breakfast! 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 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 child's Peppa Pig bed in the room at no extra charge. Parking is also available on our drive, free of charge - a must in the summer when parking is nigh impossible 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 read through our whole profile 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, our own daughter 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 apologise but after some experience we decided we will not allow alcoholic drinks or food in our bedrooms. 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 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.
Last but not least, we do have two 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 2 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.
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!
