N.B. I have noticed that if you are viewing this on Android the pictures lose their captions and friends comments do not appear! Please note that the pictures show the outside and common entrance area before the inside of the flat.

Guest Access

The entire apartment except a couple of storage cupboards.

Interaction with Guests

We do not live on site so personal interaction will be limited other than by phone/email.

The Neighborhood

Boscombe has a unique character and charm, slightly more bohemian and less hectic than Bournemouth centre but lots of restaurants, cafe's etc and lovely walks along the beach or cliff tops.

Getting Around

Buses are less than 5 minutes walk and the train station is just over a mile away. Taxis are cheap and plentiful if you fancy shopping or a night out in 'the big smoke' of Bournemouth!

Other Things to Note

We will often use a key safe located inside the building, beside the front door to give you access; so checkin/out can be very flexible.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check-in is after 12PM (noon)

The carpet is cream so all shoes are left at the entrance doors!
This is a strictly NO SMOKING property.
The communal corridors have high ceilings which are beautiful but carry any excessive noise so respect for other residents is essential.
Due to the proximity of our neighbours BBQs are not allowed on our patio however there is a BBQ area on the patio in the communal gardens that you are welcome to use should you wish.
We do supply bath towels and laundry (that's what the cleaning charge covers). If you fancy a dip then please bring beach towels with you.
The flat is our family retreat and indulgence so we make no apology for being fussy as to who we rent it to, but if you appreciate historic buildings and are respectful of others possessions then get in touch!
