  • This is a very special place to stay, that really lives up to the photographs. A beautiful property, I only wish we had stayed longer there. We loved the main entranceway with the billiard table, and the media room. The kitchen is great as well. This flat has all the luxury extras that you dream about - electric armchairs, wine cooler etc.

    Great location, a few minutes from the beach. Check in and out were very easy, all of the instructions around the house were very simple and helpful, good lists of taxis and restaurants. Good hosting set-up with minimum hassle.

    I would love to stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone.

  • Bournemouth, and nearby Boscombe where the apartment is, are great places for a summer break. Gorgeous beaches, charming cafes and great restaurants. The nightlife in Bournemouth and Poole did not disappoint either. The apartment was a fantastic base, which does justice to the impressive photos on the airbnb website. When the weather kept us indoors, the indoor luxury cinema ticked all the important boxes. The kitchen is very well equipped and the entire apartment was clean and comfortable. Mandy, the concierge, was helpful as was our host Jim, with enquiries before we arrived. I would recommend this as a great luxury pad for a short break.

  • Our stay in Jim's flat was GREAT!! He is a really nice guy, he accommodated our request of an early check in so that we could leave our bags and make the most of the day at the beach. The flat is just one of a kind. What you see is exactly what you get. Plenty of space, a big modern kitchen and a home theatre downstairs with fully reclining sofas. Literally 5 minutes walk away from the beach. It was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend!! Thanks Jim!

  • Originally it's a good house and nice place to joy a two day vacation, the facilities and layout of house are great even the spacious cinema room.
    But the host is so annoying I ever met, asking me too many questions about this and that, it's peer-to-peer business not I am begging you to let me IN! And it charges! You rent the house and please don't set so many rules for your tenant. Please if you see your lovely house as something so important cannot be touched, don't rent it at all!
    BTW I am already so nice to wish the dishes and following your one A4-size -page instruction, only left some wished dashes on the table because the taxi was waiting outside.
    Most angrily you send me a message said "you are so kind to don't mention such thing in my review." Come on, I pay the £50 cleaning fee and you aren't even willing to put some dishes, ridiculously!

    Response from Jim:

    I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and I hope that you find other nice places on airbnb.

  • This place is absolutely stunning! We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in and saw the HUGE chandelier and as we made our way through the flat, things just got better and better! The hidden en suite bathroom was cool as was the hot tub! There is an amazing view of the beach from the balcony and the cinema room was the pièce de resistance for us! Jim was incredibly helpful from the moment I emailed him to ask about availability to the final day when we checked out. The only downside was having to leave after a weekend! Wish we could have stayed for a week to really appreciate the place and the beach (which is 5 min walk away). Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place, we enjoyed every second of it and will be recommending it to everyone! Roshni & family

  • A truly breathtaking property - ideally located just a stone's throw away from Boscombe Pier and it's beautiful beach, with local shops and restaurants all in walking distance. That's if you want to leave the apartment, of course! Beautiful, grand and with epic views from its sun-trap terrace, 10 Burlington Mansions is dripping in style, history and charm. Myself and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's well-equipped with everything to make guests feel comfortable and welcome. The owner Jim and everyone we dealt with were - and continue to be - helpful and courteous, going above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our visit.
    Can't recommend or praise enough!
