About Rob G
I currently live in Kent, but spent many a happy childhood holidaying in Dorset, I also try to get away to Dorset whenever I can with my family. When I found this apartment I knew it was perfect for our needs. Very close to the beautiful beaches, yet convenient for shops, trendy bars and restaurants.
Rob G purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Rob G chose Bournemouth
For its ideal location. The stunning beaches of Bournemouth are just 5 minutes walk at end of the road, so if you are looking for a perfect base to holiday this apartment provides it. As well as its stunning sandy beaches, walking and cycling is a wonderful way to explore the Dorset countryside and coast from the apartment. There is a fantastic bus service at the end of the road, so leave the car, and venture to Bournemouth, Christchurch, Swanage, Corfe and beyond! Shops and restaurants are close at hand, and the apartment has everything you need to enjoy a meal indoors, if you'd prefer, but why not have a coffee or drink at one of the lovely bars that feature along the clifftop or promenade first.
What makes this Apartment unique

I really can't fault this property, the location is perfect, it's clean and bright, loads to do nearby. Communication with the property owners was great and we will definitely be booking again. Close to shops and restaurants, walkable to the beach or a couple of minutes in the car. Very very please with it, would recommend to everyone
Very clean apartment. close to a fantastic beach
the apartment is modern, clean and has the facilities as described.
it was a surprise to have to bring our own linen and towels, but we have not used this type of accommodation before, and that is perhaps more our lack of understanding.
the apartment is 15 min walk to the beach itself (5 to the front and 10 mins to get down the various paths and slopes). there is parking at the front (for free) so you could be there in 10 mins if you drove.. We would definitely stay again.
Dear Lee, thank you so much for your kind review. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again. Regards Rob & Adele

Close to beach, local amenities and lovely Christchurch. The apartment was ideal for our group of seven. We would definitely book it again if we come down south for our next reunion.
Clean, bright and large flat. Perfectly located.
Would most definitely stay again. Such ease with booking and picking up keys.
