“Brilliant holiday stay for family with young kid!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We were there for 4 nights with our son who is nearly 2. It was a nice stay even the weather was let us down a little bit. But the apartment itself is absolutely great.
There are a lot books and DVDs available, even we didn’t get chance to read/watch any. We just stick with all the Virgin TV programs.
If you use the back door, you can get to the car straight away. Especially when you got pushchair, you are able to avoid all the stairs.
Both bathrooms are nice and clean, the shower pressure is great. One thing need to be careful, is the tower rail. Make sure you turn it down a little bit to keep your little safe. It could be quite hot!
The normal check out time is 10 am, since we got young kid, we request to extend couple of hours later, and the owner of the apartment was so nice and allowed us to check out at 4pm.
We had really nice stay and hope we could back to there in summer, rather than miserable September.

“Excellent Apartment - Thoughtfully Equipped”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in this lovely old building with our two children (aged 11 and 7) for our summer holiday. We always stay at a different location along the Dorset coast every year and this is probably the cleanest and most well equipped accomodation ever. The owners have provided an incredibly well equipped kitchen, books, DVDs, games to play and TiVo for when you just want to be lazy! Would recommend for a great location - only a 5 mins to boscombe beach and pier, and maybe 25 mins walk (or even quicker by land train) to busy Bournemouth. This is a beautiful county and a Boscombe Reef Retreat is great base to explore it from.

Our whole experience with Boscome Reef Retreat was exceptional.Management friendly and helpful about getting in to the property early after a long flight. Access via back door very good for all the luggage we had. Flat comfortable. Area close to beach, shopping and many good restaurants.We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

“Loved it ....... Would without a doubt stay again.....”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We loved staying in this very lush apartment our children thought all the space and corridors were brilliant ....... Having a back to access to this apartment was a massive help with having 18 month old twins ........
The only little problem we came across was the parking space provided ..... But that was soon rectified
Just a very little tip for those with little children ..... As there is no door on the kitchen maybe a travel safety gate would be an idea ;)
Once again....... We had a fab family holiday xx thank u
