“An amazing house in a great location. Well equipped, clean and good fun.”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed as a part of a large work group for a week for the second year in a row. The house was fantastic: It had everything we needed and more. The rooms are great and the communal spaces are even better. The ping pong table room is a particular winner!

There is ample parking and the house is well located near the middle of Bournemouth and the beach. Would recommend to anyone needing a large house and will certainly be booking again in the future

“Could be a whole lot better”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

From the website, this accommodation looks great, but after getting through the door and having a good look, it definitely needs a spruce up and a deep clean !! The house was booked for a group of friends with children who were helping one of the group celebarate his 40th birthday and on the whole it fitted all of the groups needs, the best bit being the location to the town and beach.

The Bad bits.

The house wasn't very clean, it's obviously used more for Stag/Hen weekends as there were some Penis shaped confetti left on the dining table !! (Not good for the kids to find), there were dirty glasses left in the games room, accumulations of dirt behind the sofa etc etc.
Most of the doors have individual locks on and some are broke or are hanging off.
Most of the shower trays struggle to drain the water away so you're standing in a couple of dirty water.
The kitchen isn't adequate for large groups, even though there is a large oven in the basement, not a lot of storage space for food / drink etc.
The Hot Tub is a bit Heath Robinson, we booked this for the week but after trying to get it warm and failing we gave up and did not use it so therefore didn't pay the hire charge.
The friends that are in the cavities aren't good also, but aren't sure the owners know about them !! Need some pest control sorted.

Good bits.

The location is superb, very close to all amenities, especially the beach.
The rooms were good sizes and worked well for our group size.


Overall, if the place had a spruce up and a good clean I would recommend it.

It’s a big house and it’s fair to say that things can go wrong.

We have a 24 hour helpline and are normally quick at turning such issues around, we pride ourselves on helping guests with any issues that may arise.

On this occasion our on call support Staff were away on holiday so this was unfortunate the holiday cover was not to our usual standard.

Unless someone reports it to us then it can take longer to address.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention, of course we are taking steps towards taking immediate action and have addressed all of these comments. Part of this has involved a house keeping & maintenance staff review with a new regime. We have called in a specialist team to deal with rodent issues.

The Hot tub is advertised as a wood fired eco tub, it’s not a Jacuzzi.
It can work really well, especially for large groups staying for Weekends. In the winter the temperature can be harder to keep, although it is up to guests to take care of keeping the fire stoked and over the course of a week this can be much harder especially in the colder months.

The Surf Academy Staff come in each morning to stoke the fire for the tub, and they pre heat the water ready for when guests arrive. It is up to guests to be aware to not leave the lid off for long periods as it can get cold fast. If guests are out a lot during their stay then maintaining the fire will be that much harder too.

The house is for hire exclusively and as part of our respect to the guests we try to not impose too greatly on their space. We do have some Hen Party guests staying at the house, although we cater for everyone including large families. We don’t accept stag groups.

We are trying to get all of these issues resolved straight away, and we Thank you for your feed back and encourage this from our future guests so we can improve their stay at the Beach House.

I've just returned from a weekend staying in this house with a group of girls. On reading the reviews I was pretty nervous but to be fair I think they are a bit undeserved. The house could probably do with a coat of paint and a bit of N update but it's actually got so much going for it. I can't comment on B &B but as sole occupancy you couldn't really ask for anymore! Great location near the beach and walking distance to everything you need. Spacious house, lovely outdoor space for bbqs and enjoying the sunshine

“DO NOT GO HERE!”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Well I wished I looked at the reviews before I came here, myself and my boyfriend stayed here last night (28.03.16) and from the moment the door was answered I wanted to go home. A man came to the door in his socks and greeted us, took us through to the kitchen which had tools on the table, dirty bowls of pasta and sheets on the floor, he said sorry for the mess we just had a hen weekend... Even though they had 5 hours from check out till our arrival. Anyway we didn't get shown around the house just to our bedroom, luckily we got a choice of two, they both weren't great but one of them had wall paper hanging down and damp all over the walls so we picked the other room. No tea or coffee, no bin, very cold, two single beds put together and a bathroom which was outside in the hall way. As we left for dinner we crossed the owner in the hall and he didn't even acknowledge us. This morning we didn't even want to go and eat in the dinning room as the whole place was such a mess so we gave the man our keys and left. I will never go back there or recommend. I am feeling very glad that I paid for this on a Groupon voucher because otherwise I would be demanding my money back. If you are thinking of going here..DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!

“terrible place”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed one night through groupon at the end of Feb, all I can say is ideal for beach, we met a man didn't introduce himself or where anything was, took us to our room up in the loft, (3 floors up) bathroom down 2 flights of stairs, not big enough to swing a mouse let alone a cat, 2 single beds put together to make a double but kept falling down the gap, no tea/coffee in room, sheet didn't fit bed!!!, other guests carried plates/cups to their rooms, cornflakes/allbran of toast, didn't even have a coffee there, couldn't wait to find somewhere else for breakfast, worse place we've stayed in.
