“Fantastic - highly recommended!”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days stay at Life's a Beach, a clean, modern and spacious apartment situated on a lovely quiet road, walking distance to Boscombe beach/pier and close enough to all amenities! We certainly will be returning and many thanks James for your help in co ordinating our surprise get together!!

“Lovely apartment, everything you need to enjoy your time beside the seaside!”

We spent an enjoyable weekend in the apartment, which had plenty of rooms for the 3 adults and 4 children we had in our party. The apartment was modern, clean and well-decorated. There was everything you would need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay - the children particularly enjoyed playing on the Wii. The location was perfect, with a short walk to Boscombe beach and pier and then a longer, but not too long, amble along the sea front to Bournemouth beach and pier. We will definitely be returning - hopefully to also make use of the beach hut!

“Great place great value”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Have just spent a week at 'Life's a Beach' and in spite of indifferent weather we had a great time. The apartment is very well appointed, clean tidy and everything that it claims to be. The location was very good for us; ideal for the beach and The New Forest and not far from vibrant Bournemouth.

The owner James was very welcoming and extremely helpful he provided us with tips and information that made our stay even more enjoyable. No 'buts' or 'howevers' just superb

Thanks Geoff and Celia
