“Excellent large apartment near to beach”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Had a great time at Lazy Days, apartment is much larger than it appears in the photos, is great for children as its all on one floor and has everything you need.

The owners Ruth and Phil were really helpful and welcoming, they had also left toys out for our son to play with when we arrived.

Location wise its a short walk to the beac, the nearby play park and Southbourne high street. There are lots of nice cafe's nearby, our favourites were Urban Reef (on Boscombe beach front) and Deli Rocks in Southbourne.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Lovely apartment with friendly owners”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The apartment is a lovely size and well furnished - we had everything we needed for our weeks stay (and the toys were an added bonus!!)
Good location for Riva beach and an easy walk into Boscombe, only a few mins drive to the centre of Bournemouth
The owners are very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome
Would go back again

“Perfect: great place, bright, spacious, comfy, clean and a short walk to the beach”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at Lazy Days with our two year old son and had a brilliant time. The owners made sure there were toys, a cot and a high chair for our son.
The ground floor apartment was spacious, bright, clean and exceeded our expectations, there was everything you needed in the kitchen and the living room was large and comfy.
We were initially a little wary about booking as the owners live upstairs, this was definitely not a concern as they were really nice people who were there if you needed them with advice etc, however left you in peace and privacy the rest of the time.
The beach is lovely and literally 5 mins walk and Bournemouth is a short drive. There's beautiful cliff top walks at the end of the road and a cliff lift to the beach if you are feeling a bit tired. if you are feeling like an adventure/walk Muddeford with its bistro and beach huts and Christchurch with its abbey are within a strapping walk.
There's lots of places to eat in or take away looking out over the sea bistros, bars etc. We had good Fish and Chips from Tomlins a 7-10min walk away.
There's also a large TV, DVD's and a comfy sofa for lazy rainy days.
We really enjoyed our stay and will be recommending Lazy Days to family and friends and also thinking about when we can next stay.

“Excellent”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

As stated in other reviews, close to everything you need and a great location! Ruth and Phil could not be more friendly and accommodating! Great with our two young children which is fantastic. This holiday home is very spacious with the bonus of a garden area. It was clean and had everything required for our break!
Thanks again for helping us have a fantastic time!!

“Amazing! Would never stay anywhere else!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed at Lazy Days with my family the week of August 12th 2014. Phil and Ruth were very welcoming and always accommodating if we had any requests or questions. Walking distance from the beaches, restaurants, bars and equipped with absolutely everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We have been visiting Bournemouth for many years and usually stay in a caravan but after staying at Lazy Days we would never stay anywhere else again!!!!!
Thanks Phil and Ruth and Family for an excellent vacation experience!!!!

“Great flat, great location and great owners who were very friendly & helpful”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Much more spacious than we had anticipated. More than enough space for a family of 5. Well equipt and clean. This is a great flat in a great location. Quiet residential street, 5 min walk from beautiful beach and lovely sea view bistro, 10 min drive into Bournemouth. Loads to see and do in the surrounding areas. We found the owners very warm, friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back and recommend to friends. We had a wonderful holiday.

“Very spacious, quiet location, ideal for beach or as a sightseeing base”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This property exceeded our expectations, very spacious rooms and the garden area is an added bonus. Close to the beach and within easy walking distance of a pub with food and a bistro, both with sea views. Shops also nearby to stock up on supplies. Ideal for a family or 1/ 2 couples, we would have no hesitation in returning, especially with the grandchildren next time. The owners live above and made us feel very welcome.
