Trip Adviser Review – Bob &Caroline

Bournemouth, United Kingdom
“A perfect villa escape for lovers ….”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
You know when you read an amazing review of a holiday destination that makes it sound fantastic, when you arrive there, a part of you wonders if it could ever live up to that expectation …. well, be prepared to be amazed!! This villa is so much more than the photos, the description and the reviews can properly convey.

We arrived feeling jaded late in the evening and were greeted by a vision of softly flickering lights, stunning pool, friendly smiles and a warm welcome from the owners, Graham and Julia, (who conveniently live just five minutes away.) The villa quite literally took our breath away.
It’s not just the overall beauty of the villa and its gardens, but the small romantic touches like the rose petals on the bed which made this place feel like a honeymoon destination – even if you are not on your honeymoon.
We particularly loved the double bed on the roof terrace from which we watched the sun setting each evening. It was a perfect end to a perfect day.
Graham and Julia couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful, from the thoughtfully prepared welcome pack, to arranging car hire and offering endless lifts to local shops and amenities on the days that we didn’t have a car. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we so appreciated their kindness.
On the subject of car hire, this could not have been easier. We spoke to Graham. The car was delivered and collected to the door of the villa by Mo (the friendly owner of the local car hire company) with the minimum of paperwork and none of the usual insurance sales you come to expect these days.
We could go on, but in essence, this is definitely a villa escape for lovers whether on their honeymoon or just practicing……
Thank you Graham and Julia for an unforgettable holiday. We are definitely coming back !!
