The Quays proved to be the best house we could have wanted
The Quays guest book review from a pre Christmas Get together
The best house we could have wanted for 8 adults and 11 children (who had the best time!) – everything we needed, such a well stocked comfortable house. We will be back to glorious Christchurch and The Quays.

A return visit to Quay House is a must!
Quay House was a fabulous venue for this long awaited get together.
Quay House was a fabulous venue for a long over-due get together with friends. The house was so spacious (the pictures do not do it justice!), there was 15 of us and no time did the house feel congested. Quay House was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Bedrooms were very comfortable. Location of the house is fantastic, everything right on the doorstep but still in a quiet location. A return visit is a must for me.
5 star review from Grandma for Quay Corner August 2021
Thank you Grandma for leaving a lovely informatiove 5 star review for Quay Corner.
Quay Corner was ideal for our family: Grandma, Grandad, Uncle, Auntie, Mum, Dad, children 7 and 9 and 2 dogs. With 3 bathrooms and an excellent walk in shower there were no problems in the morning. Carpeted throughout meant noise of early rising children and dogs did not disturb sleepers. Good size tables inside and out for family meals, nice to have serving dishes and plenty of crockery. The only warning to give is the stairs might be a problem for someone with mobility issues, both flights are steep, narrow and have a sharp turn at the bottom. Any problems or queries we had were dealt with promptly. The central position and parking for 4 cars meant that we did not have to worry about parking. We were able to walk to a splash park, and 2 play parks 10 minutes. Castle ruins, medieval house ruins, Priory, 10 mins Ferry and river 10 mins, Shops 2 mins, Waitrose and Sainsbury 10 mins by car. Visited Bournemouth Aviation Museum, lots of hands on activity, Bovington Tank Museum, Great day out Snowtrax fun morning, Special lunch at Harbour Hotel, Upper deck restaurant highly recommended ( great understanding of allergies) We had a lovely holiday and will defintely retrun to Quay Corner
Excellent accommodation for our family celebration
“Excellent accommodation for our family celebration with plentiful crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen utensils of a good quality. Very comfortable and ideally situated for shops, restaurants and the quay side. It was a delight for all of us to be able to sit and dine together and for the grandchildren to have a garden to play in. Can recommend.”
Lovely spacious property in a great location
Sounds like the children of this family loved Quay House in Christchurch with it’s secure garden and children’s bedroom.
‘A lovely spacious property, in a great location for exploring the area. In particular, the garden was really nice and being able to lock the gate, meant we knew the children were safe playing outside. Our younger children really enjoyed the playroom; having stories to read was great, as we’d forgotten to pack books! Thanks for a lovely stay.’
Great review for The Quays!
What a lovely house! Such a great weekend (despite the weather), hope to visit again (every year!!)

A Special Celebration!
Celebrating 50 years of marriage!
A lovely weekend – luckily we got our Hengistbury Head walk in before Storm Ciara hit…. 3 generations loved the space and the well equipped kitchen. And the fresh flowers were a lovely welcome!

Great Space, Great Location
Great space, ideal for family / friends get together. Bathrooms sparkly clean. Great location, near all amenities , shops , restaurants yet very quiet.
Thank you for a lovely stay in this fabulous extended family size home. Everything we needed was here and the location was great. November weather very kind, we enjoyed visiting the lovely beaches, with the children and dogs enjoyed!
Our annual stay here has been fabulous once again. We love it here and we’re sorry to leave, it feels like our second home.
Many special memories made!

Our annual family outing!
Grandma, Grandpa, two daughters, two son-in-laws and four adventurous teenage boys. Unfortunately weather variable but that didn’t stop us. Managed two days on the beach and in the sea. Plenty of cycle routes (bought cycles with us and kept in shed). Cycled to Bournemouth, Grandma went on a zip wire for the first time in her life. Plenty to do in the locality – plenty of green and pine locally for football, cricket etc.
Great house ideally situated, very comfortable and well equipped.
An amazing family weekend in a fantastic property. Weather not great but didnt spoil our enjoyment. And one generation managed to run in and out of the sea very quickly! Lovely evenings spent around the dining table with lots of chat and laughter. The perfect property for a family group of 3 generations. Cant wait to come back. Thank you so much.
We’ve had the most amazing weekend in this outstanding, luxurious, fantastic property. Everything about the house has just added to a really perfect weekend. 13 of us from the ages of 13 through to 88 have enjoyed this location, the garden, all the lovely spacious bedrooms and most of all the meals we’ve had around the huge dining table.We would all love to come back again next year.
Well equipped property with excellent living space for the group. Location was fabulous for the town and even better we could all park which is tough to find in the area. You need to be aware that being so central comes with the sounds of Christchurch itself. Light sleepers may hear the bells, but it comes part of being so central! Would definitely recommend and return to the property, exactly as described.
Had an amazing stay – Lovely to have all the family together, perfect for all of us.
Thank you so much

Amazing place, perfect location right in the centre of Christchurch… Has everything you need and plenty of room for all our 3 generations of family. Lovely welcome hamper was a nice touch. Caroline was very helpful, thank you for such a fabulous weekend home from home. Would definitely stay again.
We crabbed. We went on a boat. We tried a kayak. We explored. Would highly recommend this place. Thank you

Perfect in every way!
Quay House was certainly a hit for a 60th birthday celebration.
An unforgettable weekend with 14 friends to celebrate my 60th, Quay House was perfect in every way, such a beautiful home.
I hope to come back another time, there’s so much still to see.
A Beautiful house and a lovely town excited to be coming back next week and would definitely recommend coming to stay here to all family and friends.

The House itself was First Class!
Quay House was ideal for our group of 14 adult cyclists. The location near the centre of Christchurch was ideal with its range of eating and drinking venues a short stroll away. The house itself was first class with all the rooms furnished and finished to a very high standard. The large, well equipped kitchen and dining room were perfect for breakfasts and a group evening meal. We also enjoyed the beautiful garden with its outside dining / seating area. The generous welcome pack was also a really nice touch. I’m pretty sure a proposal to return to Quay House next year would be met with a big ‘thumbs-up’ from everyone in our group.
Caroline and the team at Short Stay Homes were extremely helpful prior to arrival, providing advice and assistance with our reservation, as well as local knowledge about the area. Thanks for a great time.

A Fantastic Stay.
5* Trust Pilot review
We had a fantastic stay at Quay House in Christchurch: it is a beautiful period house in a really magical part of the world. The house is extremely well – equipped and caters very well to a large group staying there – with enough bed space, seating, cooking and dining space for all. Quay House is right in the heart of town so you can walk to the shops and pubs, and it is right next to the historic Priory. There is a great walk, involving a sweet little ferry boat trip, to Hengistbury Head nature reserve from the house which I would really recommend. Caroline was prompt and helpful in her responses to questions, and was flexible in terms of check-in and check-out times. I would definitely stay here again!

Guest book and 5* HomeAway reviews for Quay House
Good customer service providing excellent, accurate and useful property details before arrival. In a very good location, quiet but near the town, the house is well maintained, clean and very well furnished. A day trip to Mudeford Sandbank via the ferry with time spent on the beach went down well with three generations as did a walk on Hengistbury Head. Highly recommend this property for any group, same age or mixed generations.
Excellent house for a 40th Birthday celebration – 3 generations – all had a great time.
