TWO new and ‘luxury’ beach hideaways are open for guests in Bournemouth.

The Beach House and The Shell House are described as being at the “Sandbanks level of luxury accommodation'.

The two new holiday homes have been introduced by mother and daughter Rachel and Grace Hutson, also founders of Neverland London - an urban beach tucked away in the capital.

Last summer, they purchased The Beach House in St Michael's Road and embarked on a £400,000 renovation project.

The finished product was a four-storey property covering 2,500 sq ft, boasting seven en-suite bedrooms, two spacious kitchens/dining areas, two sitting rooms, and a split-level terrace and garden.

The sister property, The Shell House, was purchased and renovated at the beginning of this year, and is located nearby in Purbeck Road.

The property has three en-suite bedrooms, two further bedrooms with a shared family bathroom, one kitchen and living area, one dining room, and outside open space.

There is also a large family room consisting of an open plan kitchen, dining, and large French doors onto the garden.

The Beach House can accommodate up to 20 people, while The Shell House caters for groups of 12 – and both are dog-friendly.

Each guest is provided with a welcome pack at both properties which includes teas, coffees, a complimentary bottle of prosecco and a selection of savoury and sweet confectionery.

The Hutsons spent more than £1million creating the two new holiday homes, which are just a five minute walk to the beach.

Rachel said: “Just as we infused Shoreditch’s essence into Fulham with the Beach Club, our vision for The Beach and Shell Houses was to introduce 'Sandbanks' level luxury accommodation to beautiful Bournemouth.

"We’re extremely proud of the look and feel of both properties and having grown up in the area, I have a real soft spot for this part of the world and the rejuvenation of seaside resorts.

“This endeavour was a dream come true for me - taking a run of the mill residential property and giving it a ‘changing rooms-esque’ makeover that reflects the splendour of the surroundings, exudes modern luxury, yet maintains that comforting, homely ambiance.”
