Stay at Big Bird for outstanding scenery and coastal glamour. Paul and Nikki are thoughtful hosts... their boat is beautifully presented throughout and stocked with everything you could possibly need for a luxurious and fun weekend.

From the moment we stepped onto BigBird we knew that we had made the right choice. The accommodation has been lovingly thought about offering that feel of luxury and calmness. The views (where ever you look from ) are spectacular. The hosts have definitely gone that extra mile to ensure their guests have an experience that will stay with them as a wonderful memory......

Our stay on Paul and Nikki's boat was simply amazing. The hosts were helpful and communicative from the outset; responding to any questions I had and helping us with a parking space a few hours before check-in. Upon arrival Paul and Nikki transported our bags onto the boat and gave us a really helpful tour of the boat which made using the facilities effortless. We were also given lots of information about local amenities and took up the suggestion of a local Thai restaurant which proved to be really fantastic. The boat itself is just stunning! Every inch is designed for quality and seemingly nothing appears overlooked. The bed was really comfortable and the shower arguably better than mine at home. The kitchen facilities are great with everything you could need for this sort of stay. We made use of the bread and jam on offer to make jam on toast for breakfast. The views from the flybridge of the boat are absolutely incredible and most of our stay was spent in awe of the natural beauty of the harbour. I cannot recommend a stay on the Big Bird more highly and I'd look forward to returning.

Its not easy finding great places to stay in Poole. Big Bird offers a wonderful location, pristine accommodation, and a stay pretending to be one of the jet-set. We'll visit again.

We had a fabulous stay on Big Bird, wish there was one in every port , everything was perfect on board and with regards too the hosts. Only improvement would be to the standard of amenities near by and the ease of booking through air bnb.

We had a fantastic weekend aboard Big Bird! The boat itself was in great condition, clean and very comfortable. Our hosts were incredibly accommodating as we had time restraints and they were kind enough to work around them and most helpful with all local amenities. Thank you for a great stay, we will certainly keep you in mind for the future!

From the accurate description.... excellent decor and ambience, to the prompt and very helpful host communications .... this is a 'must stay' venue. Nestled quietly at the far end of Salterns Marina with uninterrupted views the Big Bird is simply 5* plus luxury. The boat is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was our maiden 'voyage' but will definitely not be our last.
