“Wonderful family break”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We will definitely book to come back here. It's a lovely house. Very modern and clean, comfortable beds and great for families. It is also a very good location as you are 10min drive into Bournemouth and not far from Poole or sandbanks. Thank you for a lovely holiday!

“Nice but....”

Overall the property is very lovely, it's brand new as is all of the furniture so obviously there are no issues there!
On the downside, there was no internet but this was communicated prior to arrival to be fair. The parking situation is far from ideal - a 9 home development with 9 parking spaces. Groups of people in more than one car beware as the development residents get really quite upset if you park in the wrong spot! Other cars (we had 2 cars for 2 couples) have to park down the street which was annoying.
The house is very very hot since the front is very glass heavy which made sleep very uncomfortable.
The last thing which is really the only reason we wouldn't come back is the situation with breakages. We didn't break anything so this didn't cause us issues but the book of fees made us feel like we were booked into a museum. The book says how they understand breakages do happen etc...then leave a price list to replace things! A teaspoon was £1.18 each (!), it was all a bit much. I grew up in a hotel for 23 years and things do break that's part of business. At the end of a season i'd expect to go to ikea to buy a few little replacements (funnily enough the glasses were only 86p making the teaspoon costs a bit daft). It seems the owners don't expect this and don't really expect to do a great deal of cleaning or empty the bins after a stay (all of which incur a charge for non compliance).

Overall a nice place - but do not bring children. You will spend the entire time panicking that they'll leave a mark or break something and you end up having to leave cash on the kitchen top! It was all a bit too formal for us and for the price of it next time we'd just book a few rooms at a hotel and not spend our time away worrying.

Thank you for your review.
All positive and negative points are always welcome as we do act upon criticisms and good ideas when offered.
You mention that the internet provision has not yet been enabled by BT; as you point out you were informed of this in advance.
You were also advised that there is only one reserved parking space at this property and that there is plenty of on road parking both to the front and the rear of the development for more vehicles. If you chose to ignore this and park in other residents parking spaces you should not be surprised to be faced with angry resident’s protests. This is applies to all shared parking facilities in apartments and private estates like ours; no doubt you would also be upset if someone parked in your only parking space when you returned home. All our on-line advertising, including that on HomeAway through whom you booked, clearly shows the parking facilities available at this house in Tuckton.
The house is south-west facing and benefits from sunshine from noon to sundown; the bedrooms have full-height glazing including windows and full patio doors that open onto the private balcony.
You mention that you were raised in a hotel for 23-years; you are not comparing like with like. Self-catering accommodation is nothing like a hotel; the facilities and service functions are entirely different. In the UK it is standard practice to ask guests to empty bins and take away their unused food when they leave, and to also pay for damage and breakages. We have been providing 4-star self-catering accommodation in Bournemouth for over 6-years and have had hundreds of very happy guests stay with us, we apply the same standards and procedures to all our properties and this new house is no different. In fact we have never had to ask a guest for extra payments from their security deposits; you were no different. We accept that accidents do happen and that is why we didn’t mention the stains on the carpet in the lounge and the burn ring on the dining table, your security deposit was returned in-full on-time.
Perhaps you would be kind enough to return the babies blanket you took by mistake when you left.
Again, thank you for your comment and do enjoy your future breaks in accommodation more suited to your needs.
