I have been hosting for five years and live near the beach and town. The house is opposite a public golf and fitness centre with lots of activities and picnic areas near the lake. My two sons are now grown up and no longer living with me. I work as a Marketing Consultant from home. I enjoy gardening, sports and the outdoors. The bedrooms are beautifully kept and the house is very large and luxurious in a residential tree lined avenue opposite a golf course and park with lake. The house is quiet and in a safe area, however a short stroll takes you into the busy cosmopolitan area of Charminster with shops and restaurants. and night life. The short bus ride to Bournemouth town centre and beach runs every five minutes from the top of the road. There is a running track and nature walks in the park and I offer free use of my tennis facilities near by. A fitness centre with swimming pool is opposite the road across the park. A two course meal can be provided at an extra cost by arrangement. Laundering of bed clothes is free once per week. Personal washing will incur a small charge. Additional Information - I charge a small fee of £7.00 to wash and dry a personal laundry load to cover my time and electricity - The room rate includes the following services: regular room cleaning and internet access. Plus continental breakfast and use of microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. There is plenty of parking and a secure area for bikes. We are also opposite Fitness First across the park.
