FAMILY'S INSIGHT "This was our mother's first venture into apartment living and she thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact she actually wished that she had made the move far earlier than she did. Having moved here from her previous house we found that it actually gave her a new 'lease of life' and she was able to get out and about far more than she did before. That fact that shops and amenities were just a short level walk away was also good for her as she was able to be a little more independent than she was previously. Having experienced this first hand then we would encourage people considering apartment life to make the move and enjoy it!"

"The family found that the facilities provided here at Dunboyne Court are superb. Independent living is encouraged whilst a restaurant is available and residents can socialise in one of two residents lounges, on the sizeable roof terrace or by partaking in a selection of regular social events."

"Situated within a short level walk of the extensive facilities of St Marychurch as well as Cary Park and the picturesque Babbacombe Downs the convenience of the location is something that our mother really enjoyed.We are sure that new owners will appreciate this when they move in to this lovely development and know this will also be a major consideration in them deciding that Dunboyne Court is the ideal new home for them".
