1Vetting

Every Property is personally visited and inspected by us for true family friendliness

When visiting a property, these are some of the questions we ask ourselves before considering it:

  • Is the location easy for families to get to?
  • What can families with small children do in the local area?
  • Are properties family sized?
  • Do cots fit comfortably in bedrooms and is the layout appropriate for families?
  • Where can children play while being watched by parents?
  • And loads more!

2Safety

Note: If a property doesn’t quite pass our 30-point safety check for any reason and we still think you’ll love it, we highlight any hazards we can’t take action on in our property descriptions and call them ‘Parent Points’.

A comprehensive 30-point family experience safety check is personally carried out by us at every property

During our property inspection, we personally identify and act to prevent hazards such as:

  • Ungated stairs
  • Sharp furniture corners
  • Gaps in balcony railings
  • Reachable cleaning chemicals and breakable ornaments
  • Flimsy cots/travel cots
  • Reachable blind or curtain cords
  • So many more!

Why we do it...

Wendy and Barnaby shand

“When my son Barnaby fell into an unenclosed swimming pool on a family holiday in France in 2005, it set an unstinting commitment to seek safe, family friendly holiday homes that provide the perfect backdrop for your holiday.

So in April 2006 I set up Tots To Travel, a specialist family friendly villa and resort company that started by asking the question...

"What really frustrates and worries mums and dads when they are planning, booking and going on holiday?"

...and then seeking to find solutions."
- Wendy Shand, Mum of three and founder of Tots to Travel
