Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • As we came to Gary's house the first impression was - this guy worked in hotel business before. The house is in a totally quiet area of Torquay. Around the corner of the house you have nice view to the sea. The room (with view to the garden) is nicely equipped with private bathroom - we felt like in a hotel (local brochures, welcome chocolate)

    Gary himself is a very courteous and interesting host. If we ever come back to Torquay again we for sure will stay at his place again.
    Thanks for all Gary !

    Response from Gary:

    Thanks for your kind comments guys, glad you had a nice time here. You are most welcome to stay with us in the future if you want to stay in Torquay again.

  • Our stay in Gary and Steve´s house was short but we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had our own bedroom with a small bathroom en suite, everything super clean and tidy. The room had a lookout to the garden and was very cosy and comfortable.
    Gary and Steve were wonderful hosts, always willing to chat, but respecting our privacy. They also gave us good tips to get around Torquay (btw. a place you want to visit!). Next time we´ll definitely stay longer.

    Hi Marika, glad you enjoyed your stay, we would love to see you return, you are most welcome.

  • Mats and I had a fantastic time at Gary and Steve's house. The room was absolutely splendid and extremely comfortable. If we go to Torquay again, we will definitely come back to their place. Gary also took us for a little cruise around the area as we don't have a car with us, which was more than what we'd expect. Thanks guys. You made our visit in Torquay, unforgettable.
