We had a wonderful weekend stay in Maurice's lovely home. It is close enough for a nice walk down to the harbour and secluded enough for a peaceful rest. Large comfortable rooms with a nice breakfast and a very knowledgeable and helpful host. Highly recommended and hope to return again soon.

Maurice was a great host and it's a lovely house.I stayed in Room 1 which was large, light, pretty and clean with views towards the harbour. It's in a quieter area of Torquay so you're 5 mins walk to the centre but very quiet at night. Maurice could not have been more friendly and helpful- he even gave me a lift to a hillfort I needed to visit! Breakfast was lovely and the house is very close to shops if you need to buy food for lunch/dinner. There are also restaurants nearby. I would definitely recommend it and will be staying again if I'm ever in the area.

We spent a fantastic week staying with Maurice. We were in Torquay for the 29er national sailing championship where my daughter and a friend were competing. Maurice not only made us feel very welcome to his lovely house but went far beyond what anyone would expect from a host. Maurice was genuinely interested and supportive of the sailing and really helped with us dealing with wetsuits and all of clutter - definitely beyond the call of duty! The rooms are large and spacious - the photos do not do the house justice. A really great find.

We had a great experience at Maurice's home. Maurice is a lovely host, he is good company and he greeted us with tea and cake and provided a great breakfast. The house is beautiful and huge. A delight to stay. Highly recommended.

Our host Maurice made us extremely welcome from the moment we arrived, even down to baking a cake for us. Unfortunately we had to run off for a family meal and Maurice was very helpful and ensured we were familiar with access to his beautiful home. The area was beautiful and close to the town center although there is a slight hill. The description is fine and we would definitely return. Maurice prepared breakfast for us as well as the nicest coffee!!! Maurice sat and chatted with us and made us feel very welcome, he then even transported us to our wedding venue which was very kind of him.

This is my first time with Airbnb and it was absolutely a great experience. this is beyond what I expected. The room is well cleaned and spacious with classic decoration. The location is also nice close to town Center and tourist attraction. I loved the kent's cavern which is just 5 minutes away. Maurice is also such an amazing host. Torquay is amazing!

Werd thee gezet en typsiche Engelse scones voor ons gemaakt, die heerlijk waren.
