Clean, well equipped apartment,great views, friendly owners.
This is a lovely apartment in just the right location for the English riviera, with in walking distance of Torquay and local transport. It was clean and comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. The beds were made and towels provided which was nice. It was also in a lovely quiet area, we and the children enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Terug in de tijd aan de engelse riviera
Villa Garda past helemaal bij het zuidelijke, zonnige sfeertje van Torquay. Op loopafstand van de boulevard en de nodige restaurantjes. Een ruime tuin rondom het huis, en een heel prettige grote eigen parkeergelegenheid. Wel kunnen wij ons voorstellen dat het up-to-date houden van huis en tuin veel tijd, geld en energie kost. We hopen dat Erica en haar familie daar in blijven slagen.

Great weekend visit
We had a lovely break here over the bank holiday weekend and were very impressed with the location and appearance of the house. Very clean and well presented and although simple and old fashioned it was ideal for a few days visit. Very close to the beach, in a quiet and peaceful street with views of the town. WiFi was good and convenient to have. Would definitely recommend to others!

Lovely stay
My partner and I stayed for a week during the summer. The location is great - only a 10 minute walk to the beach and the main area of Torquay and 5 minutes from the station. Beware, there is a very steep and challenging hill when going from the station. The apartment was adequate, with everything you need. The decor and furnishings were old fashioned but clean and comfortable. Good working wifi. You'll need £1 coins for your electricity. I don't think we put more than £2 or £3 in for the week, but we were hardly there.

Lovely setting
Nice quite flat near railway station and sea, comfortable beds milk in fridge coffee and tea suppied. The owner very friendly, but not intrusive,kitchen good with full size cooker and good microwave, little small but alright for two, the bathroom door would be better if it was a slider or consitina, because it opens to near the front door.

Prestigious old villa, large green garden and parking place and very friendly owners.
You can sit in the garden or enjoy the view to the old town and blue sea as you want. The villa was built 1870 and gives you an impression of architecture with value and style. The owners are very friendly give you many information for trips and offer their help when needed.
