It had everything you wanted on a family holiday... sandpit, games room, spacious living zones, gorgeous kitchen, bathrooms and decor all around. Close to everything in Torquay. Marco and Natalia went above and beyond to make our stay exceptional. Thank you!

Comfortable, clean and well equipped made it tempting to just hang around the house!! We did however take in the beach beauty that Torquay has to offer.
