“Great Vacation Rental”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent 3 nights here in May 2016 for a family weekend (8 adults). This cottage certainly lives up to its name – great views of the harbour and out to sea. The house is pretty much as advertised. The building is on 4 floors (the stairs are steep, with shallow treads, making this home unsuitable for those with mobility issues). The kitchen is well equipped with table and chairs for 8. The house appears to have updated recently (new carpeting, laminate hardwood, and fresh paint) and was clean. Beds were comfortable and toilet facilities were good. We appreciated the on-site laundry. The cottage is in a great location a 5-7 minute walk to the harbour (from which tours/ferries to Torquay depart) and the nearby restaurants. As street parking is limited, we parked and the left the car in place for 3 days (Tesco Express and Co-Operative Food 15 minute walk). The owner was prompt in responding to messages and even reached out to us by email after check in time to see that everything was ok for us. As with other private homes we’ve stayed in, there were minor irritants but none were deal-breakers. My suggested improvements include room darkening curtains (bring a sleep mask if this is an issue for you), and patio furniture to accommodate 8 adults for a meal would be appreciated (through there are additional folding chairs for simply enjoying the view). In summary, good location, amazing view, very good value for money.

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

In our party there were six adults and four children (all under 9 years old), so the accommodation was perfect for us. The view, from three rooms, is certainly outstanding. There are several paths or stepped walkways down to the harbour (a bit of a climb for the return!) and a bus stop pretty well outside the door so a car isn't necessary if your stay is for a few days. Parking (we had three cars) was a bit of an issue, but we eventually found places.

As the property is over four floors there are a lot of stairs and you need to pass through one of the main bedrooms to access another - but it's a holiday, all part of the experience. Perhaps one or two additional easy chairs in the lounge would be good and a better welcome pack (without the strange jokes and guidance for school governors???).

Bottom line is that we'd consider booking again a thoroughly recommend 'The View'.

Arrived late at night, parking was a problem as spaces outside the property are few.The house is spacious and has everything you would need.Stairs between floors are very steep so not suitable for people with mobility issues.Patio had great view onto the harbour and the boats.The property is up on the hillside which is steep if you walk it however we just hopped in a taxi ,walking down was fine.The house has a great kitchen with everything you need, comfy lounge, plenty of bedroom space. Bathrooms - showers were not great, perhaps these need updating .
