About the Owner

I am a barrister and moved to Exeter from London 15 years ago when I purchased the near derelict Georgian terrace that is now my home and where apartment@26 takes up the top 2 floors. I redesigned the garden where I grow vegetables and have fruit trees as well as play space for the dog. I love the local food, arts and crafts and as I get the apartment set up I am always on the look out for something new - details of the craftsmen can be found in the welcome pack.

Falconry is a great hobby as are gardening; dancing and dog walking. I also have a cat called Monty and a Little Owl, Theia in the aviary at the bottom of the garden. I look forward to welcoming you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The welcome pack is really very nice and the toiletries a nice touch. The beds are comfortable and the linen lovely. Thank you so much for the street map, it was helpful to have. Aside from the blip with the Internet we didn't have any problems,

I've been there with my family for five days. The house is fantastic and it is situated in a good position (not far from the city centre). I really recommend it, especially if you are looking for a cozy and nice place to stay.

Schade eigentlich

  • 2 of 5

Die Vermieterin war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Zur Begrüssung fanden wir in der Wohnung Kaffee, Tee, Milch, Orangensaft, Brötchen, Cornflakes, Marmelade und Honig vor.

Die Wohnung liegt zentral. Zum Stadtzentrum waren es nur einige Gehminuten. Für unseren PKW gab es in der Nähe einen Parkplatz.

Die Wohnung erstreckte sich über zwei Etagen und ist für drei Personen optimal.

Zu bemängeln war, dass die Wohnung vor dem häuslichen Niederlassen erst einmal komplett gereinigt werden musste. Badezimmer und Küche waren mehr als schmutzig.....

Insgesamt war die Wohnung gut ausgestattet, über die Art und Weise wie man eine Wohnung möbliert lässt sich mit Sicherheit streiten....

Nicht aber über gewisse Anforderungen von Sauberkeit.

Schade eigentlich.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I am sorry about the kitchen and bathroom on this occasion and wish that my guests had said something at the time as I could have rectified the problem.. I am now not certain what the problem as the apartment is always thoroughly cleaned before any guest arrives. I am so sorry to my guests and will double check the situation in future.

Schade eigentlich.......

  • 2 of 5

Wir haben die Vermieterin als eine sehr nette Dame kennengelernt. Bei der Anreise fanden wir in unserer Wohnung Kaffee, Tee, Milch, Orangensaft, Honig und Brötchen vor.

Das Appartement war gut ausgestattet. Alle wichtigen Geräte waren ausreichend vorhanden.

In der Nähe gab es für unseren PKW einen Parkplatz.

Teile der Wohnungseinrichtung machten einen neuwertigen Eindruck.

Das Zentrum ist fussläufig sehr gut erreichbar.

Das Appartement ist für drei Personen ausreichend groß.

Aber: Es war einfach nicht sauber! Das Appartement haben wir erst einmal geputzt. Es kann und darf nicht sein, dass ich die DNA-Hinterlassenschaften meines Vormieters beseitigen muss.

Auch der in die Jahre gekommene verlegte Teppich machte keinen hygienischen Eindruck.

Schade eigentlich......
