We love to chat however we do respect your privacy and are happy to leave you to enjoy your getaway break.

I love the trees, the breeze and the scent of far off shores. This is a vibrant yet peaceful community with excellent cultural connections and plenty to see and do. I love the Art cafe on Ebrington Street…. and the squirrels in the park!

This was our first experience of airbnb and we choose well. Maxine was a great host with great communication from booking to check out. The residence is well equipped and comfortable, situated a short walk to the harbour, Barbican area and the Hoe. We look forward to a return visit.

Maxine couldnt be more helpful, she supplied food, wine and flowers, plenty of tea and coffe, and the kitchen was totally equiped. Just like your own kitchen, but nicer.

A great location to explore the surrounding areas, Plymouth has plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you occupied, we particularly liked exploring national parks which we drove to daily. The apartment has everything you need for a very comfortable stay.

Maxine User Profile

I am a creative Artist and educator. I love photography, making things, reading, talking, teaching and drinking earl grey tea!
I have been showing people how to make lampshades, and am currently hand-hooking a stair carpet, attending upholstery classes and doing a business course! I love plant and flowers, the environment, and restoring old houses. I raised my three children in Cornwall after moving there in 1981 although I am a East Londoner (Cockney) by birth.
I speak a little Italian and French and love to meet people of all ages and cultures. I am happy to help with travel arrangements and anything else to ensure your stay is as simple as possible. I have been hosting educational travellers from all over the uk and abroad since 2007 and am willing to facilitate impromptu or late night arrivals if problems crop up.
I live nearby with my partner, Lee, where we have a lovely Victorian walled garden with fruit bushes, fish ponds and two soppy ducks, called Duchess and Daisy!
