My home is in a quiet neighbourhood 5 minutes walk from Truro railway station. It will take just 10-15 minutes to walk to the city centre to enjoy shopping or the nightlife in the many traditional Cornish pubs, variety of restaurants and takeaways. My home is drenched in light due to the location and the neighbourhood is very quiet. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. In summer, one of my uni age children may be home but otherwise it is just me and the cat.

The space

I have only one room for rental, a double, with a comfortable bed and wardrobe space. You will get a clean towel and if you stay longer than a week, I will wash it for you. You will be able to hang it to dry either outside or inside, but please do so. I like to offer continental breakfast (I would hate to send you off hungry!) and being vegetarian, I stock up on things such as soya milk, nuts, etc., so please request that if you prefer before arrival. Breakfast will be set-up for you in the dinning room early in the morning. If you do not want breakfast please let me know.

Guest access

You will have access to your room, bathroom, dinning room for breakfast and tea etc. If you would like to prepare a sandwich or a light meal, you are welcome to, provided you tidy up after yourself. To eat, please use the dinning room rather than your bedroom. You can also enjoy the garden if you wish:).
From 11pm please keep noise to a minimum. I get up early and I will do the same in return in the morning.

Interaction with guests

I am happy to help you with any thing you may need, just ask:)

Other things to note

All prices are based per person and I am happy to accommodate one or two people in the double.
Pets may be allowed on request in exceptional circumstances - please ask.

Good value, very pleasant stay. Thais is very kind and hospitable. Bed comfortable and drink making facilities in the room. Lovely breakfast of cereal and toast with excellent choice. Will definitely come again if I need to stay in the same area.

The room was lovely, in a very quiet part of Truro, yet still within close proximity to the train station, centre of town, and bus routes to other Cornish settlements. As a host, I don't think anyone can compete with Thais. She was so warm and welcoming that it was like visiting a friend from the start, and she went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. This was our first Airbnb experience, and it was a wonderful one.

Thais is an amazing host and the house is superb. Very near the train station and town is a 10 minute walk away. 10/10 would visit again.

I am originally from Brazil and I work part-time as a lecturer in Animal Conservation and Welfare in Newquay. Everything 'green' interests me and I am a keen bird watcher/lover. My home is now an empty 'nest' as my grown-up children have gone to Uni. As I love meeting people, I decided to rent 2 rooms in Airbnb. I share my home with my 9 year old Calico cat, called Dora and she was adopted about 3 months ago, so we are still getting to know each other. She is a character, very playful and friendly:).
