Welcome to Star of the Sea

A lot of care and design talent was invested into your new, coastal home. From beautiful lounge spaces with open fireplaces, to intimate and comfortable sitting rooms and generously sized rooms, no expense has been spared in creating Star of the Sea.

If independence is important to you, but you’d like support as you age, we think you’ll be happy here.

Keep as busy, active and social as you like. Our lifestyle program includes:

  • Daily exercise classes
  • Indoor bowls
  • Games
  • Craft and knitting groups
  • Happy hour
  • On-site hair and beauty salon


As a Catholic organisation, we also offer Mass, rosary and other religious services. You don’t need to be Catholic to join, we welcome people from diverse cultures and faiths.

Enjoy all that Torquay has to offer, with daily walking groups, regular bus outings, and a full lifestyle calendar.

Our approach to care is second to none.

Though the bricks and mortar surroundings are impressive, we know it’s the support and care that’s most important.  We’re all about you.  So, what does that mean to us?

The VMCH Care Practice is designed to support you to live the life you choose. We value you as an individual; ensuring whatever you get up to during the day revolves around your own personal needs and desires, not a prescriptive list of tasks.

We support you to achieve your full potential, maintain dignity, foster choice, promote wellbeing and keep community connections alive and well.

If you’re in need of a little support, then look no further than our Pastoral Care services. We’re here to lend an ear, celebrate your joys, talk about what’s important to you and help you practice your faith if you so desire.

Respite care places are offered upon availability.
