  • "Super light spacious apartment."

    Plenty of room for 3 generations of the family to spread out. An excellent cream tea & Prosecco were waiting for us on arrival & owner very helpful with any queries. Great location with lots to do within walking distance and plenty more a short drive away. Very impressed with the local cafes, restaurants but also a couple of supermarkets very near together with independent bakers, fishmongers etc. Really appreciated the en-suite to all double rooms and parking for 2 cars Thoroughly recommend.

  • "A lovely apartment with stunning view over the bay."

    It is clean, neatly furnished with style, well equipped with everything you need in a small kitchen. The living area is wonderful, very open and spacious and enters out on to a beautiful patio area. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean and functional. The welcome pack of scones and jam and cream was very nice, thanks. All in all. A wonderful apartment.

  • "Gorgeous appartment, beautifully decorated and very clean."

    The sofas and beds were extremely comfortable and breakfast on the large terrace overlooking the bay was a great start to the day! The kitchen, although small, is very well equipped with everything you’d need - soap, washing up liquid, dishcloths, tea towels, dishwasher tablets, bin bags, tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper. The welcome gifts of milk, scones, jam, cream, prosecco and a selection of fruit were a lovely touch and we had great fun playing jenga a few times as well as settling down as a family in the eve to watching films on Netflix. The bathrooms were a good size, stocked with liquid soap and spare toilet roll and all showers had great water pressure - we had one minor issue with the temperature of one shower but the owners were quick to respond and very friendly. The ground floor utility room was great too and we managed to dry most bits on the airer. If the weather had been colder or wetter though a washer-dryer might have been useful. We and our teen boys really loved the area of Babbacombe- relaxing, scenic and not in your face busy. There are several cafes along the sea front, and a hotel that does a lovely Sunday carvery. A few mins walk away you’ll find a very well stocked Tesco metro but, if you fancy a break from cooking, there is a good indian takeaway and fish and chip shop round the corner plus a number of chains & independent places will deliver via app. There is so much to do and see locally-our highlights were a ride on the vernacular railway down to the beach, a visit to the Cary Arms (great food and fantastic treatments in their spa), go carting at Dawlish and an hour’s rib ride boat trip (run by Torquay water sports) where we were lucky enough to see dolphins. Overall, a great week’s holiday in a fantastic apartment!

  • "Exceptionally comfortable accommodation."

    It was welcoming with little touches like fresh flowers, fruit, wine and cream tea. Fabulous views over the bay which can be enjoyed from the outside terrace. Lots of things to do for the family in walking distance.
