  • "Lovely place with a great view of the beach and coast."

    Great to be close enough to hear the sound of the sea. Place clean and everything you need. Parking off road and just outside the house. Two beaches within walking distance. Great to be able to go in the sea and walk back for a shower. Definitely plan to book that place again

  • "A delightful well equipped apartment overlooking Challaborough Bay with a great elevated view of the South Devon Coastline looking towards Plymouth and local for day trips to Dartmouth, Hope Cove and Salcombe."

    The apartment has everything in it that we expected during our one weeks’ late summer holiday and has a short walk to Bigbury-on-Sea beach and Burgh Island where trips to the Pilchard Inn can either acessed on foot when the tide is low or accessed using the Sea Tractor at high tide! We will definitely stay again. Only one maintenance issue during our stay was the window restrictor in the upstairs bedroom where it would have been more pleasant to be able to fully open the windows overlooking the sea using the key provided, but the lock was jammed so upon arrival during the hot weather the windows could not be fully opened to remove the heat. Conflicting responses received from Jane one the co-owner’s, Lesley the apartment manager and Alison the Sykes Rep, didn’t help and no resolution achieved!

  • "This is a superb site for rental."

    Ideal location. The view from the balcony was excellent. Very well appointed. A most ideal place to say. I can thoroughly recommend it and we will return. One thing, The address is incomplete and it makes finding the site very difficult. The house number was missing. It should have 51 Marine Drive Added to the address of 2 The Bay.

  • "Spacious with wonderful sea views."

    Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay. Only bit of maintenance required is the extract fan in the downstairs WC not working. Look forward to staying again.

  • "Comfortable and well equipped property."

    Every thing we expected. Elevated position gives great views down the coast and an arial view of the surfers below. It was quite windy! The nature of this part of South Devon means narrow roads and slow travelling!

  • "A truly amazing view with beautiful sunsets, stunning."

    Very comfortable accommodation, a perfect place to relax and chill out with trips to the beaches and near by towns. We had some hot water issues for the first few days. The brolly on the balcony was broken, it can get very sunny mid afternoon onwards. Note - there is some major building works going on at the next door property which we were not informed about - it was occasionally noisy from 8am and at periods throughout the day until 4pm.

    Beautiful location & amazing views. The TV guide instructions in the book do not match how to operate the TV there is no mention of choosing the source for HDMI etc. Tried calling the manager but no answer don’t know if no in book is out of date. Book needs updating. We had no hot water for at least 4 days a pump had broken & was not repaired i till Friday afternoon not pleasant showing in cold water after a day on the beach. Was disappointing considering the cost of the rental,

    When not at the beach we loved sitting on the balcony, taking in the amazing, uninterrupted view of the coastline. We hope to be back again soon.

    It met all of our needs. We found the hob very difficult to use but the management did come and show us how it worked. It remained temperamental throughout the week. We are booking again for next year which shows how great the accommodation is
