  • "All I can say is Wow."

    This apartment is by far the best for views and comes with a wrap around balcony. It was clean and tidy. On arrival we found fresh flowers, cake and tea bags. That was a very nice surprise. Thank you for a great stay. We shall be back.

    Many many thanks Mr Clarke² Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at number 27."

    The views were much better than the photos, the kitchen was well equipped. The super king bed was very comfortable and huge! Our only negative feedback is that the property could do with a thorough clean throughout, lots of dust everywhere, I dropped my makeup brush behind the dressing table and when I pulled the unit out there were two old face masks and old packs of pain killers. We took our toddler on this trip with us and he was regularly pushing his toy cars under sofas and units and when we recovered them they were covered in hair and dust. The last feedback said the towel rails weren’t working and they still weren’t working for us, this was disappointing as our towels wouldn’t dry properly. The main bedroom light still wasn’t working. If this property had regular deep cleans this would be a 5* property. We will be back.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following you stay at Apt 27. We have spoken with the owner who has confirmed that he is in the process of replacing the towel rails and fixing the bed room light. He will raise the cleanliness issues with his housekeeping team and looks forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Hi there, This is our second visit to number 27."

    Whilst the views are stunning, the apartment is not as clean as I would come to expect from these holidays. There’s a lot of dust in general round the apartment. In addition once I’d removed the bedding, the duvet covers and pillows were old and in some cases stained. The main bed mattress actually had dirt and dust and hair over it. It was actually revolting. I had to clean pubic hairs out of the bath when we arrived before I had a bath. We called the Maintenance manager as the washing machine had no fuse at the plug? Some other general maintenance that is needed in the flat for your attention: Light bulb is out in the entrance hall Light bulb is out in the main bedroom over the bed Light and shaving point not working in en-suite to main bedroom Towel rail not working in the bathroom to the second bedroom Fridge light isn’t working Stains on the towels

  • "This apartment is in a lovely position and well equipped."

    We had a few quibbles, why were the duvets winter weight instead of summer weight I had to remove my duvet and sleep with the cover and towel. Only 1 plug socket in the twin room and that was behind a bed! But most important both toilet seats were in a disgraceful state small pins sticking out of the lid and these had gouged out patches on the seat which is not at all hygienic.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have spoken to the owner and they are going to have a look into providing a summer duvet in the property. The owner has since changed the toilet seats. We are glad you found the property well equipped and in a good position. - The Helpful Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Only small criticism is the same every year, and in every holiday home : the duvets are always too heavy and warm for summer."

    Could someone not suggest to owners that they might supply lightweight bedding? Maybe with extra blankets if it's chilly? We have learned to expect it now! Otherwise we loved it and had a great time.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have spoken to the owner and they are going to have a look at providing summer duvets. We are glad to hear you had a lovely stay. Property Owner

  • "Similar to a previous review this apartment could be perfect."

    It is spacious, well equipped, with beautiful views. The maintenance is not adequate, there are nails protruding from both toilet seats where stoppers would have originally sat and this has resulted in removing the paint from the toilet seats. Not great if you have kids in the apartment. The bath panel also needs replacing. Paintwork is in need of updating. The cleanliness is not of a high standard, you can see where the tiles on both bathroom walls have not been cleaned in a long time. I have stayed in much less expensive accommodation and the maintenance and cleanliness have been spot on. Otherwise the facilities are good and the location perfection.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have spoken to the owner and they are in the process of actioning the points you have raised. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the facilities and location. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous location and building and the beach facilities on the doorstep are super."

    The accommodation has the potential to be really good but was let down by a few things. The apartment would benefit from a deep clean, the bed frames under the mattresses were very dirty, some of the towels and bed linen were well past their best with bleach stains / frayed in places, and there was no salt and pepper. A lick of paint on the skirting boards or a good clean also needed. Lots of chipped crockery. For the price of the accommodation in high season, this is the most we have ever spent for a week, all of these points together are a little disappointing.

    We would like to thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback and bringing these points to our attention. The owners have confirmed that the towels and bed linen have been replaced. The skirting boards have been painted and a deep clean of the apartment has been carried out. They were unable to find any chipped crockery; they have however replaced some of the missing/broken glasses. Property Owner

    We have stayed in quite a few of them and they are all of a very high standard. No 27 is amazing as very spacious, bedrooms with sea views and a double corner balcony with the best garden furniture- would highly recommend.

Burgh Island View Apartments

Just 20 yards from Bigbury-on-Sea's big and splendid sandy beach, looking to Burgh Island Causeway, are 29 stunning, high quality apartments, of which we let a number. Within the same building are excellent leisure facilities and a restaurant. The views over the sea to the south and west, and at low tide of a vast expanse of smooth washed yellow sand reaching to Burgh Island, are outstanding. The island's jolly pub, The Pilchard, is fun to visit (long-legged sea tractor at high tide). All the apartments, which are privately owned and individually furnished, have those sensational views, and are wonderfully light, with large, airy open-plan living/dining/kitchens and glazed doors to balconies or terraces. The smallish bedrooms, at the back (without views), have good quality en suite bath or shower-rooms. The apartment building is three-storey. Most apartments have easy access (short walk from parking and between 5 and 9 steps down to the lift). The ground floor (still high above the beach) apartments have big terraces, the first and top floor apartments have very good-sized balconies. The leisure facilities, which are free for guests to use and open from 10am every day (except Christmas Day), include a fine indoor swimming pool (40' x 20' x 4'6"), spa pool, well-equipped gym (treadmill, steps, cycles, Concept II Rower and other instruments of torture) and sauna (no children under 14 in gym or sauna). There are changing rooms, a shower and disabled loo. The Club restaurant/smart bar, is open 10am to 9pm during the High Season, reservations recommended (for all other times of the year, please contact the Leisure Centre for opening times), serves excellent food throughout the day, with a popular dinner menu which varies daily and themed evenings. You can also order meals to take to your apartment. The comfy lounging area has sofas and WiFi, and the sunny outdoor terrace faces the sea.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Modbury 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

Bigbury-on-Sea is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideal for family holidays. Dusted with sand and lapped by shallow waters, the beach offers safe fun for groups particularly if you’ve got children in tow. In addition, Bigbury-on-Sea beach is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of entertainment for budding marine biologists. There’s also a wide and varied selection of watersports available to visitors who prefer their holidays to feature a little adrenaline rush. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are popular here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. To give you some peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea beach during May to September and the beach also has a first-aid room. You can even take the dog onto the beach, although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer. Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’. Burgh Island boasts an award-winning hotel, elegant and rather genteel, it’s an ideal romantic retreat for couples. Explore the South Devon coast with its fabulous sandy beaches and its breathtakingly beautiful coastal path or simply take time to visit some of the charming estuary towns and villages dotted throughout the area, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The city of Plymouth and the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also both close at hand.
