  • "The property was very good, although the fire alarm went off on the second day for several hours and then we had other days with the alarm going off and in between times we had intermittent beeps even all through the night, which does not make it easy to sleep."

    Nobody seemed to be able to deal with it properly, even the contact we were given said she was just a cleaner, therefore our holiday was marred to an extent.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide a review for us. We are very pleased you liked the apartment. We are so sorry that the alarm for the whole building block developed a fault during your stay. Georgina, our representative was available to help by contacting the registered electrician who the management company employ for all electrical and safety (fire alarm) maintenance. He was initially unavailable but I understand he did effect a repair to stop the alarm but unfortunately it took him several days to procure the necessary replacement part for a permanent fix to the main buildings circuitry. We are really pleased that you found the apartment comfortable and trust you enjoyed your stay. Mark & Joanne Property Owner

  • "A true gem!"

    ! Lovely appartment with everything you could possibly need and a stunning view over the bay! Beautiful and large deck outside with nice chairs and sunbeds! Great private parking with remote-controlled gate. Torquay was very nice with lots of restaurants and beautiful coastpaths for nice walks! Totnes and Dartmouth are towns nearby that are also worthwhile visiting. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this lovely appartment!!

    Thank you for your lovely positive feedback. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the week and found the apartment provided everything that you needed to make your stay a pleasurable one. Warm regards Mark & Jo Property Owner

  • "The apartment is stunning and exactly as it appears in the listing."

    We particularly loved the private, huge, well furnished terrace with fabulous sea views. The owners had thought of everything, from a fully equipped kitchen to a hair dryer, clothes airer, iron and ironing board etc. The parking space was roomy, and we had no problem parking our car in it with a boot box attached on the back. The communication before, during and after our stay was excellent and we very much appreciated the delicious cream tea that had been left for us in the fridge to enjoy when we arrived. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we would go back in a heartbeat.

  • "The property was one of the best we have ever stayed in."

    Beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The information supplied from the owners was detailed and very helpful. The view from the large patio over the Bay was stunning. The patio furniture was in excellent condition and very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this apartment to others. Secure parking was the icing on the cake.

  • "This is a wonderful property."

    The apartment is spotlessly clean and feels like walking into a brand new build. It has all of the facilities you could possibly want and is complemented by wonderful views of the bay and a large fully fitted patio area. If visiting in the colder months the apartment is centrally heated and is so efficient we actually turned it off. The apartment also comes with secure parking for one car. Support of the owners is the best we have ever experienced with advance contact including full instructions on the use of all facilities. The walk down to Torquay town and local eateries is only a few minutes.

  • "We cannot fault the apartment, it was so clean, luxurious and stylish."

    It has everything that you could possibly want in a home away from home. The owners have clearly thought of everything that they think people would want and need to make a perfect holiday. We can fault the apartment at all we had a lovely stay. The only slight downside is that the parking space is very tight and quite difficult to get in and out of when the car park is full. If you have a small car it’s definitely easier. None the more for that we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would definitely recommend and go back for another stay.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay. With regards to the tight parking space, we have already sought & received permission to extend the parking space by a metre, and hope to have this work completed over the winter. So hopefully next time you visit, you will find the parking less cramped. Thanks Just as an update, this work was completed in January 2022, and our parking space is now amply large enough for even the biggest of SUV’s. Kind regards Property Owner

The property

This beautiful high quality apartment is set on the hill in Torquay with fabulous south facing views across the bay, situated just half a mile from the beach, and providing a superb gateway to Devon.

Waves boasts fabulous sea views from the large terrace, making this a truly spectacular retreat for couples looking to escape everyday life.

The open-plan living space is bright and airy and offers the ideal spot to unwind during the evening, with an HD TV and Bluetooth speaker providing entertainment, or simply sit back and reflect on the holiday so far.

Move to the amply-equipped kitchen, hosting all you could need during your staycation, including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, coffee machine, washing machine and even a dishwasher, so washing up will be no trouble.

Serve up a delicious feast which can be enjoyed alfresco style on the decked terrace, complete with table and chairs and gas barbecue for those sunny afternoons, all while the stunning backdrop of Torquay helps the chilled vibe keep going.

As you begin to yawn, retire to the king-size bedroom and wrap yourself under the plush duvet and drift off watching the lights in the bay twinkle through the two sets of French doors.

There is also an en-suite shower room and a separate bathroom, giving you plenty of space to prepare for the day.

Torquay is a superb holiday town; explore the lively streets and its picturesque harbourside where you can watch the beautiful yachts whilst tucking into a portion of fish and chips, enjoy a drink at one of the many waterside bars or venture to the beach where you can enjoy the calm, warm waters of the bay, hire kayaks or paddle boards, or simply relax with a spot of sunbathing on the sand.

Explore the broader Torbay encompassing Paignton and Brixham, by foot, bus, historic steam train or local shuttle ferry that link the 3 seaside towns via their Marinas.

Visit the Torquay Museum and learn about local culture and history, or pop on your walking boots and join the South West Coast Path where beautiful scenery and vistas come in abundance with 630 miles of interlinked walks offering something for all levels of ability.

Further outdoor opportunity can be seized in the Dartmoor National Park, bursting with scenic trails and cycle routes, all among incredible scenery, and home to the famous Dartmoor ponies too!

Once you’ve built up an appetite, there’s plenty of superb eateries to try, ranging from traditional pubs to award-winning bistro’s and restaurants, along with many supermarkets if you would rather cook yourself.

For a memorable break with your better half, consider Waves, The Bay!
