  • "We were very pleased with the apartment, it was lovely and quiet just the wave sound and bird song."

    The highlight was the spectacular views over the cliffs and sea. The furniture and bed were very comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need. We would highly recommend staying here. You have everything right on your doorstep i.e. cafes restaurants, grocery shops, pubs, everything you could want, plus the coastal walks and boat trips. We had a great holiday. Many thanks Karen and Mark

  • "Stunning view in a great location."

    Well equipped and good layout . We used it as a base while three of our party did the south west coast path. The apartment is very close to the harbour and other amenities If we couldn’t park on the road by the apartment which you could after 6pm - 8am we used the harbour park after our day walking pay till 6 then no charge till 8am. Would recommend.

    Had to park in nearby car park, literally just round the corner, had to get weekly pass from tourist information, so that worked out cheaper than paying daily Good pubs and eateries within easy walking distance. Only draw back was the English weather raind a lot of time we where there, but we cant blame you for that

  • "The property was amazing with a fabulous view."

    There were some little extra welcome gifts which were much appreciated and the apartment was very well catered for and comfortable. Unfortunately my one negative is the cleanliness of the kitchen and dining area. There was food and drink left in the fridge and freezer along with a half eaten ice cream and food stuck to the shelving in the fridge so obviously not been cleaned out! There was also coffee/ tea spill stains on the flooring in the dining area as well as dust and dirt under the sofa!!! It is such a shame that this was the case as the apartment was spectacular.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are very sorry to hear that there were some cleanliness issues. We have spoken with the owner regarding the points raised and they will discuss this with their housekeepers to ensure a thorough clean is actioned on each changeover and these points are not overlooked in the future. Despite this we are pleased you were able to enjoy Ocean Side and it's fantastic views Property Owner

  • "We had a pleasant stay but would like to inform you that these were the issues that we reported and were told that someone would come around to sort."

    I’m afraid no one came around neither did we get a call back: 1. Kitchen tap lever coming off 2. Main bedroom: shower holder coming off the wall. 3. Unable to use the balcony table & chairs due to the rubbish falling from the top. Also not satisfied with the cleanliness of the balcony. 4. It was not great to have the recycling boxes outside the front door of the apartment.

  • "Lovely apartment with a great sea view."

    A great base to explore surrounding area. Plenty of space for 2 couples. Excellent facilities in the apartment- everything you could need. Parking difficult outside the building but this was stated in the description and used a local pay and display. Only problem we had was trying to use the t.v and dishwasher without any instructions. I think it would make it easier if an instruction folder was in the apartment for visitors.

  • "Large balcony, fantastic view."

    Spotlessly clean. Very well-equipped kitchen. Only niggle is that the beds aren't very comfortable. The flat is packed with advanced electronica; an Idiot's Guide to using the WiFi, TV, heating, etc would be useful. You can surf the internet on the TV! The 1-hour restriction on parking only applies from 10am till 6pm. A 7-day permit for the car park costs £40; it can be full at weekends.

    Our only slightly negative comment is that you didn't warn us how close the property is to the sea and how utterly mesmeric watching the sea is. We had to drag ourselves from the balcony and the windows to go and investigate the delights of Victorian Ilfracombe. Thank you we had a very enjoyable time. Denis Golding

    Apartment had every home comfort. Because of Covid restrictions you really need to pre-book restaurants to stand any chance of getting a reservation! Small maintenance issue with the fridge door. It didn't line up properly so needs a good push to ensure the door was closed.

  • "Load noisy flat, drunk people hovering outside."

    Poor quality items inside. A tv from the 80s that needed 3 remotes to turn on, buzzing all the time it was on. Fridge dirty and on last legs making a horrible noise all night. A balcony with bird poo on that gets 0 sun all day. Bread bin full of someone else's food, dirty utensils.

    The Owners are sorry for the standard of cleaning and have alerted our management company. They are reviewing equipment and replacing items as required. They have no control over the noise level of people outside and have had no complaints over the last two years about this. The balcony is cleaned regularly but there will always be seagulls flying about and leaving droppings,due to the location right on the sea with the most wonderful panoramic view across the water over to Wales Property Owner

    Parking is the only slight issue but we soon discovered how convenient parking a few minutes walk away, with no problem in 3 years, solves this issue. Parking tickets available at the tourist information centre and this year cost £41.00 for a 2 week stay.

  • "The apartment was absolutely spotless (thankyou Hilary & co?"

    ). The location was second to none and perfect for a very short stroll into town. We were especially impressed with the welcome pack as many times we have arrived so somewhere with not so much as a drop of water. Our only criticism would be the TV was quite old and could not be used with any of the modern day devices. The standard of linen/towels/bedding etc was excellent and does make a difference to our stay. We will definitely stay there again.

  • "The apartment was just perfect."

    The furnishing, the décor, the location were all better than advertised. Usually when you stay in somebody else's home it doesn't quite feel right, you know that it's not your home because things aren't as you'd have them, sometimes it's only the smallest of items but it is enough to be noticed. Oceanside was just perfect, everything was just felt right from the moment we walked in the door. The location was amazing with the view out over the Bristol Channel stunning and it's not many locations where you have breakfast with the rising sun shining on you and then supper with the setting sun twinkling on the ice in your G&T. The partment is like Mary Poppins - Perfect in Every Way.
