  • "Property is amazing, great location and finished to a very high standard."

  • "Superb apartment with unbelievably stunning views, spotlessly clean, comfortable and great hot tub."

    Loved the robes and disposable flip-flops, a wonderful luxury touch! Very quiet in a beautiful location. Adored every second of our time here gazing across the bay! The only tiny thing I would mention is that we felt that for the standard of everything else the kitchen could be better equipped.

  • "I would like to preface this by saying that I rarely leave reviews but felt I really should on this occasion."

    The very faded and rather tired artificial flowers outside the property did not create a great first impression. The apartment was spotlessly clean and generally well appointed although we ended up having to buy additional loo roll and kitchen towel - there were 2 of us and we only use a normal amount of these items. The location was a plus - the view from the apartment was stunning - but also meant that we couldn't really go anywhere without the car. We did walk down into town a few times but the walk back up hlll is not for the faint hearted and we could not always time it with buses! . Some instructions for the whirlpool bath would have been useful - not everyone is familiar with them and we had to call Sykes when the jets repeatedly switched on when there was no water in it. I did ask for the owners to give me a call but they were apparently too busy. We just decided not to use it again. The hot tub was very well maintained but totally surrounded by fence panels - I realise this was probably for privacy reasons but the lack of any view of anything made using it rather boring. I thought it a bit mean spirited to ask us to bring our own tea towels given that we had paid over £1200 for the booking. Sadly we decided to come home 2 days early as we were just not enjoying ourselves.

    Fantastic location for exploring the local area, and a really clean, well appointed apartment with everything you need and fantastic views.

  • "We've come to expect excellence with Sykes (we've never had anything but value for money: reassuringly expensive when you see what yopu're getting) but this one really did have the wow factor."

    I was bringing the cases into the downstairs hall so my wife was first up the stairs and I heard her first word: WOW! Stylish accommodation, fantastic views of Torbay and two outside areas: a decking and a balcony. Sunsets and sunrises and a beautifully relaxing holiday (large not tub) also ideally situated for getting out and about. Thoroughly recommended! Pete and karon Bennett (and son Tom)

  • "The flat itself, was very well presented and clean."

    Two lovely balconies with sea views, TV in the lounge and both bedrooms, a jacuzzi bath and hot tub. It has the feel of a luxury 5 star however........ There were a few niggles that stop me giving this rental the 5th star. The parking facilities. Although we were aware there was only parking for one car, and it was allocated, it is at the bottom of a VERY steep driveway. there are 2 other dwellings underneath this flat, another holiday rental, also with one car parking space, and another dwelling that had 2 cars. Sometimes these two cars obstructed / made it very difficult to exit the steep driveway. who wants to reverse up a very long 45 degree drive onto a residential road. I feel the available outside space, that had 2 garages, could have been utilised better for residents parking. These next points may seem picky, but I think, worth noting. The dining table has strange 'legs.' If you're sat at either end, it's fine, but if you are sat at the side, you can't get your feet underneath and I bashed my knees finding this out. The shower, although fantastic, had no shelve inside for soap/shampoo etc, which meant putting them on the floor. Also there was no hook directly outside the shower for a towel/dressing gown which again, means putting them on the floor - and it got very wet when opening the shower door. (There are hooks on the back of the bathroom door, but it's on the other side of the shower cubicle.) Whilst there are amazingly deep drawers under the bathroom sink, again a shelve for soap/tooth brush etc, would have been appreciated. There are no curtains in the bedrooms, only slatted blinds. I was in the double room at the beginning of July, which meant the sun poured in at dawn and woke me very early. It seems there was a curtain pole at sometime, as three holes have been filled in directly above the window. A picky point but, the reading lights above the beds are placed so high up, I had to get out of bed to turn them off, a bit impractical. It might be an idea to lower them, or have bedside lamps.... Some of the kitchen utensils need upgrading, the tin opener is naff and didn't work well! My personal preference, I didn't like the faded plastic foliage in tubs outside the flat. It's almost a luxury flat and I felt these detracted from the image. Other than that, it's a very well presented property aiming to cater for all your needs. Just these few things, in my opinion, would take it to the next level.

    Lovely apartment just as advertised nice and clean just few minor things but overall very nice very comfortable furniture but double bed not quite to our liking but very minor detail did not retract from holiday the facilities were good bit awkward having washing machine downstairs but again very minor detail could benefit from more crockery and cooking utensils but just enough to manage did not like quilt covers on double bed very scratchy and quite pilled but overall really enjoyed our stay would definitely return again highly recommended
