    Well located for an easy walk to Paignton town centre or to Torquay if you fancy it. Property has absolutely everything you need, good kitchen, conservatory (we had an unexpected visitor in there one night, a small frog which caused a bit of chaos until it was caught and sent on its way, lol), nice garden and decking area. Surprisingly comfortable bed and pillows (I'm a mattress snob). A very enjoyable week.

    Thank you for your feedback ,it’s always nice to hear that people enjoy their stay and get a good nights rest .That was a surprise your visitor was very unexpected I can only imagine !

    Facilities are all provided and everything that was needed was supplied for you. The only negative comment was the cleanliness of the property, as this is what let it down, as the entire place could do with a deep clean, as it was generally quite dirty upon arrival and this would probably prevent me from staying again. It's a shame, as other than this, it's an excellent property, in a great location.

    We are really sorry that you did not find the property was as clean as you wished ,if only you had contacted us we could have done something to sort this out .

  • "The inside of the property was quite clean, just a few clusters of dust found."

    Like some other places we have rented the outside of the property is less clean with plastic doors, window sills and garden furniture in need of 'a wipe'. The bathroom/wet room was good but lacked enough clothes hooks to hang clothes as well as towels on. Just two round door handles on one wall available. Perhaps two or more could be placed on the wall above the bidet to make the room more user friendly. The bed and lounge seating was comfortable and having two televisions, one in the lounge and one in the bedroom, was appreciated. The kitchen was a joy to prepare food and drinks in. So more plus's than minuses to be attributed to the property.

    Derek , it was lovely to meet you ,I’m sorry you found some dust I wish you had contacted us ,I could have corrected this issue for you . We will take on board your idea for extra hooks ,but you are the first to tell us this but thank you we will look into this .We very pleased you enjoyed your stay . Best Regards Property Owner

    We did worry after booking it, that with four adults and a dog, it would feel too cramped and small. However we should not have been worried as it was much larger on the inside than we had imagined and we had plenty of room to spread out without getting on top of each other. The flat was very well equipped, with everything you needed and very well maintained and had a lovely modern and holiday feel to it. Whilst the actual area the flat is located in (Preston), is not that desirable, the location is in fact very central to all the sites in and around Torbay and easy access to the sea front and only a 20 minute walk in to the centre of Paignton. The added benefit of the garden was great and the ability to sit outside (when it stopped raining) was also lovely, plus it being secure for the dog!

    The property is a large semi detached house for which we had the whole of the bottom floor. Having searched on google maps I wasn't surprised about this but some people may be, however this in no way spoilt our holiday. We were greeted with scones, jam, clotted cream and sandwiches which was a lovely thought and very welcome after our long drive from Nottingham. Upon exploring the accommodation we were pleased to see it was very clean, comfortable and best of all it was lovely and warm as we were holidaying in a very cold week in February. The large double bed was very comfortable in the master bedroom which is at the front of the property on the street side, there is a television in this room and ample storage including two chest of drawers and a wardrobe, there is another bedroom which we didn't use with two single beds and a wardrobe. The lounge was comfortable with a leather settee with reclining foot rests and armchair, there is a large wall mounted flat screen television, lots of DVD's and some games in a set of drawers. We were very pleased with the free wifi throughout the property. The dining room is a lovely large conservatory which is heated and overlooks the garden, perfect for comfortable dining. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay enjoyable. A washer, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge freezer, double electric oven and four ringed gas hob plus all the pots, pans, plates, cups, saucers, mugs, cooking utensils you would ever need should you be cooking meals. There is a small toilet room with toilet and washbasin, and a larger bathroom and with walk in shower, toilet, bidet and washbasin. The property is ideal for disabled use, it is all on ground level with wide doors, a low level gas hob in the kitchen and a large walk in shower. If you were wheelchair bound you may need to ask the upstairs neighbours to move their car as there wouldn't be room to get a wheelchair past it, the drive and path to the front door may also prove difficult to negotiate as it was pebble stones. There is off street parking for one car outside but another car may be able to find on street parking outside or near the property. The approach road can get a little congested with a garage premises and their related vehicles parking both sides at the bottom of the road but further up the road where the property is it is very quiet as it's a cul-de-sac. There are people living upstairs accessed via a completely separate door, we weren't sure whether it was the owners of the property but if it was we didn't see them and they didn't come and say hello but there was a telephone number to ring if you needed them, there was very little noise from upstairs or next door so the rooms must be well sound proofed. The property is within easy walking distance of Preston beach and if you are fit you can walk to Paignton one way and Torquay the other way but that is a little further. The main road is on a bus route to both resorts. There is a wetherspoons pub a 15 minute walk away but the main pubs, restaurants and entertainment is either Paignton or Torquay. We had a lovely week and would recommend the property for a restful, comfortable, reasonable priced holiday.

  • "Very well equipped and managed flat."

    Clean and spacious. Owners very friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful stay. Liked that there was a keysafe for key collection as we arrived very late. Travelled with an infant - note there is no bath here but we took a baby bath and that was fine as the bathroom is spacious. Bedroom 2 (2x singles) is small so we had to move one of the single beds out to be able to put our cot in there. Master bedroom is huge + plenty of space for cot. We couldn't find any pubs or restaurants within walking distance but found some nice restaurants at the harbour.
