  • "The property is beautiful with stunning views, we had a fantastic weekend."

    The only minor disappointments being only having a cafetiere for coffee, for a property of this standard I would have expected to have a Nespresso or similar. Also the 9am check out was not the most relaxing end to our stay, and the earliest check out I have experienced in any self catering property.

  • "An absolutely stunning property, with amazing views, we all loved our stay and will return again."

    A short walk into Salcombe which is no problem as the views along the way make it worth every step. I cannot praise the property enough, extremely clean and the owners have thought of every little detail to make it special.

  • "I took my dad away to Courtenay Villa for his 50th birthday and wow, what a place!"

    Sadly, we were broken into by someone who claimed to be the owner during our stay. We felt threatened by the intruder and Sykes didn't take responsibility and action against that horrible, arrogant person. All in all, sadly it was a fearful experience and ruined my dad's 50th birthday celebration.

    Thank you for your feedback which is really disappointing but we want to assure you that there really was no intruder or break in and give a full explanation. Firstly we do value all our guests and privacy is of the up most importance. An important package had been delivered to our house Courtenay Villa and we asked our caretaker Chris to ask if he could pop in and see if the current guests minded if he collected it and put it in the garage. He knocked and politely asked if he could come and get the package and also checked you were all ok and were enjoying our family holiday home. Chris fed back to me that you were all lovely people and seemed very happy and enjoying the house. One of the owners then came to collect the parcel from the garage which is accessed separately to the house – he had left something in one of the landlords cupboards that he needed so rang the bell but there was no answer. He decided to quickly pop In through the garage to collect the item which was in a cupboard just next to the garage. In hindsight this was the wrong thing to do and he should have come back later and asked permission to come in so we do apologise for this. You were in fact in and he had a nice chat with you and you all seemed to be having a lovely time which he was really pleased by. All I can do is apologise but I want to make any future guests reading this understand that going forwards we have made sure that there won’t be any need for us to come into the main property unless there is a maintenance issue or emergency. Thank you for your understanding. James – Joint Owner Courtenay Villa. Property Owner
