About John & Beth Kiely

We live in south east England and are a family of 5 who enjoy the sea, the sunshine, surfing and golf. We have family living locally in north Devon.

John & Beth Kiely purchased this apartment in 2009

Why John & Beth Kiely chose North Devon

We first came on a family holiday in the 1970's staying in a nearby camp site. We loved the beaches at Saunton and Croyde and came back many times and then family moved to the area in 1980 so we have visited every year since. Oceanpoint is a once in a life time dream location, bang on the beach and yet close to relatives.

What makes this apartment unique

We just love sitting and watching the beach, the surfers and the waves or just relaxing with a drink in the sunshine (the balcony faces due south and is protected so is a great suntrap, especially welcome in the winter/spring and autumn). The area has some fantastic scenery, villages and walks, all easily accessible from Seascape.

High quality accommodation, fantastic position with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

We have had many holidays in this area; camping, caravan parks, beach bungalows etc. We decided to treat ourselves to a stay at Seascape; which is comparable in price to a larger caravan or lodge in Croyde so turns out to be fantastic value for money. The appartment is of very good quality with virtually everything you'd need to self cater and enjoy doing so. The gated complex is very well maintained with beautiful garden areas and well marked parking bays. We had bikes and surf equipment and were able to store these in racks and a little wooden locker for the week (tip: bring a pad lock to secure your surfing locker) which was ideal. Our kids are in their early teens and want to be independent; the place was great for them to be able to collect their 'toys' and head down to the beach to surf safely (we were able to keep an eye on them from the appartment using binoculars!). Likewise I enjoyed getting up before them and walking on the almost empty beach just seconds away. Finally, there are the views. Where ever you are in this appartment they are always with you, ever changing and arresting. We made sure we maximised the time we had to sit on the lovely balcony and watch and watch..........this is the real treat.

We have had a wonderful holiday, we miss Seascape already and will not hesitate to treat ourselves again, hopefully sooner rather than later. Thank you.

Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Seascape for our family holiday this year because of its proximity to the beach and the high quality of the accommodation. We were not disappointed! The apartment was extremely clean with top-quality furniture and fittings. Someone has put some real thought and care into this! There was an excellent welcome pack - not just the bog-standard teabags and wine, but locally-made biscuits and other treats. As the apartment is so close to the beach, it meant that we could all be truly independent - kids did not have to wait for parents to ferry them around in the car, for example, they could just visit the beach under their own steam whenever they felt like it, for bodyboarding, kayaking and surfing. We had planned to eat out most evenings, but after seeing the view from the balcony, ended up dining in, with that superb view. Location-wise, the apartment is well-situated for rambling, and visiting nearby beaches and villages by car. We so enjoyed staying at Seascape, and, as we research our 2015 summer holiday, find that other accommodation just does not come up to scratch!
