Excellent stay. Thanks for the welcome bottle of wine. Very nice apartment indeed and equipped to the hilt. We all enjoyed the whole trip immensely. May 2012

This is a most luxurious and beautifully situated apartment. We've had a wonderful time, walking stretches of the South West coastal paths. We hope to come again when the sun is shining and sea blue. Thank you so much and for the wine. Feb 13

We have had an excellent week and have thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

The views from this elegant sitting room are exceptional and we have found the apartment very well equipped. Thank you for the flowers and wine. We hope to be back. March 2013

A beautiful holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful apartment in the perfect location. spotlessly clean with everything we needed for a family holiday. A great spacious apartment to relax & chill out on a rainny day, looking at the beautiful sea views. We arrived to fresh flowers & a bottle of wine. There is a beach cafe with brilliant views for snacks & light meals within a short walk. Also steps down to a sandy, cobbled beach & toilet facilities on the beach. The apartment is attached to a 4 star hotel where we had some lovely meals. You are welcome to go with the children in the evening & have a drink or afternoon coffee there. We all played tennis, this is available to hire at the hotel. The children enjoyed playing on the slides & swings. There is a pool you can use in the hotel which we did use each day but it does cost £34.00 per DAY to use this for a family of 4, which we didn't mind. The gym is extra £5.00 a day it isn't included in the price of the swim. In the summer this would be a perfect holiday apartment on the beach with an outdoor pool, looking over the sea - amazing. We stayed at Easter, we had 2 stunning days with weather and the rest were windy/raining but the apartment is so stunning we were happy to sit around relaxing playing board games. Our children loved staying here & have said they would loved to go back again one day.

WOW

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this apartment do not do it justice. Spotlessly clean, very roomy, peaceful. Lounge is enormous with beautiful high ceilings and all furnished in keeping with the building itself. Everything we needed and more in the apartment. Fantastic views of the sea from all the lounge windows and the master bedroom window. Lovely comfortable beds. perfect piece of heaven for a base if you want to see the sights or just to get away from it all. The sea is so close it takes no time at all to do the delightful walk to the quiet promenade. Feeling more energetic, take a stroll over the cliff tops to Torquay and take in the amazing views along the way. We stayed for a week but could very easily have stayed for a lot longer, the apartment is so comfortable. We usually start our holiday by cleaning cutlery, work surfaces and toilets, absolutely no need in this apartment we arrived unpacked and started to enjoy our stay immediately. It felt like our own piece of heaven. Not the cheapest apartment available but definitely worth every penny. We would definitely stay here again would not even look at another apartment in Torquay this was so perfect for us. Water sports available were great for our two boys age 16 and 10. We were welcomed by Sarah who showed us around and asked that we phone her any time if we had any problems which we did not.
