This property is in a quiet well maintained and fairly exclusive area of Torquay. The views from both the garden and inside the property are magnificent with uninterrupted views of the sea. The property adjoins the owners house and is perfectly maintained to the highest quality. The set of 5 bifold doors allow access to the garden and are much appreciated come the warmer months when fully opened give approximately a 20 foot opening. I cannot find any fault as the facilities, including a wet room upstairs and and a bathroom downstairs, all top of the range. I will definitely be returning.

Seaspray apartment well worth 4* Gold Award

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 6 night stay at Seaspray. The apartment is well equipped, comfortable and has the most beautiful views from the huge windows. Our hosts Cavan and Sarah were there to greet us and show us around. Nothing was too much trouble and took time to talk about places to visit and make us feel very welcome. The apartment was well placed with coastal path right on its doorstep and views to die for. The facilities were fantastic clean and very well looked after. Fresh flowers from the garden a lovely touch. We will be booking again.

Superb Holiday Let. A Real Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Sea Spray for 6 nights in August.

We had a warm welcome from Sarah (one of the owners) who showed us where everything was.

There isn't really much to say about the accommodation itself other than it has everything you need for a break away from home (hence my title) and that everything has been done to a very high standard.

Downstairs is open plan and you have bi-fold doors to the front with a view over Thatcher Rock and across Tor Bay to Brixham (I think!). The kitchen has all the utensils you need, and there's a small dining table for times when you can't eat outside.

The lounge area has a sofa and chair, wide-screen TV, Sky, DVD player and a hi-fi. There is also a high-spec downstairs bathroom with wc and bath with shower.

Take the spiral staircase up to the first floor and you find a small landing with a stocked bookcase and fire escape door. You then enter the large bedroom with a very comfy bed, plenty of wardrobe space and, of course, that view. There is also an en-suite bathroom with wc and large walk-in shower. I LOVED the shower. Mine didn't compare when I got home.

The stair case is quite tight so renters should be aware of that.

Outside there is parking, another table and chair set and your own piece of garden with a substantial wooden sitting and dining set. This is where you can use Sea Spray's BBQ.

In terms of location, it's a 5 minute drive into Torquay's marina area where you can eat, drink, catch a boat to Brixham or Dartmouth (a visit to Agatha Christie's holiday home, Greenway, is a must) or a ferry or open top bus ride to the steam trains at nearby Paignton. You can also ride the big wheel that spends its summers in the English Riviera and its winters at London's Winter Wonderland.

In terms of shops we found a very good Co-op about a 5 minute drive away in the opposite direction to the marina. Sarah and Cavan will give you the finer detail.

To sum up, Sea Spray is very tastefully appointed and to a very high-spec. You'll find all that you need in a beautiful corner of our country.

Sarah and Cavan are excellent hosts and I have no hesitation in recommending Sea Spray to anyone, particularly if you love a good view!

A luxury apartment with stunning sea views

  • 5 of 5

'Seaspray' is a truly lovely place to spend a relaxing holiday by the sea. Cavan and Sarah are very welcoming, friendly and helpful and the attention to detail is impressive both in the property (for example: pretty and fresh decor, two bathrooms, steam free mirrors, electric blinds) and also with local information, helping us to plan activities. The view is amazing - to see the sea when you sit up in bed in the morning is wonderful. I would highly recommend this superior and beautiful holiday apartment.
