We stayed after Christmas this year, the view from the lounge was lovely and the studio was clean but we did feel very UN welcome ..the bedding was tired smelt stale and scruffed up. The instructions were basic and those for using equipment very hard to find. No washing machine in the studio you had to ask to use owner, but he was not the welcoming type so we felt unable too, some basic cleaning things cloths, the bathroom is miniscule and dangerous I cannot believe anyone would make one so small it could be dangerous if someone fell in there. Parking and driving in not easy. This is a tiny little place very basic there were no welcome touches. Sad because position wise this could have been a good place. Building work early in the morning with grumpy builder who blocked our car in and then was most unhelpful.
These comments have been taken on board but feel that it is up to the individual to mention these things during their stay so things can be rectified immediately. Together with a welcome booklet all guests are provided with an overview in which I explain all aspects of the apartment and the surroundings. From other reviews you will see that most guests are very happy with their stay, so please wherever you decide to stay if something is not right always inform the owner immediately.

"Don't believe everything in the advert. Read on for an honest review."
We stayed for 5 nights in early September. The property is very modern and mostly as the advert describes. The views out the back were amazing and there was a nice patio and garden. We took the near… More
These negative comments are totally unfounded and in part malicious. To imply that some or all the reviews are bogus let me give assurance to anyone who is considering a stay that each one can be verified and were made by legitimate guests.
1. Adjoining house to the apartment . . this is clearly mentioned on the label heading 'Property details'.
2. Cycle helmets . . . there is no mention that these items are available on the website and no mention of a request on any of the threads of emails. Note that I was able to supply one but not two and the pedal was fixed the same evening as it happened.
3. Washing machine . . this facility is available and could have been used at any time apart from the 3 days I was away. Once again there was no mention of a request on any of the threads of emails. For short stays such as this the majority of guests never ask for this service.

A lovely apartment with stunning views out over the Exe Estuary, and Exmouth beyond. A grand base for exploring the South Devon Riviera. Parking right at the door, but a bit of steep walk from the level to the property if you happen to be on foot. A huge panoramic double glazed patio door dominates the apartment with access to the private patio area where you can sit for hours taking in the fantastic vista. A highly recommended apartment for two people.

"Superb, fantastic views, very clean and comfortable accommodation."
We had a wonderful holiday, location was great for walking to train station, bus stops so we didnt have to use the car while we away. We walked easily to the 2 great pubs/restaurants on the harbour front. We enjoyed our stay even more by the warm welcome on arrival, the accommodation was exceptional the views from the window were stunning.. Thank you we are definitely recommending to family and friends and will be returning again.

"About as good as it gets!"
My son and I stayed at this lovely apartment mid September 2011. The views from the living, dining room and patio are stunning of which the pictures do not do justice. The apartment was very functional, clean,tidy and particularly enjoyed the choice of eating outside or in. Although not an obvious choice the location turned out to be an excellent base to explore this very scenic part of the world.
