This place was perfect from the start. On our way into Paignton we called the owner who gave us helpful directions and greeted us like old friends on arrival . The location is perfect , right on the sea front with an allocated parking space ( we only went out once in the car as everything is within walking distance). The apartment itself is fantastic with lovely modern decor and everything you need, loads of wardrobe space in both bedrooms with the master having a big shower en suite with toilet and sink. The lounge has two two seater settees and a Juliet balcony with fantastic views. The kitchen has a large fridge freezer, washing machine and even a dishwasher !! All in all everything you need . There's loads of restaurants nearby to suit all budgets, and I recommend going on the steam train to Dartmouth ( "round robin" is excellent value that's the steam train, a boat trip and an open top bus )
All in all this is an excellent base camp for all your activities, I've just tried to book again for a birthday surprise for my mom in September but they're totally fully booked up which is not surprising. I highly recommend this place , I always check places out on trip advisor and I'm surprised there's not more reviews but the guest book in the apartment is full of returning visitors and great comments, I think they're keeping the place a secret !!
From organising the holiday with Blue Chip to getting there, everything went to plan.
The owner was very good and met us on arrival with the key, showed us round and checked everything was OK.
The appartment had everything we needed and the wi-fi was an unexpected bonus.
1 minute walk to the beach and easy access to other places nearby, both beaches and into Dartmoor.
Was a bit reluctant to book this apartment at first due to the lack of reviews but glad to say we made the right decision by booking in. The owner was very easy to contact to arrange an arrival time and was very helpful on checking in. The apartment was spotless and was very well appointed, the addition of wifi since our booking was a pleasant surprise. The bedrooms were well placed away from the living room so there was no concern of waking our little girl whilst watching tv after she had gone to bed which has been a problem in previous holiday accommodation. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need which made cooking our meals on the nights we ate in so much easier.
The apartment is perfectly located for Preston sands and it was lovely to be able to just pop down to the beach and nearby play area with our little girl to pass some time before bedtime. It was also in walking distance from the pier and geopark play area where we spent most of our week. Think we only ended up taking the car out a handful of times as it was so much easier to just walk.
The only negative I can say about the apartment is that we were there on one of the hottest weeks of the year and being on the top floor the heat in the bedrooms was stifling most nights so a fan or thin sheets would be a great addition to the place.
We were very sad to come home and are planning a return visit next year.
