    “We have spent five weeks in this apartment since October 2018 to May 2019 and have had five or six previous visits, small jobs that required attention have not been repaired and I will detail them so that your inspectors can check when they next visit.”

    ( a feedback from them to me would be very welcome). ...

    ( a feedback from them to me would be very welcome). Bedroom 1.Curtains very thin and badly frayed in places,bed linen of extremely poor quality,we were left two bath towels badly frayed at the edges having requested bath sheets.Wardrobe clutter with owners belongings and doors unable to close properly very little hanging space.Bedside lights have to be turned on and off at the main switch as the cord switch was broken. Main bathroom shower fitting came off each time of using and the smell of drains in there for the whole week was obnoxious......which also filtered through to the rest of the rooms. KItchen area very dated and utensils were of poor quality,nothing was left for cleaning toilets basins shower etc.,the kitchen sink cupboard was full of junk I.e old rubber gloves paper bags etc. SItting and dining alright but well dated. Bacony furniture small wooden tables and chairs nothing to lounge on,to enjoy the most marvelous view possible. Cleaning cupboards were full of junk I.e. Three squeegy mops that didn't work no sweeping brush( that was left broken on the balcony) poor clothes airier and ironing board. 2nd bedroom.. A total disgrace wardrobe full of blankets high chair a bag of something? that prevented the door being able to be used,the beds were old and we certainly could not have invited guests to join us for the week.....curtains and linen again very mediocre. 2nd bathroom passable but very antiquated but there again the smell of drains You may wonder why we return? We love the position that it holds and also the fact that it takes dogs albeit their rate is a premium when they don't use any facilities.You will see from your records that we have booked again for next May but certainly things need to improve before that date.

    - Mrs Kinder, May 2019

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are pleased that our maintenance team were able to clear the drain. We will of course check that any clutter is removed from the property and that any worn linen or towels are replaced. We are delighted that so many of our previous guests have left very kind comments after their happy holidays in our apartment, and that they have chosen to return many times. Owner relations

The property

Just 20 yards from Bigbury-on-Sea's big and splendid sandy beach, looking to Burgh Island Causeway, are 29 stunning, high quality apartments, of which we let 13.

Within the same building are excellent leisure facilities and a restaurant.

The views over the sea to the south and west, and at low tide of a vast expanse of smooth washed yellow sand reaching to Burgh Island, are outstanding.

The island's jolly pub, The Pilchard, is fun to visit (long-legged sea tractor at high tide). All the apartments, which are privately owned and individually furnished, have those sensational views, and are wonderfully light, with large, airy open-plan living/dining/kitchens and glazed doors to balconies or terraces.

The smallish bedrooms, at the back (without views), have good quality en suite bath or shower-rooms.

The building is three-storey.

Most apartments have easy access (short walk from parking and between 5 and 9 steps down to the lift).

The ground floor (still high above the beach) apartments have big terraces, the first and top floor apartments have very good-sized balconies.

Arrival after 4pm.

The leisure facilities, which are free for guests to use and open from 10am every day (except Christmas Day), include a fine indoor swimming pool (40' x 20' x 4'6"), spa pool, well-equipped gym (treadmill, steps, cycles, Concept II Rower and other instruments of torture) and sauna (no children under 14 in gym or sauna).

There are changing rooms, a shower and disabled loo.

The Club restaurant/smart bar, is open 10am to 9pm during the High Season, reservations recommended (for all other times of the year, please contact the Leisure Centre for opening times), serves excellent food throughout the day, with a popular dinner menu which varies daily and themed evenings.

You can also order meals to take to your apartment.

The comfy lounging area has sofas and WiFi, and the sunny outdoor terrace faces the sea.

No 24.

On the top floor, with stunning sea/beach views looking right across at the island, a comfortable, child-friendly apartment.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with TV/DVD, Apple TV and sliding doors to balcony (table/chairs, great for sundowners).

Two bedrooms - double (with TV and en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), and twin with en suite shower-room (suite, bidet).

Bigbury-on-Sea: village (seasonal café) with south Devon's biggest sandy beaches (The Venus Café, Takeaway and Surf School, seasonal beach shop), stretching to Burgh Island (The Pilchard pub; famous art deco hotel - you can walk to it at low tide, go by long-legged tractor at high; setting of Agatha Christie novels).

Good windsurfing; fine cliffs for walking and sea-bird watching.

About the location

BIGBURY-ON-SEA

Modbury 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

Bigbury-on-Sea is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideal for family holidays. Dusted with sand and lapped by shallow waters, the beach offers safe fun for groups particularly if you’ve got children in tow. In addition, Bigbury-on-Sea beach is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of entertainment for budding marine biologists. There’s also a wide and varied selection of watersports available to visitors who prefer their holidays to feature a little adrenaline rush. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are popular here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. To give you some peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea beach during May to September and the beach also has a first-aid room. You can even take the dog onto the beach, although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer. Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’. Burgh Island boasts an award-winning hotel, elegant and rather genteel, it’s an ideal romantic retreat for couples. Explore the South Devon coast with its fabulous sandy beaches and its breathtakingly beautiful coastal path or simply take time to visit some of the charming estuary towns and villages dotted throughout the area, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The city of Plymouth and the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also both close at hand.

Note: Leisure facilities open from 10am every day (except christmas day). Note: The gym or sauna does not accept children under 14 years of age.
