Reviews

    • “The apartment was in a fantastic location and was just as described. Just a a couple of things really to be aware of, the master bedroom got really warm and it was too noisy outside to leave the window open over night. The balcony although it is to be expected to get seagull poo on it was evident that this had not been cleaned for some time and we coukd not make best use of it. We also had an issue with the water where there was none. On speaking to the owner she stated she was aware that this issue was happening intermittently and it was being investigated. A note advising of this would have been of benefit on arrival. Perhaps with some bottled water in case it occurred. Although a few negatives it did not have a huge affect on our holiday and we did still have a fantastic time and the location of the apartment was just perfect.”

    • “Absolutely fantastic. The apartment was stunning with the most beautiful views ever! If you are looking for a relaxing seaside holiday then this is the one to choose. We are considering staying again on the future.”

    Mrs Higman, Gosport, August 2018

    • “Lovely apartment,great views and close to all amenities,parking fine just parked around the harbour.”

    Mr Seabright, Worcester, July 2018

    • “Loved staying here, view is fabulous and will definitely return. Just wish they could get rid of pesky seagulls which will come into the apartment if you leave the door open.”

    Ms Ley, Leighton Buzzard, June 2018

    • “Small point, if I had been offered the higher parking figure, so we could have parked in the Cove, we would have paid it.”

    Mr Palin, Lincoln, July 2017

    • “When cleaning the Penthouse there should be a final inspection around the apartment. For example; 1. Beside lamp in the front bedroom didn't work, I assumed the bulb didn't work. Even if the previous persons using the apartment before us should of reported this, this why there should be a final inspection carried out by a different person.The front bedroom windows were dirty with sea gulls poo over them.The toilet seat was not fitted correctly or the wrong type, I tried to tightening up but still no joy. 2.Chairs & table on the balcony needs much cleaning. & the decking was a disgrace, I don't think its seen a brush, I understand there is a big problem with sea gulls in the area still no excuse for cleanliness. I will suggest to you & to the owner if the apartment was mine, I would leave the table & chairs inside cleaned ready to be put out by the next client. At least it has time to stay clean away from the sea gulls. Even the outside gutter could have been cleaned very easily, but it had not. Even one of the gutters had a small shovel in it, don't know why? 3.The outside balcony lights didn't even work. 4.We had to remove a drinking glass from the cupboard as it was badly chipped and could of cut someones lip.We did leave it out with a note. Apart from some areas of cleaning being missed the apartment was okay. The mezzanine I think is a waste of space, and not very easy to get up and down the stairs such a shame. Parking was not easy to do every day, but we survived. We did enjoy our holiday, but a different accommodation with a balcony and a bit more space would be better.”

The Property

For those seeking a holiday beside the sea, you might be hard pushed to find somewhere closer than Oceanside Penthouse. Perched on the enviable top floor of the Oceanside apartments on Capstone Crescent in Ilfracombe, the position is just a moments walk from the coastal footpath and the pretty harbour of Ilfracombe, guarded by the famous bronze statue 'Verity' created by Damien Hirst.

A walkers paradise, Ilfracombe is a central location for some of the finest walking countryside in England and suitable for all levels and abilities.

Beach lovers who prefer long sandy stretches and rolling waves for surfing can enjoy the award winning Woolacombe and Croyde, both within a short car journey and perfect for family day trips to the beach. A trip to this area wouldn't be complete without visiting the Valley of the Rocks and the famous funicular railway at the picturesque Lynton and Lynmouth often referred to as Devon's little Switzerland, and where Exmoor meets the coast.
