This apartment is situated on the hill overlooking the marina and so has fantastic views over Torquay, Paignton and on to Brixham. The beds and seats are all comfortable and there is everything that you require in the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend the apartment. The only thing to be aware of is that it is quite steep to get up from Torquay to the apartment.Robert - 11th August 2018
Excellent location with views over the harbour and bay from the large and spacious balcony. The apartment itself has been very well maintained and had everything you could think of for a self catering stay. A bonus is the en suite bathroom which is great when you are a family of four which included teenagers. We had our bathroom and they had theirs.Mr Carl Culley (Home Away) - 7th August 2018
As regulars to Torquay this apartment by far is the most pleasing to date. Location, amazing views to die for and everything you need for a relaxing or fun filled holiday. You need nothing more than to take in those views or a trip on the ferry. Local beaches are plenty and a favourite of ours is Babbacombe. The apartment is spotless with everything you need to make your stay a home from home.The Culley Family, Manchester - 4th August 2018

Definitely the best spot for watching AirShow - we felt very snug set on the balcony with the Red Arrows flying directly overhead! We will definitely be back!Nick and Emma - 4th June 2017
We enjoyed a wonderful week at the apartment in October with our young family, the views were amazing, the balconya wonderful way to enjoy the view and the sun (a sun trap), relaxing, close to everything although a lot of steps all the young family coped okay with these. Never ran out of thingsto do locally, in fact didn't fit everything in. National trust places close, big wheel a must. Rockfish food a joy! Enjoyedour stay maybe our only bad comments would be to finish offbathrooms a little more professionally and add a dishwasher and a measuring jug/gravy boat to the kitchen. Everything else was perfect, in fact cant wait to come back!Thompson family, Wombourne - 1st October 2016
This is a beautiful property with an amazing view of Torquays harbour and seafront.
