Excellent Holiday - we'll be back.

The property is really well situated overlooking Torbay. It is equipped with good quality fittings and comes with everything you need (and more) for a self-contained, self-catering holiday … although we eat out each day. It is clean throughout and the double bed (didn't try the singles as there were only two of us) is very comfortable. The views from the lounge and from the balcony (that includes a bbq) are breath-taking and we enjoyed watching the dolphins following boats and playing in the bay ... amazing. Parking is reserved very close to the apartment. The only problem we found was, having a medium sized family car, accessing the key pad entry for the main gate which could not be done whilst remaining in the vehicle, due to the fact that the vehicle couldn't be positioned close enough to the key pad. Also the key pad was not illuminated well and when it was raining the keys (numbers and commands) were very difficult to see. We did master it after a couple of days and it didn't distract from a great holiday. Although it was our first time in Puffin 4 (it wont be our last) we know the area well and always enjoy our holidays there. Puffin 4 is by far the best apartment we have stayed in. Thanks for a great holiday.

We have stayed at The Cove before so knew the area. PUFFIN 4 is just as lovely, a perfectly relaxing holiday with glorious views across Torbay with the birds singing in the background. Again we saw the Brixham resident seal several times but this time no porpoises. Sitting on the decking breathing in the fresh air with a constantly changing view of boats, planes etc is idyllic. The only thing we missed was the use of the gas bbq, this had seen far better days and previous users obviously thought it wasn't there responsibility to clean it after use. Steve from Brixham Holidays popped out to inspect it and thoroughly agreed it was beyond help, hopefully the next residents will benefit from a shiny new bbq. Puffin 4 itself is perfectly contained for a base to explore the area, as well on miserable days to snuggle up and stare out of the doors. Our only issues as such which is not the owners fault is the bedrooms are far too narrow so in the twin bedroom you have to step crab like between the beds. The double bedroom not big enough for anything else but a double bed and you would have to be under 8 stone to shimmy between the bed and the wall to get round it so if you sleep on the right your only hope is to roll over the bed and prey you don't have to clamber over your sleeping partner in the night. As for Brixham Holidays they were brilliant.
Fantastic seaview apartment

We stayed for a 3 night break, the main reason for booking this accommodation was that it seemed top end, with an excellent view, and away from the crowds as it was a treat for my wife's Birthday, and it met our expectations and more! The apartment was really well equipped, and everything you might have needed for a self catering break was there, plus it was nice & clean, and felt cared for. The sofas were comfortable with amazing views of the bay and Torquay in the distance from whichever one you sat on. The bed was also comfy, and the duvet and cover were high quality, which aided a good night's sleep. There were sea views from the front bedroom, but those staying in the back wouldn't be as thrilled. The bathroom and shower were also very good, and the wifi was very reliable. We only sat on the balcony once as the temperature cooled down during our stay, but it was laid out well with good seating and plenty of space, plus the bbq looked decent quality, though we didn't get around to using it. I could imagine on a hot day it would be amazing to just sit for hours taking in the view, though one point to note if you are a sun worshipper, it sets behind the complex so you wouldn't get the heat of the sun in the late afternoon or evening from the balcony or even the beach. We knew Brixham town was fairly near but hadn't realised how close it was via the cliff top walk, and how easy it was to negociate it. Even at night with no street lights it was fairly easy to find our way back with torchlight and it felt very safe. In fact once we had parked the car on the Thursday outside the appartment we didn't need to use it again until we drove home on the Sunday. The beach below the complex was really good, with a small cafe if needed, and it was amazing seeing the local seals bob their heads out of the water close by as if to say hello to you. Some reviews have mentioned the noisy entertainment complex to the back of the apartment. Okay, there was a bit of live music on the Friday evening, and it could be heard from Puffin 4, but it died down around 10.30pm and we didn't hear a peep for the rest of our stay.We were actually amazed how quiet the whole of 'The Cove was during our stay, though realise that late September isn't exactly peak time. i should finally mention how accommodating the booking agent was in allowing us to stay until later on the check out day as nobody was staying for a few days after us - it really helped get the most of the weekend as we didn't have to rush that morning to pack and leave.
