“High quality rental, superb location”
Reviewed 18 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

An immaculate, spacious apartment, superbly located in the heart of Dartmouth. Family of four, an eight year old and a fourteen year old, something for everyone, so comfortable for the children with wifi and modern tv, they were happy to stay indoors on a rainy day. Proper kitchen with all facilities for me. As stated, 60 seconds to the river and also the excellent Cherub Inn and Dartmouth Arms (child friendly). Book with confidence, excellent communication with both the agent and owner, deposit refunded on the day we returned home.

“Beautiful property, lovely location thoroughly enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed 28 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Beautiful property. Real home from home. Spotlessley clean with lovely calm and clean decor. So many thoughtful touches such as the welcome box, soaps in bathrooms, plenty of towels, washing facilities, liquids, sponges etc made it extra special . Wouldnt hesitate to come back the weather helped aswell! The location is amazing juts seconds walk to an amazing view of the river which I got up and looked at each morning.
Dartmouth is an easy place to get around not many places to eat with young children, we had to eat before 6pm due to young baby and nowhere served dinner but we managed! We were given detailed information on the property and our deposit was returned the very next day, very impressed with the service.

“You've thought of everything!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

'The Porthole' is a beautiful apartment in an ideal location, equipped with everything we could wish for and more - a real home from home. We loved every minute of our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Both the owners and booking agent were very friendly and helpful and our deposit arrived back before we did!

The flat itself is deceptively spacious, light and airy, furnished and equipped to a high standard. We loved the nautical-themed decor. Making the most of the unexpedtedly good weather all week meant that we didn't have time to watch the broad selection of DVDs provided or play many of the games. Maybe next time!

Although there is no view of the river, there are pleasing views in both directions from the window seat in the large bay window. Being only seconds from the picturesque and historic Bayard's Cove meant that we were able to take advantage of the early morning sunshine and have the place to ourselves, or nip down in the evening for a relaxing drink at the 'Dartmouth Arms' with the lights of neighbouring Kingswear reflecting on the water. We were also handy to shops and numerous eating places and can recommend the local fish and chips.

Parking is difficult in high season but we managed to find a space outside the property for loading and unloading, and the parking permit was a boon, valid not only in Dartmouth but also in some surrounding towns and villages. Free wi-fi was also a useful bonus.

We had a fanastic holiday. It's just a pity we had to come home.

“A great time in beautiful Dartmouth”
Reviewed 8 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Had a really good time thank you. The property is lovely and so well equipped. When we arrived it was spotless. Loved being SO close to the river and everything else just a short walk away. We certainly won't hesitate to recommend it and would love a return visit ourselves!

“We had a fantastic week!”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We had a fantastic week ( and certainly couldn't have had better weather!) The apartment was really great and was the icing on the cake. It was very clean and comfortable with lots of room for us all. It was very well equipped with everything we needed and the welcome pack was a lovely personal touch. Location was perfect being a stone's throw from the town and river front and we had no problem with parking. It was lovely being able to just leave the car and explore by foot, train and boat! We hope to return to Dartmouth and would love to stay here again.

“Fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 for a stay in April 2012

In April 2012 we had a lovely relaxing break with friends in this lovely apartment in the Centre of Dartmouth. All the furnishings were spotless & felt luxurious. Everything was provided including a welcome package of tea/coffee/milk/biscuits which made a very nice touch after a long journey.

Definatley would stay here again as it felt like " home from home."
