“Lovely accommodation and brilliant location.”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment was lovely, high standard of cleanliness. We received a warm welcome from the owner and had a fabulous time. The flat had all the facilities we needed. We'll happily return to High Gables in future.

“Perfect accomodation for the perfect holiday”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

As a surprise for my parents I decided to book a holiday for the three of us, as they had not been on holiday in ten years. My mum has a range of health and mobility issues, and that meant that there were a number of factors that I had to take into consideration before booking an apartment, such as the space in the bathroom, accessibility and location in relation to the things we would be doing whilst away.

After two hours, I knew I had found the perfect place and booked it straight away without hesitation. It was everything I was looking for, and the view of the steam train going past the window was the icing on the cake.

The week before we were due to go on holiday, I emailed the owner for more details on how to pick up the keys and where our parking space was. He replied quickly and gave me all of the information I requested.

We arrived mid afternoon and I was delighted to find that the apartment is even nicer than it shows on the photos. Everything was modern and clearly finished to a high standard. The finishing touches included towels shaped like animals on the beds, and delighted my mum. The little things really add up.

For the full week, everything in the apartment was wonderful. The beds were comfy and it became the perfect place to relax after a day of adventures. We may have only just left but we are already talking about going back again.

“Fantastic holiday rental - will be booking again!”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at High Gables while we were on a four day break in Paignton. Accommodation is very modern and the location is just perfect as it is short walk from Goodrington beach. When we arrived we were so pleased to see a Welcome Pack containing essentials like tea, coffee, jams, milk and bread. The towels were crafted into swans which was a great touch. We will definitely stay again in the future - what a perfect holiday rental!

“Fantastic Location!”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at High Gables for a long weekend over Easter with our 5 year old. Having not used a holiday letting property before we were anxious on what to expect, but as soon as we arrived we were amazed! The property itself is located very close to the seafront with easy access and allocated parking. The apartment itself really is a 'home from home' experience with everything you would need for a short or indeed longer stay. I cannot fault this property in anyway and will definitely be returning!

“Great holiday accommodation - highly recommended.”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The accommodation was very good, spacious, clean and well presented. Very comfortable beds. The location was fantastic - a short walk to the beach and parks. We received a very warm welcome. The owners had left a welcome pack of fresh organic bread, butter, jam and marmalade. A hot pot of coffee was brewing and there was milk and ice-cubes in the fridge/freezer. Overall, great accommodation and a fantastic holiday destination - I recommend them highly.

“Ideal location”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The apartment was in an excellent location, in walking distance of goodrington beach and paignton town. It was clean and homely and had a lovely welcome pack left for us either fresh coffee, organic bread along with many other items. We had our six year old with us who loved running from the front room to the bedrooms continuously!! Hope the apartment below weren't too bothered by this. She Also loved watching the steam train pass by every day.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone.

One thing that did arise was that there was no sky available which we made the owners aware of. It wasn't too much of a problem but if the weather had been horrid it could have been an issue especially with our little one. Owner did contact me and explain the reason why, I'm sure this has now been resolved.
