I would go direct next time as booking.com was a bit of a nightmare and I couldnt get hold of anyone at either plum locations or booking.com to get back to me as they took money out of my account without notifying me first. But I did get it sorted eventually and it was a nice place to stay.

                                                                                        5 of 5
                                                                                        As a first time user of Owners Direct, and a last minute booking, I was a little apprehensive about booking our week away, but I found it to be a very smooth transaction. The owner responded within 10 minutes to say we could book our holiday, and all was paid and secured. Fantastic. The apartment was just as described. Recently renovated, light and airy, with all the essentials you needed. Added touches of playing cards and dominoes to use in the lounge. Plus towels and linen provided. The apartment was more than adequate for a family of six (plus family dog). As we was on the ground floor - it was really easy to take the dog out early am / late pm for comfort breaks, and there is a small 'park area' as you exit the entrance/car park to the right just 2 mins away on the corner, or you have the larger grassed cliff area (with beautiful views of the coastline) just 4 mins away as you exit the entrance/car park to your left and then the next street on the left. This grassed cliff area is used by all, and every morning there was somebody there ensuring it was kept immaculate. Active cleaning, litter collected, bins emptied and plants watered. As mentioned the views are spectacular, and access to the beaches is found here. Oddicombe beach via the lift (no dogs allowed on the beach), and Babbecombe beach via a steep walk down (dogs allowed), added bonus of being able to walk from one to the other along the front. There are hotels, bars/restaurants along the cliff area, and it was lovely to be able to sit outside, with a meal or drink and take in the views. The apartment is ideally placed - as 5 mins walk to Babbacombe centre - Tesco Express, Fish & Chips, etc or 10 mins walk to St Marychurch with more shops, etc (including a Waitrose and Sainsbury's). A short drive away from Torquay and Paignton - so ideally placed. Back to the apartment - as recently renovated it was all clean and new, and had adequate utensils, etc for a family of 6. There was enough cooking facilities, table and chairs, etc - but with one toaster, microwave, mini oven and two cooking rings, we cooked in two sittings - first the kids, then the adults - I think we may have struggled to cook enough for all to eat at the same time, but would of managed albeit with some juggling! Its not your kitchen from home, but it is absolutely sufficient for what you need on holiday. We never used the dishwasher! But the washer/dryer was a great bonus!! Will definitely be returning.

We even tried to extend our stay we were so impressed. The apartment has everything you need and more although we didn't cook, as there are too many lovely places nearby. We stayed with our two children so had a double bed and bunk beds. The apartment was spotlessly cleaned and we appreciated the two bathrooms. Location is brilliant. A two minute walk to the cliff railway which takes you down to the very lovely Oddicoombe beach where there's lots of water sports on offer. We were even lucky enough to see two of the local seals. It's also a 5 min walk to the model village which is well worth a visit too. There's lots of lovely pubs and of course the famous Hanburys fish n chip shop very local and of course Babbacoombe downs which has some very beautiful views at sunset. We cannot say a bad word about our trip, we will definitely be returning!! 10/10!! xx
