“Fabulous Holiday Home”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I have named this review 'home'as this property really feels like that. I arrived very late, but Tony was there to greet me, show me round and help with my luggage as my partner could not join me until later.
The home has been lovingly restored and has everything you could need for a perfect break. It is in a super, central location and the bedroom overlooks a very private courtyard at the rear of the property which means that it is very peaceful.
All in all, I think that this is an ideal retreat for couples of any age.

“Wonderful short stay - great location”
Reviewed April 1, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We had a very relaxing 2 night stay at Ship Ahoy. The apartment was very comfortable and well appointed and the extra touches including the cream tea was very welcome. We would highly recommend Ship Ahoy and will hopefully stay again!
Thanks to Tony for such a warm welcome.

“Wonderful location and amenities”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We loved our stay. Karen and Tony have restored their accommodation to a high standard with every detail you could ask for in a home away from home. The apartment is set back off the Quay so its nice and quiet and is in easy walking distance to all things Appledore. We will definitely come back again and would not hesitate to give this property and owners the highest recommendation. Three notable things which are not in the owner's control are parking, cell and internet services. Parking in October was challenging for us although we managed by moving the car when spaces were available on the Quay. Internet was patchy instead go for a pint at the Seagate Hotel and use their wifi and cell coverage with O2 was near zero which is a Devon thing not just Appledore. Apparently, EE or Three is the best to use in the area. Even with these small challenges, it was still a remarkable stay and we thank Karen and Tony for their kind hospitality.

Thanks so much folks. Delighted you enjoyed your stay and we hope you'll come and visit again sometime. We'd happily welcome you back. Ps. we're happy to report that we now have superfast broadband which makes a huge difference to the wifi situation, however we would still recommend going for a pint at the Seagate too ;-)

“Perfect long weekend stay”
Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My partner and I enjoyed the perfect stay at Ship Ahoy. The only shame was that we couldn't stay longer! The apartment was perfect and we were very excited to be the first people to stay there since the refurbishment. The apartment was exceptionally comfortable and the kitchen fully decked out. Appledore is a lovely village and the apartment perfectly situated for exploring. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay and have already been recommending it to friends and family.

“Utopia, beyond expectations”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

If you could describe a perfect place to stay then Ship Ahoy is that. On arrival we were met by Tony whose property this is and he managed to get us in a little earlier which was great as we travelled 252 miles so a rest was sorely needed. The apartment was very very clean, with all mod cons and some nice fresh scones with cream and jam welcomed us. There was ample space and the bed was to die for, so comfortable but beautifully furnished. Now for the rating of the shower, well i only use showers and have had many with a weak flow and some with a powerful jet but this is the dogs proverbial, BEST SHOWER EVER!
We will want to return in the future. Book early because this place is going to get very busy. Thank you for a wonderful stay we felt that we had the best place to stay in the whole of Devon.
Very happy
