About Wendy Hodges-Jackson

I live in Hertfordshire with my husband and two children. I manage and run my own rental property portfolio business alongside a busy family life. We fell in love with Devon many years ago and found it the perfect antidote to our stressful and hectic life here at home. We love the simplicity and relaxation that Devon offers and the Apartment itself is the perfect tonic for inducing relaxation, fun and happy times. We are always reluctant to leave but come away with a suitcase full of happy memories!

Wendy Hodges-Jackson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Wendy Hodges-Jackson chose South Hams

Our Apartment is located on a stunning beach with fabulous view over to the iconic Burgh Island. The outlook is forever changing and moving as the tides flow in and out cutting us off from the island twice a day. The unique Sea Tractor can take you across to the Island at high tide and adds to the sense of adventure. The South West coastal path is close by and provides scenic coastal views for miles and miles. Leave the car behind and enjoy Nature at its very best!

What makes this apartment unique

Because we enjoy holidaying here so much we have made Apartment 16 a luxury 'home from home' experience. We have taken great care to ensure that every little detail has been thought of - from luxury bedlinen and towels to hand-wash and lotion (created in Devon), to a telescope for watching the horizon, to a Tassimo coffee machine, PlayStation, DVD player, TV's in the both bedrooms, latest DVD's, a juicer, smoothie maker.... the list goes on. Come rain or shine, there is always plenty to do and keep you occupied or simply sit on the window seat and watch the world go by!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"As soon as I stepped through the door I could not help but notice the attention to detail was exceptional. The apartment is decorated and maintained to the highest possible standard, whilst saying this, it also felt very homely, the beds were a dream to sleep in and to wake up and take your breakfast overlooking the wonderful views of the beach and Burgh Island was truly magical. We look forward to returning very soon."

"This apartment takes your breath away from the moment you arrive. The views of Burgh Island and the beach are absolutely spectacular. The apartment is pristine with an interior that is incredibly stylish and luxurious yet, so comfortable with everything you could possibly need for the perfect break away. So much attention to detail has gone into this apartment including gorgeous lights, artwork, furniture, wonderful towels and very snuggly duvets."

"Just spent a weekend at the apartment, what a place! The accommodation is better than in the 5* hotel, attention to detail is superb, bedding and beds are super comfortable, the whole place oozes style and quality! The view from the window is simply mesmerising. We had a great weekend and I would highly recommend this apartment to my friends and family."

Delightful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything. The new glass balconies give the terrace a whole new feel and really do make a difference. It's well furnished and with a week of wall to wall sunshine what more could you ask for? Don't miss out!

We expected luxury, and that is what we received.

  • 5 of 5

No expense appears to have been saved. From the top of the range equipment to the little touches in each room. The views are fantastic, we ate in or on the balcony every evening, the best restaurant in town!

Little Gem By The Sea.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a 6 hour long drive from London. Well what can say, absolute perfection. The location couldn't be any better being right on the seas edge overlooking the Pichard Inn on Burgh Island. The accommodation is superb being fully equipped with everything you could possibly need on a holiday. The quality of the fixtures and fittings are great too with the kitchen being fully fitted with Neff,Bosch and Dualit appliances as well as Joseph Joseph additional kitchen equipment, we truly felt spoit. The whole apartment had touches of luxury in every room with the interior design reflecting a very airy seaside maritime feel.

Evenings were spent on the balcony watching the sunset and Sunday afternoon we even had Sky Sports to watch the football, I mean does it get any better than this?

We have already booked and reserved a week for 2018 as this place is too good to get away and there are many more places in the vicinity that I and my family want to explore. Apartment 16 really is the real deal that is designed to give you that away from it all feel with the added benefits of comfort and luxury.

5-star all round - apartment, facilities, location, convenience. Met our holiday brief.

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive set up at Apartment 16 - inside & out. For a family looking for a 'bucket & spade' holiday with all the convenience of home - this certainly fitted the bill.

The apartment is high-spec self-catering & has everything you need. The kids made great use of the wide selection of DVDs & games.

The site facilities of the pool & cafe were an added bonus and well used.

The location of the apartment on the beach and overlooking Burgh Island was a real treat.

Only hiccup for out 7yr old was not being able to get the PlayStation to work!

We loved it & would happily return.
