“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The road is narrow, but the other few residents who live along route (a couple hundred yards) travel at a snail's pace and the chance of meeting someone coming the other way is pretty slim. Overboard's newly built parking area was ideal for our large estate car.
Maybe there had been a garden before the parking structure was built, but our dog loved the cool kitchen floor to snooze, the very large deck for sunning and the beach for romping.
The double glazing does seem to be in less than ideal condition in some windows - but we had some great weather so they didn't factor.
The door on the washer needs mending which required my wife's brains to suss out, but the machine did work. No Aga, and thank goodness in the summer there wasn't one. There is underfloor heating downstairs that we never had to use.
The kitchen is extremely well kitted out. There is even a Breville Cafe Series 4 slice toaster - which makes the world's best (and slowest) toast. Well worth the wait.
The local pub was boarded up and by the looks of it, that's probably a good thing. The bar almost next door serves a good pint of Doombar. The flat screen TV, blue-ray and Sky controls took my seven year old son a minute to fathom. It was a chore getting him to stop switching on the James Bond movie channel at every opportunity.
Glorious view, quiet and friendly spot with only the sound of the waves at night in the distance. I'm tempted not to post this as it will no doubt be booked solid from now on.
And another tip - We traveled from outside London starting late afternoon on a Saturday. No traffic whatsoever at any point on the journey.

Management Response
2 Jul 2013
I am sorry to hear about the issues you had at Overboard and if you had reported the faults on the items you mentioned I am sure they would have been rectified by the house management team. The house under went some major refurbishment during April and May which included a complete redecoration, installation of a new shower room downstairs and a new lobby area with new flooring etc. The laundry facilities were moved into the kitchen area to were the old Aga was located and this has been removed from the property details now. Very sorry to hear about the Pub in Seaton now closing, but there is another bar and beach cafe there.
