Five beautifully presented properties in Bigbury on Sea

Presentation is an invaluable part of letting a holiday home in Salcombe, Newton Ferrers, Bigbury on Sea, or anywhere in South Devon, and can be the difference between appearing to be a good holiday home and an exceptional holiday home.  

While design is part of it, as our refurbishment team will tell you, so much is in the weekly presentation of the property so that it appears as you would like to find it.

For example, the set up of a property may include details such as the provision of linen, stair gates, highchairs, travel cots, eco friendly cleaning products and luxury toiletries, stocking the kitchen with oils, herbs, salt, pepper, coffee, and even set up the Playstation or the regular maintenance of the hot tub.  

Meanwhile, on an ongoing basis, the housekeeping and presentation of elements right down to the positioning of the cushions on changeover days, or a meet and greet upon arrival to help familiarise guests with their surroundings are five star touches that bring a hotel feel to a holiday home.  

Then there’s the changeover inventory, which ensures that every guest finds the right crockery, cutlery, pans in the kitchen, games, movies, wi-fi codes in the living areas, and so on, all facing, lying or hanging in your picture perfect fashion.

With 15 years of experience in the holiday property management business, we know the details that make the difference when it comes to presenting your holiday home.  So with that in mind, here we wanted to share three properties in Bigbury on Sea, that illustrate presentation at its best… 

I have just spoken to the current guests at Overcombe who have been there for two weeks and they are absolutely loving the house.  They are really keen to book again next year…They would like to book the whole month!


Let by Perfect Stays, Overcombe is a spectacular property, commanding the best views over Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island.  With a sweeping decking and terrace wrapping around most of the property, Overcombe is an awe-inspiring retreat with immaculate furnishings and finished to the highest specification.

With a property as contemporary and exacting as this, every detail makes a difference to guests from the moment they first walk in the door, which is where the Pebbles property index becomes invaluable.  We prepare one for each property we manage, putting as much information into it as we can, including pictures of how the beds are made and how the house should be presented according to the requirements of the homeowners and their guests.  


New to Pebbles Property Management, 4 Coastguards is one of an intimate collection of high specification houses in a prime beachfront location in Bigbury on Sea.  Designed to maximise the spectacular panoramic views, it is a beautiful reverse level house boasting a spacious balcony and a private garden.  Details include oak flooring and large glass windows as well as carefully considered design such as Bisazza hand-made Italian glass tiles.

While properties like these speak for themselves when guests arrive, such a high standard of style requires that it be kept that way.  Our Property Managers will ensure that any scuff marks are pointed out when any guests leave so that they can be rectified before the next ones arrive, allowing owners to command premium letting prices.  Other details that make the difference are well stocked cupboards with all the basics, milk and bread in the fridge upon arrival and perhaps a welcome hamper including all the ingredients for a Devon cream tea.

Another facility that guests find helpful is a meet and greet to introduce guests to the way the house works and introduce it in the best way possible.  A Pebbles Property Manager will greet them upon arrival, giving them a guided tour of the house and direction on its facilities as well as answering any other questions they may have. 


Let by Helpful Holidays, Avocet is a five star holiday home with modern design and minimalist style.  The property has everything a guest could wish to find in terms of style, facilities and location, with great access to the beach, hot tubs, spacious gardens and many more special requirements catered to.

Pristine surfaces show up the tiniest speck of dust making housekeeping a vital part of presentation.   Property checks are a supremely important part of making sure all details are in place when housekeepers leave it for the last time before guests arrive.  

When housekeeping has completed their work to the highest standards following regularly updated training, a senior housekeeper or dedicated Property Manager will return to the property and enter it as if arriving for the first time, checking that all details are in place.  

This protocol alongside a  a trusting relationship built over time working with the home owners, means that wherever they are in the world, they can be safe in the knowledge that Pebbles will make sure everything is presented as it should be down to the cushions on the sofa and the stock in the cupboards.
