About us
Vane Tower Penthouse



We are Katie and Steve, the owners of Vane Tower Penthouse. We moved to Torquay in December 2017 after visiting the bay for the first time just three months earlier. When we walked along the South West Coast Path we fell in love with the beautiful coastline .

Back then we were at a crossroads in our life. Our three children had left home and Katie was recovering from surgery. We decided a complete change was needed.

As luck would have it, Vane Tower, part of an Italian-style Victorian villa, was for sale. Steve’s former life was in design and build and he renovated the self-contained penthouse into a holiday apartment. Work was completed in December 2018. 

We want to treat our guests as we would like to be treated, so we provide fresh flowers, some welcome goodies and basics including: kitchen roll, hand soap, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, a clean sponge and cloth and refuse bags.  There is a mini Nespresso machine which takes Nespresso compatible pods.

We also supply beach towels on request, beach mats, buckets and spades, a picnic rug and a disposable barbeque. There are two hairdryers, a Lava Brightsounds Bluetooth speaker and USB sockets.

When we aren’t working, we can be found on our paddle boards or walking our dogs. We are passionate about where we live and want our guests to enjoy this beautiful part of South Devon as much as we do, so please don’t hesitate to ask us if you need any information.

We hope to welcome you to stay with us soon

PS: If you can’t get the dates you want, you may be interested in our brand new apartment, Blue Bayou,on the other side of the bay. To find out more click here
