We often get asked do you take dogs ?

Yes we do .

 

 

 

 

 

We are not best the people to tell you about what we offer so let me introduce you to Dylan and Whiskie

Hi , we are Dylan and Whiskie and our carers (who like to think of themselves as our owners!) are the owners of the apartments you will be staying in.
Firstly, congratulations on a great choice. There is loads of open space and plenty of opportunities to go for walks and swim in the sea. We really enjoy taking our carers for a long walk along the seafront and chasing a few balls into the sea. We can go on the beach between October and April but in the summer it is a very short walk to Goodrington beach where we are welcome all year.

Just a few tips before you set off from home.

Make sure they bring YOUR stuff as well as theirs. Don’t you find it frustrating when they’ve forgotten your blanket, food dish, favourite ball or, the worse possible scenario, your food!! Yes, it has happened and then we have to settle for some poor substitute … Not here though, we have educated our carers and they provide a bed for us, a food dish, a nice microfibre towel to wipe us down when we have been outside or in the sea, providing they have booked the Meadfoot or Watcombe apartments. Check the apartment here https://www.fivewayapartments.co.uk/meadfoot/

There is a bit of formal stuff … stay with me here as this is important for your fellow pooches who will follow in the future.

Here are the rules we need to comply with:
– Ensure all your mess is cleaned up and deposited in the bin
– If you’re wet then get dried off before you enter the apartments
– Don’t get up on the furniture (this really annoys the cleaners)
– Don’t go in the bedroom
– Keep the noise down. We all like a bit of bark now and then but there are other guests who may not appreciate it
– I know you won’t do this, but no chewing anything you’re not supposed to … otherwise you’ll get told off and you’ll have to pay for it!

Your carers will be charges a small fee for us to stay, no where near a s much as they have to pay ! The really great news is some of that money goes to help some of our less fortunate friends who would be homeless if it was not for Animals in Distress . See their web site for the amzing work they do at https://animalsindistress.uk.com/

Paignton is a great dog friendly location and you will find that you will be allowed into many of the cafes and restaurants … you may even get a few treats, the Shoreline by the Vue cinema is great for this With great walks, lots to do and many attractions we’re sure you’re going to have a wonderful time.

Have a great stay.

And last but not least

And last but not least our leader and project manager.

Every organisation needs someone who is going to make sure things get done in a timely fashion. This is Kevin’s role. He is also responsible for the marketing of the business.

Past Career

After the Corporate world decided they no longer wanted his services, Kevin decided he didn’t want the corporate world either.

Kevin was an IT Project Manager with Woolworths, remember them ?
He decided to invest in his personal development and joined Simon Zutshi’s Property Mastermind Foundation course. He saw the opportunities available to us and embarked on his Mastermind Programme. This focused his investment activities.

Values

Values are a key part of what we do at Fiveway Apartments and Kevin’s key values are honesty, freedom, fun , security and make a difference.

Right People Right Roles

To ensure we have the right people in the right roles we use Wealth Dynamics to profile our key members. Kevin is an accumulator.
The Accumulator is the safest profile
They rely on a system to achieve incremental wealth growth
Many see accumulators as indecisive and procrastinators
And they often go unnoticed.
Accumulators are steady and dependable
They rarely act on impulse and fail if they have not set the criteria to take action. Often accused of procrastinating, they simply need more data to make an informed decision.
Once Accumulators connect to the right team they can quickly be lifted while keeping the team grounded.
They ensure that everything is in order and that what needs to get done gets done on time. Successful Accumulators are happy to remain down-to-earth, holding the kite strings while others fly high.

Meet our Numbers Controller

Every successful business needs to understand and control the numbers. It is even more important in the hospitality business when you are in a seasonal business to have tight control. This is why Bernadette is on the team our Lord of the numbers and the detail.

Past Career

Bernadette has built a number of businesses in IT and property over the past 20 years. With a passion for detail she is very capable of driving the growth of a business. Over the past 10 years Bernadette focused on building a successful property portfolio across England and Wales specialising in providing high end accommodation for professional sharers. Now, building on this success and experience, Bernadette has diversified into Serviced Accommodation and Commercial to Residential Developments
Running her own businesses has given Bernadette a great sense of freedom. “It is an amazing feeling to be able to work when and where you want. Importantly, it gave me the time and flexibility to spend time with my daughter as she goes through her teenage years”.
Living in the stunning Brecon Beacons Bernadette, with husband Ian and two dogs, loves walking and experiencing the mountains and scenery, whatever the time of year!

Right people, right roles

A successful coach and mentor, Bernadette is passionate about helping others to succeed in their property journey in an ever changing and challenging environment.
To ensure we have the right people in the right roles we use Wealth Dynamics to profile our key members. Bernadette is a Lord. Lords are rarely seen.
They are often in control of natural resources and man made structures. They act slowly and certainly, which frustrates many around them.
Lords love the detail, and are renowned for their thrift
Introvert Lords value numbers over people
Lords don’t have time for politics or niceties. They would rather deal with simple legwork than fancy footwork.
Lords love certainty and hate risk

Who are the team behind Fiveway Apartments

We are always looking to improve

Every successful business must continually improve if they are to stay in business. At Fiveway we do not just want to stay in business we want to be the go to place you choose to stay if you are looking for a short break in U.K.
Ian is our Continuous Improvement Guru. He constantly reviews our guests feedback and implements improvements wherever possible.
Ian has been a property investor and coach for over 10 years. He lives with his family and 2 dogs in the beautiful Brecon Beacons in Wales.

Past career

Prior to property Ian had a successful career in corporate IT working for many of the blue chip IT companies where he gained experience in many large, complex global infrastructure projects. Through this work he acquired some key business skills in people, project and problem management that he has been able to transfer to the world of property and hospitality.
With a portfolio across the UK, Ian has gained experience of various environments and their specific needs. Over the past few years Ian has been focused on the South Wales market where he has become an expert in shared housing (HMO’s) and built a successful portfolio. More recently Ian has moved onto other strategies including Serviced Accommodation and Commercial to Residential conversions.
Ian has a particular interest in personal development and mindset and is a supporter of the theory that most people’s challenges lie with mindset rather than knowledge.

Right people in the right roles

To ensure we have the right people in the right roles we use Wealth Dynamics to profile our key members. Ian is a Mechanic. A mechanic has the ability to control and manage people
This is without necessarily having any charismatic leadership qualities. Mechanics endure and tend to rely on duplication and replication, and love to challenge the status quo.

Mechanics may get caught up in the detail
This can be at the expense of the big picture

Mechanics are great at finishing things
They are perfectionists, which is why they cannot resist finding ways to do things better.
They get hands-on with their systems and prefer to study how to improve things with their hands dirty. As a result, they have little interest in impressing with or indulging in their appearance.

Most Mechanics have companies with better systems than their competitors
However, they have not leveraged these systems with stronger products produced by others, or their business is limited by their autocratic management style and high staff turnover.

Successful mechanics remain hands-on
They continue fine-tuning their systems long after they have delegated many other areas of their business. This is where they see the greatest results, and where they gain the most satisfaction.

Green Tourism

 

Reducing plastic waste is a popular topic these days and one that is close to our hearts at Fiveway Apartments. Our first step was to support local groups, Living Coasts & Paignton Zoo but we also support The Marine Conservation Society
It’s one thing though to give passive support to these organisations so we have now started to look at what we can do as a company to be more proactive.
We now have a stated goal of reducing the amount of single use plastic we consume. Now we know we aren’t going to be able to do it all overnight but there are changes we can implement swiftly. But it’s not just about making changes to plastics they also have to be cost neutral so that we have to be creative in the way we solve problems!
We are also looking at better sourcing of other consumables like for instance providing Devon Tea, reducing the amount of travel miles.
On our own we can’t change the world but we believe that we have a responsibility to at least do our bit and if we can inspire our guests and suppliers to do the same then that impact will be increased.
If you have any great ideas on how we could implement change then please do share your thoughts with us.
