I cannot speak highly enough of Alverton appts. I rented both the villa and the cottage in August this year. On arrival Shirley the housekeeper gave us a warm welcome. The appartments were clean and well maintained and fully equipped with everything we needed. I could not believe how huge the appartments were, especially the villa. Each of the three bedrooms was huge with a large double bed in each. The garden faced onto the beautiful beach and the sun sets were amazing. During our stay we saw baby turtles being born and finding their way to the sea (about 20 yards away from our appartment). Turtles swam up to us as we enjoyed a 'sea bath' directly in front of the appartment. We swam with turtles, rays, puffer fish and millions of beautiful tropical fish. My 10 year old loved the water sports - fishing, sailing and jet skiing. My 13 year old daughter enjoyed the locally made jewellry. I enjoyed my wedding reception in the grounds of the villa - a perfect location! I would highly recommend this accommodation to a friend and I hope to be able to stay at Alverton again soon. I would highly recommend Smiley's turtle and shipwreck trips - a genuinely lovely man who is trustworthy, knowledgeable and excellent with children.
