Great location, excellent property with good facilities

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment was clean, modern, light and warm. Being close to, but not in, Falmouth was ideal, as was its proximity to the Helford River. The coast path and a fantastic sheltered beach are just below the property, and the living area offers wonderful views of the entrance to Falmouth Harbour. The lovely pool and hot tub/sauna are great extras, both after long walks and for rainy days.

As the main access to the apartment is via carpeted stairs, one needs to plan ahead what to do with sandy shoes and other sandy/salty equipment when returning from the beach. The lawn in front of the properties can be accessed from the sides of each block of apartments, but the French windows that are on the ground floor then need to be open for access - it is just something one needs to be aware of before setting off for the beach.

We were lacking oven gloves and a tea cosy, but these are minor points and perhaps they are normally available.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would most definitely use the site again.

Beautiful location, wonderful beach and views.

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our holiday, plenty to see and do if you can drag yourself away from the beach in the doorstep. Facilities in estate very good. Property very clean and had all that you could ask for. Swimming pool was an added bonus, clean and warm. Children's bedroom curtains need blackout lining. The damp smell in downstairs bedrooms needs to be addressed. I don't like the smell of plug in air fresheners but had to use them for a few hours each day. Otherwise a wonderful holiday

Property was exactly as advertised, great position, well equipped and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location, 5 minutes down the steps to the sea, the onsite pool was great, it was really quiet at this time of year. We still swam in the sea every day, bought wetsuits from Falmouth 10 minutes in the car. hired kayaks and paddleboard and had a great time. When day was done put little one to bed and sat on the balcony having a glass of wine looking at the sea, perfect! would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed stay with virtually your own beach.
