It has made the perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have had a most wonderful holiday at Bay Lodge. It is our third stay in only 13 months because we have simply fallen in love with the place! Derrick and Janet are so welcoming and have created a delightful environment in which one can truly rest and unwind. All one can possibly wish for is in the apartment. It has become like a home from home. I initially booked because of the spectacular sea views from the windows, but there is so much more on offer! A variety of beaches, cliff top walks as well as good shopping are all within easy walking distance. I would say that the apartment is in an excellent location to allow for comfortable day trips all over Cornwall and even into Devon! We personally concentrated on National Trust properties and gardens, of which there are a plenty. We are extremely grateful for having been able to stay in such a beautiful place! It has made the perfect holiday!

Wonderful Apartment With Fantastic Views And Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a fantastic week at the apartment. I choose this apartment as I lived near Fistral Beach years ago and knew the area a little, it is just nicely out of town yet two minutes walk to the beach and many coastal walks. I stayed there alone but the apartment is more than adequate for a family of five or six, the main living areas are spacious and have a very light airy feel. There is also a lovely little patio area with decked seating, even in November I sat outside listening to the sea, just perfect! The standard is very high, not only is everything in excellent condition but it is immaculate and Janet thinks of everything providing lovely little touches in the rooms. Derrick and Janet are excellent hosts, they treat you like one of their own and can't do enough for you .I was a bit nervous being on my own and not knowing where I was staying but now I don't know why! To say they were welcoming was an understatement , spending time with them makes you feel like they are your own family. They both did everything to make my life as easy as possible whilst house hunting and Derrick was happy to give me advice and chauffeur me around, they certainly took me under their wing! I'd only been there a day when they both decided that a light outside the apartment would make me feel safer in the dark , say no more Derrick was straight on the case! Nothing is a problem for them. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, the views are amazing you can sit in the lounge and just watch the beach all day, stunning ! I was very sad to leave such a beautiful relaxing place with such lovely hosts. I'd like to say a big thank you to Derrick and Janet , keep on doing what you are doing and hopefully I will be back soon.

The View....................... picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family have been staying at Janet & Derricks for over 10 years now which says it all really. More hospitable and genuine, friendly hosts you will not find, nothing is too much trouble and we think of them more as an extension of our family now. The apartment has everything, a true home from home but better! The views are stunning and its only a short walk to either Fistral or Crantock beach as well as city centre. I love my early morning walks around the headland or across the beach, cannot wait till we are back there.
