About Michelle Hallahan

We purchased this beautiful apartment in August 2013 having immediately fallen in love with it. We wanted something special close to the beach with stunning views and feel that we have the perfect property to offer to our customers to run as our holiday let. We think the apartment is in an excellent location and the perfect choice for a holiday by the sea. We do not live locally but we do have someone who looks after the apartment for us and so would be on hand if any difficulties or problems arise.

Why Michelle Hallahan chose South East Cornwall

I hadn’t been back to Looe since I was a teenager (many years ago). I loved it back then and still do today. Its a lovely place and somewhere that you can relax and unwind. Looe is somewhere we felt we could retire to in future years and absolutely love it here.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in the perfect location, right on the beach yet within a stroll to everything you could want. The apartment is very spacious and there are lovely big windows to the front of the building giving lots of natural light and spectacular views. The kitchen is really big with a table and chairs so you can eat as a family when not dining out.

Ultimate 5* apartment

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 4 days at this lovely apartment and we both fell in love with it. It is spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean, and has absolutely everything you may need and want. The location is brilliant, you can literally roll out of bed and have breakfast in one of Looe's lovely cafes, and multiple restaurants are literally on your doorstep (we recommend Papa Nino for a truly delicious Italian). You can also cook and eat in as the kitchen is fabulously equipped including such luxuries as a dishwasher. The views towards the sea are simply breath taking and we even enjoyed some rain in Looe as that gave us an excuse to have some lazy times in the living room watching the waves roll in. The apartment has a car park which is quite rare in Looe, and last but definitely not the least - Michelle the owner is very helpful and flexible. We are already planning to go back next year and in the meantime we recommend this apartment to anybody who is looking for a spacious and comfortable place in Looe.

Enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Perfect apartment, central and very well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment for our family of 4. Right in the centre of things, right on the beach the furnishings were to a very high standard. Great kitchen with everything you need, well stocked. Parking right in town which is very rare in Looe. The 3 balconies over looking the beach were great, or site inside with the balcony doors open and listen to the waves.

Looe is a great place to stay with many restaurants, pubs and takeaways. Lots to do and not far to get to other places. We had boat trips, walks, beach etc.

Just beware there are 67 stairs up to the apartment but you are rewarded with the best view East, South and West.

Two bathrooms with showers (and one with a bath). The pictures actually don't do it justice as the apartment is large, plenty of room for the 4 of us. We loved it and highly recommend it.

Wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

As described by others the stairs are challenging but only on the first entry. Upon opening the door, the presentation of the apartment along with the exceptional view, dissolves every step from your mind. Our visit was for a 50th birthday and Looe was decided upon as it offered plenty of things to do. Last minute bookings rarely offer such fantastic accommodation but with luck on our side Michelle's apartment was available.

Thank you for the opportunity, this place is firmly on our "return" list for the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Clive for the really nice review. I do agree the stairs are challenging but you do get used to them as you said. The view is definitely worth it too. I am so glad you had a great birthday too and really look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Best wishes Michelle and Will

Perfect apartment, worth every step for the view.

  • 5 of 5

Booked the apartment for my Wife’s birthday stay and we had a great time. The apartment was clean and tidy on arrival, with a little welcome pack and pint of milk in the fridge for our first brew and to take in the view. Cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Looe in the future. Thank you again Michelle.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a nice break to celebrate my 40th birthday which to be honest I'd been dreading, so an escape to Cornwall was my choice of medicine. Booking was a simple process with plenty of useful and speedy communication from the owners. If you are undecided about this holiday let then don't be. The place is much larger than even the photos make out and the sea a heck of a lot closer. There was just my wife and I but I would see no problem with the maximum capacity of 5 living here for the week there is plenty of room. The views were incredible and the sound of the waves so soothing. Got plenty of use from the balconies even in February. A lot of love and care has gone into the property and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. The bed linen and towels all soft and comfortable. It was clean, the heating kept us cosy even on a stormy night we had. The stairs are long but not overly steep and caused us no problems at all and I'm no athlete. The car parking was easy enough and such a huge bonus. The communal areas were clean and decorated, I assume they have been improved since a few previous reviews but I can only tell you what it was like when I was there and that is clean and tidy. And then of course there is the fabulous town of Looe on the literal doorstep. I cannot stress enough how much I enjoyed staying here except to say I would buy this property myself given the chance! Can't wait to return here in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. To hear how much you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed your holiday makes us very happy. We, with the other owners, are trying to improve the communal areas. It is a large and very old building so this does take some TLC but we have noticed a huge improvement since we put the new lighting in. We hope very much to see you again soon. We wish you all the very best and look forward to seeing you soon.
