Beach Front Apartment in Looe, Cornwall, England - Fabulous Location And Seconds To The Harbour, Shops And Restaurants
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 Looe
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.

Half Term Break
The property is everything that it says on the website, the location is superb and we enjoyed the kitchen and the 'cosy' lounge area on most days, as it was pretty wet and windy most of the week. That didn't matter as you can literally step out of the flat onto the beach, which we did most days for a bracing walk. Most reviews seem to mention the steps up to the property but we can only reiterate that it's a small price to pay for the view.
We had an issue with the getting into the property as the wrong code was given to us but this was soon rectified.
Although it is great to find a property in Looe with an allocated parking space, the week we were there given the size of the space and the angle of the parking bays it proved impossible to actually get our car into the space, something echoed by others in the block of Apartments. This is a problem that needs addressing to alleviate the need to park in the long stay car park across the river with its associated cost.
Overall a lovely place to stay.
Lovely apartment in a great location
This is a lovely apartment, although the stairs are a bit steep so you need to be relatively fit as it’s on the top floor but it’s worth it because you get fabulous views of the beach and coastline. It was decorated very tastefully and was spotlessly clean. Great sized kitchen and living room, although bedrooms 2 and 3 were quite small they would be suitable for children. Parking was a little challenging as it’s a relatively small parking area for all the apartments and if there are a number of larger vehicles it can be difficult to manoeuvre in and out of your space but again a -lus to have a parking space so close to the beach. Would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the apartment. I agree the stairs can be challenging but definitely worth it when you get to the top.
We would very much welcome you back and thank you for the recommendation.
