Without doubt the best equipped and best furnished apartment we have ever rented and we have stayed in lots over the years. The meet and greet package are second to none and great care is taken over the customers every need. The owners are to be saluted and I can find no fault whatsoever. A real home from home. We loved it and we will be back.

“Fabulous apartment with thoughtful and generous owners”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a perfect place to stay, everything is fresh, bright, clean and tasteful and the goodies awaiting us were much appreciated. The views from the balcony over the harbour and town are fabulous, plus it is only a short walk to the centre of town. We will be back :)

“warm week”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

enjoyed fine weather, good location, but steep walk back to flat, downstairs neighbour had noisy Saturday night party, probably others would have followed if England had stayed in World Cup.

“Excellent spotless apartment, well located with great views and a super welcome hamper”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at 5 Porth Gwell in May 2014 and had an excellent holiday. The location was excellent and within easy walking distance of the town centre. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We used the small balcony area many times during our stay and enjoyed the sea views over a coffee and tasty saffron bun; the latter a welcome element of the excellent welcome hamper that awaited our arrival. The hamper also included milk, butter, artisan bread and best of all a decent bottle of red.
The owners were welcoming and very accommodating and I would like to thank them both for providing the basis for a wonderful holiday. I am sure that we will be back!

“The perfect little place to stay in Falmouth.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This apartment really is a home from home, with everything you could ever want and need for a short stay, with lovely personal touches and tasteful décor. The owners Jude and John were so helpful and we loved the little welcome pack left for us as a taste of Cornwall, clotted cream butter, Cornish seaded bread, saffron scones, a bottle of red wine, fresh herbs and flowers... I arrived alone and watched my husband's ship come in to port from the balcony and the amazing view it has over the harbour. The bed was super comfy with Egyptian cotton linen and towels in the bathroom. No expense has been spared here and it was worth every penny, which was coincidentally far more reasonable than any B&B I would have found. I would not hesitate to stay here again and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Excellent stay.Great location. The apartment is spotless, a real home from home. We were spoiled with a lovely Welcome Pack and flowers on the table, a much appreciated touch. We could not fault the apartment . My Husband and I had a three night break. Loved our stay in Falmouth . We met the owners Jude And John and they could not have been more helpful. We would highly recommend this apartment. 5 star it really is !

“Perfect birthday/new year trip to cornwall”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

My wife and I have recently returned from a trip to Falmouth between Christmas and the New Year, where we stayed in this great self catering apartment.

The apartment is in a great location in a new build near one end of Falmouth high street. It is well presented and the extra touches like the bottle of wine and locally sourced Cornish produce waiting for us on arrival made us feel right at home.

The weather held out for us and we were even able to have breakfast on the balcony overlooking the harbour on two mornings.

We would highly recommend this apartment to couples looking for a romantic break in Falmouth.
