“Lovely apartment in an excellent location”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is the perfect base from which to explore Falmouth and surroundings. Located on a quiet street, easily reached by car, but at the same time very central: Shops, bars and restaurants are just a short stroll away. It has off-street parking, which is a big plus unless you love sideways parking. It has a great view over Falmouth and the bay, and is cosy and well-equipped. We felt immediately at home. All-in-all a wholehearted recommendation!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 10 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The location and the views of the apartment were perfect - only seconds from Market Street where everything seemed to be. The apartment itself was extremely clean, tidy and well presented. The kitchen was fully equipped and it felt like home.

“High spec close to amenities”
Reviewed 14 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Booked a short stay and really happy with the flat. It consists of three rooms, very comfy bedroom, large bathroom with bath and overhead shower with a compact kitchen/lounge. With a balcony overlooking the town and harbour. There is nothing that could make this better. The owners have clearly thought what people wanted and then go on to add more. Washing machine and dishwasher are here also. The flat is clean and modern and the welcome of a bottle of wine, flowers, milk and biscuits was welcome. Also sent me a text on the day wishing me a safe journey. The flat is also 5min walk from the boathouse inn - nice food, easy atmosphere, and a short walk to the town.

Unusually this let also has a dedicated parking space - which if you know Falmouth is a blessing as parking can be tricky
It's February, it's a beautiful sunny day and I'm sat with the balcony door open enjoying the sounds of the sea and the seagulls.

I would absolutely recommend this let -it really is lovely, convenient with attention to detail

“Perfect cosy apartment for visiting Falmouth”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Lovely and clean, perfect place to stay for a relaxed trip to Falmouth. A bottle of wine and biscuits to welcome us was a lovely touch. Good views out over the bay and a little balcony to enjoy breakfast before going out to explore.
