I have been to that flat 2 years ago and everything was ok. This time the apartement was unfortunately not property cleaned. The bathtub was dirty as well as the wardrobe inside and outside, the frigde outside and the side tables. The flat was smelling of mold. The carpet isn´t fixed anymore at several places, may be due to the humidity because it is so close to the water. I think the flat needs a total makeover. It would be a good idea to install some towel racks inside the bathroom and one or two shelves. The ventilator in the bathroom is very dirty and every day dirt - may be caused by the sea gulls - was fallen into the bath tub and the floor. I am very disappointed because I spend a lot of money for this flat.
Very good location - 20 steps to the seafront and lost count of restaurants, pubs and shops all within 200 yards (but not so close as to be a problem). No view, but to be expected with the balance of seafront and town location. Apartment just as described.
The apartment was nicely decorated and furnished. It was fully equipped with all anyone would need. A fantastic location only seconds from the beach, river and town. The allocated parking (a real bonus in Looe) was also only seconds away.
The directions and information supplied were excellent and we had a really enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend.
Fabulous spotless apartment in a wonderful location almost next to the beach. Stayed for a week in April weather was superb so had 3 days on the beach never used the car until it was time to go home. The car parking space next to beach wall was a real bonus stored windbreak in boot of car and hired sunbeds daily we thought we was in the med. The apartment is perfect for two and has everything you could possibly need. We only had breakfast in the apartment but lots of utensils and facilities should you wish to cook any meals. The towels and bed linen are immaculate and bed is very comfortable.
Looe and also Polperro which we visited several times by bus are our favourite places in Cornwall. Lots of bars and amazing restaurants on the doorstep, we found everyone very friendly and helpful. We stayed at this time of year to celebrate my partners birthday, perfect as although everywhere open the locals had time to chat and recognised us after a couple of days. If like us you have visited Looe on day trips many times and loved it so much and wished to stay try Sand Martin you will not be disappointed.
Accommodation in a Fantastic location ideal for all attractions,very quiet and clean. Would certainly re-book
For a self catering weeks stay in a UK seaside location you cannot ask for better. In a quite location in the centre of Looe for a couple, 50 yards from the beach and quayside. We have holidayed in Looe for decades and is as perfect now as ever. It is a working fishing village with plenty of activities for visitors from 2 hour mackerel fishing trips for £12, glass bottom boat, speed boat and various other trips plus a 50p ferry between West and East Looe. Shopping and places to eat, brilliant especially seafood being so fresh from the harbour. The beach is golden and clean and big enough for all with a gentle slope. Hire your wind breaks and deckchairs along the promenade. Cornish pasties are plentiful and would recommend Martins Dairy as the best as they have a bit of pepper in them to improve the taste. They also do ice creams topped with clotted cream - lovely - they can also post cream through the post at anytime of the year, great for Christmas we found.
There are 2 properties to rent. Sand Martin and Sand Dune, for a great location for a holiday you won't be disappointed as nobody wants that in accommodation. You can park your car in the Mill Pool car park over the bridge and pay via your mobile phone for the week. Have fun and do try crab fishing along the harbour, great fun for all ages.

We have just returned from Looe after a week's holiday staying at Sand Martin. Sand Martin is such a beautiful and modern cottage in a more than perfect location and so close to the beach. Sand Martin was equipped with everything you need and was so cosy, clean and welcoming. We enjoyed a few sunny and warm days on the beach as well as visits to Polperro, Dartmoor Zoo and Bondmin Jail. Sadly, we didn't get to go on the glass bottom boat as it was too rough whenever we tried. We also went crabbing which was fun and sat on the Banjo Pier. In terms of eating out we would recommend Mama J's Italian, Moonlight Tandoori and Smugglers Cott which was our personal favourite and for take away, Daves Diner. Definitely Sarah's pasties and for a drink we preferred The Ship Inn and the Admiral Boscarn for its roof garden. On a negative note in terms of restaurants we would not recommend The Cornerstone. We found this to be extremely slow service, poor food quality and overpriced. We would be more than happy to highly recommend Sand Martin to others and no doubt we will return in the future.
