“An enjoyable base for a great holiday”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

Lovely holiday let in a great location. Refurbed really well, great view from a very generous balcony, nice & clean, well equipped, well maintained. Free Wi-Fi (with good speed) a nice touch. Good base to explore Looe and surrounding area but a little too far to walk if you have smalls. Beech is ok but more slate than sand, great for rock pooling when tide is out though Looe Harbour must be the Mecca of crabbing for me, jetty is good for diving off of when tide is half in, tidal pool gives a nice and safe area to play, shame it doesn't hold the water in better as the tide goes out. Black Rock Café serves nice food, Coddy Shack just up the road serves great fish and chips to eat in or take away but remember to book if you want to eat in. The entire resort is being restored which should be great when done. The current work being done does not interfere or spoil the holiday from this let. Looe has some really nice cafes, seafood stalls etc. Polperro is a little gem and worth a visit, looked like it had a lot of good places to eat, shame we didn't have time on the day to find out.
Great for Families who like/require the P&Q in the evenings, as we do.

“Very enjoyable stay and an immaculate villa!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Villa in lovely location with good views of Millendreath beach. Villa is very well equipped, clean and tidy. Lovely spacious balcony.
Quite a few steps to the villa so quite difficult access for people with any mobility problems. The restaurant on the beach does lovely food for a reasonable price. The beach also offers water sports equipment for hire. Sea was very calm and safe whilst there.
Local shop is quite a distance away if walking.
Walking to Looe on the coastal path is 1 1/4 mile but is up and down very steep hills. Walking the other way to Seaton is 2 1/2 miles and again is hilly.
Looe beach is sandy, clean and water is safe. Lots of shops and restaurants to wander around.
Overall a very good base. Would stay again.

We had a fantastic stay at RockPools. Facilites and equipment provided made our stay very relaxing. The apartment is spotless with great views across to the sea. Appreciate all the effort put into making this a perfect holiday location.

“Amazing villa”

Stayed here with my Mum. The villa is stylish, modern and full of light, with an amazing view from the terrace, just perfect for morning coffee and glass of wine in the evening. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need and more. Everything feels very homely... The area is lovely and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing break from everyday buzz. Beach is just a couple of minutes away and the food in beach cafe is out of this world!
Thank you for a great stay, we will definitely come back!

“Wonderful location; great views; everything you need clost at hand.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Rockpools the 'elevated position' gave us great views over the coast and to watch some pretty crazy weather roll in. The apartment provides everything you might want for your stay and if further praise was required our daughter is already volunteering her pocket money to pay for next year.
The fish and chip 'restaurant' on the road into Looe is a gem - what a great place - fab atmosphere and lovely food.
Loads to do in the area -as you'd expect from Cornwall.

A lovely place to stay. Thank you.

“Excellent accomodation”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a first class villa with all the amenities. The holiday village is undergoing a transformation but don't let this deter you as Rock Pools is fabulous accommodation and excellent base to tour around Cornwall.

The villa is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need.

Am ideal hideaway to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Would thoroughly recommend and the owners Graham and Pat are very helpful. 10 out of 10

“Lovely villa, had a great holiday”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The villa was just like the photos. It was lovely and clean and the décor was well thought out. We loved sitting on the balcony for a drink in the evening. The Black Rock café made a lovely breakfast and The Coddy Shack was great for fish and chips. The walk to Looe was enjoyable along the cliffs and at low tide across the rocks. We also found the coastal path the opposite way towards Seaton took you through the woods to the Monkey Sanctuary which our 10 year old daughter loved. We found it really helpful to have all the information of the villa and leaflets, maps etc. Thank you for a lovely holiday and we really hope we can visit again in the future.

Thank you for your kind words, we do work very hard to maintain the villa to a high standard, after all its the least you deserve when you book a break away.
There are so many great walks from the Villa, the Monkey Sanctuary is a hot favourite for all ages, it seems most of us can't resist the cute little Monkeys fooling around!
