A lovely apartment and great location, the kids loved the heated pool, the only down side was the sofa bed the kids had to stay on was coved in dog hair and no spare towels for the kids,we also had to put the covers on the bedding, we're as the otter beds were made up.
at Fistral beach holiday home. The view from the home was stunning and one of the best I've had. It was lovely to be able to watch the waves crashing onto fistral beach at anytime of the day. Only a short walk to the beach, a shop and to lodge on the headland for a lovely meal while watching the sunset. The heated pool was a massive bonus and me and the girls used it daily.
We were very comfortable in the home and would definitely stay again in the future.
Thank you for a great home for our holiday.
Perfect location, stunning beaches in both directions. Several excellent eateries within walking distance. Ideal base to explore the rest of Cornwall. Our second stay at this property - hopefully not our last.
Our first family holiday was one to remember.
I had never visited Newquay, so on arrival to the apartment I was blown away with the view we had of Fistral bay. The apartment was fully equipped with everything you could need for a family with 2 young children and 2 dogs.
The heated swimming pool was like bath water and became our daily indulgence.
The location was ideal as there was only a short walk in either direction to 2 beaches, cafes and bars. Crantock beach, was good for rock pooling and fishing off the Pentire headland at high tide.
Even though we were in a holiday apartment we found the neighbors and locals we very friendly and offered great advice on where to visit.
I would highly recommend stay at Fistral Beach holiday home, Lesley the owner was very quick to reply to our initial enquiry and very professional to deal with.
The view in the photo is the view you get and it is fabulous! The location is superb - a short walk takes you to Fistral Beach or into Newquay town itself - you can literally park up the car and leave it for your stay. Very clean, well equipped and would suggest more comfortable for 4 than 6 - 1 x double bedroom with the Fistral view and a twin looking to the street, the extra sleeping is a sofa bed in the living room. The pool has to be one of the best heated swimming pools we have ever used - it was so warm, we could use in when the weather wasn't at its best. Seperate changing room available by pool which helped as there is no direct access from apartment - have to go via front door and round the complex. Pool well maintained and cleaned daily. Loved staying here, was quite a wrench to leave but am promising myself to be back soon!
What I wrote to the owner after our stay sums it up.... The house was thoughtfully, comprehensively and logically equipped and laid out. Your customer service ethic was equally good. That all makes for a good experience so well done.
In addition the location is great an the heated outdoor pool a great feature
Where can I start? The property is very well equipped. Virtually everything has been provided for you to have a great stay. If you cook at home you have all that you need and even a dishwasher. Everything is provided for you down to kitchen towels, teatowels and those pesky things you forgot to bring like kitchen foil, sewing kit etc.
The place is absolutely spotless and here was even a welcome tray in the kitchen with some tea, coffee, juice and biscuits. So very thoughtful, Thankyou :)
As there were only 2 in our party we did not need to use the twin bedroom but it is well laid out and plenty of room in there. Plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe.
The main bedroom has the most wonderful view of the sea and beach. To wake up to that view and sit in bed watching the waves is just so relaxing.
There is a big wardrobe with loads of hangers. A chest of drawers and bedside tables so loads of space to put your clothes. The bed is really comfortable. We have a very good bed at home and many times when we go away the beds are not up to scratch so this made a very pleasant change.
The lounge area is very comfortable. There is a panel heater in there for heating and a greet fire, perfect for when the nights turn chilly. There are even some books and DVD's and loads of leaflets with information about the local area. Wifi has recently been installed, great news for techy dudes like my husband.
There are sliding doors leading out to a balcony overlooking the outdoor pool & Fistral Beach. It really is an a fabulous location as the property is on a peninsula so you really can see the waves almost alongside the property as the tide comes in. We went out of season and the weather was quite changeable as we had expected. It was great to see the rough waves when it was windy, but also a few days it was sunny and the view was just gorgeous.
It is a short walk to the beach. You can either go down the steps or walk on a path alongside the golf course which takes you to the beach restaurants. There are some great walks into Newquay centre, the beach and Headland, and the Pentire Headland.
Would I recommend this place? Yes, yes and a million times yes. Never having been to Newquay before it is in a lovely location and I would definitely go again.
Finally, the owner Lesley is fabulous. When I emailed her during the booking process she was always quick to respond and really helpful. I have never been self catering before to a privately owned property and came here on recommendation. I think I have found a little gem :)
