Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is an accurately described rental apartment and hard to think of anything else that could be provided. The arrival info, contact details etc are well documented and the standard of fittings throughout is excellent. The parking is secure, the space is tight largely because of the large van that shares the allocated space. However all the time we were...

Luckily we booked this property well ahead of our intended stay, as it is very popular, including repeat business. Communications with the absentee owner (Mary Lynn) were answered promptly, and a locally based housekepper was contactable if needed. The property is superbly located in a large complex at the top end of Falmouth High Street so everything in the town...
