Spectacular harbour views, amongst the cliffs and very tranquil.
Spent a week here in early May 2023. Comfortable, clean and spacious appartment. Fantastic views and location. The cliff walks and Mullion village are literally on your doorstep.
We love it here and would return. An enchanting place to stay.
Minor downside was that, if wanting to relax late at night after all those walks and sea air, the TV doesn't work too well, plus the wifi was "buffering" a lot when we tried to stream a TV programme so we couldn't.

Stayed for work recently whilst working nearby.
Great place to stay, everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived, directions were very easy to follow.
The location is fantastic, waking up to the sound of the ocean is always great.
As we were here for work there's not really a lot else we did.

Another perfect weekend
I have stayed at Island view numerous times, this time with a couple of friends..the moment I arrive in the cove I feel relaxed. The location was new to both my friends and they fell in love with it on arrival. We stayed in Pat's Den which is my favourite with view out across the harbour to the island. Joanna as always had the apartment clean and welcoming , with everything we would need for a comfortable stay along with biscuits and milk. Such a great location for exploring the local area and beyond. We visited the neighbouring mullion cove Hotel for a spa evening, the food was beautiful and the staff so friendly and helpful. The old ship Inn in the town was a perfect place to stop for a drink after a walk and poldhu cafe for a hot chocolate. Will definately be returning.

Fantastic views and a lovely homely property.
We stayed in Fisherman's Loft apartment at Island View and it provided everything we needed for a fantastic chilled out break. It was just what we needed in view of the current worldwide situation. Time to relax, away from the craziness in a property that was warm, welcoming and had everything we needed and more - those amazing views.
Everything you need is provided and the property was extremely clean and tidy and a credit to the lovely friendly housekeeper. Access to the property was very straightforward and the parking space was great. Communications from the owner were always very friendly, helpful and prompt. She is a lovely lady to deal with.
One of the things that really struck me about this property, above any others I have ever stayed in, was how quiet it was. There are four apartments in the building and you could barely hear anything from any of the adjoining apartments. It was so lovely and quiet. As I have noisy neighbours, who are the bane of my life, this was very apparent to me and was something I was not expecting. It was so lovely and peaceful.
The location of the apartments is beautiful in a small Cornish cove. It's not far to walk up into the village which has all the amenities you might need including a mini market, small Co-op, pubs and a chemist. We arranged click and collect shopping from Helston at Sainsbury's due to the current situation and it was really efficient and worked out well. In normal times, we would try to use local businesses wherever possible and those are here for when things improve.
There are lots of fabulous coastal walks nearby for the energetic or, for the less energetic, you could just take in the view in the Cove. You also get some spectacular sunsets to take in. Island View is far from the madding crowd but there are people about and amenities near enough so that you won't feel isolated. The access roads to the property and absolutely fine too so no worries about very tight Cornish lanes so you can get to all the places nearby if you prefer to drive.
Would we book to stay here again? Of course, we have already booked a week at another time. Would we recommend to friends? Yes, we already have.
Thank you for a lovely break.

Mullion Cove and Island View - Hidden Gems
Fantastic location!, tucked away in a Cove overlooking a small harbour. This is everything that you would expect from a Cornish holiday. The apartment was clean , well presented and the sound of the waves at night meant a good nights sleep ready to explore the next day!. Good location too, the local village is just 2 minutes away with shops, pubs etc and Helston, Penzance, St Ives, Falmouth are easily reachable. Would highly recommend and the response times from both the owners and the caretakers of the apartments were brilliant. Felt very comfortable and welcomed here. Thanks again Joanna, Liz and Mark.

Island View apartments
We have just had the most wonderful week in Mullion Cove. We stayed at the lovely Island View Apartments, which had been cleaned by the very welcoming Joanna. The location next to the harbour couldn't have been any better. We woke upto a view of Mullion island every day, which was truly stunning. The apartment met all my family's needs for a perfect week. We will definitely book again.

Felt so welcome- glorious place, clean and perfect.
We visited Pat's Den on the second week of July this year. We had the most wonderful time and we can't recommend the place highly enough. From the start we felt so welcome by the lovely Joanna. She had cleaned the place beautifully. The apartment is perfect for sea lovers like ourselves, you can sit in the lounge and watch the sea's various moods. I also want to thank all the residents of Mullion Cove for their friendliness. We were worried that there may have been some who didn't want tourists - but we were so wrong- in the end we felt almost like family. So go and enjoy your break- it is a perfect spot.

Step out of Island View directly on to the harbour, beach area and direct access to the South West Coastal Path for some amazing hikes and wonderful cliff top walks leading to other stunning beaches and coves. Mullion Cove is ideal for swimming and family picnics on the small beach in front of the apartment. At low tide you can explore the rock pools and other sandy beaches by walking through a short cave. You couldn't ask for more!!! Our guests return again and again.............
