ROMANTIC LUXURY APARTMENT WITH STUNNING SEA VIEW IN MOUSEHOLE, WIFI, NESPRESSO!

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Mousehole - Island Watch

Balcony overlooking Mousehole Island, 1 bedroom, parking

Island Watch is a small but beautiful, purpose built apartment set on two levels including a balcony with stunning views of Mount's Bay and St Clement's Island.

Climb the simple wooden steps to your own entrance leading onto the first floor. Here you'll find the lounge with kitchenette and French doors to the sheltered balcony. Here, flanked by palm trees you can sip fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine and watch the wildlife in the sea and on the Island. The balcony is sheltered and quite a suntrap. The small wc and shower are also on this level.

Upstairs to the bedroom under the eaves. Here there's a very comfortable kingsized bed with good mattress (we renew regularly) and good quality cotton linen. there's also a small sofa, a selection of books and storage space for your clothes. From the skylight you can see the Island again and if you leave it open, fall asleep listening to the sound of the water lapping on the shore some 50m away.

The flat is equipped with: TV, DVD player, Ipod dock and radio, Wifi, microwave/small oven, two plate induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment, Nespresso coffee machine, tea, coffee.

We live next door to the apartment and are happy to welcome you and leave you to yourselves or be on hand for any questions you may have or tips you need during your stay. If we are on holiday ourselves, my mother lives nearby and is on hand for any needs you have.

The house is neighboured by the gardens of the Old Coastguard Hotel, a boutique hotel with 13 rooms and a very fine restaurant. This is a quiet establishment and a lovely place to dine - but do book. If you google its website, you can also gain a greater sense of the position.

About Marina Wright

We fell in love with this seaside position and its ever changing vista and wanted to share it with others. Our intention is to provide a romantic haven where others can unwind, connect and absorb all the wonderful things that this beautiful spot has to offer.

Why Marina Wright chose Mousehole

We just love to watch the sea and its creatures feathered and finned. For this you need to be close and 50 metres is just about perfect! We also love to watch the sailing and fishing boats passing by or on occasion the drama of the lifeboat as it races past to an emergency.

Urlaub, wie man ihn sich erträumt!

  • 5 out of 5
Die vorangegangenen E-Mail Kontakte ließen es im Vorfeld bereits vermuten: Dank der lieben Gastfamilie- bestehend aus Mama Esme, Papa Rob und 2 amüsanten Jungs- fühlte man sich ab der ersten Minute willkommen und gut aufgehoben!
Der atemberaubende Blick auf das Meer direkt bei Betreten des liebevoll gestalteten Appartements und ein, von Esme frisch gebackenes Brot, ließen erahnen,
wie schön der Urlaub werden würde...
Diese Erwartung wurde in keinster Weise enttäuscht!
Das Appartement ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht-
viel zu viele Dinge hatten wir überflüssigerweise von daheim mitgebracht.
Samstags kam eine Reinigungskraft und wechselte zudem Handtücher und Bettwäsche.
Die Familie war stets für Tipps und Ratschläge bereit-
Esme verwöhnte uns zusätzlich mit ihrem fantastischen "Cornish Cream Tea".
Was soll man noch sagen: beim Abschied kullerten jedenfalls einige Tränchen.... ?
Gerne kehren wir sehr bald in dieses Idyll zurück!!!

Rest and relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
Arrived in dull damp weather to be met with a lovely welcoming apartment. Fresh red roses in each room, milk, coffee and a fruit loaf for our arrival, lovely personal touches. Views from the apartment stunning. Mousehole is still as lovely as I remember when I stayed there as a child. You cannot help but fall in love with this place. All you can do is chill, relax and enjoy. Thanks Rob and Esme for making us feel so at home and for making us aware of the pod of dolphins in the bay. If you want to slow down the pace this is the place to go. Lots of places to visit if that's what you want or places to relax, loved the local pub The Ship, always a cheery welcome. Do try the pear rattler, its lovely. Thanks again, hope to return soon.

Lovely getaway in March

  • 5 out of 5
We were really pleased we had chosen Mousehole and island watch. The apartment has everything you need , and more. There were fresh flowers homemade fruit bread coffee tea sugar etc towels, umbrella, loo roll, local paper, guides, books , heater and lots of thoughtful touches.
I choose this as we don't smoke and Phil is allergic to dogs also the previous reviewer said it was clean , it was. So I felt I could relax. If it is a totally romantic holiday you want be aware it is linked to the family home so you can hear them sometimes, so it may not be exactly the right place for romance.
The place was great we ate out a lot at The Old Coastguard, 2 Fore Street and all meals were good. The Ship Inn is a good pub too. When we did eat in we went to Hole Foods Deli which was lovely and does great hot choc. We visited the Eden project about an hour away, St Ives and local walks as well as seeing the seals at the bottom of where your view is , they were so close to the shore.
It was wet and windy but on the up side it wasn't to busy the apartment is cosy and has a great view. It was a great break and excellent value, even out season there is plenty on offer.
Top tips
Take off your watch
Turn off your phone
Eat out or deli in
You are never too old to rock pool
Bed in your walking boots
Eat seafood
Be glad the wifi is patchy it means you are not tempted to work
Sunday papers & red wine in The Old coastguard.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed it so much. We've passed on your cafe/resto praise to the owners - it's such a boost for them to hear. Very sorry wifi was patchy for you - we've just two weeks ago had BT Infinity installed (finally it reached Mousehole!) and recent guests report it's working perfectly. It's unusual to hear anything from the main house as we have two soundproof doors so I'm wondering if one was left open our side by mistake - we'll watch out for that. Thank you again for your kind comments and tips for future guests.

The Perfect Hideaway!!

  • 5 out of 5
Just had to say Thank You to Rob, Esme, Pax and Kes for a wonderful break in Island Watch! The weather slowly improved as the week went on but your lovely apartment made up for it.This was our first holiday this year and will be our last before we get married in May so was extra special - The highlight was when Pax and Kes sang Happy Birthday to Jennie and brought up your homemade cake and a birthday candle...truly scrummy and heartwarming!We are both back at work now in bustling London and missing the soothing sounds of the sea and the amazing warmth of the people of Mousehole!! Will definitley recommend your Perfect Hideaway-Love Jennie and Matthew xXx

A completely new luxury split level apartment with direct views of Mousehole Island (St Clements). Sip Nespresso on the balcony and watch seabirds, seals and sometimes dolphins from the living room and balcony! You can then walk 3-5 minutes to the fine restaurants, cafes and galleries of 500 year old Mousehole and the sandy beaches of the small harbour, where you can swim. By car or bus, you can discover the Minack theatre, many other beaches, St Ives, St Michael's Mount etc all 3-10 miles away. On foot from the apartment you have the famous cliff paths, all the way to Land's End and beyond. We live next door and are happy to leave you entirely alone or give you tips. For relaxation we can book a wonderful mobile masseuse at £40-50 for 60-90 mins

'Nespresso coffee on the balcony and this amazing seascape, changing every day - all that we needed for rest and recuperation!' Jo and Jez, May 2011

Shops, transport, distances: Mousehole is 3 miles from Penzance and 1.5 miles from the fishing village of Penzance. You can walk to Newlyn along the coastal path in 30 minutes and Penzance in an hour. Bikes can be hired in Pz.

In Newlyn you'll find a small supermarket, fresh fish shops - minutes from the trawlers, 2 bakers, a butchers, cafes etc.

In Penzance, 10 minutes by car from Mousehole you've all the shops, cinema etc you'd expect in a town of 20,000.

You don't necessarily need a car in Mousehole since the bus runs every 30 minutes to Penzance and from there you can connect with buses or trains to all the other places you might want to visit.

Mousehole has 4 restaurants, 3 cafes, 2 ice cream shops, a fish and chip shop, the pub The Ship, a grocery shop with fresh bread, numerous galleries and all the charm of the storybooks.
