                                                              We had a wonderful time in Liverpool, and the apartment was an ideal base to explore the city. All important places, the docks, the museums, music clubs, and a lot of beautiful pubs with good atmosphere are within walking distance of the apartment. the apartment itself is of a high standard, spacious, well furnished and equipped with everything you need. Peter, the owner of the apartment, is very helpful and reliable. Highly recommended! Heike & Georg from Zurich, Switzerland

                                                              We, being myself and my daughter and her family, stayed in Quarry St for 10 days in June 2015. The accommodation was great as was the location. I was brought up in Allerton and was so pleased to see that Woolton had not changed The owner, Tony ,was very helpful and we hope to stay for a longer time in Quarry St next year Would highly recommend to anyone

                                                              The view IS spectacular - the rest of the apartment is lovely too - and the owners also really nice!

                                                              I have only positive things to say about the apartment and about the wider experiences - everything was great. The apartment is spacious, modern, very well appointed, very clean and tidy - really all very nice and this is before factoring in the main selling point that is the view. I've not been strongly minded one way or another about views out of a window - but here the view has all the ingredients that mean I spent a fair amount of time while in the apartment just looking out of the window.... The owner and her mum (who I believe looks after much of the day-to-day) were both very helpful and really thoughtful. I rarely or never go back to the same place when holidaying - but if we come back to West Kirby, this apartment will be the exception to that rule.
