What really makes this apartment though are the extra touches put in to make sure everything is perfect for the stay.The instructions and directions given were comprehensive so all your usual initial concerns about arriving at a new place are answered.The wi-fi is great and easy to access. There's a TV in each room and all necessary domestic appliances in the kitchen. Even a separate freezer with ice cubes ready to go ! What really capped it off though was the hamper of food waiting for us and some basic toiletries. Just what we needed and the perfect touches that can make staying in a place just that little bit special.This apartment is certainly one up from the norm.

The owners Julia and David were such a lovely couple and we would highly recommend their property. Had a fab holiday in a beautiful seaside village which was only a short drive to the most popular attractions like eden and heligan gardens. We sat on the harbour edge the morning we had to leave and wished we could have stayed longer !
