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 !

The apartment was perfect for us, perfect location as well as being tastefully decorated with all the mod cons. We were able to walk into Mevagissey for lunch/dinner and there is a small bay just at the end of the road so we would wander down each morning and evening to admire the view. The location is great to explore further afield in Cornwall too. I can't rate this place highly enough, it's been renovated to a very high standard. Can't wait to return in the near future. So glad we chose this apartment.
