It's the Thought that Counts.....

5 of 5
This is a beautifully positioned apartment just yards from Mevagissey harbour.Once in, it's hard not to be immersed in the life of this busy fishing village.There's plenty of good eating and drinking to be had nearby of all different types from the local chip shop to the more up-market fish restaurant. 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 annexe was exactly as pictured and had everything in you could need. 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 !
