Beautifully located apartment with amazing views over the Falmouth beach area

5 of 5
Well decorated and furnished with all utilities we required. Great thought into the decor while providing extremely comfortable living. Lift from car park area was much appreciated. Not far to walk to main marina area and therefore lots of pubs and restaurants to choose from. An excellent property which we can highly recommend and would definitely return to.
