The location next to the beach is ideal for our small grandchildren. Having 2 lounges is ideal for younger and older family members. The house is comfortable and furnished beautifully. The warm outside shower is perfect for the young ones returning from the beach. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the cleaners did an excellent job in the middle of our stay. We had a couple of maintenance issues on both of our stays. Last year the loft bathroom toilet flush was not working properly, the washing machine broke down and had to be replaced, and the septic tank had to be emptied during our stay...not a pleasant experience! This year there were continuing problems with the downstairs toilet flush, which despite a visit from the plumber remained an issue throughout our stay. However, these issues would not deter us from returning to Atlantic House. Overall a lovely holiday was had by all.

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.
