About the property

3 bedroom , 2 bathroom apartment overlooking Fistral beach

If having spectacular views isn't important to you then read no further! This three bedroom flat is absolutely luxurious but that's not the main attraction. The outstanding features of this apartment are the spectacular views of Fistral beach ( from front balcony) , the Gannel Estuary and Crantock Beach (from back balcony) and Newquay town (from side balcony). So this puts luxuries like wine fridge, surround sound system, 52 inch smart TV, and deluxe double sink and walk in shower ensuite easily in second place. Everyone who comes in for the first time spends ages just staring out the window at the view!

This penthouse apartment is the best on the block and we believe has the finest views in Newquay ! Our 3 sided balcony has the sun all day , watch the sun go down in the evening from the front .We are lucky to have 3 large double rooms , 2 doubles , 1 twin. There is an ensuite to the main room and a large family bathroom . We have a large surf store for bikes and surf stuff. Allocated parking . Surround sound system , 52" plasma TV in large open plan lounge /kitchen /diner. Wii sports, DVDs , library. Walk to Fistral beach , Crantock, coastal paths. Forget the surf cams just wake up and look out the window to judge for yourself when you take a dip !

About Emma Shelton

Emma is a busy mum and business owner . Buying this flat overlooking the sea was an ambition from the age of 11 when she went on family holidays to St. Ives . She is married to Ali and they live in Somerset .

Emma Shelton purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Emma Shelton chose Newquay & St Austell area

Everyone who comes into this apartment goes straight to the window in the lounge and stares .... you are almost floating above the ocean . All there is in front of you is the expanse of the Atlantic . On a clear day you can see Trevose Head , and the lighthouse . Round the bay is Watergate Bay with Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant. Only 8 miles to Padstow and Rock for Rick Stein . As soon as we come here for the weekend we start to relax and the view outside is like therapy . The ever changing sky and the tide provide a perfect backdrop to the comfortable apartment. We love to walk to Crantock village and even further on the coastal path. We can walk to the iconic Headland Hotel and have a sundowner. Our local is the Lewinnick jutting out on the Pentire Headland with excellent bar and food.

What makes this apartment unique

You can follow the sun all day , start on the front balcony on the morning , move the side for lunch and finish off with the sunset overlooking the ocean .

Go back to the side with a beer and watch the lights go on in town as you tower above .

I don't think there can be a finer holiday property in Newquay.

  • 5 of 5

First time in Cornwall in twenty six years. Holiday property was more than we really expected. I wish we could have packed the view in our case to bring back home with us. The penthouse is very well positioned and furnished. We were not disappointed with anything. Our grandchildren (10yrs:8yrs:5yrs) absolutely loved it. So much room for them. Its' closeness to the beach was great for the grandchildren, although a little steep for grandparents (old age creeping up). We would definitely like to return to this property for a future holiday.

Great location. Very easy walk to beach.

  • 3 of 5

WRONG code to access the key was given by owner. Thankfully I had asked for the cleaners number before the vacation and they were able to provide the correct code. Internally the apartment was clean with very nice looking and clean bathrooms. However the glass doors to the front balcony of the apartment had not been included in the clean. The amazing view of the beach could not be enjoyed at all because of the amount of seagull poop on the glass doors and it made the living room feel dirty. Once I had cleaned the glass doors I could then enjoy the view and the living room took on a different feel.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Following a difficult year with illness we decided to stay for a week from boxing day for a week to see in the new year. The description is exact with views to die for given that my father was in a wheelchair we chose this property specifically for its views over fistrel beach and the need for a large open plan living area and a en-suite bathroom with walk in shower to cover his showering needs. I had contacted the owner prior to arrival asking numerous questions in relation to his needs etc and Emma was outstanding, she even supplied a shower seat and other disability needs. We arrived in the afternoon of boxing day and entry was quick and easy. The apartment easily sleeps 6 which suited us. The more able of us walked everyday from the apartment down a steep slope or more easily via the road way to fistrel beach and the headland towards the award winning Rick steins. The apartment was clean, fresh bed linen, towels, fully equipped with everything you would need for a stay. The kitchen/lounge diner is fabulous with enough room to cook, chat, eat at the dining area with fabulous views. The penthouse view is well worth the extra. My elderly parents loved their stay as did the younger ones of us. I would definitely recommend this property and cannot thank Emma enough for her help and considerations, and thankfully everything turned out well in the end. We did however leave a day early to ensure we didn't get stuck in bank holiday traffic but would dearly have loved to have had that last and final night. Thank you for a great stay.

Amazing views from spacious light apartment

  • 4 of 5

Amazing views from this lovely well equipped apartment. Being by Fistral beach was a real bonus as it was the best place for bodyboarding.

Amazing location and apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment really is something special.

The living room area looking out over Fistral beach is just amazing. The building is solidly built so we didn't hear anything from the other apartments. Couldn't even hear the lift going up and down. Also there aren't any bars nearby so there is no music booming from outside.

The place is well stocked with books / DVD's / games / toys so even if the weather is bad there is something to keep you occupied.

The kitchen has easy to use appliances, with home essentials like dishwasher, washer dryer and microwave. The fridge and freezer both were good size to take a week's food.

The bedrooms are good sized and all have balconies with great views. Big wardrobes but bring / buy coat hangers.

As to location there aren't really any shops in walking distance but The Sainsburys is only a short drive if you need supplies. You can walk to the beach at South Fistral easily enough, (its a steep walk back though) and if the tide is right, walk south to Crantock Beach. And you can check both out from the balcony to see what the surf is doing.

We went with a toddler and limited mobility grand parent and found the place friendly and accessible for both.

The outdoor shed is quite secure with a good space for a few bikes and surfboards. Plus there is an outside shower in the car park to rinse off sand, very useful.

We had a really great time, the views were awesome and the apartment was really well decorated and stocked.

Would recommend staying here again, or buying it as a second home if I had the money!

Luxury appartment, all mod cons & view to die for.

  • 5 of 5

Here is a real treat for all with what must be one of the best views in Newquay thrown in! The penthouse is beautifully presented and is spacious, light and airy. It is impeccably furnished and kitted out with all mod cons - wine fridge, cinema surround sound, top of the range coffee machine etc. We have stayed on 3 occasions now and still feel a renewed sense of excitement every time we return. Our 14 year old and his friends - not normally easily impressed - absolutely love it! We cannot recommend highly enough.
