The Saltings is a newly refurbished, luxury penthouse apartment beautifully positioned right on the West Quay encapsulating views of the inner and outer harbours of picturesque Mevagissey. From the front of the apartment (including the lounge/dining room and kitchen), the views are exceptional - whether it be watching the local fishermen unloading the day's catch or one of the regular yachts sailing by on the horizon, there is always something happening. Whilst the accommodation is self-catering, Mevagissey is lucky enough to have a wide range of restaurants, all of which are within a short walk, and therefore you have the option to choose where you eat each evening, depending on how you feel. Equally, if you fancy cooking something special up for yourself, you could just walk the 30 yards or so to the local fishmongers which is Quay side and directly opposite the apartment. Outside there is one allocated parking space (has a restricted height of just over 6ft.) and a communal patio/garden area.

Beautiful location- cleanliness was disappointing
The property is in a lovely picturesque location, perfect for any type of holiday.
The saltings is a nice apartment although in my eyes it is not classed as luxury- the overall cleanliness and presentation of the property was not as it looked in the pictures , old bobbly faded ripped blankets covering the dog hair ridden dirty sofas, dog hairs all over the bedding and cushions.
Door handles hanging off, kitchen table stools over half of then are broken and coming apart.
The shower door is broken.
The floors were dirty and proof that a dog had been there.
I have messaged the owner and am awaiting her response.
All items Need the owner to address before another stay is booked in the apartment .
We are very sorry to read this review and to only receive notification of any issues on your day of departure, leaving us no real opportunity to discuss/address anything with you. Now that we are aware, we have immediately addressed the points you raised and are pleased to see that the guests who subsequently stayed in in our luxury penthouse apartment, have given us the normal 5 star review. We hope you get the chance to visit one of our properties again as we feel sure that you will really enjoy your stay.
A star location
This is a lovely 2 bed apartment which is in a fantastic location with everything you would need. Comfortable and clean. The harbour view is wonderful. Pubs, shops & restaurants all within a 2 min walk (even less!). And a lovely central area from which to explore..... Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this star apartment.
Stunning location for enjoying harbour life and relaxing.
Clean and nicely furnished with a parking space, which is a real bonus in Mevagissey. Great base for a seaside family holiday.
I wanted a chillout somewhere by the sea, on my own, and I could not have picked anywhere better, at this time of the year it was so quiet, peaceful and enchanting. The apartment views were priceless, from watching the boats come in right under my nose, to the view of the sea from the sofa, bliss.
It had everything I needed, comfy bed, warmth, totally functional kitchen.
Just wished it had been longer than a week, I could have stayed forever.
I. Will definate,y book again and recommend to friends.
A amazing place.
Thank you x
