“Exceptionally well furbished and well located apartment”

The owners have obviously invested a lot of time and money in making this a very comfortable and well presented apartment. The views inside and out are wonderful.
Top marks for describing the apartment as it is (well presented etc) and isn't (no parking, up a very steep hill etc).
Would definitely recommend once you've fully read the description.

“A wonderful place, with views that take your breath away”

The location is great, just a short walk from lovely restaurants and the beach. It's up a little lane, short, but steep. When you walk inside you are rewarded by a beautiful apartment, well-thought out in every way. Modern, clean lines, with character. Cute window seats create frames of the sea view that they look out towards. Everything was perfect for the 4 adults in our group especially with the 2 bathrooms. We all loved it, it exceeded expectations. Breakfast at Daisys is so close there's no need to cook, but we especially loved having a glass of wine on the sofa, soaking up the view, before wondering down the lane for dinner.

“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed June 6, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our dream appartment! Beautiful furniture, well equipped and very clean .Our daughter loved the toys left in the appartment. Stunning view and excellent located. Few minutes walk away from the centre and the beach. Looe is a beautiful place to stay and is a perfect base for visit small villages along the coast.
Everything you could wish for!

“Stunning flat with ocean views that will take your breath away”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We could not recommend this flat more. It is fully upgraded with all the modern amenities you could need (we did a lot of cooking!), beautifully presented, comfortable beds and really nice bathrooms. The flat has full sea and town views that are unlike anything we had seen before (felt like something out of a movie!), often we would come home and sit with a glass of wine and just enjoy the sunset! The location is perfect, go up a little further and you have benches with full 360 view (Favourite to take coffee in the morning), and a coastal walk. You are also only 3 min walk from the town, beach, harbour and anything you could need. Stella was gracious and easily contacted with fantastic recommendations on restaurants and cafes! It was honestly a dream holiday home and can't wait to come back some day!

“An amazing property in a perfect location within a stones throw of Looe town centre and the beach”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Gwendrock Twyr is a perfect base for staying in Looe. It is located literally a minutes walk from the main street, and the beach can also be accessed within a couple of minutes walk down the steps located just up from the property.
The apartment is furnished to a very high standard and a contemporary style. The open plan layout of the lounge and kitchen is great for ensuring you spend maximum time with your family. The views from both the lounge and the master bedroom are amazing and sitting with the doors open makes you feel like you are on the beach!!!
The only downside that I would mention is the lack of a parking space for the property. However, due to its location this is understandable and the need to park just outside the main town is outweighed by the premium location that this apartment offers. We parked our car on the Mill Pool long stay car park for £38.50 for 1 week (very reasonable price) which is located about 10/15 mins walk along the high street out of Looe. This didn't pose any problems to us on the basis that the weather we had was out of this world and didn't need to use the car the entire time we were there.
Looe has plenty of great places to eat. The Smugglers Cott is great for a Sunday carvery. The Golden Guinea offers great pub food and Cafe Rendezvous a great Full English Breakfast. Best of all, you can get some great fish and chips from Catch located just down the alley opposite the Ship Inn.
All in all Looe is a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend Gwendrock as a place to base yourself as it has everything to offer and more!!!
I would also like to thank Stella for her excellent communication all the way through the booking process and also for allowing us to stay on all day on our day of departure so that we did not need to rush off in the morning, as there were no guests arriving on this day.
