“Beautiful Apartment with Spectacular Sea Views.”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is an excellent, spacious & beautifully appointed 4 bed/4 bathroom apartment with spectacular sea views. It easily sleeps 8 people and would not be too crowded for 10 close friends. (4 bedrooms sleeping 8 with 2 fold up beds stored in the main bedroom cupboard). There were plenty of glasses and plates etc along with a huge dining table and really comfortable dining chairs which seat the full compliment of guests. We were travelling with my 90 year old mother, so we will also comment on the accessibility aspects.

Unfortunately because of the unseasonal weather we were unable to take advantage of the superb balcony and the outdoor furniture.

Kitchen:

The Krups coffee maker was well used as was the wine fridge. The wine fridge needed to be switched on and it took a bit of trial and error but there are control buttons inside the door which control on / off and temperature. There were plenty of quality mugs, plates & bowls. The saucepans by Prestige were excellent & plentiful although the lack of a casserole dish and associated serving dishes was annoying. There were plenty of chopping boards and quality knives for the chef.

Bedrooms: Plenty of storage & hangars in the built in wardrobes in bedrooms 2, 3 & 4. Bedroom 1, the master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe with ample storage & hangers. Lovely views from all bedrooms.

The super king sized beds were extremely comfortable. These can be converted into singles if required. Bed linen & pillows were very good.

There was insufficient space around the bed in the 3rd bedroom (with the walk in shower) for a wheelchair to go. Worth noting that if only one person was using the room, the bed could be pushed against the wall having removed the bedside table thus making more room for a wheelchair.

Bathrooms: None of the 4 bathrooms had safety rails or safety mats. All had thermastic showers. The 3 bathrooms with full bath tubs had a large rain shower over the bath and a detachable wand for hair washing. The 3 baths did not have hand grips.

The walk in shower had an acceptable 3 inch lip to the shower tray. This bathroom did not have a detachable wand but only the large overhead rain shower. This was the smallest bathroom & manoeuvring a wheelchair would be difficult especially with the close promoxity of the heated towel rail

Strangely for a 5* property, there was no soap or shampoo in the baths or showers although each sink area had a bottle of quality liquid hand wash. So perhaps bring your own soap/shower gel & shampoo.

A washer & combined dryer was available but we did not use this facility. Small clothes airier, ironing board & iron also available.

Miscellaneous:

Please note that most car parks in Cornwall do not offer concessions to Blue Badge holders. Don’t forget to pay otherwise you will get a parking ticket.

The Fistral Beach car park does not have any wide disabled bays. On entry through the gate a camera apparently takes your registration number & again on the way out. This is not very clear and there are the usual ticket machines once in the car park; we found the system unusual and confusing. On a subsequent visit, a local told us that the company running the Car Park are well know for catching motorists out (see * below) and even though we paid and only stayed for one hour, we are now waiting for that letter to say we have a fine because we spent some time inside the car park figuring out how to use the machines. What a way to welcome visitors to Fistral!

(See* http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4006275)

Don’t forget to pack your binoculars as the apartment overlooks Fistral Beach & watching the surfers and the fishing boats is a must. It is an easy walk downhill to Fistral Beach from the apartment but its uphill all the way back!

On arrival you may enter the garage to unload through double doors straight into the lift. Between these 2 sets of double doors there is a 1 inch step which could catch the less able out. The lift has a key entry which allows the lift to travel directly into apartment 8 which is a wonderful facility. Parents/Grand parents - The key is not needed to travel down from the apartment, so if you have toddlers with you, take care as they might be fascinated by the lift call button.

The 2 designated parking bays at the rear of the property are suitable for the less able to enter the main side entry area. There is a gentle slope from the parking bays to a ramp which goes to the door.

This apartment is superb for 2 families to share, or groups & extended families and is highly recommended.

David the owner was extremely helpful & realizing that our Mum could not use the shower came with a shower stool thus making showering much safer. He also came with a large cooking pan that was needed for our dinner party.

“AMAZING!!”
Reviewed May 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just stayed at Rocket for mine and a friends 30th. WOW! What a stunning place?! Rooms are all huge, facilities are fantastic and the views are out of this world! Anyone booking here better look after it as we can't wait to return! Pure luxury! Thanks to Cathy and Dave for letting us stay here. We wouldn't have enjoyed our break half as much if we hadn't had Rocket to chill in and enjoy the amazing location.

“Absolutely stunning!”
Reviewed April 5, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed in this apartment with family during the Easter holidays. The apartment is stunning and furnished with quality accessories. The lift directly into the apartment, and the downstairs store room and shower are great for returning home after a day in the sea! We couldnt recommend this apartment enough and will be staying again at the nearest opportunity! Plenty of living space, loads of bathrooms, unbeatable 360 degree sea views, 2 min walk to Fistral, a 3D TV with netflix, and a Ps4 for the kids, what more could you want? Amazing!

“What An Amazing Place!!”

We stayed here with our family while we were on holiday from Australia. I have to say that the place is stunning with fantastic views from every window in this beautiful circular penthouse.
The apartment is furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard and it was a pleasure to cook at home, have a night in and enjoy the apartment rather than eat out.
Even with 10 of us staying at the apartment it never seemed crowded and we all agreed it was a fantastic place and would all love to stay there again.
I would definitely recommend this apartment and will hopefully stay here again !!

“Stunning penthouse apartment with majestic views”
Reviewed January 20, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at the Rocket for five nights over Christmas (8 adults). We were blown away as soon as we arrived by the floor to ceiling glass giving amazing views from all sides of the apartment . The apartment is bigger than the pictures portray and the open plan living made for a fabulous space for celebrating Christmas together. The layout is perfect with lovely well equipped bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms. There is a large wine fridge not mentioned which meant we had a constant supply of chilled wine ! The owners were lovely and booking was stress free. We would highly recommend the Rocket and hope to stay there again - thank you, we had a great Christmas.
