We booked this apartment through Airbnb as a replacement for our original booking. How we wished we hadn’t! The apartment was not the clean, light, modern apartment close to the beach we envisaged. The apartment whilst serviceable is in an old, tired residential block next to a derelict building. The entrance and communal areas are dirty and in need of some urgent upkeep. There was a sea glimpse not a sea view, and the pictures in the advert bear little resemblance to the reality. The apartment itself had all amenities but again was tired, the bedroom radiator coming apart, the bedroom window blown, the balcony was green with one chair for a family of four, the leather sofas were old and peeling. We complained to the owner who called us liars and hard to please - we are a normal family who expected more for the price we paid! There were some gorgeous apartments on Porth Beach itself for a similar price, we suggest you do more research than we did and learn from someone else’s mistake.
Great location for all things Cornwall and absolutely stunning beaches all around. I've been to Cornwall a few times and some places seemed quite a trek but this was a great starting point everyday with all the sites such as Eden, Heligan, Lands End, Tintagel, Padstow, St.Ives, an hour or less away. Quick walk to Newquay for evening meals out and an even quicker walk to the beach just down the road. Apartment was very clean and everything worked just as you would hope. No noise from any neighbours. All in all a great holiday apartment and Jane the owner was the best ever at communication and information. Highly recommended.
Great place in Newquay. 2 minutes walk to beach and 15 minutes walk to the town center. Travelled with two kids and they loved getting down to the beach so easily. Public transport nearby and car parking space included.
great location,view,flat very good.went to padstow,st ives,charlestown,st michaes mount,bedruthean steps,newquay..had a great stay.i would highly recommed.
The location was great, neighbourhood was nice and quiet. Jane was very helpful with our stay. Would definitely recommend.
The apartment was very clean and well maintained. The beach is very close and easy to reach. The lady who looks after the apartment was very helpful and there were some nice touches like leaving milk in the fridge and scones with jam and cream for the family.
The only downside was the lack of wireless as we had very poor signal on our phones. But that aside the apartment was very high quality.
