Why Rob or Alison Higgins chose Newquay

My wife Alison and I rented this property in 2012 with our teenage son and two of his friends and had a wonderful relaxing holiday here.

We had been looking for a holiday home for several years and could not quite frind the right property that ticked all the boxes we wanted. Great location and views, plenty to do from surfing, sailing, golfing, walking or just relaxing. We are close enough to Newquay to benefit from the facilities when we require them but positioned in the quiet part of Newquay with our own car parking space. Everything is in walking distance and we can enjoy the great restaurants and beaches etc throughout Cornwall using Newquay as a base. We use this property ourselves and the standard of furnishings and fixtures reflect the standards we would expect to see in a property such as Pentowan. We have relaxing weekends with friends enjoying the wonderful beaches and sea, great restaurants and fantastic views and walks. There is plenty to keep the children active from surfing to exploring the beaches.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, car parking and unsurpassed views. Great surfing beaches or safe 'bucket and spade beaches' and Golf course within walking distance. Great restaurants in the region.or just look out of the windows at the views. Explore Cornwall - Eden Project, fantastic scenery traditional Cornish fishing towns and wonderful bays and beaches. Plenty of water sports,Golf or relaxing walks and nature trails.

What a view !

  • 5 of 5

There are many occasions in life when things don't quite live up to expectations.

We had high expectations of this apartment due to the photographs we saw online when we booked. I am happy to say this property exceeded ALL our expectations and is quite simply fabulous.

On arrival we were met by Bill who was our welcoming committee and key holder. He took us up to the penthouse and spent time explaining how everything worked and gave us useful information about the area, a nicer guy you couldn't wish to meet.

On walking into the apartment the first thing that hits you is the view and wow what a view it is. If you remember one thing make sure it is your binoculars, I can asure you the TV is not needed.

The apartment is really funky and the decor very modern, it was right up our street and instantly made us feel at home. The really clever part is the floor to ceiling windows which not only make the apartment really light and airy but obviously gives you access to the stunning views without getting up off the sofa.

We took our two children, Josh (6) and Freddie (18 mths) and they could not have been happier. It is very child friendly with an Xbox and TV to keep them entertained.

I really can't think of a negative about this place and we have already booked to go back and we can't wait!!

Perfect location for a holiday with no car!

  • 4 of 5

We travelled to Newquay deciding not to rent a car this trip! This flat was in a perfect location with easy access to shops, restaurants and had a fantastic view over the harbor and beach! We enjoyed watching the many surfers and gig boats over the weekend. Instead of a car rental we hired Tour Cornwall to take us around the area, a great decision, with guide Tim being top notch! The flat itself is comfortable and set up with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a great sitting room with fantastic views, a small game area and full kitchen. We were met with a gift tray of wine, some tea and biscuits, very welcome after the three sets of stairs to get there! Need I say we felt healthier after our weeks holiday and those stairs! Sadly, the promise of a washer and dryer did not deliver as the dryer portion of the machine did not work. Upon calling the caretaker to request help we were told the dryer hadn't worked in "quite a while" and no repair man came to fix it during our stay. We always book rentals with washer and dryer on our travels as we always fly with only carry on bags, washing several during our stay. Anyway, with a creative imagination we made do. There were several other maintenance issues we addressed in the onsite guest comment book we hope the caretakers paid attention to after we left. Otherwise, a great location, we had a wonderful holiday and would come back ( Would have offered five stars if washer/dryer worked properly)
