Wonderful Apartment With Fantastic Views And Hosts
I have just returned from a fantastic week at the apartment. I choose this apartment as I lived near Fistral Beach years ago and knew the area a little, it is just nicely out of town yet two minutes walk to the beach and many coastal walks. I stayed there alone but the apartment is more than adequate for a family of five or six, the main living areas are spacious and have a very light airy feel. There is also a lovely little patio area with decked seating, even in November I sat outside listening to the sea, just perfect! The standard is very high, not only is everything in excellent condition but it is immaculate and Janet thinks of everything providing lovely little touches in the rooms. Derrick and Janet are excellent hosts, they treat you like one of their own and can't do enough for you .I was a bit nervous being on my own and not knowing where I was staying but now I don't know why! To say they were welcoming was an understatement , spending time with them makes you feel like they are your own family. They both did everything to make my life as easy as possible whilst house hunting and Derrick was happy to give me advice and chauffeur me around, they certainly took me under their wing! I'd only been there a day when they both decided that a light outside the apartment would make me feel safer in the dark , say no more Derrick was straight on the case! Nothing is a problem for them. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, the views are amazing you can sit in the lounge and just watch the beach all day, stunning ! I was very sad to leave such a beautiful relaxing place with such lovely hosts. I'd like to say a big thank you to Derrick and Janet , keep on doing what you are doing and hopefully I will be back soon.
The View....................... picture perfect
My family have been staying at Janet & Derricks for over 10 years now which says it all really. More hospitable and genuine, friendly hosts you will not find, nothing is too much trouble and we think of them more as an extension of our family now. The apartment has everything, a true home from home but better! The views are stunning and its only a short walk to either Fistral or Crantock beach as well as city centre. I love my early morning walks around the headland or across the beach, cannot wait till we are back there.
The best find ever
I found this little gem 4 years ago and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to new travellers. You get a lovely welcome from Janet and Derek who make your stay most enjoyable. The apartment description is everything it says it is and more. There have been some lovely alterations this year to make your stay even better. The gardens are beautifully maintained by Derek and Janet adds the feminine touches to the house. Its pleasant to sit in the garden and listen to the ocean below. The summer house provides all the seating you need and things if needed for the beach. The view from 2 of the bedrooms and the lounge provide stunning views of the sea right across to the Headland Hotel and Fistral beach where you can watch the surfers till late at night in the summer. Views not to be missed. The property is a short walk away from the town centre and other local beaches but far enough to be away from the madding crowds. Its the best find ever. Thanks to Janet and Derek.
Great Relaxing Break
Fantastic views from lounge, apartment was supplied with everything you could need and sparkling clean. We had a great week and although Sept/Oct break the weather was brilliant.
We were made to feel so welcome would return again and have no reservations about recommending to anyone.
Thank you to Janet&Dennis for the use of their wonderful home. With it's stunning view of fistral beach and out to sea, we have spent many hours just watching the surfers taking on the waves. A stone's throw from the beach, but only a mile to Fistral's main amenities, and the same into Newquay town although little uphill, it's location is ideal for those who like quiet evenings and no rowdy revellers at night passing the door. Would love to keep this a secret but I was bursting at the seams to tell friends. Oh and I nearly forgot... Thanks for all those little extras in the apartment, the things that were there when we arrived that made it more like home. Soaps, tissues, cotton wool balls...better than big hotels...they don't leave those in their rooms. We really would like to stay, and have already looked at next year's availability...sure we will be back....that is if there's rooms after everyone else who read this has booked. Once again thank you again for your generous nature, the extras and you welcoming smile.
