Great apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be really well equipped, modern and having the balcony was a great feature. We had lovely weather for almost the whole week which obviously helped. We found the location ideal for exploring that part of the Cornish coastline

We would recommend to anyone, the owners were really friendly and available without being intrusive

Yes great place

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We received a very friendly greeting from Ivan & Veronica who showed us in and explained things. The apartment is equipped to a high standard with all you would need and was very clean and comfortable. We would have no reservations recommending it to anyone. Just be aware that it is a first floor apartment with stairs, and stairs to 2nd floor bedroom.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a good time and enjoyed our apartment. We try and make clear on the advertised information that this is a first floor apartment and within the photographs pictures of the staircase are shown. However I am sure you will agree the views are worth it. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Cornwall

Super apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday whilst staying in this lovely apartment. Ivan and Veronica have created a very comfortable, modern living space with everything you could need for your stay, including thoughtful extra touches such as milk, biscuits and fresh flowers, together with very good suggestions for local trips.

Located within easy access to different sections of the SW Coast Path and many popular tourist resorts, it proved an excellent base from which to explore this beautiful county, whilst being close to local beaches.

We loved it here, and hope to return soon. Thank you for a lovely stay.

First Class

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a weeks holiday at this apartment & would definitely recommend it. The owners Ivan & Veronica have created a lovely modern environment that is spotlessly clean & with every amenity you could wish for. The location is close to a lovely beach but if you wish to venture further afield St Ives & other resorts are within easy reach. We found it an advantage to be able to walk to the village pub which serves food & even joined in on quiz night! Everyone was very friendly. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday!

From the Owner

We fell in love with the village of Illogan years ago as it has everything you need is quite and peaceful but still within walking distance of a great beach and central to all the popular resorts such as St Ives and Falmouth. Illogan retains it charm with local business and a great local pub. The north coastal footpath is dramatic and we never tire of its stunning beauty. We built the annex some 6 years ago to be an independent unit for visiting family and friends that has been a huge success that we would now like to share more widely.

The closest beach is the stunning beach of Portreath which is a 5 minute drive or a 25 minute walk away through a beautiful wooded valley. It has a historic harbour, super cafes and great surf. The beach is life guard patrolled in the summer months and at low tide it has many rock pools to explore. Many other superb beaches that Cornwall has to offer are easily accessible from here. Cornwall's coastal footpath is close-by providing the dramatic scenery of the north coast never to be forgotten.


The apartment is just a 5 minutes drive from Cornwall's main road of the A30. Newquay is the nearest airport and Redruth the nearest train and bus station.
