About Emer Glynn

We bought the apartment new five years ago and for the first couple of years only used it ourselves and for family members. For the past three years we have let it for part of the year, but we still love to stay ourselves and are always finding new things to enjoy.

We have left some personal belongings around and hope that these will be useful for you. For example, you will find a selection of DVDs, and paperback books. Please feel free to enjoy them. We have also left some boardgames and children's toys and hope you enjoy these.

We are always pleased to receive suggestions as to how we can improve the facilities, so please let us know what you think.

Emer Glynn purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Emer Glynn chose Newquay & St Austell area

We love the rugged coastline, and the huge waves that make Fistral such a good surfing beach. We like the quietness of this end of Newquay (Pentire) but also love being so near the town centre. We love cooking the wonderful fresh lobster and crabs that we are able to buy from the local seafood suppliers.

We enjoy the apartment at all times of the year- the winter months are blustery and the wind is wild and so fresh. We love walking either along the cliff tops or across the many beautiful beaches from Crantock to Watergate Bay. A particular bonus is being able to hear and see the waves whilst being inside and cozy during the winter months.

We are keen body boarders ( haven't mastered the surfboard) and with our winter weight wetsuits are in the sea all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is unusual in being so close to the sea- you can hear the sounds of the waves as you fall asleep and as you wake up. The light in the apartment is wonderful- with nothing between us and the waves and the horizon.

If you like fishing, we are two minutes away from rocks where mackerel and other fish can be caught.

We love being able to walk outside and immediately be on the South West Coastal path, or on the beach. The rock pools just across from the apartment are great for kids to splash about in, and we go mussell- picking and cook them with cream, wine and garlic- delicious.

We cook a lot, so the kitchen is very well stocked with all the equipment you will need to make delicious meals. We leave basic condiments for guests to use- whatever is there you are welcome to!

Fabulous apartment, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit therefore we knew what to expect, and it didn't disappoint, the apartment was lovely and clean with all home comforts to make your stay perfect. Emer is very attentive and helpful for any queries.

I couldn't imagine a more perfect spot to visit Cornwall, you can take lovely walks across the headland or just while away your time watching the wonderful views of the sea, there is always something to spot from the surfers to the dolphins passing through the bay. My husband is a keen photographer and over the fortnight he wasn't short of subjects - we have beautiful pictures of the sunset over the bay on our bedroom wall at home.

Plenty of lovely places to eat within walking distance, or drive out to places such as St Ives, The Eden Project, The lost gardens, Padstow all well worth a visit.

I very much hope we get to visit again next year.

5 Star with Perfect views

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find such a perfect place and with perfect weather. It was a dream come true to be in such a modern and tastefully decorated apartment where we could wake up to the sound of the sea. The towels and toiletries, bottle of prosecco, biscuits and chocolates were an added bonus. We loved exploring the headlands without having to get in the car and the swimming was great (although only in wet-suits in April) and we were happy to use the body board and wind-breaker, thank you. There were plenty of restaurants nearby, but we chose to eat in and enjoy the view from the apartment. When we did explore up the coast we discovered Bedruthan Steps, but we almost didn't want to leave the beautiful beach on our doorstep.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome and for providing a well-needed escape. We would love to return.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully stylish and the location could not be better. The view of the massive waves crashing to the shore whilst sitting in the lounge are unforgettable. The apartment is modern and has every luxury that you might want for your time away. Emer is incredibly attentive and responds to any query really quickly. This meant that all of our questions were answered so we could concentrate on relaxing and enjoying our stay.

Fantastic apartmentt , great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Newquay- the apartment had amazing views of fistral beach (definitely the wow factor as described) which was a few steps away and most days we would start our day with a walk across fistral beach . The apartment was clean , well equipped and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in ! The owner Emer was really helpful and supportive and responded straight away to any questions - such as where was the nearest corner shop to get milk - Emer answered within minutes !

A bottle of sparkly and chocolates with biscuits awaited us along with a greeting card from Emer wishing us a good holiday and included her contact numbers - very thoughtful . For us this welcome would have been even better with a pint of milk for a much needed cuppa after the journey.

We didn't however have to go buying washing up stuff, hand wash, tea coffee sugar because it was all there ! We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a stay in Newquay in a modern spacious well equipped , well maintained and clean apartment with great views , easy access to the beach and only a short walk into town - and just to add the DVD player does play blu ray.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this excellent review. We are glad that you found us easy to contact- we think that one of the benefits of renting from an owner rather than from a big travel company, should be that it is easy to get in touch knowing that the response will be quick and personal. Also glad that you found the apartment well equipped and clean. We often go away for a break and cleanliness is very important to us, also a comfy bed- essential! We will definitely take note of your comment about providing milk on arrival. We know that sometimes guests arrive late in the evening after a long journey and being able to make a cup of tea straight away is always good. Please contact us if you want to return- we offer a discount for repeat bookings.
