  • "We had a lovely night stay in the apartment."

    It's so clean and comfortable. Just minutes away from the harbour buses and shops Great for us as we had travelled down by train and hadn't any transport. Thank you for all the useful items left in the kitchen and bathroom. It was so nice not to have to rush out to the shops. The garden was perfect so peaceful and relaxing.

    Dear Lucile, thank you so much for taking time to leave us such lovely feedback. We’re so happy you enjoyed the flat, the garden and the location. Ley and Yinka Property Owner

  • "The property was clean, comfortable and very stylish."

    The only problem was the size of the bedroom which was a bit on the small side. The bed was only accessible from one side which proved difficult for a couple of 70 year olds. We should have realised this as it is shown in the photos but unfortunately we didn't pick up on it before making our booking.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We hope you had a lovely time in our beautiful beach town. Ley and Yinka Property Owner

  • "The apartment was great and the garden a bonus."

    We believe a new mattress is warranted as guests will roll together into the middle! Whilst only a short walking distance to town, we felt the general local area was not great and we were concerned having to street-park. On that point, the concrete area at the front could easily be converted into 2 spaces. We recommend this as an upgrade to the property.

    Thank you for taking time to leave  your feedback the contents of which have been noted. We have replaced the mattress. Although it is less than a year old, we want to make sure that all our guests enjoy a comfortable sleep in our holiday let. The property listing specifically details that only street parking is available. We would love to provide all our guests with designated off street parking but sadly to date we haven’t been able to acquire access to develop the paved area that you have identified in your feedback.  Property Owner

    Lovely well maintained garden too, which would be a lovely place to sit in warmer weather.

  • "It would have been helpful if a roll of toilet paper, one or two sachets of shower gel, shampoo and conditioner be made available on arrival."

    Just enough until I could purchase some for the remainder of my stay. I had arrived after 9pm in the evening direct from a transatlantic flight and a long, delayed train journey. This is the first time that I have been in a holiday property that has not provided these essentials. It was a lovely property, great location and I would not hesitate to book it again.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have taken note of the points you have made. We are delighted you enjoyed the property and its location and that you would not hesitate to come back. We sincerely apologise if items were missing from the bathroom that we would always provide with extras being under the sink. This would have most certainly been an oversight. We have let our changeover staff know. As we are self catering rather than a hotel we don’t automatically supply the same level of toiletries for our guest, who would normally bring their own items. If contacted we would certainly do our best to support guests in whatever way we can. We hope you felt welcomed with our hospitality provisions of Prosecco, Cornish tea, coffee and biscuits and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

    On street parking was straightforward, not a big deal when able to walk into Falmouth.

The property

Nestled in the heart of Falmouth, a bustling town in Cornwall is Oystercatcher, a well-positioned, first-floor apartment.

Just paces away from the harbour, a hub of amenities and attractions, and the beach, Kimberley Park offers a contemporary dwelling for two guests, ideal for lone travellers, friends and couples looking to explore the delights of Cornwall.

Park in nearby on-street parking before making your way up the internal stairs and into the apartment.

Start your break in the well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare romantic meals for two, to be enjoyed around the dining table; on warmer days, set the patio table and take advantage of your outdoor space.

Load the dishwasher and flick on the Smart TV, ready to cosy up for a film night, before climbing into the plush double bed for some rest.

Complete your morning routine in the sleek shower room, before planning your itinerary, starting off local in the town, with plenty of shops, eateries, and pubs to tour and benefit from.

In the area you'll also locate Falmouth Art Gallery, Falmouth Harbour, the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Swanvale Nature Reserve, and Swanpool Beach, all recommended to discover whilst on your travels.

Pendennis Castle is also worth a visit, enjoying a coastal vantage point, before hiking to the seafront from Pendennis Head.

By car, stop off at Penryn Museum for a historic activity, or don your walking boots for a trek and afternoon of bird watching at Kennall Vale Nature Reserve, before reaching Truro, the Royal Cornwall Museum and Truro Cathedral, a lovely way of finishing off your day before sundowners.

Make memories as a pair at Kimberley Park.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
