  • "The location of the property is excellent and the parking good."

    As requested at the end of our stay we stripped the bedding only to find that there was no mattress protector and the mattress was badly stained - not by us. The paintwork throughout is flaking and there are damp patches on the walls and ceilings. There is no coffee table and the settee and chairs are worn and scruffy. The carpets have seen better days. The fridge door has dropped so it does not close easily. The bathroom is cramped and dated. Outside when we arrived there was an abandoned sock and and empty crisp packet, both now binned. From the silt on them they had been there some time. The table and chairs were rusting. There were weeds all over the quayside.

  • "The location was amazing and apartment was clean but property needs a full refurbishment."

    There were water damaged patches all over and the paintwork on the walls is pealing off. Fridge door didn’t shut properly , one of the sofas was broken, TV was very dated and the furniture seemed like it was old discarded furniture which someone no longer wanted in their house.

  • "Quayside cottage was a fantastic place to stay."

    The location with its own slipway was so special.. paddleboarding and boating directly from the house was awesome! Lots of steps to access the house from land so just be aware.

  • "The accommodation was not as clean as we would expect."

    The fridge was dirty and the door rack is broken off. Bathroom tile grouting is mouldy. Carpets could do with a proper clean with a carpet cleaner. The paintwork around the windows is mouldy, it wipes off easily enough. The windows need cleaning. The skirting boards have fluff/dust on them. The top of the bathroom tiles have fluff/dust on them. The louvre slats in the bedroom are full of fluff/dust. There was a damp towel left on the towel rail. The lobby is grimy. In addition the general maintenance is not up to snuff. We appreciate the difficulty of looking after an old property especially right next to the sea. The towel rail doesn't work. There are two defunct bulbs in the lounge and one in the twin room and no spares. The outside table needs replacing as it has rusty holes.

  • "We were disappointed with our accommodation as we paid top money."

    The quality of the bedding, duvet and mattress in particular need attention. No hand soap in bathroom and kitchen. A surprise considering covid19. No bathroom cleaning products. No fresh pan scourer. The shower was adequate but could be better. No welcome package other than tea and coffee. I did expect a little more.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The bedding at the property is all from the high quality brand "The White Company" Cleaning products and soap are usually at the property for guests and I will investigate why this was not done on this particular occasion or if they need to be left in a more obvious position. The usual welcome pack was discontinued at the time for covid hygiene and hope you can appreciate this decision was with guest safety in mind. Property Owner

  • "A great apartment with a quaint quayside by the water."

    Swimming possible but cold. Great location, shops inc Tesco and ferry (recommend the trips) very close. The WiFi that’s good has the code on the back of the router. The apartment’s location needs a little more description: An alley off the high street down steps to the end through an unlocked door marked “Britons”; small courtyard: apartment ahead. Spare key wasn’t available. Great area for a holiday with lots to do and a nice apartment to facilitate it.

  • "Car parking space is only suitable for a small to medium size car."

    Gylly beach is beautiful but a 20/25 minute walk. Wonderful apartment, perfect setting and great facilities, very close to the shops. We did not have anyone above us so cannot comment on the noise as a previous renter has. We couldn't use the slipway in the day as there were men working on the bottom of it. All in all a great base to explore Falmouth from.

  • "The location of the property is stunning and it is well kept and well equipped."

    Everything you need. Just be careful - there are a lot of steps to get in and out ! I must add that during our stay there was no-one staying upstairs so I do not know how noisy that would be. We had a great week-I had not expected the property to be so romantically close to the water. Thank you.

    Terrible holiday was ok until the Sunday when people moved in apartment above noise was intolerable and had to come home day early due to this the price I paid was high for the holiday and feel a little ripped off my wife was unhappy as this was only holiday for us this year due to my work

The property

This waterside apartment right in the centre of Falmouth has sea views that make this retreat a must for everyone. It is the only property in Falmouth with its own private quay, slipway and pontoon at your disposal.

You will not find a better place to stay that caters for all your needs! Equally suitable for families, couples or friends alike, guests can plan a group holiday or a short romantic break, whatever the occasion may be. Wander past the private south-facing garden and take the steps down to Quayside, where you will enter a contemporary open-plan living and dining area with modern furnishings throughout.

The double and twin bedrooms are recently re-decorated with neutral walls and crisp White Company bed linen.

They are an ideal place to unwind with a good book then drifting off with the sound of the sea lapping all around you. Each window is an ever changing painting of the ocean views with their backdrop of the rolling hills of Flushing and St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula. As with the rest of the property, the family bathroom is finished to a high standard with a bath and shower above and once again a picture postcard window looking North up the estuary towards the village of Penryn. You will want to spend some time outside on the patio area making the most of the scenic location and the often clement weather conditions.

Many guests have enjoyed fishing for their supper from the pontoon and cooking it straight away on the barbecue.

You would be hard pushed to find fresher fish anywhere, even at the many fantastic restaurants in Falmouth town! The town's authentic old harbourside pubs, excellent shopping, art galleries, beaches and award winning National Maritime Museum go some way to giving you an idea of the breadth of activities on offer. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful old fishing village of St Mawes, surrounded by rocky coves, sandy beaches and green countryside – reached by a regular short ferry from the Prince of Wales pier – just 200metres from Quayside. Details of all the wonderful activities and excursions available for all ages and interests on Quayside’s doorstep can be found on the coffee table for you to peruse and plan your stay at leisure. offering endless hours of relaxation.

Cosy up on the vibrant sofas and prepare an evening meal in the stylish kitchen before wandering outside to be at one with the calming sea views.

The double and twin bedroom are neutrally decorated for a soothing effect, an ideal place to unwind with a good book and escape into your own world.

Take a moment to appreciate the beautiful views that rest outside the window, a refreshing backdrop to wake up to.

The family bathroom is complete to a standard of quality with a bath and shower above, so you can get ready in style from one day to the next.

You will want to spend some time outside on the patio area or balcony making the most of the scenic location.
