  • "This is the 2nd Christmas here."

    When we came the first Christmas there was a Christmas tree in the living room. Unfortunately there wasn't one this Christmas which was very disappointing. Was also disappointed there was no coffee like it states on list. The water pressure was low however my husband fit the boiler so didn't have any more issues with it. The radiators in both bedrooms wasn't working. The towel radiator in the en suite also wasn't working. On the plus side the view from the living room was spectacular. Watching the surfers and swimmer in the sea. The skirting boards around the apartment was filthy.

    Thank you for visiting for a second time and we are so sorry that the Christmas tree was not put up, it was in the kitchen cupboard and we had assumed that the housekeeper had put it up, we shall speak with them to ensure that this does not happen again. Similarly, we will speak to them about the coffee and skirting boards, although it is regrettable that the guests did not mention this on arrival as we would have insisted that the cleaner returned to correct this immediately. This guest was in touch with us during they stay, and these points were not mentioned and so we are saddened that we did not have the opportunity to rectify them during their stay. A plumber has looked at the boiler and the bedroom radiators. As per the information leaflet, the controls for the bathroom radiators are located just outside each bathroom so that guests can adjust the bathroom radiators to their preferred temperature. We thank you again for your feedback, this is always helpful and can confirm that the comments have been addressed. We are glad that the guests took the opportunity to text us on departure to say that they has had a 'wonderful stay' and so this feedback is very disappointing and somewhat unexpected.

  • "We loved our time in Newquay."

    The location of the apartment was fantastic, with an unforgettable view of the harbour, beach and Atlantic. It was very well equipped, warm, and everything we had hoped for. We would happily use it in the future. The very slight negatives are: 1) The sofa and seat in the living room weren't very comfortable. 2) The only access to the apartment is via an unlit and very quiet alleyway, which my wife found a bit unsettling. We didn't experience any problems, and we didn't see any 'dodgy characters' lurking about, but my wife wouldn't walk back on her own at night.

    Slight problem finding it, Sat Nav confused by Newquay's one way system.

  • "Fabulous apartment right in the middle of everything that Newquay has to offer."

    Very comfortable and well equipped. The views were amazing. The parking space was a god send and the lift up to the first floor with our bags helped the old legs. The apartment was extremely clean and felt like home as soon as we got in. The scones, jam, cream and milk were extremely welcome thank you. Would love to return now that we know the way into the car park as even though we used the sat nav details provided it took a while due to the one way system.

    No tea, coffee or sugar, after a long journey it was a good job we brought our own. All the plug in smellies were empty. Did have problem with back door key.

    The view sat from the balcony is stunning,and 5 minutes walk onto the beach. Starting from the parking which is very secure (if you take a second car there is free parking in front of the apartment too) The beds were comfortable and with quality bedding.There was plenty of hot water in great showers and a modern well stocked kitchen (thank-you for the milk and scones )and the seating area with comfy chairs facing the sea. Board games supplied and even Netflix for guests. 5 minutes walk to the main street and lots of shops and restaurants, far too many to recommend,but we tried quite a few. Would highly recommend this property 10/10

    Heated towel rail in en-suite bathroom not working as previously mentioned. We were disappointed that there were very few basics left in the apartment ie kitchen roll, only a tiny amount of washing up liquid, no dishwasher tablets and a tiny amount of liquid hand soap etc. But other than these points the apartment is modern and well equipped for a comfortable stay and we would consider returning in the future

  • "Pros - great location, wonderful view."

    Comfortable beds, super strength showers. Netflix a very welcome perk. Secure car parking. Cons - no wardrobe in 2nd bedroom. Glass shield over hob quite dangerous! Lack of basic kitchen utensils (potato masher, slotted spoon, sieve). Bath very slow to drain. Great to have 2 washing machines, but no clothes airer? Would rather dry clothes naturally rather than waste energy using the tumble dryer.

  • "The flat was excellent, The glass table top was loose and when you rested on it it tipped up."

    Glass tables high or low ,would not be my choice when small children are running around very dangerous. The Hob extractor was too low kept banging my head on it. The settee could do with changing not comfortable. Other than the furniture the flat was very good.

    Thank you for your feedback, I'm glad to see you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you weren't happy with the glass table, I can assure you that its made to safety standards. We will check and ensure the tabletop is secured. We are in the process of replacing the settee and its due to be replaced when availability allows later this year. Thank you for your booking we hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

    The ever changing view of the sea is incredible. The beach is right in front of you with mesmerising sounds. Behind you are the shops, arcades and restaurants. Once parked in your allocated space you don’t need to use the car again you have everything you need. The beds are very comfortable, the apartment is spotless and there are all the resources and facilities you could possibly need. Onshore is a perfect place to stay many happy memories made!!

    We had super service from the owners who were very responsive. There were coat hangers missing from the wardrobe and these were posted the next day - brilliant! The directions were a little difficult to follow and we got lost on the one-way system. But we found it eventually. A full-length mirror in the hall would also be great for your lady guests. I would recommend this fabulous apartment to anyone wishing for a lovely holiday as it is well-appointed, spotless, has great views and is within walking distance of beaches and all that Newquay has to offer.

    We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We will take a look at the directions to see whether they can be simplified - Newquay in the summer is not always easy to navigate! Thank you for your suggestion of a full length mirror in the hall, we can add that next time the apartment is closed for maintenance. Thank you again for your booking. Property Owner

    Once we parked the car there was no need to use it again. Having the parking was one reason we booked here. Only one small issue was the dining table which had a glass top that wasn’t secure, if you had a young child that leant on it, it could quite easily topple over on them. This is definitely a place I will look to book again.

Lovely cream tea awaited us, which was very welcome. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again in the off season when it’s affordable! Although the weather was awful (storm Eunice), it didn’t matter, as we didn’t need to leave the apartment to be able to see the sea and the surfers and it was only a 5 minute walk to pick up a whole variety of food. Would thoroughly recommend.

    I loved the art work and the view was simply out of this world. The place was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was supplied with everything one could possibly want. And how nice to have a lift for hauling the always-too-heavy suitcase. The location was perfect; so close to the main shopping street and a short, although uphill, walk to Sainsbury in the other direction. You can sit on the balcony and enjoy watching the tide come and go around the island; and then it was was a short walk down to the beach. I did not have a car but the car park behind the building looked to be very easy to maneuver any size vehicle. I did have a "blip" one morning with the hot water heater; but Neil immediately had someone there to fix things. A great place to stay in Newquay. I highly recommend Onshore 4 to anyone.

Nothing was too far from the apartment. The private parking was very good. We had very good meals in Bush Pepper, 12 Beach Road and Rebellion Roast House.
