  • "We loved this property."

    We've been to Newquay a lot of times, and this is definitely the best property we've stayed in. The location is amazing, with spectacular views over the bay, and very convenient for the shops and restaurants in the town centre. The house was modern, clean and inviting, and most importantly very comfortable. The only downside was the lack of on-site parking, which meant having to pay extra for the nearby long stay car park, but that's understandable given the location. We'll definitely be back.

  • "A lovely property, spacious and tastefully decorated."

    It was so close to the town, beach and attractions so great for younger children. The welcome shortbread and teas and coffees etc were very thoughtful and it was great that there was handwash and tea towels etc provided too. Lovely touches which we so often forget to bring with us. Thanks for a lovely stay and we hope to visit again one day.

  • "Lovely gaff!"

    Very comfy, great location and local to everything. Big recommendation. Would love to come back. Only thing was the steps leading up to the front door. Could be a real issue in the wet with anybody with any mobility issues. Could be emphasised in pre booking information.

    So cosy, and fabulous views across the harbour /beach. Don't be put off by outside - the inside is really high quality and homely. Miss it already...

  • "We and our four boys had a fabulous time at Sailors Rest."

    We were very pleasantly surprised how this beautiful house looked and also by the amenities it offered. It was truly a home from home in a perfect location with the most stunning views of the sea to wake up to each morning. The only negative, if we were to find one would be the fact that it doesnt have its own parking. This, however didnt pose a problem to us as we parked the car on a side street not too far away and we hardly had to use the car for the rest of the week. We would definitely come back again (maybe in the summer) and highly recommend this property, Thank you so much. Rob, Amanda and boys.

    A real home from home stay. Very comfy beds. The house was perfect, did not have to move the car once. Would definitely return, and recommend to family and friends. To sum it up PERFECT. We stay in at least 4 cottages a year, and this was one of the best.

    Clean, comfortable, accessible (Sainsburys, Towan Beach, town), an incredible view, great showers, storage for boards (it would be great if the external door could be locked)...the list goes on. I hope we find an excuse to visit again in the not too distant future.

    The property was more than adequate for a big family and a dog, the sea views were amazing, Everything is right on your doorstep, we found the space more than enough for us all, wouldn’t hesitate to book again, my only little complaint would be the steps outside going up to the property, very steep and could be slippy, my dog struggled to get up them.. maybe some strips of artificial grass would make them safer. Overall best place we have stayed so far!!

  • "I'm not sure the amount of steps to get into the property is mentioned."

    My Mum would have struggled if she'd of had to have done it more than once a day. Property itself is lovely and the upside down style makes full use of the gorgeous views. Outside tap was a bonus for the kids paddleboards. One thing that would have been useful to have is some plastic cups/plates for our younger children. Everytime they used a glass I panicked that they were going to smash it. We had a very lovely time at Sailors rest!

  • "We’ve just spent a lovely week at Sailor’s Rest."

    The accommodation itself is just brilliant for a family beach holiday. As you come in there is a small but secure outside area with a hose to clean off your sandy feet and big enough for us to store 2 sit on kayaks and a surf board. Go into the property and you are in a utility area where you can pull off wetsuits etc to avoid taking mess into the apartment. Bedrooms are large and airy but the real feature is the top floor where there Is a good sized kitchen diner and a lovely sunny roof terrace with views of Towan Beach and the harbour. Position wise it’s perfect. Slap bang in the middle of town. It’s 3 minutes walk to the harbour and Towan beach which is a good family beach and 10 minutes to Fistral Beach. Right opposite there is a Sainsbury’s so It’s easy to pop across to get any shopping.

    The 2 double beds are described as Kingsize but are definitely smaller than that. The fridge is too small for a property for 8 people. Everything else was wonderful, loved the location and the interior design.

  • "We are just home from a week at Sailors Rest and we had the most amazing time."

    The location is perfect with just a short walk to the harbour and the beautiful sandy beach. Sailors Rest itself is just the perfect Cornish holiday house. The views are breathtaking. Travelling as a family of 7, I was a little apprehensive about the fact that there was no parking at the property, but the nearest long stay carpark is a three minute walk up the road and I was easily able to purchase a weekly ticket. Thank you to Vicky, who couldn’t have been more helpful in the run up to our holiday. Sailors Rest was all we imagined it would be and more. We hope to stay again in the not too distant future.

  • "We had a lovely time at the Sailors Rest, it is a lovely big comfortable house."

    There is absolutely nothing we would complain about, on the couple of times we contacted the owner he couldn’t have been more helpful. This house had everything we could possibly ask for, it even had a large dog bed, dog bowls and outside shower to wash away the sand. The location of the Sailors Rest is perfect for the beautiful sandy beaches, it was lovely having a glass of wine on the roof top terrace watching the surfers. Its an easy stroll into the town, although we had most of our evening meals in either The Fort or The Red Lion which is right on the doorstep. We would definitely give The Sailors Rest five stars.
