  • "When I booked the holiday there was a photo of the decking and patio doors which I thought belong to the holiday let."

    They actually belong to the flat underneath which was a bit misleading., that photo has now been removed. The listing also says, enclosed garden but it's not fully enclosed as there is no side gate. This is one of the reasons I chose this place as we good leave the doors open so the dogs could come in and out on there own. Obviously we couldn't do this in the end. The holiday let was great very clean and as We couldn't make use of the garden we used the balcony to chill out in. My only issue with the holiday let was the mattress on the superking size bed, way to firm for me and caused me pain in my back/shoulders. A topper might be an answer but I appreciate it's down to personal preference. Phil was very kind, helpful and welcoming. His little goody pack was a nice touch. As a suggestion I would suggest getting a side gate fitted and garden furniture. I know it says a duplex but it might be worth mentioning there's a flat underneath and it's a shared garden. Overall very satisfied with Phils holiday let. Would happily come back and stay again. Kind regards Craig and Kim.

    I’m a good position for visiting all the beaches. The owner was very helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. There was a welcome pack of a cream tea and other essential which was lovely. We would have no hesitation recommending the house. Good off road parking which was a plus.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we really do appreciate it so much. I hope you had a good journey home and really hope you can join us again sometime, it would be lovely to see you both again. Property Owner

    Everything you could need to make your stay comfortable. Everything was within walking distance and the town centre is around a 30 minute walk. Phil was great and welcomed us to Newquay and had some great suggestions of places to go. The main bedroom has a real wow factor and the bed was so comfortable. We'd definitely stay here again!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, we are lucky to live in such a lovely part of the country and is great when we can share that with others. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We had the most fantastic week in Newquay and having such a lovely place to stay and come back to in an evening hugely contributed to our holiday."

    The accommodation is in a really great location. A coop across the road, a beach around the corner and not too much of a walk from the town centre. The house was warm, clean, well presented and well equipped. The owner of the house Phil, was very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend staying here and I'm sure we'll be back ourselves.

  • "The property was lovely and spacious."

    We were left a welcome card and a cream tea on arrival. Very clean, and the balcony was a nice bonus. The beds were very comfortable, and the owner was always available, if we needed anything. The attic room shower was a bit temperamental. Don't run the taps at the same time. We were a little bit disappointed by how busy the road was. Also the neighbours were quite loud, which resulted in police being called out one evening. Very close to Newquay Town centre, and main beaches. Bit of a walk, so you really need your car. We were very lucky with the weather, and our dogs enjoyed the massive walking field at the back of the property. Overall it was a good holiday and we would recommend the property to friends.

    Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to write it, we will work on those things we can affect to continue to improve the experience people have when they stay. Thank you again and I sincerely hope we will see you again. Property Owner

    He made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed and provided local recommendations! The flat is in a perfect location for Newquay town centre and several beautiful beaches, and a tesco and coop in walking distance! Plenty of parking space for two cars, and a great little balcony to sit out with a glass of wine! We couldn’t fault anything at all, perfect accommodation! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Location is pretty central to Newquay Town, Porth Beach is a short stroll away, the Mermaid pub serves a lovely carvery on Sunday which we pre booked. Indoors, the house is bright and immaculate, the underfloor heating is so warm after a days walking the stunning coastline.

  • "Thankyou for a lovely stay!"

    The property was completely immaculate, it's laid out very nicely I'd say it's like a spacious one bed flat, with a nice size balcony, but then with another floor above, with an huge extra bedroom with another fully kitted out bathroom! All the facilities worked perfectly, with plenty of cooking and dining equipment. the heating was very powerful and effective! We were very cosy in the freezing temperatures outside! Phil, the owner was very friendly and helpful! He has good knowledge of the local area, and I would be confident that if any issues would have arisen at the time of my stay, he would have been proficient in resolving them. I would recommend the place to anyone, my dog had a great experience too! The location is great, right near a lovely beach with decent shops and a great Indian restaurant within close proximity. I could not criticise or faultour experience at Elin Howlyek in anyway. We're hoping to return in the new year too:)

    We found it a comfortable size with two adults and two children but the lounge area may be a squeeze for four adults. It was lovely having the balcony to sit out on and we were not overlooked. WiFi was excellent and there is a bluetooth speaker and Sky which kept everyone happy. The only negative thing (if it bothers you) is the road noise. For the most part we didn't notice it it was just at times like bedtime or the rare quiet moment we had with two children! The apartment is a great base for visiting other areas of Cornwall and the local beach took us about 15 minutes to walk with little legs and it didn't bother them. It is a fantastic beach but check the tide times as low tide is very far away from the main sandy part. The sea in the bay is very calm and safe for the children.
