  • "Higher Mount View has the most stunning views from Marazion to St Michael's Mount."

    Perfect location for just relaxing or for discovering the wonderful history of the area. The addition of a lift made it accessible for a couple of less-than-able-bodied visitors for a week of rest and recuperation. Thank you Geoff for the lovely cream tea and helpful support.

    Lovely touches on arrival, views are amazing. Comfortable and warm. Everything you would ever need. Hosts even called to check on an issue out of their hands to apologise. Brilliant! We would love to return. Would recommend the Kings Arms for food (need to book) and following St Michael’s Mount on social media due to weather closures. Had a fantastic holiday. Thank you so much.

  • "We have just returned from a fabulous week at Higher Mount View."

    Despite the weather being mainly wet and windy, we had a wonderful time. The view from the property is outstandingly beautiful and constantly changing. The cleaner did an amazing job as it was spotless, well appointed with everything you could possibly need. It is perfectly situated to explore Cornwall as well as the beautiful village of Marazion. From the moment we arrived, with a warm welcome of fresh flowers, a cream tea in the fridge, milk, tea and coffee, we knew it would be difficult to leave at the end of our holiday.

    The view was just stunning, we would highly recommend this property and it would be even better when the lift is installed.

  • "Stunning property with the most perfect sea view ."

    We spent a lot of time sitting with a cuppa looking at the sea and St Michael’s mount . Facilities in the flat really good with comfy beds , great Kitchen and lounge area . A lot of stairs to the property so this is the only fal back for anyone with mobility problems . Within easy access of the limited facilities in Marazion there are some better shops a short drive or bus ride away in and on the way to Penzance . We have stayed in Marazion a lot but this property is by far the best because of the views .

    Thank you for your lovely review. We’re so glad to hear that you had a great holiday and enjoyed the views over the bay to St. Michaels Mount. You may have noticed the work that has been carried out on the side of the house, this is to facilitate a new lift which will be fully functional from the end of November this year. It’s going to be a great addition to both Higher Mount View and Mount View, with on site parking just outside the door to the lift there will be minimal handling of luggage, we’re certainly looking forward to it. We hope very much to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "We stayed at this property back in May."

    We couldn't fault the views and was the main reason why we chose this property. The biggest let down was the building work going on at the time which we were informed of but not in an accurate way. Builders were on site drilling from 8am in the morning and standing on our balcony looking at us, so that put a stop to being able to use the balcony during the day. We were advised that the building work would not impact the property in any way which was not true. We also has issued with wi-fi and parking. Having made contact after our holiday with full details, we were told the owner had no interest in the feedback and was not willing to compensate us in any way. Due to this short sighted view and lack of interest in the customer experience, we would not return to this property or recommend it to anyone.

  • "Delighted with the apartment and facilities."

    Views over the bay were outstanding. We fully recommend. There was no teapot and we would have appreciated having one. The poor state of the front of Camelot House is a detraction, and was an initial shock. We fully understand it is a jointly owned area, but improvement is necessary.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and take on board your suggestions, a teapot will soon be in the cupboard. After Christmas extensive work is being undertaken to add a lift to the right hand side of the property, which will service both Mount View and Higher Mount View. In addition we will be having the car park surfaced with tarmac. We don’t own the ground floor flat, but hope by creating our own direct entrance via the new lift this will give a greater impression on arrival. We look forward to welcoming you back should you visit Marazion in the future. Property Owner

  • "The location couldn’t be better and the views are fantastic, we have been before and would book again."

    That being said, the apartment could do with updating and some attention. Cleaning needs to be more thorough, the mirrors in the bedroom were not clean, dropped something and happened to look under the sofa and that’s not been done recently (urgh), the blind in the twin room is broken & useless as a means of keeping light out as are the curtains in the main bedroom. The duvets are incredibly heavy and in the summer in a top floor apartment could REALLY do with being much lighter. The sofas are as flat as a pancake! Lots of things could do with replacing now, the heated towel rail is a bit grim, missing bit of flooring in bathroom, wardrobe doors that don’t close. Overall we would return simply because of the location but a bit of updating is overdue.

    Thank you for your feedback. Your comments have been raised and discussed with the owner. Thanks again for your comments and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the location and would come again. Property Owner

    It was clean and roomy for the two of us. Parking wasn't an issue either, having called in advance following a review left by someone who stayed before us who'd experienced difficulties. The view from the balcony was spectacular. We had a vase of flowers and some scones and cream left for us on arrival, which was a nice touch. In your specification about the apartments facilities, I would suggest adding that there is an iron and ironing board available. It would have been helpful to also have had a baking tray and bedside lamps too.

  • "Although this property is supposed to have a designated parking space, we arrived to find the space occupied, which is not a nice experience after driving 250 miles."

    We used the space for the cottage next door to unload and then had to find an alternative facility before the owner of that cottage returned. Considering that the property is on the second floor, unloading in a hurry after a long drive was not a good beginning to our holiday. We established that the rogue parking was from the ground floor occupants, who seem to think that they have a right to park in any space available for days on end. Their car finally moved on Wednesday so that we could utilise the allocated space but it returned when we went out for the day. This is not good enough and left us with an uneasy feeling each day as we did not know where we would be able to park on our return to the property.

    I needed a holiday, and slept a lot in the very comfortable bed. To be able to sit in bed, or in the living room with the sea just outside the window is wonderful. A few little niggles! 1. In our old age we had difficulty with the television! We spent the week watching ITV or nothing! 2. I really like to have a bedside light! ( solved at the car boot sale....for £1!) 3. My husband prefers a fairly upright chair, and struggles to get up from squashy settees! Solved by using one of the chairs off the balcony! 4. It was disappointingly cloudy and cold! But we did have a few sunny periods. At least we could stay in the warm, and watch others getting cold and wind blown!

The property

With some of the finest views that West Cornwall has to offer, this second floor apartment occupies prime position in the heart of Marazion.

The apartment's elevated vantage point offers spectacular views from the small private balcony and the rooms at the front to St Michael's Mount which stands majestically in the blue waters of Mounts Bay.

Occupying the top floor of an attractive house, it is approached via stairs from the ground floor.

The living room is open plan with seating facing the seascape and a well equipped kitchen and dining area to the rear.

Bright and sunlit, there are French doors leading from the living room to a private balcony - an ideal spot to watch a romantic sunset.

A double bedroom with a king size bed and large picture windows with fantastic sea views, an attractive twin bedroom and a modern shower room complete the accommodation.

There is also off-road parking for one car.

Described as one of the 'most beautiful bays in the world', the crescent of the bay stretches from the Lizard to Land's End, encompassing great day trip destinations such as Mousehole, Porthleven and Porthcurno.

Marazion Beach, which is favoured among families for its safe bathing, lies a stone's throw from this attractive top floor apartment as does the village centre with its charming blend of galleries, curio shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes.

A 20 minute drive north-west will transport you to the fishing village of St Ives and the north coast, famous for its surfing beaches and dramatic cliff top walks.

Higher Mount View is a fabulous destination for couples and small families at any time of year.
