  • "Highly recommended experience and outstanding venue to explore Newquay."

    Host (Rebecca) and her team (Denise) are helpful from the outset and make sure everything is in order and during the stay are always available to help. Just to be clear - the view is awesome!!! and I am not sure between the view and the accommodation you would want anything more. Fittings and amenities and apartment are of a high standard. Oh yes did I say the view is awesome! Close to station, Aldi, Asda, Eateries, pubs, high street, shops and sandy beaches and crashing seas. Simply great week and I can’t recommend a better week away for those who love the sea.

  • "We had an amazing holiday in the View."

    We went first week of October and had just the one day of rain. The view is breath taking and changes when the tide does. Fab watching the surfers and generally watching the world go by. Interior of apartment is quality and there is nothing you could want for. The owners provided all the information by phone you needed and when you arrived and Denise went out of her way to make sure your holiday was enjoyable. I highly recommend and definitely going back next year.

    Rebecca very kindly informed us as soon as the apartment was ready on arrival day, which was hugely appreciated as we arrived a couple of hours earlier than anticipated and Denise is deserving of particular acknowledgement for providing the most spotless and well-organised accommodation possible; a bespoke service!! Many, many thanks!!

    Only kitchen tap dripping the water, it was annoying. Sofa in living room was too deep.

    Dear Mr Burkiet, sincere apologies for the dripping tap. After seeing your comment we put the matter right within a few days. Hopefully it did not spoil your holiday.too much. Property Owner

  • "The View is the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in."

    Of course the view from the balcony is just perfect and changes throughout the day as the tide comes in and out but absolutely everything about our stay exceeded expectations. Fantastic communication from the owner and housekeeper and every inch of the property was spotlessly clean. The attention to detail was excellent from an extremely well equipped kitchen to fairy lights on the balcony - there isn't one thing you would want to change about the apartment. All in all, a perfect week and we will definitely be back.

    The apartment is luxurious with an amazingly comfortable king size bed with everything that we needed for a lovely relaxing break. Our host and the housekeeper kept in touch and made sure that we had everything we needed both before arrival and during our stay. We will definitely return, thank you.

  • "After spending a week at this amazing apartment, we can totally understand why it's called 'The View'."

    In reality it should be called, 'Wow, The View' as it's just so amazing. The second you walk in it just takes your full attention.   We enjoyed a week here late September and can happily say that we would go back again. The extra covid requirements are being taken and the apartment is ideally situated. The parking directly across from the apartment is perfect and secure and we never had any issues getting a place. There is plenty to do near by and the town centre is just minutes walk away as are local supermarkets. The apartment is secure and very nicely decorated. The bed was just so comfy and we spent plenty of time out on the balcony. There was only 2 of us but you could easily have 4 people staying, there is plenty of space. There is everything you need in the apartment and what shopping you do need can be bought very locally. Rebecca and Denise looked after us so well and checked that we had all that we needed, nothing as too much trouble and the cream tea on arrival was a lovely surprise and greatly appreciated. The Great Western Beach is literally right below you and it is such a beautiful beach. We enjoyed strolling along & even braved going in! Absolutely freezing lol. We highly recommend The View and hope to return in the near future.

  • "Great apartment with fabulous views!"

    We were certainly blown away by the views from the balcony both from the lounge and luxurious master bedroom. Could quite happily have sat there all week gazing at the sea view & sunsets! Great location for exploring Newquay & surrounding areas, most bars, restaurants and shops were set up well for the current social distancing measures whilst still feeling relaxed and welcoming. Would definitely recommend both Newquay and 'The View' apartment, communication from both the owner Rebecca and housekeeper Denise was great. Parking in the carpark across the road is very handy and we didn't have any problems getting a space. Very comfy beds and sofa!! Everything you need for a great holiday in beautiful part of the UK xx

    Everything you would need, clean, spacious and with all the modern extras like smart TV's that make that extra difference when away. Myself, wife and 3 year old daughter stayed for a week and loved our time here. The surrounding area was great with plenty to do for couples and families and the fact that we had this accommodation to come back to at the end of the day made it all the more special. Our favourite part of the day was sitting outside on the balcony with the blankets on, drinking a hot chocolate from the shop nearby, watching the sun set. We will be back!

    Things not always provided were ready and waiting, like dish washer tablets, toilet rolls, salt, pepper, vinegar etc. Instructions for appliances were easy to locate and wi-fi codes were ready to hand. The furniture and fittings were high-end and comfortable, and the fairy lights on the balcony in the evening were a lovely touch ! Can't fault the flat at all, the views were fantastic. The owner and housekeeper kept in touch and were readily available for any questions, if we had any - which we didn't, as everything was to hand. Everything we decided we needed in the kitchen - we found it in the kitchen ! I would highly recommend this property, as long as your legs can manage the two flights of stairs to get to it, as there's no lift !

  • "The apartment was the nicest holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few."

    The apartment was beautifully appointed and tastefully furnished, in a wonderful situation, with stunning views. A perfect situation in Newquay, near the bus stop, the station, two supermarkets and restaurants, and easy access to shops and beaches. Two flights of stairs to the apartment might be a problem for some people. The parking arrangement at the station car park directly opposite was very efficiently organised and all the directions to it, and to the apartment were very straightforward. We would definitely stay there again.

  • "We visited "The View" last year and were blown away by this fabulous apartment."

    We couldn't wait to return! Our stay had been so easy last year with everything we needed in the apartment that packing for the week was a lot easier, I had no need to bring the kitchen sink! Additionally a parking permit is supplied with the benefit of parking close by. Communication is also great from both the owner Rebecca and Denise who not only keeps the apartment clean but is also available should you need her. Both are very friendly and obliging. I consider all these factors aid the enjoyment of a holiday. A year passed until it was possible for us to return to "The View" but I can say that it was just as wonderful as we had remembered it. The place of course has a stunning view which is unrivalled but additionally the apartment is situated in a great location.It is clean, thanks to Denise and is equipped to a high standard. A real home from home. The master bedroom feels luxurious and glamorous and again has that fantastic view out of the double doors. It is very easy to stay in this apartment and not leave as it is so peaceful. All you hear are the waves below and the sea gulls calling out. If you want to escape and relax then this is the perfect place for you. If you enjoy walks on the beach then just a few yards walk via a slope leads to the beach. The shops, restaurants and town are all within easy walking distance. It is the perfect place to stay and we will be back again as soon as we can. On a separate note about the town, I have visited Newquay as a child, teenager , new mother and now a mother of teenagers. I have seen Newquay change over the years and go through some darker days which are clearly behind it, but it has never altered my love of this town with it's beautiful clean beaches and it's welcoming locals. The perfect mix of this luxurious, spacious apartment and stunning Newquay will keep us returning for years.

  • "This apartment is perfect in every way."

    It feels like it is your own home. The view as you walk in to the lounge is spectacular. The furnishings are good quality and luxurious. The sofa is very spacious and comfortable and positioned perfectly so you can gaze out at the sea all day and night watching the changing sky. The TV had sky and netflix and it was very easy to connect to the wifi so our 16 year old was very pleased. The kitchen was well fitted with a dishwasher and washing machine, large fridge and freezer. If you choose to cook there are plenty of pots and even a cake tin if you felt like baking. As i said, it really does feel like a home from home. The lounge kitchen feels spacious and airy. The bedrooms too were beautiful, with thick, soft carpet. My daughter had the front room which was again spacious with plenty of wardrobe space and the ensuite had shelving so everything has a place. The master bedroom was stunning. Again, very large and the whole end wall are patio doors looking out to sea and the headland. The bedlinen was good quality with soft sheets and the bed extremely comfortable. There are plugs where you need them and a beautiful dressing table with a hairdryer and hair towel. Again a lovely touch. The apartment also has a number of games, dvds and books applicable for all ages. There was also cleaning products and dish cloths left with a couple of dishwasher tablets so you didn't have to rush out to buy these immediately. Another nice touch was that the fridge, had bread, eggs and milk and of course scones, cream and jam. There were tea bags, coffee and sugar sachets which allowed us to have a nice relax when we arrived after our long journey. The whole apartment was very clean and fresh and Denise who cares for the apartment was in contact all the time so if we had needed anything we could contact her. From the street you only see a doorway in but it is like a little gem at the top of the stairs and you are transported in to a lovely calm place. Another thing I forgot was that there is a cupboard with beach towels and a place to leave the sandy bits so they dont walk in to the rooms. The position is great too. A few yards to the entrance of the beach, the supermarket is very close and you are very close in to town. All in all, this place exceeded my expectations. I normally stay somewhere else and have done for years but we all agreed this apartment and it's location although not down on the beach is much better. Plus, you have the convenience of a parking permit so we just dropped our bags and parked up the car in the carpark opposite and enjoyed a week of relaxation. We will definitly be back! :)
