    Beautiful little apartment everything you would ever need is there, just two things as its for 2people there is no need for the amount of plates, and dishes there was so much there was no where to put your food so had to have it on work tops

    Absolutely blown away! We had a fantastic week in the beautiful apartment. So we'll finished and so comfortable, the apartment was so clean and well presented! Top marks to Truan and Louise! You really are the perfect hosts! Nothing was too much trouble and you were so helpful and welcoming! Always on hand no matter what we needed...even in the Tavern!! And almost forgot the welcome pack...a thoughtful extra we really were not expecting! Can't recommend highly enough! Thankyou to all involved!! Ben & Abbie

  • "Great property in the heart of Mevagissey."

    Comfy bed and great shower and kitchen had everything you need but would benefit from a freezer compartment in the fridge. Truan was great and let us know as soon as the property was ready allowing us to check in earlier - a real bonus because stated check in time is actually 5pm which is late but is stated in booking details. The only other slight negatives are that the property doesn’t get a lot of natural light and it would benefit from having coat hooks in the hall and a cupboard in the bedroom for easy access to storage. However, this wouldn’t stop me staying again though.

  • "A very pretty apartment, ideal for a short stay but not for two weeks."

    Having the bedroom upstairs and the bathroom downstairs was a bit of a pain, as was not having an on-site parking space (though we were able to use one of the empty apartment’s spaces for the first week). There is simply not enough storage space for a stay longer than a few days, either in the kitchen (little food cupboard space, no freezer), or bedroom (no drawers, only a couple of shelves in the ‘wardrobe’). The low eaves were literally a pain in the neck in the bedroom as you can’t stand straight at either side of the bed, only at its end. There is no hoover, broom, or mop for cleaning and, despite staying for two weeks, we did not get clean towels, bed linen, or a mid-stay clean, which was disappointing. On a positive note, the bed and sofa were comfortable, the shower was very effective, and the apartment is perfectly positioned in the centre of the village and makes a great base for days out. We would not stay again because of the issues mentioned but we had a good stay, despite the weather!

    Thank you for your feedback. Extra storage for the bedroom is being installed. We have taken up the issue with our cleaning team regarding the mid stay clean, this is usually standard procedure for all our properties. Please be assured this will not happen again. We are pleased you had a good stay and hope we will see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "The property was spotlessly clean."

    There are a few things noted. The lack of crockery and pans. The blind in the dining area was unable to be drawn up as wall mounted clip missing. The fridge has no ice box, it may be worth noting this The bedroom would benefit from larger drawers, a chair and a bin. There was a lot of noise coming from the pub across the road Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. Perhaps this was because we had the velux windows open so the noise travelled. The view from both windows in the living area is not the most desirable looking out onto a building in need of repair one side especially. None of the above affected our stay and would certainly recommend the area. We went on the Mevagissey to Fowey ferry it was well worth the trip. Unfortunately we missed the dolphins. Had a wonderful day at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The decor and pictures in the apartment were impressive. The information before hand was prompt and very helpful. There were no issues with the car parking and loading/unloading the car went well.

    Dear Mrs Phoenix, I am sorry you have issue with the wall clip missing, as they are made of Perspex and unfortunately they break quite easily, however the blinds do not require the cord to be tied as the blind is designed to stay up without being tied. With regards to crockery and pans we only recently received a comment saying there was too much, I just think is a matter of preference. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to see you return to property. All points have been noted. Property Owner

    Central to the village with a couple of good pubs in spitting distance. Truan very accommodating, letting us know we could get in early, and also leaving a little later as no-one in immediately after. Just a pity there is not an allocated parking space as there is for the other properties. Still car park not too far unless it's raining

  • "Captain's Cabin is a bright, modern and very comfortable property."

    We stayed for a week and were really pleased with our accommodation. The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to cook and the bathroom has a great shower. The property is ideally situated round the corner from the harbour so there are some cafes, restaurants and bars nearby and there are lots of seats around the harbour so you can relax and enjoy the scenery. There are also many interesting places to visit within a few miles distance. We have already recommended Captain's Cabin to our friends!

  • "Only one fault really, the boiling hot bedroom."

    We stayed 10th June - 17th June and the weather was in the low to mid 20's. The bedroom was boiling hot of a nighttime, even with the fan running all night. Although the bedroom does have 3 Velux Lights, if you open them for fresh air, the noise from the seagulls (mainly) and the pigeons does continually wake you throughout the night, we tried it one night, the seagulls don't seem to rest, forever squawking. But it is a seaside village, so there will be seagulls, loads of them, and they certainly know how to make a noise in the middle of the night. We tried just releasing the 'vents' on the Velux's and whilst quietening the noise of the seagulls, it did nothing to release the heat from the bedroom. We were advised not to leave the Velux’s open during the day, especially if we were out, because in the past the seagulls have got in and spoiled everywhere, leaving a ‘clean-up’ operation. I suppose ultimately, the bedroom could do with air conditioning, but that comes at a cost to the landlord, and would people be prepared to pay something towards the extra cost, having suffered, I know I would. Overall, the property is lovely, no complaints elsewhere, it is only the boiling hot bedroom which lets it down.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to hear that the warm bedroom affected your sleep. In light of your comments we will be installing an air conditioning unit. We hope you will visit us again in the near future Property Owner

    They were roosting on window cills, parts of roof and gutters .The amount of bird mess all over the place and our car was awful .All the velux windows are coverd in it.We cut our stay short a day early as we were exhausted from lack of sleep .Such a shame, to what should have been a great holiday.

    We are sorry to hear your comments with regards to the birds. The property is in a working fishing village and unfortunately we have no control over the birds. We are delighted to hear that otherwise you had a great holiday in our property. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic little apartment with great facilties."

    Definatley good for couples as located right in the centre of town above a tapas bar. You have a good pub opposite and are surrounded by bars and restaurants. A 5 minute stroll to the harbour where there are more places to shop and eat. Boat trips available from there. There are 2 flights of stairs in the apartment and a loft bedroom, then on the first floor there is an open plan kitchen, lounge, diner. Smart tv with Netflix on downstairs and in the bedroom another Smart tv but you need your own sign in for up there. Very comfy sofa and clean and nicely decorated throughout. Small shower room with sink and wc and plenty of hot water and powerful shower. Mevagissey is (in our opinion) more geared up for adults as there was little space for children to let off steam and the roads have no pavements and the traffic can be busy. There is a big campsite nearby and plenty of kids were busy trying to catch the crabs by the harbour.

    Right in the center of the town and very near the harbour. Parking included was a big bonus. Louise was very helpful and the wine and biscuits on arrival were a lovely surprise. And it has a dishwash as well as the washing machine which I didn't see mentioned in the add. Our Ordinance survey map was well used and footpaths were well signposted. Heligan was spectacular. Bus was easy, costs less if you use the app and can get a week ticket. St Austal was very disappointing. We visited during partial lockdown easing so a lot of places weren't open and the town was pretty quiet which suited us but I guess it will be crazy busy in peak season. So overall a great much needed holiday.

A stylish apartment sitting in a superb position for exploring the coast and countryside of Cornwall, Captain's Cabin is the ultimate romantic escape.

This contemporary abode offers all you could need for a relaxing retreat in Mevagissey.

Enter up the stairs and onto the first floor, opening the door into your enchanting apartment to meet the wonder of the open-plan living space.

Flick on the kettle to prepare a warming cup of coffee, before retreating to the rear of the room to find the snug sitting area, home to an impressive corner sofa you can enjoy snuggling up to your loved one in the evenings with your favourite films on the television.

Sit together at the dining table and raise a glass over a romantic meal, the sleek and well-equipped kitchen being home to all the essentials needed when you're not making the most of the fresh seafood and the delicious waterside eateries of Mevagissey.

Also on the first floor rests the sparking shower room, where you can enjoy a refreshing soak before moving up to the second floor to cosy up beneath the covers of the king-size bed.

The bedroom offers a snug spot to rest, with its Velux windows providing the best views of the village below, there's so much delight to be seen!

The location of the property is an extremely desirable spot, popular for its picturesque harbour, there's no better place for a romantic evening stroll following a day of wandering the quaint shops and delicious eateries of the area.

Spend some time exploring the rich history of the local area in the Mevagissey Museum, where you can learn about the rich maritime history of this charming fishing village, or see marine life up close at the village's very own aquarium, home to a diversity of local marine wildlife, it makes the perfect way to get to know the area.

Relax on the golden sands of Mevagissey Beach, or venture out to explore the two main wonders of Cornwall; The Lost Gardens of Heligan, styled as a 19th century Gardenesque offer an extremely scenic walking route, while the Eden Project allows you to explore two fantastic biomes housing plants in divers climates and environments; they're both a unique marvel to be seen.

In easy reach of Truro and St Austell too, both boasting their own splendor and excitement, Captain's Cabin is the ultimate choice for your next coastal escape to Cornwall.

Mevagissey Apartments

Two sleek and stylish apartments resting in the fishing port of Mevagissey, both Midships and The Crows Nest offer a beautiful base from which to discover Cornwall. Whether you visit as a couple, friends or a family of four, these two properties are perfect for any occasion. Both properties offer an open-plan living space, making a wonderful spot for a social gathering or time alone in pairs snuggled up on the sofa when you're not out exploring the wonders of the local area. Sample some of the extraordinary local produce and delicacies within the array of restaurants and eateries, or visit Mevagissey Wet Fish to pick up some fresh seafood for some home-cooking. Wander around the picture-perfect harbour and enjoy an ice cream as you watch the boats come and go on a sunny day. Embark on a trip to Pentewan Beach via the South West Coast Path, and be amazed by the bright white sands and clear blue sea before you. Not far away is an enchanting attraction, The Lost Gardens of Heligan with incredible landscaped areas with tropical plants, and unique sculptures dotted around, some hiding within the flora and fauna. Don't miss a chance to visit the world-famous Eden Project where two huge bio-domes house tropical and Mediterranean climates to showcase a host of plants and flowers from around the world. The pretty harbour of Charlestown makes a lovely detour, and is home to the Shipwreck Treasure Museum holding artefacts from over 150 shipwrecks including the famous Titanic, whilst a tour around the St Austell Brewery is a great activity choice, founded in 1851 by Walter Hicks, it is not the biggest brewery in Cornwall. Relax in the quaint fishing village of Mevagissey with your loved one in The Crows Nest. The Mevagissey Apartments are a wonderful place from which to explore the many delights of Cornwall.
