Owner's reply: So pleased your stay was a good one. Thank you for your complementary review.
Myself and my partner stayed at the sea view hillside villa and what an amazing time we had. The villa is perfect, all mod cons and so comfortable and stylish. It's positioned in a small bay and the views out to the sea are amazing, as are the vies in the other direction of the countryside. It's a perfect retreat and myself f and my partner can't wait to return there!!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Congratulations on your engagement while staying in Sea View, you are welcome back any time.
“Another fabulous stay”
Booked direct with Karen after visiting the previous year. Fantastic communication on all accounts. We arrived late at night (10pm), and she had kindly arranged to have the outside lights on and the heating on in the lounge. There were four of us visiting, 2 adults and 2 chocolate labradors. 63 ish steps up to the front door and you reach the apartment. It is very contemporary with a couple of leather settees in the lounge and free view tv with dvd player. Fully equipped kitchen with washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge, freezer. Two bedrooms, double and twin, with amazing sea views from both the master bedroom and the lounge. Large patio outside, again with amazing uninterrupted sea view. Bathroom with electric shower over bath. Heating costs were approximately £4 a day in winter, this included keeping one radiator on in the lounge 24 hours a day, extra radiator on in the lounge in the evening, bedroom heater on morning and night, also the washer/dryer was used once. Extra electricity cards can be purchased 24 hours a day from one of the chalets. We actually had snow/sleet and hail while we were there, and we were warm enough. You could of course put the underfloor heating on, but this can be a bit costly and we didn't need it. We walked to Looe along the beach (a bit of rock scrambling and 30 mins or so), to Seaton (just over an hour if you go up and over Looe Hill), we also visited Mount Edgecombe Park by car. There is a lot of work going on the site, and its going to be amazing by the time its finished, and probably a lot more expensive, the work men were not intrusive in any way and we only heard them when we were out and about and even that wasn't noisy. The beach is very close by with a cafe (not open in January) and is dog friendly off season all day long, I believe there is a 10-6pm ban of dogs during the summer months. Few places to recommend: Coddy Shack for fish and chips (5 mins drive); Mount Edgecombe Park for an amazing walk in a fantastic location and a cream tea at the end (30 mins drive ish); Smugglers Inn at Seaton is very dog friendly (even damp-ish dogs allowed); great baked potato at Ye Olde Saluation in Looe (again dog friendly). Aldi and Morrisons at Liskeard (about 8 miles away); couple of Co-ops in Looe. Top and bottom of it... Would I recommend, Yes... Would I visit again, Yes.
Owner's reply: Wow, thank you for the fantastic review. Of course you are 'all' welcome back any time. ( Must just mention, 2nd room also has a double bed!) Thanks for the heating tips, the radiators are a new improvement; if people do not wish to use the more expensive under floor heating......there is the choice. Thanks again Karen
“Definitely a Sea view!”
What a great place to stay if you want exercise, relaxation, a place to read and let the world go by. Everything is lovely in the property with very good supply of essentials for self catering. Cosy and comfortable with amazing views from the balcony which would act like an extra living space in the warmer months. Had a great few days.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad you were able to relax. I know you had to go into Looe to connect to BTPhon, then it was ok. There is a free BT hotspot for BT Internet customers only. Black Rock cafe also has wifi, but is closed for the winter now. Rachel, you are welcome back, anytime.
“Quiet, Peaceful location well positioned for exploring many places of interest”
A fabulous location for those seeking peace and quiet, but well situated for walking into Looe or for driving to other towns, villages and tourist hot-spots. The apartment has fantastic sea views overlooking the small bay and is furnished with every possible need. There is a very large balcony that is well equipped with a bbq, tables, chairs, lounges and cushions if needed. The owner was extremely helpful from the initial enquiry right through to our arriving back home at the end of our stay. In my opinion the apartment is very comfortable for two people and would suit a couple or a small family. The bedrooms are snug but comfortably furnished for a holiday, one of them looks out over the bay from the bed - such a treat to wake up to! For me the experience would have been perfect had the bed and sofa's been more comfortable. There was a restaurant just moments from the apartment that we were not able to use as it was, I imagine (nothing posted on the property to advise otherwise), closed for the season? We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would return again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review. We have taken on board your comments. When we go down next week to paint throughout, we will replace the front bedroom mattress. I have also amended my details, letting guests know that the café appears to have more sporadic opening times than in previous years. The lovely Cornish people have a laid back approach to opening and closing times! More recent guests have said the café was actually open some days during their stay! (Black Rock Beach Café is on face book for details.) Hope to see you next year. Karen
The view is wonderful. Very peaceful and relaxing the walks are well worth it. Definitely need walking shoes. Will be booking again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. When we get our fitness up, we are going to attempt the coastal walk to Polperro....luckily there is a bus back to Looe if I can't make it both ways! Hope we have availability for your next visit.
“Perfect peaceful base to explore this part of Cornwall. We loved it.”
Well equipped, spotlessly clean accommodation in a peaceful location. Great views from the terrace, the owners even provided binoculars which were great for looking out to sea and for spotting deer on the hillsides. You definitely need a car to explore the lovely seaside villages of Looe, Polperro and Fowey. You can walk to Looe but need to be reasonably fit for the SW coastal path's ups and downs. Hope to return one day.
Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed your stay. A car is essential if you wish to explore Cornwall. There is a train station in Looe, but like you say, it's a hilly one mile hike! Thank you for your review, you are very welcome back.
Great villa with great amenities and Karens information pack was superb. Great walks for the dog. Looe superb and the fish and chips at the coddy shack to die for. You need a good set of lungs and walking shoes for the steep hills but we'll worthwhile the effort.
Owner's reply: Made me smile. Thank you. The Looe area is very scenic and hilly, but no pain, no gain. As I have mentioned, this is not the holiday for everyone, but for views, walks and peace and quiet it is the place to be. We are happy to welcome you back for your winter break.
“Fantastic place to stay”
We had a really great time, well worth the visit. The accomondation was clean and to a very nice standard. The views over the bay were lovely, great place to explore beach and rock pools will definitely be going back soon.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, you are welcome back any time. Best regards
“Wonderful sea view, spotlessly clean, excellent value for money !!!”
This has got to be THE BEST holiday villa we have ever stayed in. It had excellent facilities, a sea view to die for and was very affordable. We had a slight problem prior to arrival which the owner was quick to inform us about and offered a discount when we book again - which we most definitely will be doing. There are 63 stairs to climb to the villa but it is worth it. There is lots of parking and easy access to the beach which although small is more than adequate. The villa is ideally situated to explore around the area. This truly was a little gem of a find.
Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review, it seems you like it as much as we do! You are welcome back any time.....as are ALL our previous guests, who I have to say, have been great. We have been very lucky. Can't wait to go for Easter to do some decorating and renewals. Thanks again, Karen and Steve
