We`ve really enjoyed the view from the balcony and the location of the apartment only a short way from the beach as well as the fact that the apartment was well equipped with everything one could wish for.

July 2018

The apartment is very comfortable, well furnished, and has a luxurious feel. Fantastic views from the living area windows. In a great location, near to the coastal path with walks from the door into Falmouth and along the coast to Helford Passage. Meanporth beach is a 5 minute walk away.

March 2018

This is a lovely apartment and very well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. However, I would mention it is dangerous to walk down the main road to The Cove and the Beach Cafe but there are footpaths. We stayed for 2 weeks and found lots to do, especially with some lovely gardens near by.

July 2017

Fabulous apartment with super views from the balcony. Fabulous position in Maenporth which provides easy access to the coastal path almost from the door. Great walk to Falmouth in one direction and Durgan in the other. Also well positioned to explore the Lizard peninsula which is beautiful with so many things to see and do. Trebah gardens is outstanding and barely 15 minutes drive from wavewatchers.

March 2017

Well located apartment for the SW Coastal path. Quiet residential area, well secure and has all the amenities you would want for a holiday.

October 2016

We enjoyed our week at Wave Watchers-this is a quiet apartment in a block we heard no other noise from adjoining apartments....we sat out on the balcony for breakfast watching the sea.

The beds were comfortable and we liked the vintage retro feel to the furniture.

wifi very fast.
