we enjoyed our stay. it was unfortunate that the arrival was marred because the entry code did not work. after some delay the owner phoned with a completely different entry code.after a long hot journey it was the last thing we needed was to stand with our luggage for 60 mins outside the property.i know these things can happen but not too often I hope. the other thing is the patio,the advert would seem to say(or not say) that the patio area to sit and have a drink is private.It is not,it is used by any visitors to the property next including, postman,dustmen,builders and even Christian scientists.From what I gathered I am not the first to complain on this. All in all the property is well equipped,beds are comfortable.view is first class.bottle of wine is a good gesture. please accept my comments as constructive not destructive brian sutherland

We were very happy with our stay in the property and everything was done by the owner to make sure the property was warm. clean and welcoming on our arrival. We were 2 grandparents, son, partner and baby and the property being all on one level on the ground floor worked very well for us all with the family bathroom and separate shower room also with loo and basin so no queues for bathroom ! Very easy walk to town - a bit uphill on way back but manageable for 2 of us in our 70s and pushing a pushchair ! Lovely view from lounge and master bedroom over to Flushing watching various boats coming and going ! Lots of places of interest within easy reach of Falmouth and good places to eat in the town itself.

Extremely comfortable and well appointed property. The main bed was very comfortable. tremendous view when it wasnt foggy and only a 10 minute walk into town. Excellent local pub that is a 20 second walk away, NO that is not a misprint. This is a listed building and as such will always have "idiosyncrasies" like wooden patio doors that can be a little stiff and some strange wardrobe spaces, but these do not detract from what is a very comfortable and well positioned base. I have two complaints that hopefully the owner owners will address. 1. There is no cupboard space in the huge kitchen to put provisions for the holiday. 2. It is not cheap and for the price I would expect Wi-Fi. That aside we will be back next year. Chris & Debbie. Leeds,West Yorkshire

We left a number of comments to help the owner improve matters for those who come after us. However, it is our impression that nothing will change as previous comments in the visitor book have not been reacted to. Firstly, it is a good location near town and with the view shown in the picture. There is a serious problem with damp in this property which the owner is probably unable to do anything about. The rear bedroom is unhealthily damp and could give somebody with a respiratory weakness an illness within a short time. We would not have used this room under any circumstances. There was a large stain on the main bedroom curtains and this had been mentioned before. The sheet on the bed did not seem very clean and had a quantity of black specks on it which was not very pleasant. On arrival I found the combination locked box hiding the key very difficult to open. After a long drive, I was on the point of finding a screwdriver and/or hammer when it suddenly gave in and fell open. I had the same problem when we left and simply left the key in the flat explaining why. On arrival, the French Windows were not locked with the key but held by a latch as it was not possible to fully shut the door and we were equally unable to close it and lock it. The lighting is dismal. There is also the joy of lights which fuse, hence full instructions on how to find the fuse box and solve it, but in our case no replacement bulbs were available. There were also no instructions for the washing machine or Oven, which had a grill pan which needed constructing and which did not appear to have ever been used. On the plus side the kitchen and bathrooms had clearly been recently renewed and were pleasant enough, although entirely internal rooms with no natural light or natural ventilation. There were other irritations including the right of way past the patio to neighbouring properties. Unfortunately, the initial impact of the problem getting the key, the damp and an instant uncleanly atmosphere did set the tone for our holiday and we could not recommend it to others when considering the overall condition and the price. Previously, we have used controlled holiday lets through private agencies, which promise and provide high quality visits. This is likely to be the future path for us now.
Owner reply:

Dear Gavin, Please accept our sincerest apologies. We feel it is a shame you did not contact us during your stay so we would have done everything we could have to deal with your problems immediately. We do not receive many complaints but we do take them very seriously as soon as we are made aware. Our housekeeper and we the owners do read the clients comments book and do try to respond to demands and suggestions as quickly as possible. Our flat is part of one of the oldest buildings in cornwall and damp is a continual issue for all properties and especially old stone ones which are constantly exposed to the sea and the elements, however we have a very specified and strict cleaning regime to combat this problem which seems to have failed on this occasion and we are terribly sorry about this. The old wooden patio doors are an orginal feature of the apartment but do unfortunately swell and contract with the weather …the trick to closing the doors is to close them together in future we will leave a sign next to them explaining this. The key safe is a little stiff to open i always flick them open using my car key rather than my thumb (its a bit of a knack) we will endeavour to explain this clearer in our initial contact with clients.. Extensive Works are commencing In November which will further alleviate the problem of any damp at all …a whole new roof over both the bedrooms, new windows, a stronger extraction system and new decor and furniture. Apologies once more.

This may have been luxurious when first put up for renting, but needs attention to bring it back to its former status. Not as described is probably the best analysis, due to:- Main problem in apartm was damp which could be smelt as soon as you entered. Towels and bedding were damp on arrival. Clothes became damp. Wardrobe in bedroom 2 unusable due to damp and awful smell. – doors at to be kept closed throughtout 2 weeks Bedroom 2 window cannot be left open – security issue as on ground floor and opens into drive /main access No drawers in bedrooms, so lived out of suitcases. No extraction in shower (fan seemed to be covered) so very damp in there and tile grouting black with mould/mildew. sofa not as in photo and chair had a blanket on to cover dirt. Admitedly Stunning views, close to town, good base for Falmouth & travelling to other places., pictures on site give impression that views are from apt balcony or own patio – when in fact it is a common walkway for apartment 7 and 8. Carers and visitors passing to go to apt 8 several times a day. Other minor problems:- Patio doors very difficult to close.- needs 2 to get all bolts/ locks sorted. Mugs not very good - didnt match and 2 were chipped. No instructions for washing machine. Kitchen is very modern- though some doors ill fitted ,and little storage space for food- unless empty / move stuff in a drawer. A nice touch was the bottle of wine on kitchen table upon arrival – but why only 2 glasses when known that 4 adults booked in. The minor problems wouldn’t normally bother us , but the main problem of damp needs to be addressed. I feel the owners need to try and live in this for a week themselves- just to see how many basic items are missing and how difficult to keep towels dry , esp if weather is not hot enough to keep doors / windows open. If not listed as luxurious – then maybe nowhere to put clothes in bedrooms/ food in kitchen could be excused as an oversight.

Nicely appointed, spacious, lovely views. It was a very cold week in March yet the heating wasnt on when we arrived, and it took us 24 hours to warm it up. It could do with double-glazing of the front windows since it is very exposed and rented during non-summer months. The bedside lamps in the main bedroom were not helpful, poor lamp shade with the wrong bulbs in them. While not filthy, it was far from being clean in the kitchen and we had to pour a bottle of drain unblocker down the shower drain in order to clear it - we had been standing in over an inch of dirty water until we did this on the Monday. Once we had sorted out the heating and the shower and the bedside lamps, it was fine and we enjoyed our stay.

We had a good holiday at the flat which we found clean and well appointed. The views acrosss the estuary are fabulous. We stayed in February and the weather was bright but very cold however the heating in the flat was extremely efficient and we were very comfortable. The adjacent allocated parking space is a real bonus. The town centre is a short walk away where there are good restaurants and pubs to choose from. The main pier for boat trips across the estuary is a 5 minute walk away. The only negative comment we would make is that from the photograhs it would appear that there is a private patio area when in fact it is a single patio shared with other ground floor flats, and there is no partition between the flats. We would certainly stay again on our next visit to the area.

The flat was gorgeous - spacious, clean and fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. Our only problem was opening and shutting the patio doors, which created a problem for my husband and son getting my mobility scooter in and out of the front door.

18th to 25th September 2010 Our second visit to 8 Estuary View, Falmouth, a very comfortable, well-appointed ground-floor apartment with stupendous views over the estuary to Flushing and out, to the right, over towards the harbour – a view my husband loved when growing up and going to school in Falmouth. An ideal place from which to visit family (including our son at present living in Falmouth) and friends. Apart from the odd shower and a terrific downpour one evening, when the bottom of High Street was flooded, our weather was beautiful. Having a car parking space, (though the turning space for a big car is a bit tight), is a real bonus with the town and lots of really good eating places being just minutes walk away. The delicious scones, jam and cream, bottle of milk in the fridge and the bottle of wine awaiting us were all very much appreciated. We hope to return and would certainly recommend the accommodation. Thank you Max and Sally. Keep up the good standard. S. R. and T. (Falmouth) Warren. Stafford.

The location and the view from the apartment were great with good walking acess into Falmouth town centre for restaurants and shopping. We had great difficulties with the freeview and television which, initially, we couldnt get to work at all. Eventually, we managed to get it to work but only black and white - however, it was only for short periods to keep the kids quiet and they got used to watching in black and white ! The other technical difficulty was the boiler - it took me a while to work out that the instructions relate to a remote control device for the boiler which was located on a bedside table away from the boiler ! Even once I had found this, it was complicated - we ended up setting on daytime seeting continuously and just varying the temperature control to suit ! However, all in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - small but lovely and also clean accomodation, great weather and loads to do in the local area.

Wonderful views, convenient position, lovely comfortable apartment and good weather made for a great week. The pictures on the website showed an inviting table and chairs on the patio, which would have been great to have had there permanently - but they appeared, disappointingly, to belong to the apartment next door!!!

Obviously the property has recently been fully refurbished and is in pristine condition. Where it falls down is on equipment - no casserole/veg dishes, no sieve/colander, no serving dishes. Washing machine good but no iron/ironing board. Advertised al fresco dining but no patio furniture. Feel the drain cover by the front door should be replaced fairly soon. Overall an excellent property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location for walking into town is really convenient and the views are amazing. Would certainly like to make a return visit.

we have stayed in Falmouth many times, this was by far the worst property. The view is amazing. The kitchen is well fitted and equipped. The patio! This is a communal walkway to other properties, and is completely overlooked, from the side and above, hardly where you would enjoy a relaxing breakfast or drink. This area and the car park are unkempt, covered in weeds and dead plants, not a great welcome! There was 8 light bulbs broken when we arrived, surely basic maintenance. The shower room had mold growing on the grout and seals. The furniture was generally shabby and worn. We were very disappointed with this property, most of the problems could be sorted with good housekeeping and maintenance.
Owner reply:

Please accept our apologies for the lightbulbs, our housekeeper did have problems trying to change some of them, the issue has now been rectified. Please know that we have made a concerted effort to improve our communications with the housekeeper, and address all the constructive criticisms you have raised. Customer feedback is vitally important to us so we can continue to improve our property.

expected at least one of the bedrooms to be on -suite lighting in second bedroom very poor ,&smelt musty. No door on kitchen so could not keep dog in there at night cushions missing from lounge settee. on the plus side the estuary view had lovely views & was very convenient for the town.
Owner reply:

HI Christine, we dont state that the bathrooms are ensuite, the layout of the flat didnt allow us to make either bedroom ensuite im afraid. As for the musty smell it may not be being aired properly, probably due to the colder weather, turning the heating on would solve this and i will ask our cleaner to open the windows while she is there. It is a very old building though, one of the oldest in Falmouth so we have to bear that in mind. Re the lack of a kitchen door, we wanted to keep it open plan. Apologies if this caused any inconvenience. There should be 4 cushions on the sofa, if there isnt then some have gone walkies, sorry about that. I am genuinely disappointed that you are disappointed, as you dont want to return there is no point in me offering you a discount for next time i suppose? We aim to try to please everyone, sorry we didnt with you.Max

The location is great. We left suggestions for additional features like night stands in one of the bedrooms and better, more complete instructions for some of the equipment in the flat. Overall, the place is roomy and there is always a breeze.

The property is comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen is particularly well set out and provided for. The bed in the main bedroom is comfortable. The second bedroom is essentially a childs room. The view from the front of the flat is spectacular looking over the Fal estuary towards Flushing. It is east facing so the sun is in the morning (in the shadows during the evening). Very minor criticisms would include the need for two bedside lights in the main bedroom and the fridge and freezer are noisy. Other than that, this is a great place to stay. It provides easy access to the centre of Falmouth, but is quiet and includes car parking.

The flat is in a good position, and has a lovely view. Its spacious, with all modern appliances, we had a very enjoyable time and would certainly recommend it and go there again. The one and only thing we feel could be improved is offering internet access, it would make the place perfect!

What a fantastic place! I think Estuary View is the best self-catering accomodation I have stayed in for years. Obviously the view cant fail to win you over but to have it backed up with such a beautifully designed and furnished apartment is just wonderful. We shall definitely be back and so will the people who down to visit us whilst we were in Falmouth!

Comfortable apartment with great view. Appreciated private off street parking space. Excellent placement for walking to shops, banks, eateries, etc.. Easy to leave town for daytrips.

The property was exactly as described on the website - the main downside was the parking space we didnt have a particularly big car but it was very difficult to manouevre in and out. We also felt that that the non-refundable deposit of £50 was a bit steep - it was not a cheap place to stay for a week, surely the rental paid would more than cover any small breakages which may occur? Apart from that, it was very comfortable, only a short walk into town and the views were lovely.
Owner reply:

HiApologies about the parking, when the car park is full it can be a little difficult to manouver. Regarding the �50, i have notified Villa Renters as this should be �25 or you could have opted to pay a �100 refundable deposit. I am awaiting their reply, please accept our sincerest apologies, we will sort this out for you. Kind RgdsMaxine James*updat e*Looking at your booking and confirmed by villa renters that the damages deposit you paid was the £25 damage waiver. Confused as to where the £50 value came from??RgdsMax

Every possible thing was thought of and provided. Being in such a lovely place enhanced our stay. We were a couple not a family so not taking full advantage of size of place but the fact there were 2 bathrooms makes it ideal for a family or 2 couples. Loved the decor. The provision of linen and towels in self catering is a huge plus too. well done!!
