Perfectly located in the historic heart of Falmouth within easy walking distance of everything the town has to offer. Loads of space inside and great harbour views outside from the two balconies. It’s beautifully decorated, well-fitted out, with two bathrooms and secure parking for two cars. Falmouth is great and this is a great base to see it and the rest of Cornwall.

The space

This is a very spacious apartment. The large living/dining area comfortably accommodates two sofas and a six-seater dining table. At one end it leads into the well-equipped galley-style kitchen and at the other end where it’s sunniest there is a set of wicker chairs, just in front of the sliding doors leading on to the large main balcony.
There are two substantial bedrooms, both with lots of storage space. The main bedroom, with double bed is en-suite and also opens onto its own balcony. The other bedroom can be set up as twin or double and is adjacent to the second bathroom. Both bedrooms have great views.

Guest access

Boscawen has secure, underground parking for two vehicles. The garage is off the main entrance way to the Packet Quays and is opened by a secure keycard. Once in the Parking bay it is a small walk up two flights of steps to the front door.

Interaction with guests

I live locally and so I am quickly available. If you need any help or local information, my number is ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) and there is a lot of local information inside the property.

Other things to note

It’s hard to overstate the convenience of the location. A couple of minutes walk down the High Street and you can be on the Prince of Wales Pier ready to take a ferry to places like Truro, St Mawes and other villages and coves all over this part of Cornwall. Keep walking and you have great shopping, and so many restaurants, cafes and pubs to enjoy, as well as museums and galleries. Falmouth has a real vibe these days. In the apartment itself we have put a real effort into producing a comfortable ‘home from home’ with original paintings, prints and even Cornish books. We’re new to AirBnB but not to looking after guests, and we’re so pleased at how many have commented so favourably on this, adding that little extra to their stay.

Great location, large clean spacious apartment despite development looking rather dated and shabby from outside. Great to find a well equipped kitchen. We made much use of the local ferries just down the road and used our car very little during our 10 day stay. However the parking was VERY tight for our large car and this prevented the others in our party parking in the “2nd” space - we were lucky to be offered the use of a separate space by a neighbour as on street parking is not a viable alternative.

The flat was smart, spacious and comfortable. It seemed like it's never been lived in, so it lacked a little of the homeliness one often enjoys with airbnb, but for space and comfort it is outstanding value. The location is brilliant, right at the top of the high street, but very private and quiet at the same time. The view is gorgeous. On a Saturday morning in late October I was tempted to just sit and watch the sailboats and small craft go by in the harbour. Janet provided detailed info on how to get into the flat, and was even very patient with me when I thought I had failed to bring the information with me. Falmouth was a revelation: very lively, with good eating and drinking nearby, as well as the usual beautiful coastal sites nearby. Seriously considering going back same time next year.

The apartment was as described, as 4 adults we could move freely. Location good, for restaurants and ferries. Would recommend this apartment.

This was one of the highlights of our holiday! Perfect location with the High Street just up a steep set of steps with cafes, restaurants, shops and access to Falmouth waterfront just minutes away. We drove into the garage, after excellent directions, and didn't move the car for the next 5 days. Janet was the perfect hostess and we enjoyed every aspect. Totally recommend that you consider this property.

Great place to stay - 5 mins walk into Falmouth. Great views from the balcony of the harbour and river. Quiet location and access to small beach was nice. Flat was just as described and great for a weeks family holiday.
