“Perfect”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I found Shellseekers randomly while looking for seaside retreats and I am very glad I did. The apartment has amazing views and is beautifully decorated. The location couldn't be better. We went on some great walks and loved the atmosphere of the little seaside village.
I can't recommend them enough and we are considering renting one of their larger retreats with our family at some stage next year.

“'Wondeful views'”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed for a short break in April and would recommend this accommodation for a couple or small family. Everything is of a high standard and finding a personalised welcome card, prossecco, sconces, cream, jam and milk waiting for us on our arrival was a lovely touch. The view from the balcony is wonderful with bi-fold doors opening out from the open plan lounge/dinner/kitchen making it all light and airy. Everything is to a high standard with even a TV in the bathroom! Everything is catered for to make your holiday a home from home. The added benefit is that it is in a perfect position in the heart of St Mawes with a bonus of having its own parking place.

Liked best: View from the balcony - layout and standard of facilities / accommodation
Liked least: No bath mat provided, shower screen not large enough - although shower was modern and high standard it was difficult not to flood the bathroom when in use.

Had a lovely few days at Shellseekers. House is exactly as in photographs. We were a few minutes walk to centre of town. The furnishings were lovely and house well equipt. We had a breakfast hamper provided. I would highly recommend this property for a couple or small family.

This rental was really lovely. The location was superb, and the best aspect was the views, which we just kept staring at. The internal space was really thought through, giving attention to its interior design, wonderful, and I guess this is what you want, when you are on holiday. Loved it,would recommend, and return.
