“We had a wonderful holiday.”
Visited The Lizard (superb, unspoiled, two good cafes near lighthouse, good shops in village).
Visited St Ives. Parking is pathetic in St Ives, so we parked for free in Long Rock (near Marazion) and went to St Ives on the bus (using senior bus passes for free) - very good journey. St Ives is superb in every way except for parking.
Visited Penzance (very interesting) and Mousehole (superb in every way). Newlyn is not worth visiting.
Visited St Michael's Mount (superb building, and the gardens were truly amazing).
Visited other places too.
The apartment was very good. Really enjoyed the view from the lounge/balcony - watching people walking to St Michael's Mount, and the little boats too - watching the local sailing club go out - watching the tide go in and out - watching the Scillonian III arrive and depart from Penzance. Walked on Marazion beach every day.
The location of the apartment was excellent, what with good views from it and easy access to main roads for getting about and hand Morrisons/Sainsburys/Tesco just a mile or two away.
I suppose everything has a downside. With the apartment it was the locks and doors to get in and out - we did manage to unlock and open all three doors (one to the main building - code, one to the apartment itself - code, one to the balcony - key) and to open the key safe to get the key, but all were difficult and stiff; however, we soon got used to using the balcony door with the key and ignored the other doors, but all this did NOT spoil the holiday. Also, there is an issue with the parking - the spaces were poorly identified and need new lines and numbering - we had to put notes on other cars windscreens to ask the owners to park more tidily; again, this did NOT spoil the holiday.
