The apartment has a smart spacious kitchen, fully fitted with everything you'll ever need, along with a breakfast bar.
The 23x20ft. double picture windowed lounge, with its extremely comfortable chairs and wonderful sea views, has a 40 inch flat screen colour television, a DVD player and a VHS video player/recorder.
The dining area within the lounge contains a large maple dining table and six chairs, while outside on the south facing patio, and overlooking the bay of Mawgan Porth, is a delightful iroko octagonal table and six chairs for outside dining or just sitting with a glass of your favourite beverage.
Wi-Fi broadband is also available free of charge for fair e-mail usage of up to 5Gb per week.
It is located close to the golden sandy beach of Mawgan Porth, which was named as the sixth top beach holiday in Europe by the Sunday Times.
Availability is weekly from April until October inclusive.
The accommodation is non smoking and no pets.
It's only a five minute walk from the quiet location of Carne Crest to the wide and sandy award winning beach of Mawgan Porth, where you can surf, explore the rock pools and caves, make sandcastles or just chill out and relax - you deserve it.
A few minutes walk across it (or drive and park) brings you to the village and its amenities, which include Betty's the newsagents which sells beach accessories and surf boards, ice creams, pasties, sweets and souvenirs too.
Next door is King Surf where you can book surfing lessons and learn to really ride those exciting waves.
There's also a surfing goods shop, Disco Beads for all your fun jewellery needs plus Kara and Dave’s wonderful hand made gifts shop next to the superb pitch and putt and crazy golf.
On the other side of Betty's, and right opposite the beach, you'll find the 'Catch' cafe/restaurant which serves up delicious food plus great beers and wines, all at a very reasonable price. It's open too from early until late.
Across the little river bridge is the fish and chip shop. Next door is The Merrymoor pub and restaurant which is situated right opposite the beach too. It has lovely views for you to take in whilst you enjoy great and reasonably priced food. There is also a large garden for outside eating and drinking and where the children can safely play.
Opposite the beach is a car park set back out of sight, but just a two minute walk away, allowing easy access to all the amenities.
Well, all of that’s not bad for a small village, is it?
Two miles south is Watergate Bay, well known for Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant. The Extreme Academy for Water Sports takes place on its extensive beach.
A drive of four miles north east towards the pretty fishing port of Padstow - famous now for Rick Stein's restaurants - brings you to St. Merryn, where you'll find a post office, a small supermarket, a newsagents and a surf shop. Alongside these is a Chinese takeaway, a petrol station and garage with a hardware shop attached, a bakery, Olive's restaurant and Rafferty's pizza restaurant and takeaway. Just up the road is Ninn's Tea Room which is well worth a visit for breakfast, lunch or tea. Beside the crossroads is Waves restaurant and next door is the Farmer's Arms, which serves restaurant and bar meals. Further along from here is Rafferty's restaurant. A short distance in the opposite direction brings you to another Rick Stein establishment, namely the Cornish Arms.
Fryer Tuck's fish and chip shop completes St.Merryn's local amenities. This is, in our opinion, the best in the area. If you wish to eat in, rather than take away your food, there is a pleasant free indoor seating area, available adjacent to the shop and which seats approximately thirty people.
