Step Inside

The Lookout is a detached single storey coastal apartment that has been thoughtfully created for the holiday highlife. Arrive into the very generous open plan social space that has been designed to evoke the deck of a luxury yacht, including nautical inspired kitchen, dining area set under the full height glass doors with sea views and comfortable living room. Whether sunny stays or during the cooler months, the hub to this home offers a versatile space in which to relax and refresh whether you are nose deep in a good book, whipping up a Falmouth feast in the kitchen or just watching the world sail by. A hallway leads to the contemporary bathroom, perfect for a post-beach soak, and to the two bedrooms. Each bedroom offers the finest linens and comfiest of beds as you dose off to the sound of the sea. 

From your Holiday Door

The Lookout offers a private balcony overlooking the water, accessed from the master bedroom and the living area. From your front door, a gravelled terrace with dining table and chairs and built in BBQ area welcomes al fresco dining. Follow the path just 100 yds to the top of private steps leading down to the beach, a quiet cove where guests can swim and soak up the views towards St Mawes and St Anthony Lighthouse. Falmouth is within easy access of the apartment and offers so much to explore. The Lookout is close to Swanpool and Gyllynvase beaches, both quiet sandy coves with crystal clear waters. Buzzing Falmouth town and the marinas are within easy reach and guests can easily while away a day popping from shop to shop, enjoying delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners and sampling the local pubs and bars. For a day tripper, there are regular ferry services to nearby St Mawes or scenic boat trips along the coast and the Helford river.  For the adventurers in the group there is a host of opportunities to try something new from day sailing, kayaking and paddle boarding to scuba diving and deep sea fishing. The Martitime Museum is well worth a visit, with frequent exhibitions and a chance to transport back to the sailing heritage so important to the town. 

The Lookout is a welcome addition to the Gems portfolio - a cool coastal hideaway for a memorable holiday by the sea.

We have just returned from a wonderful time staying at The Lookout. The apartment was very comfortable and the location beautiful. One of the best things about our stay was having private access to the beach, away from the August crowds. It is a very pretty little cove, surrounded by rocks, with clear water and clean sand. You can look directly out to St. Anthony's head and over to St. Mawes, and watch the fishing and sailing boats go by. The location is quite unique.
