"We have just enjoyed a week walking the cliff tops and beaches in this beautiful part of Cornwall. The apartment was very comfortable. The beds are comfy, the main bathroom is very spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and the view looking over Carbis Bay are spectacular.
There were only a couple of things we though could have made it even better, there isn't much storage for clothes and no hooks in the bathroom or in the hallway for coats. A black out blind would be handy in the master bedroom due to a security light which shines in through the blind all night.
We have stayed in a couple of the other Gwel Martin apartments, Gold Heights is the most luxurious."
"Golden Heights is one of THE best apartments we've stayed in. Equipped with everything you could wish for, and everything is of the highest standard. Lots of thought has gone into the layout, fixtures and fittings and it really is outstanding. Right from the minute you enter the apartment, that home from home feel is there. Location of course must be mentioned.... with a view that is to die for! Parking space a bonus and so close to our front door made unpacking & packing the car a piece of cake! We're already checking dates for next September. Thank you to the owners of Golden Heights for making our 'holiday home' so special."
