About the property

Small modern duplex apartment, beautiful sea-views for 2/3 Personenn

Downderry is a fully refurbished duplex apartment overlooking the sea with stunning views, located in a converted 8 years ago small Victorian Hotel (6 apartments) and managed by a local company for cleaning, laundry, security and possible repairs. All possible devices are available - from the washing machine cum dryer, dishwasher, the complete kitchen to Digital-TV - and a small music system.

The booking is done via HomeAway directly to the owner.. I, the owner, will organize everything (organization of the cleaning etc.) in Looe. This makes it cheaper for the guest. Possible high commissions for agencies in England are thus avoided.

This apartment has 2 bedrooms. The double bedroom with full sea views, clean beach and harbour, the small single room with a window to the side and is suitable for a maximum of three persons or a cosy holiday for two !!

Suitable for children between 1 year and 3 years due to the stairs in the apartment only after consultation, unless the parents are attentive . Unfortunately unsuitable for disabled due to the steps the indoor and outdoor use.

The apartment is located in West Looe, East-Looe is on the other side of the the river (old fishing port). A bridge and ferry link the two districts. For more extensive information in every travel guide, written or telephone information from me in advance.

Earliest 'check-in' 16 00 clock, latest 'check-out' 10 clock because the apartment is cleaned extensively in the meantime.

Why Rolf R. Elsholz chose Looe

You would find it difficult to find an apartment in Looe with a better view! Our apartment is rather small (about 50msq), but has everything you might need. And you will find many english books and DVDs should you have a rainy day. You will find many tourist-guides, maps and a folder with information on beaches, restaurants and pubs.

Just 100 meters uphill the Hannafore Point Hotel offers you for a small charge the use of the indoor heated pool ,sauna and fitness room.

The apartments own parking is an asset in the high season.

A lovely appartment

  • 5 of 5

What a view from both main bedroom and living room. All that we needed in the way of cooking items etc. Loved the arm chairs for the rainy days in front of the TV watching some of the DVDs that are there, also lots of books for the book worms. Looe itself has not changed much since our last trip 27 years ago. Great place for the beach, walking, boat trips and as it is a fishing port a Great place for fishing boat trips if you have good sea legs. Going to Cornwall would not be Cornwall with out a cream tea. Martins the bakeries just over looe bridge in east looe does lovely fruit scones to eat in or take back to the apartment to make your own cream tea with that view WOW. Thank you Rolf for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment.

Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung ist noch schöner, als die Fotos es andeuten. Wir mußten auf wirklich nichts verzichten - wohl aber auf das Superwetter. Umso mehr war diese Traumwohnung ein Ausgleich für die Regenzeit: Der direkte Blick auf den Hafen von Looe hat einfach Spaß gemacht. Von diesem Ausblick ist man fasziniert, wenn man den verschiedenen Wettern zusehen kann. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung hat mit dem, was man in England Hotelkomfort nennt, rein gar nichts gemein, zum Glück. Hier stimmt einfach alles.

Tolle Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung war sehr schön. Tadellos sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Meine Schwester und ich haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und vor allem bei den Mahlzeiten die

herrliche Aussicht auf Looe, Strand und Meer genossen. Besonders lobenswert waren die

hilfreichen und netten Informationen, die Fam. Elsholz schon einige Zeit vor der Reise hat

zukommen lassen. Diese Wohnung kann ich jederzeit weiter empfehlen.

Kleiner Wermutstropfen sind die hohen, unregelmässigen Treppenstufen zum Parkplatz!

Also sollte Mann/Frau gut zu Fuß sein, wenn er/sie sich für diese Wohnung entscheidet.

Owner's Response: Ja. das stimmt! Es ist wirklich nicht schön diese 50 Treppen - stabil aber unregelmäßig- zu erklimmen. Ich selbst mache immer eine Pause auf halber Höhe (bin 77 Jahre alt), und dann geht es ganz einfach. Das Problem ist, dass das Haus ,wie der Name schon sagt, am Rand eines Cliffs liegt und der hauseigene Parkplatz hinter dem Haus .

Schön gelegene, wirklich gut ausgestattete Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Woche in der schön gelegenen und überaus vollständig ausgestattete Wohnung (prima Betten!) mit ihrem weiten Blick über Hafen und Küste sehr genossen, für die Fitness sorgten 60 Stufen vom Haus zum Parkplatz. Sehr hilfreich waren die vorher zugesandte sehr umfassende Infos zu Anreise, Wohnung und Umgebung.

The apartment has a beautiful, open view accross the sea, harbour, cliffs and beach.

Newly furnished and cozy to Central European standards.

Looe is the ideal place to explore Cornwall- and partly Devon - during your relaxing holiday (see the many tourist-guides in the apartment ).

The town itself is divided by the river : West Looe and East Looe with its many shops, pubs, restaurants, etc . This part is very more lively than West Looe, also due to the well-kept beach. Both parts are connected by a bridge and ferry. Looe is an old active fishing port, with many possibilitys for fishing trips . Both West- and also East Looe have landing piers for boats.

Looe River itself, just above the estuary, has moorings for private boats.

The 'Pilcher' and `Daphne du Maurier 'country with a lot of romance.

The begining of the Coastal Footpath to Polperro is near the apartment, a romantic fishing village. Manor-Houses, parks, old tin mines and caves can be visited. The beautiful coast near Looe can be explore on the public footpaths. Or you can go hiking in the famous "Moors" Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.
