Just on our way home after staying 3 nights at The Boathouse. I spent some time searching for a place to stay in Looe, but booked this property as soon as we found it. Lovely little place in a fantastic location, allowing almost instant access to the shops bars and beach with literally a couple of minutes walk. It is small, but suited me & my partner perfectly as our base during our stay. Everything has been well thought out and the property works well for an individual or couple wanting a cosy town centre place to stay. The only real downside was that we had to come home, but hope to return again before too long.
We've just returned from a wonderful week at the Boathouse in the heart of Looe. What a fantastic cottage apartment, completely private while being in the middle of the quaint town of Looe. Fitted out and decorated to an extremely high standard, the Boathouse has everything! Ian, the owner is so attentive and his attention to detail is superb. The lovely touches of welcoming flowers, local produce, milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and goodies were a great surprise and so appreciated.
We used the Millpool car park for our overnight parking - free between 6pm and 9am - if you park after 6pm you can stay until 11am the following morning for a couple of pounds, or use the 24 hour tariff of £5.60 for longer stays. We travelled quite a bit during our stay, and most places of interest are well signposted throughout the region.
Looe has an abundance of coffee shops and bakeries, all on the Boathouse doorstep. Our favourites were Daisy's, Papa Ninos, The Sail Loft and Trawlers - most of which were recommended by Ian.
We loved the beach and Banjo Pier - just 2 mins walk from the Boathouse, and the fishing pier, equally close. Plenty to do, no matter what the weather, with shops and lovely walks so close by. Polperro, accessible via the coast path or a short drive is fabulous.
We're already talking about a return visit, and we're still unpacking from this one!
Thank you Ian, and the Boathouse, for a lovely holiday. All the best to you from Gráinne & Louis (Dublin)
Had a lovely time in this cosy cottage - very quiet and peaceful despite fab location in the centre of Looe with lots of shops and cafes on the doorstep. It was very tastefully decorated and had all the amenities you could want, also a very helpful guide recommending some good places to eat, walks etc. Make sure you do the walks to polperro and the Coddy shack - not to be missed!
First experience on airb&b and it was an excellent one, thank you!
Everything related to our stay at the Boathouse was perfect!
We were well prepared thanks to Ian and all the indications he had sent in advance.
Once at the boathouse, shortbread and tea were expecting us and the place looked (and indeed was) so comfortable!
All relevant information was well explained and the recommendations very helpful!
The location was very good in the centre of Looe! We are thinking about staying at the other houses Ian rents in Cornwall which also seem very attractive and far more hidden compared to the boathouse.
We are a bit late with our review but we´d like to thank Ian for a great stay at his boathouse.

Just spent a lovely week at the Boathouse. Great location, it really is in the heart of Looe. Ian, the owner, is very helpful. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits are their when you arrive, as is a bottle of pressed apple juice which is absolutely gorgeous.
The bed is extremely comfy and not only has feather pillows, but a feather duvet as well.
I can certainly recommend this place, and will be returning as soon as I can.
Well done Ian ***** a well deserved 5 stars
Wonderful week in a great house. Brilliant position, moments from the beach and the lovely cafes and restaurants Looe has to offer (would recommend Mama J's and the Old Sail Loft). Lots of beautiful places to visit nearby, especially enjoyed Looe Island. The house had everything we needed and Ian was a brilliant host, would love to return in the future.
Stayed in this fantastic, clean and modern apt Monday to Friday. Location is great ,right in the heart of Looe
Owner Ian makes you feel very welcome. .
We would recommend to anyone to stay here.
Hopefully we will be back.
