Property description

Rhymney Villas is a generously proportioned and beautifully appointed ground floor apartment ideally suited for two, but can accommodate four. The apartment is conveniently located in the very centre of the ancient market town of Marazion close to its award winning restaurants, character pubs and galleries. The sea and sandy beach with the tidal causeway to the magical island fortress of St Michael’s Mount is just 100 metres away. There are fabulous views of the Mount from the living room, which has French doors opening onto a small patio with palm trees, giving the whole
apartment a light and airy feel.



Accommodation details

Entering the large apartment through the impressive porch door, your eyes are immediately drawn through the kitchen, dining area and living room to the amazing view of the sea and St Michaels Mount beyond.
The apartment is deceptively spacious with period features throughout, and is beautifully furnished and decorated, with lovely artwork to provide light, airy and stylish accommodation. The property retains many original features such as wood floors, panelled doors, coved ceilings, alcoves, and fitted cupboards.
The long living room with its magnificent grandfather clock and writing desk has a comfy sofa and inviting leather armchair, with a pair of high back wooden chairs strategically placed from which to relax and enjoy the outstanding view through the opening French doors.
When the view has become too much, free superfast wi-fi, DAB radio / CD player and a large flat screen smart TV with Amazon & Freeview are available provide alternative viewing and entertainment.

Bedroom:   The generously proportioned en-suite master bedroom features an impressive mahogany wardrobe and antique chest of drawers. The bed with reading lights over, can be configured as a super king, or unzipped to provide two 3’6” single beds.

Although Rhymney Villas is best suited to two guests, there is a pull out double sofa bed in the room between the master bedroom and the open plan living space, allowing up to four guests to stay. However access to the WC / Shower room for everyone staying in the apartment is through the master bedroom, which may be an issue for some.

Bathroom: The en-suite bathroom features a large walk in rain shower, WC, hand basin with illuminated mirror and plenty of storage.

Kitchen Area: The large kitchen is very well equipped with a range of high quality units with granite workspace and fitted appliances including; electric oven and halogen hob, microwave, toaster, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier, and an extensive set of cooking utensils. 
A dining table with seats for four sits close to a bay window with cushioned window seat providing yet another view of the Mount.

Living Area: The spacious living room has a large comfortable sofa and leather armchair to relax in front of the electric stove effect fire and a couple of high back chairs from which to admire the gorgeous views. There is a large writing desk and handsome grandfather clock, plus a blanket box stocked with board games.
Superfast broadband Wi-Fi is provided as well as a 40-inch smart TV with Amazon and Freeview channels, plus a DVD player with a good stock of DVD’s. There is also a DAB radio and CD player.

Linen: All bed linen, plus soft towelling white hand and bath towels are provided; however please bring your own beach towels.

Accessibility: The apartment is on the ground floor with level access throughout all rooms. There are steps at the front door which could make access for a wheel chair difficult, but otherwise the apartment is well suited for people with mobility issues. There are grab handles in the walk in shower. The toilet is not a high seat WC.

We have had an amazing two weeks at No 1 Rhymney Villas. What a gem of a place! It is spacious, decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard and has everything you need (and more) for a luxurious holiday stay. The view literally takes your breath away every time you enter the living area - a perfect and uninterrupted view of St Michael’s Mount through the French doors and from the beautiful outside patio area. Fantastic! Local amenities are excellent with some superb places to eat and drink and a Philp’s Pasty Shop just up the road - what more could you want?! We have already booked for next year! Thank you Paul and Alison

“This has got to be one of my most favourite AirBnB stays. Paul’s place at Marazion is truly amazing with spectacular views in a prime location. The apartment was so comfortable that we felt like we were at home. Having access to Amazon and Netflix was a bonus! Wifi was better in the living room than bedrooms. As a previous reviewer said, there was no shortage of amenities, crockery, cookware, cleaning, seasoning etc. The Kitchen comes with high quality oven, cooker, hood, microwave. And the huge bed was soooo comfortable! Usually it takes a while to get used to your surroundings, but we had no trouble at all! Our daughter loved sleeping on the sofa bed. We met Paul too who was very welcoming. We walked over to St Michaels’ Mount a couple of times, while the tide was low, although did get caught on the way back with the returning tide so be warned, but it was great fun! Every hour there was a tour guide taking people round sharing the mysterious history of the Mount. But also there was story telling for the kids. Marazion itself has everything you need, obviously the sandy/pebble beach, a great playground for the kids, a couple of small shops, art galleries, gift shops, a fish and chip shop, a cornish pasty shop, pub, hotels and plenty of places to eat on the doorstep! I would recommend booking Ben’s Kitchen asap as they were booked for the whole week! The food at the pub was ok, food and service at Hotel Marazion was excellent.

No.1 Rhymney villas was amazing. Such a wonderful holiday home. The best stocked kitchen I have ever come across in a holiday let. Gorgeous comfortable furniture. A bed I didn’t want to get out of..... Well... only to look at the view again! Location was fantastic. It was nice to be away from Penzance but so accessible too with the bus stops to st Ives or Penzance right outside the door. I really appreciated pre-booking speaking to Paul about my non-car options. Perfect for a couple. So much space! Almost took up squatters’ rights...

We were delighted with our ground floor flat at 1 Rhymney Villas probably the nicest holiday property we have stayed in. The furnishings were tasteful, comfortable spacious and practical, everything had been thought of. In particular the view straight out on the mount watching the tide and people coming and going. Local restaurants excellent, parking next to the hotel was close and easy, whilst there is a good drop off at the house.
Thank you, definitely coming again.

I stayed at 1 Rhymney Villas and it was everything we hoped for and more. I actually dont think the photos did the proportions of the flat justice. Everything in the kitchen and bathroom had been thoughtfully stocked. Apart from personal toiletries etc, we had it all. It was so nice to have the patio. We did feel smug sitting outside with our wine in the sunshine! And a brilliant location. Cant find a bad thing to say about the property or the managing company.

My husband and I have just returned from our second stay at Rhymney Villa and can thoroughly recommend it. The property is elegantly furnished, comfortable and has everything one could need for a great holiday. But most of all there is the view, straight out onto the sea and St Michael’s Mount.

Just returned from a stay in Rhymney Villas. Omg it was amazing. I loved the décor. Big beautiful & comfortable with the most amazing view. I would highly recommend a stay here. - Terri Starkey
“It’s a perfect spot for couples or small families, we had a super king bed and our son was on a fold out double in the next room which was really comfortable. The apartment is beautifully presented with nice touches and every detail is well thought out. The view is spectacular from the lounge bay windows. Location is superb a stones throw from all the best eateries and a great chippy. We are definitely booking again!” April 2019
— John, Jo & Adam Chester - Manchester
Beautiful house in a great location in a beautiful coastal village. The view from the sitting room facing directly towards St Michaels Mount must be one of the best along this coast! Would recommend this highly as a base to tour Southern Cornwall. This property is very comfortable with a big comfortable bed and a super bathroom, what else would you need!
