As far as modern apartments go, Moonraker is definitely not one to disappoint. This amazing Art Deco style development is situated right on the water of Falmouth Marina, boasting tremendous, uninterrupted views across to Flushing. The architecture of the Slipway building is exquisite, and the large glass walls and windows allow guests to relax with a view like no other! This first-floor apartment, complete with two balconies and two bathrooms is a luxurious retreat and one not to be forgotten.
Stepping into the apartment, guests are greeted with a hallway area leading to all the rooms of the property. At the rear of the apartment is the beautifully contemporary living space. This living, dining, kitchen area is spacious and bright and makes the most of those amazing marina views. The large, glass panelled wall with double doors leading to the balcony, is the epic backdrop of this space. So whether guests are cooking, dining or relaxing, a view of the water is never far away. The interior of this property is furnished to the highest standard and the modern textures and shapes are all complimentary to the style of the building.
The kitchen which is situated at the rear of the space is an excellent size. The neutral cabinet fronts and wood effect backsplash provide this space with depth and texture, allowing it to feel like a separate space. There is an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, so guests can spend little time cleaning and more time relaxing!
Spend some quality time together and enjoy a delicious meal with all the guests seated at the dining area. Positioned within the centre of the space, the dining table could easily be the heart of the room, a place to gather everyone together over some drinks or a board game. But if guests are after a more quiet way to spend the evening, then sit back and relax on the sofa’s with a movie on the smart TV or retreat outside to the balcony to enjoy a warm sunny evening and listen to the water gently lapping beneath you.
At the front of the apartment and with access to its own balcony is the master bedroom. This room has a king size bed so guests are sure to get a good nights sleep after a day exploring. The interior of this room is elegant and tranquil. The feature wall behind the bed, provides a splash of neutral colour and texture, while the iron bed frame, mirrored bedside cabinets and velvet bed throw provide opulence and a hint of hotel luxury. Take some time out and enjoy a book on the balcony, or relax with a loved one watch the stars before heading to bed. There is an ensuite shower room with floor to ceiling, light marble tiles, reflecting the light and making the space feel bright and clean. Guests can enjoy a refreshing morning shower or a quick rinse before heading into Falmouth for the evening. There is also a WC and heated towel rail for extra comfort.
The second bedroom has twin single beds which can also be arranged as a super king if needed. This room takes on a slightly more nautical theme and still maintains all the elements of luxury that can be found throughout the property. The colour pops of bright blue bring character and elegance to the room through the satin bed throws. Behind the beds is a textured, brick feature wall, adding another dimension and subtle neutral colours.
The main bathroom with bath, overhead power-shower, WC and heated towel rail, continues the neutral theme with light marble tiles and stone floors. The large mirror is perfect for guests to ready themselves before heading out for the evening, and the bath is a welcoming retreat for those wanting to unwind more quietly at the end of the day.
The development has a shred slipway, allowing guests to take the water and experience the Cornish coastline from the coast itself! There is also a large garage for guests to use.
Just a short walk or minutes drive away and guests will find themselves at the Greenbank Hotel. Situated below and along the pier wall is the Working Boat Pub. Enjoy a pint with breathtaking views over the Falmouth piers and watch the boats passing by. Continue walking along the water and guests will approach Falmouth town centre via Old Hill, where there is an abundance of local pubs and restaurants, perfect spots for a quick lunch or romantic meal. Falmouth has so much to offer that guests will never be stuck for something to do. There are plenty of boutique shops and art galleries, and a selection of historical attraction such as the Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle.
Whether the break is a romantic getaway, a holiday with family or an adventure with friends, staying at the Moonraker is going to be an unforgettable experience for everyone!
