Careema is a beautifully renovated property having been given an extensive refurbishment during 2019, including a brand new kitchen and new decor throughout. The open plan living area and balcony beyond has majestic views from the Idle Rocks and Summers Beach to Place Manor and the harbour. If the plan for your holiday is relaxation then try sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the bustle of a busy village harbour, little blue passenger ferries heading over to Falmouth and the sound of waves lapping against the harbour wall.
St Mawes is one of Cornwall's most desirable holiday destinations and the stunning harbour surrounded by lovely local shops, restaurants, bars and hotels is a constant bustle of vibrancy during the season. There is a never ending variety of boating to keep the view changing - kayaks paddling out of the harbour, regular ferry passenger services to Falmouth and other destinations up the Fal estuary, the constant bustle of sailing boats, both large and small, and shipping movements further out to sea will keep all amused. During the winter it is a quiet, peaceful village that rarely sees frosts or snow.

Bunk bedroom with separate single bed and chest of drawers and wardrobe.

Our stay at Careema in St Mawes was wonderful. The views from the lounge and bedroom windows are utterly stunning, we enjoyed many hours sat on the balcony watching the world go by. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated. The only thing missing in our eyes was a little welcome basket (bottle of wine, tea etc) as it's not a cheap place to stay and that has been our experience in other similar properties. But that's the only thing, otherwise we had a simply wonderful stay and Careema is a delight. We hope to come back in the future.
I booked Careema for the view. It was delightful to sit on the balcony and enjoy watching life on the water and thoroughfare.
A great location for a short break.
The apartment is well fitted out and the beds comfortable.
The only negative would be that both my daughter and I found the pillows too hard.
Great stay in St Mawes. Such a convenient position. Only drawback was early morning deliveries to the Coop downstairs. Good for an early morning dip though.
Lovely, super location.
Had everything you would expect.
One observation was that the supermarket deliveries arrived quite early in the mornings, so had to remember to close windows.
We were so impressed with everything about Careema, weve stayed in St Mawes for many years and this was far above any of the other holiday homes we have stayed in. The apartment was super clean, very modern and comfortable and we loved the modern kitchen but the main draw for us was the view of the harbour from the balcony, just stunning. If we had one niggle it would be that being above the Co-op I was woken far too early every day by the delivery lorry, I am a light sleeper though and it did not detract from our overall enjoyment.
Thank you Careema & St Mawes!
Great location and to sit on the balcony and watch the world happen below is great. All places have down sides and we were early risers and needed to be as CO-OP delivery every morning at 6.30 by guys who knew how to make a noise.
Beds very hard and as we were just two due to the restrictions we used other bedding to try and soften them.
Otherwise good flat and relaxing.
>> Outstanding View over the harbour
>> Comfort and cleanliness
>> Noise very early each morning from the shop (5.30am?)
>> Lower the carpet strip into the kitchen (very painful to stand on)
>> Spruce up the balcony
>> Look at the TV signal.... It dropped out a few times.
First holiday for 18 months was thoroughly enjoyed in excellent, safe and comfortable accommodation with a world class view! Very helpful owners and agency, Cornwall Cottages. Many thanks.
beautiful flat with lovely views of St Mawes harbour. Very well equipped and comfortable. We would definitely go back.
