“Easy beach access”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Good location 10 mins level walk to Porthtowan beach. Plenty of living space plus lots of children s toys available.
On the negative side, the property is next to a fairly busy coast road which we found quite noisy. There was no clothes storage in the front double bedroom and although it is normally used as a study/ office, it is being advertised as a bedroom and should be furnished as such during a letting period. There were 2 large pieces of gym equipment in the lounge which restricted access to opening the window. There was no trampoline or sandpit, which was listed as being at the property. We had to mop up a lwater leak from the fridge freezer on a daily basis. The bathroom flooring was very stained . So although the location is good, I was disappointed in the overall standard of the property compared to other holiday rentals I have experienced.

Management Response

Thank you for your review the room in question is a snug/ quiet room that we make into an additional bedroom when we have full occupancy which is why there is no clothes storage. But as you mention there is plenty in the other bedrooms.

“Perfect house in lovely location.”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

House is well equipped and very clean, and well maintained. Beach only a five minute walk away which was very good for bodyboarding and sunset photo opportunities. Recommand a internet shop for main essentials then the small local shops are sufficient. We all had some excellent days out from this house without having to travel too far.

“Good villa in a good location”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

The holiday villa is set in a lovely location with a nice beach nearby. The locals are friendly and the two pubs close to the villa are quiet enough for family's to have have a relaxed meal and night out. The villa its self is lovely and well maintained it has nice spacious rooms and enough parking for four cars.
