I booked the apartment at fairly short notice as our party needed a base for an ultra marathon running event that my husband was participating in.
The online booking process was straightforward and the direct communication between the owners and myself prior to our arrival was excellent. The apartment can only be described as stunning. Very well equipped and beautifully decorated, furnished and presented. It suited our needs perfectly.
As we were only there for a short stay and specific purpose, sadly we didn't have much time to explore Porthtowan itself but the beach is within easy walking distance and we enjoyed a fabulous breakfast at the cafe on the beach front. We also noticed a pub and a convenience store, both a short walk from the apartment.
Unfortunately for us, the weather was terrible all weekend and we decided to cut short our stay by one night due to the impending arrival of storm Imogen, which gave Cornwall such a battering. Watching the storm roll in from the warmth, comfort and safety of the apartment was pretty spectacular though!
My husband and I plan to return another time for a longer stay and, fingers crossed, good weather so that we can make the most of the beautiful sandy beach, surrounding coastal path walks and other local attractions.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and look forward to a return visit.More
