“Stunning property for a truly relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 23 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have just returned from a weeks holiday staying at "Seashells" and couldn't recommend it enough. The owners who stay locally met us on arrival to show us around the house and they couldn't have been more helpful. We were really impressed that they had even thought of putting some fresh milk in the fridge for our arrival - if you arrive after the local shops closing time and are a bit of a tea or coffee addict you will really appreciate this foresight.
The property itself has been lovingly and tastefully decorated throughout and is equipped with everything you could possibly need to truly make this a "home from home". There is also a small garden with wooden patio furniture and a BBQ at the back which feels very secluded, a perfect place for sunbathing or a glass of wine in the evening.
The house is conveniently located with the beach, shops and local pubs / restaurants less than 5 minutes walk away. The scenery along the South West Coast Path from Portreath towards Hayle is absolutely stunning and a Cornish Cream Tea at the Hell's Mouth Cafe along the way is highly recommended.
We have enjoyed a fantastically relaxing week and hope to come back.

“Fantastic!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I can honestly say that if this was my house I would not let it out. It is lovely. Full of lovely homely touches and beautifully decorated. I think the kitchen had more equipment than my own home. Laura and Barrie were there to greet us and gave a really helpful handover. They were really friendly and genuinely helpful. It is in a lovely spot, right on the quayside at Portreath and right next to the beach. There are a couple of pubs in the village within a 2 minute walk plus a lovely fish cafe/bar also within 2 minutes walk. I have tried to think of something that might have made the house better and I can't. None of us wanted to leave the house it was so comfortable and homely. If I wanted to say anything it would be that if the house was fully occupied (it has three bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin and 1 single) then another toilet would be useful but that is not a criticism at all. It would just make the bathroom run in the morning a bit quicker! There is no mobile phone coverage in the area for Vodafone or O2 but the house had free wifi so we just connected our phones to the internet and stayed in touch via email or "Whats App" (the web based messaging service). We come from Kent and have family living in the area and we will definitely use the house again next time we visit Cornwall. I just can't think of anything negative to say except for the weather as it rained every day but that did not detract from the lovely house. By the way, the house also has a garage for use by guests. Thank you Laura and Barrie for making the house so lovely!

“Great house in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The house is beautifully decorated and furnished and is very well equipped. The location is great with a lovely view of the harbour and a very short walk to beach and shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.
