We can honestly say this is the best place in the UK we have ever stayed! Fabulous sea view, best we've ever had. Everything we need is in "Sea Echoes", we haven't wanted for anything. Really comfy beds. Such a friendly and relaxed area. Alfie the dog has loved his seaside holiday! We have already recommended to so many people. Thank you!
If you want to stay right by the beach then this place is perfect. You can see the sea from the garden and dining area and walk to it in a couple of minutes. It's small but perfectly equipped, with plenty of games for the kids, bbq, garden seating, comfy sofa and armchairs.
The owner Katrina is friendly and accommodating, and the neighbours dogs are friendly too, a big hit with the kids!
Porthtowan is nice and low key and unspoiled, it really keeps the wild feel of Cornwall, but there are enough amenities that we spent 3 days there without getting in the car.
We have been returning to Sea Echoes for years; that alone should tell you something! However I haven’t written a review since our first stay so thought it was about time I sang it’s praises again...
Where to start.. location, perfect, you can see the sea from the garden and the beach is literally a stones throw away as are small beach shop; village shop, fab cafe and wonderful beach bar-Where you can watch beautiful sunsets overlooking the beach with a glass of something cold in hand.
The apartment, it’s exactly what you want/ need from a child friendly/ dog friendly family holiday; we literally can feel ourselves relaxing as we approach Porthtowan down the hill( even the dog starts barking with excitement) knowing that we are nearly at our perfect, happy place, it really is our best week of the year at Sea Echoes.
Katrina the owner is so friendly and welcoming; providing a cream tea ready for you to start your holiday in true Cornish style! The neighbors are lovely; Paul next door is great to chat to with loads of local knowledge. I have never visited a friendlier place than Porthtowan.
From the brilliant communication when booking to the wonderful fresh flowers and beautiful cream tea's awaiting us on arrival our whole stay at Sea Echoes has been fantastic. The apartment is modern clean and has everything you could possibly need, set in a beautiful location walk to the beach, shops, restaurants etc. Katrina the owner makes you so welcome and is more than happy to offer information and help if required. We enjoyed our time so much we booked next year's holiday before we left.
So lets start with Katrina the owner , could not be more lovely & helpful ! I had to rearrange from last year as i had an operation and it was moved with no trouble and just a kind smile .... Arrived with my 3 furry babies ( dogs ha ha ) , a cream tea & dog treats on arrival was a great start ! Place was warm & cosy with amazing views of the crashing waves .. stunning ....Katrina recommended lots of nice places to go & we were lucky with some sunny days ... This is a great little find and i will defo be coming again ! Thanks Katrina & family ! your the best xxxx
Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sea Echoes. Weather was sunny with showers so typical and acceptable.
We arrived to scones, cream and jam with fresh cut flowers on the side...thank you Katrina, The apartment is so close to the beach you can see the sea from the garden, all enclosed so no worries about your pooch escaping, we all had the most amazing time we didn't want to leave and my grown up daughter was in tears...the apartment has everything you could possibly need, my only tiny gripe if it is one is it states apartment sleeps 6 well it does but its a squeeze...comfortably more like 4 I'd say, we went in September when dogs aren't allowed on the beach but that wasn't a problem at all we either let them on later in the evening or went to the dog friendly beaches near by, there was so many places to visit we ran out of time but will defo be back infact its so beautiful we are thinking of moving there, thank you Katrina for an amazing holiday
