“Brilliant !”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Seagem is just perfect ! Whether you want a beachholiday [path to the beach right by the door] or a base from which to travel further into Cornwall, you couldn't find a better location. It's also a mere 2 miles from the airport of Newquay and close [but not too close] to the major motorways [thus avoiding a lot of those typical Cornish hilly-bendy-narrow roads]. The house has everything you need and then some.... We stayed for a week at the beginning of September and the weather was gorgeous. What more can you ask for ?
PS. Loved the more than decent wifi, the large tv and dvd player.

“Amazing house, amazing location”

person found this review helpful

We didn't know the first thing about margan porth but it is a fantastic location. Fantastic beach, excellent shops -and a brilliant restaurant 'the catch'. We are used to driving around and visiting different beaches but this was perfect especially as you can just walk from the house through the sand dunes and within minutes you're on the beach. The beach is also level with the shops and local facilities, no hiking up millions of steps or a steep sand dune! If you enjoy walking you can take the coast path either side of the beach which you can see from the house. Also recommend the Camel trail bike ride from padstow, a lovely flat trail all the way to Bodmin. As for the house, it is excellent, not just location but the house has everything you need and we felt we were staying in 5 star accommodation at a 3 star price - excellent value. The view from the lounge is stunning, we enjoyed watching the sunset every night from our sofas., a lovely en-suite with a great shower and the kitchen had everything, including an induction hob! Just one thing to consider is that margan porth is a dog friendly beach, we were unaware of that plus the accommodation next door is dog friendly, however, everyone was very respectful, with no barking first thing in the morning which was good! All in all we had an excellent two weeks at Sea Gem and will certainly be returning again. Thank you to the owners for providing such first class accommodation.

We were very impressed with the house, the view from the first floor sitting room was spectacular!
The kitchen was of a very high spec, & it was of the same high standard throughout the house.
We would definitely highly recommend this holiday home, it had everything.
Thank you to the owners Carol & Anthony for making it feel a home from home!

I have sadly just arrived home after a wonderful week staying at Sea Gem.
The house is simply beautiful.
It is very comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy your stay.
Situated in wonderful Mawgan Porth, you don't need to go far for all your needs. Should you wish to explore North Cornwall, you couldn't be better located.
I think I may have found my "new home from home".

“Lovely house in beautiful area of Mawgan Porth”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Lovely house. Light and airey, warm and very comfortable. We felt welcomed and at home as soon as we entered the house. Lovely views out to the beach and sea one way and out over Lanherne Vale the other. Easy access to the beach and local amenities. The house is like the Tardis much bigger inside than it looks from the outside.

“A real gem”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have just stayed for 3 nights at Sea Gem, in Mawgan Porth. A beautifully renovated house overlooking the bay. Fabulous views and easy access down to the beach. Everything you need for a perfect break is included, even down to the spa style slippers. We will definitely be back.
