Guest Reviews

"Wonderful location, we spent time just sitting on the balcony enjoying the incredible views, or walking across the beach to the Blue cafe for a delicious cappuccino. "
A Martin, March 2024
"No 1 The Beach is a beautiful, well equipped apartment. We stayed over Christmas for a quiet, relaxing stay and that's exactly what we got. Stunning sea views and lovely beach walks. Everyone we met was so friendly."

"The most amazing place to stay. Awesome views and great location."

"We had a wonderful week here. We loved the living space with wonderful views of the beach. The balcony was also great. Overall very comfortable, spotlessly clean and loved the sound of the sea.

"The property was immaculate inside with all the facilities we needed for a comfortable week away from home. It was a long journey down but the view from the balcony alone made it worth the drive. It also proved a fantastic option for our 15 month old who is not yet walking as she could get around without the worry of stairs. We loved being able to hear the ocean all the time and see it from every room. Porthtowan was a stunning Cornish village, with all essential amenities and amazing shellfish at The Unicorn On The Beach as well as good kids' choices. There is a lovely ice cream place and a playground as well for the kids which our 6 year old loved. We were very sad to leave!"

"This was our second time here, and as previously we were not disappointed, beautiful apartment with stunning views. A bit cold inside on arrival this time (due to being empty during lockdown) but the following morning very warm. Having the surf room to rinse and dry my paddle board is another great touch. Will definitely stay again."
