Lovely place with great ambience, and lovely fixtures and fittings. The beautiful art work added to the immediate sence of feeling right at home. Michael was very easy to communicate with, and the location of the place was so handy for the beach, the village, and the pub! Would have stayed longer had there been a few more nights available, or could imagine visiting here again in the future.

We loved our stay at this house!!! The house was cosy, beautifully kept, and we loved the art work! The property was in a perfect location for the beach and all that Porthtowan has to offer.....all within a 5 minute walk to the beach. There wasn't anything that we could find at fault with this property and will definitely be back!

My Fiancée and I had a fantastic time here and didn't want to leave. This is an absolute gem of a place and made for a great first Airbnb stay. Mike was a brilliant host, very responsive and helpful. His home has all the conveniences you could need and is really clean, comfortable, tidy and well looked after. We loved the art collection and the character of the place. I would definitely recommend Mike's place to anyone. It's nicely tucked away to feel private but less than a 5 minute walk from a great little beach and local shops (including surf rental/buy), bar and pub.
