Spent a week here in this fantastic home. The position is unbeatable, right on the superb beach and a few minutes walk to town and drinks etc. We could even watch the daily surfers, canooers and seals from the master bath, let alone 2 of the beds, the lounge, kitchen and massive patio!
The house really is home from home, I can't think of anything missing or not great quality. I'm sure there are still some rooms we didn't explore! David is immensely helpful and answered our every query immediately.
We walked along the cliffs straight from the house to great (well earned) beachbars both north and south.
A great position to visit the lovely local area - St Ives, Porthleven, Mousehole, Landsend and Padstow. Portreath has every facility you could want and is a bit quiter than some more touristy neighbours, which is great. We can thoroughly recommend and will be back soon.
There really are no words to explain how incredible Smugglers Cove Beachside Cottage is. My family and I stayed in Cliff Top last summer and we didn't think that property could be surpassed...oh how wrong we were. Beachside is at such a luxurious standard that it is honestly rather breathtaking. Property aside the location couldn't get better, quite literally right by Portreath beach, it's a short walk away from all the local amenities, including the local bakery and some cracking pubs. Another point that I'd like to mention is how welcoming, accommodating and friendly David and Victoria are. They answered all of my questions before we came to stay and could not have been more helpful, even checking to make sure we got home safely! If anyone is reading this not sure whether to book or not, save yourself the time and book either with these people now! You will not regret it! Thank you so so much to the both of you. We will be back I promise :)
I can hardly stand to write a review for this perfect house and location as I know once people know about it, we will find it difficult to get a slot to rent it again. It was beyond my expectations in every way. As I walked in and saw the view from the master bedroom directly out to sea and listened to the waves from virtually everywhere in the house, I knew we were going to have a magical two weeks. We did. ,The house was so well appointed that we didn’t venture away from the house much other than to the beach directly below the house or to the village a 5 minute walk across the beach. The dog loved his walks in the evening as he could go on the beach after 7pm. The children loved the surfing and building sand castles on the beach. David and Vikki could not have been more helpful in sorting out anything we needed during our stay. It is a magical place where you totally relax and which you will talk about for years to come. I actually wondered after the two weeks if I could ever go back to normal life!
