“Clean, comfortable apartment close to the beach”
Reviewed August 17, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had everything we could need for a care-free holiday. The lovely beach is a one minute walk away so not far at all to carry all our wetsuits and windbreakers. There is a cafe just by the beach for snacks and ice-creams. The Bluebar overlooks the beach and does really nice meals which are a bit different from your usual pub grub - a really relaxed atmosphere but did get busy. The weather was good whilst we were there so didn't explore the area much but will do the cliff walks next time we go! Booking the holiday was really straightforward and Caroline very helpful.

“Perfect beach holiday rental”

I just stayed in the Palms with 3 friends (all in our late twenties). This was our second trip to Porthtowan so we were already in love the place and the apartment only exceeded our expectations.

There seems to be a fair amount of good value accommodation in Porthtowan but I reckon the Palms is unbeatable. For such a low cost, the standard of service is very high. We loved the binder of local information, especially the information on local walks, that is invaluable if you don't know the place - especially when there is no mobile reception! Also, when I text Caroline to ask her something she replied straight away.

We stayed in another Kingsley cove apartment before and the Palms is more spacious somehow, despite the identical floor plan. And very very clean! I think it is the first time I haven't washed the crockery in a rental before I used it, that's how clean everything was!
