Nestled right next to one of the best beaches in Cornwall the apartment is just stunning. I've been going to Cornwall for 17 years and this is the best place I've stayed! It's close to Some lovely places like Falmouth, Truro and Newquay. There is hardly any phone signal in the valley which I quite like sometimes but there is great internet in the apartment that reaches the veranda. The living room/ kitchen does a great job balancing the two, the bedrooms are lovely fresh and clean and the bathroom was much bigger then I was expecting! I couldn't be happier with my choice as I took a look at some of the other holiday rentals as we wondered about Porthtowan. Looking forward to being back there soon!
We loved our stay at sandy cove, the apartment is homely and was well equipped with everything we could have needed during our stay. Everything was clean, well presented with fresh white towels and sheets on the bed. Although the phone signal isn’t great, but there is really good WiFi so it didn’t really matter. As we visited in January the weather was not the best but this gave us the chance to do a lot of sightseeing around the area. All in all this is a lovely apartment in an amazing location!
Sandy Cove was a bit of a disappointment on arrival. From the photo's we were expecting a detached cottage. Even though it was called an apartment, no other houses were to be seen on the photo's on the site, so we did not expect it to be in a block of apartments. The front of the building was not really inviting. However, the inside was just like the photo's, very well cleaned, with fresh white sheets and towels and everything you could wish for was in the apartment. The interior is prettily furnished and looks really nice. One disadvantage was the strong "cleaning" smell, which we found slightly offputting, but this gradually disappeared. Other disadvantages were the fact that there was no mobile signal whatsoever in the building and also the WiFi did not work well. Luckily we found out how to reset it, as this was necessary a few times a day. We did have a lovely week and enjoyed the apartment. Also on arrival there were freshly baked scones with jam and clotted cream waiting for us, which was a very nice surprise. The location on the edge of the Porthtowan beach will make it an attractive location for surfers, who will also feel at home at the Blue beach bar and restaurant on the other side of the beach
