Condo/Apartment
We are pleased to offer this lovely, well-equipped and homely self-catering accommodation in the friendly little seaside village of Porthtowan in Cornwall. 'Sea Echoes' is a very popular little ground floor apartment, which is ideally situated in the heart of the village, less than a minute's stroll to the beach. It is a front row property, but set back slightly. The apartment sleeps 4-6 (1 double bedroom; 1 small box-room with adult-sized bunks; metal-action sofa-bed in lounge). You will thoroughly enjoy the sea and beach views beyond the car park. Especially from the garden, which is for the sole use of guests of 'Sea Echoes'. At the right time of year you will hopefully be lucky enough to see the spectacular sight of the sun setting right into the sea - breathtaking.

There are two parking spaces allocated to this property - a rare luxury for a seaside resort! The property is also pet-friendly* (max 4 dogs at owner’s discretion). Treat yourself - have a break by the sea!More

Additional amenities & feature info
THE ACCOMMODATION: Small entrance hall leading to two bedrooms. The first has a double bed with superior mattress, two double wardrobes (suggested this clothes storage is shared with the other occupants), a chest of drawers and bedside cabinet. The second is a small box-room with adult size bunk-beds (with super-comfy thick memory foam mattress toppers) and a tall bedside drawer unit. There is extra sleeping for two in the lounge where the sofa is a metal-action double bed. Fitted kitchen with newly-fitted worktops, microwave, full-size cooker, electric hob, separate fridge and freezer, washing machine, etc. All cooking equipment and crockery, cutlery, glasses etc are provided for 6 people. A comfortable lounge area (open plan with the kitchen) with suite, HD TV with HD Freesat, DVD player and stereo. Updated bathroom that has bath with electric shower over, washbasin and WC. Wooden conservatory containing large glass dining table and 6 chairs. Free unlimited Wi-Fi is available for your use. A payphone is provided in the lounge for guests to use, as there is limited mobile signal (often none) at the property and it is limited in the village - however, if you have an iPhone you can switch on 'Wi-Fi calling', otherwise you may want to check with your mobile provider, as some have an app you can download to enable you to use your mobile via a Wi-Fi signal, for example Three has ‘Three in Touch’. Guests are welcome to give the landline number of the payphone to friends/relatives so they can be contacted during their time in the property (although some guests choose to remain uncontactable!!). You can normally get a mobile signal from the Blue Bar (some networks) just across the car park, or from the beach/coastal path. A highchair is provided free of charge. A basic travel cot is provided free of charge, should guests prefer not to bring their own (please note: no cot bedding is provided).

About the neighbourhood
Cornwall is such a beautiful place and a variety of holiday styles can be thoroughly enjoyed here. Go surfing/bodyboarding, walking along the beautiful South West Coastal Path, or just take things easy and relax in the garden or on the beach – Porthtowan on the north coast of Cornwall is the ideal place for you! Therefore, you don't necessarily need a car. However, it is ideally centrally located to visit so many Cornish attractions so you would need transport if you wanted to visit some of them. For example, beautiful St Ives (just half an hour away), the world famous Eden Project, Lanhydrock House/Gardens, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, the spectacular Minack Theatre, the Lost Gardens of Heligan - the options are absolutely endless!
How to get there
The nearest airport is Newquay, which operates a budget airline up to London. The nearest train station is Redruth, only 10 minutes away. When viewing the Interactive Map below, click the Aerial button for a better view.
