Porth House exceeded all expectations! Amazing views across the bay which constantly changed colour according to the weather, the clouds and the time of day. We felt like the Railway Children frantically waving from the balcony to the GWR train trundling past. From the balcony we spotted fishing boats early in the morning reeling in their nets and then heading off to the harbour. At night the lights of Carbis Bay twinkled in the distance making the whole experience magical. Our short stay, even in November, was truely breathtaking. We would highly recommend this property to everyone.

The balcony at Porth House provides the perfect spot for watching the sunrise and counting the stars...even spotting the occasional dolphin if you are lucky.

September 2018

Stunning views from lounge/balcony. Beautifully presented and well equipped 3 bedroomed, two bath/shower roomed property. Three outdoor eating places. 10-15 minutes walk to fabulous beaches. Quiet location with just the local train rattling by from time to time. Opportunity to burn off those cream tea calories with a step aerobic session to your front door. The climb gets easier through the week but it's best to avoid carrying heavy items.

September 2018

Porth House makes you feel like a millionaire, the views are spectacular, the house is very comfortable and well furnished. The garage parking is a bonus and the use of beach equipment was a welcome find. St ives and the beach is accessible on foot, but be warned the hills are very steep. There are 40 steps up to the property, so only suitable for able bodied people.
