About Marie-Louise Lopez

I have been successfully letting 3 Beaches as a holiday home for some years via a well known management company . Now I have relocated to Falmouth and have taken 3 Beaches under my own management.

I hope you will enjoy this very special home as much as I do & many loyal guests who return year after year .

Where ever I travel & live in the world ,this beach house is very hard to better , going to sleep with the sound of the Sea and waking up looking at the Ocean has to be one of the very best things.

Marie-Louise Lopez purchased this house in 2008

Why Marie-Louise Lopez chose Falmouth

3 Beaches has it all , sunny south westerly facing position overlooking the most beautiful bay with 3 golden sandy beaches all just minutes from the front door. The sea can be gazed at from any window, including from bed.Looking out to sea feels like everything has been left behind .

Then , for a change you can walk into Falmouth town in 10 minutes, for some the best restaurants , pubs , cafes in the south west which suit every need , a world class Marina ,the National Maritime Museum & this year the Tall Ships !

Not forgetting the stunning Harbour location with ferrys to take you on some of the most beautiful boat trips you will take , I am as you can tell very enthusiastic about 3 Beaches and Falmouth, we have never scored under 99% for location with guests recommendations.

What makes this house unique

There are only so many properties built in this location in Falmouth , making 3 beaches a rare property that has so much to offer for all members of the family .You can park your Car for a week and do everything on foot. Walk to the beaches ,into town or catch a ferry to the Helford , St Mawes or to Truro. From the house walk the coastal path as far as you can . Walk up to our own Castle at the end of the road ,Pendennis Castle built by Henry 8Th & now run by English Heritage ....Short car rides for some of the best Gardens in Cornwall , Trebah , Glendurgen .The Helford river to explore and to many stunning beaches to mention .

One of the best HomeAway rentals we have had anywhere

  • 5 of 5

Coast Guard Cottage is roomy, comfortable, very clean, and well equipped. The view is very good. Louise is a gracious and helpful host. The cottage is within walking distance of the high street, the harbor, the maritime museum, beaches restaurants, the castle, and the Falmouth Docks Railway station. We highly recommend it.

Lovely as Ever

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at Three Beaches, which is becoming a lovely "home from home". A big tin of M & S biscuits welcomed us, along with milk for hot drinks and a vase of fresh flowers. The bathroom towels are now big soft sheets you can warp yourself in...bliss. We can't wait to see how the proposed renovations other reviews have mentioned add to this perfectly located cottage.

Well Located Home with ever changing views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Three Beaches. An easy walk into town or along the beach front. It was a pity the weather didn't allow for much though. The house was very clean and well presented. But as others have pointed out it needs some maintenance. Most of the windows don't open any longer and there is a leak in the sunroom roof that needs fixing.

But those few things aside it's a good base to experience southern Cornwall from. We took the ferry to St Mawes for lunch and drove down to the Lizard. Every day there were always a variety of ships anchored off the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Pahia Its very useful to get feed back. The windows do open but this summer there seems to be a knack , earlier visitors (as you mentioned ) flagged this up early during their stay and we went over to show them the new "knack wiggle " that was required, this is a new defect and will be addressed during our maintaince down time in the winter. The sun room leak was from the damage endured during a very bad storm in July , which caused damage to our sunroom roof (all houses on the drive were hit) and we managed to get it "fixed" ,with no further leaks for the summer , as you can imagine with our heavily booked summer we can't replace the roof then , however it will of course have the full repair this winter. Just to confirm we do a complete overhaul to the cottage every winter and we have Im afraid been caught out by extreme weather over the summer , as you can imagine our seafront position holds no prisoners . I hope this did not detract to much from your enjoyment and you could still enjoy the special location and the above average furnishings and fitting s in our cottage. Regards Louise
