About the Owner

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 my special place to be.

We have just returned from a lovely 5 nights stay at Three Beaches. The location is perfect for town and the beaches, which were right on our doorstep. There were 4 adults and a small pooch. There were lots of little extras which made the cottage a home from home. Books, DVDs and board games to keep you occupied in bad weather, not that we needed them. There are also essentials for the dog (bowls, tinned food and poop bags) in case you have forgotten anything. The log burner is a lovely touch and made us feel toasty in the evening. We had lovely lemon drizzle cake waiting for us, together with milk for tea. The cottage has a sweet stepped garden to the rear which is enclosed, although the terrace at the front with the sea views, which are echoed from each window at the front, is the main outdoor feature. The steps down to the beach are opposite the house, with Castle Beach being a mix of sand and rocks, perfect for dogs and rock pooling, it adds about 15 minutes walk to get to Gilly Beach cafe, but that is only 15 minutes by the footpath so we worked up an appetite for breakfast each day. All in all an outstanding stay. A couple of things I would do differently when we go back though; as we have blackout curtains at home the curtains let in more light then we are used to, so I will bring a sleep mask. Also, I'm used to large bath sheet type towels and the ones supplied, although lovely and plush are smaller so will bring a couple from home. We can't wait to go back.

Very cosy and well appointed property. It was spacious with light airy rooms and a view to die for!

  • 5 of 5

It was in easy reach of everything, town, docks and beaches, while the Tesco Direct was a boon. We didn't look for a street map as I had one, which was a great help initially finding our way about.

I know the area quite well but my friends didn't and really enjoyed their stay.

LANDLADY from hell

  • 1 of 5

We rented the property to attended our daughters wedding there where three staying in the property other than the night before the wedding, after the first night we received an email advising us that we could not hold any gatherings or party's over 4 people , for found this odd has only three people and been in the the house at this point. On the morning of the wedding we had bridesmaids round to get ready but not stay, We did leave a window open upstairs the landlady let herself into the property walked around taking photos l feel this was totally out of order. The house is well positioned with great views the road out side is noise and busy.The patio furniture is child size and unexceptionable to be of any use there is nothing of any comfort to sit on so we sat on our beach chairs.The furniture in the sun lounge cheap and nasty very uncomfortable,the spare room beds small and again uncomfortable,the back yard was left dirty and untidy. We where given no change of bedding or towels in the 12 days we where there. We have been accused of damaging a dressing table the complaint arrived 6 days after we left and my wife who left the house spotless is convinced it was not there when we left. Finally she appeared on the doorstep at 10 am for an inspection on the day of our departure!!!

Only 10 minutes walk or 5 minute scooter (children) to the shops, gallery's, bars and restaurants. Beaches on your doorstep to enjoy at any given moment and a simply stunning view at all times.
