                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We booked this Home on the Photos and write up. We thought it looked too good to be true so was overjoyed when we got there and found it was everything that was shown and said. We had a wonderful stay and it was very relaxing. Mawgan Porth is a lovely place to stay, beach is great and flat with soft sand ideal for Children. The House had everything that you need (Home from Home) lots of equipment for beach, Belly Boards,Buckets, Spades etc. I don't think anybody could regret staying there. We have already booked for October.

                                                          Great location, clean property and friendly reception staff

                                                          Highly recommend this place. Reception staff ere very friendly and welcoming. Designated parking in car park for apartment. The property was great. Apartment over the clubhouse which was in a quiet location with views over the course. The apartment had 2 good sized bedrooms both with their own bathrooms - one with a barn and one with a shower. Lounge area was lovely and light with a balcony with small table and seating. Very clean and well presented. Only one minor point for improvement - A set of oven gloves would have been good.. Great base for visiting padstow, watergate bay, lusty glaze, fistral beach etc. Complimemtsry game of God per person a bonus.

                                                          This is the second time we have stayed at Blue Seas so knew what to expect. With the alterations it is a lovely house to stay in. It is a home from home in a beautiful location which we absolutely love. It is peaceful and very relaxing. The house provides everything you need, even our two dogs had a fabulous holiday.
