Portscatho is a beautiful first-floor apartment at Helford Passage, just moments away from the Ferryboat Inn. From the courtyard, pop up some steps and you're home. Step through into the lounge and you'll have a beautiful view of the Helford River. Throw open the window and listen to the chatter from the Kiosk and the gentle lap of the water.The living room, decorated in a pale pink, is warm and inviting. There are two large comfy, suede sofas, and a unit full of DVDs and games to keep the little ones occupied. You'll find the dining table, with two long bench seats, large enough to serve a banquet. And the kitchen is well-enough equipped to prepare one! You'll find all the essentials here, plus a few extras you might only find in your kitchen at home.
The master bedroom also has stunning views of the river. There's a king-size bed and a large built-in wardrobe. You'll find a full-length mirror tucked behind the door - ideal if you're having a bad-hair day and just don't want to look! There's a vanity unit in here and also a heated towel rail. The second bedroom has a set of twin beds and another built-in wardrobe. The third bedroom, decorated in warm yellow, has two sets of bunk beds, and yes, another built-in wardrobe!The family bathroom, tiled in gleaming white, and with rich, earthy floor tiles, has both a bath and an overhead shower. There's a second, separate toilet, and both of these rooms have heated towel rails to keep all those beach towels warm and dry. And if that wasn't enough, you'll find another walk-in shower cubicle, so plenty of hot water in the mornings. As an added extra, we are now supplying each guest with one bath and one hand towel, at no extra charge.
There's also a hidden gem in Portscatho... Unfold the wooden staircase and upstairs, in the beautifully converted loft space, you'll find the den. It's got a sofa, squashy bean bags, a flat-screen television, DVD player and a Playstation. It's a space tucked away from civilisation and ideal for the big kids in the family. Around the corner, you'll also find an office space with a large desk and computer with WiFi access. Perfect if you're forced to bring work away with you, or if you just want to check Twitter.
And for bookings of one week or more, we'll have a welcome pack ready for your arrival - a bottle of locally made Helford Creek fruit juice, Cornish filter coffee, Smugglers tea, Cornish biscuits, a few sugar sachets and a pint of milk.
You'll have shared use of the heated outdoor pool, and uniquely, there are two spaces for Portscatho in the residents' car park. You will need to leave your car in the car park, and walk down one flight of steps, and then up one more to gain access to your property. You can, however, drive through the complex and pull up outside the apartment for unloading your luggage or shopping. There is a returnable £100 deposit against damages on this apartment.
