About the property

Five bedrooms. Two en-suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. Sleeps ten.

Captain's House is an immaculately presented home with style, situated in a truly remarkable waterfront position within the heart of Marazion and commanding sensational, totally uninterrupted panoramic views of St Michael's Mount, the causeway, Marazion seafront and beach, and spanning Mounts Bay, taking in Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole.

Set immediately above the beautiful Mounts Bay beach and overlooking St Michael's Mount, guests have easy access to the beach without crossing any roads. This will be very attractive to parents with young children. The house is a privately situated, detached five bedroom and three bathroom seaside residence with an electric gated entrance drive. Of impeccable presentation throughout, styled with a warm Scandinavian look by an interior designer. Captain's House was listed by the 'Observer' in June 2009 as one of the '50 best holiday cottages' in the UK and has also been mentioned in the Family Fun Guide.
