What a beautiful place to see in the new year! Another lovely stay at Castaway. As always, immaculately clean and everything thought of for your comfort, with the addition of some festive touches – great Christmas tree!

Keen Family,

We spent a lovely week at Castaway over Christmas. Our kids are 5 & 8, so the games room was amazing for them. Lots of space and everything we needed plus more – finally a house with sharp knives so we could actually cut and cook! We have already booked for next year. Thank you for sharing your property – can we buy it??!

Mrs Hannah W,

We have stayed in many properties in Cornwall over the years, but Castaway may be the best yet – so cosy and comfortable!

The D,

Extremely happy with this property. Views are lovely with spectacular rainbows – yes it did rain! Wonderful holiday!

Williams & H,

Castaway has been a delight, even with a few wet days. There is plenty here for us all to enjoy, with ages ranging from 6 to 76! We appreciate the thought that has gone into making this house a home. Like many previous guests, we all want to own it!

Previous Customer,

We have recently returned from a weeks stay at Castaway in Porthleven from 20/9/19 to 27/9/19 I would like to say what a wonderful property which by far exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we were likely to need and more. It was exactly as described in the Information about it on line. I would not hesitate to return or recommend it to family and friends. We really enjoyed our stay there. Many thanks

Jacqui A,

House very comfortable and spacious. Felt like home-from-home with added luxuries – the bathrooms especially good! Will miss the views – the night lights around the harbour are lovely!

Bunyan Family,

Lovely house, everything we needed and more! Perfect games room for our 8 year old and plenty of good games for the older ones! We have been to Porthleven many times but the views from here are the best ever.

The S,

Just wanted to say we spent a fantastic week in Cornwall at the Castaway property in Porthleven. The owners have done a great job with the renovation and it felt luxurious as well as light, bright and airy. The views were every changing with spectacular sunsets. A lovely home from home that we would recommend to anyone.
