This is the 3rd time we’ve stayed at Castaway - found property spotlessly clean, everything you could need to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and as other guests have mentioned, a real home away from home. And with a fantastic view of the harbour - just perfect :-)Mrs Louise Keen - 29th November 2018
A beautiful house.Nicola Jones - 7th October 2018

Castaway is absolutely fabulous, up to our usual high standard and more. We have stayed in other properties down here but this has blown us away!Jenkins Family, Gwent - 15th September 2017
Castaway is a great house and we have loved it here. With sun loungers out on the decking, full sunshine and a cheeky drink – we could have been abroad! Porthleven is great, everything you need so close to the house.Gillham and Warland Family, Oxford - 1st September 2017
Fantastic accommodation, well equipped, clean and beds very comfy. The Wii was brilliant for the kids and we all enjoyed the board games. Coastal walks are amazing and Porthleven restaurants are all so good. Redman Family, Manchester - 11th August 2017
What a wonderful house. We have stayed at many cottages in Cornwall and this is the best yet. The children really appreciated the games room and it kept them happy on a couple of rainy days.Maturi and Patrick Families, Worcester - 4th August 2017
A really great holiday home – well equipped with comfy beds. Sometimes we didn’t even bother going out – just sat on the balcony watching the birds and village life unfolding below us; that’s what holidays are all about! What a lovely holiday home!Wiseman, Perthshire, Scotland - 30th June 2017
Been coming to Porthleven for fifty years and hope to be coming for many more - Castaway would always be our first choice.Watt Family, Hants - 8th April 2016
We have had a wonderful time here in your beautiful holiday home loved everything about it. You have put so much thought into everything a real labour of love. Thank you so much for creating such a special place to stay we will be back!Blyde family, Blackford, Somerset - 28th December 2015
We've been holidaying in Cornwall for a long time and this is the most comfortable house we have stayed in. It is very well equipped and well thought out.The Ford family, West Yorkshire - 25th September 2015
Porthleven is a great place to stay - central to many areas, a charming yet relatively un-commercialised and unspoilt harbour and a much under-rated beach. The owners have provided a fantastic house to stay in. The views are amazing. Everything in the house is top quality - the fixtures, the fittings, the accessories, absolutely everything. Everything is where it should be, everything works. Loads of extras. Perfect place for us (3 generations) to stay in.Bunn Family, Worcs - 2nd November 2014
Castaway is wonderful, super views, enjoyed looking out from the living areas and bedrooms across the panoramic vista and enjoyed the sunsets in the evenings. Porthleven is very enjoyable to wander around and relax! We have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful property and Porthleven and hope to return again soon.Hancock Family, Devon - 5th September 2014
Really good games room, had lots of fun with the table football and Wii. WiFi works well! Excellent shower and underfloor heating (very cosy). I have been coming to Porthleven ever since I was a baby and have stayed in loads of houses but this has been the best by miles!!! (Matthew, age 10) What a superb job you’ve done with this house – every room is a delight.Haller Family, Gloucs. (Aug 2014, Returned 2015, 2016, 2017) - 22nd August 2014
What a wonderful place to call home for a week! Fantastic house, so comfortable and beautifully decorated - we felt right at home straight away! The games room was a big hit with our daughter, an avid gamer, who enjoyed having her own space away from us boring adults. Castaway's location is ideal, both for the lovely bustling harbour and also for days out. Also eating in Porthleven has been very enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We will definitely return!!Hall and Millington Families, South Wales - 15th August 2014
All I can say is wow! I mean ‘wow'. Castaway is gorgeous! Pictures online looked good the reality was 1000% better! Amazing space indoors and out. A very enjoyable two week holiday spent in the lovely Porthleven and the even lovelier Castaway.Woolford family, Hampshire - 8th August 2014
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.Lesley and Tim Brown
