  • "The property was lovely, and very clean, but you need to tell people there are 44 steps to the top floor."

    Also, we tried to get hold of the property manager but she never answers the phone. We wanted to get hold of her because the main bin outside was overflowing with rubbish and there were flies everywhere and it was smelling, we put it out as asked and it was still not emptied, not nice for the neighbours or anyone else. Need to tighten up on these sort of things, because of this I will not book with Sykes again, it is important to listen to these messages, and I am not the first to say this about this holiday let, and you have done nothing.

  • "House was lovely."

    Only two minor issues. The wheelie bin was overflowing and was not emptied on the day stated. We did take items to the recycling however we had to leave one black bin bag inside the property as did not want to leave it outside next to the bin. Also there were no spare bin bags and only one toilet roll in each bathroom provided with no spare. Felt this was a bit tight really.

  • "Appreciate the flexibility letting us change dates after a delay due to sickness."

    House is well located with excellent views and a real novelty being a town house. Garage and parking a great bonus. Would thoroughly recommend. Thanks again.

    Dear Daniel, thank you very much for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to accommodate the change of dates. We do hope that you will come back and stay with us again. Property Owner

  • "The information about this property needs to include details of the number of steps - over 40 from the entry door to the lounge area."

    I found them a real problem. The lounge area layout makes it difficult for even four people to be in one part and chat. Cleanliness - kitchen table had crumbs in the edges and there were crisps on the floor in our bedroom. The “property manager” did not respond when we had a problem

    Dear Anthony, Thank you for your honest feedback. I will make enquiries into the cleanliness of the house and property manager details. I hope this didn't take away from you and your family having a lovely holiday in Cornwall. Property Owner

  • "Booked to provide a base for our stay in Cornwall whilst my son was over from Australia with his girlfriend."

    Their first time in Cornwall and wanted to impress! Superb accommodation that wowed everyone and ticked all the boxes. Other half has always wanted a stay with a sea view and with the added surprise of a private beach, I was definitely pleased with my booking. Very clean and well presented property. Many happy memories from our stay. Thank You

    Dear Paul, we are so pleased that you and your family had a fabulous time in Cornwall and that Oceans Retreat meet your expectations. It would be a pleasure to welcome you and your family again should you revisit Cornwall in the future. Property Owner

  • "Very clean, well furnished and good kitchen utensils, etc."

    Tea and coffee, washing up liquid etc provided. We had a little trouble opening the key lockbox but that was due to no previous experience of using one so I suggest instructions are included along with the key code! A very pleasant and comfortable stay and would highly recommend.

    Dear Louise, thank you for your honest feedback. We will look into include instructions for future guests. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Oceans Retreat and would be delighted to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "This place is wonderful and location perfect."

    They really have thought of everything and we had a lovely stay. Only one negative, feedback for the owners, the person to contact in the event of a problem never answers her phone. We had an issue with bifold doors and tried her number several times, left 2 voicemails and 2 texts. She never got back to me. If you have a problem someone should be on hand to rectify it.

    Dear Janine, Thank you very much for your honest feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Following your comments, we have updated our welcome pack to include further contact numbers if our house manager can't be reached. Sorry if this caused you any inconvenience and we would really like to host you at Oceans Retreat in the future. Property Owner

    There are some great places to eat in Charlestown which was only a 10-15 minute walk away, we had a great week and will definitely book again.

The property

An immaculate three-storey town home resting on the outskirts of Charlestown, Cornwall.

Balcony, Sea-views, Access to Private Beach, Close to Eden Project.

Enjoying a balcony to soak in the costal vistas and a private gated access to a sandy beach, this three-storey home is ideal for friends or a family of six.

Leave your vehicle in either the car port or an off-road parking spot before entering the first floor, where you can unload your possessions into a double bedroom with a TV or the lovely twin bedroom.

Climb upstairs to find the well-equipped kitchen/diner, here the foodie of the group can conjure a home-cooked meal with the electric oven and hob and dine together at the table.

The second floor hosts a master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, for whenever you fancy a quick freshen up or head back to the first floor to indulge in a bubble bath in the family bathroom.

When everyone is in their pyjamas, venture upstairs to the third floor to unwind on the sumptuous sofa in the sitting room; here you can snuggle up with a bowl of popcorn for a film night.

Watch the sunset on the balcony with a crisp glass of wine in hand as you admire your coastal setting before climbing into a plush bed for the evening.

Awaken with the sea-breeze on your face at Duporth Beach, where you can enjoy a cup of tea in a quiet spot; afterwards explore the peaceful village of Charlestown, with a plethora of eateries for a refreshment.

Explore your local attractions; test your swing at Saint Austell Golf Club, meander around Wheal Martyn Clay Works for exhibitions or enjoy a picnic at Pinetum Gardens.

Be sure to visit the impressive Eden Project to see plants from all around the world or take a trip into the port town of Fowey to swim in the clear waters at Readymoney Cove.

For a blissful escape to the coast of Cornwall, choose 10 Clock Tower Court.
