The F Family

..... what a location - incredible! We parked the car at the back and didn't move it until the next Saturday!

 So handy for the beach for the children - and for the town! And some of us did some fabulous walks along the cliffs

The house itself was perfect for our needs - you must have put so much care and thought into it!

 The upstairs TV with the slot in DVD player was such a blessing - so that children of different age groups - tired out after a day on the beach - could watch age-appropriate DVDs while  we got their tea ready

 Actually - the three-year-old granddaughter was ecstatic within minutes of arriving when she spotted the Cinderella DVD (she watched it three times over the week)

 I thoroughly enjoyed reading one of your historical novels set in Cornwall - it brought home the history of the place

 The DVDs, the books, the games - you've thought of everything!

 The kitchen was short of nothing - everything we needed was there - the dining room worked well for all of us - we loved the lounge with it's two sitting areas  

The bedrooms were just right - and the TV in each was a bonus

 Well done - it felt like a much loved, much cared-about house and garden. We just couldn't fault the place - we all agreed it was the best house we've holidayed in - in the perfect location in the nicest resort


We all had a fantastic time thank you. The T's loved it and have already given us their term dates for next year. The house is always lovely and gets better every year.


We returned from St. Ives on Saturday having had an excellent holiday. It was our 18th visit to Porth Enys.  The accommodation was superb as always and everyone was most comfortable. May we please book again for the same week next year.


TS  ....... just to let you know we had a very good holiday staying at  Porth Enys its a lovely house, we had stunning weather how lucky were we........


Just to say thank you from all of us for a great holiday. Your instructions were good, we found it and the keys no problem. The house was a perfect size for the seven of us - the extra toilet was a bonus! The rain managed to stay away for most of the week too so that was lucky! 


We returned from St. Ives last Saturday having had another superb holiday. The weather was excellent . Porth Enys was as always excellent and everyone was very comfortable. May we please book again for the same week next year.


Just a quick email to let you know we had a great time at Porth Enys again this year. The weather was especially kind to us with only a half day of drizzle! So, all in all a fantastic stay in St Ives.


It was a great holiday thanks and we even got the weather.  Porth Enys met our requirements perfectly so many thanks for making the property available to us again.  Our son particularly loved the house and the pictures you have around the place!


Yes thank you we had a really lovely stay at Port Enys - it was luxury to have plenty of room and parking spaces but still be walking distance from the town and beaches. We certainly will consider coming back on any future visits to St. Ives.



Just wanted to let you know that we had a lovely time in Cornwall.  The cottage is lovely and in such a good location, we are all feeling fitter from all the hills!  The rain managed to stay away for most of the week too so that was lucky! 


We had a lovely time thank you, and the house was fantastic and in a brilliant position.
St Ives is a beautiful place and we will definitely visit again in the future



Just a brief note to thank you for the cheque which arrived yesterday. Also to let you know we had a really lovely family holiday at Porthenys, and could not have been better located for accessing the town and beaches, also meeting up with friends who were staying at CARBIS BAY. We have all had a great time and enjoyed St Ives enormously and hope to return again sometime soon.

Many thanks again.


Just a little note to let you know we had a fabulous time staying at Porth Enys.  The house felt a home as soon as we got there.  We also had wonderful weather!!  Would it be possible to reserve the house, or make a booking for the same week  next year. 


We had a marvellous holiday at St.Ives last week. Weather was good every day and particularly hot towards the end of the week. Accommodation superb as usual. Many thanks again.

W. W. & D. C. - Hershey, Pennsylvania -
                    "I was very much impressed with your home in St. Ives. It
                    was beautiful and very comfortable. You have done very well to
                    decorate and make the house a pleasant place to stay. The
                    location is ideal. It is far enough away from the pubs to be
                    quiet, yet close enough to the attractions to make us feel part of
                    the town. Overall it was a wonderful holiday. Please feel free to
                    use our comments in any marketing efforts you undertake. 
                    I have already shown our video to two of my close friends, and
                    one has indicated that they would like to visit Cornwall, so
                    maybe next winter they will be contacting you. Diane and I
                    would love to return to Porth Enys. However, I must tell you that
                    we love to travel and there are just so many places in the world to
                    visit that we rarely make a repeat trip. However, we both agreed
                    that at some point we intend to return to our favourites (We have
                    been travelling together for over seven years). Porth Enys is among
                    our top "return" choices."
