Lovely apartment, well decorated and clean. Plenty of room for 5 adults. We have stated in many at Gallinas Point and this is one of the best lucky to have nice weather. Good walks on the coastal path to Lelant and Zennor. Good places to eat, The Loft, Porthminster Kitchen, Porthminster Beach Café and Café Pasta. Will hopefully return soon.
A great stay in a great apartment. Lucky to have had beautiful weather. The balcony gets afternoon and evening sunshine which many apartments we’ve stayed in before don’t have the sunshine on the balcony which is annoying. We will be back to Ithaca for sure. Thank you.
Having stayed in most of the apartments in Gallinas Point over the last 7 years, this is by far the best on the complex. Enjoyed the added touches of the air conditioning and Sono’s music system. Beautifully furnished with every attention to detail. Thank you for a wonderful stay, will be back again soon.
