Perfectly perched on the cliff top above the beach, Karrek Beach House is a stunning contemporary house sleeping 6 + cot.
With panoramic sea views from all major rooms and a lovely interior, this is a rather special holiday home. It is a great place to stay whether it's a warm Cornish summer evening or a winter storm is raging.
From the level parking area steps lead down to the gravelled area at the front door.
The house is set over 3 storeys with light spacious rooms and contemporary furnishings.
Through the front door to the welcoming entrance hall with wooden floors you look straight into the large full width lounge with two full height, sliding double doors and views out to sea. The doors lead on to a large glass fronted balcony area. The lounge is light and airy with comfortable L-shaped sofa and separate chairs, Freeview Smart TV, DVD player and contemporary Contura woodburner. Off the hallway is a cloakroom with WC.
Stairs lead down to the lower level with slate tiled floors, here the spacious kitchen with island unit and dining table has double doors that open out to the large decking area. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, full height fridge/freezer, separate fridge and a dishwasher. There is a boiler/utility room with washing machine and dryer.
The decking area has plenty of room with additional outdoor dining rattan table and chairs as well as a rattan sofa and chair unit with great views out to sea through the glass balustrade. Steps lead down to the lawned area.
Also on this level is the main bedroom with king sized bed, sofa, small TV, dressing area and double doors giving sea views and leading onto the decking area. Next to this room is the large shower room with walk-in shower, WC, and towel rail.
Take the stairs back up to the upper level where you wil find two en-suite bedrooms both with sea views.
The double bedroom, with wooden floor, has french doors with a Juliet balcony and a small TV. The en-suite shower room has walk-in shower, WC, towel rail and slate tiled floor.
The twin bedroom, again with wooden floor, has two full size single beds and two Velux windows. The en-suite has a bath with shower over, WC, towel rail and slate tiled floor.

Set on the west coast of the spectacular Lizard Peninsula, the little harbour town of Porthleven is the quintessential Cornish fishing port. Centred around the harbour, it boasts an array of cafés, restaurants and galleries and exudes a chilled, relaxed atmosphere. Porthleven is the most southerly working port in the UK, with fishing boats operating out of the harbour. This makes the town a great spot to enjoy some delicious seafood, straight from the fishing boats to the restaurants, it couldn’t be fresher!
Porthleven beach can be accessed from the town itself and provides a long expanse of sand which is separated into segments by several rocky outcrops. While away the glorious summer days relaxing on the beach with a locally made ice cream in hand!
Situated part way along a huge sweeping bay, it faces the Atlantic Ocean and is often on the receiving end of some mighty winter storms! A fabulous destination for a winter break; marvel at the awe-inspiring waves pounding the harbour walls from the cosy safety of the local pub!
The surrounding area doesn’t disappoint either; located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the views from every cove or clifftop are picture-perfect. Travel north-west and you’ll reach Marazion, home of St Michael’s Mount – an absolute ‘must’. South takes you to the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Lizard Point, one of Cornwall’s most iconic spots.
You won’t tire of the walks and stunning scenery, but if you fancy a day out, try the Seal Sanctuary, Flambards or Trebah Gardens. Or, go a little further afield and you can explore Penzance, Land’s End and St Ives.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at karrek Beach House. It far exceeded our expectations. It was so relaxing - you felt as though you were on an ocean liner - the sea was so close. What magnificent views! A very spacious house with everything you could want for a memorable stay. The two fridges were very useful and the bed very comfy. Very dog friendly - our dog loved the garden. A short walk into Porthleven brought you to excellent eating places, shops and and that iconic Clock tower. We can and will recommend this house and would return in an instant. Above Beach Cottages were perfect to deal with.Ms M Halliwell - 14th October 2018
Fantastic location, a great base for Porthleven and Lizard. Well equipped and we had a great week. Mr Colin Heyes - 8th October 2018
