Whilst i do accept and act upon constructive criticism the reviewer in this instance has not reported the facts fully. The property is advertised as self-catering, not "serviced", although I do provide linen and towels at no extra charge if required. A washing machine and clothes line are also provided. Further the property is for 4 persons and there were 5 in the Evans' party although booked for 4. The lack of mobile signal, the parking arrangements and times of rubbish collection are advertised. The wi-fi is indeed "shared" with our other property upstairs and during this guest's stay the internet was being upgraded by B.T. causing connection problems. The weather was very wet and with 5 persons obviously a strain on the fabric of the property. True, I was completing the cleaning of the property when the guests arrived, but I pride myself on the level of cleanliness in my properties and I did check up on the guests with fresh flowers mid-way through their stay, but they did not mention anything about clean towels or linen, only parking, but then they did have 2 vehicles.
A small and pretty fishing village in Cornwall, perfect for hikers and strollers alike, with phenomenal coastal views and charmingly picturesque surroundings.

About Port Isaac
Port Isaac is located reasonably close to other more developed Cornish towns, so it's an excellent base if you want to explore further afield too.
What to Do
See if you can catch a performance by Fisherman's Friends. This famous sea shanty singing group are based here and perform regularly. Well worth seeing if you get the chance!

Clean, comfortable, good location.
Took two grandchildren aged 10 and 3. They both loved it and want to go back. The cottage itself is quaint, quirky and small, as you would expect of an old cottage in a fishing village. The Ritz it isn't (it hasn't been completely modernised) but it is clean, comfortable, has character, is extremely well located in the heart of the village and is about 50 yds from the beach and harbour. We're all looking forward to returning. …
A most enjoyable week at Lower Garrick with family and 2 dogs , 6 adults in total. We had so much space in the house, it was very well equipped, beds and linen excellent and the views and location perfect. Close enough to walk down to village and port gaverne and easy to access all other areas in the vicinity. Plenty of parking and a beautiful garden. Only noise was the sound of the sea. Perfect and highly recommended. I would also add that the owners were very kind and easy to speak to. …
