Description from owner


Newly renovated brick and cedar clad, Mediterranean style villa approx 150 metres from a sandy beach and set into the wooded slopes of Black Rock, Millendreath, a picturesque Cornish Valley. Overlooks the sea and opposite hillside. Coast path walks. Dogs allowed on our beach Oct to May with no restrictions, but before 9am and after 6pm May to Oct. (Latest policy) Nearest all year dog friendly beach is Plaidy, a 5 minute walk from villa. Dogs welcome free of charge.

A very mild climate through to winter, offering from 3 night breaks out of summer season. Comfortable modern living with lounge and kitchen Sea view had a mini refurb in Sept 2017. 2 compact double bedrooms, both with double beds, wardrobe and drawers (Bed linen hire an optional extra. Please ask if required). A new light oak kitchen. Lounge with sea and country views. Under floor heating for cooler weather and an air exchange unit providing constant clean air into the property, (Ideal for asthma and hay fever sufferers and purifying air from pet odours). 43” 4K HD smart TV with built in freesat.Fully double glazed. Parking is in the private car park in the valley approx 100 metres away after unloading at foot of villa steps. You are provided with a parking pass. Although 2 bed roomed, the villa is compact and ideally, it is best suited to couples. There are 63 steps up to the property, please take this into account before booking. Thank you. There is a new beach bar and a beach front café for the summer months, serving breakfasts, drinks, snacks and meals. Please check Black Rock Beach Cafe on facebook for updated opening times as they tend to open the 'Cornish' way...sporadically. Great 'Foody club' nights and Sunday lunches. Booking advised. These franchises change hands, opening times cannot be guaranteed during your stay. Sorry. If you want hustle and bustle, Millendreath is not for you, however Looe is a hilly 1 mile walk away and has many shops and numerous restaurants. There are coastal paths, countryside and woodland walks from the valley, ideal for dog walkers and ramblers. Plaidy beach is a five minute walk from the villa and is dog friendly all year. Dogs are only allowed on 'our' beach before 9am and after 6 pm, (May to Oct) No restrictions Oct to May. Also, at low tide you can walk your dog down the jetty and go over the rocks to the beautiful East beach, where there are no restrictions. It does get cut off, but is accessible for several hours making it very quiet. (Don't forget to get back before the tide comes back in, or walk along the beach to Seaton and alternatively return by coast path!). Millendreath beach is small when the tide is in, there is seasonal kayak, paddle board, sun lounger hire and also has a jetty from which to fish or enclosed bathing at high tide.

If this property is booked up we have another 75m from the sea. Sea Salt hillside villa property no 19, with 80+5* Trip Advisor reviews. Also has the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The accommodation had all we needed, the views are amazing. Walk to the beach two minutes. Coastal walks definitely worth doing. Fantastic place and Karen did all she could for us including a bottle as a gift ❤

“Blissful stay, with stunning views”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2018

Can not fault this holiday villa, it exceeded our expectations, being able to wake up and see the sea from your bed was a real joy. The villa itself was furnished to a high standard and had everything you needed and more. The large terrace was a real treat but my favourite had to be the stunning view and lovely location. We have already booked to go back in May and we can’t wait.

Owner's reply: This is wonderful, thank you so much. May will be a different experience with the bluebells everywhere!

Reviewed 24 Oct 2017

We had a fantastic stay at this lovely chalet in Millendreath. The chalet is beautifully presented - spotlessly clean with a stunning fresh decor and extremely well thought out furnishing to include everything you could possibly need. The location is incredible - so wonderful to lie in bed and watch the sea, the beach is a two minute walk away with a super cafe, and Looe itself is a really pleasant walk along the cliff top which our kids (7 & 4) were very happy to do several times. We would love to come back! Thank you!

Owner's reply: Fabulous. So pleased you have had such a wonderful time, of course you are welcome back. Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review, it is very much appreciated.

Myself and my partner stayed at the sea view hillside villa and what an amazing time we had. The villa is perfect, all mod cons and so comfortable and stylish. It's positioned in a small bay and the views out to the sea are amazing, as are the vies in the other direction of the countryside. It's a perfect retreat and myself f and my partner can't wait to return there!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. Congratulations on your engagement while staying in Sea View, you are welcome back any time.

“Another fabulous stay”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2015

Booked direct with Karen after visiting the previous year. Fantastic communication on all accounts. We arrived late at night (10pm), and she had kindly arranged to have the outside lights on and the heating on in the lounge. There were four of us visiting, 2 adults and 2 chocolate labradors. 63 ish steps up to the front door and you reach the apartment. It is very contemporary with a couple of leather settees in the lounge and free view tv with dvd player. Fully equipped kitchen with washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge, freezer. Two bedrooms, double and twin, with amazing sea views from both the master bedroom and the lounge. Large patio outside, again with amazing uninterrupted sea view. Bathroom with electric shower over bath. Heating costs were approximately £4 a day in winter, this included keeping one radiator on in the lounge 24 hours a day, extra radiator on in the lounge in the evening, bedroom heater on morning and night, also the washer/dryer was used once. Extra electricity cards can be purchased 24 hours a day from one of the chalets. We actually had snow/sleet and hail while we were there, and we were warm enough. You could of course put the underfloor heating on, but this can be a bit costly and we didn't need it. We walked to Looe along the beach (a bit of rock scrambling and 30 mins or so), to Seaton (just over an hour if you go up and over Looe Hill), we also visited Mount Edgecombe Park by car. There is a lot of work going on the site, and its going to be amazing by the time its finished, and probably a lot more expensive, the work men were not intrusive in any way and we only heard them when we were out and about and even that wasn't noisy. The beach is very close by with a cafe (not open in January) and is dog friendly off season all day long, I believe there is a 10-6pm ban of dogs during the summer months. Few places to recommend: Coddy Shack for fish and chips (5 mins drive); Mount Edgecombe Park for an amazing walk in a fantastic location and a cream tea at the end (30 mins drive ish); Smugglers Inn at Seaton is very dog friendly (even damp-ish dogs allowed); great baked potato at Ye Olde Saluation in Looe (again dog friendly). Aldi and Morrisons at Liskeard (about 8 miles away); couple of Co-ops in Looe. Top and bottom of it... Would I recommend, Yes... Would I visit again, Yes.

Owner's reply: Wow, thank you for the fantastic review. Of course you are 'all' welcome back any time. ( Must just mention, 2nd room also has a double bed!) Thanks for the heating tips, the radiators are a new improvement; if people do not wish to use the more expensive under floor heating......there is the choice. Thanks again Karen

“Definitely a Sea view!”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2014

What a great place to stay if you want exercise, relaxation, a place to read and let the world go by. Everything is lovely in the property with very good supply of essentials for self catering. Cosy and comfortable with amazing views from the balcony which would act like an extra living space in the warmer months. Had a great few days.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad you were able to relax. I know you had to go into Looe to connect to BTPhon, then it was ok. There is a free BT hotspot for BT Internet customers only. Black Rock cafe also has wifi, but is closed for the winter now. Rachel, you are welcome back, anytime.

“Quiet, Peaceful location well positioned for exploring many places of interest”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2014

A fabulous location for those seeking peace and quiet, but well situated for walking into Looe or for driving to other towns, villages and tourist hot-spots. The apartment has fantastic sea views overlooking the small bay and is furnished with every possible need. There is a very large balcony that is well equipped with a bbq, tables, chairs, lounges and cushions if needed. The owner was extremely helpful from the initial enquiry right through to our arriving back home at the end of our stay. In my opinion the apartment is very comfortable for two people and would suit a couple or a small family. The bedrooms are snug but comfortably furnished for a holiday, one of them looks out over the bay from the bed - such a treat to wake up to! For me the experience would have been perfect had the bed and sofa's been more comfortable. There was a restaurant just moments from the apartment that we were not able to use as it was, I imagine (nothing posted on the property to advise otherwise), closed for the season? We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would return again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely review. We have taken on board your comments. When we go down next week to paint throughout, we will replace the front bedroom mattress. I have also amended my details, letting guests know that the café appears to have more sporadic opening times than in previous years. The lovely Cornish people have a laid back approach to opening and closing times! More recent guests have said the café was actually open some days during their stay! (Black Rock Beach Café is on face book for details.) Hope to see you next year. Karen

The view is wonderful. Very peaceful and relaxing the walks are well worth it. Definitely need walking shoes. Will be booking again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. When we get our fitness up, we are going to attempt the coastal walk to Polperro....luckily there is a bus back to Looe if I can't make it both ways! Hope we have availability for your next visit.
