Perfect location for the Minack Theatre and great walks along the cliffs.
The apartment was everything we hoped for, especially the broadband! The best bit was seeing 2 basking sharks, 3 dolphins and a seal.
Fabulous, spacious flat with super working kitchen
Surfing in Porthcurno with 4 dolphins 30 metres away - how perfect is that?!
3rd time. Still as lovely as ever
A great base for our week of performances at the Minack Theatre, so close to the beach too
Excellent high speed broadband

When you reach Penzance stay on the A30 and follow the signs for Land's End. Approximately 3 miles outside Penzance take the left turn signposted to the Minack. Drive through St. Buryan and continue (watching out for the hairpin bend!) until you see a left turn signposted to Porthcurno. Drive down into the valley - Zodiac House is the white building on the righthandside, opposite the tennis courts. There is a gate across the entrance - for loading and unloading purposes only it is possible to drive through this gate. To find Shellseekers go through the gate at the side of the property and the entrance to the central block is in the back left corner. The car park is opposite the apartments and the two allocated parking spaces are marked on the ground with the number 9.

To try and prevent any owners from changing their minds about accepting dogs, it would be helpful if you could have a look at the following suggestions:
- Don’t allow your dogs to damage furniture and fittings – bring a throw if you know they will go on furniture or beds
- Clean up any dog hair
- Don’t leave dogs in the property alone if you know they are likely to scratch the paintwork or bark incessantly
- Pick up after your pets in the garden
- Bring a towel to wipe your pet if they get wet or muddy
- Ensure that dogs arrive free of fleas and freshly groomed to ensure there are no lingering smells
