    A wonderful cottage, spacious, very well maintained and decorated. Fully equipped, everything has been thought of, and it feels modern while maintaining character through the provision of local art, pictures, photos and some quirky artefacts. The coal effect gas fires in both the dining room and living room maintained a cosy feel to the house when it got very cold towards the end of our week - though central heating on it's own was very effective. The tiered garden looked lovely though unfortunately not the month to sit out in it. Great views across the valley to the cliff walks, and the postion was great with a short walk down to picturesque Port Isaac with it's great pub, small shops and restaurants. A short walk up the hill to a decent well stocked small Co-op, and if wanting to splash out Outlaws Michelin 2* restaurant. Cliff walks close by. Having to contact the owners a couple of times we found them extremely responsive, enthusiastic and helpful which only added to the great time we had here and we would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    We had a wonderful Christmas at Carlenice! It was like a home from home. The owners made sure the house was decorated ready for our visit and even left us some choccies! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Port Isaac.

    The is an excellent place to stay, the house is nicely decorated and furnished and is well supplied with all that is erquired for a peaceful holiday. The availability of a parking space at the front of this property is a big bonus in Port Isaac. I've marked ths 'local amenities' down a big as although Port Isaac and the surrounding area are wonderful places to visit the shopping is very limited locally and some but not all of the restaurants are very expensive.

    Lovely cottage, well equipped with personal touches which make all the difference. Comfortable beds, large screen t.v. in the lounge and tv's in two of the bedrooms. We would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    This is a really lovely home to holiday in. Lots to see and do within walking distance and driving distance. Our weather wasn't brilliant but we still had a good time. Thank you

    Beautiful home in a fantastic location. Great walks combined with good location to go out to explore surrounding attractions. We loved the house but just had 2 suggestions, kitchen needs some tlc and main bathroom was nicely decorated but base of the shower unit wasn't cleaned to a standard. This would not stop us visiting again a real find. ❤

    Carlenice has got to be one of the best cottages we have stayed in, no expense has been spared to make this a wonderful holiday experience for everyone. It is spacious and comfortable with decent sized TV's, a must for the sometimes rainy days in Cornwall. The garden, although on three tiers and quite steep is wonderful, gorgeous flowers and outside seating areas. The car parking space was great, an essential for us when choosing a cottage. The location is great, not too far from the amazing Port but it is near the top of a very steep hill that could prove a problem for the less able. We just about managed it every day and evening! Doc Martin's house is visible from a bedroom for the many fans to know.

    This is a lovely property, within easy reach of the harbour, pubs and restaurants. The top desk of the garden has amazing views, and we soaked up the sun there when we first arrived. The bedrooms are all a good size and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are high spec, and the showers are powerful and we didn't run out of hot water. The kitchen is well equipped and having the dryer in the shed/lean to was a bonus. Having the parking spaces outside the house was very convenient, although I have a Ford Focus size car and my son a small VW Up and it was very tight, but we managed it. We have stayed in a lot of properties in Cornwall and this was up there with the best.
