About Marie-Louise Lopez

I have been successfully letting 3 Beaches as a holiday home for some years via a well known management company . Now I have relocated to Falmouth and have taken 3 Beaches under my own management.

I hope you will enjoy this very special home as much as I do & many loyal guests who return year after year .

Where ever I travel & live in the world ,this beach house is very hard to better , going to sleep with the sound of the Sea and waking up looking at the Ocean has to be one of the very best things.

Marie-Louise Lopez purchased this house in 2008

Why Marie-Louise Lopez chose Truro & Falmouth

3 Beaches has it all , sunny south westerly facing position overlooking the most beautiful bay with 3 golden sandy beaches all just minutes from the front door. The sea can be gazed at from any window, including from bed.Looking out to sea feels like everything has been left behind .

Then , for a change you can walk into Falmouth town in 10 minutes, for some the best restaurants , pubs , cafes in the south west which suit every need , a world class Marina ,the National Maritime Museum & this year the Tall Ships !

Not forgetting the stunning Harbour location with ferrys to take you on some of the most beautiful boat trips you will take , I am as you can tell very enthusiastic about 3 Beaches and Falmouth, we have never scored under 99% for location with guests recommendations.

What makes this house unique

There are only so many properties built in this location in Falmouth , making 3 beaches a rare property that has so much to offer for all members of the family .You can park your Car for a week and do everything on foot. Walk to the beaches ,into town or catch a ferry to the Helford , St Mawes or to Truro. From the house walk the coastal path as far as you can . Walk up to our own Castle at the end of the road ,Pendennis Castle built by Henry 8Th & now run by English Heritage ....Short car rides for some of the best Gardens in Cornwall , Trebah , Glendurgen .The Helford river to explore and to many stunning beaches to mention .

Good location if you didn't have a dog as dog ban on all beaches in falmouth, very disappointed as we always bring our dog as she loves the seaside.Have never had a problem when we've been away to other seaside places.

Property was ok but in need of some TLC, damp smell in lounge, sun room double glazed doors full of condensation so couldn't see through doors properly, also some of the big windows didn't open.

On the plus side, owner very helpful and good communication .

Property very clean and tidy.

Lovely tea and biscuits left for us on our arrival.

Lovely spacious house in a great location. Walking distance to the town centre and overlooking the beach. Well equipped kitchen with everything you need to cater for yourself. Friendly housekeeper who called to change sheets and towels after the first week. Very easy to relax and enjoy your holiday here.

What a fab property!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location and the views were amazing. Very comfortably and tastefully furnished with plenty of room to chill out, the sun room was a treat to sit in with a morning coffee. We had mixed weather - including two stormy nights - and the house was cosy and warm. Loved walking along the sea front, such a treat!

We would definitely recommend staying here.

Fabulous Place, Fabulous Time

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 5 nights stay at Three Beaches. The location is perfect for town and the beaches, which were right on our doorstep. There were 4 adults and a small pooch. There were lots of little extras which made the cottage a home from home. Books, DVDs and board games to keep you occupied in bad weather, not that we needed them. There are also essentials for the dog (bowls, tinned food and poop bags) in case you have forgotten anything. The log burner is a lovely touch and made us feel toasty in the evening. We had lovely lemon drizzle cake waiting for us, together with milk for tea. The cottage has a sweet stepped garden to the rear which is enclosed, although the terrace at the front with the sea views, which are echoed from each window at the front, is the main outdoor feature. The steps down to the beach are opposite the house, with Castle Beach being a mix of sand and rocks, perfect for dogs and rock pooling, it adds about 15 minutes walk to get to Gilly Beach cafe, but that is only 15 minutes by the footpath so we worked up an appetite for breakfast each day. All in all an outstanding stay. A couple of things I would do differently when we go back though; as we have blackout curtains at home the curtains let in more light then we are used to, so I will bring a sleep mask. Also, I'm used to large bath sheet type towels and the ones supplied, although lovely and plush are smaller so will bring a couple from home. We can't wait to go back.
