“I grew Harbour Holidays out of my estate agents business, many years ago. Over time the company has gone from strength to strength, and seeing my daughter take over the reins and lead it into the next chapter is wonderful. Still managing the estate agents, I’m just next door for sharing insights, cups of tea and lunchtime strolls along the harbour. From the very beginning, the drive for me has been hearing people say, “Thank you, I’ve had a brilliant holiday”. That’s why we’re all here.”
“Swinging by the Crab Tree café for my morning coffee and breathing in the sea air by the harbour. There’s no better way to start a day filled with taking on new properties, developing marketing materials, helping owners with furnishing quandaries and managing all the company’s comings and goings. My favourite part of it all is putting my eye for design to work to good use, helping owners spruce up their properties and seeing the difference it makes.”
Cornwall was a very special place for myself and my family whilst I was growing up. Spending our holidays down here every year, fond memories of building sandcastles, playing in the rock pools, and going for ice creams with my grandparents. Now living down here, I love that I can help other families create their own fond memories of holidaying in this beautiful location.
Being the Manager of Harbour Holidays, I am always on hand to speak with guests and the owners of our properties. The favourite part of my job is to visit new properties and working with the owners to create a beautiful holiday home for our guests. From the first correspondence through to completing the webpage and taking that exciting first booking.
I have a great team behind me and feel honoured to work for such a local and loyal company.
“Helping guests find the best property to live out their holiday, managing the booking process and handling any issues. Being a lettings agent at Harbour Holidays for the last five years has certainly kept me on my toes! I love finding opportunities to make people’s holidays that bit better, and listening to their tales of soaking up all that Padstow has to offer. If there’s one thing to do while you’re here, it’s taking in the view from Chapel Stile.”
"I have been visiting Cornwall for as long as I can remember as my family owned a holiday home in Newquay. I absolutely love everything Cornwall has to offer - from exploring the beautiful coastline to sampling the endless food and drink venues. What I love most about working at Harbour Holidays is that it allows me to share my amazing experiences and passion for Cornwall as a destination with others. I love working in the heart of Padstow, surrounded by everything Cornwall! For me, nothing makes me happier than knowing we have contributed towards the creation of a fantastic holiday."
"I am very lucky to have lived in Cornwall all my life. One of the biggest highlights from my childhood is growing up surrounded by the seaside. My Grandpa and I used to spend summers at the beach with him teaching me how to surf. Funnily enough, I still can’t! Living in Wadebridge for the past 5 years I have become familiar with Padstow and the surrounding areas. Treyarnon Bay is one of my family’s favourite beaches. I have always been passionate about travelling and can’t wait to do more in the future. I know how important it is for people to have a relaxing, fun and unique holiday so helping others achieve their perfect break away is very rewarding to me".
