Another enjoyable stay at Sandy Feet Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Sandy Feet Cottage during Feb half term. Vikki the owner could not have been more helpful. We enjoyed 5 nights with some much needed R&R. The cottage is well equipped in a fantastic central location. We would definitely recommend a stay.

Great location. Compact and clean. Excellent communication from Vikki.

  • 4 of 5

Vikki had been great offering advice on where to park in St Ives. Arrived to find cottage as described; clean, compact and well kitted out. Such a good location for the town and the lovely beaches.

Only thing missing was a dish cloth to do the washing up - would have helped. Otherwise, great!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Good stay great location for town and beach, house was overall very comfortable. I was disappointed there was no hair dryer at the property but the tea, coffee and fresh milk was a welcomed addition. Our little boy enjoyed all the beach toys and we all had a lovely stay.

Perfect location to be on foot

  • 3 of 5

For the months leading up to our visit to St Ives, Vicki was most helpful. However, we arrived and found the cottage in only fair shape. Having said that, I understand completely that if a house is not up to par, it is not the owners fault, but the cleaning staff who have been hired.

Having been a VRBO owner myself, I also understand how essential it is to make certain the maintenance is done on the house correctly and thouroghly prior to the next booking.

A well equipped kitchen is so important and I found that there was nothing in the way of even the most basic of condiments, not even paper napkins. The interior of the oven had not been cleaned for a while it seemed and so I was hesitant to use it. Most importantly though and why I have written this review is the washing machine. It would have been greatly appreciated if the washing machine had been cleaned, by running an empty cycle perhaps, prior to our use, as it has taken 3 washings to rid our clothing of the rancid water scent that was left on them from the machine. I never thought of doing this myself as I presumed everything would be in perfect working order. I am sorry to have to write this and I would like to emphasize that I know it isn't Vicki's negligence, but I do feel a solid talking to the cleaning staff would be most helpful.

St Ives is a beautiful spot though and if you do surf, you will not be disappointed by the offerings nearby....bring your wet suit and cap though!

Owner's Response: Hi Kate I am sorry you felt things weren't up to par. I have passed on your comments to the housekeeper who has promised to correct any issues you have raised. Kind regards Vikki
