About The Owner

This much loved holiday home was orginally owned by my mother who spent many weeks in the villa enjoying the views, sightseeing and walking. I now have the pleasure of owning the villa and spending whatever time I can there enjoying relaxing days. An early evening will often be spent swimming in the sea whilst the sun is setting.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1985

Why The Owner chose Cornwall

Lovely views to the hills on one side and sea on the other.

What makes this villa unique

Small cove beach with facilities. Tranquility and beauty.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry the villa was not clean. There must have been a problem with the cleaner. If you had contacted me on arrival I would have immediately arranged for someone to go in. We have guests returning to the villa every year and have a lovely holiday so again I can only apologise that you did not enjoy your stay.

A lovely location but property needs some updating.

  • 2 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and the view from the balcony was fantastic. A good location and we enjoyed visiting Looe and Polperro. Only negative for us was we both felt the property could do with a little updating. Some of the furnishings were damaged and furniture dated. However the kitchen areas was nice and the cost to rent the property was very reasonable.

Fantastic accommodation, perfect base, amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is set up a number of steps, so recommend more and lighter bags than fewer and heavier bags! Beautiful accommodation, everything you could need. Beautiful balcony / patio area where we sat outside on 20/10 in T-shirts at 4pm, we had glorious weather.

We were concerned about the electricity meter (it's behind the bin) we thought this would be expensive, especially with having the water heater on, washing machine and tumble dryer - we used less than £5 inn a week!

The location is perfect for walking, Looe is a pleasant walk as is Seaton beach. We visited Polruan for a beautiful walk and Edgecombe Park. We had two small dogs, the laminate flooring made it easy for us to keep everywhere clean. Millendreath beach does not accept dogs however Plaidy and Seaton beaches - either side of Millendreath do allow dogs.

Lots of local pubs, Sarah's pasties in Looe are to die for (we came back with 32 pasties!

Thank you for a fabulous break, will definitely highly recommend

nicht zufriedenstellend / not advisable

  • 2 of 5

Leider haben wir uns in dieser Unterkunft nicht wohl gefühlt. Sie machte insgesamt einen ungepflegten Eindruck. Die Zusammenstellung der Einrichtung kann man als geschmacklos bezeichnen. Die Dusche funktioniert nicht richtig (es kommt nur wenig Wasser und die Temperatur ist schwer einzustellen, außerdem ist der Schlauch zu kurz). Der Staubsauger war verstopft und kaum zu gebrauchen. Das Blech im Backofen war so mit angekohlten Resten verdreckt, dass man den Ofen nur ohne dieses Blech benutzen konnte, ansonsten sprang der Rauchmelder an. In einer Kammer lagert ein Haufen angeschmutzter, muffiger Kissen/Decken/Auflagen die eigentlich in den Müll gehören. Die Vermieter scheinen sich keine besondere Mühe zu geben, die Wohnung einladend und gemütlich zu machen.

Positiv ist die Lage der Wohnung – der Strand ist wirklich schnell zu Fuß erreichbar und das Meer von der Terrasse aus zu sehen. Die Anlage ist ruhig und angenehm.

Wir können diese Ferienunterkunft jedoch insgesamt nicht weiterempfehlen.

Unfortunately we didn`t feel comfortable in the so called “villa”. The furnishing is not elegant at all. In different ways it was unkempt. For example the shower and the vacuum cleaner don`t work in a satisfactory manner. There was a lot of old rubbish in the cabinets. Overall we had the impression, that nobody really takes great care of the flat. So we cannot recommend it to other visitors, although the position in the area is nice.

Very filthy

  • 1 of 5

This appartment was very filthy. The kitchen and bathroom were seriously polluted. In the bathroom, the most polluted part of the house, even the shower curtain was full of mold. The first day we spent cleaning. The appartment is rented including linen, but given the state of the house, we didn't want to sleep underneath. Luckily we had our own sheets. Another review also notes that the house was filthy. I was misled by the friendly response from the owner who noted that if he had known, he had send a cleaner. But this appartment needs more then 1 cleaner. It's not properly cleaned in a long, long time.

The house is also too full. The drawers and kitchen cabinets are packed with things you don't need. Many paint cans and drawers full of mess.

We had rented for 1 week, but we left one day earlier, because of the state of the house.

Black rock beach is a wonderful place, but make sure you don't hire number 42.
