Spacious house, fantastic location was a perfect holiday!
Situated at the end of a no through lane, just uphill from Carbis Bay. Spacious house great for my family, my parents and friends. Beds were so comfy with new bedding, quilts & pillows. Heating was brill & needed as was a particularly chilly week. Large spacious kitchen was great for all.of us. We also took 4 toy breed dogs with us via pre arrangement. Perfect for dogs with the wooden floors and wrap around garden. Found dog friendly beaches in Hayle, Porthkidney and Gwithian. Gwithian beach particular nice with parking at the top, toilets and beautiful turquoise sea and rock pools. We visited Lands End, roughly 20 mins drive. St Ives very close, we found a taxi ride was easier than the local train as a couple were cancelled then another was 2 full 2 allow us on. Taxi was quick and cheap, much easier. Great home cooking cafe in Hayle, Duckies Cafe dog friendly 2!
Had a great Easter holiday, weather wasn't the best but house and location defiantly made up for that!
Good location with great parking
The house is large and spacious, with great parking for multiple cars if needed.
Richard is very accommodating, and graciously supplied us towels as we had come from Canada.
It was clean and tidy, but both inside and out could use some TLC.
Very comfortable beds ,well equipped kitchen,plenty of space everywhere.
Lovely clean home in the perfect location. Cannot fault the house one bit, we all enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting St Ives again.
Not as descibed. Tired and rundown
Really surprised as previous reviews were good. Property is well situated but patio, exterior and garden are run down, doors are falling off the electricity meter box ,the shed is falling down , the garden and surrounding hard standings is full of weeds. The patio very slippery and the wooden furniture rotting away . There was no gas for the BBQ and despite contacting the owner none was supplied. Internally it is spacious . Beds comfortable and bedding clean and fresh. No towels are supplied . There is not enough seating for 6 adults in the lounge and the fold up kitchen chairs have seen better days. The shower surrounds and back of hob need a good clean. Several lights were not working throughout and there are wires hanging down under some of the kitchen cupboards. There were not enough wine glasses or small glasses. The ensuite in the upstairs double is functionable although it is so narrow you cannot move your arms or pull your knickers up!
The beach is great, as is the train to St Ives which is very reasonable and quick. Would recommend the cream teas at Rosemergy Farmhouse and we had a really good meal and evening at La casita. Staff and food there excellent . Worth booking ahead as it is very popular.
Not as described or as shown in the photos. Property is tired and outside is run down .
We were really surprised when we arrived as the previous reviews were good. The property is well situated for a family stay however the patio , garden and exterior are run down . The doors are falling off the electricity meter housing, the shed is falling down with the garden and hard standing at the side of the house full of weeds . The patio is slippery and the wooden furniture falling apart. There was no gas for the gas BBQ and despite contacting the owner none materialised.
Internally it is spacious and the bedding fresh and clean . The showers and back of the hob needed a good clean and there were several lights not working throughout. There were wires hanging down below two of the kitchen cupboards. Despite advertising the contrary, towels are no longer provided . There were plenty of cooking tins though there were not enough wine glasses or smaller glasses.
There is not enough seating for 6 adults in the lounge and the fold up chairs in the kitchen had seen better days.
Bedrooms are of a good size and beds are comfortable. The ensuite in the main bedroom upstairs is a narrow cupboard which is although functional there is no room to move your arms or pull your knickers up.
The beach is great and so is the train service to St Ives which is quick ,inexpensive and saves driving.We arranged a Tesco delivery and the driver was very helpful and cheerful. We had a great cream tea at the beautifully situated Rosemergy Farmhouse and would also thoroughly recommend La Casita for it great food, atmosphere and excellent staff.
