  • "We have just had a lovely week here."

    Very clean and comfortable. Kitchen very well stocked with everything you would need to self cater. Lovely location with easy access to local beaches and the lovely town of Falmouth which has lots of quirky shops and nice places to eat.

  • "We had a great stay at dragonflies and seahorses."

    The house had everything you could possibly need for your holiday, including buckets and spades for the beach. The house was extremely clean and tidy with everything needed to maintain while your there. The garden is a great little added space, where my children enjoyed football and rhe trampoline. There's a lovely little path just over the road that is only a 10 minute walk to swanpool beach and a really nice sea food restaurant called Hooked on the Rocks. You can carry on along the coastal path as long as you want, if is beautiful. There's lots of things to do in the local area and lots of lovely restaurants. Thanks for a great holiday.

  • "A wonderful space both in and out, great to have use of a garage as had kayak and surfboards with us."

    Very clean and lovely to arrive to makings for cream tea and a pint of milk. Smart TV allowed access to own entertainment channels which was nice on the evenings where we had no plans. Good basic provisions for clean comfortable stay downstairs. The master bedroom is a great size and deserves a bigger bed that and a little investment in better mattresses. The curtains are really inadequate for keeping light out, I would suggest some black out blinds in all rooms for those that prefer not to wake at first light on holiday. Sadly these are the two reasons we would not book again, or recommend despite such a lovely space. A medium size investment in a high quality King size or Super King size bed, good quality mattress and black out blinds would make this place an absolute perfect place to stay. I would also respectfully suggest binning the Polypropylene bath mat that simply spreads water around the bathroom floor, an absorbent cotton one would be so much better. Not a deal breaker but an honest observation! This honest review should not take away from a property that is clearly maintained and cleaned to a high standard each week, and none of the criticism is made without a desire to thank the owners on all other fronts.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that over all you enjoyed your visit at Dragonflies & Seahorses. We have taken on board the mention of blackout curtains in the master bedroom and will install these, all other rooms already have these. The mattress is a very good quality brand and is not very old at all, as you can appreciate these are of personal preference to each individual. The bed in this room is a standard double, which we chose over a king size to ensure space for guests to move around the room. We have removed the bath mat. Property Owner

  • "This is a great house and as described."

    On arrival, the garden and appearance were pleasant and tidy. The house was very clean and functional with everything you could need. The toys in the children's bunk room and trampoline in garden were an added bonus for our twins, especially my son who has autism and loves jumping and baby toys. The owners also left Easter treats and tulips which made us feel very welcome. So thank you. The beds could be more slightly more comfortable. My husband and I shared the twin room and one bed was quite lumpy and kept me awake. A mattress topper would probably help. The shower was leaking into the kitchen slightly during our stay, but am sure this will get sorted, we just felt bad as had to shower knowing it leaked and dripped onto kitchen window. The garden was nice to sit in with a cuppa although this house is on a modern housing estate, so no views as such, but pleasant enough. Aside from these minor things, we really enjoyed staying near to Falmouth and just a short walk (around 15 minutes) to swanpool which is a lovely little beach with cafe. We have family in the area so it was a perfect base for us, we would stay here again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We take this seriously and are pleased to inform you that the shower has been fixed and we have purchased a new mattress. Thank you also for your positive comments, we look forward to welcoming you at Dragonflies and Seahorses in the future! Property Owner

  • "A very well equipped property, that was clean and comfortable."

    It would benefit by having some curtains, or blinds for the dining area window. A dustpan and brush would have allowed us to sweep up the odd crumbs. PThese are very minor items and did not detract from us having an enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay there again.

    Very clean and so well equipped. The garden was so well maintained with a lawn and flowers (that my son watered every day) highly recommend this house. The location was also really quiet. We also bumped into the owner who was a top man. We will definitely be re-booking for the coming future! Thank you!!!!! :)

Across the landing you will find the twin bedroom and the bunk-bed room, both with ample storage along with a peaceful atmosphere so the young ones can drift into a blissful nights sleep.

The first-floor is complete with a family bathroom with a charming, wooden-paneled bath for a leisurely soak or take shower to rinse off your sandy feet.

Outdoor table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement, take advantage of the barbecue and enjoy your meal in the pretty rear garden whilst the sun is still shining.

For a hearty carvery, take a short stroll to the local pub, Boslowick Inn, or head to the beachfront restaurant Hooked On The Rocks to taste some exquisite seafood.
