  • "A good base for the Falmouth area, clean and comfortable, the property is a bit tired but was ideal for us two and the dog, the enclosed back garden is an asset for dog owners and a good sun trap for sitting outside."

    The shower in the bathroom is a bit tight, but I am 6’5’’. We would happily return.

  • "Lovely house although a bit dated , beds were comfy and nice bedding."

    We did have a few visits from the lovely Alfie the dog from the garden behind the house he was very friendly with us and my dog. It’s possible when deposits have been found in the garden that is was the lovely Alfie and not the dogs staying there. Great location but quite a steep walk back from the beach , especially after a couple of gins.

  • "Cream teas and milk in the fridge on arrival was great and the property was clean, but is very tired and dated."

    It has the potential to be amazing but it feels like you are living back in the 1980’s. Every cupboard in the kitchen is absolutely full of ‘stuff’ meaning there is nowhere for you to put food or anything you brought with you. The TV only worked sporadically as it has a loose connection and the shower was disappointing and the front door only stays closed if you lock it! We were aware there was no downstairs WC, but it was more of an issue than we expected as we took elderly family with us- the utility room is a huge waste of space - plenty of room to incorporate a downstairs WC- but as I’ve already said- the house needs money spending on it. The garden is a positive, getting the sun for most of the day. We also had telecom workman digging holes in the road for two days, blocking the driveway and starting work at 7.30am - it would have been good to be warned! The property is in a great location, but a bit basic - so sadly not for us.

    Many thanks for your feedback following your stay at Phenests. Customer feedback is incredibly important to help us continually improve our standards. We are sorry to hear that the property was not to your taste, however we are pleased to advise that the Property Owner has received your feedback and we have discussed the areas you have highlighted.

  • "Kitchen rags and rubbish bin bags are not provided."

    Toilet rolls provided are not enough. Further to that we had trouble with the WiFi as 3 students had to do their exam online the WiFi breaks and disrupts often. We also had problem with dryer which was dirty and not working well to dry the clothes. Other than the above that the cottage was perfect and wonderful and we don’t mind renting again and Falmouth is a lovely place to relax and have a typical English holiday.

  • "Arrived at Phenets after a long journey only to find everything need for a Cornish Cream Tea; it was a lovely surprise."

    The house has everything you could wish for; kitchen includes all the crockery/cookware/utensils that we could need. More than sufficient towels, and all four beds being made up, despite there just being the 2 of us. Lovely place and a 15 minute walk to the beach. Highly recommended.

  • "Great location."

    Comfortable house. Maybe the cleaners could take away some of the rubbish. We had to sort rubbish left by two previous occupants that hadn’t been put out for collection. Could also do with replacement pillows! However, would stay here again as really enjoyed our week

  • "It is a shame that a few little tweaks could make this house exceptional."

    Couldn't get the oven to work or the upstairs tv. A book with guidance would be helpful. Also the shower needs some grouting work done. A nice few starter items were great but spoiled by the fact that we couldn't get the lounge TVs to work then we found that all the arials had been taken out of the set - why? Sport for items in the kitchen - never had so many in any of the places we have staid previously this was a plus. Good location for seeing the area a the beach is only a 5min drive away.

  • "The property is in a good location in Falmouth - close to the city centre and local beaches and attractions such as the Maritime Museum."

    The house is nice and cosy. Was clean and neat upon our arrival. We are happy with our first stay in Cornwall.

  • "The house has potential to be a really lovely stay for all ages but it is not toddler proof."

    There is wires hanging from the wall lights, there is lots of clutter around meaning we were unable to unpack all of our clothes and food shop. We had 3 drawers & 2 x small drawers for 4 of us as the chest of drawers in the cupboard was full of someone else’s clothes! The garden has lots of different levels and the decking is rotting right outside of the back door. The door is very hard to open and close. The house also isn’t very clean, lots of cobwebs around. With these little things that could easily be rectified, it would be a lovely holiday home as there are lovely beaches within a short walking distance.

  • "Lovely comfortable house and we very much enjoyed our stay."

    A welcome pack of house info would be nice, little things like nearest shops, and walking route to the beach, which is really quick and easy once you have found it!! Some basic cleaning supplies would be good too, I like to keep the properties I stay in clean, especially the kitchen but there was no cleaning products at all. The patio door needs looking at, it doesn’t slide very well and we had trouble closing it so decided not to open it again. Not a problem im March, but summer visitors will need it as there are no other opening windows downstairs. Not wanting this to sound too negative as it is a lovely comfortable house in an ideal location to explore from. We would definitely visit again.

This semi-detached house offers welcoming, comfortable home-from-home accommodation, with ample off-street parking, front garden and a pretty enclosed rear garden.

The entrance hallway leads into a separate sitting room with comfy seating and the kitchen is modern with all the mod cons, including a utility room with a washer/dryer, plus dining space framing garden views from the patio doors.

The first floor hosts three bedrooms; all beds have sleep-inducing mattress-toppers for additional comfort, plus the family shower room.

The garden is attractive with decking, bench and alfresco table and chairs, a lovely sunspot for morning coffee and evening tipples with paved area and steps leading up to the slightly raised lawn, a haven for little ones and dogs to play.

Falmouth resort boasts big harbour with stunning views across to Flushing and St Mawes.

Four glorious beaches, The National Maritime Museum, galleries, inns and restaurants, with oceanside cafes and boats and boards for hire will keep you entertained.

Take a sea fishing excursion or explore the hidden creeks by kayak.

Closer to home, just a 2 minute walk away is Falmouth golf course where you can Pitch & Putt, or play a full round of golf.

Coast path rambles, castles and countryside beckons, with glorious Trebah Gardens a 15 minute drive away.
