  • "This was our 2nd stay at Nanas House."

    Our family of 4 and our dog had a lovely holiday here. The garage is a huge bonus as we love early morning and late evening paddleboarding at saint michaels mount,this meant we could keep all our equipment safely locked away. The washing machine is also a bonus, plus the scones and milk are a welcome treat after a long drive down. Beautifully decorated and very clean. We will be back. Thank you

  • "Everything we expected plus more."

    Excellent location and having a garage a big bonus. We easily got our Evoque in the garage despite previous posts saying it was difficult.

  • "A lovely, immaculate and well equipped cottage."

    The position is perfect for the beach and all surrounding walks, towns and villages whether on foot, by car or bus, plus short walks over to St. Michael’s Mount to enjoy the castle and gardens were such a bonus. It was super having the garage which was not a problem for our BMW - although next time a smaller car would be much better for getting around the narrow country roads - our reversing skills have definitely improved! We have had a wonderful holiday, thank you.

  • "Having an 8 year old and a puppy with us, this property was in the most perfect location - less than 100 steps to get down onto a dog friendly beach!"

    Having use of the garage for parking is invaluable as there isn't a lot of parking close by, people with the biggest cars or less confident drivers might find it a little daunting as its pretty tight down there but our car is almost 5m long and with a bit of thought it was easy enough to swing it around and fit it in the garage. The property is nicely decorated, clean and light. It was the ideal base for our first family holiday to Cornwall. Two slight blemishes on the stay would be how drafty the windows were and the fact there was no heating at all in the WC making for some very chilly toilet experiences. 4/5 Thanks!

  • "Cosy and quaint cottage indeed, with gorgeous views of St Michael's Mount from the master bedroom."

    Only steps to the beach! This house was comfortable for our family of 4 for the week. Well thought out with tables and chairs that could be brought out and put away as needed (space saving). The toilet/shower rooms are not well insulated which I found a bit uncomfortable as cold. And the master windows were draughty - but we were there at especially windy times (storm Eunice). Bring your slippers and snuggle under the provided blankets, and you'll be OK! Kitchen well enough equipped for us to cook and bake. Beds comfy. Would recommend - Thanks Nana's House!

  • "This delightful cosy and well equipped cottage was all we hoped for a stay in Marazion, with Seaviews and lovely walks."

    A garage was a bonus but for confident drivers only. The only downside was that Sykes agency did not provide a contact number for any queries before arriving, and as our arrival was a day later we couldn’t notify anyone. We look forward to future visits ThankYOU!

  • "Absolutely wonderful holiday."

    Modern, clean house, lovely comfy beds, fantastic view, perfectly situated. Read negative reviews about garage and could not understand what people were complaining about as we managed to get our estate car in without too much hassle. Our only small issue was that although plenty hot enough, the shower was not very powerful. We look forward to returning again. Thankyou .

  • "Lovely cottage, compact and bijoux would best describe it."

    Best views from upstairs, livingroom window looks out onto garage - not shown in pics. The cottage has everything you need for the stay, parking in the garage very tricky - we have a mini clubman. All things considered we had a lovely stay. We left the car and took the bus everywhere. Book tables for dinner, very busy everywhere. Favourite place we visited - Porthleven. We would definitely stay again.

  • "A lovely little cottage in a good central location in the village, walking distance to everything you need except a supermarket which is only a short drive away."

    The cottage itself is clean and tidy and nicely decorated. Considering its small size, all modern facilities are present. Only things to mention are the parking was quite tricky in a large car, requiring reversing down the narrow lane and into the garage. The stairs are very steep, which was difficult for our elderly mothers and only has a handrail on one side. The owner might like to install one on the other side for older guests. Otherwise we had a great stay.

  • "Nana’s house is beautifully furnished and well equipped."

    The location is perfect and the views from the master bedroom are breathtaking of St. Michaels Mount. It was a surprise treat to wake up, draw the curtains back and relax with a cup of tea whilst taking in the magnificent view. The only real downside was the parking, it’s super narrow and tight. We have a long car and it didn’t fit in the garage. I had to navigate my husband into the space on arrival and departure from the house. There is no window or air vent in the toilet which you need with it being so close to the kitchen. Also there was a wipe left on the sofa and the cleaners bag left on the doorstep on our arrival. She must have left in a hurry. All in all we really enjoyed our holiday in beautiful Marazion and the last two points are only minor discrepancies. We would definitely revisit Nana’s house if we had a smaller car.

  • "Charming lovely compact cottage right next to the sea."

    Met all expectations and wanted for nothing within this 2 bedroom home. Everything appears clean and well maintained. Beds comfortable with fresh linen. Sitting area compact but adequate and cute. The only negatives were the conduction hob was difficult to work out how to use it but we got there eventually. I have a fairly large car and it was challenging to manoeuvre it into the space between the house and the garage but by the end of the week realised there is a knack to it. All in all I would definitely return to this cottage and think Nana would be proud of what it has become.

  • "Brilliant holiday in a lovely cottage."

    The location was wonderful and the cottage was cosy, clean and had all amenities. The house is bright and airy with modern and new furniture and is a joy to stay in. Parking in the garage was slightly problematic. Tight getting in with my hatchback so a larger saloon might have problems. The only disappointment is that I left a couple of coats behind which I don’t seem to be able to recover, even though I’m willing to pay postage etc. Can’t get a response from Sykes either on how the recovery of my coats is going so I guess they’re now lost.

    . It is a privilege to spend time in Marazion. You wake every morning to the sight of St Michaels Mount in a well appointed and very clean home. All appliances and anything you could wish for are in this holiday let. A real home from home. Thanks for letting us enjoy this part of the world.

  • "Nana's house was like a home from home (but even better!"

    ). The location was fantastic boasting a beautiful view of St Michael's Mount from the bedroom and outside a bench in the sun looking at the sea. The host had thought of absolutely everything you could need on a holiday so you really don't need to worry about home comforts that might be missing. It was immaculately clean and the decor was lovely. The lady who was cleaning the house was really friendly and helpful and phoned us to tell us the place was ready early for us. There was a delicious cream tea waiting for us. We absolutely loved our stay there and cannot wait to return.

  • "I have a car that is 444 cm in length and it was just possible to back it into the garage given the buildings close by."

    The car fitted in the garage with 5cm to spare on height and length. There was no other nearby parking. There were no instructions for the induction hob or cooker. I found out from google that the hob did not work unless a saucepan was placed on it. The key safe was unreliable. We found instructions for the refuse collection which we left in a more prominent place. This was quite comlex and not followed by the previous occupants. However, the cottage was very well equipped, clean and tidy and we enjoyed our stay.

  • "The accommodation was fabulous perfect location."

    A couple of recommendations would be extension leads in the bedrooms because plugs were not near the mirrors and when you are you are using hairdryer and straighteners it was awkward. Also a footstool in the kitchen would be helpful for the top cupboards as being only 5ft was difficult to get the prosseco glasses
