  • "Lovely property, exceptional views and great location with access to lots of walking routes and secluded coves as well as an excellent local pub, restaurant and shop."

    We tried them all. Would have liked a blind or curtain on the windows in the lounge but this wasn't a massive issue. The garden is lovely with plenty of room and a sun trap for most of the day and is fully enclosed which was ideal as we had our mini daschund with us. Good to see that the parking area for flat 2 was being improved as it is advertised as parking for 2 cars and as it stands it would have been a bit of squeeze, once the drive area is complete it will have ample room for 2 vehicles. Overall an excellent stay in an excellent location. We will definately reccommend/return in the future.

  • "The property was very comfortable and clean with a well provisioned kitchen, with all the utensils needed."

    There was an excess of space for our needs (2 adults and a dog), and we only used the main bedroom; in which the bed was so comfortable we are prompted to replace our old one with the same. The position was excellent providing fantastic views and easy access to the coast paths and Coverack just a couple of hundred yards down a quite steep hill. We had a brilliant week, a recommend this property. (Hidden gem of the holiday: Roskilly's farm for ice cream, wood-fire cooked food and breakfasts - just a mile or so the other side of Coverack)

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I hope you had a safe journey home? Hope to see you again. S Property Owner

    Sea views from the lounge and main bedroom are lovely. We would certainly recommend the Poop Deck to our friends.

  • "Fabulous property (our second visit) but the bathrooms were not very clean with pubic hair at the back of both toilets."

    Otherwise , lovely.

    Dear Charlotte I would like to let you know that we have taken your feedback very seriously. I have fed back to our housekeeper. I’m glad you enjoyed your time at the Poop Deck. Property Owner

  • "This property is ideally situated on the hill overlooking the bay."

    It has 3 good sized rooms (two double & one twin). I only used the en-suite master bedroom which had a comfortable bed and I assume the others are to the same standard. Showers worked well and water was always hot as well in the kitchen. Kitchen is compact but functional with plenty of utensils, pots etc and a welcome gift of scones, jam and cream was a nice touch. Lounge/diner also a good size with TV capable of Netflix and Amazon Prime although Satellite signal went down a few times on normal TV channels. Garden table outside sliding doors I am sure would be used in the summer as well as the back garden which has seating and views for the sunset glass of wine. A well presented property but with a few things to bear in mind. Tumble dryer is in a cupboard under stairs and I did not use it for that reason. Lounge does get hot in full sun as there are no curtains. Parking would be fine for 2 small cars but only 1 SUV. Only downside for me personally is that it is not on top floor.and whilst there was only one quiet couple in residence while I was there, I could still hear them walking about above the lounge and climbing stairs. 3 couples with kids would have been a problem.

    Thank you for your feedback Trevor. I would like to reassure potential customers that the apartment upstairs is owned by a couple who are always quiet and considerate and they don't rent it out. We have never had any complaints regarding the occupancy of the flat above us. Property Owner

  • "Great week again in Coverack at the Poopdeck for the second year running."

    Plenty of space for the kids to run around. Delightful village including Elizabeth’s pasties and Archies Loft ice creams. Shame next years rental prices have been inflated again. From around £1k per week last year to around £2.5k for next year. Might have to look elsewhere.

  • "A great place!"

    Last week we tried to book for 30/6/23-21/7/23 but have been told the dates are not yet available, however friends of ours last week booked 30/6/23-14/7/23 for another house in the same village through Sykes, so I am hoping this can be sorted out?

  • "Beautifully furnished apartment, the photographs don't do it justice."

    Spectacular sea views from the lounge and master bedroom. Situated in a picturesque village with local pub and restaurant/take away. Easy access into southwest coastal path.

  • "Enjoyed a relaxing break, appreciating the fresh flowers and cream tea welcome plus bottle Cornish Milk."

    Spacious comfortable apartment, one more armchair required if at full capacity. Excellent locality, Coverack made us welcome and dog friendly. Felt safe ( covid) would love to return to the area. Downside that needs improving, lighting in en-suite bedroom required, can’t see into wardrobe with only a bedside light available. Probably a one off but not nice to find recycle bin in kitchen still full and frying pan with used oil still in it on ( late) arrival.

  • "Outstanding house, location and facilities."

    The garden is well kept and suitable for outdoor entertaining and secure for children. Views are breathtaking, especially when watching at sun rise. Village of Coverack 5 min walk with all necessary shops. Convenient for day trips to Penzance, Minack theatre and the delightful beaches of Porthcurno and Kynance. Great place to stay and have already booked next years holiday. Only one word of warning: this will become your new regular annual destination for summer holidays!
