  • "Superb property."

    It was way better than expectation. Comfortable, clean, well laid out. Super bed. Above all, great location and a view to die for. Loved it so much, we've booked again. Highly recommended.

    Dear Fay, Thank you so much for your kind feedback. We are glad you loved it. See you next stay. Suzie Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property with stunning views in an amazing location!"

    We really didn't want to leave. We had two glorious weeks there and were very lucky with the weather. Zoe the housekeeper was very helpful and answered our questions promptly. The beds were really comfortable and the property was very well equipped with everything you could need. The tumble dryer was a God send. There are plenty of facilities in Coverack and all within a 5 minute amble down the hill. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Glad you had a fab holiday. Suzie Property Owner

    Beautiful views from the apartment and child friendly inside and in the garden . A nice personal touch with the home made scones/cream and flowers :) My only negative comment is that I felt that the high chair was not easy to keep clean and could be holding germs (perhaps a modern easy to clean one would be good) Thank you so much Fran and family

  • "We had a great time, but, this is being really picky, the exterior paintwork needs a little freshening up to match the photos in your website."

    The sea shows no mercy with exterior decor so this not a criticism, only a concern for the look of the building. Also, it’s nesting time now. The number of seagulls in the area was simply staggering, and their attention to the walls and windows was very apparent. They also made use of the my car roof to roost on overnight. By the end of the week, the car was assuming a different colour! I shall bring a tarpaulin next time! Many thanks, great time, great place, lovely people.

  • "I stayed at the Poop Deck with my husband and two dogs from 27th August until 1st September 2022."

    A long awaited holiday after the restrictions of COVID. When we arrived at the Poop Deck the property was filthy. Prior to booking, I had read earlier reviews some of which referred to the cleanliness of the property. I called the owner to inform her of the state of the property and sent numerous photographs. The owner agreed that there was “a lot of dirt.” The owner arranged for the property to be cleaned again the next day and also offered me compensation. The following day 4 cleaners spent for 2 hours to bring the property up to scratch. Even after 8 hours extra cleaning there were areas that had not been addressed. I told the owner that I would just finish the cleaning myself and not use the microwave (as it was still dirty) to avoid any more disruption to our holiday. I did receive compensation (not at the level I requested to compensate for the disruption caused) but was told that this was on the basis that I did not leave a review. Sykes Cottages would not comment when I raised this with then. Anyway, that said, the Poop Deck is in a great location and there is lots to do locally – we visited Roskilly’s Ice Cream Farm, the Seal Sanctuary and the Lizard. The garden is a little sun trap and was great for our dogs. The local shops, pubs and beaches are lovely. The property is well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Would I stay here again. Probably not.

  • "TLDR: Really excellent place for a quiet holiday - but watch out for the seagulls!"

    When we first arrived, "The Poop Deck" certainly lived up to its name, as we were dive-bombed by a very angry seagull that squirted us both with poop. Within 90 seconds we both had a significant amount of seagull poop on our jackets, t-shirts, trousers and shoes; It transpired that the Gull had 3 baby chicks nesting on the roof of the front door porch, and our attempt to carry our bags into the property was taken as an attack on the nest. Fortunately the property has both a washing machine and a tumble dryer; it also has a back door, so we used this for the whole holiday, though the position of the nest stopped us from using the balcony of the master bedroom. That said, the Poop Deck is an outstanding place to rent for a holiday, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and well decorated, has a lovely split-level back garden, part of which is quite secluded but still catches the sun from midday onwards, and the sea view is quite simply the best we have had; even though the property is some distance back from the beach, there is better than 120 degrees of sea view from the main picture window in the large lounge (and also from the balcony of the master bedroom, seagull-permitting). The furnishings appear to be new, and the kitchen is well stocked with quality utensils, crockery and cutlery. Everything smells fresh and clean; there is even a quiet air-con unit that keeps things pleasant too. The WiFi is excellent (though the router boxes in the master bedroom could do with being shrouded a bit at night as there are many blue LEDs). The local shops are five minutes walk away (and seven minutes back, due to the gradient) as is the pub/hotel, 2 restaurants and a takeaway - also there is a second hotel along the beachfront that also serves food to non-residents and has a small bar. In the harbour one may hire kayaks, paddleboards and even windsurfing gear from the RYA training centre. Would we visit again? Absolutely, yes! Thank you for a very relaxing stay.

    Dear Alwyn Thank you for your feedback (and huge apologies for the sea gulls - despite the deterrent placed on the porch roof - unfortunately there is nothing we can do now the chicks have arrived - we will look for an alternative deterrent in the autumn to prevent this from happening again). I'm glad that you found the apartment clean and well presented and enjoyed the views from the living room. We are planning to make the windows in the living room even bigger in the autumn with sliding doors (and juliette balcony) to make the most of the view. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back again ... Property Owner

    The apartment has wonderful views, is quiet, very well appointed and comfortable. The garden is enclosed for the dog, the beds are extremely comfortable and the situation wonderful. I would thoroughly recommend, but be aware that it is up a very steep hill and has steps to the front door. We like that because it keeps us fit!

  • "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.

    Thank you very much for your lovely feedback and I’m really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are aware that the sun can be quite bright in the lounge and in the autumn have some building work planned. We are replacing the long window with sliding doors and a Juliette balcony. We intend for the sliding doors to have integral blinds. We are also increasing the size of the front window and again aim to have a window with integral blinds which should offer more protection from the sun. Thank you for your kind feedback.

  • "The poop deck is in a fabulous location with a wonderful view made so much better when halfway through our stay the dirty windows were cleaned."

    The general cleanliness of the apartment was VERY poor with thick dust and hair on skirting boards in corners and on the bathroom floors. The apartment had obviously not been cleaned properly for some time. This was made all the worse because in the details it clearly states that a deep clean is undertaken between letting. I sent the owner pictures of the state of the poor hygiene standards and she did apologise. But offered no form of compensation. I have to say that the situation really did spoil our stay and I could not recommend it. Additionally the accommodation is promoted for up to six people however in the living area there is one large sofa and one chair, if six people were staying there would not be enough seating. I would like Sykes to contact me to discuss our experience.

    I apologise for the standard of cleanliness you experienced, and wanted to ask the housekeeper to come and clean the areas which needed attention. However, you were clear in your email that you didn’t want this to happen. When Sykes contacted me about this, I was advised that compensation was not appropriate as I had not had the opportunity to rectify the situation. As regards the seating, there is a 4 seater sofa, a bean bag and a chair. Sufficient for 6 people. However, we have since added a stool under the window in order to increase seating capacity. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "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)

  • "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
