  • "The property was spotlessly clean."

    The cream tea waiting for us was a lovely thought and there were lots of little extras left for us to use. A lot of love and thought has gone into the property. The hot tub was so lovely after a day walking and very private. The apartment was very comfortable and very well decorated. The only problem we had was with parking. With a small car it would be fine but ours didn’t fit in the car park very easily. There are also not enough spaces for everyone. To go again we would need to take into consideration the cost of parking in the long stay car park for a week We loved our stay in Driftwood and would definitely go again with consideration to parking charges.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, unfortunately the parking is always an issue especially in Marazion . I have raised this issue many times . Property Owner

    The property was excellent and well equipped - The only major issue was not the property but the other people staying in the complex, they obviously have zero comprehension of Cornish roads and parking constraints - large 4x4's just are not suitable vehicles for Cornwall or the car park at the property

    Thank you for your feedback . Property Owner

  • "The description says "Ample off-road parking greets you upon arrival"."

    There are 9 spaces and 15 flats. 2 spaces had cars in them that didn't move the whole time we were there, some cottages had more than one car. This is not "ample". Had we been aware of the parking situation in advance we would not have booked this cottage. It's a shame because everything else is first rate. The description needs changing to accurately reflect the position. Parking in the long-stay carpark for the week is going to cost you a further £50. If you are happy with either using the long stay or don't need to park a car then I'd thoroughly recommend it.

    Thank you for your feedback. The parking is a problem and I’m sorry but that is out of my control. My property is advertised on a first come first served basis !! Not sure why it was advertised as having ample parking? I will look into this . Many thanks Debbie Property Owner

    Superb facility with all the comforts of home. Spotlessly clean and the hot tub provided a luxurious end to each day. The little touches like a Cornish cream tea on arrival made a real difference

  • "We found the property very clean and tidy on our arrival, and the welcome pack was much appreciated."

    We had a problem with the tv in the bedroom, Debbie the owner responded quickly to try and resolve the issue which I found out later in the day was the aerial cable. The biggest issue we had with our stay was the parking. Bad parking from other residents ment that it was impossible to park in the spare space. We think that you should inform your customers that the public parking will cost them an extra £50 per week.

    Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately the parking is a problem which is out of my control, it’s a private courtyard with not enough parking for all the apartments. We are hoping to resolve this problem in the future. Property Owner

  • "We were fortunate enough to meet the owner upon our departure, and we’re really happy we did so we could thank her in person!"

    The property was spotless, well kept, beautifully decorated & in a great location. The hot tub was amazing and well needed after all the walking we did! Location is great, parking in a long stay over the road if no spaces outside property available, price not too bad for 24hrs (£12.50) The listing does state dishwasher but there isn’t one. Not a problem for us as a couple but does need to be taken off facility listing. The owner made us feel so welcome, she had left a little welcome cream tea package, which was delicious. So many little personal touches really made us feel at home & welcome. I would highly recommend this property for a short of long stay!

    Thank you for the lovely feedback, Was lovely to meet you both . Property Owner
