  • "This is a truly exceptional place to stay."

    Everything is spotless, everything you need in such a fantastic location, and sitting on the balcony looking out to St Michael's Mount is just to die for. I cannot recommend this highly enough to anyone, and we have already told Freund's and family about it. Also the Cutty Sark restaurant 30 yards away is so good we ate there three times.

  • "We absolutely loved our holiday at Star House."

    Due to the constant changes in Covid travel restrictions, we chose to spend our honeymoon in the U.K. rather than abroad and we were not disappointed. The house is fantastic and the owners had thought of everything to make sure the stay was as enjoyable as possible. We particularly loved the balcony overlooking St Michaels Mount. It was so relaxing to sit there on an evening on warm nights. The only inconvenience to the stay (we thought) would be the parking arrangements (parking in a nearby car park), but it wasn’t at all. It’s actually a nice walk to start/end your day. We loved it so much that we will definitely be back. We also forgot our house keys and Tamsin posted them back to us straight away, nothing was a bother. Thanks so much!

  • "A great holiday property."

    Very helpful owners, spacious rooms and a wonderful view of St Michael's Mount from the balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will happily revisit. The place was warm and comfortable and we appreciated the gifts left on the table as a welcome. Lovely that the owners have the shop below so we actually got to meet them. The 30 mins parking outside the property is very useful for arrival and departure as the main carpark for Marazion is a short walk away. Thank you for a great holiday in your holiday home. We look forward to visiting again. The only issue we had (which is nothing to do with the holiday accommodation) was that JustPark is a complicated system: their website wouldn't let us book a space before hand and the location number we had been given for the 7 day stay is different from the location one in big numbers on the machine which took us a while to work out. Once we'd cracked that all was fine.

  • "Star House is a beautiful holiday home with stunning sea views."

    It is light and spacious with a very welcoming feel. Watching the sun go down from the balcony was amazing. The accommodation is arranged perfectly, the heart of the home being a lovely space for relaxing, cooking and dining. Everything we needed was there and the property was clean and well organised. The owners were very friendly and helpful, making us all feel relaxed and at home. I am looking forward to staying there again!

  • "Star House in Marazion was superb."

    The balcony has such amazing views it's hard to tear yourself away. We had breakfast almost every day on there and dinner in the evenings, not to mention several glasses of wine watching the sunsets. The house is very well equipped and big giving lots of space. Tamsin and Matt the owners are both lovely. Finding a bottle of wine and flowers on our arrival was such a welcome suprise after battling traffic. The house was so welcoming and clean we would have no hesitation in reccomending this property and will definately be back. Thank you.

  • "Second time we have stayed at Star house and it is very clean and comfortable."

    Tamsin & Mat are at hand if anything is wrong or if you have questions as they are in the shop below the flat. There is plenty of room and a lovely little balcony which over looks St Michaels mount. There is an information book in the flat and it has all the information you require with contact numbers and places to go. Last time we stayed the parking was a lot nearer but now Just parks has taken over and you now have to park in the long stay car park which is further down the road. This was our only issue as if we needed the car it is a good 5 minute walk to the car park. You can buy a weekly ticket via their web site for £50 or do what we did and look around their web site as people with large drive ways rent space out for your holiday and this only cost us £45.50.

  • "Absolutely beautiful property."

    Owners were so friendly and welcoming. Everything you need is there. Very thoughtful little touches like fresh flowers and a bottle of wine. Extra comfy beds and sofas. The views are amazing and we didn't want to come home. You can park for a short amount of time in one of the parking bays to offload luggage or shopping, then the main long stay car park is a short walk away.

  • "Wow what can I say, I didn't want to do a good review as I am worried that when I come to book again I won't be able to get it!"

    Prior to arrival we were called by the owner telling us we could get in early which was good as the traffic was light so were arrived in the area sooner than expected. The owners were super friendly and offered to help where they could if we needed it. We picked this place due to the vicinity of the beach and the views and we were not disappointed. We took our dog and due to staying off season he was allowed on the beach. This is something to remember as there are restrictions in the summer time for dogs on the beach. The shop below was lovely and if you book this cottage you get a 10% discount, I can tell you we made the most of that! It is situated in the middle of the village and very close to amenities, I can recommend the Godolphin for food, we ate there Sunday afternoon and the roast was immense. This was a lovely property beautifully decorated and plenty of room we could have stayed there weeks. The bathroom's were lovely and clean my daughter enjoyed the bath and the showers were spacious. We used the woodburner most evenings to add atmosphere and it kicked out plenty of heat, it was easy to use and set up. The kitchen had all you could need to cook up a storm which we did most of the time we were there. I cannot fault this place it was fab and we will stay again! Thank you

  • "Star House is a Brilliant base for a holiday, fully equipped for all you might need & ideally located in the centre of Marazion - next door to a post office/general store & a bakery that sells great pasties and cakes and across the road from a local pub - the Kings Arms."

    There are other pubs and cafes located close by. There are steps down to the beach within 30 seconds from the front door of the apartment, which is located above a gift shop. Both bedrooms, on the 1st & 2nd floor have views of St. Michaels Mount and the balcony attached to the top floor bedroom is the perfect location to watch/photograph the sunrise & sunset & the stars at night in a perfectly dark sky or simply sit and watch as people cross the causeway to St. Michaels Mount. The owners, Tamsin & Matt work in the shop on the ground floor are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. They told me of the best place to view a murmuration of starlings at sunset over the Marazion marshes. Overall Star House is a perfect base for a holiday & I am considering booking again for next year.

    Apartment is great. We will go again I am sure. Great location. One shower ran a bit hot, Matt kindly dropped in to check and the bedside lights in the lower bedroom are very dim, like a 1930s guest house!! A Toc H lamp as they used to say! We took a bright bedside light from upstairs. Tip top.

  • "Excellent, spacious accommodation in a stunning location."

    Although situated above a shop on the main street of Marazion directly opposite the Kings Arms pub, only the living room/kitchen overlooked the main street. The bedrooms were situated at the rear of the property with excellent sea views and views of St. Michaels Mount. Very quiet at night. 2 bathrooms, 1 en-suite plus a separate toilet in the utility room so family members are not queueing for the facilities. 1 criticism, no wardrobe or hanging rail in either bedroom, could do certainly with a hanging rail in each, but plenty of drawer space. Highly recommended and would certainly return

    It was an especial treat to sit on the balcony watching the boats ferrying people to the Mount and back when the tide was in.The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The location was perfect: close to the shops and pubs of Marazion, as well as the beach and causeway to St Michael's Mount. Supermarkets were a short drive (or bus ride) away. We were able to park in the public car park a short distance away, at the cost of £4.50 per day. As well as using the car for visiting places outside Marazion, we were also able to use the bus direct to some places, or by changing at Penzance. We had a fabulous holiday and would be more than happy to return to Star House/recommend it to others.

  • "Wow! What a find."

    A superb apartment in a magnificent setting. A clean, comfortable and well styled apartment with stunning views of St Michael's Mount. The location was perfect with shops, eateries and the local pub all on the doorstep and a park for the children just a few minutes walk away. For those like us who do like to cook meals in, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils. Matt and Tamsin are fabulous hosts and always happy to help. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine after a long journey were a lovely touch. The apartment is great for children and there is plenty to entertain them with. A walk over the causeway to St Michaels Mount is a must and the local museum was very interesting. The beach is close by and always a winner whether swimsuit or wellies weather! We also enjoyed a day trip to St Ives which is just a short train ride away. Overall, a very enjoyable, fun and relaxing stay. We would love to return to Star House for another holiday.

    Fantastic location - so easy for early morning or late evening walks along the beach. Our boys absolutely loved the property and want us to build a balcony at home (although replicating the spectacular view of St Michael’s Mount won’t be easy!) The parking was really easy to manage (even over the busy May half-term). No need to be concerned about the property being over a shop - we were never disturbed, and indeed it was quite a bonus having such a lovely shop right on your door stop. We highly recommend a stay at Star House.

  • "What a delightful holiday cottage, clean and comfortable with all mod cons and smoke/heat alarms/carbon monoxide sensors provided."

    All you need for holiday convenience is there – wi-fi, usb charging sockets, heating, hot water, wonderful showers and a deep bath with a sea view, a dishwasher (so you don’t have to, you are on holiday!), washing machine, and iron and ironing board (not for me on holiday!). After a busy day out, you can relax on the balcony watching the sun go down over the Gem in Cornwall’s crown, St Michael’s Mount, perhaps chill out by the log burner listening to the Bluetooth speaker, or listening for the town clock chiming the hours, or maybe watch a film on the TV. And when the wine runs out, the shop is just next door! We cooked some delicious meals in the well utensiled kitchen but if that’s too much effort you can stroll outside to the Kings Arms in 10 seconds or the Godolphin Hotel in 30 seconds and delicious fish and chips are only one minutes’ walk away if you want to eat out. Star House is both kid and dog friendly with large bright rooms, comfortable large beds and for the children, fantastic bunk beds – and if it’s raining outside, the house is ideal for a superb game of hide and seek. The extremely friendly owners, Matt and Tamsin are always available to help if necessary and we appreciated the welcoming bottle of wine and bunch of daffodils that welcomed us when we arrived. Thank you both for creating this high quality new holiday accommodation for us to enjoy and make some happy family memories in. The entire process of booking with Sykes was simple and efficient and we would definitely do so again.

  • "As you can see from our ratings above we would highly recommend this holiday accommodation to those who wish to just chill or as a base for those wishing to explore the Cornish Peninsula (a walkers paradise)."

    Marazion has everything in respect of pubs/restaurants/tea rooms, a general store and gift shops. You must walk the causeway to St Michael’s Mount if only to say that you did it! If we had to find any negatives with our stay we were unable to purchase a weekly parking ticket, although the parking attendants were particularly friendly and helpful in ensuring we didn’t incur the Authorities wrath or any penalties. The accommodation itself (in our opinion) would benefit if a microwave oven and more adequate cooking utensils could be provided but this is just mere detail that did not deflect in anyway our fantastic stay. Tamsin & Matt the owners were found as were the locals most friendly and helpful in every way.
