  • "Excellent location."

    View of the sea from the windows - WOW. Being able to see the Sunrise and Moon rise huge bonus Property was as described, clean and tidy with excellent facilities, basically, home from home. Property owner was very friendly and accommodating. Short coastal walk from local amenities. Definitely, will be looking to stay here again.

  • "Great location for sea views, Mevagissey is a lovely harbour village with nice restaurants, food outlets and shops, the property is very spacious, everything catered for, good wifi, only thing I could not find in the house were clothes pegs for the washing line and maybe some cushions could be provided for sofa's/chair."

    Will consider revisiting in the future and will also be recommending this place to others.

    Many thanks for lovely feedback. Clothes pegs are in a cloth bag in tall cupboard in kitchen where washing basket is. Your right about cushions. We were advised to remove all cushions during covid first wave of covid. Guests used pillows off bed but I totally appreciate that’s not ideal. I will see if I am able to buy new cushions. Good news - I’ve just ordered new nautical cushions. Thank you again Property Owner

  • "The cottage had an amazing position and beautiful views."

    Everything about the cottage was lovely and slept like a log. We were really sad after arriving home and facing up to reality that our holiday was over.

  • "An excellent place to stay."

    We spent a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks at Sea View. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and the neighbours were so friendly and helpful it felt like home. It's comfortable, well furnished with all you could want and it is an easy walk into the town. And the hill coming back up is good exercise! Lovely views across the bay especially at sunrise.

  • "Very nice cottage with a great view on the sea."

    Really close to the beach and harbor of Mevagissey. We had a really great stay and enjoyed our holiday. The shower has to be turned on through an extra switch outside of the bathroom. This took us some time to figure out and a short explanation on the welcome message would have been great.

  • "Just spent a lovely week with my family ."

    The cottage is amazing . We all felt that lovely feeling when we walked in with everything that you needed. Very spacious, clean , comfortable beds. A mixture of old a new furniture to give it a lovely feel. The views well blew us away. The host contacted my husband and was on hand at all times. Easy check in . To be honest I would not have wanted more and decided to stay a extra night. The kids loved it . If you are a family I suggest you give this gem a look at . Beautiful walks . The harbour took about ten minutes and was stunning . Thank you to the host of sea view for letting us share the love with you. Looking forward to coming back. Superb property. Ten out of ten.

  • "Location was perfect."

    As mentioned previously there are a few fundamental issues. The sofa was very uncomfortable and there were no cushions...which were shown on the website. The oven markings had worn off so you couldn't tell which setting you had selected. The back door was nearly impossible to lock/ unlock which was both dangerous and frustrating. The front door was on occasion difficult to lock as well. The windows and doors really need replacing. The banister at the top of the stairs was very wobbly and I think with a small about of force would give way. This felt very dangerous for the children so we didn't let them up the stairs. There was also a broken floor board in need of repair. The view from the front of the house was the sea which was great... but the ad failed to mention what looked like landfill to the rear of the property. There was a very strange dripping noise but we didn't know from where. This made it hard to sleep. The kitchen cupboard doors didn't shut properly and kept springing open as well as banging into other miss aligned doors. But on the positive side the beds were comfy.

  • "The cottage is in a perfect setting overlooking the sea, with stunning panoramic views."

    It is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The courtyard garden is a really peaceful sun trap and was lovely to sit out there. The nearest beach is just a few minutes walk from the doorstep, and Mevagissey a 10 min downhill walk. We had a lovely holiday here , the kids loved having a playground on the doorstep and would recommend to anyone except those with mobility issues as it’s at the top of a very steep hill that you need to go up and down to get into town. The only feedback I would give us that the plates although lovely , are too big for the dishwasher, so they stop it from circulating properly and the dishes do not get fully cleaned.

    Stayed here for two weeks and it was perfect. Fantastic views and location- just a short 10 minute walk in to Mevagissey, although quite steep and narrow in places. Very very well equipped bungalow- probably one of the best- owners have thought about everything and items are good quality. Also very spacious accommodation and a lovely sun-trap little garden. Owner is very pleasant and helpful- we had an issue with washing machine and it was sorted straight away, communication excellent. Couldn’t ask for better. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again

  • "Wow! Now that is a Sea View!"

    Best view ever. The bungalow was very well equipped, comfortable and clean. We did notice there wasn’t a welcome gift, only some people mentioned one in the visitors book, but really no big deal. I have to admit to breaking to certain hooks, apologies for that. Our six year old was pulling back the curtains. However, we did fix the headboard which was not attached at all to the double bed which made it very awkward for sitting up in bed. It was in a fabulous location and we were pleased to leave the car a couple of days and spend some time locally. Lots to do for families if weather is kind which it was for us. We would love to return

    Only 10 minutes walk to the centre of Mevagissey along the coastal path (note that the path is steep and has steps if you have limited mobility). The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Mevagissey is a charming and friendly Cornish fishing village, with some great food and pubs. The only slight difficulty was that a parkng spot outside the property was a bit tricky to find at times.

  • "The actual cottage was more roomy than we had anticipated, and actually exceeded our expectations in terms of accommodation, facilities and situation."

    The outlook was incredible, and the green space in front of the cottage was very extensive and easy strolling for the two elderly ladies of limited mobility whom we took on holiday. The sea view was glorious. The usually-deserted beach was 10 minutes walk away, and reached by a path and metal stairway of 195 steps - excellent for a before breakfast plunge in the sea and exercise to give one an appetite ! A very minor problem with a tap was sorted out very efficiently by the owner, and we were made to feel thoroughly welcome both by her, and by people whom we met in the delightful little port town of Mevagissey. We hope to be able to enjoy Sea View and the area again.

The property

Picturesque Mevagissey is an historic fishing port where narrow winding streets filled with interesting shops, cafes and restaurants, centre around a bustling working harbour.

On either side of Mevagissey are sheltered bays and sandy beaches.

To the north is Pentewan Sands and to the south the quieter beach at Portmellon.

About half a mile from the village centre, overlooking a grassy common and with magnificent, panoramic vistas is the aptly named Sea View.

Inside, Sea View has been modernised to create a bright and stylish home with a nautical theme.

On the ground floor, a huge picture window fills the length of house lounge/kitchen/diner with light and is perfect for admiring the view.

Also on this level are two bedrooms which share a family bathroom; a twin with sea views and a bunk room.

On the first floor the large double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and spectacular time-wasting views out to sea.

At the rear of the house is a sunny, enclosed patio garden - a real suntrap and for young families there is a small children's play area on the common.
