  • "What a wonderful place to stay."

    The property was immaculate and styled so you instantly felt at home. Loved the little touches such as the gift of prosecco on arrival and the books, games and dvds. Waverley was in a great location to enjoy an amazing sea view and close to Mevagissey to visit the shops, pubs and restaurants. We had no trouble parking outside the property and the area is so quiet and relaxing. We really enjoyed our time at Waverley.

  • "This was probably the best equipped self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in."

    And the view in the morning from the upstairs bedroom, as the sun rises, is something to be seen As to position, we shopped local in mevagissy and since there was everything there we needed to prepare meals, cooked at home each evening. Not good for the local restaurants, perhaps. but good for the greengrocer, fish stall etc. Since we had our bikes with us, we managed to find somewhere to visit in easy reach every day and didn't use the car all week: brilliant!

  • "Waverley is a beautiful place to stay."

    The owner was incredibly helpful, he didn’t know the shower head was broken and as soon as he was aware he had it fixed in under 24 hours! There was a lovely welcome pack of milk, tea and biscuits plus a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge - amazing! The house was spotlessly clean and really comfortable with a view of the sea to top it all off.

  • "Very clean and comfortable, great location, comfy beds and sofas."

    As per other reviews, parking is an issue - could really benefit from using the owners garage alongside property. No WiFi after midnight - contacted owner but not resolved/feedback update during our stay. The shower fitting was broken and tied on with a plastic loop when we got there. Cheap/quick to fix but not done - this was disappointing as affected using the shower. Only one hand towel provided for the duration of the stay though bath towels provided in all bedrooms. Downstairs front bedroom was very musty. We ventilated it every day and it seemed to improve by the end of the stay.

  • "We had a good stay in Waverley."

    The house was very clean & very well equipped. The view from the front of the house was beautiful. The house was well suited for dogs and there are some nice walks along the coast path. The village centre is only a short walk and there are lots of nice shops. It is uphill back to the house, but there are stop off points up the path for a breather!

  • "The bungalow was perfect for us for the week with 3 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of lounge space and a lovely courtyard garden."

    One of the best things, which I don't think is given enough prominence is the view from the lounge and front bedrooms - it's to die for! Also, the nearest beach is just across the green area in front of Waverley and down a series of steps to Polstreath. The steps are not for the faint-hearted but worth it. Overall, a very positive and enjoyable holiday.

  • "Modern, stylish property."

    Property was very clean and comfortable. Nice comfortable sofas which in my experience is rare. Nice sea views and large grassed area opposite is ideal for dog exercising, the cliff edge is well fenced off. I think problems reported by previous reviewers must have been rectified as we didn’t find anything wrong with this outstanding property.

  • "A few minor hiccups such as noisy music from next door early evening however quickly resolved on our first night."

    Due to horrendous wind and rain water was sleeping through bottom of french doors. Front door locking system from inside bungalow completely failed after 2 days. Had to go out through back to lock from front. Owner was advised. Seating on 1 chair in kitchen broken unusable. TV too small for lounge. Really could do with a couple of portable tv’s in bedrooms. Tiles on roof - from reading customers view these have been an ongoing problem banging on the roof, for sometime. However despite these ‘maintenance’ problems’ we would consider staying there again albeit in better weather than the hurricane type weather we had there unfortunately.

    Thank you for your feedback. This property usually receives excellent feedback. We live close to the property and are on hand to deal with any minor issues quickly as long as the guest reports this.We do take a pride in maintaining our cottages and all scheduled work is completed when the season ends Thank you for your comments. We hope to welcome you back in the future to the cottage. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was beautiful, the location is stunning and in general was very cosy and clean."

    My only issue was the overwhelming smell of stale smoke, which was not good in a cottage advertised as ‘smoke-free’. It took us 3 says to get rid of the smell of smoke and we also had to wash our clothes as they were left smelling of stale smoke.

    Thank you for your comments, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the cottage and location. We can confirm this this is a smoke free property. The cleaners and owner noted no smell of smoke before your arrival or after departure. We ask customers to report any issues to ourselves or owners during their stay so this can be looked in to and put right for you as soon as possible. Thanks again. Property Owner

    Steep stairway to the king size bedroom which is the only room upstairs.. Lovely sun trap patio area. The pathway down to the beach was around 200 steps - only wanted to do this once as I don’t like heights. The path down to mevagissy was again steep but lots of places to rest if you need to - I am 65 and managed to walk back up no problem. Good choice of places to eat in Mevagissy- particular liked She Shells for coffee and cake.

    Unfortunately bathroom let it down as it needs updating . The shower flow very poor and mould around seals. Overall would give accomodation 8/10. Would be 10/10 if bathroom updated. Lovely spot above the bay. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • "We had a splendid week at Waverley."

    It was helped by the weather, but even in the rain, the bungalow would have been comfortable, although a bigger television might have been welcome. Our dog was made welcome everywhere. There was more than enough space for two adults, but with three proper bedrooms, five would still have been happy. The location was second to none, but some visitors would have to take the steepness of the hill into the village into account. The courtyard at the back would be very safe for children. Green space and wonderful views in each direction, right outside the front door. Interesting places within easy reach. The sort of place you go back to.

  • "Waverley was in a great location with a sea view to the front."

    In one direction it was a 5 minute walk down to Mevagissey and in the other direction was the coastal path and a steep walk down to a quiet beach. It was a good base for visiting lovely gardens and interesting places. The beds were extremely comfortable, kitchen well equipped and house light & airy. Would have liked a bigger bathroom with a bath as shower was very small but that would not stop me returning as everything else was so good.

  • "The bungalow was really nice in a fantastic location for sea views."

    There was always a parking space. But on a first come first serve basis. The bungalow had everything you would need for a holiday and more. Lovely touches when we arrived, scones, jam & cream. Bread and milk in the fridge even flowers on the table. The stairs to the up upper floor are very steep and roof very noisy in high winds. The shower is very small with not much power ( could do with updating). Whilst we didn't come here to watch the television. On rainy days and relaxing evenings we found the television to be very small. This would have been best for the bedroom and a larger one be for the living room. However this would not put us off staying again. The furnishings are very nice and high quality. The court yard garden is a good size and very secure for dogs and children. Overall we loved the Waverley and wouldn't hesitate to return.
