  • "A delightfully modern house with supberb amenties and first class bed linen and towels too."

    The garden is totally private and lovely to sit in. Comfortable beds an d very roomy bedrooms. I will certainly be booking a stay there next year. Very central in the town to many amenities. Very well positioned.

  • "This is the second year on the run we have spent our summer holiday here."

    We absolutely love it! We can’t wait to return next year. The house is beautifully furnished throughout, there is every appliance you need possible. The location is perfect, across the road from the beach, it’s an ideal location to be close enough to the town with being right in the town if that makes sense. Denise the house keeper is always on hand to help with anything you need. We really appreciate you sharing your home, thank you x

  • "It was absolutely perfect!"

    Perfect location just off the main road in Newquay. The cottage was as described except I thought the garden was better then described and we enjoyed a couple of BBQs sat outside in the evening sun. The only jiggle I had was there was only one bin but Newquay uses two bags (one for general and one for recycling). We had to keep the recycling bag on the counter to stop the dog going through it so it would have been good to have had two bins in the kitchen. Otherwise I can’t fault it and will be hoping to return again

  • "Generally nice property."

    Unfortunately, dishwasher full of dirty pots , old ladies razor in shower , shed full of last weeks rubbish. Also , it would have been nice to know scaffolding and building work was going on to side a rear of the property. Banging constantly aggrevated dog which I'm sure pleased neighbours and builders banging as early as 8am not really what you want on holiday. We recently stayed with self cater cornwall at Easter at Zinc close to fistral. They informed us several times before we arrived that building work was going on and gave us a discount as compensation upfront not after we arrived and raised it so we had a choice. Overall due to the above we were a little disappointed by what we got for what I would consider a premium holiday let. I would be interested to hear your views on the above. Jason

    Thank you for providing your feedback. Our housekeeper on this occasion did overlook the dishwasher load and razor. She is always on hand to assist with any problems that arise for our guests but was not made aware of these oversights at the time. We have no control over any maintenance work that our neighbours choose to carry out on their own properties. Of course, should we decide to perform works on our property we would certainly ensure that any booked guests would be informed in advance. Property Owner

    Parking outside the house is big plus. It’s a short walk to the beach and shops perfect location. The enclosed garden was a must for us as we have a Jack Russell he absolutely loved the garden sitting in the sun. I will definitely be coming back to this property and would recommend. Denise the house keeper is brilliant nothing was too much trouble, we had one problem I called her and she was at the house in no time to sort it out

    Very well equipped. We didn’t want for anything. Housekeeper did a great job and left us a cream tea and milk in the fridge. The beds were really comfy. The property is ideally situated to explore Newquay with lots of shops, restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Tolcarne beach is a two minute walk from the house and when the tide is out you can walk to Fistral. Lovely outside space which is secure for dogs. One of the best properties we have stayed in.

    Didn't want for anything. 1st Class property. Only slight problem when we arrived. Couldn't open the back garden gate ( keypad code didn't open the gate) However, very quickly resolved when we phoned the housekeeper. She turned up within 5 minutes and provided us with 2 sets of keys and escorted us into the house. Very good service including cleanliness of the house provided by the friendly housekeeper.Well done!!

  • "We had such a lovely stay!"

    The accommodation is absolutely fabulous. It is just as described and very spacious throughout. Location is superb, the beach is a short walking distance and all of the beaches are all beautiful. The only issue we encountered was a squeaky bed on the first floor, however the housekeeper arranged for this to be repaired Hence the slight marking down on comfort. I would re-visit and recommend!

    We have now replaced the bed with a king size divan style bed, no more squeaks! Property Owner

  • "5 Ocean Heights was well appointed and although similar to a property we stayed in at Newquay last year it was better equipped."

    It is in an excellent location for the local, beaches and town, whilst Holywell and Crantock are just a couple of miles away, just 2 of many lovely beaches. The property was really clean and had a few little touches like the scones, cream and jam, tea, coffee etc which other let's lack. Denise the housekeeper kept in touch in case of need. The rear garden was safe and secure and parking right outside. Only one thing let it down and that was the double bed on the first floor which was very creaky. Luckily we were able to use the 3rd bedroom. A great house and better value than an almost identical property we rented in Newquay last year. Definitely one to try.

    We have replaced the double bed in question with a king divan bed, no more squeaks!!!! Property Owner

    Everything was clean, there was plenty of space and it was decorated/furnished to a high standard. There is some lovely art work in the property which I am looking at purchasing for our own home. The friendly housekeeper Denise was on hand should we have needed anything. The complimentary cream tea was a lovely touch, It was such a relief to have the town centre and Tolcarne beach within walking distance, which meant no early starts, fighting for parking spaces. We made some lovely memories as a family and highly recommend this property to others.

  • "The double bed was basically broken."

    We asked the housekeeper to fix it but even they tried they said there was a lot of movement in the bed. It kept us all awake every time someone rolled over, I could hear it in the room above!! The building site at the end of the road was noisy as well. It wasn’t a relaxing break and for £2k for the week we were extremely disappointed.

    he loose bed frame was brought to our housekeeperâ??s attention and an immediate fix was done to secure the frame. We endeavor to maintain our house to the highest standards and replace and improve fixtures, furniture and contents on an ongoing basis. Everything in our house, including the house itself, is four years old or newer. As issues arise they are dealt with immediately. Property Owner

  • "When we arrived at the accommodation there was a funny smell of which we had to buy our own air freshener automatic dispenser to try and mask it."

    However on our second day we returned back to over 50 big blue bottle flies. All the windows downstairs had been closed before we went out. We contacted the housekeeper who came round straight away and had someone come out to look who found no reason for them. We tried to find a cause and looked under the kitchen units and was met by rat droppings and rat poison. For the next 2 days we had to spray potent fly spray as we left to come back to 20/30+ dead flies. The work surfaces and floor was covered in dead flies. If we were able to find alternative accommodation in Cornwall (not for lack of trying) we would have left. We opted to stay in a self catering property so we could cook ourselves but we did not feel comfortable with this having seen rat droppings and the dead flies. I have video and photo evidence of this and would appreciate someone contacting me to discuss further

    The pest control issue is very unfortunate and not, as pest control informed us, unique to our property. As soon as this problem was identified we have been dealing with deterrents and are addressing the entry point to eliminate any future unwanted activity. Property Owner

  • "Great location for the beach and only a short walk to the zoo."

    House was lovely but needs more comfy seating we were ok because we only had small children but if there were more adults there only 1 sofa and 1 chair. We expected the house to be spotless because of being closed and deep cleaning being done but under the sofa was dirty, splashes of tea on the wall and cupboard and we had to clean the hair out of 2 plug holes as the water wouldn't drain away so definitely not as clean as we would have liked but the house is beautiful and the beds were super comfy but a little small but we are used to king size. Views are not the best but its only a couple of minutes to the beach so that was great. We would go again even with the few cleaning issues.

  • "Generally I would say that the holiday accommodation was very good as were the instructions as to how to get the key etc."

    It was lovely and well equipped too. What was really nice was the milk and cream tea and the texts from the housekeeper, Denise letting us know when the accommodation was ready on the day of arrival. The only thing that was a slight negative was that we had to buy some new duvet covers and change the bedding as it had a strange smell and there seemed to be some hairs in the beds too. I think maybe this was oversight as previous feedback from other customers had commented as to how clean the accommodation was... I did have to wipe the kitchen down as well as the table mats as they were sticky with old food. This was only a little niggle. We had a lovely holiday and like the Ocean Heights accommodation. It is well located to visit Newquay’s beaches, zoo, aquarium as well as other locations. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Close to the beach and town and dog friendly. This is the first time I have taken the dog on holiday and the garden was good for him to run around and find shade in the hot weather. The photos don't do the property justice. It's really beautiful and tastefully decorated. It was also great to have 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets. It was great to walk a few yards up the road in the evening and catch the sunsets. Walked to other beaches, around a mile to Fistral and then Towan beach as dogs aren't allowed on Tolcarne beach near the apartment which is worth mentioning. We had a great time and we may even now relocate after 26 years of returning to Cornwall.
