  • "The views at the property are breathtaking."

    Outside seating on the two tiered decking make the best advantage of this, lovely to sit and relax watching the boats come and go. The house is very well equipped with everything you may need. Don’t forget your spare loo rolls though!! This is our third group visit and we would definitely recommend for a holiday.

  • "Great cottage, amazing views."

    Even the neighbour's are lovely. We will certainly return one day. I had a great sixtieth birthday with my family and the house made it all the more special.

  • "Very clean and comfortable house, perfect for 2 families with the bedrooms being on 2 separate floors."

    We had issues with the washing machine but this was rectified and a new machine was delivered ASAP which worked a treat. The location was great, overlooking Mevagissey harbour and the property had everything we needed for a perfect stay. Found the beds and pillows very comfortable and all the rooms were really warm and cosy. Lovely showers. Communication with the owner could've been a bit better (all via text), but think she may have a full time job too, so understandable I guess. Apart from that I would definitely recommend to friends and book if we were to visit Mevagissey again.

  • "Everything we wanted for an Autumn break."

    Our group consisted of 4 adults & 2 dogs and the house and it’s location were perfect. Mevagissey has several pubs and restaurants within walking distance and everywhere we went was so friendly and welcoming (and dog friendly). We had some lovely walks from the house and some lovely trips out to surrounding areas. A couple of things to be mindful of..the house is at the top of a very big hill, which means that the views are breathtaking but it it’s also a hill back up from the village and the house itself is set over 3 floors so a fair amount of stairs, certainly not an issue but is something to be aware of. Also don’t bother with The Lost Gardens of Heligan if you’re visiting at this time of year we found it tired and neglected and therefore very overpriced. The best bit for all of our group were the amazing views from the house, waking up in the morning and being able to watch the comings and going’s of the harbour with a cup of tea in bed was perfection.

  • "We really enjoyed staying in mevagissey, the house was lovely and much bigger than expected, it has everything that we needed however the standard of cleanliness was poor, upon arrival, I walked down to collect they keys and was greeted by a bag of dog poo!"

    The skirting boards were all really dirty with grime and hairs, there were hairs and dirt in all the corners of the rooms and the vanity unit beneath the basin in the top floor bathroom had so much dust inside that we couldn’t use it. It is a real shame that more attention to detail wasn’t paid to the cleaning as this is a beautiful house and as check in had been delayed by a further 2 hours for cleaning purposes, we were expecting more. We all agree that we would go back to The Pink House for the house and the setting but we would make sure we took plenty of cleaning products with us!!

  • "An excellently appointed house on 3 levels with all bedrooms having wonderful views of the harbour."

    Two large decking terraces catching sun all day.plenty of outdoor furniture, but a parasol would have been appreciated and a gas rather than a charcoal bbq as we didn’t think this was safe on decking. A few more black bags are necessary for waste and bedding The key safe could be better located at the top of the steps rather than at the bottom (26 steps!)

    We had a wonderful week. One thing I might like to see invested in was perhaps a king size bed in the double rooms. Being 6 months pregnant it was a bit of a squeeze & I ended up using one of the other bedrooms but other than that it was perfect.

  • "We found the en suite bathroom extremely small and it got very damp."

    The second double bedroom at the top of the house was undoubtedly the best room but no ensuite but a large shared bathroom. The property was in a wonderful spot for the town and fantastic views. A little bit scruffy in places, the kitchen had clearly been a blueish colour as quite a lot of paint is wearing off, but a big kitchen for all our needs non the less overall I would recommend it as it was in an amazing situation.

  • "Fantastic location within Mevagissey with the bonus of parking."

    We had a great stay, comfortable And the house had everything we needed, it is very well equipped. We read some reviews before our visit that said it was cold, we were there during Winter and in storms and didn’t find it cold. There are a few things things to point out which hopefully the owners can address. It is damp in one bedroom under the garage, there is a dehumidifier and it collected a lot of water which solved the problem, but as the house had been empty for a while before our visit when we arrived it felt damp and musty on arrival. The house really needs a good clean, although work tops and bathroom fittings were clean, walls, doors, skirtings etc were not and didn’t look like they have been cleaned for a long time. I’m not an obsessive cleaner but for the price would expect a clean property. One of the bathrooms hasn’t been finished, the fittings are lovely but door and woodwork hasn’t been painted and is scuffed and dirty, just a small thing but noticeable against a lovely fitted bathroom. Don’t let the above put you off, I’m just noting so the owners can address, we had a brilliant time and enjoyed our stay

  • "This property has a 5star rating which was not accurate."

    The views were stunning, the bedrooms were clean and comfortable except two of the single beds sheets did not fit the beds properly. Every morning the sheet would be practically off the beds. One of the mattresses in the twin room had stains on it which was uncovered with the sheet coming off nightly. There is a request to strip the beds for the housekeeper which we did, stripping mine which was the other twin there was a large stain on the duvet. The downstairs has a smell to it that no amount of air freshener can hide . The kitchen cupboards need a good clean inside and out, and a lot of the equipment needs replacing eg rusty tin openers and the thing some people use on top of there frying pan was covered in grease. This property could be stunning if it had some TLC spent on it. And lastly having to take all your recycling away with you is not 5star treatment. When you look forward to something for nearly a year and treat your family so you can all be together it was a disappointment. However we had a nice time together.

    Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry you did not feel the property was up to standard. All the duvets have been replaced with new ones and sheets have been replaced also. The kitchen and all it's contents have been given a spring clean. The mattresses always have clean thick protectors and the mattresses are all still fairly new, if there is any staining this will be addressed. Property Owner

  • "We arrived to be overjoyed that the house was just as predicted on the website, if not better."

    Well maintained and very clean with lovely soft coastal décor. The rear decking was a joy to relax on and watch out over the Sea and the Town of Mevagissywas very pleasant. I did have cause to call the owner and she rectified a very simple issue and it did not impact on our stay in any way. She was very pleasant and helpful . The Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, Microwave etc and not once did we feel at a loss of anything to do locally. Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan being close by just added to the House's convenient position. Would definitely recommend this premises to friends and family. Only one issue which was beyond the owners control, the useful information does say that there is recycling points at Tesco or Asda in Saint Austell, which was correct a few months ago, however, when we tried to do this on our way home, we were told by Store staff there that this facility has been removed and recycling has to go to a central area in St Austell but it closed at 4 pm each day. But this was no ones fault, just thought it would be useful to mention for the owner to update the information board. I would return every season if Annual Work Leave allowed! Thank you Jane and Sykes cottages . One of the best holidays I have ever had.

  • "We loved staying in the Pink House, the view is just sensational."

    The house has everything you need, nice comfy beds, good quality furniture etc. Mevagissey is lovely, lots of places to eat and drink without being too overcrowded with tourists. Neighbours were super friendly and helpful. My only niggle is, considering this is high end accommodation, it would have been nice to have enough dishwasher tablets and toilet roll to last the week.

  • "The Pink House is high-end self-catering accommodation in good condition with high specification facilities."

    When researching on Google Maps the property is located in typical suburban residential street but don't be fooled by its residential street location, the views from the living and sleeping areas are directly over the harbor and you can watch the boats going to and fro. In addition there are wide vistas of the sea and coastline all the way to Fowey, simply wonderful. You're only 10 minutes walk to the harbor with its many pubs and eateries, and access to the coastal path, for a week's stay you can easily park your car when you arrive and not use it until departure. A wonderful place to relax and unwind.
