    A lovely location and old bones of a house, sadly let down by an owner who obviously doesn't care. Both showers are awful, often no hot water available in either (yet plenty running from the bath), often coupled with no cold water in the bath. With small children near a beach having no decent washing facilities is not acceptable. This was reported as a problem last year and hasn't been addressed. Blaming it on water pressure is rubbish. A loft based cold water and hot water tank would resolve all pressure issues. Upstairs, the loo is separate from the sink and bath for no real reason - the wall between them could be knocked through easily. The electricity often went off in the afternoon. The rear garden wasn't accessible, was totally overgrown and water drained off the garden through the kitchen. The waste water pipe from the bathroom also had open discharge into the scullery. The tumble drier didn't work all week (the land lady gave us a bottle of wine as compensation). Lastly, the seal on the fridge was all split. A great location, but the holiday was almost ruined by the lack of decent, modern, washing facilities.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Sadly these comments were not made during the visit which is disappointing. We have spent thousands on upgrading the property over the past three years. Two qualified plumbers have stated that the showers work but the problem is that if you crank the temperature to maximum they have a safety mechanism that cuts the heating to avoid scalding - a safety feature for children. The waste does not pass through the scullery - this would not pass the cottage agents tests. The rear garden is isolated and is not part of the hire as a large decking is provided to the front of the property which has a sea view - do you really want to look at the back of a house when you have the Atlantic in front of you?

    Since we were all over 70 - and then some! - 36 steps up from the car to the cottage was perhaps unwise. It was however a decision we took knowing that was the situation. But this explains why we wouldn't book that place again. The furnishings were a bit worn - but the sun room was very nice and the views were to die for. The beds were fine - good and firm.(more stairs!) The images of the nearby eating establishments were somewhat misleading. If you have young children and want an informal atmosphere whenever you go - fine. Cornwall in the sun is delightful, and we were lucky with the weather. Nice week's holiday.

    Hillside house was very spacious, clean & welcoming. Very comfortable main bed. Very relaxing sofa. Having stayed for two weeks we really got to know the house & we would definitely recommend this house to anyone. It's not ultra posh & it's not shabby, but what it was to us was a nice welcoming retreat to come back to at the end of a day on the beach or a visit to nearby Penzance. It was very clean. Water pressure could be a problem upstairs in shower but we were fine using the downstairs shower ( Watch your head going into the downstairs bathroom I banged mine twice). The deal breaker for booking this house was the balcony, it was fantastic, a right sun trap and it's massive with an uninterrupted view of the sea at Praa Sands a short stroll away through footpaths down, we have a little baby in a pram so we had to use the road to get to the beach which is about a ten minute stroll including a unsurfaced road leading from the house to the main road about 400m. There are about twenty to thirty steps from the front door to the car park we had our grocery shopping delivered to the property so they carried the shopping up to the house. For us there were two places for slight improvement, the divide between balconies could have been more private,which for us unfortunately on our first week we had a heavy smoker next door which wasn't very pleasant especially with our ten month old baby. The other thing to improve on would have been wifi to check your emails this is a must for a modern family but at the fantastic price we paid for it were not complaining.

    The location of this property is fantastic, but it's not really designed for a family with young children. There's no garden and the windows don't appear to have any safety features. This is surprising given that bunk beds are provided. The shower provision is also poor and could be easily fixed. There was never any hot water in the downstairs shower and upstairs was very temperamental. I loved having no wifi, but my daughter and the children didn't, but as i know that wifi is being provided to all properties in Cornwall i expect this will be remedied for next year
