An excellent holiday rental, easy access to main roads and numerous tourist destinations, whilst in a very peaceful location. Owners welcoming, friendly and helpful. The property which is well finished was extremely clean, and has all the facilities needed. Whilst there are no pubs or shops in the village there are many shops nearby. Also numerous dog friendly superb restaurants and pubs in the area. Having rented a number of holiday properties over the last few years this is one of the best if not the best.

The owners were wonderful and it’s a little gem of a holiday home. We really enjoyed our stay and were really happy with it. Only critique is the location as realistically you need to drive to be able to go anywhere.

Had a great two week holiday at Kataluma in Germoe. Germoe is a small pretty hamlet near Praa Sands in West Cornwall. You definitely need a car to get around and be aware of the small narrow country lanes! Kataluma was an ideal base. It was comfortable and met our needs. The owners Bill and Alice were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
