    The place is potentially excellent, but it desperately needs some good quality maintenance. The Jacuzzi room, Annex Bedroom in particular needs renovation and are looking very tardy. The Kitchen Cooker smoked as the Ovens need a good clean. The crockery was all bits and pieces no complete Set which a family would like. There were no Oven gloves which is a Health and safety issue. The Washing Machine leaked and from previous comments had been doing so for some time and gave up working. The Door closer to the Garage from the house was detached! So the Owners need to spend some money, not much but to get it looking the part. But I would book again if the above comments were acted upon, and I would recommend it then.

    Stayed for the weekend as 5 couples. Was disappointed to find the main bedroom (which is the loft conversion) has no door so is completely open to view from the bottom of the stairs, not so bad if just a family using the accommodation but not ideal for couples / two families etc. As other people have said there are several little things that would be easy fixes to make the house top quality again, leaking roof in dining room, broken windows on hot tub room and broken cover bracket for hot tub, no dressing table / shelving in outside bedroom. The location is fantastic and the place was a good standard of cleanliness and the hot tub was clean aswell. We enjoyed our break and felt even with the issues it was good value for money, but that would not be the case in peak times.

    Tamarisk House is located in a superb position, we went to Lusty Glaze at least twice a day to body board, and Newquay was about a fifteen minute walk. We went as a family of eight and the space and equipment available was good. All the beds,bedding and towels were beautifully clean. But .... the downfalls were many. There was no heating in the dining area or kitchen which was a great shame as the dining area was lovely. As for the hot tub...the lid was broken making it very difficult to operate,there were two broken glass panels in two doors,which according to the visitors book were like it this time last year,the whole area was very shabby. At the end of the week we decided to use the washing machine and it just flooded profusely, again a comment regarding this in the visitors book! We felt that the whole house needed a good dose of tlc. The price charged for our week did not reflect our expectations.

    House is situated in a fantastic setting with views that are spectacular at times. Easy to get to the beach’s and very easy to access. House itself has a beautiful kitchen and just needs some tweaks to make it into a higher star review. Dining room table only seats 8 although the cottage sleeps 10, there are two high seats but means that someone sits much higher and cannot reach the table. House has a few issues with cleaning, stains as you initially walk into the property can be very off putting, cleanliness of the rooms needs a little more detail. Hot tub room needs to be aired more often as very condensated and smells strongly. Tumble dryer needs looking at as doesn’t stop as door opens when switched on and may be a safety issue? Wi-fi is very inconsistent and some parts of the house do not have any service at all. Brilliant selection of books and kitchen equipment, extremely spacious and homes 10 people easily. Very quiet neighbourhood and easy walk into Newquay and porth.

    Lovely cottage plenty of room for our large family group. Excellent location and plenty of parking. Well equipped with nice finishing touches. Disappointed that the hot water for showers seemed to run out in the mornings if we all showered around the same time and the wi fi was a little hit and miss. Overall had a wonderful stay and would recommend.

    Location is fantastic for those who want to be within walking distance of a family-friendly beach. House is good - great living spaces, places to hang up wet beach stuff and the kids loved the ping pong table too! There are a few problems with it, which one of the previous reviewers mentioned. The wifi is terrible but that didn't trouble us - you don't go to Cornwall on holiday for great wifi. Main issues were only 8 seats at the dining table, the fridge in the kitchen doesn't keep things cold (but there is a fridge in the garage) and the hot tub needed cleaning. Having said all that, we still had a great holiday.

    Fantastic house in a fantastic location. Yes, it needed some bits of maintainence that would have brought it to another level, but overall, all 9 if us thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would live to return.
