About Joan Boon

Joan & Robin Boon live in Cornwall. Not too far from Crisalgo.

Robin's family have been connected with Trevone, Padstow and Crugmeer for many generations and therefore the area is very special to him.

Why Joan Boon chose Trevone

Crisalgo was passed to Robin in 2004. Robin and Joan then re-furbished the bungalow to use for themselves, family and friends and also for holiday letting.

What makes this bungalow unique

Crisalgo is ideally situated with sea views, plenty of parking and an interior that is suited to family holidays. We feel very fortunate to be able to spend time here ourselves.

Crisalgo - exceptional holiday home!

  • 5 out of 5
Crisalgo is a superbly comfortable holiday home. I have stayed there three times now and cannot recommend it highly enough. The tasteful blend of old and new furnishings gives the bungalow an air of quality. The kitchen area is spacious and well-equipped and the owner kindly provided several food items, including a delicious home-made lemon cake! The bathroom and bedrooms are aso of an excellent standard.
Although the location is quiet, it provides easy access to the North Cornwall area - and within a few minutes you can be walking along the cliffs or enjoying Trevone Bay.
I'm very much looking forward to staying at Crisalgo again sometime in the future.

Well located, well kept, great for families

  • 5 out of 5
We have already booked to go back to Crisalgo next Summer. Lovely house, great location.

We have boys, 4 and 6. They had plenty of room to avalanche their toys in the lounge if it rained (Though luckily it didn't). The layout is very practical, very spacious by the standard of holiday cottages, especially looking at value for money in the school holidays. The kitchen is well set out and has 3 or 4 work surfaces depending on how you use it (Important to us as we deal with some allergies, so we needed somewhere we could keep separate to prepare certain food). It's very easy to keep clean without worrying about wasting time while on holiday. The wide open glass across the front of the house makes for a beautifully lit lounge.

The garden is big enough to play in, the shed is very handy, and there is a hose which stretches into the garden, so it's straightforward to clean your wetsuits and store boards etc. The driveway fits a 4x4 and we had 3 guests so 3 cars on it at one point without any problems.

The street is quiet, with nice views between and above the houses of the sea and easy to drive down. For people visiting in August, important to note that the turn off is just above the point in the village where you risk being in a queue of giant Volvos waiting to get where you are going, so you don't risk scratching the side of the car every time you set off anywhere...

Trevone itself is the best beach we found for our kids - and while it's fun to drive to other beaches for a change, you cannot beat having a 5 minute stroll, and being straight by the beach, the surf and the rock pools. The farm shop in Trevone is 3 minutes away in case you fancy a croissant when you get up. The cafe and the surf shop by the beach are very fairly priced - twice they downsold us to cheaper stuff in the surf shop if they thought we were spending more than we needed to for occasional playing in the waves.

Rick Stein's pub (The Cornish Arms) is about 5 mins away (turn right as you leave Padstow and drive straight) and does a mean pint of prawns as well as more substantial meals. And Padstow within easy reach.

So, in all, we love Crisalgo - - it's a warm cheerful house to come back to after a day out, a day on the beach, or after a meal, and it's a great place to wake up and plan your day. Thank you Joan and family :)

Owner's Response: Always delighted when our guests enjoy staying at 'Crisalgo'. We do take great pride in providing a comfortable and clean 'home from home'. We are ideally placed in a quiet location within a very short walk to the beach.

Half term June family holiday in Trevone

  • 4 out of 5
This was a great bungalow, and I am in two minds about even writing a review to be honest, as I don't want it to get booked up when we want to return!

We went for June half term with our two boys aged 4 and 7. The layout was great. There is a hallway with a separate loo near the front door, and then one very large room which is split into a lovely, very well stocked, modern kitchen, a large dining area and a lounge/TV area. The layout works brilliantly for a young family, There are double doors through to a small internal hallway and there are three bedrooms leading off it, plus a clean, modern, comfortable bathroom. The double bed in the first bedroom was very comfy, and then there was a twin bedded room and another smaller bedroom which had a single bed with trundle bed underneath. All were beautifully clean, with comfy beds and great storage. The only slight issue we had was with the light curtains not blocking out enough light, but that's the only slight gripe we had with the whole place, and certainly wouldnt stop us returning.

There is a large private drive, and the cottage is situated up a private quiet road. The garden is big enough for the kids to play hide and seek and run around in. There is a pub at the end of the road (2mins stagger at most), and they let people use their pathway which cuts out the walk through the winding country lanes down to the beach. Instead, it's a 10 minute walk with boys stopping and looking at everything en route, or a 5 minute walk unhindered!

We love Trevone beach, it has easy access and a good little shop, cafe and toilets. The waves are good and the water quality is high, plus there is a lifeguard on duty. Its a 10 minute drive to Padstow, where parking is a bit of a nightmare, but it's a lovely little harbour town to visit. We had a few glorious sunny days, but then had bad weather (gales, storms and freezing!) but we were warm as toast with the heating on, and taught our sons how to play monopoly and scrabble from the well stocked games cupboard!

The cottage particulars we read on this site are accurate. The owners were extremely helpful, and left us a lovely welcome pack, including wine and a homemade lemon cake, which was much appreciated after a hellish trip from Manchester in the Diamond Jubilee M5 traffic jam!

All in all, we strongly recommend this bungalow but strictly on the basis that nobody else pinches the weeks that we want to go back there! Thank you for a lovely holiday Crisalgo

Great Location, Fantastic Accomodations

  • 5 out of 5
Our family absolutely loved staying here. The house was in a great location, just a few minutes away from the beach and was very well equipped.

In a nutshell: owners were very friendly and provided a delicious cake and some food essentials; beds were comfortable; there was a nice garden in the back; the kitchen had everything you could ask for (including plastic dishes for the kids); new LCD TV is great for rainy days or quiet evenings (has HDMI, perfect for laptop or game system hook-up); house was immaculate; and furniture was in great condition and very comfortable.

We highly recommend staying here if you have kids. We had 3 adults and 3 children (1, 4, and 7) and there was plenty of room. There was also a kid-friendly pub just a two-minute walk down the lane (great selection of ales for the parents, too).

The only thing lacking was heavy drapes or shades for the bedrooms - the rooms were pretty bright very early in the morning. Fortunately everyone was worn out from the long hours at the beach and trips to surrounding areas. You'll definitely want a car as well, as the only decent grocery is about a 5 minute drive away in Padstow.

Overall, this is one of the best properties we've stayed at in the UK and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

Ideal family holiday bungalow.

  • 5 out of 5
Crisalgo is a perfectly located spacious holiday bungalow. The bedrooms are comfortable (with a luxurious new memory foam mattress in the double room) and the bathroom is nicely decorated and the 'p' shaped bath is pure luxury!
The kitchen is very well-equipped and is part of an exceptionally spacious living/dining area in which to relax.
The bungalow is ideally situated for walking, cycling and enjoying the beach (which is 5 minutes walk away). There is a pleasant garden area around the bungalow and the adjacent decking is a lovely breakfast sun-trap!
The owner thoughtfully left a variety of provisions including a delicious home-made lemon cake and a bottle of wine which was very welcome after a long journey!
We have stayed at Crisalgo several times and cannot rate this delightful family holiday home highly enough.

Christmas 2009

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely break in Trevone over the Christmas period. Just what we needed - a real get away from it all holiday with my other half and our two young uns.

Favourite touches were the little welcome package of tea, coffee, milk, cereals and - best of all - home made cake!!! Thanks for that Joan, yummy!

Next best was the family sized bath. Pure luxury!

Great to be a ten minute walk from the beach and Trevone is such a peaceful haven to use as a base for exploring more of Cornwall.

Perfect.

Crisalgo is ideally placed to explore Padstow, the Camel Trail (on foot or by bycicle) and the rest of Cornwall. The Eden Project, Bedruthan Steps and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are all within easy reach. Cornwall boasts a large number of gardens that are a joy to visit including Pencarrow and Lanhydrock near Bodmin. Trebah and Glendurgan gardens are both close to Falmouth which is the home of the National Maritime Museum. Further afield are Lands End, the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, Geevor Tin Mine and the spectacular engine houses overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Botallack and much more!
