Bucket of Blood across the street was very good. Took cabs and trains as we didn't have a car and were able to enjoy Marazion and St. Michaels Mt. As well as St. Ives and Minack theater.. Lockbox was a little difficult to work. Comfortable beds and good supply of kitchen amenities. Nice to have 1/2 bath downstairs. Certainly a very positive visit.

The owners left a little welcome basket and some basics in the fridge on our arrival. The hot tub was very good and we were shown how to get the best out of it. Would definitely recommend.
