Me and my family had the most lovely experience staying here. The property was spotless when we arrived. Beds beautifully made, the house was kept very tidy and clean and had all of the information you could possibly need in a very useful, clear and easy to understand booklet. The owner had kindly writen out places they would recommend visiting and all of the best restaurants to try. We visited most of the restaurants in St Agnes and had lovely meals every time. We also visited lots of the local areas and beaches and had lots of fun getting to know all of the lovely local people. It was especially perfect for us as a family with young children as there are children's books and toys in the house for them to use as they please and once they had gone to bed what topped everything off was that we could relax in the hot tub on the balcony overlooking the beautiful views of St Agnes as it lights up at night. I would recommend this property to anyone and have already told all of my friends and family to get booking. Will definitely be back next year!
