“Could not be much better”
Reviewed September 7, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The accommodations are comfy and clean... The view spectacular...a great central location for touring the many fascinating and scenic places throughout Corwall. Sun seeker is close to the town of Newlyn which is reachable by a somewhat steep footpath right next to the property. There are some good dining options in Newlyn and if one prefers to eat in the kitchen here is modern and certainly adequately equipped. It is a joy to prepare a meal as you look out the kitchen window onto a wonderful seascape view.

“Wonderful family holiday”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The bungalow is centrally located so everything in Newlyn was a short walk away. The views from the bungalow were amazing and the bungalow itself was lovely and very well stocked. The host (Richard) was very friendly and helpful and did everything to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible.

Newlyn has some lovely restaurants, the highlights being Italian Kitchen, Mackerel Sky and Lewis Fish and Chips - all 5-10 minutes walk from the bungalow. As for the surrounding sights? Too many to mention - it is a lovely part of the UK with many fantastic views and walks available.

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having read previous reviews we had high expectations and we were not disappointed. The accommodation was excellent as was the attention given to detail in order to allow us to have a trouble free stay. We had a great time visiting a variety of attractions that were easily accessible by car as well as walking around Newlyn, to and around Penzance.

“Even better the 2nd time round.”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was the 2nd time we visited the Sunseeker Bungalow and we were even more impressed this time round. The owners have made significant layout changes since we last visited which benefited us seeing as we now have 2 children, so the space was perfect.

There is plenty of room with 3 double bedrooms, one with en suite. A bathroom, kitchen and dining area and a sizeable living room. There are 2 sun traps, which is great and small garden too.

All facilities you will need are there as well.

Every touch is excellent from the welcome basket to the finishes of the furniture, kitchen and bathrooms. The view is amazing and sunset/sunrise over St Michaels Mount is fantastic.

The location is perfect and located out of the way, but close enough to get to great attractions.

Top 5 recommendations for visiting are:
1: Trengwainton Gardens
2: Carbis Bay
3: St Michaels Mount beach and park
4: Minack Theatre (not good with young kids)
5: Cornish Sea Sanctury.

Sennen Cove was lovely with a very nice restaurant over looking the sea.

We will definitely be back and highly recommend the Sunseeker as a perfect base for families and couples alike.

“Stunning views in a modern property with everything you could want”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in the sunseeker at the end of May into the beginning of June, yes we had fantastic weather which helped but what a place to stay. The property was easy to find following the instructions and the basket of goodies including cream and scones is an excellent idea. The property was clean and comfortable, well equipped with a full size fridge and dishwasher. The bedrooms were all very nice and comfortable and the views, well what can we say apart from we didn't put the tv on once during our entire stay. St Micheals Mount in the distance provides a beautiful vista. We completely unwound and relaxed. Richard has got this spot on and we would definitely stay there again. Thanks Richard and we would have no hesitation in returning.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A really nice place to stay. Access was slightly limited - entry via a steep path 10 yards or so down the side of the house. We had use of the garage at the top of the path to store bikes etc. The house itself had fantastic views over Penzance and Mounts Bay towards Marazion and St Michaels Mount. Lots of comfortable outside seating areas.
The house was warm and bright and all on one level except for the utility room in the basement. Beds were comfortable - king bed slightly on the softer side, superking firm, double in between, so something for all tastes. Lounge seating was one upright leather chair with footstool, 3 seater deep leather sofa, more comfortable than many I've tried, and one two seater deep feather filled sofa. Lots of hot water. Kitchen well equipped. TV and wifi worked fine. There are a few DVDs,, no books.
Welcome pack on arrival - the scones with jam and clotted cream were excellent!
Pedestrian access into Newlyn is 5 minutes down the steep lane - fine going down.........! In newlyn you can get everything you need - there is a small Co-op, a butcher, a greengrocer, a cheese shop which also sells artisan bread, a baker and a number of fishmongers. It feels much more of a normal working port than the touristy Penzance and other coastal resorts.
All in all a good place to stay and we would happily stay here again

Hello there.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, and so promptly too!
We are pleased to read you enjoyed your stay at the bungalow and made use of your bikes throughout the week. We have taken note of your comments regarding the books and re- located them from the sideboard games cupboard ( they were a little hidden away perhaps!) Many thanks once again and we look forward to seeing you all for another visit. Kindest regards Richard.

“Fabulous house with spectacular views”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We arrived after a long train journey and as soon as we opened the door to Sunseeker, our tiredness vanished! The house was modern, very clean and beautifully presented. The kitchen was extremely well equiped, and the welcome basket was indeed welcoming and had lots of lovey goodies.

There are four separate terraces, each with seats, so sun lovers....seekers..... Can move round with the sun. The views over Mount's Bay are world class, and being able to see the fishing boats leave and enter the harbour was picturesque and interesting. It is about 5-10 minutes walk down a steep lane into the village, perfectly manageable if you are reasonably fit. The main path to the house is steep but not very long, and tarmaced, so wheeled cases are fine.
Everything to make your holiday sucessful has been thought of, go and enjoy!
