“Great accomodation in Falmouth”
Reviewed July 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Previous reviews of this property are entirely accurate. Very easily booked and accomodation exactly as described. Located in a quiet (bar the seagulls) residential area but just a mile from the town centre and beaches. Also off road parking and free wifi is always welcome. Plenty of storage capacity in bedroom and carpeted throughout.

Huge supply of towels etc - plus handwash, washing up liquid etc

Property was very clean and well kitted out with everything you could possiby need. Welcome pack was a bonus. Only slight snag for me was the bed was a standard length so being tall my feet sometimes hung over the end!

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found the house well equipped and close to local amenities. The bed has a high quality John Lewis pocket sprung mattress, 4'6" x 6"6". I do not think they do a longer version but thank you for your comments. We hope to welcome you again.

“Excellent place to stay and central to our needs”
Reviewed June 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We enjoyed staying at Carvinack and was central to our needs as all walks to wherever we went were ideal.

Thank you for the items you left for us, we didn't expect this so was a nice to see for our stay.

We would certainly recommend Carvinack to anyone we know who would need somewhere to stay in Falmouth.

“Comfy Cottage”
Reviewed October 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A very well-equipped cottage, spotlessly clean, warm, nicely furnished, great bed with cotton bedding. Lots of hot water. Owners very quick to respond and left a gift in the fridge, a nice touch. Off street parking, we walked into town, a good 30 minutes and it's a steep hill coming back, but you can drive & there are heaps of taxis. John & Richard.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable in our holiday home.
A direct route into town takes us approx 10/15 minutes on foot, a little longer for a flatter walk towards Event Square or the beaches. There is a local map in the house if required and we are usually available should a guest require directions or assistance.
We hope to welcome you back at some point.

“Five Star Accommodation”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This accommodation is one of the very best we have stayed at. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Fully kitted out - impossible to mention something not provided. Able to park within the boundary of the property.
This property is well situated for all the visitor attractions in South Cornwall. Plenty of good places to eat out and nearly all major supermarkets in close proximity for food shopping.

“excellen tstay in Falmouth”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a lovely home from home, It's equipped with everything you need for your holiday. The place is extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. We found it an easy walk into Falmouth centre, it was an ideal base if you wanted to explore that part of Cornwall. Andrew and Rachel are a lovely couple and make you most welcome. After a long journey it was nice to relax with a welcoming cream tea and bottle of wine. We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely home and we will certainly be going back.
