“Hidden Gem”

My wife and I spent two lovely weeks in June at La Mouette and would undoubtedly stay there again when visiting the area. Furnished to a high standard with all necessities for a trouble free holiday. The short back approach to the village on level terrain was a blessing enabling us to pop back to the cottage throughout the day. Extremely clean throughout with very comfortable beds and a very quiet location. Couldn't have asked for better lodgings.
The only caution is the narrow approach up the hill and into the parking space which is adequately shown in their listing. This said, we highly recommend this outstanding cottage!

“Tucked away gem”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Tucked away little gem. Don't be fooled by the pictures it's much bigger than it looks. Washing machine, dish washer, toaster, microwave, fridge freezer everything you could need. 5 min walk to the harbour and there is a flat walk to save walking up the hill.

Fabulous place to stay. Quiet and secluded and yet very close to bars, pubs, restaurants, harbour and the sea.

Will definantly be back.

Thank you Sue.

“Luxurious”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed here for a wedding. There was everything you could need and the thoughtful gesture of milk tea and coffee and biscuits waiting for us.
We lacked for nothing. The entrance by car is a little narrow but we managed it every time.
We couldn't get on the Internet but I suspect that was a BT fault and we will be taking that up with BT.
Our only little niggle is that as everything was so luxurious it would have been nice to have had a king size bed. There was certainly room for it in the lovely bedroom.
Will be staying again for sure.

“What a find!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Absolutely lovely house, spacious, well appointed and spotless. We stayed for three nights and wished we had booked for longer. Surprisingly for a holiday rental, it was really tastefully decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped and had we been inclined, could easily have prepared any type of meal.

The garden is really well kept and the area was really very peaceful. Little touches like really nice bedding, towels and even tea towels made a nice change and we were delighted to find a dishwasher. The entry way to the parking is a little tight, but not a big issue.

A stones throw from the centre of the village and harbour and a perfect base for exploring further. We ate well in the village and could recommend the Sharksfin on the harbour, not cheap but good food. The Harbour tavern did a lovely fish of the day, but lacked atmosphere. The Maharaj indian was very nice, and the highlight of our stay was the sea shanty sing along in the Ship - which did appear to be the most popular watering hole.

“Beautiful cottage in a lovely village”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

La Mouette cottage was excellent and meticulously clean throughout, top quality and very comfortable. Nice to have your own free car parking space.
To find tea, coffee and fresh milk ready for us was a delight after a long journey. My Wife and I couldn't fault the cottage or it's location in Mevagissey, and we really enjoyed our stay.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We arrived after a long journey from Sheffield, a little apprehensive, as often photos/reviews don't always tell the truth.
Not this time, there is everything you need/want here, and its only a short stroll to the harbour, and one's own parking place.
From the minute we walked in the door, we fell in love with the place, spacious lounge, my wife wanted to take the kitchen home, and an outdoor patio/Garden as well. Upstairs, lovely bathroom, 2 spacious bedrooms, large comfy double bed, with choice of quilts, plenty of storage space.
In fact this is the best holiday rental, we have ever stayed in, and is truly a credit to the owners, as it is immaculate.
We had a great week, only got wet once, and dined on the patio twice.
