“Fantastic house in a great location”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at Key West for one week in May 2014. The house is lovely. It is very well maintained; clean, modern and bright. The washing machine was very useful as was the large kitchen. The owners very kindly left us a bottle of wine which was much appreciated after a long day of travel. The house is conveniently located about 10 minutes walk from Charlestown Harbour (and about 20 minutes walk to St Austell train and bus station). It is easy to get around the area using public transport or walking if you prefer not to drive. Charlestown is a very nice fishing village with a few pubs and restaurants. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed some long walks along the coastal path. Stunning views, secluded beaches and some great exercise hiking up and down the hills! Visits to the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Mevagissy are highly recommended.

“Lovely Christmas break”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at the Key west during Christmas and enjoyed it very much. Owners even put a Christmas tree and decorations for us.
The location of the cottage is very convenient - you can easily get to all the major attractions in a very short period of time. The supermarket is 3 minutes away and the ocean is in the walking distance. The house itself is located in the quiet neighborhood, almost like a closed community.
What made a big difference for us - was reliable internet service. Due to personal reason we really had to have it and were very pleased that the house came with free WiFi.
Overall, we had a very comfortable stay (because that house has everything you need and it also nice and warm even in the gusty winds!) and a wonderful Christmas!

“Great value for money”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We had a lovely stay at Key West recently. The house is modern and immaculately clean. We really appreciated the wine that was there on our arrival, plus there were teabags (including peppermint), coffee and milk. We had lots of fun on the Wii - there are several games and accessories including Wii Fit. The children's books and toys in the cupboard in the second bedroom were a nice surprise. There are plenty of places to visit nearby. We went to the Eden Project, Newquay Zoo and Christmas shopping in Truro. Asda and Tesco are both very close by (which is handy if you forget to take towels like we did). Also the highchair and travel cot were useful for us.

A note for future visitors: if you would like the beds to be made for you it does cost £20, or alternatively you can take your own bedding with you.

“Great Service, Fab Location, Welcoming House”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A good experience all round. Easy to book and access, and flexibilty on dates is a reality!
Key West is a warm and comfortable home from home, ideal for a relaxing holiday exploring St Austell Bay and surrounding area. There is always something of interest going on in Charlestown too

“Great house with everything we needed for a lovely holiday.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The owners were very helpful with the information they sent - enough to be helpful but not too much. Directions and instructions were very clear, and lots of great information about supermarkets, etc. There were lots of recommendations for beaches and places to eat.

The house is a great location for exploring the surrounding areas. It has everything you could need while on holiday and is a lovely cosy place. The neighbours we met were very friendly too.

We will definitely return one day.

“Immaculate Property in Ideal Location”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My husband and I stayed at Key West for four days last month and found the house to be exactly as advertised. The booking process directly with the owners was fast and efficient, and they were very accommodating to our needs.

The house is modern and spotlessly clean and offers all the mod-cons one would need to have a very comfortable stay. Although we we weren't travelling with children, we noted that there were plenty of games and even a Nintendo to keep younger folk happy.

Situated just a short walk from Charlestown harbour and not far from shopping and restaurants, this is the perfect holiday home. A+ all the way!

Thanks, Chris and Lucy! :)
