This house was a total dream: it is stunning and immaculate with superb attention to detail and lovely chinaware and accessories, but so child friendly and homely that we were able to relax and feel at home here even travelling with 5 kids under 4yrs old.

It is ideally situated on a quiet one-way street between the two beaches of Kingsand and Cawsand (kids hurling up and down on balance bikes were universally greeted with smiles) and the local shop and play area are also well within walking distance.

I cannot emphasise enough how pleased we were to have chosen Blue Monkey and would heartily and highly recommend it to anyone considering holidaying here.

“A lovely house in a lovely village right by the sea”

The Blue Monkey is a splendid house in great condition and spotlessly clean. It has loads of character inside and in the lovely court yard at the side and rear. Its meters away from the sea and the local pubs (one next door but one) serve really tasty food.

“Perfect for two families with small children, everything we needed was there..”

We had a great week in Cawsand staying at the blue monkey, everything we needed for both adults and children had been thought of and were their waiting for us including lots of dvd's. We found the house to be really comfortable to live in and the top (second) floor was great for children with two good master bedrooms on the first floor both with en-suites and roll top baths, one of which also has a gorgeous rain drop shower.

If you don't feel like cooking then we can also recommend the pub which is next door but one, we were even treated to some sea shanty singing but booking is recommended.

“A relaxing stay in a beautiful house and village”

Our stay at Bluemonkey was as wonderful as the reviews suggested it would be! The house is beautifully decorated and ideally situated in the most quaint little village in Cornwall. We loved the escape from busy life - everything you need is within walking distance in the village; cute restaurants, beaches and most importantly, ice cream!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cornwall in a beautiful, specious property in a lovely location. If you are planning a trip to Cornwall, I recommend the Blue Monkey as a perfect place to stay with a group of friends. It is really peaceful but there is lots to do in the village and surrounding area. The beach is lovely and our dog loved running bout there.

I arrived at Blue monkey after a tiring journey and was immediately cheered with a cream tea and bottle of bubbly! The house is immaculate - beautifully decorated, luxuriously comfortable and unbelievably clean.

There is everything you need and the location is perfect. The house is 1 street back from the sea and the village is car free so its peaceful and unspoilt. There's a pub within 1 minute's walking distance that serves very good food.

There's a ferry service across to Plymouth if you want a bit more action and you can often see dolphins swimming from the ferry. The locals are very friendly and will point you in the right direction for whatever you want to do be it shopping, hang gliding or just relaxing on the beach.
