This is the 3rd property we have stayed in in Cornwall, and we loved it. Great location, great décor, and a lovely home from home. It is exactly as advertised, and the owners clearly love the property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Sea Captain's House!

The location of this property is fantastic being only a 10 minute walk to all the shops and local facilities on the waterfront. The beach is also close by and has a gorgeous café there. Inside the property, we particular enjoyed the living area which was so cosy and had really wonderful, comfy sofas and a snuggle chair. Combined with an excellent kitchen, we self catered every night and loved our holiday evenings in front of the TV (with a small baby, we didn't fancy eating out!).

Not only are all the essentials very good at this property (comfy beds, good shower) but I think it was the extras that led me to really enjoy my stay. The soft blankets in the living area, the sun loungers in the garden (which had sunshine all day) and the deep bath tub! And whilst the location is central, it felt so quiet and peaceful making for a very restful nights sleep (and with a baby that's saying something!).

I'd recommend this property to my own family and friends and would choose to stay again when visiting Cornwall.

Well, what can we say? We're thrilled that you had such an amazing time at this lovely property. It really does tick a lot of boxes and, importantly, it sounds like you were able to recharge those batteries! We would love to welcome you back in the future, and perhaps when your little one is a little older you can indulge in the many wonderful eateries that we're so lucky to have in Falmouth.
