Great size, perfect location :)

  • 5 of 5

Suhaili is a great size for a family, with plenty of room for our 3 children to explore and a stash of toys, games and DVDs to be entertained (when it rained :( ) & has all the mod cons. The garage was a 'nice to have' for storing our roof box. Perfect base for sight seeing. Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to be in Falmouth centre within a 5 minute drive. Lots to see in Falmouth and the Red Arrow display was fantastic. Recommended! :)

Wonderful homebase to see Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at Helene's home in Cornwall. There were 7 of us (3 adults and 4 kids). Every night I took the kids for a walk (run) through the beautiful cemetery across the street. We also went down to one of the two nearby beaches. Swanpool beach is a beautiful little cove and our kids loved going there after dinner.

Helene and her local property rep Denise were very helpful and responsive. The first night we were at the property Denise came right out without delay when I called with a minor issue that needed resolving.

If we vacation in Cornwall again we would definitely return to Helene's property.

Good spacious house with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

Pros:The house is well positioned for both beach and town access, it has 4 large bedrooms, good size bathroom and a nice outdoor area and is very comfortable, the communication with Helene was exceptional prior to our arrival with all details outlined to make our stay memorable.

Cons: Very difficult to find driveway, could i suggest a sign on the driveway wall pointing to Suhaili. Also the quilts we had were a bit too heavy for the time of year and some sort of non slip mat would be an advantage in the shower.

All in all though we had a great week and i would highly recommend anyone considering a trip to the Falmouth area to put this property at the top of their list.

Private, great location

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 adults, 4 kids) spent five nights in Falmouth and this house was perfect for our needs. Helene and her local property manager were great and super responsive when we needed help the first night we were there. Check-in and check-out were both easy and straightforward.

Every night I took the kids for a walk (run) through the huge, old cemetery across the street. We also walked to Swanpool beach one evening. We would absolutely stay here again the next time we visit Cornwall. We spent most of our time traveling around Cornwall and my only regret is we didn't block out a day to explore Falmouth or spend more time walking along the coast.

Good property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My family (4 adults and 3 kids) spent two weeks at the property this summer and had a great time. It's a great base in Falmouth, which is a lovely town, being only 15 mins walk into town and 10 mins to the nearest of two local beaches. The property was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend to others.

Great place but it needs a bit of TLC

  • 3 of 5

The house is in a great place the lay out of the hose is good it is just very tired needs up dating the gutter at the back of the house were the main bedrooms are is full to overflowing with weeds and when it rained through the night little sleep was had because of the noise of the rain water over flowing the gutter like a waterfall some of the windows did not shut properly . There is a very nice garden but needed a bit of maintenance the back enclosed courtyard had not been cleaned for a long time there is a washing machine in the garage great but no were to put a washing line to dry the washing having said all that we had a good holiday Falmouth is a great place the position of this house is good very quiet and the neighbours are very quiet on one side and very nice on the other side the house is good it could be great with a little TLC. We were in Falmouth for seven nights we went to seven different restaurants we did not have one bad meal all week they were all very good.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and I am sorry that you did not find the place exactly as you had wished. Two of your comments have already been addressed. The gutter and the patio have been cleaned. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to come to Falmouth prior to your stay. We do try to listen to comments such as yours and we aim to maintain and improve the house for our guests. Helene Wood
