Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at NO16 for 7 nights form 16th August 14.

Fantastic communication with Sharon. On arrival the house was beautiful. There was 10 of us in our group as we were having a family get together for the week. There was welcome treats, cream tea with clotted cream in the dining room with red wine and shortbread biscuits, in the kitchen treat of white wine.

There was everything you could need in the kitchen for self catering from a mixer to bake cakes to serving dishes more than ample enough crockery and cutlery.

We loved the snug mugs and will be buying some ourselves. The kitchen was immaculately clean with flowers on the table. The cooker is a very good size with lots of pans and cooking trays etc.

we loved all the lighting in the house which felt very cosy with dimmer lights and different types of fairy lights. Everything has been thought of even down to the music system in the dining room, books to read around the house and a piano. Every room has a television which we all enjoyed having as then being able to play the radio in our rooms.

The lounge is large with enough room for us all to sit. Magazines etc in there too.

Bedrooms are all to a high standard, all the doubles were a large size and the twin room smaller all very clean. All bathrooms are very clean and had lovely soft white fluffy towels. There are 2 en suite bathrooms to the double rooms at the back of the house and the double room with the twin room shares a good size bathroom. The downstairs bathroom is large and is the one that has a bath.

The garden is beautiful and decking leads to it from the dining room if a person struggles with mobility you can still get to the garden by going out the front door and round the side of the house.

Parking is a little tight we had 3 cars and felt if there was a fourth it would have been awkward but there is parking on the road also.

Overall we all enjoyed staying at the house age range from 12 to 64 years old, plus 1 dog.

Would like to thank Sharon for going the extra mile. We will be back!

We had meals at Prezzo in Falmouth town centre and in Warehouse lovely food and service in here.

Swanpool beach is very clean and the crazy golf and kayaking was good.

Out of Falmouth towards Hayle Coast to Coast go karting reasonable and a lot of fun and horse riding.

NO16 is a beautiful. well equipped, clean, comfortable, home from home for a holiday. With amenities in walking distance to town and a short drive to the Supermarkets

Wonderful property and owner

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the house itself. It had been recently refurbished and was beautifully decorated and very comfortable creating a real home from home feel. We were 8 adults and 3 children staying for a perfect heat wave week in Falmouth and found the property to be perfectly situated between the beaches and the harbour etc. The beautiful gardens with tropical planting, BBQ and glasshouse room were a perfect way to relax in the heat in the days and evenings. We especially enjoyed the amount of space with large lounge, dining and kitchen spaces it made 11 people in one house very manageable. Sharon (owner) was really helpful and attentive with advice or just checking in etc. We would definitely consider renting again after our experience this time.

Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Superb house - thoroughly enjoyed by all - party of 9 ranged from 21 - 85 years old. House is spotless and tastefully decorated. Plenty of room for everyone. Communication with Sharon was excellent. Perfect location to explore Falmouth and surrounding area. Excellent day at Helford on a hired motor boat and visiting the seal sanctuary at Gweeb. Won the pub quiz at 'The Front' at Falmouth. Lovely coastal walk to Maenport - awarded with a pint in 'The Cove'. Perfect holiday.

A must rent! Absolutely splendid holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous experience from start to finish. We will be back....I hope!

What we weren't prepared for was the warm and welcoming nature and how very comfortable we would be. The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated. It is situated brilliantly for accessing all the areas that tourists want to see which means you don't have to rely on public transport or taxis all the time.

We have previously stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world, particularly in the far east and middle east and this lovely property stands up to any of them. I cannot recommend this house highly enough.

We were a party of 10 people and none of us could find anything wrong with the house. We all agreed this is so far the best holiday we have ever been on and we would all love to return to Falmouth very soon.

Great family house

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we arrived ,it felt like home. We were a family wanting to spend Christmas together. 11 people ,4 generations ages from 8 to 93 years. There was plenty of room for us all to spend time together,or do our own thing. The property was immaculate and very cosy and warm . Sharon was great she made sure all was well and checked that we had settled in OK. The house was in a great position for beaches and the town . I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends

Spacious family home in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for New year and although the weather could have been better we had a very enjoyable stay. There were two families, my mom and 3 dogs staying at the property and because of the weather we spent more time inside than we intended, having said this there was more than enough space for everyone.

Every room is well equipped with everything you need and many extras.The bedrooms are very comfortable and bathrooms very modern. The property is not really missing anything at all.

Falmouth has some lovely shops, restaurants and pubs. The Quayside Inn was our favourite. We made use of the local Taxi companies because of the rain but it was in easy walking distance otherwise. £3 one way for a normal Taxi, but they do have a mini bus for more passengers.

Sharon was very quick to respond to any queries that we had and was extremely helpful throughout.

I would definitely rent this property again if we were to return to Falmouth

Everything we could have wanted and more.

  • 5 of 5

8 friends, 2 children and a dog stayed at Falmouth Townhouse for a week and had a great stay. Weather wasnt great but the house had everything we needed for the rainy and sunny days. A great garden perfect for a sunny evenings BBQ, and the 'outhouse' was great for when it got chilly.

All the rooms were lovely in the house, it didnt matter which room you stayed in, they were all clean, very comfortable and all very well decorated.

The location of the house is perfect, we hardly used the cars apart for long days out. There are 2 great beaches within 10 minutes walking distance and the town is also a 10/15 minute walk (slightly longer coming back up the hill!)

Sharon provided all the information we needed on where to go, where to walk the dog, where to eat and useful hints and tips.

We would definitely recommend the property to anyone, any time of the year.
