We absolutely adored the cottage - we've stayed in Sennen many times and this was the best we've had - really did look forward to getting back to Proper Job after a day out. The location is great and the cottage really well equipped - 2 bathrooms were both fab and would be a real bonus if four people were staying.

I think that the fact we have rebooked Proper Job as many times as we have is indicative of our pleasure at spending our holiday time there.

Thanks as ever to you guys and to Proper Job - it's hard to beat. Our third stay here. Excellent in all respects.

Impressive service from start to finish this is the first holiday we have booked completely online and we were a little apprehensive at not actually speaking to anyone but we were soon reassured with the confirmation throughout. The courtesy call the following day of our arrival was much appreciated although not needed as we were very happy with our accommodation and will certainly be booking again. Thank you it was just what we needed a very good holiday!

It's wonderful to see a company that works to perfection. No hassle, no problems. The property was very clean and every you needed was supplied and our son was impressed with the Wii game console. It made our holiday extra special in Sennen Cove.

Lesley Redmayne

This was our second booking with Cornish Gems and the service was exactly the same as our first booking which proves the excellent standard of service is maintained. The property was again immaculate. I cannot fault Cornish Gems office staff, the cleaning staff, or the properties. I would not hesitate to recommend Cornish Gems to family, friends or colleagues. 10/10 :0)

Richard Hollinrake

From the outset the service received from Cornish Gems was 1st class, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Having booked with other Cornish property letting agencies there is no comparison Cornish Gems are ahead of the game. I would not hesitate to book again and have done so. What also stood out was the recommendations made in the visitors book were actioned and present in the property which shows real commitment to customer service.

Richard Hollinrake

The team at Cornish Gems are friendly, helpful and very personable. I really appreciate all the little things they did that leave a pleasant and lasting impression: the calls to check all was ok, the welcome pack, the little gifts, the quality of the property. It's lovely to receive such a good service in an age where most companies are madly trying to cut back. I have already recommended Cornish Gems to several friends. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Caroline Davies
