Another fine stay. Have recommended, will continue to recommend and hope to see you again next year, Thanks
A modern house that was 4 star and was comfortable.
We were pleased with the location and the proximity to the station was really good as we used the train to get to/from St Ives. Parking was good. Really good for the dogs as we were able to walk to Porthkidney beach
The house had lots of books and plenty of cutlery crockery etc and the welcome gift was a nice touch - everyone felt very comfortable in the house and it was just the right size for the extended family. Also everyone we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful which is why we would be happy to recommend you to others.
The accommodation was perfect, ideally located and beautifully presented.
I was very impressed with the sheer helpfulness of the team, who efficiently and with kindness, enabled us to move into The Eider House on a Monday morning, after spending the weekend in a most unsatisfactory house which we had booked with a different company. I will definitely use Cornish Gems again. Thank you.
The house was great for an extended family holiday - well equipped and furnished. Service from Cornish Gems was excellent when we needed help sorting out the internet. Great property, brilliant position.
The house was lovely, very clean and everything we needed for our holiday.
Very good house. Ideally located, clean and comfortable.
We had a great time in The Eider House over New Year. The location, house, facilities and advice given by Cornish Gems was excellent. We are already planning our summer break and next New Years Eve.
