Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous clients have said about The Edge below:

The perfect hideaway - a wonderful balance of being able to be totally lazy and relax whilst feeling very alive with all the surrounds of The Edge. It was a real breath of fresh air and the perfect escape for us before our baby is due in a couple of months! Finished to a superb standard, The Edge exceeded our already high expectations. Thank you.

I was brought to this surprise location by my boyfriend for my birthday weekend. Having spent many great family holidays in Cornwall I instantly knew we would have a good time. This little place really is in a league of its own. The views are breathtaking- which no photo could do justice- they really do consume and inspire you! The moonlight casting silvery shadows on the horizon and the choppy waves, the fire burning and a glass of red in hand made the perfect setting for a proposal! It really was perfect and a complete surprise; we came as girlfriend and boyfriend, and left as fiancées!

We have been to Cornwall many a times, but have never been to a place with such astonishing views! The Edge was a truly wonderful experience for myself and my husband, a perfect place to start our married life together! The property delivers on all counts and has allowed us the privilege of privacy and luxury to ensure our honeymoon was the best holiday ever! We will be back and thank you again for ensuring our first week of married life was so memorable.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay at The Edge. We enjoyed every moment. We have spent three days in heaven with views to die for. We are definitely coming back!

The Edge is outstanding; there is absolutely nothing that counts against it. We´ve had the most lovely few days on our mini moon after a stressful couple of months. This place has made my husband realise the importance of holidays in our married life, woohoo!

What a wonderful little place. We arrived equipped with wellies and windproof jackets but instead found ourselves soaking up the sun on the deck. After several years of marriage and two lovely little children, we wanted to treat ourselves with a couple of romantic days in Cornwall. This was our first visit and staying at The Edge we got everything we could have possibility asked for and more. We can´t recommend it enough.

My boyfriend brought me here as a surprise for my birthday. We have both absolutely loved every minute of relaxing on the deck watching the tide roll in and out and soaking up the sunshine! It has been a magical weekend all around and I am so happy to say that I´m leaving here as his fiance!

Wow! That was our first thought when we arrived at The Edge. We have had a beautifully relaxing time here connecting with the beauty of Cornwall. What an amazing way to celebrate our 30th anniversary.

Thank you so much for a beautiful stay, it was the perfect location for our mini-moon and we are reluctant to leave! We will look back with fond memories when we are back in the city and hope to see the view again soon.

Amazing place! It is very special, we enjoyed every minute.


What can we say? Wonderful experience perched on The Edge watching all the different weathers roll in, bright hot sunshine to raging storms in one weekend. Absolutely amazing. Just what was needed.

Newly engaged after a swift romance and much sadness in the past, here we escaped from the world and found the much needed solace to build on the foundation of our love. Having found each other again later in life (66 and 58) we leave The Edge uplifted by the peace and tranquility, the fabulous views, the sounds and smells of the sea and the winds and this beautiful small space that has enriched our lives. Without doubt we will return.

Thank you for the opportunity of staying in such a wonderful place. The view is outstanding and we absolutely love The Edge! We hope to come back soon and next time do some more windsurfing!

What a beautiful place! So relaxing, calm and just a fantastic break. Watching the sea and mist in the morning was fantastic. The local shop owners and cafe staff were lovely and we have just had an amazing time. We will definitely be back! We are getting married in May and would have loved to come for a few days after, but sadly it is booked - not surprised, it´s lovely! Thank you so much for a brilliant week away.

Our time spent at The Edge has been amazing. This place is beautiful ´whatever the weather´! We experienced the crazy winds and stormy seas during our stay, but we were safe and toasty inside The Edge (at one point during the night we thought we would blow off the cliff but our home from home was secure and safe!) We were able to sit and watch the awesome power of nature safely inside. We had an amazing, peaceful time!

We have just had the most wonderful weekend break ever here at The Edge. What a perfect place to spend time alone with each other away from the rush of life. To come into a world of peace and serenity, to listen only to the sounds of nature, to admire the beauty all around you and to watch the sun set over the Western horizon. Can´t wait to come back.

Amazing property!

We have re-christened The Edge ´Paradise´. Nothing could have been more perfect. Thank you!

Hot sunshine, breathtaking views and The Navy pottering around the bay - fantastic! Superb walking from the front door too. Great food at The View - definitely worth a visit and plenty of opportunities for a crab sarnie and a pint in the various pubs around. Thanks!

Had an absolutely wonderful stay and the weather was glorious!

I don´t know what is better: lying in bed listening to the sea and watching the stars; or basking in the sun on a sofa with the sea all around. It´s all pretty good, and we´ve had a fantastic 4 days. Cooked clams and mussels from the beach, great lunch at The View, breathtaking views and delicious seafood!

We have had an amazing stay here at ´The Edge´ and the views are wonderful. The first two days of our break we didn´t move! Just sunbathed, chilled out, had BBQs, and Karl sat there with the binoculars for hours and hours. We have never stayed anywhere like it, it is truly unique!

We have had a really wonderful stay here- wall to wall sunshine all week and beautiful views. "The Edge" is a fantastic place, you are so lucky to own it! We spent our time walking and relaxing, visiting the "Cliff Top Cafe" (nice cream teas!) and hope to return one day.

What a place to stand and stare, To watch this beauty in all its awe, To breathe the tranquil salty air, To watch this world without a care.

Just had a perfect honeymoon. The Edge was fantastic, really well designed. We loved the area and the wonderful views.

We have had a fantastic stay in your idyllic home. Great start to wedded life, hope to return for many anniversaries to come!

Thank you for letting us stay in your magical home- you really have thought of everything!

Thanks so much for letting us stay at this beautiful place. We couldn´t find one thing that wasn´t in its perfect place. Its a special place and I can´t wait to come back in the summer.

I came across details of The Edge whilst searching for a cottage/chalet with a beautiful view. The Edge matched my requirements perfectly. The aim of my current (solo) visit was to relax and also work on my little start-up. Upon seeing the chalet and landscape I immediately wished I had brought a friend to enjoy the place with me! I shall certainly be returning with a friend in tow.

We came here fore Simon´s 40th birthday and have had a wonderful time. This place is like no other, so unique and tranquil, a welcome break for busy working parents that´s for sure! We attempted walk "A" and managed to get completely lost but had such a laugh. We had a lovely meal at the Finnygook Inn. We found the Cliff Top cafe and you were right the bacon, brie and honey bagel was delicious! The outdoor shower was very bracing but a challenge I couldn´t turn down! We have had real quality time together and it has been blissful!

We´ve had a blissfully relaxing stay at "The Edge" We were blessed with relatively fair weather. The ever changing light on this beautiful part of the Cornish coast is fascinating. We had everything we needed, so many thanks.

What an amazing place! The day we arrived was apparently the coldest day in Cornwall for 25 years! This did not spoil our stay one bit, and by Thursday it was warm enough to have a BBQ! We highly recommend the Devonport Inn for a cosy meal by the fire. We would love to return one day.

We had the most fantastic stay in The Edge! Ten out of ten for unspoiled scenery, dramatic weather and walking opportunities. We feel very privileged for having had the chance to stay in this beautiful place.

What can we say that hasn´t been said before; "The Edge" is beautiful- even in the really cold weather that we´ve had over the last week. We have enjoyed our stay so much, we wanted to get away from it all for a week and relax and we have certainly done that! The walks around the area and the beach have been great and we would like to give a special mention to the "View" restaurant for its wonderful food and cream teas.

After a snowy, wet, long winter, we have been fortunate enough to have a beautiful dry sunny week. The Chalet is perfect.. It´s equipped with everything you need! The views are absolutely amazing!! We have had a fantastic week, thank you so much.

We had a fantastic time we love your company

It´s very clear that you rigorously check the standards of your properties and The Edge certainly merited its luxury status.

Nothing more to say than: Just Perfect!

We had an amazing stay at The Edge! Lots of being lazy and staring out at the sea and hibernating. Also one massive walk (from your guides which we would highly recommend) and we braved the outdoor shower. Its been the perfect hide away for a week and we don´t want to go back to the real world.

Wow! What a stunning place you have made. We had an amazing weekend appreciating the amazing design of the cliff top haven you have created. We made the most of it despite it being January. We wanted to be on the terrace as much as possible and enjoyed al fresco breakfast, champagne and even tested the outdoor shower! The area is also stunning and we would thoroughly recommend coastal walk 5 (check out the books!) starting from Mount Edgecombe Country Park. We need an excuse to come back here, but we have a pretty good one as The Edge is now the location of our Engagement! Hopefully we will be back for our honeymoon!

We swapped Courchevel for Cornwall and loved every minute. From watching the fireworks at midnight on New Year´s Eve to waking up on the 1st (my birthday!) and watched the crazy first day swimmers (we later joined them but only for a paddle) on the beautiful sunny day. What a beautiful home from home!

What an amazing spot! We´ve never had views like it. The Edge is an amazing place and kitted out brilliantly. We didn´t mind the bad weather one bit and particularly enjoyed the fantastic sunsets even when we thought the sun was completely hidden! Would love to try it out in the summer when the terrace could be extended living space. Maybe next time!

Thank you for what has been the most idyllic birthday week in your charming cliff top retreat. I think we were rather lucky as the sun has not stopped shining here in the Bay. The constant rumbling of the waves below lulling us to sleep and waking us each morning, alongside the wonderful views make London feel very far away indeed. We managed to tear ourselves away to Rams Head and a pub lunch in Kingsand- a wonderful trip!

You really have thought of everything, thank you. The Edge really is spectacular, both property and location. Yesterday was Darrens birthday and we were blessed with the company of Dolphins for more than two hours WOW! We are very sad to be leaving today, we would love to have a return visit.

The standard of equipment was high with lots of nice touches. The view is absolutely stunning; the most unique feature and the best of all coastal retreats that we´ve stayed in.

The attention to detail from the owners was fantastic they really had thought of everything leaving us bread and milk was a very personal touch we would be more than happy to return. thank you.

The property itself was perfect, well designed throughout with great attention to detail. its locations means that you have the most incredibly stunning views, whatever the weather.

We had an amazing stay at The Edge - a really lovely unique property. Katherine and Adam (owners) were very helpful and welcoming.

Congratulations of designing such a beautiful retreat in a stunning location. The views get better and better, because it´s always changing there´s so much to discover. We have enjoyed our short stay at ´The Edge´, it´s hard to leave such a lovely place when you have made it so comfortable.

We´ve had an amazing few days at ´The Edge;. Congratulations on creating such an amazing space that makes the most of its stunning location. I don´t think we´ve ever stayed anywhere where we have been so happy just to sit and relax. We´ve spent the last few days discussing when we can come back, which I am sure we will do sometime very soon.

We´ve totally fallen in love with The Edge. This certainly is a very special place. I think we´ve finally found the secret to total relaxation! Although our time has flown we´ll take treasured memories- which hopefully the millions of photographs will do justice. We hope to return!

Wow, the place is absolutely gorgeous, fantastic, unique, etc etc. We wanted a beautiful ´beach hut´ style with fantastic views of the sea and remote- and that´s what this is. I have´t felt this relaxed in ages, and it is a wrench to leave today. I will miss the sound of the sea and the exhilaration of the outdoor shower. You can be proud of what you have done here, and I doubt you will receive one bad comment... Is it free next weekend...??

Dear Katherine and Adam, Thank you for creating such a magical place! We´ve had such an amazing time here. we didn´t want to leave!!! I love you attention top detail and the thought and effort you both much have put into creating The Edge. It´s such a soothing, relaxing and calming home. Regardless of the weather, we enjoyed every moment here. We how to come back, over to any other places you may have.

Stunning location- in the sunshine and wind and rain! A total break from the rat race- just what the doctor ordered (lovely hamper too!)

We are coming to the end of our stay at ´The Edge´ and have had a wonderful time. The weather has been lovely and we have enjoyed a walk on the beach this morning, followed by a tasty lunch at the Finneygook Inn at Crafthole. We can also recommend taking the Cremyll ferry over to the Royal William Yard, Plymouth where we had lunch at the River Cottage Canteen (yes, we have spent all weekend eating!). But most of all we have savored every minute spent at ´The Edge´ and watching the sunset over the sea has been beautiful. Congratulations to Katherine and Adam on such a beautiful place... You have though of everything and it is perfect!

We had a brilliant time, it was very relaxing. Tremendous scenery and walks on the beach. I´m sure we will return!

Thank you for lending us this beautiful place for the weekend. The sea has always held a special place in our hearts and it has been wonderful whatever time of day and whatever the weather has thrown at us! Hopefully we will be back in the not too distant future.

This is a remarkable place in a spectacular setting- we´re loved and watched the ever changing weather and light and we are wonderfully rested, thank you!

What a stunning hideaway! Beautifully designed to make the most of the simply stunning views and equipped with every eventuality in mind. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have been treated to extremes of weather which make the location even more stunning! Awesome!

We arrived in the dark, Down a slippery path, We woke in the light, To a beautiful sight. We paddled in the sea, And ate pasties for our tea. The rain didn´t get us down, Because inner peace we had found. Many thanks, Wendy and Peter.

The setting was stunning and the views unforgettable!We had a wonderful time staying at ´The Edge´ and the setting was incredible. We would highly this property to friends, thank you. The quality of the produce in the hamper was superb, thank you.

It was a lovely cottage, also cosy and well appointed. Area was just as we had hoped and expected it to be, quiet and not over-run by too many people and traffic!

Brilliant property, brilliant views and very well equipped to the highest standards, truly and unforgettable holiday, hope to stay with yourselves again either at this property or at one of your others!

The Edge is a very unique place and waking up to see and hear the sea out of the bedroom. The whole place feels so luxurious and we´ve had a very relaxing time there. The owners ensured that our stay was comfortable. " 

We could spend an unforgettable week in your chalet and enjoyed our time here very much. The view is really amazing and the chalet is equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, unfortunately the time has flown.. We enjoyed our time here when the sun was shining, but also with rain and storm it´s been a comfortable environment . We hope we can re-visit one day!

We have had an amazing time at The Edge. The views have been fantastic and we shall miss waking up to the sound of the sea. We´ve seen all kinds of weather but when the sun is shining it´s the best place to be. It has been an unforgettable break and we shall be returning to the edge soon.

We had a fantastic stay at The Edge and enjoyed every day very much! We loved the views and watching the beach life, birds and the most amazing butterflies around the beautiful garden. The cottage is indeed, very well equipped, and makes staying- and cooking- here a real pleasure. We hope we can make it back one day, we´ll miss The Edge very much!

Great place fantastic location well finished - top quality little place

A truly fabulous position. The interior has been furnished exceptionally well. It adds up to a fantastic holiday.

Congratulations on designing such a beautiful retreat in a stunning location. The views get better and better because its always changing- there´s so much to discover. We have enjoyed our short stay at "The Edge", it´s hard to leave such a lovely place which you have made so comfortable.

We had a wonderful time in you little gem. We enjoyed the incredible view day by day and also the partly horrible weather! Thanks for sharing this incredible lovely place with us. We definitely fell in love with Cornwall and the Edge!

From the swirling sea mists in the morning to the fantastic sunny day, with views from the deck over the sea and the soundtrack of the waves, from soft ripples to crashing thunder. This has been a fantastic weekend, with everything we miss of England when we are home back in Saudi Arabia. The little house is small but well teamed with everything we could want- and top quality. Many thanks for letting us use your holiday home- I have no idea how you have the willpower not to spend every spare moment here!

We´ve had an amazing few days at ´The Edge´. Congratulations on creating such an amazing space that makes the most of its stunning location. I don´t think we´ve ever stayed anywhere where we have been so happy just to sit and relax. We´ve spent the last few days discussing when we can come back, which I am sure we will do sometime very soon!

The location of The Edge was unbeatable! A hidden gem and the secret to total relaxation.
