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 guests have said about The Boat House below:

Returned from our stay at The Boat House I must tell you that this property completely exceeded our high expectations! The location is perfect, at the edge of a village but still secluded. All we could hear was the sea in front of us. The Boat House is furnished with love and at a high standard, but nevertheless sensible and practical. We had great storage in the kitchen and the electric equipment was of the highest quality. Watching films in the living room was like being in the cinema because of the high-quality speakers and professionally coated walls. This is more than luxury self-catering.

The Boat House at Downderry is totally superb in every way. Very well appointed and immaculate in every respect with great attention to detail, uninterrupted sea views and a private location. Easy approach and parking with lovely grounds and access to the private beach. Charming, unspoilt villages to discover nearby, and Looe and Fowey are within easy reach . A great find and one to where we will return, as it really is unique.

What a splendid property. The grounds and surrounding area were an adventure playground for our small children. The morning sunrise over the sea experienced from the comfort of the master bedroom was worth the drive from London alone. The fireplace was a wonderful feature and the Cornish tea left for us was a real unexpected treat. The owners were wonderful hosts, the perfect combination of giving you your own space but on hand if needed. They made our trip to the beach perfect by surfacing a kid’s beach bag filled with beach essentials. What a great break with the family we will be back.

We loved the property it was very clean, quaint and peaceful. We loved that we got the property all to ourselves as we really needed to switch off from work and the world. The sea views were delicious and the fireplace and living room so relaxing. Hiking the paths was glorious and visiting the local villages was delightful. The people were so friendly and we even got lucky one day on our walk buying fresh fish from a mobile fishmonger. The garden was beautiful and the owners were so sweet. We wanted to stay longer but it was booked but we will go back, that´s for sure. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Absolutely fantastic stay! The Boat House was exactly as it appeared online, just gorgeous, in the perfect location and beautifully furnished. The owners were lovely and whilst only next door should we have needed them, they weren´t at all intrusive. We had an absolutely heavenly week of relaxation in a beautiful unique home in a fabulous location - thanks so much!

The photos online do not do this place justice. So much more than we expected. Peace, tranquility, noise of the sea and spectacular views. Everything was thought of with care. Just to sit and view the garden and sea gave such peace and happiness.

Stunning location and the views are breathtaking. During our stay there England was hit with some very stormy weather, it was very atmospheric watching the sea and changing landscape from the comfort of the house!

The Boat House was a great place to stay for a week in a wonderful setting. The owners were very helpful but not intrusive. We had a fantastic week and could not have wished for more.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the owners for making our stay last weekend so amazing. We had a great time, The Boat House is beautiful and you made us feel really at home, you have such a gorgeous property and an amazing setting.

This was our fourth Unique Home Stay in Cornwall and by far the best!! Our 2 year old loved the space and hiding in every nook and cranny. We enjoyed the fire, the sound system and of course the view! The nearby Monkey Sanctuary was terrific, the local restaurants were excellent with ´The View´ being outstanding. Saving the best to last ... the private cove just a short walk from the garden gate, we had the beach all to ourselves!! Thanks to the owners for a wonderful stay.

Really lovely property, super quiet location right by the sea with superb sea views from the floor to ceiling windows. Awesome sound system, we watched a film each evening as we enjoyed the sound and music so much.

A stunning property with excellent owners who were extremely welcoming and helpful.  A superb property that delivered in all areas of comfort and luxury. The level of service from start to finish was very good and look forward to using Unique Home Stays again in the future.

The owners were lovely. Very welcoming and helpful for our check in. The Boat House setting is spectacular. It has a remote and relaxing location. You feel like you are the only people on the coast and that is perfect!

The owners were very friendly and helpful, we were slightly worried about staying in a property so close to the owners home but they were very unobtrusive and when we needed some help it was good to have them so close by
