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 Firefly below:

What a beautiful retreat! We were able to relax just sat out on the porch in all weathers and let time just pass us by while enjoying this home. The music on the iPad, the well-appointed kitchen, the hot tub and fire were all fantastic. A great stay in a location that was within easy reach of everything we wanted. The Unique Home Stays team could not have been more helpful and on hand within minutes! A great level of service which we very much appreciated.

We have had a great week at Firefly. This place is very special, and like no other we have stayed in! We loved the hot tub, sitting out on the decking, the fabulous shower and very comfy bed. Thank you for the gorgeous welcome pack and for giving us the opportunity to stay in such a great place. We’re sad to be leaving, but hope to return! Thank you.

The perfect place for us to recover from our wonderful but mad wedding weekend with our two miniature Dachshunds. They both thoroughly enjoyed running along the beaches every day! Thank you so much for creating this amazing hideaway, we hope to be back soon!

We had a lovely relaxing four nights at Firefly after an amazing (but hectic) wedding! It was a perfect retreat away from our busy lives in London and we loved every minute. Especially the outdoor cooking, cosy warm fires, exploring the local area, and the hut tub! We just wish we could stay another four days. Thank you so much.

This is the second time we have stayed at Firefly and it´s still a dream, every millimetre! Many thanks for all of your assistance, we will be back!

We had an amazing stay at Firefly, it is such a magical place. Not only did we really enjoy our time there but it was wonderful meeting the owner. Thank you to everyone who made our time at Firefly so wonderful, we can´t wait to start planning our next Unique Home Stay!

Thank you for this slice of peace and quiet and a beautiful space, in which the small details perfectly combine with the overall design; one day I hope to build something as amazing as Firefly! Such a perfect place to retreat to.

We loved Cornwall and our stay at Firefly. Now that we´ve returned home we are constantly reminiscing about our stay, it really did exceeded our expectations.

We had a brilliant time here, such a special place to celebrate my 30th birthday. Absolutely loved it and could not wait to head back each evening after exploring Cornwall. From the hamper, ambient music on arrival, hot tub and cosy fire, this property is perfect for a city escape in every way. Thank you.

Thank you so much for creating this beautiful place for us to escape the helter skelter of life. I was so caught up in the beauty and charm that I proposed to my girlfriend. She must have been caught up too, because she said YES! This amazing, unique property will forever hold a very special place in our hearts.

The two of us have had the loveliest time ever. Firefly is fabulous, thank you for making it so special. We will be returning soon I hope. We have never been so relaxed. The fire is wonderful, the bath incredible and waking up to those picturesque views has been dreamy. Thank you once again.

Thank you for sharing your little bit of paradise with us - a perfect way to celebrate our first year wedding anniversary. Rufus adored his bed (and thanks for giving us an idea for his Christmas present!). We even managed to cook outside on one of the nights. Thanks again.

We had the most amazing weekend. The place is absolutely gorgeous, it will be a minimoon we won´t forget. Thank you for the champagne. I love the card added, a very personal touch. Also enjoyed the scones and bacon, they went down a treat. We hope to be returning in the future. Thanks again.

We loved the interior styling and quirky touches - the freesias in the little recycled bottles on the wall deserve a special mention. The property is wonderfully cosy, blending rustic style with certain modern luxuries, and we loved it. The sofa was gorgeous - better than any we have found in a rental property - and a perfect contrast to its wooden surroundings!This was our first getaway with Unique Home Stays and we are now looking forward to planning the next one!

Thank you for creating a cosy, wonderful place to stay. What dreams our made of.

Such a lovely property exactly the style we prefer. The weather was amazing. We cant wait to our next stay with you.

We have had a lovely stay. Firefly is absolutely beautiful. We do not want to leave.

What a beautiful place! Could not have asked for a nicer place to escape the business of London. Already dreaming of my next Unique Home stays break.

Thank you for having us at Firefly for the last few days, we have absolutely loved it! The hamper, card and dogs bed/treats were a beautiful personal touch and very much appreciated. The dogs (and us) have really enjoyed warming up by the fire after a long day out exploring the surrounding beaches. The place is idyllic and we hope to be back one day.

This was by far one of the best experiences that I have ever had. Makes your brain think about the simplistic splendour, and a wish for those lottery numbers. It was my 50th, and it couldn´t have been in a better place, definitely recommended. What a perfect trip!

We absolutely loved everything about Firefly, we have already told all of our friends about it. We will definitely be back!

We loved the welcome hamper and the interiors of the property, they were creative and exceptionally inspiring whilst also being welcoming and homely. Unique Home Stays is now our favourite booking agent for great cottages!

We loved the cosiness of Firefly as we experienced many days of rain, but were happy to stay inside with the open fire. We enjoyed making wholesome dinners in the open-plan kitchen and our little dog also joined in the fun.

Thank you so much for a very special stay at Firefly! It is a magical place and the perfect escape from city life. You have really thought of everything here and created a cosy home from home. The fresh Cornish air and surrounding nature was wonderful. We hope to visit again soon.

Firefly was a wonderful property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Firefly, what a stunning property and full of so many interesting items. Teddy, our Jackahuahua, loved running into the waves at Watergate Bay and also running alongside our tandem on the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow as he could roam freely off the lead (and have half my pasty at the other end!). We spent the evenings relaxing on the deck and even cooked supper on the outside fire which was a fun challenge. Thank you so much for such a special stay.

Thank you for letting us stay at your truly special cottage. We genuinely felt as if we had stumbled across a woodcutters cabin, the interiors were authentic, rustic and certainly very unique! The attention to detail didn´t go unnoticed, and while the ´back to nature´ feel is evident in the use of materials through the property, the key comfort elements - from mattresses to sofas and linen were high quality and luxurious. We enjoyed a restful and romantic stay, and we´ll definitely head back for a winter break, as having stayed over a particularly balmy weekend the only negative was that we weren´t able to make the most of the real fire!

Firefly is like no other self-catering holiday I have ever experienced, it´s completely unique. I loved the rustic interiors and pretty flower gardens, I only wish I could have stayed all summer.

Wow, what an inspiring break! Thank you so much for letting me enjoy your unique home, it was the perfect place for me to get some relaxing alone time far removed from my chaotic city life. I loved reading by the pond, painting seascapes on the Cornish cliffs and gathering some inspiration for my blog visiting the local hidden gem attractions. The interiors have certainly encouraged me to get creative with up-cycling myself. Next year I´ll be bringing the dogs along for their summer holiday! Thank you.
