    • “The house was brilliant we had 8 people in the house for 2 nights and there was loads of room. 8 adults did not feel on top of each other. The facilities were amazing plenty of kitchen bits and pieces. It was the best holiday let we have stayed in ever. The position of the property is amazing with a beach 10 strides from the front door. 4 pubs in the villages!!”

    Mrs Musk, Southampton, February 2019

    • “Only problem concerned heating / hot water. Heating is on a time clock so unable to override in the very cold weather we had. This probably wouldn't have been a problem if we hadn't had two very small babies with us. Fortunately, we had brought plenty of logs with us for the fire. Also, there didn't seem to be much hot water most of the time - certainly not enough for baths. Otherwise everything just perfect as in previous stays.”

    Mr Murkin, TAUNTON, February 2019

    • “The outside of the cottage does not reflect the fabulous accommodation when you walk through the door! As soon as we arrived we felt welcomed and relaxed. It was the perfect venue for a family of 9 coming together over the Christmas period. Could not fault the cleanliness and comfort. Considering there were 9 people, the house always felt calm and spacious. It’s location was superb, we had sea views as well the beach only 10 metres from the front door. We were within minutes from 4 pubs, and would thoroughly recommend visits to The Rising Sun “Riser”, Halfway House and Devonport. There were plenty of walks to enjoy, especially through the Mount Edgecombe Estate, which takes you to the foot ferry across to Plymouth. Cawsand and Kingsand are magical villages, and the bonus of staying at Nivana added to that magic. I would definitely recommend, whilst at the same time keep it our secret!”

    Mrs Rawles, Taunton, December 2018

    • “Not impressed with booking fee. Will be looking at alternative providers who do not make this additional charge.”

    Mr Owen, Gloucester, December 2018

    • “Excellent accommodation in an ideal location. The cleanliness and preparation of the property could not be faulted. Strongly recommend Nirvana for both families looking for beach-side holiday or smaller parties looking for a comfortable base to explore this part of Cornwall sightseeing and walking. Good leisure and eating out facilities on the door step in a village that never gets too crowded.”

    Mr Spencer, COVENTRY, September 2018

    • “House is lovely , deccriptions very accurate! Sofa in kitchen needs replacing & mattress in front middle bedroom . Plates are very used . We didn’t have any recycle bags left for us , so we couldn’t recycle . But the house is in a stunning position , felt very relaxed & a beautiful part of the country”

    Mrs Lindfield, September 2018

    • “Hi we have now booked with you for 3 years and love staying at Nirvana. We have booked the house again next year. However we felt this year that the standard of cleanliness had definitely dropped. The fridge in the outside area (where the washing machine and dryer are kept) was very dirty indeed. It probably had not been cleaned for months. We took every shelf out and section from the doors and thoroughly washed the parts on hot soapy water. We also cleaned the entire inside of the fridge with cleaning materials. It was not in a useable state at all. We also had to clean the wooden table in the kitchen which had sticky patches on it and stains. The dishwasher had dishes in it and it had to be cleaned, needing dishwasher rinse aid and salt. We bought both of these. We did not let this spoil our stay as we love the area and the house, hence we have booked again. However we felt this feedback was important, especially the fridge which was disgusting. We did not leave any such comments in the house book. On a separate note we left a chrome fire stick in the TV in the front lounge worth approx. £50. Please can you check if the cleaners found this or if it is still in the TV? A book was delivered to the house after we left for Rhodri Richards - has this been handed to you also? Many thanks for your help with this. Paula Richards Liz Pernas”

    Mrs Pernas, Llantwit Major, August 2018

    • “Lovely cottage and lovely location. Thanks for a great time and beautiful sunny weather!”

    Mr Millar, TWICKENHAM, June 2018

    • “What an amazing place. Out the front door and onto the beach. Could not have wished for a more beautiful home to enjoy kingsand from. Thank you.”

    Mrs Pounds, Flitwick, June 2018

    • “My Family had the most amazing time staying at Nirvana, the house was fantastic, the village was so lovely and the stay was just the best time we could have wished for. The perfect location to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Having everything we needed in the house helped us enjoy some real quality time together and we would love to return at some point in the near future.”

    Mr Barber, Leicester, March 2018

    • “This is our second stay at Nirvana & we had a wonderful time. The house is in a superb location and is the perfect place fir a large mixed age group. We are likely to return and over many, many years have found Helpful Holidats to be faultless in their service. However, on this particular holiday their usual high standard was lacking. We felt Nirvana China was rather worn, some was chipped, rugs were frayed & tatty. The downstairs area of the house smelt very ‘doggy’ and there was a huge pile of dog mess next to the dining table on the patio. Not nice when you don’t own dogs and have a young child in your party. There was also a dog toy left lying around. The back outside area had clearly not been checked on prior to our arrival. There was clear recycling information in the house folder but no recycling bags which rendered the process very hard. In order to recycle I had to pay several visits during the course of the week to the recycling bank in Cawsand Car Park which was a bit of a trek away since the higher link Road is closed due to major construction work. A final observation is that the holiday was centred round my 60th birthday party and we had planned and taken provisions with us fir a family BBQ, having really enjoyed that experience at Nirvana last year. However, when we came to Cook. - there was no BBQ! So we had to adapt and cook inside which was an enormous shame & disappointment. Too late for us to do anything else. I look forward to hearing back from Helpful Holidays about all these comments.”
