“A truly fantastic house with amazing views”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

From the joining instructions to the 'what to do' booklet, the attention to detail was so impressive.

The house itself isn't that imposing on the outside, but wow, the inside and the views more than make up.

The house is huge with large living/kitchen area and big bedrooms. It's all beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished. It has a warm, homely yet luxurious feel. And it was spotlessly clean and well maintained.

To say it's well appointed would be an understatement. It has everything you need - great bathrooms, board games, games room, great sofas, fantastic kitchen, good wifi and TV's everywhere! And everything was great quality - no skimping or cutting corners.

The bed was amazing. Certainly one of the best beds I have ever slept in, and probably one of the biggest too!

Its position overlooking the bay (and directly behind the Tresanton Hotel), gives truly wonderful views and is quote mesmering. I happily sat for hours just watching the boats bobbing along, and the weather changing further out to see.

Breakfast on the terrace was just a delight.

St Mawes itself is a charming place with some great food and drink venues and lots to see and do within a short drive/boat trip.

I can't wait to go back or try one of their other houses. Just hope the sun shines again for a whole week!

“Magical, amazing, stunning and totally gorgeous!”

We had a fabulous week here with our whole family aged from 4 to 74 and everyone absolutely loved it! I want to write a review as it is such a gorgeous place and Amanda (the owner) has made it very special. The interiors are beautiful and the highest spec I've ever found in a rental house. The beds have to have a special mention as they are unbelievably comfortable - 3 x 6ft beds (also makes a change as usually there is only one big bed in a house). Outside the views are stunning and the kids loved the gardens with secret paths and the trampoline. Amanda organised a chef to come one evening and it was really delicious, she organised flowers for my mother and she checked them with the housekeeper prior to our arrival - when she found they weren't as good as she expected she organised another lovely bouquet to replace it before I even had a chance to see it! Everything exceeded our expectations. I am hesitant to write such a glowing report as I'd like to keep it a secret so we can return but that wouldn't be fair. If you are considering staying here - go for it - you won't regret it. We will be back as we are regulars to St Mawes and we can't wait to return to Stargazers or maybe Dreamcatchers next time.

“Beautiful views in a fantastic coastal retreat”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We whizzed down to Stargazers for a short break with friends in February.

The location is stunning, with sweeping views across the bay and beautiful grounds that seems to amble on forever.

Inside, Stargazers is equipped for your every whim, with TVs everywhere, electric cars for the kids and most importantly, a lovely open plan kitchen and long dining table to spend your time cooking, eating and drinking with friends and family.

Perfect.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We love Cornwall, we love the sea, the beach, unrivalled views, beautiful gardens and most of all Stargazers which has it all and so much more. This is a real escape from everyday life- for us a relaxing break but perfect for the whole family - a house full of delights. As the welcome in the hall reads " Welcome to Paradise " . A perfect description.

“Go for a rest, or go to tour, but whatever your itinerary, stay at Stargazers”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I could easily stayed at Stargazers and done what it was named for - gazed all night at the stars and all day at the spectacular view over the lush gardens in the rear yard to the lighthouse and headland across the bay. However, I did NOT stay put because the owner bent over backward arranging for me to see four of the lovely gardens for which Cornwall is so famous, and a friend joined me for the weekend to hike around the headland and explore the area in general. I was so busy touring that I left the little village of St. Mawes till last and was sorry I had, because the folks here were so delightful.

The house was meticulously cared for and so well-equipped that my girlfriend and I laughingly dubbed it "the gadget house." Aside from two flat-screen huge TV's in the living and second sitting room, there are TV's in the kitchen and bedrooms. And cooks will love the kitchen because the owners have thought of everything. On the other hand, if you don't want to cook, the owner will arrange for gourmet meals to be brought in (I did, and was blown away by the quality of the vegetarian fare that was prepared for me). The beds (and bedrooms) are huge and the bathrooms are fit for a queen; I was especially impressed by the heated floors. The master bedroom even has a small private kitchen with doors leading to the rear patio, which would be perfect for a blended family.

My only complaint was that it rained a good portion of the time I was there, but if the owners could have controlled the weather, I'm sure they would have handled that as well. Seriously, I can't say enough good about this wonderful holiday rental home, or about the area in general, and I can hardly wait to come back,
