“Not impressed”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017
people found this review helpful

We booked this pretty cottage through HomeAway,co.uk a reputable company, to have our summer holiday in July. An initial deposit was paid with the balance paid in June, directly to the owner. This was confirmed by them and a further confirmation received in July from HomeAway themselves. On 22nd July we arrived at the cottage to find it was double booked. We spoke with the owner who stated she was expecting us to be in the cottage and didn't know who else was in the cottage. Upon speaking to the occupants of the cottage they stated they booked the holiday directly through the owner.....clearly someone was mistaken!
We were advised to go to a nearby restaurant whilst the owner phoned a friend to arrange alternative accommodation. We received a call to visit a property which due to its presence on a hill was unsuitable, as one of our family was recovering from a recent heart attack and had come on holiday to relax.....Not a great start.
On returning to the holiday house we were offered a second property, which whilst adequate was not what we had booked, We had to make our own beds up and found the property to be suffering from damp, as was shown by a fresh jar of sweetner going solid over the course of the week and the bed sheets having a damp feeling to them. Now this double booking could have been a one off situation, but beware you have been warned. In my opinion this is a grossly unprofessional way to run a business.

We are really sorry this happened due to a technical error when HomeAway changed their computer system. It is the one and only time it has happened in all our years as holiday home owners and a new system is in place to ensure it can't happen again. We did immediately upgrade you to a seaside holiday home worth £300 more per week and paid the additional £300 ourselves.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pixie Cottage, it’s in a beautiful location in a pretty little valley. Fantastic cottage, fitted our family of 5 perfectly, all freshly painted, lovely features especially the wood burner which was a delight to come home to, enjoyed BBQ’s in the pretty / sunny garden and kitchen brand new which was GREAT. Location incredible inbetween St. Ives and Newquay. Best beaches: Gwithian Coast, NT Godrevy, Lelant, Crantock, Fistral at Newquay and Portreath. Best pubs Bassett Arms at Portreath, The Victory Inn at Porthtowan, The Miners Arms at Gwithian. Sightseeing: Padstow, St. Ives, St. Michaels Mount, Pendeen - WOW what a coastline! We enjoyed visiting your stained glass studio.
Thanks to Mike and Kathleen for help when needed.
