“Home From Home”
Reviewed 11 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Mermaid House was beyond expectation, lovely holiday home with everything you need, all 3 generations of our family enjoyed our stay especially Denise when you also arranged for the sun to shine.
My grandson was fascinated by the children's book shelves and their contents.
Thank you Denise for all the information you gave us and making everything just right for our stay we would all love to make it our holiday choice again

Thank you so much for choosing Mermaid and for looking after her during your stay. You were brilliant - and it was nice to speak to you. It is such a relief when guests stay who appreciate Mermaid and treat her with care and respect, which you all did. It's also great when there are 3 generations staying - Mermaid is a family home and I am glad you enjoyed it as we do with our grandchildren! Take care and enjoy the rest of the summer. Kind regards Denise

“Perfect week”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Mermaid House was the perfect base for our walking holiday in Cornwall. The apartment has all you could ever need for a first class stay. Very well decorated and equipped throughout and spotlessly clean. The beds were the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on......I did think of trying to get mine in the back of the car .. Seriously , if you want a quality rental in St Ives which has its own private parking and is situated away from the hustle and bustle of the town, then this is the one for you. Thank you to Denise for her generosity and assistance throughout.

“Mermaid House”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Mermaid House was perfect accommodation for us (two couples), for a week stay in St Ives. The owner Denise was very nice, and gave us good advise on the area, walks, etc, and even offered us an extra day either side of our booking at no additional cost !
If we were in the area anytime in the future we would not hesitate in stopping at Mermaid House again.
