"Broken Promises"

We stayed in Water's Edge in Sept 2013. Nice location, nice view, liked Falmouth, liked the living room and kitchen, BUT!!!The main bedroom absolutely stank of could see the evidenc… More

It is strange that you have taken over a year to review your stay. It is also odd that you claim it smelled of damp and then say you wanted to return.

You made your initial threat to write a bad review in September 2013. I said I would investigate your claims. I stayed at the property for a week after your visit and found no evidence of a damp smell. I had two experts visit the property who confirmed that there was no problem with damp. There was some discoloration at the edge of a cream carpet. This was not caused by damp, and did not smell, but was historic staining where it had not been hoovered properly in the past – I have since replaced all the carpets in the property. No other guests and no other reviews, in 5 years, have reported a damp smell. If it “absolutely stank” as you suggest, they surely would have done.

The property has three double bedrooms. You could have used one of the other two bedrooms if it was affecting your wife, as you claim.

I conveyed to you that I had not found any problems at the property. You have continued to threaten me with a bad review and demand a free holiday. It is important to me that everyone enjoys their holiday at Waters Edge and the reports in our Guest Book, other published reviews and the number of repeat bookings suggest that they do. Last year, I provided a free week for a couple where one person fell ill during their stay and previously for another family where there had been some noisy works at a neighbouring property. However, I refuse to be bullied by the threat of a bad review about a non-existent problem.

"This property has it all!"

We felt fooled when entering the house because this house was much nicer Than in the Photos. No one mentioned that there was a huge bathtub that fitted our three children, or that there was a fishing … More

"Beautiful house and location!"

This is a lovely holiday let-home from home really with everything and more needed for a relaxing holiday.
The house is spotlessly clean and comfortable and the views are truly spectacular.Sitting in the lovely spinning chairs by the window watching the boats come and go is just so relaxing.
The house is a good 15 min brisk walk into the centre of Falmouth and was just a bit too far for my elderly parents but ok for the slightly fitter!
The garden at the property is large and well tended-perfect for an evening game of boules(supplied) and a glass of wine and if you are lucky watching one of the beautiful sunsets.
The 3 bedrooms are all well decorated - the only negative being that the low bed in the 3rd bedroom is not that comfy and we didnt sleep as well as we hoped.
On the whole though we were delighted with the house and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.
My parents aged 84 and 80 just loved it and seeing them relaxed and enjoying themselves was a pleasure.

"Excellent property with Great Views"

This property is excellent, all you need and more. There is all the kitchen equipment you need and plenty to keep the kids busy with a PS3, Wii and computer. The views over the marina are excellent. Just a short walk into town where there are numerous pubs and shops, The local Marina bar and restaurant is very welcoming and friendly. Will definately stay there again.

"Beautiful Location!!"

(One week family holiday for Dad, Mum and 4 children age 5 to 14.) Waters Edge is in a beautiful location in Falmouth and as the name suggests, it is indeed, RIGHT on the water's edge looking over Falmouth Marina. The property has a large, well-kept, sloping garden and right at the bottom a little gate leads to a private jetty which the children thought was fantastic and kept going down to see where the tide was and what creatures could be discovered etc. The property was very well equipped and the beds were comfortable and we all slept very well. The lounge area has a HUGE bay window where you can sit and enjoy the view of the Marina (and the view really is as good as it looks in the photographs)! The lounge furniture is very comfortable and there is everything you would need technology wise. The kitchen and dining area are lovely too with a real marine feeling throughout. We walked into the centre of Falmouth on a few evenings and enjoyed the beaches at Swanpool and Maenporth where we hired a Kayak which the children really enjoyed! We went on a 2 hour boat trip along the coast line which was beautiful & visited Pendennis Castle which was very interesting with more breathtaking views of Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waters Edge and would love to return in the future.

"Fantastic views, great location nice bungalow - Were able to Kayak from the garden"

We rented Waters Edge for two weeks in the hope that our teenage family would find some time in their busy lives to come and stay with us.
This was a great location for that, with ample parking for the three cars that were there for some of the time.
Swanpool, Maenporth and the castles at Pendennis and St Mawes were popular. There was a guns event at Pendennis which was worth the extra entrance charge.
We brought Kayaks with us and had some nice trips around Falmouth harbour launching from the end of the garden - you get two hours each side of high tide. We also took them to Swanpool where you can launch at any time and planned to take them to Maenporth where it would also have been possible - but never got around to that.
We loved that we could walk into Falmouth most nights to use the varied restaurants there. The "Thai Orchid" and "Samphire" were particular favourites, but there were none that were really bad.
When left on our own, we used the bungalow as a base for walking some significant parts of the South West Coast Path, parking near to Helston Sainsbury's and using the busses to access various villages along the way.
We cannot fault Waters Edge for anything, the garden was excellent for barbeques and sunsets when the weather let us but the swivel seats in the lounge allowed nice views while reading a book and drinking wine - even when the weather didn't allow us outside.

"Lovely property nice and quiet"

The bungalow was ideal for my elderly parents apart from only having one bathroom with no seperate shower, and the one bedroom had a very low bed.
The lounge furniture was also very uncomfortable and we were not able to relax at the end of the day.
The position of the bungalow was excellent and overall we had a pleasant stay.
I would recommend for families and young couples because there was a lot of hi tech equipment such as a computer and printer and a playstation.

I'm pleased to hear that overall you had a pleasant stay at Waters Edge. It's disappointing that you found the lounge furniture uncomfortable as we have had many comments from other guests saying how much they have enjoyed sitting in the lounge, particularly in the swivel chairs, looking out over the river.
