Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely house with such amazing views. What a view to wake up to in a morning!
Was a shame that alot of the eateries were closed - even the Fish & Chip shop! Had to travel further afield for a nice lunch or breakfast. Such a shame with Marazion in walking distance.
Would love to come back with all the family.

This is our 5th visit to the Captains House ( 1st for our youngest member). We love the work to the house - even more comfortable.
We were lucky with good spring weather, actually did very little except a daily walk to Eisa's Castle and first visit to the gardens, which were excellent. Staff made it very special for my 3 year old, making her a princess for the day. Good lunches at Rick Stein's and Godolphin. Excellent dinner at Bens kitchen. Already planning our 6th visit.

We arrived earlier than planned and met the housekeeper. She showed us around the property, explaining how to operate the aga, home cinema TC etc... She is an excellent ambassador for your company!

An out-of-this world Christmas stay in one of our favourite places. Sometimes I feel it’s even more magical in winter.

The highlight of our week was a Christmas lights tour taking the coastal road from Marazion to Mousehole and to Angarrack, where we were able to admire the fantastic lights arranged to show the 12 days of Christmas.

Just what was needed, a fabulous view, the relaxing sound of the sea, beautiful skies – and did I mention the view. House was so welcoming and I think the first ever that I haven’t felt I needed to clean on arrival.

Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful home to spend a week. We have had a truly relaxing time. The weather has been amazing and we have enjoyed trips to St Ives (including the Tate) and Amelie’s at Porthleven amongst others! Fab hamper and sweets!

A very special place for a very special occasion, our parents’ 70th wedding anniversary and 90th birthday! The house as everyone says is in the perfect location and suited our needs perfectly! The drive from here through St Ives and up over to Zennor is a marvellous road with all the wild flowers at this time of year. We loved the retro Rock Pool Café at Mousehole. Everything you need in Marazion including the excellent ‘Avalon Gallery’ opposite the terrific Godolphin Hotel. The walks by Godrevy lighthouse (NT) are stunning and Seals came within 15’ of us! The Mount is of a very high standard, great to be able to get the boat back to (practically) the doorstep!

A 3rd Fabulous Easter at The Captain’s House with four generations now enjoying the trip. House still perfect, enjoyed Prussia Cove etc. New addition to restaurants was Rich Stein at Porthleven – well worth a visit. Ben’s Kitchen, still a favourite and the terrace at Godolphin a sun trap.

Wow! What an amazing special piece of paradise. We have had a fantastic week in this our very special part of Cornwall. This house is a home from home; the little touches (coffee machine, candles, toiletries) make such a difference. We enjoyed endless coffees sat staring at the tides.
