Approachable, efficient and experienced, we bring 12 years of unparalleled beach knowhow to every one of our self-catering retreats. From the housekeepers to the maintenance staff, every member of our Cornwall holiday home management team has been hand-picked and trained by us for a service you can trust.

With our 24/7 emergency contact number, we’re always only a phone call away. Not only do we make sure your holiday home gleams, we also carry out a thorough double-check before guests arrive – guaranteeing absolute peace of mind. Our team creates tailor-made house books for each retreat, brimming with insider knowledge.


To achieve that ‘first-ever guest’ feel when
a visitor walks through the door, we:

  • Never use agencies or outsource our
    changeovers and cleaning.
  • Recruit, employ and train every one of our
    housekeeping staff, allowing us to uphold our
    rigorous standards.
  • Assign your place a dedicated housekeeping team
    and property supervisor, who’ll get to know every
    nook of your holiday let.
  • Provide mid-stay cleans for longer breaks and
    deep-cleans over the winter months.
  • Always ask our property supervisors to carry
    out a thorough post-changeover, pre-arrival
    check of your place.
  • So you can relax in the knowledge that the key will
    be in the safe, the doors locked, the heating set, the
    towels fluffy and the welcome pack waiting.


Guest safety is at the heart of our service. We’ll carry out regular checks on smoke alarms, co2 alarms and fire extinguishers – ensuring everything is in excellent working order. No guests for a week? No problem. We’ll conduct weekly checks of your retreat when it’s vacant (often required by your insurer) – guaranteeing your place is spotless, safe and secure all year round.

We’ll make sure you’re up to date with current legislation for holiday home, including:

• Fire safety and risk assessments.

• Annual PAT testing.

• EICR certificates every five years.

• Gas safety certificates where relevant.
