Owner Testimonials:

Working with Cornish Retreats is a valuable necessity in maintaining a valuable income on multiple properties in the competitive Cornish holiday market. With increasing properties again coming available in the area a personal and professional touch goes a long way, and someone knowing everything about your property is vital to get the best from prospective clients. Briony at Cornish Retreats does this for us, bridging the gap between owner and client with useful and knowledgeable feedback.
The flexibility is a necessity as we enjoy friends and family visiting, but it is evident after years of trying that the kind of prices agencies are able to attract are far higher than owners, so it remains a highly profitable way of managing my new clients, while my regulars are happy to contact us directly and for us to make owner bookings, something which other agencies do not do without frustration or punishment.
Having worked with Cornish Retreats for over 3 seasons I am more than happy with the relationship and the profitability than ever and working with Briony means less worry in terms of sales and manageability. I can say her knowledge and expectations have regularly been spot on as she regularly exceeds expectations.  I would not hesitate to personally recommend Cornish Retreats as a value added resource to any property owner.
Mr. W, Multiple (Holiday lets owner)
As the owner of one of the properties included in the portfolio of Cornish Retreats, I would like to mention what a brilliant and efficient service I have received over the 6 years I have been with them.  When I first started to let out my converted barn, I was under the impression that managing bookings myself would be simple. How wrong I was!  After poor bookings, double bookings, angst, and just not knowing the market and how to manage customers, I soon realized that I needed a professional person to take over this burden.
Briony, of Cornish Retreats literally took the weight off my shoulders.
She advises me, manages the customers and the bookings flawlessly, making sure the whole process runs smoothly.  I don’t have to do a thing….except welcome the guests with a glass of wine or a cold beer after their long journey!  An excellent service from a most professional organization.
Mrs. L, Noongallas Long time holiday let owner
I have used Cornish Retreats for my holiday cottage for seven years now and this is testimony to how happy I am with the service they have given me. Everything has always been very straight forward and communication with them over the years has been efficient and supportive. They have accommodated my requirements for my business and they offer a service that is personalized. Overall I have received a very professional and flexible service to support my requirements over this time that I am very pleased with. They have a lot of experience in the industry and understand how to move with the changing times which is imperative for creating and maintaining business.
Mrs. E, Long time holiday let owner
Writing as an inexperienced Holiday Let owner I would like to commend the professional way that Cornish Retreats has managed my let. Briony has guided me through the pitfalls (and there have been quite a few) with great aplomb. She has endeavored to manage my let with a personal touch in handling both the promotional and monetary side of the let and also the after let follow up. I can recommend Cornish Retreats to anyone with great confidence.
Mr. BW, New holiday let owner
Cornish Retreats has been managing my holiday letting for the past nine years and I have always found them to be extremely professional in both their dealings with me and my clients. The monthly payments have been prompt and any query speedily dealt with. Over the years my guests have often commented on how helpful they had been when the bookings were made. I would recommend Cornish Retreats without hesitation.
