About Property Manager
For the past few years, I have worked in the NHS at a Pharmacy Technician, and for the past 10 years have wanted to move to Cornwall. My dream was to set up my own business to be able to welcome people to this beautiful part of the country. I am married with 3 children and own 5 cats,a dog and several chickens.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2017
Why Property Manager chose Looe
The house was built at the beginning of the 20th century and is perfectly placed between Looe and Polperro. It has wonderful views of the rural landscape and has a large garden to enjoy. There is plenty of space for parking and is only a short drive into Looe. If you don't want to drive, the bus stop is by the property.
What makes this House unique
We provide a washing machine and tumble dryer so not need to take dirty washing home with you. The garden has swings and a slide to entertain the children and there is a games room for the children with games consoles and traditional board games, so the adults can have peaceful relaxation if needed. There is a hot tub available to hire for the duration of your holiday, but this is an extra cost of £150. Change over day is Saturday in High Season and a 7 day stay. We are flexible outside this time, and have a minimum of 3 days stay.

Very comfortable, spacious cottage
A lovely comfortable cottage which easily caters for up to 10 people. The garden is a delight and secure for both children and dogs. Plenty of things such as, games, toys and video games to entertain young and old. We had a lovely holiday and were made very welcome on our arrival.
Thank you for you lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you all staying here and I now know the name of our unusual tree. We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future x
Comfortable, spacious, well equiped holiday house
We were looking for a suitable holiday property for a family of 8 adults, 1 toddler and 2 infants to spend the week together and attend a family wedding. Waylands East fitted the bill perfectly. It is very spacious and well equipped (although maybe could do with a second shower). There is a large secure garden, perfect for children with plenty of lawn, swings and a slide. The hot tub is also a good size and a great addition to the property.
Lanette and Andy made us feel welcome and were very helpful in providing information on local beaches and eateries. The 'welcome pack' of groceries including a bottle of wine was a nice touch.
Thank you David for your review of Waylands East. We are so happy that you and your guests enjoyed your stay. We are planning on sorting the second shower this winter if all goes well. We hope you will come back and stay with us sometime in the future.

Not a glowing review for our stay
We had 10 in our party and stayed for the week. The location is lovely as is the property. I am sorry to say we had issues during our stay. We had no hot water for three days of our stay and no heating. We could not dry the clothes we washed, their was a dryer but do not like using one. I had to contact the owner to try and sort out the problems. Lannette, to be fair, did come round and give us logs for the fire and portable heaters. She called for a plumber and found the boiler was at fault but managed the get it going for the rest of our stay. After three wees of being back the owner did refund some of the money back in to our bank account.
Martin from Peterborough
Thank you for your review Martin.
It was very unfortunate that the boiler was at fault. We did deal with it as soon as we were made aware and as we are only next door, you could have knocked on the gate for an instant response. You will be pleased to know we have now got a new boiler fitted. HomeAway hold your damage deposit and refund it automatically after 2 weeks, and you received the full refund. We hope you enjoyed your welcome pack and our personal DVD's for you all to watch as we didn't have a Blue Ray player. We do provide a washing line and an airer, as well as a tumble dryer and I did help you by putting your washing on the line when the sun was out. Glad your bike ride went well when you got home and glad you enjoyed exploring the Looe area.
