"Thanks for your email re our holiday at Dune Drifter. I can confirm that everything about the holiday was perfect (including the weather!!).
The housekeeper, Jo did a fantastic job in accommodating our arrival time and had the apartment ready.
The apartment was fantastic and equipped to a very high standard and also cleanliness was to a very high standard.
The welcome pack was a lovely touch and very well received.
Finally your office kindly agreed to print off our boarding passes for our return flight home and I would like to again thank you for being so helpful.
The purpose of our holiday was to return to Carbis Bay/St Ives (not having been there since the 1980’s!!) and everything we remembered about the area met up to our expectations. This was to have been a ‘one-off’ return but after enjoying our stay so much at Dune Drifter we are already talking about hoping to return next year."
