5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

My husband and I stayed for three nights at the delightful Bay House. Carla and John were perfect hosts, not at all intrusive but always there to assist and nothing was too much bother for them. The breakfasts were delicious. We stayed in the Atlantic Room, the view from the bay window was superb, straight from a holiday brochure. Every detail was thought of for your comfort, including the fridge on the landing, for our gin and tonics, which were the perfect accompaniment for sitting in the bay window, watching the world go by. We would definitely put it on our list for a place to return to. Thank you Carla and John

We had two wonderful and pleasant nights at Bay House, Lizard. Carla and John are gentle hosts und offer impeccable B&B in a magnificant accomodation. The straight view from our room to the cliffs was fantastic. No restrictions to me mentioned. Thank you, Carla and John.

The warm welcome and generous hospitality offered by Carla Caslin and her husband, John, was the beginning of one the most enjoyable experiences we have had in a month long holiday from Australia. Our room with its lovely and large en-suite bathroom offered every conceivable comfort, not to mention luxury, together with a truly beautiful outlook. We appreciated being able to return to the room at any time, an arrangement not always available in B & B's in our experience. John's gourmet breakfast was of the kind that sustained one through the day and his friendliness and Carla's made a great deal of difference to our enjoyment. We cannot recommend this property and its owners too highly.

Room Tip: The Atlantic room is probably the best available, being the biggest and best equipped.

Bay House, the views of the Atlantic and being on the most southern tip of the UK provide a perfect 'away from it' all setting. The enthusiasm and kindness from the experienced hosts Carla and John give a home from home experience. The views from the Atlantic Room of the Lizard Lighthouse are seconded by the beautiful interior design and art work in the house and the great attention to detail to make even a short stay perfect.

When we arrived we were provided with tea and scones, jam and cream on the terrace, a real sun trap even in October. Carla kindly phoned and booked local restaurants for us. John shared his local knowledge as we enjoyed his excellent breakfast. We were provided with a map for a walk to the local village of Cragwith as we meandered along the South West Coastal path which passes the gate of Bay House garden.
Nothing disappointed and everything was better than we had hoped for, the reality is even better than the photographs.

Room Tip: The view from the Atlantic Room is superb. The lighthouse light is excluded by very efficient black...

The first second we arrived at the Bay House, John and Carla let us feel welcome and at home in their beautiful place. The Atlantic Room is wonderful with a simply spectacular view over Housel Bay, the famous Lighthouse on the right side. John's breakfast was excellent and their enthusiasm concerning local tips, in-room DVD's etc. are unbeatable. A very fun and adorable couple! We are already planning for the next stay....

Absolutely nothing disappointed me during my recent stay at Bay House. Alighting from the bus after a long journey, I was surprised, but thrilled, to hear my name called by a lady with a lovely, smiling face. Carla had driven to the bus stop to collect me. Bay House is beautiful, and my room (Ocean Breeze) exquisite. The view was all that had been advertised (quite a rare event in my experience) - the bay immediately below and The Lizard Lighthouse to the right. The tea and scone upon arrival were very much appreciated. One of the nicest touches was when I returned to my room mid-evening to find the lamps and television had been switched on. It felt like I had my mother back, looking after me. John's breakfasts are superb. I cannot recommend the place highly enough. And ladies, if you are travelling alone, you will feel completely safe here.

Room Tip: All three rooms are of the same high standard.

This was the second time that we stayed with Carla & Dave and like the first time we had a wonderful stay over Easter. The rooms and house are lovely and you will note the attention to detail, which makes this place truly wonderful. We also loved the great cream tea in the lovely garden, with great views over the sea and to the lighthouse. You also have direct access to the coastal path.

Carla & Dave are very helpful with restaurant recommendations and activities to do in the area. It will certainly not have been our last stay.
