Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

A holiday by the sea - fantastic stay !
First of all I wanted to say, if you are hesitating to book a break away in these stunning Villa's please stop and book your break ASAP !! I have followed the Facebook page for these Villa's for a long time and finally stopped hesitating and booked (fairly last minute for me!!) a week in No 66 for Easter. Yes there are a lot of steps to get to the property however the views are stunning and well worth the steps (classed it as holiday cardio!! lol). The beach and woodland walks were right on our doorstop which our dog and children adored. The flat is very clean and well maintained, in particular we loved the small touches e.g. dog blankets, bowls, crate, board games, binoculars. We followed the coast line to Looe from the Villa - be aware its hilly so avoid lots of layers as its hard work. Looe itself was a real delight with top quality bakeries, pubs and shops. Plus a little arcade which our kids enjoyed (and dog friendly!!). We also visited the Eden Project which was around 45 mins away (dog friendly), Polperro, Fowey via the car ferry (highlight for the kids!). Highly recommend the fish and chips takeaway / restaurant near the Villa called The Coddy Shack (they have website and on road from Looe town to Villa) - I personally thought they were the best I had tasted and so unbelievably fresh (so expect a little waiting time) The level of customer care from Karen in relation to response time, helpful information and general kindness far exceeded anywhere I have previously booked and I wouldn't hesitate to book to stay here again. I have already recommended to family and friends.

Sea View - What a view 🏖
What a fabulous week at Millendreath, a real trip down memory lane. Having spent several childhood holidays here back in the 80's, I was a little apprehensive as to what Millendreath was like 30 years on. Although much has changed, we had a fabulous week. The view from Sea View was just stunning, the terrace amazing, I can only imagine how wonderful it must be on a hot sunny day. To lay in bed at night and see the moon shimmering on the sea, just beautiful. So peaceful and quiet, no traffic, just listening to nature and the sea. Sea View was perfect for our needs, fully equipped with all you need for self catering. Our rescue lab just loved his holiday. We barely used the car, right on the beach, direct access to coastal path in both directions. Walked to Looe and onwards to Polperro, the other direction to Seaton and back along the beach. Mullendreath woods worth a walk too. We loved the beach bar, very dog friendly too. Highly recommend for a dog friendly, relaxing holiday. On a sunny day day those views contest any in the mediterranean. Also visited Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey, Fowey (although sadly it was pouring) perfect base for exploring. Loved the Copley Arms at Hessenford and the fish n chips at the top of the valley (Coddy Shack) were so good. I have no doubt we will be back, Karen was a wonderful host, full of information, easily contactable and even arranged for the cleaner to turn our villa around earlier as we had a great drive down and arrived much earlier than expected. Thanks Sea View, you didn't dissapoint, very much missing those views.

Fantastic in every way!
We've just stayed for a week and already booked to go back. The location for us was perfect. Quiet on site, lovely beach on the doorstep and easy access to local towns and attractions. The villa was clean and well equipped, the views to die for. The owners were friendly and very helpful. We had a lovely week, and my son wants to come back every year. Nothing to complain about at all!

Lovely break
We booked last minute to stay at sea view villa , we wanted somewhere to stay with the dog . The villa was beautiful well decorated and furnished with all the equipment you need including a dog crate .The villa is located in a quite peaceful valley with its own beach, beach bar and cafe , due to the time of year and it being out of season the cafe was not open , and the bar only opened Wednesday to Saturday , but that suited us fine. The villa it self had a magnificent sea view as it is located high up on the resort , quite a few steps to reach it and this would not be a problem for older people , but thankfully not for us . We had a absolutely fantastic break and the dog loved running and digging on the beach . I would certainly return . Karen the owner was very helpful and communicated with us very well

Thank you for your lovely review and hope you return some day. Re Cafe: We no longer advertise the cafe as it may not open again due to lack of businesses wishing to take it over. We will update the listing if it does reopen. 🤞🏼

Amazing Stay
Amazing place. We loved every second of it and cant wait to go back which is not like us but when you find a perfect place there no point looking elsewhere. The location is great. The Villa is perfect. We especially loved the beach and the large patio area especially at night where we spent hours stargazing after site seeing or relaxing at the beach. The steps are a little challenging but a small price to pay for the views during the day and night. Thank You for an amazing stay.

About the neighbourhood
MILLENDREATH is a small inlet with its own sandy, private beach, 1 mile from the main town of Looe to the West. There is a tranquil air to the place as there is no through traffic. There are coastal walks with breath-taking views in every direction; woodland walks starting from your door and picnic areas in scenic locations. Millendreath is so secluded you may have difficulty finding it on a map, yet it is so close to some of the best known attractions in the West Country. There is a jetty which provides an enclosed bathing area or fishing platform when the tide is in. There are numerous rock pools and crevices. When the tide is out you can walk along the beach-front, or take a 20 minute coastal path walk or 5 minute drive to Looe where there is ample parking. Being close to the A38 there is always somewhere to explore.LOOEThe picturesque fishing town of Looe is situated on the spectacular South Cornwall Coast in a largely unspoilt area of the South West. It has an unpretentious charm and an excellent range of facilities with traditional Inns and cosy pubs tucked away in the pretty narrow streets. Many 15th Century building remain. Restaurants, galleries, cafes, shops and convenience stores are found in this quaint fishing village. There is ample parking in Looe. Families love to fish for crabs from the quayside.A variety of boats can be hired including a ferry or glass bottomed boat which will also take you around Looe Rock (St Georges island) Try a spot of fishing for yourself, deep sea shark, conger or mackerel are are in the area.

Looe hosts a range of events including sailing regattas, Looe music festival, carnival week and even a duck race! New Year at Looe is made really special with the whole town celebrating in fancy dress and fireworks at midnight off the beach. It is among the top 10 English destinations to be at New year!You may wish to explore the Eden project, 25 miles from Millendreath, combined with the Lost gardens of Heligan (approx same distance) or The beautiful old fishing port of Mevagissey is 27 miles away and even the North coast towns of Newquay and Padstow are within one hours driving time at 37 miles from your villa.Other amenities close by include horse riding, rock climbing, kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving, sea and course fishing and the Monkey sanctuary (10 minutes walk).
