We will most definitely be recommending you to our friends and using Elite West Holidays in the future.Many thanks once again"

"Hi Nick Apologies I meant to drop you a note earlier than this however here goes.. I just wanted to say thank you for the weeks let on the By the Beach property. We had a great time and my wife loved the accommodation. There was a far higher standard of fit out then we expected with every known utensil and appliance known to man or woman available, all in brand new condition and ready for use. The cottage was very roomy and comfortable and we spent every evening in enjoying ourselves. One small note was the intermittent wifi, not sure what was up but it wasn't working all the time or too well. Hearing the sea every morning and watching the amazing sunsets was superb and we left with many happy memories. If we are booking Cornwall again I am sure we will be in touch. From my personal perspective the holiday has been easy to book, thoroughly enjoyable and exceeded our expectations throughout. This was from the time I first spoke with you right through to the time we arrived back home, replete and relaxed in the best possible way. Many thanks Kind regards John Allan"
