Very very disappointed with this property.Arrived to a very smelly chalet.Once inside we could see it was dirty,and mould growing up most walls.Not what you want when you have just drove through the night.Stayed one night then left.Owner very uncooperative.Given one star but doesn't really deserve that!

Owner's Response: This lady declined the property quoting a severe medical condition of which we were unaware. When she declined access for the cleaning company to assess, we refunded her in full, paid two nights in full for local accommodation, and found alternative accommodation in a reputable Holiday Park in Mullion, for which we paid in advance for the week, unfortunately she also turned it down quoting 'thin mattresses' all the above carried out promptly without question. After some time we began receiving demands for further money with threats, which is now subject to legal appraisal therefore we are not able to comment further."

From the Owner

We visited in Praa Sands as a holiday destination while we were living in Malaysia and instantly fell in love with this beautiful area, especially with the golden sandy beach. The chalet is situated in the extensive grounds of our house, The White House, Praa Sands. Our children spend most of their leisure time down on the beach and walking or cycling in the area and on numerous paths on the hills overlooking the bay.

Praa Sands is a renowned beach facing south, and stretching to almost a mile. Its shallow waters make Praa Sands a popular choice for families and a lifeguard service covers a marked section of the beach.

Facing south the beach is said to have the longest sunshine hours in the country.

The bay also attracts surfers as part of the beach has consistent large waves.

There is a cafe and two restaurants available and equipment hire on the beach.


Near the beach is Pengersick Castle, reputed to be the most haunted in Britain and well worth a visit.

The chalet is 0.4 miles to the local Londis shop and public telephone, 0.5 miles to the beach and Sandbar pub and restaurant, and 0.2 miles to the Praa Sands golf course.

St Michaels Mount and Marazion is 4 miles away, and Pothleven's historic harbour is 2.5 miles which can also be reached by Cornwall's famous coastal path from Praa Sands beach.
