Beach House in Praa Sands, Cornwall, England - Stunning Beach Location, Just 100 Yards From The Sand
Surfside is a newly listed, immaculately presented contemporary holiday home, situated 30 seconds walk from the stunning beach of Praa Sands. This really is a great Beach-House. With clean modern accommodation, stylish design and the perfect location, you will not be disappointed!
Ideal for families looking for a beach holiday, Praa Sands has safe bathing with Lifeguard patrols. Easy access on to the beach is so close that you can literally be on the beach or back at the house in seconds. Time to forget about driving the car, unwind, and enjoy a chilled out holiday on the beach!
There are views from the property over open farmland and out to sea and every morning you will wake up to the gentle sound of waves breaking on to the sand. This is a peaceful location but also very near the beach and all the amenities. With surfboard and wet suit hire, surf tuition and kayak hire you will never be bored of activities to try out. Quietly watch these activities from the Sandbar; a beach side bar/cafe serving food and drinks all day.
The Cornish Coastal footpath leads you in two directions either towards Prussia Cove and Perranuthnoe or Rinsey Head and Porthleven with its choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs.
Surfside has been finished to a high standard offering exceptional comfort and relaxation.

Fantastic, family friendly home
Our week stay here was lovely, the house is of a very high standard and extremally family and baby-toddler friendly which made our holiday so much easier. With lovely outdoor space for both adults and children The beach is a stones throw away, and I'd highly recommend the two cafes on the beach to eat. The location of the house is perfect for exploring Cornwall . Overall we loved our stay here and would happily return if we return to Cornwall.
What can I say!! We had the most amazing week in Surfside. It has everything you could possibly need, it's immaculately clean & tidy and in a perfect location. We were sad to leave this morning but we will be back!!! Thank you so much😍
Great location and very tidy, well kept property in a fantastic location. View from the Mezzanine is beautiful. Literally minutes from the beach. Highly recommended.
Excellent holiday accommodation just a short walk from the beach.
We had a great stay at Surfside. The house is a perfect mix of a coastal holiday retreat and a comfortable family home. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed for a weeks stay and a very short walk to the beach at Praa Sands. The beach is very clean and has two cafe/restaurants, we had dinner at Sands Bar twice and the food was good with great service and a very laid back atmosphere.
The house has lovely decor and was very clean. We made good use of the garden and the deck in the evenings.
We would recommend Surfside as a holiday stay and hope to be back again one day!
A fabulous week
We were a family of 5 adults spending a week at Surfside, ages ranging from 23 - 52 and what a fantastic time we had. This place pretty much has everything you need and made for a very comfortable week. I had wondered how we might cope with just one bathroom but actually it was fine and there was plenty of space in general for us to not be on top of each other. The location though, is the icing on the cake. Just a couple of minutes walk takes you to the beach or coastal path and what a beach it is. It was never super busy despite being holiday time and the bar (2 cocktails for £10)/restaurant/cafe/shop/surfing on the beach means you have everything at your fingertips!! There's a bus that stops pretty much outside the house that takes you to Marazion and Penzance. It was £5 for one way. Having walked from Penzance along the beach (couple of miles), we had the most amazing meal at the Godolphin Arms in Marazion, overlooking the mount and took a cab home that cost £20.
Back to the house then, we had some great relaxing evenings, having barbecues, playing games and enjoying the scrumpy while listening to music, blue toothed through the speaker. The bunk beds aren't suitable for adults. My son slept on the futon on the mezzanine. He said it was very comfy and if I could just make one suggestion to Andrew, it would be to fit a blind to the window that sits directly over the futon. We made do by placing a towel over to stop the bright early morning sun shining straight in the face.
All in all, this was the most perfect holiday for us to kick back and chill and I'd highly recommend it.
A fantastic house thoughtfully designed to accomodate every need and deceptively roomy inside
On the outside the house looks quite small but upon opening the back door the house just unfolded
There were 3 great sized bedrooms plus a mezzanine area with a bed, my daughter claimed this area and spent every night gazing up at the stars - we all took turns in reading the books whilst looking out to sea through the porthole.
The garden and decked area was amazing, private and confined which was great for Charlie our little dog, we didn't need to worry about him getting outside and we enjoyed the BBQ on the decking out back.
We simply adored the area too! We took in a show at Minnack, we walked the coast paths, my husband and son went coasteering at Lizard, we waded back from Mount Michael and sat in a lovely restaurant watching various people trying to cross through the water. We went every day bodyboarding at Praa Sands and although dogs are not allowed on the beach 7am to 7pm - at 6.30pm the beach was full of our 4 legged friends romping through the waves.
This place has everything and I can honestly say that it's the best holiday we have had in years and want to come back next year.
