  • "Superb location - just a stone’s throw from Polzeath beach."

    Comfortable bed and lots of space. Little balcony is a great bonus. Would definitely rent this place again when we next visit Polzeath.

  • "I was very dissatisfied when we arrived to find no heating on , it is not expecting to much to make arrangements for some one to switch the heating on 24hr in advance."

    The supplementary heating was not easy to find, placed in a more prominent position would be helpful. The hob was reported broken on Monday ,no response, after another phone call the engineer replaced the unit on Wednesday the day before we finished our holiday. The engineer was helpful and efficient.

  • "We have just had the most amazing holiday at Baywatch."

    We were a little worried as some of the previous reviews mentioned the property being a bit tired but this was NOT the case at all. It was spacious for our family, comfortable, clean, lovely kitchen facilities (the only improvement here would be a dishwasher!) and it was great to have a washer and dryer after long days on the beach! Great bathroom and wonderful shower. Really cute little garden and we woke up with the property surrounded by rabbits each morning. Such a great location - 1 minute walk to the beach! We already booked for next year whilst we were there. Thank you.

  • "We had a lovely time and location of the property is perfect avoiding any steep slopes and hills on your way to the beach."

    Had everything we needed within a stones throw, beds were comfy, kitchen perfect and was lovely to have options to sit out at the property to relax. Only things we did notice were the drains seem to fire up from the sink/toilet/etc leaving a bit of a constant whiff and questions being asked!! Also the stairs are incredibly noisy, if sleeping on the top floor and you need the loo in the night or are first up, you’re guaranteed to stir/wake others. That said I would definitely recommend as positives easily outweigh the negatives! Thank you!

  • "We loved our stay at Baywatch Sands, despite not having great weather !"

    ! I think we were lucky to be one of the first to benefit from the recent upgrading/ refurbishment, the decor is now really fun and fresh and the new kitchen and bathroom are good quality and well equipped. The location is superb and it’s very handy to be able to park directly outside. We have been coming to Rock and Polzeath for 30 years but this was definitely one of the nicest places and locations we’ve stayed, we will definitely look at rebooking. Just a couple of things we thought would make it perfect…. firstly, gates on either side of the top terrace so you can leave the door open and have a secured outside space for children or dogs. And secondly, if possible to fit either 2 singles or a king size bed into the top bedroom as a double bed feels just too small to get a decent night sleep in !

    Thank you for your very kind words about your stay in Baywatch Sands. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Your comments have been noted and very much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Great location but the property needs some attention as very dated."

    The outdoor space could use some table/chairs as currently there is none. Great for a short break and although dated, had everything we needed.

    The property is being renovated as we speak so please return to see the finished project! As for garden furniture it is all under the stairs, it’s stored there until the weather is warm enough for it to go outside. Property Owner

  • "Property is in a great location very close to the beach and amenitiies and you don't need to walk up or down a hill which you do with most other properties in the area!"

    There's no doubt that the property needs modernising however I could see that from the photo's before I booked it so I was aware. The property was really clean with new bedding (I decided to strip the bed when I left and duvets, pillows, mattresses etc were spotless). Would have been nice to have a dishwasher but appreciate not the space but it did have a washing machine which is needed being near the beach! I would stay again..

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback, it is really appreciated. We are pleased you found the property to be so clean and that you would stay here again - we would love to welcome you back! John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "This property is very well located but unfortunately very tired and needs a lot of attention."

    Little effort made to make the exterior patio look attractive or welcoming (just a concrete back yard really with loose pavings). A picnic table rather than an exterior dining table with beach chairs too low to sit on to eat at the table. No washing line (John Bray employee did drop one off a couple of days after requesting it). The bathroom towel heater old and rusty. Tiles coming off the wall at the end of the bath. A "barrier" made out of mastic on the bathroom shelf to divert the shower water from going on the floor. Curtains not lined and no shutters so tricky to sleep beyond 5am. Would rather have had a coffee machine than a microwave. No freezer just a small under counter fridge. All cupboards smelt musty. We had a great holiday in wonderful Polzeath but would not return to this property.

    We have been reviewing all of our feedback over this years season, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. Your comments were noted by us here at John Bray Cornish Holidays and were raised to rectify. We hope you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. John Bray on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

  • "Amazing Location so close to the beach, its a great family base for a week to explore Polzeath."

    we loved its quirky layout and has lots of room, for our family of 4, 2x kids aged 9 and 12. The parking space is a huge benefit, with out door space and a veranda to watch the sun go down from. Could do with a dishwasher (no one likes to wash-up on holiday) and drying racks for wetsuits and clothes. Its so good we are booking again.

    James we are delighted you enjoyed your break at Baywatch Sands and loved it’s quirky nature as much as we do! Unfortunately there’s no room for a dishwasher but we will look at providing a drying area for wetsuits. We look forward to you staying again x Property Owner

Baywatch Sands rests in the heart of Polzeath, Cornwall, just paces away from the beach.

Enjoying a balcony to savour the sea-views, a country-style interior and off-road parking for three cars, this holiday home is idyllic for a family of five or a group of friends, plus their four-legged companion.

Enter the well-equipped kitchen, which offers everything you need for a self-catered stay, including an electric oven, induction hob, microwave, and washing machine for keeping clothes fresh.

Gather in the dining room to tuck-into delectable meals and why not uncork a bottle of wine to celebrate the occasion?

Venture upstairs to discover the sitting room; here you can unwind on the sofa with a cup of tea as the TV keeps you entertained, or admire the sea-air from the balcony.

After a day filled with fun, the ground-floor offers a bathroom for a soothing soak and an overhead shower to wash away the sand.

When sleep calls, there is a family bedroom with ample storage which allows for a child to sleep in their own single room next to the adult’s double room.

There is also a double on the first floor, with lovely views of the surrounding greenery.

During the daytime there is plenty on offer in the village of Polzeath, potter to the beach to feel the sand between your toes and to take on the waves on a board, which can be hired at the beach.

Alternatively, take a more laid-back approach and feast in the Oyster Catcher Pub or Waterfront Restaurant, both in walking distance from Baywatch Sands.

Those with children will enjoy the local watersports offered at Rock beach, reachable via scenic coastal walks or by car.

From Rock you can also take the foot ferry to Padstow for retail therapy and an obligatory Cornish pasty and ice cream!
