  • "Great property and with the exception of a couple of things (very dirty microwave that was not usuable - old food hanging from the top and dirty mop that made the house smell whenever the cupboard was opened) in good condition and comfortable."

    Everything was as described and overall happy with the holiday and would book again.

    Thank you for your feedback we are happy to hear you had a comfortable stay and would book again. Apologies for the microwave, this has been brought to the attention of our cleaners and a new mop has since been purchased. We look forward to welcoming you back to Praa Waves. Property Owner

  • "The property is in a lovely spot but there are a few issues which people should be aware of before they book."

    Firstly, the noise levels. There is a park & car park behind the property which draws walkers very early in the morning & teenagers late at night/early hours of the morning!! Secondly, no sun canopy on the balcony. It wasn’t that hot whilst we were there, but it was too warm to sit on the balcony for any length of time. This meant the lounge was stifling in the afternoons as it is South facing. Some form of sun cover is needed & air conditioning when the weather is hot. The property has good facilities & I can’t think of anything we didn’t have that we needed during our stay. The 2 issues above did spoil our stay & we wouldn’t return to the property for those reasons.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear you found our property to be in a lovely spot. We have stayed at the property numerous times and have never had an issue with the small parking area to the rear of the property situated approximately 150 yards away. It fits about 6 cars and is used by mainly surfers. There is a play area for children with swings etc for public use, and the ‘park’ is the village green about 200 yards away used by dog walkers so it’s too far to be an issue. The balcony is a sun trap and does get hot, especially recently with the current hot spell. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to fit a permanent sun canopy. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment."

    Stunning views. Had everything we needed. Slight problem with patio door key access as the key was bent by previous guests and the note left to inform on arrival was not clear initially that access was still possible but this was resolved quickly the following day. Very quiet surroundings and spacious apartment. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend. Thank you.

  • "I have visited Praa View twice before and it is a brilliant place to stay."

    Unfortunately this time we had a few problems as the heating had been switched to vacation mode and the parking permit had gone missing. There was also a problem with the TV aerial and so we had a workman visit to look at that. And then a sink blocked up which definitely wasn’t anything we had done as I only used it once prior to this occurring. Although these were all minor issues and the office were very helpful, it took a while to deal with them all and generally detracted from what was supposed to be a relaxing short break.

  • "Immaculate clean and comfortable house, would recommend to anyone, fantastic views, couldn't fault anything, even in October you can sit on the balcony behind the glass out of the wind."

    We will definitely book again, more money than we have paid ever in October, but well worth the extra money. Thank you to housekeeping team for leaving so lovely and clean, and the attention to details.

  • "To take two days in effect from a week for cleaning is excessive and with such an expensive property seems unfair"

    Thank you for your feedback. As you can understand, this is mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic requiring extra cleaning which we hope may not have to be in place much longer. We are sorry that this impacted your holiday on this occasion. Property Owner

    Bigger than expected, with the most made of the views. One small ‘niggle’ was that there was no hand sanitiser or hand soap in any of the bathrooms.

  • "I sent an email on the Tuesday of our stay."

    We were locked out of the property when the door slammed shut in the wind. We had no way of contacting you, your wait times were ridiculous. We had no other way of contacting you. I had to borrow a ladder and climb over the balcony! The property was not clean, despite your ‘deep’ cleaning claim. There is only one key for the property, two on the fob but only one fits the door, no idea what the other is for. This is our third stay at this property with another stay booked for next year. We are considering changing that now.

    Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. We are so sorry that you were locked out during your stay and found it difficult to get through to us. We will add a local contact to the details in case this ever happens again. We are also disappointed that you did not find the property as clean as you had expected, we will be taken action to address this. We are looking forward to you staying with us again. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous week and loved everything about the apartment - especially the cleanliness during these strange times."

    Thank you for the flowers and cream tea on arrival. Our only criticism was the very late arrival time of 6.30pm. We appreciate the covid situation, however, this was a bit too late. 4.30pm would have been a far better time.

  • "The property was immaculately presented upon arrival."

    Scones, jam, clotted cream and Cornish apple juice waiting for us was a lovely touch. The area is so quiet, it was easy to relax. We were fortunate with the weather and sitting on the balcony, which gets the sun most of the day, was a delight. We decided not to take our dog with us on this holiday and were glad we made that decision as, being on the first and second floors, the grass area is not easily accessible and dogs are not even allowed on it. So we would have had to take the dog out the front of the property and around to the grass area beyond a tennis court (not available for use) each time. So more dogs allowed rather than dog friendly in my opinion. Other than that I can’t fault the place.

    Spacious and modern. The smart tv s in the living rooms and two of the bedrooms was great, as we had access to Amazon prime and Netflix. Which was fantastic, as the weather in Cornwall was absolutely rubbish last week. We would definitely stay again. Tea towels and oven gloves would of been useful though.

    The apartment is superb - bright, very well equipped with good quality fixtures and fittings. It made for a very comfortable and welcoming home from home. We had a small maintenance problem during our week which was speedily fixed without fuss. The only thing we would have liked which was not supplied was a parasol or sunshade on the patio. Sykes Holidays made all elements of our holiday easy and stress-free; we would highly recommend both this location and the company.

  • "Please take the above as feedback as finally I would like to say the property was the nicest most comfortable property we have stayed in and have already recommended to friends and fellow cornwall lovers."

    The first thing that struck us on arrival is that on the site the property is listed as a house, but on the receipt as an apartment. It soon became clear that there is a ground floor flat beneath the property. This meant there was no direct access to the garden as expected. In fact we had no pass code to access the shared garden area. This we got after a call. The next point was that the property was cold inside. Of the 9 thermostats all were either off or in Holiday mode (frost setting). After finding the thermostat instructions i sorted this. With the 2 items above it would have helped if there was a welcome pack with instructions ie where the towel rail switches are ( another point) where the bins are (yet another), if there was a recycling bin? local amenities (especially as the shop, due to illness, has erratic opening hours). Usually we find having rented in cornwall > 30 times in the last 20 years, there is spare bin bag and a little washing up liquid, but this was not the case here.

    *** Owner Response*** We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Praa Waves. Thank you for your feedback which we found useful. We have now updated our welcome pack which includes the key code for the gates and instructions for the heating. Property Owner

About the location


Marazion 4.5 miles ; Helston 6 miles ; Porthleven 5 miles

The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birth place of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers. There are supermarkets and other retail stores in Penzance (8 miles) and Helston (6 miles).
