  • "I only have two comments to be shared with the property owner as it was a wonderful house and stay."

    The downstairs toilet lock is broken, you can’t get out without help and the sewage smell was rather horrible by the driveway

    This is being worked on by South West water, I apologise. from Charlotte Property Owner

  • "Outside water tap and 3 x gates in garden all padlocked and could not be used."

    Would have been very helpful to have had the codes. There is still a strong smell of sewerage from the pump at the front which usually meant a strong intake of breath before you ventured out,especially as this was the only exit in view of the above. Surely this could be sanitised in some way as has been done by the waterboard at our apartment block.

    Thank you for your delightful feedback. The reason for the lock on the hosepipe is because we have been in a hosepipe ban for over 18 months now and as an owner I am responsible for its usage and therefore could face a fine. As for the padlocks on the gates these are for your security and safety and the passcode is always the same as the door code as mentioned in you personalised welcome letter. The slight smell has been dealt with now the carbon filters on the septic tank have been changed and the tank re emptied. A lot of surface water due to the heavy rain recently had caused issues. Only lovely sea air to be smelled now. It’s a shame you haven’t mentioned the positives on my lovely home. If you would have called one of the three contact numbers on the form we could have assisted you. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at this Holiday Home, It is much bigger than it appears in the photographs."

    It felt spacious & was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, Kitchen fully equipped. The Garden was fully enclosed for our dog & has a lovely decked seating area with a great sea view, 3 minute walk to the Beautiful beach. The garden area is a great spot for star gazing at night & the outside light was a great benefit when needed. The pantry essentials plus dog treats were a lovely gesture. We received a curtesy call on our way from the housekeeper informing us the home was ready earlier than expected. It was lovely to receive another call a few days later asking was everything ok & brought us clean towels end of the first week. Highly recommended.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback on our home. We are so pleased you had a super holiday and do hope that you will return to us. Kindest regards from Charlotte Property Owner

    We couldn’t have asked for more. Short walk to the beach, Praa Sands was stunning. I would thoroughly recommend. Thank you.

  • "Lovely comfortable, well equipped house, tho the master bedroom doesn't have the sea view."

    Short walk from an amazing beach. Difficult to find initially: it's via Pengersick Ln. The actual road isn't named. It's access is between Sandy Stores and the holiday park, and directly opposite Trewartha Rd. Wish this info had been provided. Option for the provision of dog crates would make it properly dog friendly as we had to bring our own on a trailer. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend.

  • "This is a lovely property with a really good entry time."

    The property was clean, well maintained with a really secure garden for the dogs. It's just a short walk to the beach and with the local shop and cafe just around the corner. The cherry on the cake was the amazing weather we had.

  • "Excellent holiday home, well furnished & equipped & spotlessly clean."

    The beds were very comfortable & the standards throughout were high. Only a short walk to the beach which was lovely. Only downside was that it was the least generous in terms of a welcome pack of any holiday cottages we have stayed in, very frugal. Previous holiday homes have provided hampers of local produce which really did feel like a very warm welcome from the property owners & the area & what it can provide locally.

  • "This is a lovely place to stay in a great location, less than 5 minutes walk from the beach."

    Well equipped, plenty of room for two adults and two dogs. This property is at the higher end when it comes to places to stay and there were some nice added extras like dog treats for the dogs and shower gel and moisturiser for the humans but I felt it lacked a few things too. There were no extra human treats which is quite the norm now ( there was milk and sugar and some tea and coffee). There was also no kitchen paper and only one loo roll in each bathroom which felt mean when you are charging almost £1000 for a week out of season. There was also no battery in the weighing scales and when you have to measure out dog food everyday this was annoying. The info folder was also out if date and said happy Christmas and there was no additional info like where is good to eat or some activities you might like to try. It just felt like there was a lack of care and attention to detail in some aspects All that said this is a lively place in a great location and I would possibly stay again.

  • "The house was perfect, it had everything we needed."

    Perfect place for couples or a family holiday. Also great for our dog the beach and other walks so close. Just remember dogs are not allowed on the beach during July and August. We will definitely be returning.

  • "We have just come back after the best week at 3 Praa Cove."

    The photos just don’t do it justice, it is in a perfect location with incredible views. We were very lucky with the weather, but even on the one bad day we enjoyed playing board games (that were provided) in the property. It is a very secure garden, which the dogs loved. Very friendly hosts which were contactable should we need them, and everything was provided from tea and coffee to shower gel and shampoo! We would highly recommend a stay here, and make sure you try KC Fish and Chips! Along with the shop at the top of the street that has a large Christmas section! Overall a perfect holiday, a perfect location and we hope to return soon.

    We wanted for nothing. The detail was incredible which matters a lot when staying for the week. The location is great for walks on the beach and to get to the bar on the beach. It is one we would look to definitely book again. We fell in love with the place

  • "Thank you for a wonderful stay at 3 Praa Cove."

    The house is lovely, spacious, clean, really comfortable and well equipped. It is an ideal location for the beach. The only thing we would say that is missing is a BBQ. I think there is a problem with the sewage pump which is located on the road just outside the driveway, if the wind was in a certain direction we could smell it quite strongly. I’m sure this is something that will be sorted out so it certainly wouldn’t put me off booking the house again.

  • "The property is in a great location, just a short walk to the beautiful beach."

    Also easily accessed is the coastal path. We did two walks along the coastal path, one in each direction and the scenery was stunning; really lovely stretches of the coastal path to try. The property was clean, beautifully presented and really well equipped with everything you could need. The hosts were extremely helpful too.

  • "This house was truly fantastic."

    The level of supplied equipment outstanding, and a welcome pack of food and even dog treats! We were very happy with the standard of everything - to the point that finding anything to complain about has proven difficult. I have three minor observations that could top off what is a lovely house: Access to the beach via the garden gate means you can't close it without bolting it, this makes getting back from the beach tricky. A coffee table in the living room would reduce the chances of drinks getting spilt while seated around the L-shaped settee. Lastly, directions to the house could be improved - the house is off Penwerris Rise, not Castle Drive.

    Thank you for your lovely review and your suggestions I will certainly take them on board. I am glad you hear that you and your canine friends had a great time. With the house being a new build some sat navs aren't quite up to speed but I will speak with Sykes and get them to update some directions for me. We have only just acquired this property in February and taken a deal of time kitting it out and getting it right and yes you are correct coffee tables a good idea. Thank you. I do hope that you will consider returning, keep safe from Charlotte. 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).

Please inform us for housekeeping purposes if you have more than 1 infant attending the property, , so we can provide the correct amount of linen.
