  • "Had a lovely week, weather was in our favour, apartment was very well equipped, apartment nice and warm, but could not open window at night due to ground floor, would have had a better view if you stayed on the second floor, bed very comfortable."

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We always sleep with a window open and had not considered that others may be concerned about security at night. Therefore we have fitted window restrictors to all the windows, to enable them to be left open at night. We also agree the sea view would be more expansive from the top floor, although this apartment is perfect for those with mobility problems, as no risk of lift malfunction. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for a beautiful stay in Praa, a long time favourite for our Family which goes back over 4o years."

    Ocean Blue was presented as advertised with a wonderful array of creature comforts and every appliance required to become a MasterChef. It was very clean (Thank you Rhona), very comfortable and convenient to the world class beach. We were also blessed with great weather to make the setting even more enjoyable. Small point, surprised that there were no power points for shavers or tooth brushes- or none that we found. Key safe refused to open to code on departure but we coped. In sum, an idyllic stay and we probably will return ere long.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will look into the socket in the bathroom. There are adaptors in the drawer in lounge. Not sure why the ke key safe suddenly did not work, salty sea air ?sure Not sure why the key safe have you a problem Property Owner

  • "Pro’s: ideal position, near beach."

    Roomy patio to sit and sea watch. Bed v.comfortable. Well equipped kitchen(. Perhaps a bit too much, definately a cooks kitchen). Comfortable temperature. All on one level. Near Penzance and Helston for shopping. Cons: minute en suite, couldnt use. No extractor in bathroom for steam, smells etc, had to leave door permanently wedged open. Opening windows in bedroom were side window only, so not too safe to leave open all night as on groun d floor, but had to,as so stuffy. No welcome pack, just small milk, bottle wine. Literature in prop states “tea, coffee, milk, sugar and bread. J cloth, sponge washing up liquid ( no washing up bowl), dishwasher tablets, roll bin liners. There is also a complimentary welcome pack of Cornish produce and bottle of wine for you to enjoy” One other irritation: no cupboard space left in kitchen cupboards for groceries, tins etc????? All full of stuff. In all , a bit disappointing, as it would have been perfect for less able bodied people, as all on one level, but the bathroom shower was over a very difficult to get in bath. I have the bruises to show for it after manoeuvring around taps! Arthritic legs don't bend or go climbing very well, this is where the walk in en suite was going to be more useful to us, but is was incredibly tiny. The rooms were all roomy, so we could not understand this tiny shower, which at best would possibly accommodate a child! I must say this was our first Sykes property rental, and Ill probably never hear the end of the missing wellcome pack and Cornish cream tea, from my other half as he was told before we went from regular renters of yours that there would be cream tea waiting!

    Thank you so much for your well-considered and lengthy review. I am glad to hear that you found the beds comfortable and the location suitable. I would just like to respond to some of the misunderstandings. Firstly, we do not advertise a cream tea and have never provided cream tea as part of the welcome pack, especially as there is wonderful café about 200 yards around the corner who do an excellent, authentic Cornish cream tea. I do understand that the bathrooms are not set up for people with disabilities, the architect constructed the second shower room in the main bedroom to maximise space in what is a two bedroomed apartment. The second shower room is probably more valuable to families with young children. Our housekeeper, provides her contact number and is always on hand to deal with any enquiries you may have had during your stay. Property Owner

  • "We were very impressed with the  modern and  spacious  flat which  was immaculately clean."

    There is a good view of the sea from the large and sunny terrace, which had the benefit of being partially covered and with a stretch of wall which would give shade or shelter if required. The beds are very comfortable, and  there is enough equipment to cater for a large banquet. We received  welcome gifts of  flowers, biscuits, fudge, milk and Prosecco which is always a good start. A lot of thought had also gone into providing a folder with plenty of information about the flat, and the local area.  On our second day I sent a text with a query and the manager replied immediately so excellent service.Only negative comment is that the en suite is quite cramped but not an issue since there is a spacious bathroom.

About the location

PRAA SANDS

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).
