We were very fortunate to get to book Sandpipers because of the busy time of year, coinciding with the main holiday weeks and the Boardmasters Festival and we are so glad we did.
The house is fantastic.
There were 4 of us but it can easily house 5 or 6 adults. It's in a great location, in walks distance to Newquay but far enough away to avoid kiss me quick hats and knobbly knee contests.
It is also in what feels like a little luxury village, albeit a super friendly one, where people with houses who are there regularly welcome you instead of dreading you!
Porth Beach is literally on the door step and three is a lovely vibe on a night as people meet to BBQ. Not just youngsters, but old couples and families.
And during the day the protected beach and inlet make it perfect for families.
In driving or a long walk is Watergate Bay with some great surfing, and a few good restaurants are also pretty close.
The house itself has 2 really good sized bedrooms and 1 a little smaller but that can still sleep 2 in a single bed and pull out.
The centre of the house is the dining kitchen, we ended up cooking every morning and most evenings, including out by th beach in the little Sandpipers raised seating area - great for a private BBQ.
Everything was beautifully presented in the house. The cleaner gave us all the info. And the wifi works a treat (which is good as in Porth Beach it is hard to get a phone signal!).
We loved it, and will be back.
Thank you Jill.
The house is gorgeously decorated and the location is absolutely brilliant. Within walking distance to Newquay centre and Watergate Bay. I couldn't rate it highly enough.
There were plenty of games available, our favourite was jenga! So lots to keep children entertained on rainy days.
We did have a bit of an issue getting in as we were sent the wrong code for the key safe, but soon sorted with the agency.
We stayed as a group of 4 adults and there was plenty of room. We stayed just before peak season so not many people in the other houses and the beach wasn't too busy which we loved.
Would also recommend the Mermaid pub. Lovely house and I could easily live there!
