Hugging the south coast between Penzance and Helston, Praa Sands is a beautiful mile long beach in Mounts Bay, and with its calm shallows, fine sand and excellent surfing conditions, is the perfect place for spending relaxing Cornish holidays with family or friends.

Recently refurbished to an exceptional standard, the property boasts three spacious bedrooms (one of which is en-suite) and a fabulous open plan living space, all tastefully styled with gorgeous furniture and contemporary colour schemes. The modern kitchen features lovely sea views and comes fitted with a range of appliances and utensils, while the bright and airy dining room with its large table and ocean panorama beyond the garden, is the ideal spot for sharing meals and conversation together. For days when you fancy a meal out, the Sand Bar which perches right on the beach, is just a few minutes’ walk away, and here you’ll be able to enjoy stone baked pizzas, gourmet burgers and a variety of light bites with some of the best beach and bay views in Cornwall. Unwind with a good book or magazine in the living room to the sound of waves breaking on the beach or laze back in the summer room to discuss the day’s plans. After your adventures out and about you'll be able to look forward to sinking into your very own private hot tub while dinner sizzles away on the BBQ.

Surrounded by coastal paths and walking routes, guests can choose from a host of ways to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery, whether out on the water SUPping and surfing, or on dry land, meandering the coast and countryside by bike or on foot. Nearby, the coastal town of Marazion with its famous St Michaels Mount, is just 10 minutes-drive away, while the iconic fishing town of Porthleven with its storm-driven harbour wall and wonderful restaurants lies the same distance away in the other direction. Slightly further afield but within easy reach by car, the towns of Penzance and Newlyn are well worth a visit, as is the charming village of Mousehole and the small but beautifully formed Lamorna Cove.

Loved Kerenza Sands!

Kerenza Sands is brilliant! We had looked forward to (and saved up!!) for our trip to Cornwall for over a year. Arriving in Storm Kathleen was quite spectacular - we had all weathers, as expected. The house is so warm and cozy for rainy days - and also bright and airy when the sun shines - luckily we had one sunny warmish day, spent chilling/sunning on the patio and enjoying the hot tub. So amazing having the beach so close - and our small dog loved all the space/freedom. Co-op is a short drive away for supplies (so handy) - and The Welloe a short walk, for eating out, was really convenient (delicious pizza's, burgers, fish and chips etc) - the service was really quick (I am sure the will get super busy in high season, probably best to book). We spent some of our time exploring the area further afield with plenty of walks - and mostly enjoying precious family time with our teenagers. One week wasn't quite enough! Thank you Kerenza Sands for sharing your home with us.

Comfortable house in amazing location

Lovely house. We had a comfortable stay. The interior was spacious, clean and light. The location by the sea is a major plus looking out beyond the garden (complete with rabbits) to the rolling waves. There is a cupboard with games and paper provided. Hot tub is clean and well maintained. Would visit again and throughly recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay here and loved all the extra features and practicalities. Hot tub was lovely but very overlooked by dog walkers and cannot enjoy the full sea view. Idea location for local harbour and villages with a bus service on the same road. Annoyingly, we couldn’t find any cutlery! (Except plastic) and couldn’t reach anyone on the office phone. Furthermore, there was no guidance on turning the hot water on which, proved stressful on our wedding day. We also had an issue with a putrid stench from the on-suite bathroom (likely from septic tank) which made that room intolerable.

Cherrie, 17 Dec 2023

Hi Cherrie, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay here and the location of the property. We do apologise the concealed cutlery draw was difficult to find, we will look to make this clearer for future guests. The office phone is not monitored out of office hours, the out of hours number is to be contacted during this time so we do apologise this was not picked up. We will look into the smell from the drains and we do hope to welcome you to stay with us again in the future. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team

Comfortable home, great location

Kerenza Sands was a very comfortable, well equipped house in a quiet spot within Praa Sands. The location was great, an easy walk to the beach and it was lovely to see the sea from the property. We had great weather, so made good use of the garden and its lovely garden furniture and parasol! It’s a well placed property for exploring The Lizard and other parts of West Cornwall.

Gaynor, 21 Oct 2023

Hi Gaynor, thank you for your lovely review and your kind words, we are so pleased to read that you had a wonderful stay and great weather. We will pass on your lovely review to the owner and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again one day. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team.

Hope - The Luxury Coastal Team - 07 Oct 2023

Lovely place wonderful views

We were a bit hesitant but should not have worried the reviews are correct wonderfull and clean nice decor excellent views nice and clean jacuzzi. Just a couple of things could improve although minor for the price you pay better quality toilet rolls at least ones that you don’t push your finger through very false economy when only one supplied for the week at least 2 would be better Better instructions on how to work the tv comments had been made it needs a aerial but we came to the conclusion that the signal was not great so you must have to use the apps to watch tv this needs clarification The side gate that enters the garden needs some sort of guard across we had a small chowowa type size pet and they could get through the gate through the bars All in all a great place if you like a nice view minutes from the beach the pictures on the web look nice but you need to see how lovely it really is. Well done Luxury Coastal

Roy, 24 Jun 2023

Hi Roy, Thankyou for your review on your stay at Kerenza Sands. We are so glad to hear you had a lovely stay. Its also nice hear you had a nice view and it was not too far from the beach. Thankyou for your feedback and we will pass it onto the owner. We hope to welcome you back to one of our properties again in the future. Kind Regards Luxury Coastal

Katie - The Luxury Coastal Team - 24 Jun 2023

Wonderful relaxing week a stones throw from the beach

When booking and before travelling the staff at Luxury Coastal were outstanding, assisting with finding accommodation that was accessible and helping with queries. Nothing was too much trouble leaving me with faith that they were happy to ensure we got the best accommodation rather than just pursuing a booking. Kerensa Sands itself was perfect for what we were looking for, the one level accommodation suited by 89 year old father who has access needs. The decor and furnishing are great, we had family visit us three times in the week and there was everything we needed in the kitchen to host lunch and a bonus that the weather was great and we sat outside on deck in the sun. As a dog owner the proximity to the beach and coastal walks was fantastic. Every morning we walked up to the local shop to collect the newspaper for my father, delivered this to the property, out the back gate and on the beach in 3 mins!

Jayne, 20 May 2023

Hello Jayne, thank you for leaving us such a lovely review. We are so pleased we could help you find suitable accommodation to allow you to get a relaxing break away with your father. We would love to welcome to back and help with any other queries you may have in the future. Best Wishes, Luxury Coastal.

Emily - 20 May 2023

Nice place

Really great location. Lovely welcome pack. Comfortable ensuite and twin room. Spacious. Well equipped kitchen. Views and proximity to beach - PERFECT. So many lovely places to visit locally. Garden furniture comfortable, gorgeous on a sunny day. All that said, I felt some items in the house need attention: sink drains very slowly/blocked, fridge door, door handle in lounge, cleaning around the fireplace, bbq is rusty and can’t be used, no recycling. (I left a note) Had I paid more than £1400 for the week I might have been a bit disappointed but as it was - overall a 4 out of 5 for me.

Guest, 20 May 2023

Hi Jane, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on your recent stay at Kerenza Sands.

A perfect view!

We had a wonderful holiday in this gorgeous holiday home. The view was incredible and the conservatory a perfect place to watch the world go by. It’s the perfect place for your dog too with a safe walk straight from the garden, across the green and onto the beach- no lead required!

Pre Christmas getaway in Praa

We arrived the week before Christmas with three excited little ones and were really impressed with the house. The living room and dining areas are beautiful and the bedrooms are spacious. Given it was so close to Christmas our children were sad that there were no decorations but the games cupboard helped make up for this. It was a really cold period in December and the storage heaters were set at a specific temperature- this was too low for the conditions and the bedrooms were incredibly cold. One of our children was poorly and the lack of heat was a real concern. There were a number of key kitchen items missing (tea towels, baking trays) which made a stay with young children challenging. As did the tv which does not have freebies to standard channels- we had to log into personal accounts which didn’t feel right. Last, we loved the location and wanted to re-book for 2023. Prices have risen massively and what was a great treat is sadly out of reach.

Helen, 07 Feb 2023

Hi Helen, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. It's great to hear that the little ones made good use of the game's cupboard. We are sorry to hear of the issues encountered with the storage heaters and lack of kitchen facilities and will certainly be looking into how this can be improved. Should you still be interested in booking for this year, we would be happy to apply a return discount to your booking. Best wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team

Emma - The Luxury Coastal Team - 07 Feb 2023

Luxury - I dont think so!

The property has been styled beautifully and its location provides stunning views. However the attention to detail was missed and the customer service was really poor on this letting. Paying full price for lack of of luxury is appaling! My issue comes down to three major points - the broken dishwasher that was full of stagnant water on arrival and lacking it's front door, the lack of response from the letting agency and its representative until near the end of our stay, and the hidden cutlery draw, which I didnt find until the penultimate day! If you're going to let a property labled as 'luxury' then for heaven's sake ensure that as an agent your inspect it or have the cleaners inform you of any problems before the next set of guests arrive and that problems are fixed ASAP. I had to wash up manually during our stay (wasting my relax time), not the end of the world I know, but not something I was expecting. I had to go out a buy a basic set of cutley as could not find the modern hidden draw in the new kitchen as it's so well hidden!! why??? why not label it or leave some sort of instructions in a guest manual (which was no where to be seen or found) as to where everything is and how everythign works. Also please tell me what is the point in having heating and radiators that are operated via an App!!! if you don't leave details of how this works. And why presume we all use apps???! The weather can be quite stormy in Cornwall on the coast so why on earth was the garden furniture not better secured - we had to rescue half of it from the neighbour's garden again becuase no thought was given to this weather fact and its impact!! The conservatory main window has at some point been broken as a window film was applied on the remaining single pain - this leaked during our stay and the heavy rains that came and went daily. Shouldn't this have been fixed at the end of the summer? Again appearances can be deceiving!! so total luxury at Kerenza - I don't think so!! You can have as much nice and quality furniture and cushions as you like, all in a modern style giving the look of luxury but please have the basics right if you're going to charge the luxury price!!
