As featured in The Guardian's '50 best UK holiday cottages', Praaloha is an extraordinary property, boasting its very own heated swimming pool overlooking the Atlantic and jaw-dropping views from almost every room. This stunningly located beach-house is set within private ocean-front gardens and has to be one of the most impressive properties on this coast, ticking all right the boxes for a Cornish escape to remember. Located in the sought after village of Praa Sands, you are a few minutes' stroll from the famous mile-long beach and some of the best surf breaks in the area.
Built for himself by the previous owner who had purchased the private nineteen acre 'Sea Meads' estate, the stunning Praaloha is the jewel in this exclusive enclave consisting of only a handful of private beach houses. Newly refurbished throughout, Praaloha offers five large bedrooms, five bath or shower rooms, two sitting rooms, two kitchens, and a 100m long beach-front garden, giving plenty of room for guests to spread out and enjoy this remarkable home. The private 15m swimming pool and detached pool house and bar make this property even more special and provide the perfect place to relax and take in the views. Head inside the main house and almost every room offers extraordinary sea views, with the main reception room boasting the best of all, with floor to ceiling windows to take in the mesmerising setting, whatever the season. The second ground floor reception room and kitchen make it perfect for large families and groups who want some independence.
If you can pull yourself from the house itself, Praa Sands has the Sandbar a laid back beachside pub, a surf school, seasonal beach café and a local shop. If you feel like travelling a little further, the renowned Victoria Inn at Perranuthnoe and the Falmouth Packet an excellent local pub are only a few miles away as well as the top notch restaurants in Porthleven being only a short drive eastwards (advance booking advisable).
