“Lovely holiday home.”
great location. great for dogs. house was very spacious. only thing to point out is, there are sudden drops after the car park opposite, they are well signposted, but dont let small children run off unsupervised in that direction.

“This house was advertised as sleeping 7 when it actually sleeps 8 , 6 adults and 2 children.”
lovely comfortable house in a beautiful area.
“The chalet was perfect, absolutely perfect.”
Plenty of space for the 5 of us and when friends and family stopped by. Lovely kitchen, comfy beds, great welcome pack and good wifi!
Good communication with Tania prior to arrival who had the property ready for us by 1pm. Lovely welcome pack with all the basics. Extremely well-equipped house with lovely views. Ideal for a family holiday. Looks as though it has been recently painted throughout. Cafe next door very quiet and closed at 5-6pm (early July). Enjoyed a relaxing week here. For those with dogs, the steps from the righthand corner of the carpark next to lifeguards' station lead to a dog-friendly 3-mile empty beach 24/7. To the right of the steps, dogs are allowed early morning and evenings only. Miles of dog walks also through the dunes in both directions.
“House is situated opposite the beach so location is perfect .”
We saw some amazing sunsets from the little balcony. The kitchen/diner is perfect, lounge is great and being able to see the sea is fantastic.. I have only 1 suggestion remove the carpets and put laminate flooring down Which is much easier to keep clean. A lovely place for a family holiday .
“The actual property was wonderful in every way - plenty big enough for our family of 6 adults and 2 children.”
the garden at the front with the sun loungers and table etc., and plenty of room for a bit of a ball game with the children - perfect! The beach 2 mins walk away - brilliant. A very safe, clean, interesting, big beach - clean water - can't praise everything enough. And, of course, last but not least, the weather was on our side. A lovely lovely family holiday!
“We love this property and the owner really goes to town in making it a great place to stay.”
The following comments do not change our view this is a great place to stay. Unfortunately since taken over by Helpful Holidays we are not happy with Helpful Holidays . They emailed to raise a charge as we were on our way. I paid it and then found it had already been paid . I rang and complained. They promised to look into the problem and ring back. They never did. No apology. Now bombarded by Helpful Holidays with emails for property I have never asked for. Great property poor agent!!
“The staff were very helpful.”
We had a problem with the washer/dryer and this got sorted within a couple of days.

In Gwithian Towans, halfway along this fine stretch of sand, a roomy, very well maintained, detached family house over two levels.
Carsilgey has fantastic sea views across its lawned garden – walk across the lawn, through the gate, cross the beach road and car park, and there it is, less than a minutes walk from the front door!
But you don't even have to go that far for your ice-cream or dining out, because conveniently next door is a licensed café/restaurant.
The living room has been extended with a half sun-room to take full advantage of that great view and has glazed doors giving access to the front garden – great sunsets.
At the back of the house is a spacious kitchen-dining room with TV and patio door to a small back garden and parking.
At this level there are three bedrooms – two double with washbasins and sea views, and a twin, along with a shower-room.
Head upstairs to another double bedroom with even better sea views and a bathroom.
And there’s an outdoor shower for sandy bodies.
An excellent family house just across from the beach with nearby Hayle and St.Ives to explore.

About the location
Gwithian Towans (also known as just "Gwithian") is an outstanding beach-side location situated overlooking St Ives Bay and St Ives itself in the distance. The location, so close to the sea, makes it ideal for families, with three and a half miles of sandy beach, rock pools and caves to explore, acres of marram-grassed sand dunes (known locally as 'towans') - and some of the best surfing in the country. There's also a shop/Post Office and a pub in Gwithian itself as well as several beach cafes.
The beach is popular with surfers as the swell coming in from the ocean provides good all year round surfing conditions. Common seals are a regular sight near the beach and the area is a breeding ground for colonies of seabirds such as guillemots, razorbills and cormorants. The Sunset Surf beachside café and bar overlooks the beach and is open all year, serving locally sourced, seasonal ingredients wherever possible and nearby the Jam Pot Café and Shop, a former 19th century coastguard lookout, is where you can enjoy home cooked snacks and be distracted by the stunningly natural views out over St Ives Bay. Lifeguard cover is provided from Easter until the October half-term holidays.
You can walk for miles along The South West Coastal Path which passes close by and there are some good cycle routes in the area too.
You really are spoilt for choice with the enormous variety of attractions on offer in this part of Cornwall. The seaside town of St Ives, with its galleries and restaurants, Land's End, Penzance and St Michael's Mount (NT), as well as the Helford River on the South coast with its inlets and creeks, are all within an easy drive.
Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 7, including babies and is best for a maximum of 6 adults.
