Chandella Villa is a much-loved family home with an uninterrupted, ever-changing view of the whole of Mawgan Porth bay.
The beach is a few minutes' walk from the garden along a cliff path, and getting in to the shops and restaurants of Mawgan Porth is easy, too.
Inside, the focal point of the house is the long main room with huge full-length sliding windows looking out onto the beach and the sea. Bright and white, it has distinct sitting and eating areas designed for informality and relaxing.
Also on the upper floor are two good-sized double bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with two singles), a large bedroom with two bunk beds, and a smaller room which can hold a single bed as well. There is a newly-fitted shared bath and shower room with a loo, as well as a separate loo by the hallway. Downstairs there are two double bedrooms looking out over the bay, one with a new ensuite shower and loo, and the master bedroom with a large ensuite bath, shower and loo. There is a hot shower outside as well, for when you come back from the beach!
The house has undergone a recent refurbishment but we have tried to keep the charm of the house, which still has many elements from its building in the 1970s – so please don't expect cutting-edge fixtures and fittings, or immaculate decoration everywhere...
The kitchen, for example, is perfectly functional – with a double sink, gas cooker, separate gas grill, fridge, dishwasher and a microwave/convection oven – but it was obviously put in about 20 years ago. Though once you see the panoramic view from the window you won’t notice the dated design.
Outside there is a spectacular wrap-around balcony for worshipping the sun on, plenty of parking, and a large lawned garden around the house. The garage is big, accessible through the kitchen as well, and makes a great place to put on wetsuits. It also holds the washing machine and dryer, as well as an additional large fridge freezer.
You’ll find that there’s little or no mobile signal here – which most people find is a blessing for a holiday break. But we do have fast free WiFi for those who need to catch up (you don’t have to give out the password if you don’t want to).
Chandella Villa has been at the heart of the most precious holiday memories for our family and our friends – and we welcome you to create your own ones here.
Booking: From 23rd June - weekly over the summer, then after that 3-day long weekends are available as well. Please ask.
