- English, German
I am an artist and Rainbow's End is my dream place where I relax with friends and family. I am enjoying learning German and am happy to correspond in German, though there may be a few mistakes and I may resort to English.
Geraldine purchased this House in 2000
Why Geraldine chose Praa Sands
Praa Sands is an old fashioned seaside resort with a beautiful beach. We love the peace and lovely views. There are great coastal walks whether you go east or west from the house and beautiful places nearby like Loe Bar lake near Porthleven. Supermarkets are a 15 minute drive away in Penzance and Helston. There is a small convenience store 2 minutes from the house for basic items and newspapers.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful and restful location. The mile long sandy beach can be reached by walking through the garden and along a short path. There is a family friendly pub and beach cafe. The western end of the beach is busier in the summer and the eastern end is usually quiet. There are sea-views from most rooms and an expansive deck with large garden.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
As good as before
We stayed the week with our two grown up children, playing golf, going to the Minack theatre and eating very well. The house suits our requirements perfectly being comfortable and stylish and well placed both for trips and for walks along the beach
Paradise at Rainbow's End
Rainbow's End is a special house with sea views from most rooms. It is completely private with no one overlooking the property or garden. It is well equipped and comfortably furnished with plenty of interesting books and dvds as well as a selection of games for rainy days.
Located on the south coast, there is easy access by scenic train ride (or car) to St Ives, and by car to Newlyn, Penzance, Marazion, Porthleven, Falmouth etc. There is plenty to see in the area from dolmens and standing stones, the old tin mines, beautiful private and National Trust gardens, a Seal Sanctuary, and wonderful walks. For foodies there are excellent Michelin recommended restaurants in the above mentioned towns. We would love to return to Rainbow's End for another holiday.
Fantastic house in a brilliant location
Wonderful house, we felt at home and relaxed straight away. The property has everything you need and more. Thank you so much for a lovely holiday.
A wonderful house with the best view and you hear the sea when you lay in bed.
Everything you need is there!
Wonderful setting and stylish property
A very well designed and stylish property set in the middle of Praa Sands with a lovely view out to sea. The large decking area is excellent for sitting in the sun.
Spacious yet cosy house in a great location - loads to do!
We really enjoyed our 10 day stay at Praa Sands and made the most of the house's BBQ, Wetsuits and Body Boards - beach is 2 mins walk. The house was plenty big enough for our family of 5 yet cosy in the evenings. Although we had mixed weather, we managed to fit in; A coastal walk to Porthleven (dinner at Rick Stein's), Cycling around Loe Lake, Godolphin House and Hill, St. Michael's Mount (go early to avoid queues), St. Ives, Minack Theatre as well as various beaches. The highlight for the kids and me was Coasteering from Praa Sands (http://www.kernow-coasteering.co.uk/) - great fun. Although the local pub/bar isn't great - there are lots of old pubs and quality seafood restaurants in the neighbouring villages/towns. We'll be back...
