Enjoying exceptional views of the sand dunes, beach and sea, Sunset Beach is the end property of Sandbay, a small complex of beachside apartments in Perranporth. Literally metres from the three-mile long beach, your toes could be in the golden sand within a couple of minutes of leaving the apartment, or a two-minute level walk in the opposite direction takes you to Perranporth's shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
A first-floor, pet-friendly apartment, Sunset Beach is reached up a flight of external steps and the front door opens into the hallway with access to the living areas and two bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, radio, fridge/freezer and ample crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment.
The comfortable sitting and dining room is a good size room furnished with two sofas (one of which is a sofabed), a rocking chair, TV and DVD player. A box of children's toys is available as are a number of DVDs in the cupboard. The dining area has an extendable table with six chairs (two more chairs can be brought through from the bedrooms if needed) and is positioned by the large sliding windows to make the most of the stunning sea view. During the day it's a prime spot to people-watch, and in the evening you can see Perranporth's spectacular sunsets from the comfort of your holiday home as the sun sinks into the sea.
Two bedrooms sleep six guests, and an extra two can be accommodated on the sofabed in the lounge. Bedroom one has sturdy wooden twin beds (3') and a fitted wardrobe, inside which are stored board games, windbreaks, four folding chairs and two folding children's chairs for the beach.
Bedroom two is a family room, furnished with a double bed (4'6") and bunk beds (3'). A wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables provide ample storage, and the room benefits from those incredible views across the beach to Chapel Rock.
The bathroom is fitted with a bath with shower over it, WC, basin and electric fan heater. The rest of the apartment is heated by electric heaters fitted in each room and the windows are double glazed. A coin operated electricity meter takes £1 and £2 coins, and there is a coin operated launderette a short walk from the apartment for the use of Sandbay visitors. Sunset Beach will accept one well behaved dog.
Sunset Beach is approached via a narrow private driveway leading to the shared parking area where there is one allocated parking space for number 10. If needed, an additional parking space can be arranged at an extra cost of £10. Please note that due to an archway the parking area is limited to the height of 7ft 4ins and no wider than a standard car.
Perranporth is a bustling seaside resort on Cornwall's north coast with a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, and access to some of the best coastline in the country. There is also an excellent 18-hole golf course, horse riding, gliding, surfing and kite-surfing, tennis, bowling, a boating lake and children's playpark all on the doorstep. The cathedral city of Truro is nine miles away as is Newquay with its beautiful beaches, and other places of interest such as Padstow, Falmouth ad St Ives are within an easy half hour drive.
