A Message from the owner
This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the coast, sitting on the deck or if cooler, behind the patio doors. After busy days on the beach, walking the South West Coast path, or exploring further afield there is nowhere better than watching amazing sunsets over St. Ives from the balcony of this coastal retreat. I hope you have an enjoyable stay. The owner

Stayed in C23 Wilmar. Absolutely loved it. It was very clean, beds were comfortable. The view was amazing and the changing skies were breath taking. The beach was so lovely and very close. Never used the car all week hence a flat battery when we went to leave and was saved by a lovely family staying on site who got us going and so grateful to them. Would love to stay here again.

Very Nice Chalet
I enjoyed my stay in this chalet. My daughter and her friend stayed also. There double bedroom was fine. My room had been converted to a double by putting a queen size bed into it. This proved very tight fit with very little space for any clothes storage. We were all on the smaller side of people. So the space could work for us. The Chalet was well equipped and i would stay there again. Its position made it easy to walk down into the town of Hayle and a good view across the bay to St Ives.

C23 on the Riviere Towans at Hayle, the property has easy access to the beach / south west coastal path. Following the path to the left takes you into the town in around 15 minutes and the walk is complemented by great scenery. The property itself is of a good size for a family of 4, with 2 bed rooms and bathroom, well equipped kitchen with dining area and raised above the kitchen area is a lounge with fantastic views of Carbis bay around to St Ives. Outside is a small decked patio where you can enjoy the temperate climate and wonderful views. The only down side to this property was no sofa to relax on at night. Parking is outside the property on a small grassed area or if you choose there is a tarmac area for parking in front.
