Ocean Swell is a lovely chalet, which is very well equipped. The view to the beach is beautiful and having a balcony with a table and chairs is a real bonus. Kingsize bed was very comfy and bedding and linen provision is really helpful.

A really great place with pretty much everything you need. Was clean and tidy and the host seemed helpful even though I never needed anything. Towels and linens provided along with blankets which was nice. Location is great and even though there were other cabins it still felt private and peaceful. Nice view of the sea. Would definitely recommend. Only downside was finding the cabin which was a bit difficult because of how they are arranged but apart from that it was fine.

Great location, great view of the sea from the new wooden terrace, fantastic sunsets. Very tasteful furnishings and complete equipment. Appropriately large for four people, more ambitious for more. A little storage space in the first bedroom.
Tolle Lage, super Ausblick von der neuen Holzterasse aufs Meer, traumhafte Sonnenuntergänge. Sehr geschmackvolle Einrichtung & vollständige Ausstattung. Passend groß für vier Personen, für mehr eher ambitioniert. Etwas wenig Stauraum im ersten Schlafraum.

Very pleased with our stay, the best sea view ever, perfect balcony, close to the beach 4 min to walk, very important for pregnant women and 5 year old child, much staff to carry to the beach wasn't a problem. Amazing communication with the host. Accommodation had all we needed. Location is perfect, we were able to visit many places within max 20 min drive. All area very quite, didn't heard any neighbours, very welcome community. Playground for kids also was important for us. Bluff pub within 3 min to walk serving amazing food also have a playground kids are busy and you able have a romantic moment to meet the sunset. Room N 1 need some rails for clothes as no space for it at all and one couple was disappointed. For 4 adults and 2 children wasn't enough space,have to move big table from outside to be able to fit all of us at the table. All this little bits didn't ruined our stay and all holiday in general. Very happy.

“If you are after a place close to the beach then this is perfect, cool little place that sleeps 6 with everything you need in it, proper beach side place with a pub between you and the beach, perfect”

A unique place of peace and natural beauty. The wonderful view, which stretches from the estuary at Hayle to Godrevy Lighthouse, includes 3 miles of golden sands. It is approx. five minutes walk through the dunes to the beach. The bungalow has free parking, but it is not allocated. The short walk from it to the sea takes you through interesting and varied styles of property. Hayle beach extends three miles from Godrevy Lighthouse to the Hayle Estuary. It has its own café, pub, toilets, shop and is life-guarded during the main season. There are many quaint villages, seaside towns, harbours and tourist attractions within easy driving distance, plus no end of spectacular scenery. The Cornish coastal path can be found on the edge of the site. We have had many happy holidays in Ocean Swell.

This was our third time at Riviera Towans. Probably the best one as we were lucky with the weather. We stayed in D50 Ocean Swell. Lovely chalet looking over the sea to St Ives. 3 bedrooms, two with bunks, good shower, 2 comfy sofas and a well stocked kitchen including a dish washer. As other reviews have said, it's a few minutes walk to the lovely long sandy beach. We walked along it one day for two and a half hours, paddling in the pools and picking up shells. Not far from Penzance and St Ives. Loads of supermarkets close by including Lidl, Aldi and the Co-op. Also Warrens bakery. Best Cornish pasties around. If you don't fancy cooking there is a Brewers Fayre nearby or the Bluff Inn which is near the beach. That has an amusement arcade in it. Take a visit to St Michael's Mount in Marizion. Get to it either by boat if the tides' in, or walk along the causeway. Lots of steep steps and climbing involved, so not suitable for people that don't walk well. A great day out. Looking forward to returning next year.
