We had a wonderful stay at this lovely chalet which boasts beautiful views of St Ives Bay. The chalet is in a perfect location within close proximity of Hayle, an easy walk down to the beach and close to the children’s play areas on site. There is a lovely big area of grass in front of the chalet which can easily be accessed from the chalet’s big patio doors. The chalet was really clean and tidy when we arrived and is well equipped with furniture well thought out along with nice touches of DVD’s, books and games available for guests to use. There was 5 of us staying, along with family locally visiting, so quite a few people in the chalet at times however there was plenty of space for everyone to sit and catch-up with the open plan layout working really well for this. The chairs outside on the patio were really comfortable – perfect to sit on and soak up the last of the days sun. Looking forward to coming back!

Just think furniture in lounge is a bit dated and not that comfortable other than that the bungalow was really nice and good views . It was our 2nd time to stay in this bungalow and be back next year all goes well .

We had such an incredible place at this chalet- the location, with wonderful, endlessly changing seaview, is amazing. The park itself is really spacious and feels like it is in the wild of the dunes. The park it sits in is quite big but it feels really peaceful and not at all busy. The bay is extraordinary, and there is also a lovely inlet/estuary into Hayle, where we spent a couple of days crabbing. We did some day trips- Godrevy. Marazion, Penzance but each time came back to the chalet feeling like we had the best possible place to stay, with the best possible beach. We had some lovely evenings too, in variable weather, with hot chocolate, playing cards, feeling really cozy. Really recommend it for a very very relaxing holiday.

Our 2nd year at toms and booking a 3rd. We stayed in F58 Libilmo. Lovely property with huge patio doors. Perfect for family with youngsters as there's plenty of flat space to play outside. The accommodation was great. Clean, homely and had everything you need. My only complaint was that it sleeps 6 (there were 6 of us) but only has a ridiculously small 2 seater sofa and 2 chairs yet 8 wooden stools!!!! Not ideal for relaxing on after a long day walking. Also the water pressure was dreadful so showering 4 kids daily was a nightmare. Those things aside the chalet was great! Bright and cheery. Would recommend but take a beanbag or something with you
