Immerse yourself in the surf and sand culture of Holywell Bay and check-in to Hale Kahakai (previously named Halekulani), a modern day beach house with strong eco-credentials, just waiting for friends and family to enjoy. This newly created split level holiday home has been flawlessly created to offer a luxury haven for up to 8 guests. Choose from 4 beautiful bedrooms, 2 contemporary bathrooms and relax in the open plan living, dining and kitchen space set across the ground floor and leading into the generous private garden. Geographically, Hale Kahakai is perfectly positioned in the county offering direct beach access to Holywell Bay and the north Cornwall coastline, including the stunning beaches and Cornish hot spots including Padstow, Watergate Bay, St Ives, Porthtowan and Newquay's Fistral Beach. 

Our second time at this beautiful house, we LOVE it here. We have been coming to Holywell bay for many years and this house is the perfect upgrade now as our children are a little older and in need of a secure garden.

Step Inside

Aptly named, Hale Kahakai (which translates as beach house in Hawaiian) is no ordinary holiday home. Nestled in the sand dunes, The Rocks is a cool collection of newly built art deco inspired homes designed for the highlife of Cornwall. Arrive into the spacious hallway and lead through to the wonderfully light filled open plan layout of the kitchen, dining space and living area. Worthy of any interior magazine feature, think contemporary artwork, indulgent velvet sofas, inspired architecture and a beautiful palette of bold hues blended with subtle shades. Relax in the living space as a group at the end of the day or spend a little quiet time to yourself whilst the others hit the beach. The dining area is no less considered with wooden table and chairs and welcomes stay at home suppers and lazy breakfasts, or perhaps a celebratory dinner is part of the plans? The kitchen will be the envy of any budding chef and has been thoughtfully kitted out with all you could need. Gather around the breakfast bar and all get stuck in with the preparations over lots of laughs and good conversation. A practical utility area will house all of your beach and coastal gear. A separate snug come office area is located just off the hallway and offers a welcome break-out space for children to play games or watch a film or, for those that may need to keep in touch with work life, the desk can become a makeshift office. A convenient cloakroom with WC completes the ground floor. Climb the stairs to the first floor and choose from three beautiful bedrooms sharing an indulgent family bathroom. The master ensuite bedroom is located on the second floor providing an oasis of serenity dressed in fresh whites. Gaze out from your private balcony to the sand dunes and seascapes. 

On Your Doorstep

Hale Kahakai offers a very generous outside space where games are played and holiday life flips between the beach and your holiday haven. Full height glass doors slide back from the living space, and kitchen area to create an outside inside ambiance. A large outside dining table encourages al fresco dining from sun up to sun down. The garden is completely enclosed creating a safe space for children and dogs to play safely on the large lawn and stone terraces. Follow the sun throughout the day and capture those summer sunsets that light the sky as only the Cornish sunsets can. The golden sand dunes and beach at Holywell Bay become an extension to your play area, simply wander from your holiday door down to the shoreline in moments. Holywell Bay has to be one of Cornwall's most scenic beaches and was often the backdrop to BBC's Poldark. Local surfers hit the waves, children leap and jump through the dunes and there is always a quiet spot to set up camp and live those halcyon bucket and spade days. The Treguth Inn is a charming 13C thatched inn welcoming locals and visitors to enjoy pub grub and local ales. If walking is on the agenda then the South West Coastal path is within easy reach leading up and over the headlands towards Polly Joke and Crantock Bay. The surfing mecca of Newquay really offers something for everyone from delicious seafood on the harbour to Rick Steins fish and chips overlooking the rolling surf at Fistral Beach. Heading further west, the iconic coastal town of St Ives is well worth a visit taking in the the beaches of Porthtowan and Carbis Bay en route. 

Hale Kahakai comes highly recommended whatever the season, whatever the occasion. An extra special holiday home from which to explore the beautiful north Cornish coastline.
