The Property

Sandy Toes is a ground floor apartment offering jackpot views across the beach and blue bay of Porthtowan. To the front, the open plan living, dining and kitchen space offers a relaxing ambiance in nautical blues and fresh whites with coastal inspired artwork to evoke Cornwall’s natural playground. The kitchen is modern in style with all you could need including sea views making the cooking preparations a pleasure. Holiday conversation flows over supper at the dining table and the tranquil living room ensures comfort, rest and all important time out. A central hallway leads to 2 beautiful bedrooms, an indulgent king bedded room with ensuite bathroom and further twin. Map out your days of exploration and return to the luxury and comfort of Sandy Toes. 

The apartment was superb and had everything we needed including excellent views. 

Lead from the living space and step out onto a balcony high above the beach. To the side of the apartment a generous gravel courtyard offers a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by from early morning surfers to evening beach walkers. The outside dining table welcomes al fresco dining with relaxed sofas just perfect for a lazy afternoon with a good book. Private beach access leads directly down to the shores of Porthtowan Beach for ‘sandy toes’ in just a minute. Porthtowan is a characterful North Cornwall village with welcoming local ambiance. Enjoy a delicious supper or sunset sundowner at the Blue Bar or wander along the beach with ice cream in hand. A children’s playground has been recently updated. The nearby town of St Agnes has plenty of places to eat out including local pub grub, fine Cornish bistro fare to wonderful seafood. The cosmopolitan harbour town of St Ives is well worth a day trip, boat trips around the bay and a tempting collection of galleries and shops will keep the holiday party entertained. From this central base you are well placed to explore West Cornwall and contrast of scenery from coast to coast.

Sandy Toes is as perfect for couples as for parties of 4 looking for a luxury base in all seasons be it storm watching weekends or sunny summer stays.

I have rated just about everything excellent. Minor point-no pen in property to fill out guest book and tell others and owners how wonderful it is! I usually have one in my bag but didn't on this occasion so left no comments. On this note, I would be grateful if you would let the owners know what a beautiful, tasteful, comfortable property they have which we enjoyed to the max and took great care of. Thanks again for the great service. We had a memorable week.

Sharon Mason

On arriving at Sandy Toes we were blown away as soon as we stepped through the door. It was clean, bright and a very welcoming place. The view from the balcony and bedrooms was absolutely stunning: beach and sea just beautiful! There was complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits, etc. and even some dishwasher tabs. Everything had been thought of!

Cara Aldous

Excellent Property. Very helpful, polite and friendly staff at Cornish Gems. I have rented from them in the last two years, have given my family and I such great memories to bring back from our wonderful stays in beautiful Cornwall. Thankyou to all at Cornish Gems and see you again next time.
