“Our favorite Cornish retreat”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Cornwall is one of our favorite places and the Holiday Villa is our first choice for a family holiday with the dog. We have now visited 2 years running and absolutely love the beach and location of the holiday Villa. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and made our stay very comfortable. The location is perfect for the beach which is beautiful and interesting with its large dunes and dramatic cliffs. The surfing is excellent and there is a the assurance of a life-guarding service for the less experienced. The area is very popular with families and If the kids don’t want to go in the sea there are a huge amount of dunes to slide down on boards of any description and also a small river on the beach for young ones to play in with more safety. We walked to the adjoining beaches of Perranporth and Poly Joke as well as the fun park above Holywell and didn’t need a car during our stay. The Treguth Inn is 2 minutes walk and has good food and excellent beer and is also dog friendly.

The villa is spacious, clean and comfortable and feels like a home from home. The wi-fi is excellent and there is plenty to occupy the kids from books and games to TV and table football. Should the weather not be in your favor there is space to spread out and relax indoors without getting in each others way. Relaxing on the balcony overlooking the beach and sunset instantly de-stresses and the abundant birdsong makes cities seem very far away. There is off street parking right next to the property and the supermarkets in Newquay are 10 minutes away.

Overall the Holiday Villa offers great location for family, surf and dog based holidays with good value and one of the best beaches in the country.

Spent a week here in May 2017. Large lounge and nice upstairs balcony with view of the beach. Friendly and helpful owners live next door. Pet friendly. Lots of games ,Wii, Dvds etching for kids on rainy days.
Lovely sandy and spacious beach 2 minute walk away. 2 nearby pubs. We preferred the Tregulth - it had more atmosphere and better food.
Would recommend and have already booked another week next year.

“Lovely accommodation and lovely hosts!”

This was our second stay in The Holiday Villa and, just like our previous visit, everything was perfect. We were made very welcome by our hosts. Flowers and wine, on arrival, along with some fresh eggs from their chickens!

The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. It is like a home from home. It has everything you might need to make your stay comfortable. There is free Wifi, lots of books, DVDs, tapes, some great LP to take you back in time, a lovely widescreen TV and Sky TV. The lounge is lovely with two three-seater settees, dining table and chairs. There is a cupboard packed full of children's games and toys! Also on the ground floor, off the lounge, is a large master bedroom with a nice big bed and en-suite bathroom. Very comfortable.

The kitchen had everything you might need, cooker, toaster, slow cooker, microwave, plenty of utensils, cutlery, crockery.

Upstairs was a further double bed and two bunks in a huge room which would be just the job for children on a rainy day! Playstation, TV, books, board games, video games, PC. The views from the upstairs room were just great and there is verandah where you can set and relax. You could see over to the beach. All bedding is provided and also tea towels and towels.

Everything was done to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Dave and Liz, our hosts, were so very friendly and accommodating. You only have to ask if you need anything and they will do their best to help. We had a lovely time. We will be returning to this lovely villa.

This is our first choice for accommodation in Cornwall. We've just spent our 4th consecutive vacation here. The owners Dave & Liz are very welcoming and pull out all the stops to make you feel at home. The Villa is always spotlessly clean and the facilities are just what we need. The location is within easy reach of the wonderful beach and two local pubs. We would thoroughly recommend staying at the Villa, you will not be disappointed.

“Wonderful Accommodation, people and location. Going back again year after year”

I adore this place. My family have been holidaying in Holywell Bay for 9 years, the last 7 years staying here at the Holiday Villa, and we are coming back again next year. My kids are now ages 18 and 11, and they still adore it here, and we would not want to stay anywhere else. The Villa is extremely well equipped, and if what you want isn't there (unlikely !) Liz and Dave, the extremely friendly and lovely owners are sure to be able to provide you with it. The Villa is very spacious, and comfortable and well looked after. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to anyone.

We love it so much, we are going back for our 9th stay in this wonderful accommodation next year.
