This large detached house is located in the village of Crantock close to Crantock Beach and can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

Kareena is in the most outstanding location, positioned at the end of Green Lane with an amazing view to the dunes, Crantock Beach and the sea beyond. If watching the sun set from your sofa is your dream - this is the house for you. With four bedrooms and sleeping up to eight, Kareena is ideal for large parties such as two families or four couples.

There is enough room to have privacy from each other but you are also able to share a fantastic living area (with the view!) opening onto a slate terrace, where everyone can come together. Step inside the property and you'll be welcomed by a lovely, light and homely living space/dining area, which includes a sitting area, woodburner and oak flooring throughout. Downstairs guests will also have access to a well-equipped, modern kitchen that boasts stunning views, a wet room with shower area and a separate laundry/utility room.

The property also boasts four beautifully presented and spacious bedrooms, three of which have unrivalled sea views. Kareena will appeal to those who like to be within a close walking distance from Crantock village's facilities, as well as being just a short drive from all of Cornwall's sporting, leisure and other attractions. Crantock Beach is also just a two minute walk from the house, making it an excellent spot for surfers and beach lovers.

For less mobile guests, Kareena has very easy access from the large drive area and there is a cloakroom with walk in shower on the ground floor. However all the bedrooms are upstairs . Outside the property is a garden area that includes two slate terraces and a lawn that surrounds the house.

There is also a hot shower available outside the property for when you return from the beach. Please note that the garden is not enclosed.


Out of this world! Modern, clean, spacious - a total joy to live in (I want to stay here and not go back to grotty Bristol). Whoever designed this house is a genius. It was perfect for two children, 9 and 11, two burnt-out parents and two octogenarians who just sat and looked at the view and occasionally spotted grandchildren playing hide and seek in the dunes. Lots of walks which you can adapt for needs of all. Bath and showers needs 6 stars - boiler room looks like something out of science fiction (ground source heat pumps and solar). First UK house I?ve stayed in with plumbing that works! Well done Kareena, we love you!

Expectations exceeded
Kareena exceeded our expectations. Inside and out, the house is clean and ordered. The spaces are generous, the furnishings and fittings are high-quality, understated and modern, and the location is perfect for the beach and pub. We were treated to some stunning Atlantic sunsets framed by the wide triple-glazed french windows in the living-room. In addition to the above some nice touches were: the scones and clotted cream left there for us, the egyptian cotton sheets, the glass box shower cubicles, the extra-long bath, the comprehensive and articulate information file, Access to the village and the beach is easy and the walk down the path to the dunes and beach was a favourite. Crantock beach is wonderful for adults and kids alike - rock pools, caves, endless sand, great surfing, and very well looked after by the RNLI lifeguards with their dune buggies, pickups and RIBs. We have stayed in many rented houses in the UK and abroad, and Kareena was one of the best.

Beach House
Eight of us, including a one year old toddler, stayed here for a week in June. The house is peaceful with just the roar of the sea to break the quiet. As others have said it is well located for both the village and beach, however, be prepared for a very steep walk up the sand dunes on your return! This was quite tough with a couple of surf boards and toddler! There is a surfboard hire man on the beach with wet suits at £11 for 3 days and I think the surfboards were around £25. The lifeguards are extremely good, giving constant information on where to surf, swim, etc. While it specifies on the website that there is enough room on the drive for 3 cars, we easily parked 4 large cars and it was a bonus that we were able to check in well before 4 o'clock. The house itself is well laid out and extremely well equipped. I would say due to the hard floors, however, it can be a little noisy if people don't close doors quietly etc. The towels were fluffy and large, the pantry/larder was useful, bedding was comfy, showers were extremely efficient, there were games and jigsaws for wet days. There is a charcoal BBQ and table and chairs to use outside on sunnier days! There is a good drying room which seemed more efficient than the tumbledryer. Mobile phone signal wasn't brilliant and the internet was weak at times, which is possibly a good thing for relaxation! The track from the road down to the house is a bit rickety but level. All in all, a lovely well thought out cared for holiday home.

Wonderful house to stay in!
this was our second time at Kareena and we love this house, the outlook to the dunes and sea. It has been built to the highest standard of comfort. Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent in every way
Crantock is one of the best and yet most unspoiled beaches in this part of the world. The property Kareena is perfectly located just behind the sand dunes with unspoiled views and easy access to this vast and dramatic beach. The house itself is a simple, modern building thats finished to a high standard throughout; underfloor heating, immaculate bathrooms and panoramic windows that draw the views in and help make this memorable place to stay whatever the weather.
