About this listing
'Santosha' (sleeps 2 ) is in close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches of Cornwall. Marazion is a 3 minute drive (20 minute walk) away. St Ives only 20 minute drive. The space is clean, contemporary, light and airy. Note : During the peak season June - September we only take bookings for 5 nights plus, unless there is a shorter gap between bookings. Then we are happy to take shorter bookings.
Santosha is a stylish piedaterre for couples wishing to be within close proximity to a stunning coastline. Characterised by a look that is cheerful, light and airy; the pristine white decor and pale blonde wood finishes punctuated with splashes of bold primary colours create a contemporary and refreshing atmosphere. Situated in a quiet residential area in the village of Perran Downs, at Cornwall's narrowest point which is a stretch of just 6 miles, a five minute drive is all that distances guests from the south coast and the white sandy beaches at Perranuthnoe, Praa Sands and Marazion while a 20 minute drive will reveal the contrasts of the dramatic north coast. A central location for touring the far west and visiting the landmark attractions of St Michaels Mount, Land's End and The Minack Theatre and a convenient location for coastal and countryside pursuits with a 9 hole coastal golf course, surf school and scenic coastal footpath within close reach. The ancient market town of Penzance is 4 miles away and never short of interest with its bustling harbour, shops of all kinds, art galleries, fine restaurants and ornamental gardens. The uncluttered open plan interior is generously proportioned for two and there is the added benefit of a sheltered garden with patio furniture. The living room is comfortably arranged with a kitchen/dining area whilst upstairs is a lovely bedroom set into the eaves which can be presented as a double with a king size bed or a twin, by prior request. Semi-detached to the owners' residence yet not overlooked, once inside it is private and an ideal winter retreat with full gas central heating. A popular pub serving delicious homemade food and locally brewed ales and a convenience store are within a 10 minute walk and there is off road parking for one car.
Guests have access to parking and the whole separate house, with their own facilities.
Interaction with guests
We allow guests to enjoy their break at Santosha in peace. However, we are always happy to give advice on the area etc.
Other things to note
During the peak weeks, so from May through until September, we tend to only rent Santosha out for a minimum of 5 nights. It is advertised as a sleep 2, however we are more than happy to accommodate up to 4 guests, as there is a lovely sofa bed. There is an extra charge for each adult, this will be discussed when receiving your enquiry. Also, Santosha is a self catering apartment, so we don't provide breakfast.
Santosha also has a very comfortable sofa bed. We are happy to accept 4 guests at a small nightly fee for each extra adult. Please leave it as you find it, and make yourself at home.

I am a mother and yoga teacher (@karliyoga) who loves living in Cornwall with my 2 son's and my partner (their dad) Sam, who is from Zurich in Switzerland. Sam and I met in South Africa 15 years ago, and enjoyed sky diving as a hobby together! Things soon changed once we became parents! Sam is a keen surfer, and we all try to head out to the beaches as much as possible. We love living here because of the laid back lifestyle and all the gorgeous beaches we are very close to ; Perranuthnoe, Praa Sands and Marazion. We enjoy travel, adventure and the outdoors. I also enjoy the occasional night out dancing :)
