Kareena, which must be the most talked about house in Crantock, is now available for booking for 2015 and beyond.
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.
Kareena is ideal for large parties such as two families or four couples, as 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.
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 .
Why the owner loves Kareena:
As children we spent many of our holidays here, in the original Kareena, and have now, been coming to Crantock for over 60 years. After inheriting Kareena following our father’s death we four sisters decided to rebuild the house for modern family use and have tried to keep the spirit of the original house and where we can, have incorporated some of the original fittings. We love the view, obviously, and the accessibility to the beach. We remember as children running down to the sea and coming back to dry off as it was easier than taking towels! We feel so at home here and have tried to create a home for living in and enjoying family time, together.
Access: Gravel drive leading onto a slate terrace, threshold into the hallway. All level on the ground floor – oak flooring throughout. Wide oak doors are throughout the house. Oak staircase with oak handrail. From the Living Room, there are sliding patio doors to the slate terrace.
