What our clients think of The Sanctuary

Sam - August 2019
Amazing location in the centre of Newquay and walking distance to shops, bars, beaches and all the main attractions. Great free parking too. The house was sparkling clean and some great touches by the hosts.


Emma - July 2019
The Sanctuary was such a lovely place to stay. I’ve been going to Newquay yearly for the past 8years and this was the best stay yet and the sanctuary and it’s lovely host played a big part of it. Great hosts, great location and great facilities.


Phillippa - July 2019
Great place to stay right in the heart of the old town (without the noise). Very convenient and great hosts!


Sonal - June 2019
Wonderful stay at the Sanctuary with my family and 10 month old daughter. Natalie was a great host and ensured we had everything we needed. Natalie kindly provided a cot, and recommended some local gems. The scones were a lovely touch too. The Sanctuary is in a great location, across the road from sainsburys and the beach.


Isabelle - June 2019
The Sanctuary was perfect for our stay. It was a 10 minute walk to Fistral beach and located in the centre of town. Natalie made everything so easy, very quick responses and the house had everything we needed. We will definitely be booking again soon!


Robert - June 2019
Really great place to stay, near the town but tucked away with parking. Great to have 2 bathrooms, Internet access helpful too. Natalie was really great too at getting back to us if we asked anything and always had good suggestions of places to eat or whatever, would definitely recommend staying here.


Deena - June 2019
Sparkling clean house/ close to beach and local amenities. Great host and very quick response.


Bex - May 2019
The Sanctuary couldn’t have been more perfect for our stay. This was my first experience using Airbnb and I couldn’t fault how excellent the experience was with Natalie, clear check in instructions and excellent communication from the minute we booked. The house itself is in the perfect location, so close to everything it’s almost too easy! A bonus as well was also how surprisingly quiet it was despite being a stones throw from the main Street. Inside the property is well laid out, perfectly clean and has everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is well set up – so much so we cooked a roast dinner one evening! There were some lovely thoughtful touches too which meant a coffee straight away on arrival which was welcomed. Cannot recommend this place highly enough, we will certainly be back!


Leanne - April 2019
You cannot get a better location for your trip to Newquay! No need to use our car all weekend- the beaches, shops and bars all within a 2 min walk. Beautiful house decorated with a very homely feel. Was amazing to come in to find some milk in the fridge and some proper cornish cream to go on some scones! Thankyou for being a great host Natalie we will most certainly be back again.


Satendra - April 2019
Its a very nice house for family of 2 couple and kids. 3 bedrooms are very spacious and the entire house is sparkling clean. Location is perfect with everything just a few meters away. Loved our stay there.


Iain - January 2019
Natalie and James are very attentive and helpful. The breakfast welcome goods were a pleasant surprise. The car parking so close to the town centre is a big bonus ,because parking in Newquay can be a nuisance. We have relatives who live nearby,and even they have difficulty.


Lucy - January 2019
Great location Nice extra touches such as milk & orange juice in fridge, tea & coffee, chocolate croissants ready for us


Diarna - November 2018

Heidi - October 2018

The Sanctuary was great for what 4 of us needed for a few days away. Amazing location, we didn’t need to use our car once. Clean & spacious, we had a fab stay and communication was great!

Dee - September 2018

The Sanctuary is an absolute gem of a place to stay in Newquay. Immaculately clean, warm and cozy if it’s a bit wet and chilly, but with nice, outside spaces should the sun be shining. Superb location, good parking, great facilities. Had a fabulous stay, the hosts are lovely people who go the extra mile to ensure you have everything you need and more. Could not have asked for better. Would be sure to book again if returning to the area.

Katy - September 2018

The Sanctuary was perfect for our weekend in Newquay. Completely spotless and plenty of space for a group of 6. The location is perfect with easy walking distance to food, bars pubs and just a very short drive to Fistral beach where we were based for two days. Natalie was a fantastic host with plenty of tips for the area, as well as leaving some complimentary tea/milk/scones etc which was lovely. Easy 200m to Sainsbury’s which was perfect. Highly recommended!!

Samantha - September 2018

Perfect place to stay with easy access to beach and town. Great value for money. Recommend a stay.

Ieva - September 2018

Couldn’t wish for better location; house is located in the heart of Newquay (though road is very quiet 🙂 ) ; shops, bars, beach is only couple of minutes away. Free parking is great bonus. House itself is simple, clean and beautiful cottage. The hosts Natalie and James are amazing people who came and welcomed us on the arrival day, to make sure that we have all we need. Highly recommend this place.

Gemma - September 2018

Lovely house, clean and spacious. Fantastic location, right in town but still quiet. Plus car parking right outside house which is so useful. Would definitely recommend if visiting Newquay. Hosts are so friendly and helpful, communication quick and easy and just a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend!

Emma - September 2018

The Sanctuary is a superb holiday cottage, it has everything you need and more! It is so close to everything such as supermarkets, clubs, beaches, restaurants etc … We had an amazing stay and would high recommend!

Harry - August 2018

Thanks for being a great Host. We had an amazing time. The location was perfect and the house is even better than the pictures. 3 good sized double rooms, very tidy and perfect size for 6 adults. Natalie was very easy to get hold of and met us on arrival and departure. Thanks for a great week, would advise anyone thinking about staying here to do so!

Neil - August 2018

Great central spot, lovely house and lovely hosts who couldn’t do enough to help. Highly recommend The Sanctuary.

Emma - August 2018

Basic but spacious, clean and fairly priced accommodation is a convenient location. very nice, helpful hosts!

Gisele - August 2018

Fantastic place! House is comfortable, clean, close to city centre! Natalie is kind and replies all the messages quickly! My friends and I had a perfect stay in Newquay and we would definitely come back in this house again . Thank you Natalie! xx

John - August 2018

The Sanctuary is a fantastic three double bedroom house in the heart of Newquay. Natalie clearly takes pride in this holiday let. We were welcomed with opened arms and at the same time given our privacy. The kitchen was stocked with milk, juice, chocolate crossiants plus scones with cornish cream and jam, yum!!! The house is spot on. Three double beds, two shower rooms, two parking spaces and an outside decked area to chill in the evening. We saw the ISS pass overhead twice! The best thing about the Sanctuary is the location. Right slap bang in the centre on Newquay, 2 mind walk to Towan beach and 10 to Fistral. We had four awesome days surfing, one day coasteering and a day at the Eden project in our week away. There are several bakeries, a WH Smiths a cafe nero just around the corner for breakfast and plenty of restaurants (the Thai place is 200% recommended!) and bars for your evenings entertainment. Go, have fun and enjoy your stay at the sanctuary. Totally recommended!

Sheeva - July 2018

Beautiful home, lovely hosts and perfect location, we will be back very soon.

Gary - July 2018

The Santuary is in a very central location in Newquay meaning you can walk to the beaches as well as the shops and restaurants. The house is spacious and very clean and the hosts leave everything you need to start your break. This includes some delicious cream scones, which is a nice touch. Check in is very easy and you have parking available if you bring a car. Sainburys supermarket is only 2 minutes walk away if you need to get supplies. This is great as you don’t have to bring everything with you.

Mark - July 2018

Great place in a great location. Host very helpful

Tim - July 2018

The Sanctuary has everything you would like for a roomy house by the sea and so close to all the bustle of Newquay’s attractions but also nice and quiet! The rooms are lively with nice touches in each. Natalie and James have made a real effort to provide a homely and comfortable holiday rental. I would definitely recommend The Sanctuary.

Matthew - July 2018

Great stay. Right in the center of Newquay great house and good price . Excellent hosts, the place was well cleaned and stocked with complementary scones jam and cream.

Narita - June 2018

The accommodation was very neat, tidy and clean. Kitchen had all full sets of utensils and cutleries. WiFi was very good. The choice of having Netflix was great as we lounged in and watched movies after dinner. What I loved most about Natalie’s place was the location. The shops, the beach and the restaurants were really all in walking distance. The back door from the patio behind the kitchen also gives you a short-cut to Sainsbury’s. It was convenient as there was no need to take the car. Natalie & James also popped in to say Hello later on the day of our arrival which was really nice of them. They were very approachable and tended to our needs. The only small problem you might face is that, it can get a bit noisy outside during the late night. A lot of noise comes through the front facing bedroom from people walking about after a night out. But it’s something that’s out of everyone’s control. Despite that, I would come back again to stay here, and would recommend this accommodation because of it’s convenience.

Will - June 2018

A great place with a spectacular location near the nightlife and beaches.

Jenny - June 2018

The Sanctuary was a lovely place to stay. Really great location an an oasis of tranquility from bustling Newquay. Natalie was lovely and really helpful. I would highly recommend the Sanctuary. than you again x

Dominic - June 2018

Really nice place and in a great location

Mitchell - June 2018

The Sanctuary is a lovely place to stay. The location is great being in the centre of Newquay. We could park the vehicle at the property and walk to the beach or shops in minutes.

Richard - June 2018

Perfect house in a great location to make the most of all Newquay has to offer. Everything is literally on the doorstep but The Sanctuary is on a quiet side street. Natalie and James are the perfect hosts with great local knowledge and attention to detail. Really appreciated the cream tea and fresh flowers. If you like Newquay you’ll love The Sanctuary.

Tao - May 2018

The house is brilliant, we like everything here. The location is also good, Sainsbury’s and beaches are c lose to here. Each room is clean and warm, we can saw beautiful view ou tside the window. Natalie is very enthusiastic, she prepared breakfast and drink for us, and met us twice time for help. Highly recommended!
