Fabulous property, well worth the money in a fab location

Jun 2019

Lovely house in a great location, very convenient for beaches, shops, the coast path and art galleries too.

Apr 2019

Another lovely holiday in St Ives... The property was exactly as described and just perfect for us....thank you!

Apr 2019

We stayed there over Christmas and it was wonderful. Cosy and warm and we were surprised to find a Christmas tree up when we arrived and the kitchen well equipped so no problems cooking a full roast turkey dinner. On Christmas Eve the Cornish Carol singers sang outside the cottage - it really was a lovely place to spend Christmas. The stairs are numerous and quite steep - but were a good excuse for an extra spoonful of brandy butter!

Jan 2019

Lovely central St Ives cottage within two minutes walk of beaches and ideal for families. Lots of stairs and cluttered decoration but lovely all the same and we would be happy to stay there again.

Sep 2017

Lovely little cottage very close to Porthgwidden beach - perfect for sunny days but in easy reach of the rest of the town.

May 2017

Excellent quite location idea position for all beaches and the town

Mar 2017

It has all that you might need. The proximity to the beach (for those who want it) is excellent.

It's but a short walk to town with everything you could want. Great pubs and restaurants.

The internal stairs are a bit steep (unavoidably) but my 82 year old mother-in-law has coped well for two years here.

I recommend it to you.

Sep 2016

We felt right at home a soon as we arrived. Lovely location.

Jul 2016
