Great location, very homely and with a sea view too!!

Ideally located, well equipped, contemporary cottage.

A sweet cottage with limited space but lovely location for beaches and town.

Lovely cottage in a great position to the harbour and front, It is a typical fisherman's cottage so the entrance is a bit small and so is the bathroom but it is very well equipped and very comfy and cosy.

Lively location, close to bars and a minute from the harbour. Lovely views, perfect for a couple. No washer or hoover, which can be problematic with children and pets. No where to dry towels, etc. Nicely decorated and lovely main bedroom.

Lovely accommodation in an excellent location (literally 1 minute walk down to the harbour). All rooms were very clean and kitchen had plenty of glasses, cups, plates etc.

Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family.

Excellent cottage wonderful location will definitely book again

Happy for any of my earlier comments to be posted.

Lovely..well appointed small cottage that allows dogs. We had a great week .. would recommend.

Comfortable cottage conveniently located for town and beaches, whilst nicely tucked away. Would stay again.

Hopefully the property owner will rectify the approach!!

Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry to read that the approach to the property was covered in sand and weeds. Being located moments from the beach, this build up can happen very quickly but we will certainly request that the owner has something in place to have the area weeded regularly, to avoid any troubles when guests are accessing the property. We hope you had a wonderful holiday and that we will see you back soon. Lucy, Customer Services

We had a lovely stay in this property. It's situated in a nice quiet area of St Ives, despite being so close to everything! You can see Smeatons Pier in the distance from the living room and are a short walk from the Harbour front and both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches. We stayed with our dog who loved her first visit to St Ives. She settled well in this property and we would certainly look at booking this again.

Lovely cottage with in great location, with all modern facility's.

A very memorable experience for all the wrong reasons. If you're over 5' 8" be prepared to crouch through the front door and the upstairs bedroom

We are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your chosen property. A large number of properties within the heart of St Ives are traditional fishermans cottages. They are packed full of character inside and out, but often a little smaller, sloped or lower ceiling heights and layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, so it is definitely an important consideration when booking a property like this. We always try to be as open and honest as possible, and try to give an accurate representation of properties within our photos, so hope that we have achieved that in this case, but we will continue to monitor feedback. We hope that you still enjoyed everything that St Ives had to offer despite your disappointment with these areas. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Services
