We would highly recommend Beach Retreat- so close to all beaches and harbour, light, spacious and with an outdoor space that we used a lot! We had an amazing family holiday and hope to stay at cottage again!

Wonderful cottage in a fabulous area of Downalong. Perfect for dog owners, or anyone who loves to be near beaches, shops and restaurants.

July 2016

We are in love with Beach Retreat. We honestly couldn't look for anything more from a holiday cottage in St Ives than what this had to offer. Fabulous location, stunning decor and clearly an exceptional housekeeper because everything was immaculate. Every second of our stay was perfect, thank you for a wonderful week, we are so sad to be leaving!

February 2016

Lovely cottage, very well presented in a great location. Aspects were happy to ask owner for a special request & dealt quickly with one minor problem that we had. We've had a great holiday, thank you very much.
