Really lovely cottage, excellent location. Well equipped.

3 weeks ago

Perfect cottage in the centre of St Ives , loved our stay here and would definitely use again. Well equipped and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Just a 2 min walk to our favourite restaurants and pubs and the beaches but still found it to be very quiet place to stay. Highly recommended.

Harbour View Cottage is in a wonderful location yet was very quiet in the evenings. The equipment and furnishings are of a high standard and the beds were super comfy. Will definitely return.

Aug 2020

Fantastic location, yards from the harbour in one direction then to Porthmeor beach in the other. Cottage is small downstairs but perfectly adequate, plenty of space upstairs. Cottage has beach chairs, windbreaks and body boards, we didn't need these during storm Dennis! Even though this cottage is located directly in the centre it was surprisingly quiet. We would have no hesitation in returning.

Feb 2020

The harbour view cottage was very central and perfectly located.

Sep 2019

A super property ideally located close to the centre....we enjoyed a lovely week here.

Sep 2019

Amazing location, clean and well equipped. Lots of nice touches like the use of beach equipment available for guests and dvd collection. Beautifully decorated throughout, close to everything and reasonably quiet.

Aug 2019

Fantastic cottage in an ideal location. One minute walk to Porthmeor or the harbour front. More than enough room for 4 adults. Everything was clean and washer/dryer handy. And the windbreaks useful. Would happily stay again.

Jul 2019

Fantastic cottage, so well equipped. Very well looked after and a pleasure to stay. Brilliant location So pleased and will book again

Jul 2019

The location is what Harbour View Cottage has really got going for it - a couple of minutes in one direction is the harbour and main shopping street while a couple of minutes in the other is the magnificent Porthmeor beach. The smart TV proved too smart for us but this was quickly sorted by the housekeeper. Overall a homely base for a relaxing holiday.

Jul 2019

Second year we have stayed here, it is an ideal location for town centre and Porthmeor beach. Everywhere is within easy walking distance. The cottage is nicely presented and comfortable. Well equipped with little extras like body boards, wind breaks and beach games as well as board games for the house. Ample kitchen equipment if cooking, but restaurants so good in St Ives we tend to eat out.

Jun 2019

Absolutely fantastic stay in harbour view cottage. This is the second time we have stayed on this property. It was made even better by the fact the windows and blinds had been replaced on the top floor to make our stay even more comfortable. It’s fabulous that in this cottage there are chairs and windbreaks to take on the beach. Also the body boards and games for the beach come in handy. Everything you need for St Ives is provided on this cottage! We would have come back next year but we have another person coming with us so I’m afraid we have had to get a cottage with another bedroom which is a shame as the location is great. It’s situated in the perfect spot but it’s still nice and quiet at night!

Jun 2019

We loved our week at Harbour View. The cottage was comfortable, very cosy and really well equipped. It was fabulously located for all that St Ives has to offer. We will definitely revisit.

Apr 2019

Lovely house and location we would stay again

Mar 2019

Harbour View cottage is exactly as described and what is required for a perfect holiday : excellent location, central but not noisy, very well equipped with all modern facilities, spotlessly clean, light, airy and comfortable. Definately winner for best in class !

Mar 2019

This was our second year at Harbour View and we will definitely be returning. It is so well appointed in a very quiet street and has everything that makes a holiday special. Careful thought has been given to the provision of music, games and water sports. Aspects area great company, all the staff are very friendly and professional.

Sep 2018

Very thoughtfully kitted out, even had body boards & an IT tablet. Contender for best in class. Very good & quiet location yet seconds away from the bustle of Fore street & 1.5 minutes walk from standing on the sands of porthmeor beach at a steady walking pace. Equidistant from the Island & Barnoon car parks. What’s not to like? Hope to see you next year!

Aug 2018

Absolutely fantastic cottage which is situated right in the heart of the bustling busy st Ives town. Even though we were in the heart of St Ives it was so quiet at night. The cottage was well equipped with everything you needed for a fantastic stay, especially loved all the things needed for the beach which included body boards and beach games. Would definitely recommend this cottage. We have already booked again for next year!!

Jun 2018

The cottage is ideally situated in a very quiet cobbled street. We have stayed in several St Ives properties over the years, some of which were very noisy at night. Harbour View is perfect, we had a very restful, enjoyable holiday there and didn't want to come home!

Oct 2017

Comfortable well equipped cottage, excellently positioned for beaches, shops and restaurants.

Aug 2017

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location!
