A brilliant property in all respects for large families or groups. The kitchen table is a fabulous place for everyone to socialise after meals. Location is excellent as are the views from several rooms. Definitely a place to return to!

November 2018

This is the second time we have stayed at The Beach House & cannot fault this property - we love the location & the space for our ever growing family.

August 2018

The cottage is in a excellent position for families as it so near to the beaches and our grandchildren had a wonderful time. Convenient for all amenties.

August 2018

This location is perfect

July 2018

A lovely house in a beautiful location, very spacious & despite our large family, we did not feel that we were overcrowded. Would definitely love to revisit The Beach House.

June 2018

Excellent facilities and location ??

April 2018

Lovely house for mixed parties, we've now had two very happy holidays there. It's within walking distance of the Harbour, Porthmeor, The Island, pubs, restaurants, Tate - everything. Wish it was mine

September 2017

We would recommed the Beach House St Ives to a family. It was central and close to the harbour beach where the older children could play. Also a variety of restuarants and take-aways which meant very little cooking for the adults.Brilliant!!!

July 2017

Lovely house with perfect location in the centre of beautiful St Ives. Quite well equipped especially the kitchen, and plenty of bathrooms. Enough for seven people. And the house was quite easy to access by a 80-year old lady with a walker.

June 2017

Absolutely fantastic cottage sleeping 10 ...3 doubles and 2 twin bedrooms there were only 6 in our group so we all benefitted from fabulous harbour views, leaving the twin without a sea view as a walk in wardrobe as there isn't a wardrobe in the double on the first floor so this was ideal.... The basement kitchen was beautifully equipped with everything you could wish for ...we will definately stay here again

March 2017

Superb location and amazing views over the beautiful harbour.

April 2016

Thank you to the owners of The Beach House for allowing 4 generations of family, plus dogs to stay in your home. We had a lovely, relaxed holiday. A perfect location, with beautiful views.

NOTE: unfortunately this property no longer accepts pets

Really pleased we booked this Cottage!

September 2015

Lovely rooms. Fabulous views from the windows and ideally located for the beaches and the town. We all particularly liked the kitchen/diner set-up in the basement which allowed the adults to have enjoyable evenings together and be sufficiently far away from the three sleeping young children two floors above us. All the rooms were comfortably furnished and to have so many en-suite showers was a particular bonus .

June 2015

Even with 10 people sharing the house there still felt like there was plenty of space for everyone.

The location is perfect for those who like to park the car up for the holiday and enjoy the beach, shopping and restaurants. Great for families sharing.

April 2015

Very spacious and pictures of lounge area maybe don't give true indication of size. With 10 staying, you never felt on top of each other.

Great location, clean, modern with great facilities - especially like the massive fridge and ice machine.

March 2015

Wonderful for large groups was able to celebrate 60th birthday with family all together children and partners
