We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Focsle Down Under. It was very comfortable and warm, which is what you want in November. Although the weather wasn’t very kind to us we were more than happy to sit and watch the world go by through that amazing window.

A really comfortable, spacious cottage, gorgeously close to the beach and a gentle stroll away from the town. Well appointed and cosy, it feels like a real home from home. Our little girl adored her stay here and we will definitely be back!

Simply superb cottage with breathtaking location, clean, well equipped and central to everything.

March 2017

Foscle down under is the perfect location for those who love quick and easy access to the beach as well as only a cockstride from the harbour and town with all that has to offer. The outdoor shower for our exclusive use was a huge bonus when returning from a dip in the sea. The property has a perfect view over Porthmeor beach and we enjoyed listening to the waves crashing on the shore. It is very well equipped for a family and we would definitely stay there again.

October 2016

Focsle Down Under is a fantastic property, comfy, spacious and bright, the owners have thought of everything and more. The location to the town and beach couldn't be better and the view is unbeatable, will definitely be booking again.

July 2016

Amazing location and westerly view over Porthmeor beach for sunset beauty shots, quiet, comfortable beds, nice linen, attractive and well equipped kitchen. Good wifi and mobile reception. It was specially nice to have a large range of beach equipment to use. We've stayed in St Ives many times in nice cottages but this one is special. From the visitors' book it's clear the same people come back again and again and no wonder!
