38 Carrack Widden is a very comfortable and well furnished apartment in St Ives. Great views and easy parking, an essential for us in St Ives. Gentle walk into town. Bit of a hill coming back. Aspects are very helpful, we have rented through them the last three years. Only a minor problem once and dealt with quickly. We like the fact that we can pick up the keys in Hayle on the way down, without getting involved in the St Ives traffic system and drop off on the way home.

You won’t be disappointed by number 38 Carrack Widden. The additional, personal touches such as ground coffee and a small gift pack of flavoured tea bags are thoughtful and it is nice that the owners obviously welcome their visitors rather than treating them as cash generators.

Feb 2016

This property is a little gem in St Ives, it is close to all the lovely quant shops in the town centre, the railway station is really nearby and the trains run regularly and the fares are very reasonable. The bus station is also a stones throw away and there is a good bus timetable. The porthminster beach is literally right in front of the flat and accessible down a flight of steps, best beach in St Ives. Overall a fantastic place to rest relax and breathe in the sea air and eat at the many restaurants St Ives has to offer.
