Family of 8 including 2 children had a great holiday staying at 7 Draycott Terrace. The property was spacious and gave unrivalled views of St Ives.

A very well equipped property within easy walking distance of all the beaches and amenities of St Ives.

What a stunning house and location simply perfect in every way , home from home , did not want to leave this wonderful place the owners have it spot on in every way ! Booking for next year again !

A wonderful, spacious and comfortable ‘home from home’ property with beautiful views from the fabulous lounge, master bedroom and kitchen diner. Very well equipped with the bonus of lots of books and magazines to enjoy. We will definitely return!

This is an amazing place to have your stay in St Ives - the views are amazing and the photos don't do them justice. The house is HUGE and is one of the best equipped we have ever stayed in - we would highly recommend and look forward to a retrun trip!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 7 Draycott Terrace. The location is superb and the views are just stunning. It is a very well equipped house offering every comfort and we would not hesitate to book it again.

We loved every minute of our stay at Draycott Terrace! It’s a beautiful house with amazing views and so close to Porthminster beach and the town. It was a home from home.

Where do we start - 7 Draycott Terrace was an absolutely gorgeous house to stay in. The decor and furnishings were beautiful and very much to our taste. The layout of the house worked so very well for both families staying there - we never once felt as though we were all on top of each other.

The views from the dining area, master bedroom and living space were spectacular, and were the best we have experienced so far in St. Ives. We spent many a moment admiring the view even on a rainy day.

The photos on your website do not do the house enough justice at all. The beds were comfortable with good quality bed linen. The towells were soft and generous. Plus the kitchen was so well equipped we could tell that the owners like to cook. Photos of the owners doted around the house added a personal touch. In fact the house seemed to have everything we needed and so much more. So many games, books, toys, dvd's and beach equipment - it is a family house and not your usual rented holiday home. In fact the children commented that this was the best house we have ever chosen to stay in which is quite an accolade.

We will definitely be recommending this house to friends and family and hope to stay here again very soon.
