We really enjoyed our stay here. The booking process and all communication was superb. The apartment is very well situated a short walk from the town, but with excellent on site parking and a quiet location. It is tastefully and comfortably decorated and is very well equipped. We would love to return as it suited our needs perfectly . Thank you

Would throughly recommend this well appointed, comfortable apartment. It has everything you need and is in a great location for town and Porthminster beach. There is a slight hill/steps on way back but shouldn’t be difficult unless you have mobility issues. We’ve already booked this apartment again and envisage it becoming our new apartment of choice for St Ives. Loved it.

Just beautiful appointed apartment. Loved my stay here and would book it again . Close to main town .

Lovely would stay again

Brilliant modern apartment which was more than adequate for us as a family of 2 adults and 2 young children. Very short walk to both the lovely Porthminster Beach and the shops of St. Ives but was also fairly quiet. Beds were comfortable and water pressure and temperature was great. We would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Lovely apartment. Very clean, modern & well equipped. Will definitely be looking to stay here again.

Fantastic apartment! This is the second time we have stayed here and it won’t be the last. Really well decorated and are fully equipped kitchen with everything you need. Location is perfect. Very clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend booking this beautiful apartment .

This accommodation was extremely. The best I have ever stayed in. The owners had forgot nothing. The bathrooms were superb, far better than mine at home!

The kitchen was great and there was every utensil you could think of!

The bedrooms were lovely and beds were comfortable. The decor thought out was beautiful.

The owners have obviously put a lot of care and thought into this property!

I have booked already for next year!

We had a lovely stay in apartment 5 Chy Kensa this apartment, spacious apartment, very clean with great facilities, convenient parking. The weather was mixed for June, but really enjoyed being back in St Ives. We would certainly book the apartment again, it was nice to be on the edge of the hustle and bustle of St Ives.

The apartment is very well furnished, easy to find and a excellent location for St Ives. There is a steep bank to walk up from the Harbour so it is not ideal for everyone but we had a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to others.

Loved our stay at 5 chy Kensa. Clean, Modern, lovely apartment. Everything we had wished it would be. parking space on our doorstep. A view, 5min walk from town centre, steep but fun. Thanks aspects.

This is a lovely, spacious and comfortable apartment. It is well equipped and in a convenient location to access everything St Ives has to offer. We had a wonderful holiday.

Very well appointed apartment with reserved off-road parking space. Easy access to shops, restaurants & pubs. Had a wonderful stay & would return.

We had a lovely stay in this apartment, we have stayed in the block before.Parking on your doorstep, quality towels and bedding, a folder with all details you need in the apartment. The weather was amazing for September, beautiful restaurants, coastal walks, lovely quaint shops in St Ives........ we have already booked for next september but will be back before then...........

A beautiful, modern, clean and lovely apartment. No real sea view but five minutes walk from the sea front. Perfect for a stay in St Ives.

Fabulous location, high quality fixtures and fittings with beautiful finishing touches. The property was recently decorated and the decor is tasteful and fabulous throughout - if we visit St. Ives again we will do our best to stay here - you can't say better than that!
