About David Summers

Parwin & David purchased Blue Rock in 2012. Parwin is a school teacher and was born in the Punjab and David is a Chartered Surveyor and was born down the Road in St Columb Major.

David Summers purchased this house in 2012

Why David Summers chose St Ives

David's dream has always been to own a property close to a great surfing beach and with spectacular sea views. Parwin, on the other hand, is a self-confessed chatter box who enjoys the arts and likes having lots of people around her.

They started searching for a holiday home in June 2012 but got off to a slow start as they were both looking for different properties.

Fortunately, their search came to an abrupt end when they found a house that ticked all of their boxes. Blue Rock is within easy walking distance of the centre of St Ives, overlooks Porthminster beach, the sea and the harbour. It is also close to Porthmeor beach (one of David's favourite surfing beaches) and has great car parking. What more could anyone ask for?

What makes this house unique

This lovely detached holiday home is superbly located 4 minutes walk from the centre of St Ives and 5 minutes walk from the Blue Flag Porthminster Beach, and has stunning views of the harbour and the sea.

With stylish interiors, this reverse level architect designed holiday accommodation combines the charm of the seaside with 21st-century convenience. Perfect for families or groups of friends.

It has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, car parking for up to 3 cars and a Mediterranean style garden.

St Ives was awarded ‘Best UK Seaside Town’ in both 2010 and 2011. With cobbled streets and artists’ studios, it is a great place to chill out in pavement cafes or gourmet restaurants. The Tate gallery is also worth a visit.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this fantastic house. The views of St Ives are breath taking from the lounge and kitchen/dining room. The house has super comfortable beds and sofa's and it is also very well equipped with very thing you need and televisions in very room. Parwin is lovely to talk too and just so helpful in very way.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Blue Rock in St Ives and had an absolutely fabulous holiday there! It was the perfect location for chilling out in the comfy sofas with floor to ceiling views over the roof tops to St Ives and to the fabulous beach below. We loved the modern feel of the house. Gorgeous kitchen, great dining table and amazing balcony (which must be glorious in the summer). The master bedroom was so spacious with briliant wardrobe facilities and the shower was incredibly powerful - superb!!! St Ives is such a pretty place and it was great to be able to walk from the house to the local beaches, all the shops, cafes, restaurants.... you name it - it was all on our door step. (Once we had parked the car - we did not use it again!!!). The three main beaches are all stunning! Our dog was in heaven!!!!!!! (Thank you for letting him come on holiday with us)! We would love to return to Blue Rock! No matter what the weather is doing outside - the accommodation is so well positioned and all the finishing touches the owners have provided are guaranteed to ensure a great holiday destination. Love it!!!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for your wonderful review. We are pleased your dog loved all of the beaches in St.Ives. We also rarely use our car, when we are staying at Blue Rock, as the shops, restaurants, art galleries, etc, are within easy walking distance of the house.

Super Holiday !!

  • 5 of 5

Blue Rock is a lovely house and extremely well equipped with everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. The views from upstairs are stunning and we felt totally chilled out and relaxed as soon as we went through the door. It is the first accommodation we have ever stayed in where we wanted to stay for longer, usually we are ready for home after a week !!

The weather was very kind to us and we breakfasted on the balcony several times, even in late September, enjoyed a game of Rounders on the beach with a Cornish pasty and cider picnic! (Rattlers !!) and flew our seagull kites (which did not stop the real seagulls from trying to steal a pasty !! but we fended them off with the Rounders bat !!). We had great food in several of the lovely restaurants and enjoyed the art galleries and individual shops. Blue Rock is within such easy walking distance of all that St Ives has to offer.

A very memorable family holiday for all the generations from grandparents to one year olds, all helped by the wonderful house and great location.. we will be back.. That's assuming Blue Rock is not already fully booked for years to come !!

Great property , great location , stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in St Ives as a big family party and Blue Rock met all of our expectations. Great location, fabulous views and the property was beautifully furnished , spacious and well equipped. Plenty of room for our party of eight adults , a baby and two dogs. Breakfast on the deck looking over Porthminster beach was a great start to the day and we made use of the good sized BBQ too. The fabulous lounge on the top floor is great for relaxing on good or bad weather days. St Ives provides plenty to do - surfing at Porthmeor, dog walking at nearby Porthkidney sands, boat trips, galleries galore and plenty of interesting shops to browse round. We saw seals in the harbour and even spotted dolphins using the telescope provided at Blue Rock. The choice of restaurants in St Ives is excellent and we enjoyed plenty of local produce. We all had a great week and hope to be back soon!

A wonderful house & location - views to die for

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week down in St Ives at the fab 'Blue Rock' - the weather was SO good and we just love the house and location.

This was our second visit and it's great to see that the owners keep updating things - the brand new en-suite & walk in shower is lovely, loungers on the terrace, new kitchen kit. The place is always spotless when we arrive.

There really is a view to die for from the living room and you get lots of different sea and harbour views from the kitchen, terrace and dining area.

It was great to have breakfast together on the lovely sunny terrace every morning, looking over to Porthminster beach. The terrace and the decking areas downstairs are great spaces for lounging and reading too - real sun traps

Local new finds this time included:

1) Porthmeor Beach Cafe.. Good food & drinks selection & a beer and glass of Pimms after a hot, sunny day on the beach was very welcome :-). Right near the Tate too..

2) The best ever croissants at Pasty Presto (taste like proper French ones)

3) Regular little bus from town that drops you right by the door

Old faves like the Porthminster Cafe and Blas burgers as good as always

We had everything we needed on site and nearby - had a lovely holiday - can't wait to go back. Actually...we didn't want to come home! :-)

St Ives was awarded ‘Best UK Seaside Town’ in both 2010 and 2011 and is a real Cornish gem. With cobbled streets and artists’ studios, it is a great place to chill out in pavement cafes or gourmet restaurants. The Tate gallery is also well worth a visit.

This delightful seaside town, with its unique art scene and award winning beaches, is the perfect place to explore, have fun and relax.

How To Find Us:

From the M5, take the exit onto the A30 towards Bodmin and Okehampton. Now go through 3 roundabouts, which will take about 1 hour 42 minutes.
