We absolutely love St Ives and this holiday home is a true Gem!!! The views are stunning, the accommodation is always immaculately presented, well equipped, the quality is exceptional and no matter what the weather....it is the perfect place to stay. Great location to explore the beautiful beaches in the area and a down hill walk into St Ives takes only a few minutes (maybe a little longer on the way back!!) Can highly recommend it....you will not be disappointed. (Great communication with the owners too - and they allowed our dog to stay too!!)
