Lovely property that’s clean, tidy and very comfortable in a great location.

4 of 5
We had a great stay at the property. The apartment is clean, tidy and the interior is very nice! The location is great, just a 10 minute walk into St Ives town. Richard the owner has been very helpful throughout and we would highly recommend!

Cosy cottage overlooking Mousehole Harbour

5 of 5
Very cost little cottage ideal for 2 people with great views out over the bay towards St Michaels Mount. Ideal base for exploring South West Cornwall. On arrival we received a warm welcome from David and Christine and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
