                                                                                                      5 of 5

The kitchen had everything we needed, and the downstairs area comprising lounge, open-plan into a sunroom was clean and comfortable with plenty of seating. The outside decking area with table and chairs has a fabulous view over St. Ives and the bay, and is a nice place to sit morning or evening. Upstairs the bathroom fittings are modern, as are the bedroom furnishings. The owners have given a lot of thought to preparing this house, and also provided a helpful information pack that not only gives ideas on where to go but also has practical information like where to get medical help if needed. The value of the off-street parking space right outside is only something you appreciate when you see how busy St. Ives is generally, and contemplate searching for street parking or walking to and from one of the car parks each day. The location is very convenient - a 2-3 minute walk down the hill, and you're on the harbour-front with all the shops and restaurants etc. And when you return, you've got that panoramic view.
