Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at Bay Retreat, it was spotless and very comfortable. We had everything we needed for a great time and with the little branch line train and beach close by it was perfect.



Thank you for a fantastic holiday would recommend to others!

Clean, quiet, ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Loved this apartment for the week, it's got everything you need and close to the beach and train which takes 2minutes to get into St Ives. The hill down to the beach is steep but we needed some exercise after eating in the great restaurant on the beach.

Lovely property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my mum. The apartment was perfect for our needs - good size with open plan living area. The property was very clean and well looked after. The host provided everything we needed including dish washer tablets, soap etc.

There is also a communal terrace few steps away from the front door. The view from the terrace is truly beautiful .

The location of property is really good - close to the beach (few min walk up/down the hill) and short drive to St Ives and other local attractions. Also it's near the train station which is very handy. You can take train to St Ives for £2 return instead of driving there; parking in St Ives can be a nightmare. Host provided train time table and information about local area. There is a big Tesco just few min drive from the apartment which came very handy.

Booking process was very easy and communication with the host was excellent. Deposit was return within 2days.

I would love to re visit St Ives and this property and would not hesitate to recommend it.
