About David & Parwin 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 & Parwin Summers purchased this house in 2012

Why David & Parwin 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.

Blue Rock is an amazing holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Blue Rock! 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!!)

The house was lovely, perfect location, parking for our 3 big cars

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults 1 2 year old and our 2 small dogs stayed in Blue Rock for 1 week. 30th June - 7th July. The house was very modern and clean. We were met by Paul the house keeper. He welcomed us with a bottle of Proseco and chocolates. He was very polite and informative. We loved the house, it was very spacious and had everything we needed.the location was perfect we ate our evening meal on the balcony and was able to see the beach which was lovely. This holiday was by far the best ever and i cant wait to go back.

Wonderful home from home

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing week at Blue Rock, the house is superbly maintained and very well equipped with everything you could need during your stay. The location and views are outstanding, I was absolutely blown away and actually shed a tear when I first arrived and took in the view from the upstairs living room ! And with just a 5 minute walk into town, with parking for upto 3 cars this really is a stand alone St Ives holiday rental. The property is very tastefully furnished and decorated and just feels like home from the minute you walk through the door and we have already booked to return!

Beautiful spacious property with lovely views and a short walk to the town

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Blue Rock.

The property is ideally located with sea and beach views from the large living room on the 1st floor. It's a 5 minute walk to the town too. The kitchen it delightful and has both dining room and outside eating areas adjacent.

The bedrooms are spacious and modern and the bathrooms and showers to a high standard.

No hesitation in recommending this property.

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. At the next roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Nut Lane (A3074) and continue through 3 roundabouts, this will take approximately 8 minutes. Now turn left onto Albert Road and take the 1st left onto Porthminster Terrace. From there, take the 1st left onto Talland Road and Blue Rock is the white architect designed property on the left hand side.
