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 Saint 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!!)

Brilliant home and location

  • 5 of 5

A truly fantastic house in a great location above Portminster Beach the space and panoramic views are just great.

A beautifully furnished home with excellent TV, multi media and wi fi services and we were able to park three large cars in the private parking area to the front of the house.

Blue Rock was a great home in which we fully enjoyed a special family occasion, just stunning. Thank you Parwin.

A lovely place

  • 4 of 5

Blue Rock is the perfect base for a holiday in St Ives. It is a luxurious property with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for relaxing and enjoying the panoramic and picturesque sea views. A lovely retreat, but only a short stroll to the hustle and bustle of the pretty town and harbour or the large sandy Porthminster Beach. A great house in a great resort!

Wonderful Winter Break!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say… Blue Rock was all I had dreamed it would be, and more. We spent a wonderful Christmas here, and it lived up to all our expectations. From huge comfy beds, to superb views from the vast (but cosy lounge) looking out to sea!

The location is spot on, as it is only a five minute walk into St. Ives town centre or to Porthminster beach. Over the Christmas period it was lovely to see that St. Ives was a bustling hive of festive activity, a jolly atmosphere but not too crowded.

Parwin was excellent to converse with – and the booking process good not have been easier. The house was great, with modern interiors and plenty of communal space to sit and play scrabble or watch Christmas films. The lounge was the cherry on the cake with its breath-taking views, and room enough for all the family to have a sofa each to snuggle into after a windswept jaunt on the beach.

The kitchen really came into its own whilst cooking Christmas dinner for 7 – the double oven and hob made it seamlessly come together. We also had everything we could possibly need with regard to utensils, pots, pans and serving dishes – and so there was no need for any last minute dashes to buy for instance a pastry brush for the Boxing Day turkey pie! (Parwin had thought of everything).

In addition, for such a large house, it was surprisingly toasty with its super-efficient heating system. Which made for a warm and homely feel.

Lastly, a very pleasant Christmas eve was spent having an early dinner at Porthminster Beach Café – located 5 minutes down the road. The food was superb and the service very attentive, and it was only a short stroll away (*with some steps) so we were home in good time for my son to put a glass of sherry and carrot out for Father Christmas and Rudolph before tucking him into bed. Bliss, thank you very much – we will definitely stay at Blue Rock again.
