Great house in a great location
We really loved our stay in St Ives. Hated to leave this lovely house in a lovely setting. We trained to St Erth from London and used cabs and
walked around. The house was well fitted and had everything we needed for a few great days in Cornwall.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review Pete, we're thrilled with your comments. Hope you'll come and stay with us again soon!
Claire and Rob
The house is lovely, has everything you need and more, and is so convenient to the town and the beaches. I cannot think of a nicer place to stay. Be warned. It is very hard to leave this this view
Nice house tucked away above Carbis Bay
Our family of 5 stayed here for a week in August and had a lovely time. The house had everything we needed. If I were to look for a negative the outside space could have been better maintained/weeded.
Spacious house with beautful views
Spotlessly clean house sleeping 8 in 3 rooms. Well-appointed and attractively furnished. Just off the coastal path and a pleasant walk into St Ives or the beach at Carbis Bay.
Linda, thank you for taking the time to share this. We're grateful for all reviews but this is wonderful. Our cleaner works very hard looking after our home during the summer months for us, so she will be extra pleased to hear the first comment!
We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Nautique. The views were incredible, and the house was very well equipped and comfortable. It is very well located between Carbis Bay, and St Ives, although parking can be an issue in July/August.
Thank you very much for your review Helen.
Yes we agree it's not worth driving into the centre of St Ives in peak summer months! But for those who are up to it is a glorious walk of about 15 minutes along the coast path and there's always the bus at the top of the road.
Ideal location , amazing view, perfect for 3 generations family holiday, we loved it.
This part of Cornwall is one of the most magical locations you will ever find; including some of Europe's best beaches, the UK's finest eating spots, great local produce and all the beauty nature can muster.
Nautique sits neatly above the sheltered and sandy blue flag accredited Carbis Bay beach - never over-crowded and a perfect family playground, just minutes from the house. With the supermarket a 3 min walk away and Porthminster beach, St Ives and the Tate just 10 min down the coastal path you really don't need to get in the car. But if you want to explore Penzance, St Michael’s Mount, Newlyn and Mousehole, Lands End, Sennan Cove, Porthcurno, Minnack Theatre, Eden Project and the Lizard are all nearby.
The surrounding area is amazing; mile upon mile of stunning white sand surfing beaches, crystal clear waters, breathtaking coastal and country walks, art galleries, open air theatres, superb pubs, cafes and restaurants, beautiful gardens and even the odd cider farm or theme park.
Other Activities: kite surfing
