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!!)

Modern and spacious house. Ideal for beach or town

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to have chosen Blue Rock for our holiday. The house provided us with everything we wanted from easy car parking to sumptuous lounge with stunning views. Both the town and beach were in easy walking distance - we hope to be back one day.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful house as a family of 8 (including 2 children aged 7 and 10) from 11th_18th of August 2018. House is all you need. Lots of space. Spotless clean and spectacular views. I would certainly book again. Short walk into st ives harbour with all its lovely eateries shops and 3 lovely beaches.then back to the house for cosy evenings playing board games and admiring the view again at night.
