Great cottage in great location. We'd go again and recommend to anyone

  • 5 of 5

We loved our break at Sandy Feet.

We managed to get a space in the Island car park and didn't touch the van all week.

It's a lovely little cottage with everything you need, the kids loved the DVDs and the extra beach toys we borrowed.

The beds are lovely and bedding very luxurious.

It's only a very short stroll to the harbour or Porthgwidden beach. We had breakfast at the Porthgwidden Beach Cafe twice as the food and views are amazing.

We also ate at The Mex (Mexican restaurant) and loved it.

We had a few beers in The Sloop and loved that too. It was great to be car free so it was safe to have a beer without needing to drive or walk far to get home.

We'd happily stay again and would recommend it to anyone.

We also went swimming at the town leisure centre which is a 15-20 minute walk (up quite a lot of steps as it looks over the town). It worth calling ahead to check times of pool openings as we wanted to use the children's pool and it's not always open (busy with lessons). It's a nice pool though.

Owner's Response: Thank you David for such a lovely review! I am so pleased you had a lovely time. We all really enjoy the car free nature of St Ives as well. It's a pain parking but then lovely as there is such little traffic that our road has a lovely play out on the street retro vibe the kids love. Thanks again for such a nice review. Much appreciated!

Great location. Compact and clean. Excellent communication from Vikki.

  • 4 of 5

Vikki had been great offering advice on where to park in St Ives. Arrived to find cottage as described; clean, compact and well kitted out. Such a good location for the town and the lovely beaches.

Only thing missing was a dish cloth to do the washing up - would have helped. Otherwise, great!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Good stay great location for town and beach, house was overall very comfortable. I was disappointed there was no hair dryer at the property but the tea, coffee and fresh milk was a welcomed addition. Our little boy enjoyed all the beach toys and we all had a lovely stay.

Perfect location to be on foot

  • 3 of 5

For the months leading up to our visit to St Ives, Vicki was most helpful. However, we arrived and found the cottage in only fair shape. Having said that, I understand completely that if a house is not up to par, it is not the owners fault, but the cleaning staff who have been hired.

Having been a VRBO owner myself, I also understand how essential it is to make certain the maintenance is done on the house correctly and thouroghly prior to the next booking.

A well equipped kitchen is so important and I found that there was nothing in the way of even the most basic of condiments, not even paper napkins. The interior of the oven had not been cleaned for a while it seemed and so I was hesitant to use it. Most importantly though and why I have written this review is the washing machine. It would have been greatly appreciated if the washing machine had been cleaned, by running an empty cycle perhaps, prior to our use, as it has taken 3 washings to rid our clothing of the rancid water scent that was left on them from the machine. I never thought of doing this myself as I presumed everything would be in perfect working order. I am sorry to have to write this and I would like to emphasize that I know it isn't Vicki's negligence, but I do feel a solid talking to the cleaning staff would be most helpful.

St Ives is a beautiful spot though and if you do surf, you will not be disappointed by the offerings nearby....bring your wet suit and cap though!

Family of 4 down for the weekend surfing. The property was in the perfect location. 5 min stroll to the beach. 2 mins to harbour side.

Would definately stay here again.

Our first visit to St. Ives and we loved it. The cottage is in an ideal location meaning we didn't need to use the car all week. Vikki was very helpful and informative and I would definitely recommend this spotlessly clean, cosy cottage.
