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!

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.

Beautiful cottage ideally located for the beaches and harbour area.

As a family of 4 with young children this accomodation was ideal, we have holidayed several times in St Ives, this property was by far the best place we have stayed due to the following points.

1. Beautifully presented cottage.

2. Ideally located for the beaches

3. Ideally located for st Ives town centre.

3. Well equipped kitchen including washer /dryer.

4. Good sized bedrooms with comfy beds.

5. Good sized living/ kitchen area

All in all we had a good time and had no issues at all with the property, Would definately stay there again and recommend to others.

Disappointing stay

  • 2 of 5

Felt we paid five star price for three star accommodation . The oven was so dirty we couldn't use it for the smell and the smoke from old burnt on food , plates badly chipped , cutlery filthy and needed washing before you could use them,table warbled so badly it was difficult to eat from it,light broken in fridge , bad smell in toilet had to get bleach and clean it before use and constantly replace air freshness in there for the duration of stay because we couldn't get rid of the smell . Poor quality delapidated furniture ,one of the single beds broken and no where to hang cloths in the bedroom with the single beds,would not go again for free to that place .

Owner's Response: Firstly I am extremely sorry that you didn't enjoy your holiday. I know that you were grandparents taking your grandchild on holiday and it did nothing but pour down all holiday. I have passed on your comments to the housekeeper. Cleanliness is something we take very seriously so I am very sorry they fell below your expectations. I know the housekeeper and myself leave out telephone numbers in case you have any problem. I wish you have phoned us so we could have rectified any problems at the beginning of your holiday. The housekeeper actually doesn't clean the cutlery and crockery in the change over clean as we ask the previous guests to do their own washing up and putting away. Apologies that this was not done to the standard you would have expected . As this response is as much for future guests I do feel that I need to defend ourselves as some of the comments are unfair. We have been renting out the cottage for a little over 2 years and all the furnishings are new and of a high standard. Both the bathroom and the kitchen are new and all rooms were also newly decorated . I really have spent an awful lot of time making the cottage as nice and comfortable as possible. I personally made a check the week before to make sure everything was in good order and felt everything was perfect ;something which was backed up by the fact that the guest the week before you stayed left a 5* review. At that point there was no bad smell or broken bed.Obviously I will check on all the points you have raised and replace and mend anything that requires it. In terms of pricing I have priced the cottage the band below its given value by Aspects holidays and frozen the price for 2 years.
