Quainter than it looks in the photos, lovely location, perfect base for St Ives family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at The Buoys, so conveniently located between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches, with Norway Stores just round the corner and even (if you are lucky, like we were) parking next to the property.

Close enough to the town centre (3 mins) to be able to pop down to Moomaid of Zennor & St Ives Bakery to bring back morning coffee & croissants for breakfast without it being a major outing.

The cottage has lovely character with it's two entrances. The quiet garden square upstairs is perfect for an evening glass of wine whilst still being able to keep check on the kids (we had three under 8, sharing the bunk beds).

All round a very very good holiday cottage.

Nice apartment, perfectly located - unfortunately widely untended

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is exactly as the description promises. Perfect location, good furniture, expedient kitchen, bathroom etc. Peter, the host, is also very responsive (remotely) and the "pre-reads" he sends out are very helpful. Unfortunately though the cleanliness of the apartment is poor. It seams that floor, bathroom, toilet, kitchen, fridge etc. have been wet wiped only ages ago. The patio, shared with other apartments in the block, is neglected at best. On that ground we do not recommend the apartment unless Peter finds a way to quality check / observe the cleaning.

Owner's Response: We are glad you think that the apartment and location are as good as we describe. We also pride ourselves on providing as much info and help both before and during a visit. We feel your comments perhaps lost something in the translation as “Widely untended” is quite a strong negative statement to make. We use one of the best, if not the best, cleaning company in St Ives. Our cleaning company provides services for the main St Ives letting agencies. These agencies, and ourselves, would not use them if they were not good. In the 10 years of letting we have never had a negative comment. You contacted us regarding the cleanliness and the revisit by the cleaning agent’s manager to inspect the situation was rejected by you. To be specific on the points raised we think perhaps, there was a short period between the cleaning finishing and your arrival. The tile and exposed pine floorboards are vacuumed, wet dusted / floor polished. They could have still been damp on your arrival but this demonstrates cleanliness NOT the fact the whole property is “widely untended” With regards to the patio area. We point out that it is shared with 3 other apartments. The area is covered with paving slabs which are clean and not broken. Our property has a nice bench outside for visitors to have coffee etc. Yes some other properties have their own tables / chairs and perhaps chairs might not be under tables but this should not reflect on the nice patio area we provide outside our apartment.

lovely cottage and close to everything you might need to enjoy your holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Buoys is a great place to stay for a holiday in St Ives, a good size for a family of four with a great range of facilities. The Buoys was clean and well presented and we received lots of helpful information from the owner on the cottage facilities but also really good tips for travel and for enjoying St Ives.

It is ideally located for access to the beach, shops and restaurants of St Ives and I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you it was a pleasure to have you stay. You are correct the private courtyard makes it quiet and secure to store beach thinks and literally it is only 1 minute to the Harbour or Porthmeor beach !

Sehr schöne Wohnung in zentraler Toplage - eine Minute zum herrlichen Porthmoer-Strand, eine Minute zum Zentrum der Stadt, und sehr ruhig. Perfekte Ausstattung auch für die Tage am Strand. Vermieter sehr hilfsbereit bei Fragen zur näheren Umgebung und mit sehr guten Tips.
