Guestbook comments from the owner

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cornish Pearl in St Ives. The house was comfortable, very clean, nicely decorated and had everything we could possibly want. It was in walking distance to the beaches, shops and center of town. I will recommend this property to my friends who visit St Ives.

This is a very well equipped and spacious property

  • 5 of 5

Communication was easy and the house had everything we needed and more. It is truly a home from home. It's an easy walk into the centre of town. There's an (expensive) car park immediately behind the property and a more reasonable one a few minutes' walk away up a hill and flight of steps opposite. We were three adults but the house could easily cope with more.

Lovely home and so close to the sea front.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in St Ives and the surrounding area, I have actually been to St Ives 4 times but I have never stayed in the town until now. The house was very close to the front, nicely decorated, and the kitchen had everything you need. Would love to stay here again if and when I get a chance to return to St Ives, lastly the owners were very helpful and answered my questions quickly.

Fantastically situated for the town and beaches, a real pearl!

  • 5 of 5

From the outside the house is very well presented and situated, but once you step inside the house is a real home from home. It is beautifully decorated, with a lovely fire to cozy up in front of on the colder evenings. Plenty of games for the whole family to get involved. Lovely kitchen with all the necessities. Loved every minute of our St Ives stay and will definitely be back to this home. Sara and clan from Wiltshire

The best stay so far in St. Ives

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the house - it has so much atmosphere and has so many nice details - we just felt at home after 5 minutes. Very nice bedrooms - beatiful furniture and a nice view to the sea! The light in the bedroom in the middle was fantastic. We will come back next year for sure.

Thanks to you both for making our stay so wonderful.

Best Thomas and Annette
