About Mrs Ylenia Haase
I live in St Ives with my husband, and our two children aged 11 and 14. It is the most wonderful place in the world to live, love and holiday!
Mrs Ylenia Haase purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Mrs Ylenia Haase chose St Ives
Before Cornish Cottage came on the market it was always one of those properties that intrigued me. It was the type of place that every time you walked passed you wished you could take a peek inside. When it came on the market we couldn't wait to view it and we both fell in love with it instantly. It had so much character and was every bit the romantic quintessential cottage. Steeped in history it is reputed to be the smallest and oldest house in St Ives! We renovated and decorated the cottage in a contemporary style - careful to retain all its character features including a working open fireplace.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is a unique property in the very heart of St Ives. It is just two minutes level stroll to the harbour, shops and beaches and one minute to the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden and Trewyn sub tropical gardens. It has the huge advantage of the use of a parking space for our guests. If you have ever been to St Ives before you will know that this is a huge bonus!

Comfy, Cosy Cornish Cottage
Simple, just did not want to go back to reality. The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and right in the middle of St Ives itself with access to all that St Ives offer.
I hope to return one day soon...........
I am so pleased you had a comfortable stay at the cottage! And appreciate you kind review. I hope we can welcome you back one day in the not too distant future too!
Best wishes from St Ives!

Beautiful cottage to spend our honeymooon in!
We booked this cottage for our honeymoon and it was just perfect. Beautifully decorated - every detail was thought about carefully. It is not the biggest of cottages but perfect for two people and every detail and storage saving idea been thought of. I loved the kitchen colours so much I took a picture so I can re-created it at home when I have a new kitchen! The bathroom is a really lovely space with a bath, shower and rain-shower. We couldn't have asked for a better location - right in the town centre opposite the Barbara Hepworth museum and literally a 1 minute walk from the shops. We used the bakeries just around the corner for morning coffee and croissants with the stable door open in the cottage - couldn't ask for more! We would definitely recommend this cottage and would definitely book it again.
Beautiful place to stay
Great place to stay with fantastic character.
Excellent location, reflect the calmness of the coast in this fabulous cottage.
A charming & beautifully decorated cottage off the Main Street of St.ives perfect for exploring the town, enjoying the restaurants and pubs.
Just the perfect holiday to enjoy St.Ives and coastal walks.
Exactly what it said on the tin.
Based on previous experiences, I don't take the description, I wait till I see it, feel it and touch it. We weren't disappointed. The location was ideal. The cottage was ideal for the wife and me. Ylenia and Paul were readily available with any problems or queries. Thank you both. It was one of the best beds we've slept in. Look forward to revisiting in the not too distant future.
Thanks so very much Ron for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the cottage. We are so pleased you both enjoyed your stay!
Really do hope to see you in St Ives again soon.
Very best wishes
Ylenia and Paul
Cosy, centrally located cottage.
We have just returned from a lovely week long stay in the Cornish Cottage
The Cottage has all the amenities you would need, including plenty of logs for the log burner. As the weather was kind to us we did not need to use this. The owners allowed us to park our car outside their home and we did not use it all week. We used the train and bus for a coastal tour and trips to Porthleven and Sennen. We walked to Hayle, Carbis Bay and Zennor. It was always lovely to return to our 'Cornish home' in the evenings. There are plenty of restaurants and pubs within walking distance. We would highly recommend the Cornish Cottage and hope to return. Many thanks Ylemia your Cottage is just perfect.
