Guestbook comments from the owner

What a stunning holiday home - immaculately presented and with so many extras to make us all feel welcome. By far the best we've stayed in, in St Ives.The views are amazing and we loved spotting the house from The Island.

Wonderful house, fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Velnoweth is a lovely house, which is brilliantly appointed, and to top it off it has the most stunning views over Porthmeor Beach. A short walk and you are on the beach or in the town, we couldn't imagine a better place to stay in St Ives. Thank you very much.

Brilliant property in st ives

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying in st Ives for years and this takes some beating. Ideally located to see the best beaches and enjoy the best food on your holiday. The property has everything you need and to top it all off plenty of parking space.

Lovely house with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house. We had everything we needed. It was beautifully clean and fresh. The two TVs were very useful when Eurovision came on!!

Jo's instructions were very helpful so that we avoided going through the centre of St. Ives when we arrived.

There is a wonderful choice of places to eat in St. Ives which is a fairly easy walk via a footpath at the end of the road which brings you down quite close to the beach/Tate.

We will hopefully be back the next time we are in Cornwall and will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you Jo. We all had a great time.

A great base for enjoying St Ives and the area

  • 4 of 5

We chose this property because of its location in St Ives but away from the bustle of the town itself. We enjoyed our short walk to the amenities and the fact that there was parking on site. It was accurately described, had plenty of space and was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The only suggestion we would like to make would be to provide a separate WC downstairs instead of the laundry room.

When we first walked into the house we were wowed by the views from all the windows, you look directly onto the beach and the harbour part of St Ives is visible. The house was beautifully clean and tidy, and was decorated with Christmas theamed items to add to the festive spirit. The layout works really well, with the best views coming from the upstairs lounge. There was an elderly person within the group and they had no trouble getting around the house. The house is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly want, and we were greeted with a hamper of items on arrival, which even included a bottle of bubbly! The house is a 5 minute walk from the beach, resteraunts and bars so is very well located. Surrounding the house are lovely walks in all dircetions, and you are around 30 minutes from Lands End amd other attractions so there are plently of places to visit if you wished to have a day out. The house is easy to find with ample off street parking. There is a very useful guide on how to use facilities within the house, with some good recommendations at the back. I will certainly be returning to the house without a doubt, and have recommended to many friends and family.

Wonderful family holiday home, best location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in St Ives for a number of years for family holidays and this home is without a doubt one of the best we have experienced.

We are a family of five and stayed in the first week of June 2016 - with my mum and her partner and our two and a half year old son. Firstly, the area is superb and not one we have been in before. The walk down to the surfer beach is so quick through the side footpath, down hill on the way and a bit of a climb coming home! The house is in a wonderfully quiet residential area and the peace and quiet was fantastic. The road is mainly occupied by local residents and they were all so friendly. There is a great little corner shop located five minute walk away too so great for the morning papers and fresh bread for picnics.

We loved the upside down aspect to the house, with bedrooms and kitchen on the ground floor - plenty of space. One of the two front bedrooms (doubles) has great views of the sea. The bedrooms were spacious, comfortable with lots of hanging and drawer space.

I'm not sure we have ever stayed in a holiday home that has such a well equipped kitchen! It really felt like a home from home - with so much light pouring in. The dining room doors were brilliant for opening up the garden for an outside in effect - letting the breeze in while we all ate.

We loved the garden area, complete with outside shower. We did of course keep an eye on our toddler because there are some steps up to the main garden. A huge bonus for us was the washing machine (with a great quick wash) and the washing line - our clothes line dried in just hours in the St Ives air! Another reason we felt at home - and you can imagine the feeling of driving home as a family with so little washing!

If you are looking for the perfect sitting room to relax in on holiday then this house is the one - the view is simply stunning and the photos don't do it justice - the view of the sea and the beach is fantastic! The sofas are very comfortable and there are effectively two sitting areas, one near the TV and then one in the bay window overlooking the sea. We loved our morning coffee up in the window sitting area and then watching the sun set. It was so peaceful. There is a great toilet and shower room on the upper floor and a single bedroom.

Lastly, you couldn't hope for a more friendly home owner, Jo went out of her way to make us feel welcome and give us a holiday to treasure. We'll be back!

The house has amazing views over the famous Porthmeor Beach, which is a very short walk away. All of St Ives' beaches are within walking distance.


Private car parking for 3 cars is provided at the house, which is great asset in St Ives.


The centre of St Ives is a 5 minute walk. The house overlooks the Tate Gallery, which is a 5 minute walk away.
