About Vanessa Dain

We are a local St Ives family who moved here from Tunbridge wells as we fell in love with the town after holidaying here for many years. Myself my husband and 10 year old twins love the opportunities that living by the sea can offer such as sailing, surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding.

Vanessa Dain purchased this house in 2008

Why Vanessa Dain chose Saint Ives

We moved to St Ives after holidaying here ourselves since we were young and felt it was the perfect place to bring up our twins. We hardly use our car as everything in St Ives is within walking distance of the house. It’s a very special place, and the Cornish people are lovely friendly and relaxed.

What makes this house unique

Our property is perfectly located with convenient access to the beaches, shops and restaurants of St Ives. The property also has a driveway for 3 cars which allows you to come and go at your leisure to the many Cornish tourist attractions if you fancy a day out.

We have equipped the home with many extras to keep the adults and children amused such as DVD's, games, books, beach toys, boogie boards, Wii console, WiFi, 2 x 42" Smart TV's downstairs and 2 X TV's in the double and King bedroom, and DVD players. If you have little ones in your group we also have a travel cot and a travel high chair that attaches to a normal chair.

Nice property for a family visit

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 adults and one dog staying and the house was very charming. Much nicer with the extra space on offer compared to a B&B. The property also had parking which was a bonus as parking in St Ives is a bit of a premium. There were a number of board games and TV games that no doubt children would have enjoyed. Unfortunately the weather was a bit damp so we didn’t manage to sit outside on the balcony more than once. We enjoyed our stay here and would happily stay here again. It is like a home from home. Thank you Vanessa for sharing your home.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home, a selection of local goodies were waiting for us on arrival, even some for the dog. A good informative pack on the house and area. Large extended 3 story town house with nice furniture and modern decor, very comfortable house. Lovely views especially from the two large double bedrooms. Balcony nice for late afternoon evening sun and drink. Plenty in the house to entertain all ages. Walk times on description genuine and that's with a 1 & 70 year old. Very pleasant and helpful owner. Would stay again if returning to St Ives.
