I live in Cornwall with my husband and two children. We have lived in St Ives for 30 years and this year we celebrate 26 years of marriage.
Samara Parton purchased this house in 2014
My husband and I bought this plot of land and have built our first house. It has been a fantastic experience. We have put a lot of love into the build with a view to giving our customers the best holiday experience.
Camana is a detached property in a lovely quiet location but you are not far away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives.
There are lovely sea glimpses from the kitchen/living area.

We stayed here for a week in July with our teenage daughters, communications with the owner prior to the trip were excellent. The house is as described, it has been very well thought out, the only thing I would add would be a hot tub!
We met the owner whilst we were there who wanted to make sure everything was ok, she was very pleasant and helpful.
The house is excellently placed for the local beaches which have to be amongst the best in the country, there is a great pub a few minutes walk away, a superstore around the corner and St Ives is about a 20 minute walk away.
I have recommended the house to friends and family, its hard to imagine you could get somewhere better in the same price range.
My daughter and I had a short visit to St Ives and stayed in the delightful studio.
Our host was on hand for anything we needed, which was not much because the studio was fully equipped and catered for everything, however it extended beyond this including tips and advice about the local area, nothing was too much effort.
The studio was immaculate and not far at all from the centre of St Ives. Thoroughly recommend :D
Would definitely recommend this property. It's very spacious and modern with lovely comfy beds. Very well equipped - even plates/cutlery for the kids. It's conveniently located just next to Tesco and near the bus stop for St Ives. Train station also not too far away. It's walking distance into St Ives but quite a hill on the way home!
The property was extremely clean and well maintained.
Overall - it's a fantastic house and would love to stay again soon :)
We have just arrived back from an amazing week at Camana. The house is fantastic and has got everything you could possibly want during your stay. The owners have definitely thought of everything and are more than accommodating with any requests. The house is a short walk to the beach, and down to St Ives. Which saves loads on parking, plus the hassle of trying to park during the school holidays. It's 2 minutes from Tresco and the cornish Arms pub, which does great food and has pool tables and sky sports. Which is also a bonus when you've got 3 boys. Overall fantastic I would definitely recommend this property.
Camana provided very comfortable accommodation for our party of 5 adults. The rooms are clean, bright and spacious. It was useful to have 2 upstairs bathrooms and a sink and toilet downstairs and the 2 parking spaces were appreciated. The equipment was good and there was nothing more that we needed. It was useful to have plenty of glasses and mugs. We enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine on the terrace. Correspondence with the owner pre booking and pre arrival was prompt and very friendly. The list of equipment (number of tea towels etc) which we received was handy so we knew what not to pack. Access to the coastal path is directly opposite the road and it is a pleasant downhill walk to St Ives with a walk uphill back along the road or along the coastal path (steeper). It was relaxing not having to find parking in St Ives. The proximity of Tesco makes catering easy and the Cornish Arms (3 mins walk) do very good home cooked Sunday lunches and evening meals. Despite being close to these facilities the house is set well back off the main road and is peaceful. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Every thing about our experience staying at Camana was great, right from the friendly and efficient communication with Samara all through the booking process, to the overall impression and functionality of the property. Our deposit was also returned speedily.
Even though it was just two of us, we appreciated having the usual amount of space to dress etc., that we normally have. Much easier than battling for the bathroom in an hotel. Safe, off-road parking is also important to us; if you are a larger family with two vehicles, you'll find the property ideal, as there are two parking spaces. The nearest grocery store is literally around the corner - I'll leave you to decide whether it, or another supermarket in Penzance has the best view from the car-park, and indeed coffee shop! The neighbourhood is really quiet, but road access is really easy. Walking into St. Ives takes about 15 mins (though admittedly we are v. fast walkers); maybe allow an extra 5 mins to get back up the hill though. Which is good, because you can walk off your dessert easily! Failing that, there are bus stops near the house, and the taxis are very reasonably priced too. We also loved the proximity to an amazing vegetarian restaurant (The Bean Inn). Honestly, even if you're not veggie, try it.
The property has everything you could need, it's exceptionally neat, warm and clean, and I would not hesitate to return, or recommend it to friends.
We really enjoyed our stay at Camana. The house was large, clean, bright and airy. It was well suited to our grown-up family, the facilities extensive and easy to use. The highlight for me, was that the house was situated close to the entrance to the coastal path between Carbis Bay and St Ives, my favourites walk anywhere.
Camana is a 15 minute walk to the beautiful Porthminster Beach. We are spoilt for choice in St Ives with 3 other stunning beaches all within walking distance. We have stunning coastal walks too so there is something for everyone.

The beautiful town of St Ives is situated at the south-western tip of Cornwall and was once a sleepy little fishing village. It has transformed itself into a vibrant holiday destination with its four stunning beaches, its world-class restaurants and cafes and its infamous artistic heritage, a thriving art community since the late 19th century is now home to a branch of the Tate.
Let St Ives capture your heart. Enjoy a romantic evening meal on Porthmeor beach with a bottle of wine and enjoy the spectacular sunset.
