Guestbook comments from the manager

April 2014: 'Thanks so much for such a lovely stay in your beautiful house. What a lovely traditional old cottage. And so tastefully decorated and well kitted out! Loved the wood burner. Very cosy. And fantastic location too. Nice and quiet and yet only minutes from everything! Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely come back !! STEPH, London.





"We had a brilliant stay! Weather was excellent and did some good walks too. I really loved all the unique touches on the property and the log fire was excellent. Also a real bonus is the house has a good hair dryer! Do you have the property listed on trip advisor as I would like to leave the good feedback on there?" Katie Matthews, May 2015.





"Perfect, cosy, only minutes from everything in St Ives." Gavin of Shrewsbury



"Thank you for letting us stay in your gorgeous cottage, we love it," Thomas of Bristol



"You have done a beautiful job of restoring the house - very stylish," Mr and Mrs Weston of London, March 2015

Gorgeous Little Holiday Home in a Beautiful Town

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful property this is! Simple and compact, it manages to squeeze in everything you'll need - the design of the kitchen is a small miracle, and the hand-built fittings there and in the smaller of the two bedrooms are of top quality. The location, just a couple of short streets removed from the bustle of the centre of St Ives, is ideal, and there's a choice of long-stay car parks within a five minute walk. We've stayed here twice now, and confidently expect to do so again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We worked very hard to make Blue Sails a comfortable and stylish place to stay so that we could enjoy it as much as our visitors. Trouble is, our visitors love it so much we rarely get to go as it is booked up! Looking forward to some winter weekends there so much. Jocelyne

Lovely cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage in great location just minutes from shops and harbour. We had a fantastic time with our two dogs. Lelant has a lovely dog friendly beach and St Ives and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous. Would recommend The Queens, Halsetown Inn and a lovely walk (allow 90mins with dogs) to Lelant for lunch and a pint at The Badger Inn!!

A lovely place to stay in St Ives

  • 5 of 5

Blue Sails is a very comfortable little cottage, conveniently located and a pleasure to stay in with our two young children (age 7 and 11). Owners are very easy and pleasant to communicate with. Highly recommended.

Perfect Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cosy cottage in the heart of St Ives. Good walks, fantastic beaches, wonderful choice of eateries (Poldark lookalike at beachside cafe!; then back to roaring log burner, well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. What more could you want?

Charming cottage, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has a lovely feel to it - genuinely home from from home. It's located right in the heart of St Ives, yet tucked away in a quiet street. We'll be back! A further advantage is that we did the whole trip using the train - rail station is less 10mins walk and the overnight sleeper to London gets you home for breakfast! A perfect holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We have tried really hard to make Blue Sails a special place to stay for ourselves and - more importantly - our guests. Glad we have succeeded!
