Seawater cottage in beautiful St Ives with car parking

Overview

Property

Updated: 10-Dec-2016
Stylishly renovated cottage tucked away In a quiet street close to the town, beach, shops and restaurants

A light and airy cottage that still manages to be the perfect cosy hideaway. With central heating, old school radiators and a feature log burning gas stove the cottage is equally suitable for winter bookings as it is for the summer.

Seawater is stylishly furnished and extensively equipped with all you need for a perfect break. The cottage has undergone extensive renovations and boasts some impressive contemporary touches whilst retaining many original features.

It has its own enclosed courtyard garden to the rear that has a Mediterranean feel with decking, seating and outdoor lighting.

Car parking space reserved in the train station car park, 7-8 minutes walk away - you can offload your car right outside the cottage before parking.

About the Owner

We have loved St Ives ever since holidaying here many years ago. After living/working in Birmingham and then London, we eventually managed to fulfil our dream and make the move to Cornwall. We now live in St Ives, and absolutely love it! Alan and Sharon

'Another fabulous week in St Ives, and no place we'd rather be than Seawater!'

Peter & Catharine, Bath



'We have had a fantastic week in St Ives. Seawater has been perfect for us... great location and a beautiful home to come back to each day. House was fantastically well equipped.

We will be back!'

Rebecca & Hywell, Cardiff



'What a wonderful holiday!

The house is truly perfect, everything you need. St Ives is so much fun for a family- we haven't used the car all week! Thank you.'

Beautiful, cosy but spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is stunning, it manages to be cosy yet spacious, the kitchen is the hub of this house and is beautiful. Located just a short walk from the town centre it is on a lovely side street. The beds are comfortable and everything is very clean. If you are considering booking this look no further, you certainly won't regret it!

Lovely convenient St Ives cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was a lovely home from home. Very convenient location to explore St Ives and the rest of Cornwall.

Lots of nice restararaunts, cafes, pubs and takeaways to choose from.

Cottage was clean, well maintained and well equipped. Parking nearby which was good to have.

Alan was very helpful when booking and answering any subsequent questions I asked.

I would recommend this cottage to friends and family and am sure we will return again soon.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy with Seawater cottage. It's arranged on 3 floors with a large kitchen/dining area in the basement, opening onto a courtyard, a spacious knocked through sitting room on the ground floor, small but nice bathroom on the half landing and three bedrooms on the top floor. It felt spacious, and is very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen is well equipped, with a few store cupboard ingredients such as olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We spent most of our time in the kitchen, playing games around the large table.

It definitely has a wow factor, and was surprisingly roomy for what would have been a two up two down.

Could have done with more shelving in the bathroom as we were 2 adults and 2 teenagers, but the shower was powerful.

Only downside was the damn seagulls at 4:30 every morning, but that's part of the St Ives experience. The location is quiet, yet close to everything.

Not having done self catering before, we weren't sure what to expect, but it was at the upper hand no of our expectations. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review of your stay at Seawater. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay, helped I'm sure by the best week of weather so far this year! I take on board the comment about the bathroom storage- I will take a look at this and see if we can increase this, although unfortunately I can't do a lot about the seagulls (as much as I would like to!!). I think the best I can do is to provide ear plugs from now on!! Hopefully we will see you again in St Ives one day. Alan

A comfortable stay in Seawater

  • 5 of 5

The listing description is 'spot on' regarding the location, layout, facilities etc. Seawater is very clean and also very well maintained. Alan and Sharon provide good customer service and my family would not hesitate to recommend Seawater. We all thoroughly enjoyed visiting 'old haunts' from our caravanning days and walking amazing coastal paths in beautiful weather. A birthday celebratory meal at Porthminster kitchen proved to be an excellent choice.

A beautiful home from home with added luxury.

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely blown away when we arrived at seawater. It has so much space and warmth that we felt at home instantly. On arrival there was a lovely welcome card and gift waiting for us which was a really lovely touch. Thank you.

The bedrooms were a perfect size for our family and there was plenty of room for all of our belongings.

The lounge is a great space, warm and cosy and full of DVDs and games to borrow and watch.

The kitchen was the high point for me, it was a stunning space with absolutely everything you could ever need and more. We have never stayed anywhere on holiday that has been so well equipped, Alan and Sharon really do think of everything. Having outdoor space is a real luxury in st Ives and was lovely for the children to play out in. It wasn't quite warm enough for us to sit out of an evening but I can imagine that this is perfect in the summer months.

On the last day my son (7) said "I want to stay here forever!" I think that says it all!

Thank you for letting us use your perfect cottage, we really really want to return some day.

Best wishes,

The Lewis Family

Lovely cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Seawater. The cottage is beautifully decorated with a gorgeous well equipped kitchen. The beds are really comfortable, the bathroom is lovely as is the decked courtyard. The location is great just minutes from the seafront and we will definitely be returning.
