About the property

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 Alan

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

Alan purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Alan chose St Ives area

St Ives is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday... great beaches, restaurants & surf, and plenty of fresh air!

Come see for yourself why we chose this as a place to live!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'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.'

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really like Seawater, having stayed here twice now. In fact in all the years we have been visiting St. Ives we haven't found anywhere quite as nice to stay. It's in a great location within walking distance to all of the attractions in St.Ives. So easy to park the car and forget about it for the time we were there. Inside we enjoyed the downstairs kitchen for family time, whilst the Wifi and NowTV provided the entertainment for our teenage children on rainy days.

All in all Seawater has everything you need to enjoy a break in St Ives and we hope to return again soon.

Beautiful, cosy but spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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
