About the property

House in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk To Two Sandy Beaches, 15 Minutes Walk To St Ives Town

Atlanta Breeze enjoys a privileged position on the South West Coast Path, located between Carbis Bay and St Ives. All the attractions of St Ives are a 15 minute walk away, including its sandy beaches, shops, restaurants and art galleries (including Tate St Ives). The luxury accommodation includes two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen diner, bathroom (with bath & shower) and downstairs cloakroom. Guests have use of the private garden, with stunning views across the bay, deck chairs, a circular picnic table and barbecue. Best of all the private indoor swimming pool attached to Atlanta (the owners' home) is available for use by guests - perfect after a day on the beach, a long coastal walk or an early morning run. We provide all linen and towels, plus all the extras in the kitchen, and a wide selection of games, books and DVDs (just in case the Cornish weather misbehaves!). Our past guests have loved it - you will too.

About David Bright

We are Dawn & David Bright, and we are proud to offer Atlanta Breeze via Owners Direct.

We moved to St Ives in 2008 from Stockholm, Sweden. Like so many others before us, this was our chance to jump off the corporate career ladder and make the break for a better, more balanced life. With our two children Alexandra (16 at the time) and William (12) we bought Atlanta -a lovely family home with an annex perfect for a holiday cottage. And an indoor pool!

After a total refurbishment, 'Atlanta Breeze' was ready for holidaymakers in May 2009. The cottage has been a huge success, with many return visitors every year.

Since then we have also set up Limelight Studio - our photography business, and Dawn runs Guided Tours of St Ives.

We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful St Ives.

David Bright purchased this house in 2008

Why David Bright chose St Ives area

We just love St Ives!

Atlanta Breeze is in a perfect location. Far enough from town to escape the crowds in the summer, but near enough to easily walk to and from the beaches and town.

We are in a totally secluded and peaceful location on the South West Coast Path. Just a few houses, very little traffic and fantastic views across St Ives Bay.

And no problems parking - our drive easily takes four cars.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful location, indoor swimming pool, ample car parking, all linen and towels, luxury duck feather & down duvets, welcome gift, private garden, BBQ, deck chairs, garden games, books, DVDs, indoor games, two bathrooms, washing machine, dishwasher, dishwasher tablets, tea, coffee, salt, pepper, olive oil, sugar, spices, washing-up liquid, soap, detergent. You need it? It's in Atlanta Breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Here's just one that we think sums up what our guests have said:



What a wonderful week we have had at Atlanta Breeze. We really do not want to leave! Waking up every morning to that view was truly amazing. The house is absolutely perfect and had everything we needed - even down to children's cups and plates! The location is great and an ideal distance from St Ives with two prams. The pool was an added bonus and gave the children a chance to burn off more energy.



Dawn & David - you were so friendly and helpful - we can't wait to recommend your gorgeous house to friends and family. Our only complaint . . . . It's already booked for this week next year! Thank you to both of you for a fabulous week in a real home from home!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean and comfortable accommodation which is beautifully furnished and decorated throughout to a high standard and well equipped with everything you may need. Thoughtful touches show attention to detail and give a personal feel.

Lovely garden which is a delight to sit in and appreciate the stunning view which can also be enjoyed from every window and the fantastic pool - the sunrises are breathtaking!

Ideally located with St Ives a short walk away in one direction and Carbis Bay in the other as well as endless places to explore only a short drive away.

We have had an absolutely perfect week and can't wait to visit again.

Thank you so much.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Atlanta Breeze was perfect- a good size, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and homely without losing a sense of luxury. Dawn and David were the perfect hosts- there if you needed them, but so respectful if you just wanted a quiet week. The swimming pool was a highlight and our toddler absolutely loved it. The location was also perfect- 10 mins walk in either direction to two stunning beaches, and short drives to the wonderful Minack theatre, Lands End, St Michael's Mount etc. Also a fabulous farm shop within about 10 minutes. Apart from the bath plug being a tiny bit small so that the water eventually trickled out, we really couldn't fault it. Even the weather was great. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much (and hello to Jack the cat!).

Atlanta Breeze was the perfect place for our stay in St Ives. The accommodation and facilities were first class with everything we needed. Situated on the costal path over looking St Ives bay with a short walk into the town. Thank you Mr & Mr's Bright we loved your house and enjoyed our stay.
