Highly recommended.

Blissful break

  • 5 of 5

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, approx 10 min stroll.

Thoroughly recommend :D

We enjoyed our stay at Lowena Studio very much.

Lots of thought has gone into making this studio as comfortable & equipped as possible.

We couldn't think of anything bad to say about it at all?

We have no qualms about staying here again & would recommend this place to our friends & family without hesitation.

Man kann in diesem Studio gut wohnen, aber ohne Erholungswert

  • 2 of 5

Das Studio ist modern und perfekt eingerichtet. An ein Wandklappbett kann man sich gewöhnen. Alles war sauber und durchdacht angeordnet. Die Sicht zum Meer war wie auf dem Foto. Vor dem Haus befand sich eine Hauptstraße mit 2 Kreisverkehren. Da die Straße stadtauswärts ansteigend verlief beschleunigten alle Fahrzeuge nach Durchfahren der Kreisverkehre lautstark. Schlafen mit offenem Fenster und sitzen auf der Terasse waren kaum möglich(im Juli möchte man das aber!!!). Diese Lärmbelästigung war vorher nicht erkennbar z.B.auf Fotos, die die Kreisverkehre zeigen. Wir empfanden es als Täuschung des Buchenden!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Monika. My heart sank when I saw your two star review as I haven't received one bad review in all our 6 years. I am glad that you found the studio modern, perfectly furnished, clean and thoughtfully arranged. I am sorry that you found the noise from the road a disturbance because it was hot and you had to open a window. That's a real shame. We have a velux in the roof and air vents on the windows which can be opened in hot weather with very little disturbance from the road as the studio is double glazed throughout. I wish you had mentioned this during your stay to give me an opportunity to resolve the situation by providing a fan to save opening the window. Nothing is too much trouble and I always like to be as helpful as possible to ensure the perfect holiday. Our location map on our advert clearly marks the studio is next to a road and I would have been happy to answer any questions prior to booking regarding the location. I am so grateful that you have taken the time to write a review. It's important to us that we know exactly how our customers feel and it's valuable information for future guests who maybe thinking of booking. I am sorry once again, Samara

Location

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Lowena Studio is a 16 minute walk (1.3km) to the beautiful Porthmear Beach. But 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.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Newquay (about 45min drive) from St Ives. Once in St Ives a car is not necessary.

Distances:

Lowena Studio is in the town of St Ives and is only a 10 minute walk to the town and harbour.

Further Details:

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.

St Ives has so much to offer including surfing, fishing, relaxing on the beaches, shopping or simply walking the coastal path and enjoying the breath-taking scenery.
