Bungalow | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
The cottage is situated on a small private drive just above the town and close to the Tate Modern. It has sea views across St Ives Bay and Godrevy lighthouse, as well as the north end of Porthmeor Surf Beach.
With a large garden and ample parking, Avoca is the perfect place to come back to after a day out in St Ives or the surrounding area. It is just a short walk to the town and all its beaches and it's a warm, comfortable and cosy little house with two double rooms (one with an en suite) and another room with bunk beds and a cot/z-bed option. One further room upstairs offers a single bed.
For the 2015 season, we are celebrating 12 highly successful years of letting with an extensive refurbishment of the property to include a new upstairs lounge with a full length double Velux balcony, and extra single bedroom. There will also be added a cosy summer sleep-out for the children - should you have any extra visitors during your stay. The current lounge pictured will become a dedicated dining room and new pictures of the upstairs lounge will be added shortly - the new balcony pics from this lounge are already uploaded.
St Ives itself is a premium destination and a stunning Cornish town with several beautiful beaches and surroundings, so there is always shelter which ever way the wind may blow! The town houses the Tate Modern Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth sculpture Museum as well. There is also a wealth of local galleries in the maze of streets by the quayside. Not forgetting the famous St Ives pottery - with showrooms and workshop. There are also plenty of local sports with a great indoor swimming pool within walking distance for the odd rainy day. Local horse riding schools are nearby and we are very close to the famous coastal path. Why not take the spectacular walk down to Zennor and catch the bus back? It stops right by our lane.
Linen and towels available at an extra cost of £20/room/week. Wifi (via a 4G dongle) for £10/week - normal data usage applies.

The Cornwall region
Cornwall is a stunning place with dramatic scenery, stunning coastline and lots of sunshine. Perfect for sports and such as climbing and surfing, and for those of you who like the cultural side of things, Cornwall is steeped in history, myth and legend - its people and heritage - who used to have their own autonomous region and language and King! They are friendly and welcoming these days!
Cornwall is lucky enough to have some of the best scenery in the country - the most beautiful coastline with sandy beaches, dotted with fishing villages. It boasts some of the best restaurants in the country - if eating out isn't your thing, why not try a Cornish pasty? There is a wealth of sports to do - in and out of the water from climbing to surfing. Come and see for yourself the best region of the whole of England!
St Ives is a stunning place, with beautiful beaches and surroundings. It houses the Tate Modern, come and see some beautiful art - and the Barbara Hepworth museum as well. There is a wealth of local galleries showing some beautiful stuff in the maze of streets by the quayside. Not forgetting the famous St Ives pottery - with showrooms and workshops. There also are plenty of sports to do with the leisure centre just a short walk away for rainy days.

the upstairs lounge will be commissioned very soon so the stairs will lead to a spectacular view.
Point taken about the ensuite, i think i will reverse the bi-fold door to improve access to the shower.

"Relaxed, quiet, central, private, comfortable place to stay"
Just what we needed: we could lie in bed and see flocks of starlings, sea and lots of sky, cook something in the kitchen without missing out on the fun in the sitting room (as they are part of the same room), or walk down to town in five minutes, watch surfers, head out on a long walk or go to the pub or a restaurant. Especially liked that there was no traffic noise in this cottage, lots of space, a comfy bath, loads of hot water and a good sized garden to walk out into. Great place for kids: it feels you could relax with children here as it's not too precious, or twee and isn't at all frilly. Just easy and well thought out.

"Ideal holiday cottage"
Well laid out, convenient and well-appointed single-storey cottage which felt quite spacious, although there were only two of us in a place for six ! Pretty good value.
Also had lovely garden and views.
Although a good walk from the centre of St Ives, it's well worth it for the convenience of having car parking, for loading/unloading and being free to come and go by car as you please. Maybe it's not such a bad thing to walk off the gorgeous pasties,ice-creams & scones freely available in the charmingly unspoiled village.
We would certainly consider staying here again.

"Home from Home"
Cozy cottage, quiet, a place we made our home for an extended time over winter. Avoca offers a welcome respite from a day of walking or other activities, gives a distant view of Godrevy Lighthouse, on a clear night shows the stars and in the daytime gives a front seat panorama of the ever-changing sky. The en suite bedroom is perfect for guests. Avoca served us well for our "home from home" stay in St Ives.
