"Beautifully appointed house in St. Ives"

I spent a wonderful New Year's holiday with my husband, two children and parents at Gwithians Reach. The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished, the kitchen nicely kitted-out, and there is a lovely view from the conservatory. The house is just a short walk from the centre of St. Ives, but far enough away from the crowds of tourists. It was especially nice on New Year's Eve, when we had a great view of the town's fireworks from the conservatory and back terrace. The owner was a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a holiday let in Cornwall.

"St.Ives at its best"

My wife, two kids, the in laws and myself have all just enjoyed a fantastic week at Gwithians Reach in St.Ives. The property is beautifully decorated and has all the creature comforts you need when having a break, well equipped kitchen, rooms all big enough and with good quality furniture to handle 4 adults and two children. Stunning deck to enjoy breakfast and evening meals whilst enjoying the view.
The location is also great offering off street parking for two cars (small cars I would say), less than five minutes walk to the centre of St.Ives or about ten minutes to the beaches and harbour.
Have stayed here before and enjoyed it that much we decided to come back and will probably rent again for our next trip to Cornwall as its also a great base for getting around.

"Fabulous Place!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortably furnished house. Great location within easy walking distance of the harbour, beaches and shops. We enjoyed relaxing and taking in the beautiful view across the rooftops and over St Ives Bay. Cant wait to return!

"The most perfect St Ives holiday location !"

Gwithian's Reach is ideally located for a holiday in St Ives. Beaches, cliff walks, pubs, restaurants are all easily within walking distance - in fact we never used the car once all week and the off-street parking was a true bonus! Having renovated numerous properties ourselves, we really appreciated the attention to detail that has been applied here. Just perfect for either a summer or winter break!

"Great location - perfect for a week in St Ives"

Having stayed in a number of rental properties in Cornwall this one does work really well, its clean / tidy / well equipped and the wifi kept older kids happy, it has a real seaside cottage feel. It's patio gets the morning sun and is great for sitting outside and the bbq and tables were well used for outside dining. The rear access makes getting into town very easy and avoids the steep hills and the closeness to Porthmeor beach (10 minute max walk) is perfect for leaving the car on the drive, the parking space in St Ives is a real benefit. Bedrooms all of a good size and beds very comfortable, the seagulls seem to prefer other houses so sleep is easy ! We have had 2 great weeks here over the past 2 years and couldn't ask for more...

"Cosy, well equipped cottage close to Porthmeor Beach"

The cottage was perfect for our family holiday and all of us enjoyed the 2 weeks very much. The garden with the shower is perfect when you come back from the beach. From the conservatory and the patio you have nice sea views.

"Fabulous cottage, extremely well equipped, great location with the added bonus of having parking!"

Having stayed in St Ives quite a few times this is the best yet. Very well equipped and very family friendly.

Such a bonus having car parking spaces. Lovely quiet location with extremely scenic views of the bay from the conservatory.

"Great house with stunning views!"

We stayed at Gwithians Reach for 5 days but wished it could have been longer! Good location - 5 minute walk to town but set in a nice quiet residential road. Parking for two cars was a little tight but we managed it with two family-sized cars.

The house is fantastically finished inside - new appliances, recently decorated, very comfy beds and towels soft enough for a 5 start hotel! It was spotlessly clean too. We spent a lot of our time in the conservatory and on the decking enjoying the great views out towards the sea. In the evenings the log burning stove was a nice touch.

Overall I can't fault the property and would definitely stay again. The owners were really friendly to deal with and you get the impression they genuinely care your stay being a good one. Highly recommended!
