"Perfect in every way"
We arrived on a very sunny day in July and were all very pleased with this house in St Ives. It is only 5 Minutes walk to one of the best beaches in cornwall where my husband and son of 12 years had surfing lessons twice and loved it. The town with a good range of shops and classy restaurants is about 10-15 minutes walk, there is also a great little amusement arcade to call in on the way home. Beach Haven itself has fantastic views over the bay, it is clean and comfortable and provides every thing we could have possibly asked for during our stay. There is retricted parking, but this wasn't a problem for us at all, we always found a space.
We didn't want to leave and my son said it was one of the best holidays he has ever been on, although I think the weather helped!
Thank you for reviewing Beach Haven, we are delighted you had a great holiday at our home, we want all our guests to have a great time so it is really nice to read such a lovely review.

"Lovely house in a great location"
We were very happy with our stay at Beach Haven. The property was very well equipped for our toddler, with stairgate, highchair and travel cot (much appreciated as we travelled by train and couldn't carry our own). We were also very happy to find the scones, jam, clotted cream, tea and milk waiting for us after our very long journey!
The house itself was very clean, comfy and modern, with everything we needed for our stay. Perfect for a small family.
The view from the living room is fantastic and the property is only a short walk from the nearest (and in our opinion, best) beach - Porthmeor.
We hope to stay here again one day!
Thank you for a lovely review, we are so pleased you had a good holiday and enjoyed staying at Beach Haven, it is always good to know that our guests have had a lovely time and hope to return as it means we are succeeding in providing high quality accommodation in a great setting.

"A comfortable, clean and contemporary property with stunning views."
I stayed here at the end of June with my fiance and our little girl who is 17 months old and what a fantastic time we had. Beach Haven is beautifully presented accommodation. Clean and comfortable with a stunning view of the old chapel that sits on a hill overlooking St Ives. Walking up to the church is a must.
To be able to relax in the front room and look out at the waves lapping Porthmeor Beach was a real pleasure and the view stays with you long after you've left.
I highly recommend staying here as it's only a five minute walk from the nearest beach and in a great location. The owner, Rachel is friendly and very helpful.
There are board games and DVDs supplied and the wi-fi worked a treat too.
As it's open plan downstairs, our little girl loved the freedom of being to toddle around the place.
All in all this a perfect place to stay to soak up the beauty of St Ives. We were gutted to leave and can't wait to go back.
Thank you for reviewing Beach Haven, we do our best to provide a lovely place for our guests to stay and we are really delighted that you had a lovely holiday. It is really important to us that Beach Haven is presented to a high standard of cleanliness for each guest so it is good to hear that you found that to be the case. We hope you are able to return again one day.
