Location description from owner
The England region
St Ives is a lovely fishing village which both retains its traditional character yet has many many restaurants,galleries,craft shops and kiosks selling Cornish ice cream,as well as pasties !Not only great in Summer, St Ives has loads to offer all year round, a winter morning walk in the wind along the front watching the 'big seas' and dodging the odd wave that comes over the harbour wall followed by a drink in a cafe or pub is great fun !The St Ives school of art was home to Barbara Hepworth,Bernard Leach and now has the famous Tate St Ives.Nearby attractions include country houses with splendid gardens,The Minack open air theatre,Flambards theme park,Lands end and some great coastal path walks.
Downalong is a warren of windy cobbled streets in the (in my opinion) best bit of St Ives.The cottages were mainly fisherman's houses and retain much character. Love lane, Rose Lane, Fish Street ,Teetotal street and even Virgin Street are all nearby street names. Downalong is mid way between the 3 main beaches and close to the shops,pubs and restaurants.No arduous walk up the hill after your day in the town or on the beach back to your accommodation if you stay in Downalong !

“Super cottage in heart of St Ives.”
The cottage "flip flops" is in the centre of town and close to the beaches. It has been fully refurbished to a high standard with everything you need for a great holiday. Don't bank on parking too near but there are plenty of spaces in town. We have had a super time again made easy and comfortable by "flip flops "
“Beautiful cottage - great location!”
We stayed at this cottage just after its renovation: absolutely lovely and would highly recommend - very high standard. Facilities were excellent - appreciated bathroom, plus en-suite, & TV in each bedroom! Location could not be better: about a minute's walk from the harbour & shops/restaurants. We were looking for a relaxing break & this fitted the bill perfectly. Communication with owner also excellent. Many thanks!
“Flexible, dog-friendly accommodation in the heart of St Ives”
Flip flops offers comfortable, flexible dog-friendly accommodation so close to the centre of historic St Ives you wouldn't believe it possible. Clean, and welcoming on your arrival, on-suites on both floors, and the most surprising, the fantastic collection of eclectic art! (My favourite was the huge fish behind the downstairs loo). The courtyard gave an 'outside' feeling to the cottage, much appreciated by all, especially the dogs. Parking was available, although mostly jealously guarded by the other residents of the square so I would advise buying a Rover Week Ticket and ignoring the car park full sign on the Island Car park, and queuing! Once parked then you can relax, saunter down to the harbour and enjoy!!!
A lovely week in a beautiful cottage right in the very heart of St Ives. The Tate and beaches were less than 3 minutes walk from the cottage. The bunk beds were a sensation with our two young children. And the views and sounds were divine. We had the pleasure of Derek and his family being in St Ives whilst we were staying in the cottage. They were incredibly welcoming and helpful wherever they could be. We felt at home. The week was mainly sunny so we got to go to the beautiful beaches. And close enough to get into wet suits and go body boarding knowing that we only had a short stroll back to the cottage. Can't recommend enough!
“Fab cottage in a fab location!!!”
Me my Husband and 2 boys stayed for a week here and loved the location as was next to everything. It was spotless! It had stair gates which was brill for my 11month old. Would recommend to anyone. Derek the owner was really helpful. Hopefully coming back next year.
“Fantastic stay over new year!”
We stayed over new year at Flip Flops and had a fabulous time! The cottage is very quaint and so well equipped! Everything has been thought of!! Really like the main bedroom, very spacious! The bunk bed room was small but ok for my 8 and 10 yr old. Our 13 yr old daughter had the sofa bed and said it was really comfy. Location wise you couldn't get any better.. Literally 30 seconds to shops, restaurants and harbour. I would really recommend St Ives anytime of the year, but new year was fabulous! Thanks Derek for being so helpful!
“Gorgeous cottage in fantastic location”
We loved this cottage - right in the centre of everything and so well equipped. Everything we could possibly need was in there. It was lovely to have the beds made up and the heating was so easy and efficient. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. We found a parking space just outside which was a bonus. We took our dog on so many lovely walks - especially our favourite to the Badgers Inn at Lelant who do great lunches! We ate out at the lovely Firehouse Grill and Peppers as well as Weatherspoons. All in all, a brilliant week in a lovely dog friendly, welcoming cottage!
“Fabulous long weekend”
We have just returned from a fantastic weekend break at "flip flops". Derek the owner made communicating and arranging the rental super easy, and made great efforts when we needed to change details.Very accommodating. The house is literally seconds from fore street and 1-2 minutes from the local beaches. It also benefits from some outdoor space, so if you are returning from body boarding/surfing, you can get sorted before going into the cottage. There was a very nice power shower downstairs as well as a bathroom upstairs. The cottage provided everything for our needs in an ideal location. Being a dog friendly cottage was great and we popped in and out of the cottage all day long, walking with our two dogs. There was plenty rooms for their bed downstairs. The cottage also features a tv in every room! So on a wet afternoon we watched some catch up TV on the living room Smart TV which was really nice. Overall this was a super cottage, with a spacious bedroom upstairs. We really enjoyed our break and will be returning next year.
“loved Love Lane Cottage”
Really enjoyed our week and found the cottage lovely. We've stayed in St Ives before several times but this is the best place we've stayed at . Really convenient for everything and lovely and cosy. Kids really appreciated the good broadband and netflix and we appreciated the freedom of being able to pop down the road in the evenings. fabulous weather made it all superb.
“Lovely cottage, fantastic location”
Lovely cottage in an absolutely fantastic location, everything you need & more for a really comfortable break. Owners really pleasant & very helpful, fantastic dog friendly cottage, our dogs & 9 month old loved it, as did all of us! Thanks to Derek for a wonderful stay.
