“Stunning house. And that view!” Chynalls makes the most of its impressive position, with a huge picture window from the second floor living space looking down on the harbour, the Island, and taking in Godrevy lighthouse to the East. I've always loved St Ives, but it had been 12 years since my last visit, so a return was long overview. When our annual yoga break in Zakynthos was cancelled due to Covid, I decided it was time to rectify that. Our group of six absolutely loved the house, especially those of us who bagged the front bedrooms - there can be no better start to the day than sitting up in bed and opening the curtains onto that view. And said picture window upstairs was perfect for our morning sun salutations, again with the view in a starring role. It really couldn't have been nicer. More exercise was 'enjoyed' climbing the steep steps up from the town - yes, there are a lot of them, so it would not suit anyone with mobility issues. Though there is a longer way by road and there are plenty of taxis available in the town. The house is extremely well equipped, very modern and with nice touches such as kitchen basics and spices provided, as well as toiletries. And Rod, who lives next door, is very helpful and obliging - we'd been cold the first night as we couldn't work out the heating controls, but when I called the next morning he was there within two minutes to explain how it worked. My only suggestion would be that a bit more info in the book of notes would avoid him having to do that. There is plenty of parking, and we were able to store our cases in the garage on our last day so that was very convenient. All in all Chynalls was perfect for us and I really hope to return. In fact I could very happily live there.

“Beautiful location” The house was very warm, clean and inviting on arrival with some scones, bread and tea and coffee as an added surprise after a long drive. The house had wonderful views from the lounge and front bedroom. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything from utensils through to dishwasher tables, sponges and tea towels. We have stayed in many holiday rentals where none of these basic items are provided and it was wonderful to have these items already stocked for arrival. We did have a problem connecting with the WiFi but this was quickly rectified by contacting Rachel and this wasn’t an issue throughout the rest of our stay. The only two issues that we had was that we only managed to get parked in a designated parking bay 50% of the time, meaning we had to park on double yellow lines for the rest of the time. As we were out of season we weren’t particularly concerned about getting a parking ticket however during the high season I can imagine this being a problem and possible one that would stop us returning in the high season. The other issue was with the double mattress. It was incredibly uncomfortable, we could feel the springs and each night it felt like we kept rolling into the middle with no support. I would like to add on a positive note, that we had a delightful stay in a wonderful property.
“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 stay, fantastic house with plenty if interesting features. Felt like home, didn't want to leave.” Wow, fantastic views from the top floor. It is really close to town, just down a few steps. Great beach (Porthminster) nearby for walking the dog off-lead out of season. The house was very clean and comfortable. Christmas tree and decorations made it really special for us and a lovely basket of goodies including Prosseco was waiting for us in the dining room. Log burner made the evenings cosy and the kitchen was well equipped with more than everything we needed for some great meals. The en-suite bathroom was quirky, beds were really comfortable and TVs in all rooms with smart TV in the lounge. Pity the grandchildren didn't come with us as they would have loved the loft room with the narrow stairs and sloping roof - also was a great place to sit and have coffee while looking out at the harbour (binoculars were provided to see way out across to Hayle or see the people eating in the restaurants along the front in the evening). Owner was very accommodating and easy to contact. Would love to stay here again.

“Great house” 11 of us booked the house, all facilities for anything you require doing. House was clean and tidy and very homely. Location is great, Litterly a stone throw from the town. Also a nice little touch with a hamper and fresh milk on arrival. Bath towels and beach towel for everyone as well. I would certainly recommend. Thank you Peter!

“Perfect Cornish Gem” The Old Chapel was everthing we wished for in Location and accommodation for a holiday in Cornwall and a family wedding in St Ives, The owner has provided every home comfort and necessity you could think of. The house was spotless and furnished to very high standards, with the bonus of sea views as it is situated above St Ives and Carbus bay . The property is fairly close to a quiet (it was the week we were there ) touring caravan park, you are permitted to make use of the large heated outdoor pool, although we didn't really make /have time to fit in a swim. The owners have lovely guest manuals with details of some of the stunning walks in the area. I would suggest making use of the local bus or taxi company's which are very reasonably priced and take just a few munutes as the parking in St Ives is a nightmare or better still take the 25 min walk down and transport back up. Decent local supermarkets are just a few minutes away down the hill. Our one regret was we were a week too early for the re-opening of the Village pub, which has excellent guest reviews. Would definitely stay here again.

“Unbeatable location in St Ives - Go there!” Really great place with spacious rooms and well equipped kitchen, perfect for self-caterers. Tucked behind the Tate so really close to the centre of St. Ives but just behind all the hustle and bustle so a fabulous retreat. Couldn't have wished for a better location. Sea views from each of the bedrooms and huge bathroom too. Garden a real sun trap if you get bored of the many beaches or galleries (unlikely!).

“Fantastic - the best holiday house we've stayed in!” We all loved Fish Street, a great house and the best equipped we have stayed in. Everything you should need is there and it was spotlessly clean. We were even welcomed with some delicious scones, jam and clotted cream! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fish St, just please don't book our week! Ha-Ha
