“Another excellent stay!”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was our third visit to Mermaid and it was as good as the first.

The apartment is home from home and has everything you would need for a stay in St Ives. Location is great, a short walk to the front and town. Parking a plenty at the property which is a bonus for St Ives, which has a parking problem.

The apartment is spacious and spotless.

Denise is fantastic and goes out of her way to make sure everything is great from initial contact to when you return.

We will be back next year!

Thank you for your comments, especially those regarding the children's welcome packs. I enjoy putting together their packs, and thinking of things that might appeal and interest them. (I would love to have been a teacher - and this gives me a bit of an outlet). So it means a lot to have this aspect of your stay commented on!! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for being perfect guests! Warm regards Denise

“Lovely Week”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Lovely holiday accommodation, info received before during and after holiday was brilliant. Great base to explore the surrounding areas, being a few minutes by car from the centre of St Ives. The apartment was equipped with everything you need when being home from home. Would certainly recommend this to family and friends.
