“A delightful cottage in the heart of St Ives.”

We had the most fantastic week in early March. Beautiful blustery days with dramatic scenery. The cottage was warm and friendly and inviting and had everything you would ever need. It was spotlessly clean with crisp white sheets and gorgeous fluffy towels.
Maintenance work was on going in adjoining properties and the week was not without incidents but the owner, Greta, was truly remarkable and proactive in sorting the issues that arose going way beyond our expectations in ensuring we were happy.

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This cottage is in a great location near 3 sandy beaches, shops, restaurants & pubs. The cottage is a great size, very clean & comfortable, and the complimentary items were very welcome as we arrive late in the evening. The teenagers in our party were thrilled that there was Internet access.

“Christmas in St Ives”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We chose the Sail Loft for its 3 double bedrooms, dog friendly policy, and central location. The Sail Loft provided everything we needed for a wonderful family Christmas away from home. The centrepiece of the cottage is the open plan kitchen and lounge where we shared many family dinners, and prepared a plentiful Christmas lunch. The family bathroom on the first floor was extremely spacious and beautifully decorated, as is the rest of the cottage.

Little more than a hundred metres from Porthgwidden beach, our Dalmation puppy was in her element chasing seagulls and making friends with fellow dog walkers. Although the Sail Loft does not have beach views itself, the Beach Cafe at Porthgwidden beach provided the perfect location for mid-morning coffee and beautiful sea views. Mount Zion Coffee, just a minutes walk from the cottage was also a huge hit with the whole family and definitely worth a visit if you are looking for an excellent cup of coffee!

Already huge fans of St Ives itself, we would definitely recommend the Sail Loft to anyone considering a visit.

Spacious but cosy apartment located two minutes walk from everything, beach shops pub and restaurants. We traveled the first week of October as all the beaches are dog friendly from October 1st. For dog lovers its like Crufts by the sea, The apartment was fantastic with everything you could need and with decent wifi. full bathroom and downstairs shower/toilet so no queuing for a shower in the morning. If you are planning a holiday in St Ives you will not find a more perfectly located lovely apartment.

This property has everything you will need for a wonderful holiday in the beautiful seaside town of St Ives. As well as all the usual crockery, cutlery, linen etc there are books, toys, games, cleaning products, toiletries and beach equipment.It is clean and comfortable with lots of lovely quirky additions, The cottage is centrally located, only a few minutes walk from the harbour and Porthgwidden beach. There are a number of steps into the property so it may not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
