“Home From Home”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We really enjoyed our weeks stay at the Sail Loft it is in a great central location and convenient for everything. Of all the holiday homes we've stayed in this felt spacious for the 6 of us, with a large kitchen area that was better equipped than our kitchen at home - it even had a pancake pan (which our grandchildren were delighted by)!! The decor of the house was finished to a high standard with a contemporary feel and the wet room at the front of the property was invaluable for showering off after a day on the beach! Booking the property with Greta via Tripadvisor was straight forward and we were kept well informed
The car parking space that comes with the property is a good 10 minute walk away - it's definitely a bonus in St Ives, as parking is tricky, particularly in the summer months.
We enjoyed visiting Olive's cafe upstairs - they do a great cream tea and we would recommend a visit. The only down side to living below the cafe was the sound of chairs scraping on the floor, which we only noticed when we stayed in due to bad weather. This is not something that would stop us coming back as the cafe is only open 11am - 4pm and we were generally out at this time.

“Lovely stay in St Ives”

Fabulous unusual loft/cottage accommodation! Situated right in the centre of town on a small square with easy quick access along cobbled paths to the harbour, the hill and two beaches. Furnished and equipped to a high modern spec with every need catered for, lovely white bedlinen and towels and accessories. The weather wasn't good for our stay but the wet room by the front door would be a huge bonus for a family. Greta was very helpful at all times , especially when we locked ourselves out! Her team responded within 30 minutes and a spare key was brought to let us back in. Brilliant and hassle free. Overall excellent!

“Excellent location and quality property.”

We chose the Sail Loft due to it`s central location in the heart of St Ives. The property is deceptively spacious and has a rather unusual design which is a bit quirky. Fixtures and fittings are excellent quality. Ideal for a beach based holiday it is close to all the main amenities in St Ives. The only downside is if driving there you have to learn to navigate the one way system with it`s narrow roads. Better to leave the car parked up and enjoy the break. The Sail Loft provided an excellent holiday base and we had a great time in St Ives and will definitely return in the future.

The sail loft is a gorgeous place to stay. Beautifully clean, comfortable and stylish and you couldn't wish for a better location. Literally just a few minutes walk from the beaches, harbour and town. Greta, the owner, was excellent -incredibly helpful and always replied very promptly. We had a wonderful week there and the cream teas at Olives cafe, next door, are to die for!

“What a wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Sail Loft is in an excellent location with beaches, shops, galleries and restaurants all within easy reach. The cottage itself is outstanding - spotless and wonderfully furnished: the sofas are comfy and all the rooms are well appointed. It was welcoming from the moment we stepped inside the door and saw the flowers on the table. There are three large bedrooms and the addition of a wet room just inside the front door is a great idea. It has everything needed for a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Greta made the whole experience easy and friendly from start to finish - thanks for everything!
