“What a little gem”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We found this little gem a few years ago and have returned many times since. It is in a perfect location, well-appointed and has the added bonus of a car parking place outside the door - literally. This is a premium in St Ives where car parking is notoriously difficult. Out of the front door, down a little passageway and you are on beautiful Porthmeor Beach with easy access to the Tate Gallery. Everything you need for a great holiday is here, with good restaurants, especially 'Peppers' one of our favourites. The owner, Shirley, has even had the forethought to include wi-fi in the apartment to keep up with modern trends.
Highly recommended.

“A Delightful Stay in a Wonderful Position.”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

What a fantastic time. My partner and I were greeted by the most lovely lady who owned the The Old Salthouse. She couldn't do enough for us, or have
been more friendly and informative on where to go and what to do.
A terrific position, so close to the lovely beach, the harbour, the shops and art galleries in the most quaint streets. St Ives is a real gem, with so much to see and do, but we think it was our accommodation that made our week.

“Magnificent, great apartment, everything to hand and a (much coveted) parking space!”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Thanks to Shirley & Tim for an excellent two weeks in St Ives. The apartment was outstanding, very clean and to have your own parking space was an added bonus. The Car rarely moved as everywhere is within walking distance. We reccomend Sky's Diner on Fore Street and if you want a BIG Breakfast or traditional roast dinner we suggest Smokey Joe's (Transport Cafe with class) at Blackwater, making sure you say hello to Aubrey who'll sing for you all night!
Love St Ives, will be back again.......... Soon.
