“AMAZING VIEWS FROM THE HOUSE!”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed here for a week in May. The property is high on the hill overlooking the main
surfing beach. There is a car parking space behind the property. There was a minor hitch when the instructions on where to find the key (the message went to my junk mail box!)
were unclear. Otherwise everything perfect. From the main room you overlook the Atlantic
and from the back a fantastic view towards Lelant. The property has wi-fi and a TV.
It is a short walk to the restaurant on the beach by the Tate, a wonderful place to eat and
watch the sunset. St Ives gets very busy at Bank Holidays but mid-May is a perfect time to
visit . You can buy a one-day Cornwall "rail-rover" for £10.00 which gives you unlimited
rail and bius travel all over the county-as far as Plymouth.

“Practical house with great views”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Fantastic views from the house, everything you need in this practical house. You can even borrow the body boards in the garage. You can walk to Porthmeor beach in your wetsuit. Almost carpet -free so avoids worry about sand in the wrong places when you get back from outdoors. Stairs are wooden loft style and narrow. Well-equipped kitchen. We liked the house a lot. Only drawback was a dodgy towel rail and failed lock on the bathroom door. I found the bath's shower surprisingly effective and sufficiently powerful despite the narrow appearance of the head.

Liked best: Wonderful location and views though huge windows.

I wish I had this view from my kitchen! The house was lovely, warm, well equipped and a great location.
Quick response to queries from the owner.

“Great location, views, St Ives light, comfort and parking”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

We found this property about 8 years ago and in recent years have visited in both May and October. They always say Location, Location, Location and Ocean Loft certainly has this with a 2 minute walk to Porthmeor beach and 5 minutes to the centre of town. Situated above Tate and Porthmeor this "upside down" house has a large kitchen, dining and lounge area with fantastic view to the beach from the 1st floor lounge patio window and far reaching views over St Ives to Hale. These window flood the whole floor with the famous St Ives light and many an evening we are able to watch the ever changing sunsets.
Parking is at the rear of the property or in garage which is such a plus point in St Ives.
House is very comfortable, furnished to a high standard with twin bedded room in roof, and main double room on ground floor (with a fantastic new 5ft bed..very comfortable). Down stairs to garage and lower access door.
St Ives itself has everything for everyone surf beach, Harbour beach, Large family beach and small cove beach all within a 2 to 10 minutes walk away. Many excellent places to eat out for all budgets, Tate, great shopping and even fishing trips from the harbour.
We do come to Ocean loft for a week leave the car parked up, turn the mobiles off and relax and enjoy all that St Ives has to offer in in comfort and re-charge the batteries!
