Beach hut themed self catering bungalow set in 100 acres of woodland

Bungalow -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
St Ives, Cornwall, England
Starfish Rest is a lovely bungalow which has undergone a full internal renovation and now offers a peaceful well equipped holiday let with underfloor heating. It’s beach hut themed interior is a delight to stay in and the light blue and white interior enhances the beach hut theme.
It is set in a quiet corner of St Ives Holiday Village backing onto nothing but acres of dense woodland perfect for picnics, children playing and early morning dog walks. Starfish is surrounded by nature, squirrels, hedgehogs, rabbits, jays, robins, owls, foxes etc and all the children love feeding the squirrels who literally peer in the windows requesting lunch.
Starfish is a particularly sunny bungalow receiving all of the fun day sun and the grassy area directly outside is perfect for sunbathing on. The small private terrace is a great place for a barbecue...

Interaction with guests
The fact that my guests enjoy their stay in my bungalows is absolutely imperative. For this reason, as soon as I have access to your email address I always contact my guests and introduce myself, and send a seperate booking confirmation outlining all the relevant details. I am always on hand by phone , text or email to answer any guests questions, and I encourage them to do so. Many of my past guests have now become dear friends who return to my bungalows regularly and I often meet up with them in St Ives for lunch or sometimes join them for a walk on the beach.

This condo was very clean and welcoming, with a location in Cornwall that could not be better. We loved feeding the Squirrels with my Daughter and we were all very sad to leave this place. A would definitely recommend this accommodation to family and friends.More

Thank you and I am pleased you kept ‘my’ lovely squirrels well fed. You will be pleased to know I carry on feeding them all through the winter ( costs me a fortune )... I hope to welcome you back one day. Thanks again -...More

About the neighbourhood
The holiday bungalows arevset in a quiet corner of St Ives Holiday Village surrounded by nature and wildlife. The postcode is TR263HX and this is a 10 min drive to the centre of St Ives and a 5 minute drive to Carbis Bay. In the other direction is Hayle which is also 5 minute drive away. The free onsite parking is close enough to the bungalows to make unpacking a breeze, yet far away fir the traffic not effect the tranquility of the area.
Getting around
The easiest way to get around is by car but during the high season summer months the local bus service calls atbthe park entrance hourly and goes to either st ives or Penzance. The local taxi firm also collects regularly and a taxi into the centre of St Ives is approx £8.50 fir 4 people.
Car advised
How to get there
I always email all my guests a couple of days before they arrive with detailed directions telling them exactly how to find each bungalow , as it is quite easy to take a wrong turning and get lost in the woods.
