“Fantastic location - the best in St Ives!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My wife, son and I stayed in Flat 1 at Seabirds House during half-term. The location of the flat is superb, with views of both beaches from the lounge window. The flat has its own parking space at the rear of the property, which is great for unloading the luggage so close by. The flat itself was satisfactorily equipped, with wi-fi also provided. The harbour and restaurants etc are barely 5 minutes walk away and whilst it's down one of two steep hills, if you take it steady, you're fine. The roads near the property aren't busy and yet you can be out of the car park space and away from St Ives within a few minutes because of the great location. The flat was clean and tidy and warmed up very quickly when we switched the heating on. Booking it with the owner Mary was very straight-forward. We're hoping to come back in the future and wouldn't look anywhere else to stay.

“Dusty, but excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I travelled with my good friend. We are two women, and yes we are good friends, but it was strange sharing a duvet with her.... But it worked. We stayed in flat nr.5 at Seabirds House. Flat nr.5 has no view, but we didn't need that - the view was outside.
The flat was small, but big enough for us. We didn't manage to use the WiFi though! The apartment was clean enough, but it was very dusty in the bedroom and that was a bit inappropriate for me with my allergy!
The location was excellent. Near everything - and we even got excersize every day. The house was on top of a VERY steep hill!
St Ives is a fantastic place to visit!

“very nice place to stay in St. Ives”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The location is fabulous with a splendid vista. 5 mins from the center of town.
Stairs are steep, and it's all up and down, but very quaint. There are a few excellent restaurants.

Liked least: practically no internet connection, very annoying! The Parking is extremely limited. Owners of holiday homes should provide parking possibilities. Underground parking is unknown in Cornwall. Instead of a normal sofa there should be a bed-sofa.

“Idyllic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I stayed in the Barnoon flat. This is one of the best holiday flats I've rented anywhere. Gorgeous view from the bay window. You are two short flights up from street level and can see out over the Island, the harbor, and beyond. I witnessed two rainbows (which says something about the weather in St. Ives). The flat is roomy, attractive, and well-appointed. I found everything I wanted to cook with. Nice firm bed. Convincing shower and bathtub. Pretty pictures on the walls. I couldn't have done better if I had decorated and furnished the place myself. No noise there, except, alas, at night, when seagulls, who haven't grasped the principle of nighttime sleep, squawked, specifically outside the bedroom. So take your earplugs. The same probably goes for anywhere in St. Ives. Barnoon Terrace is perhaps a quarter of a mile from the center of town but a sharp uphill walk.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

First, I should get the only negatives out of the way. The flat, although very clean, is showing signs of some wear and tear and could do with a little re-decoration. Also, the Wi-Fi signal was practically non-existent (maybe there was a fault at the time). Those are pretty minor quibles though and I only mention them to help manage your expectations of this otherwise fantastic holiday flat.

We found booking flat 4 to be very straight forward and the communication from the owner was excellent. No problems and fuss free. The flat itself is very centrally located, well equipped and very comfortable. There's even a large TV and DVD player but to be honest we found ourselves sitting and watching the amazing views rather than watching the telly.

Having been to St Ives a number of times we doubt there are many places better than this to stay - certainly in this price bracket. We definitely recommend flat 4 and hope to return soon.
