“Cosy, well equipped cottage close to Porthmeor Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The cottage was perfect for our family holiday and all of us enjoyed the 2 weeks very much. The garden with the shower is perfect when you come back from the beach. From the conservatory and the patio you have nice sea views.

“Fabulous cottage, extremely well equipped, great location with the added bonus of having parking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Having stayed in St Ives quite a few times this is the best yet. Very well equipped and very family friendly.

Such a bonus having car parking spaces. Lovely quiet location with extremely scenic views of the bay from the conservatory.

“Great house for toddlers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We recently returned from a week at gwithians reach and had a fab time. We have 2 year old twin boys and the house was very safe (gates where needed) and damage proof allowing us to sit down and at least partially relax! The houses had obviously recently been lovingly renovated and was immaculate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it although parking is really for 1 car, not 2.

We're delighted to hear that our home provided you with a relaxing place to stay, we go to every effort to ensure everyone is catered for, including the little people in the family! Sorry to hear that you found the parking a bit tight. We fit two family sized estate cars in which is a bonus in St Ives where parking is at a real premium! We do hope that you will return to Gwithians Reach for future holidays!

“All the ingredients for the perfect holiday ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Firstly I would like to say I would recommend this holiday home to anyone wanting to stay in St. Ives with young children the location was superb , the off street parking was an added bonus especially when carting buggies to and forth , the garden was a great place to relax with the children who enjoyed it very much and the terrace had stunning views of the bay.

As we already knew St.Ives is a very unique and special location with picturesque family friendly beaches and the house was just as lovely. The furnishings were of a high standard very clean and modern. All the appliances were up to date and the gift basket was a lovely touch.

Correspondence with the owner was quick and informative. We hope to visit again in the near future after such a wonderful holiday.

Thank you for the memories.

“The Best Holiday Rental We Have Stayed In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a superb property! Every appliance and entertainment unit worked and a binder of very useful information ensured no problems were encountered. Everything was quality and a very nice welcome pack of goodies was there in the kitchen. The property was clean throughout. We would definitely book this property again if we go back to St Ives.
Our party comprised 4 adults and 1 5 year old.

“Great house with stunning views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 for a stay in September 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Gwithians Reach for 5 days but wished it could have been longer! Good location - 5 minute walk to town but set in a nice quiet residential road. Parking for two cars was a little tight but we managed it with two family-sized cars.

The house is fantastically finished inside - new appliances, recently decorated, very comfy beds and towels soft enough for a 5 start hotel! It was spotlessly clean too. We spent a lot of our time in the conservatory and on the decking enjoying the great views out towards the sea. In the evenings the log burning stove was a nice touch.

Overall I can't fault the property and would definitely stay again. The owners were really friendly to deal with and you get the impression they genuinely care your stay being a good one. Highly recommended!
