“Ideal location and great facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Stayed here in October 2013 with some friends who were visiting from Canada.

We found the location to be excellent. It was only approx 5 minute walk into town. Very well maintained property with great facilities. The welcome information book left by the owner was extremely useful for exploring the area. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

“More suitable for young adults.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Upon our arrival we were disappointed immediately as soon as we saw the front door and window. The window frame and door was filthy! Inside was o.k but it is in need of a new sofa, not very comfortable as it is starting to sag a little.
The skirting boards on each side going up the stairs was covered in dust and the drawers in the kitchen could do with a clean. As for the kitchen sink, well, we had to literally scrub it, it was disgusting. The table and chairs on the patio have seen better days and need replacing. There wasn't a clock anywhere so it could do with one on the wall downstairs, and there's no full length mirror so we had to look through the t.v screen to see how we looked.
The owner seems very nice and helpful although we never met her as she lives in Nottingham. I would recommend getting a new cleaner!
Overall, it was just o.k and thank you for letting us stay but we won't be returning. Sorry!

Management Response
Oct 29, 2013
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted to tell you because of your review we have replaced the garden furniture with some gorgeous contemporary furniture which looks lovely. We have also replaced the cushions on the sofa and provided a very handy international clock which will be really useful for our international customers who also want to check what time it is at home. We now have an extra monthly clean for outside walls and door as this does bear the brunt of any wind coming in from the sea and can get grubby quickly. Thank you once again for giving us top marks for booking driftwood and excellent scores for other things too. We would love to welcome you again to our lovely holiday home.

“A bright modern apartment with lovely sea views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We have a lovely stay in Driftwood, St Ives. The apartment is very well equipped with everything necessary you could think of. The sun trap balcony would be lovely in warmer weather and the location is just a short walk up the hill from the beach and shops. The level of cleanliness is very high and the owner and housekeeper are easily contactable to help out with any queries

“Home from home holiday apartment in a great location of St Ives”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

person found this review helpful

I stayed in the apartment during February half term with my two teenage sons and my sister and her 8 year old daughter. We were all very comfortable and the apartment had all the mod cons. My two sons especially loved the 3D TV rather a little too much! The location is excellent a short walk into the town centre and great for driving as you can head out of the town without going into the busy centre. we were lucky with the weather as it was quite sunny the first few days whcih meant we were able to visit The Lizard and St Michaels mount. The owner had provided everything you would need and I really felt that i was at home! Will definitely visit again.
