OUr first visit to Sail Lofts - phoned on the off chance of a last minute Easter break. Very helpful on the phone and such a fabulous apartment both internal and position. - 30 seconds from Porthmeor Beach and a five minute walk to everywhere!
The accomodation was spotless light airy and extremely comfortable, would thoroughly recomend.

We have been fortunate enough to stay at the Sail Lofts in Harbour, Godrevy and Ocean apartments plus the sail lofts cottage, and I thought it was about time to write a review and share these wonderful apartments with you!
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Sail Loft apartments primarily because they are fabulous but also because the staff, general ambiance and location are spot on. It takes literally seconds to be on either of two fabulous beaches (both with great cafes too), and its a short stroll to the shops and numerous restaurants.
The apartments are beautifully furnished, elegant whilst relaxed and everything has been thought of.
Do not hesitate to book what can only be described as the best self catering accommodation in St Ives. You won't regret it!
The hardest part is deciding which apartment to stay in and leaving to go home!
We are already planning our return trip.
Enjoy!!

We stayed in Slipway during the first week in February 2013 and whilst we had some stormy days with high winds and lashing rain, we stayed snug and cosy inside. The light and spacious apartment on 3 floors is exceptionally well furnished and equipped, beds are comfortable and the views from the beautiful living room on the top floor down the slipway to Porthmeor Beach are stunning. We had the use of the garage while we were there and our friends were able to park in a designated space a short walk away - definitely a bonus, as parking and driving in St Ives is a nightmare. We spent much time exploring the cliffs and beaches followed by daily rations of tea, scones and clotted cream! Will definitely return but unfortunately later this year it seems to be fairly fully booked so we have booked a Sail Lofts cottage instead. It will be interesting to compare.

This was our second stay at the Island apartment at Easter and once again it exceeded all of our expectations.
The Island apartment is just fantastic for a family of four with the main living room being upstairs and it just beautiful. The decor is of the highest quality and we felt totally at home in such wonderful surroundings. It was so quiet and gave us a perfect break from our normal busy lives. There was nothing better than coming back to the warm apartment after a long day sightseeing and walkin around beautiful St Ives. We just loved everything about the apartment, the original art in the apartment is a lovely finishing touch.
The location is just perfect being just seconds from the beach and gave us the best position is St Ives.
From the moment we started booking our stay the staff are just so professional and their attention to detail is just brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, our request for no feather pillows or duvets due to an allergy was completed without any fuss.
We booked the Sail Lofts for a special treat as it was our 20th Wedding Anniversay and the staff remembered and posted a signed card from all the staff. We appreciated this so much as these little things mean so much! Thank you!
I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to stay in this wonderful place with such accommodating staff.
Well done guys keep up the wonderful customer service as it sets you apart from the rest.

Room Tip: I don't think you'd be disappointed with any room at the Sail Lofts!

We stayed for a week in March 2013, the week before Easter for a walking holiday. This was our second visit to Sail Lofts, having stayed in Harbour in July 2012.

We had the most fantastic holiday on both occasions, and the apartment Godrevy was our favourite. The views and the light were amazing! We preferred our visit in March, as St Ives was still buzzing, but not as crowded which made parking so much easier.

Fantastic holiday and highly recommend Sail Lofts.

We stayed in Lighthouse for 1 week in March. It is a stunning apartment, with lovely views from the lounge. The decor is modern and everywhere spotlessly clean. The weather was very cold outside but inside it was always warm ! The welcome pack of bread, milk, butter, jam ... is a great touch, especially if like us you arrive late at night. This is our second stay at Sail Lofts ( previously in the equally stunning Harbour apartment). These are definetely the best apartments that we have stayed in. We will be back !!
