“A well-equipped house in a great location.”
Reviewed May 25, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We were a group of 7 adults on a walking holiday. We found that Orla-Mor was in a great location close to the bus and railway station and the centre of town. The house was superbly equipped, clean and spacious. The owners had thought of everything in terms of what a holiday-maker might require and every member of the group was impressed. Orla-Mor is ideal for large groups.

If you've never been to St Ives you're missing out on one of the country's little gems. So much to see and do; or alternatively sit on a beach and do nothing at all.

Orla-Mo is so well situated, with easy walks down to the beaches at St Ives, Porthminster or Carbis Bay or into St Ives itself and with parking spaces to the rear allows a quick escape to sights further afield.

The house is very well appointed with every appliance you would need, extremely clean and more importantly very relaxed; Lindsey (housekeeper) was helpful and informative on arrival and on departure and wanted to ensure a good time was had (thanks).

“You won't be disappointed”
Reviewed February 25, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This house was just perfect for my birthday celebration with friends. The location was excellent, everything was within easy walking distance. The house was warm and cosy and so well equipped, probably the best equipped self catering property I've ever stayed in. Booking experience and helpfulness of owner was first rate. Staying here on my big birthday with great friends, in a great location was just so special.

“Blissful retreat”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We travelled and stayed as a large group of extended family with a wide range of ages (from 80 to 4 years!) in early July 2016. Had considered Orla-Mo a few times before but it was booked so was delighted to get a stay of 5 days. We were very lucky with the weather and felt there was always something for the party to do, from walks in St Ives to days at Porthminster Beach which really was a fantastic beach for the family.

The house is perfect as it catered to our whole group particularly given the party size (12) - all 5 bedrooms were used! The fact that there are two living rooms in effect i.e. the kitchen is large enough to eat in and there is a large living/dining room was brilliant for us. Also we ended up using the master bedroom as a separate TV room in the evenings for the children due to the space and sofa bed. The house is very comfortable and extremely well kitted out. This was especially important for us as whilst members of the younger family spent their days on the beach the older generation spent more time in the house. The house views are absolutely fantastic and a sight to behold. The WIFI and SKY TV (with movies) were a bonus. In particular, the Welcome Pack was wonderful and really made us all feel very welcome. Throughout the booking process, our stay and after our stay I was really happy with the customer service received including on site when we needed more sheets which was attended to very quickly.

In terms of a holiday the house is in a perfect location, close to the beach and St Ives. You can literally park your car and not move it all week (as some of us did!). The parking is also imperative as parking in St Ives is basically impossible (and we were there just before high season). Only slight issue we experienced was related to the age and mobility (or lack of) of some of our party which was quite severe. The stairs can be steep (as to be expected given St Ives and location of the house) and from the front of the house to the road there are stairs which may be an issue. However the route to St Ives from the back of the house is much easier. This may be a consideration.

We all had a wonderful time, with perfect memories and I would expect to return soon. I would highly recommend!

“Perfect for a large group”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house was perfect for our needs. Everyone had their own room with private ensuite facilities. The kitchen was very modern and the welcome pack was so much more than we expected.
We were a group of seniors and did not have a vehicle. The house is very high up above the town, and while the walk down was fine, the climb back up was difficult for some of us. We did however discover a bus in St Ives that dropped us right at the door.

“Perfect getaway experience”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was by far the best value for money i have come across in St Ives. The house was very clean with amazing views of the bay. The main bedroom has a large opening window which was a fantastic way to sit in bed with breakfast looking over the beautiful horizion. We were in a perfect location with bars, resturants, walks, beach (and all other attractions) within a 5 minuite walk, (as the house is still set back in a more private area) we had off road parking around the back of the house. I highly recommeded this house for either a romantic getaway or a group of friends or family. We cant wait to return again this year! 10/10

“The house, the setting and the views are fabulous. Highly recommended.”
Reviewed April 6, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

What a wonderful place in a wonderful setting. The views from the living room and the front two bedrooms are to die for. The house was immaculate and so spacious. Ideal for our family holiday. The location is perfect with only a short stroll to town or the beach, especially useful if you have small children. What made this trip so special was the fact that when the kids were in bed you can just sit in the bay window, look at the view and let your troubles float away........
