“THIS IS THE WAY TO WELCOME GUESTS!”
Reviewed May 28, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Flowers, a bottle of good Merlot, Maltesers, fudge, a welcome card plus tea, coffee and two pints of milk - all were waiting for our arrival at The Cuban Cabin. That and, of course, the stunning view across the Hayle river estuary to St. Ives. That really is how to welcome guests and it helped us feel at home from the moment we stepped into this charming and aptly named Cuban Cabin.

The impression we had was that the chalet was furnished and equipped as if the owners intended to live there, with original Cornish Blue crockery setting the standard, quality pots and pans and even a vintage pair of Naval binoculars which picked out walkers on St. Ives beach!
The chalet is 20 feet from the Coastal Footpath so if you like walking, which we do, it is ideally placed and when we got back hours later with blistered feet there was the comfy rockers in front of the Cabin to collapse into and enjoy watching the sun dip below the horizon behind St. Ives bay.

The ‘local’ pub on the site is about five minutes walk and has a good pub menu plus a spacious garden directly overlooking the beach. For slightly better food and a good selection of real ales, I recommend the Bucket Of Blood pub which is less than half a mile away on the road down to Hayle – but best to book a table as this low beamed traditional English pub is extremely popular. Ignore the other reviews complaining about a grumpy landlord – he isn’t - unless you are rude to him and then you get your own back – surprise surprise!

Thank you for your kind comments, we do try to provide things that we ourselves would hope for in a holiday chalet: we stay in The Cuban fairly regularly ourselves. It's heartwarming that you appreciated the little touches, thank you.

“Perfect Holiday Retreat”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

What a lovely antidote to the hustle and bustle of St Ives. The beach is amazing, the best i have seen in the UK. The views from the kitchen and lounge windows are superb. Nestling in the dunes at Riviera Towans, the Cuban Beach Chalet is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

We walked all along the coast, which was stunning and into Hayle to purchase our provisions. Carol and her husband were the perfect hosts, leaving us a lovely bottle of prosecco, chocs and biscuits, what a treat. We will return.

“Beautiful chalet with a seaside theme.”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a lovely chalet, clean, well furnished, beautifully decorated, well equipped kitchen comfortable beds & set in/away from other chalets. We were a party of five two adults and children aged 11, 15 and 17 years and there was plenty of room even for my 6ft nephew.
Little extras left by Carol and Steve on arrival (wine, chocolates and card) were much appreciated.
Seating areas inside and out were lovely places to sit & look out at sea any time of day. The beautiful sandy beaches are very near.
Very good location for getting to all of the stunning places Cornwall as to offer….
