“A fantastic place to stay and worth every penny”
Reviewed May 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Very luxurious, light and modern holiday home build upon a hillside overlooking St Ives. Absolutely stunning views of St Ives and the bay from the picture windows in the very spacious living/dining room / kitchen.
The house(and particularly the kitchen) is equiped to the highest possible standards.
The owners, living next door, are very friendly and helpful.
We (6 adults, 3 children) all enjoyed our stay in Chynalls

“Best so far”
Reviewed December 5, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Over the years, we have rented various houses and caravans. This house is the best so far, very modern, with excellent views over St Ives, just a pleasure to sit by the large picture window and admire the view. Underfloor heating meant we were warm and comfortable, even at the beginning of December. Slightly off the urban track, not that easy to find in the dark without sat nav. The view comes with a cost, 10 minutes walk down to the harbour, twenty minutes return, anyone knowing the town will understand.

“Fabulous property in St. Ives”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Chynalls is a wonderful property! It's positioned overlooking the town and the sea, and has lovely big picture windows so that you can take full advantage of the views. Inside it's light, spacious, airy, uncluttered and extremely well equipped. There is parking for at least two cars, and it's only a five minute walk down to the town. On arrival we found that Rod and Beata had kindly provided essentials including milk, biscuits and wine - apart from this there were other basics like tea, coffee, sugar, salt, olive oil etc. In addition there was paper towel, cling film, silver foil, dishwasher tablets etc. Generous amounts of toiletries were provided in all the bathrooms. The booking process was easy and Rod dealt with everything very efficiently - he was there to let us in when we arrived but left us alone during our stay. You won't be disappointed if you book Chynalls - it ticks all the boxes!

“Excellent position, well equipped, hospitable owners.”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The accommodation is very spacious and has wonderful views of the harbour, parking adequate for at least 3 vehicles, I would recommend this property very highly as we have stayed in numerous villas throughout Europe and this one is just as good if not better, with just a five minute walk into the centre you don't need to take your car but will have to navigate a few steps in doing so. Rod the owner is very helpful and goes out of his way to make sure your holiday is an enjoyable one.

Thank you Colin, Katie & Family, Your very Welcome, We understand as Holidaying as children in St Ives, the Family Holiday is very important, especially now days It has seem to have shrunk to 7day so every day become important. Yes I agree Chynalls is the best villa in Europe, and every one in Europe is welcome.

“Excellent - without fault!”
Reviewed July 16, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Accommodation is simply stunning, waking up to the view from this property on a sunny morning is beyond my skills to put into words. Very spacious so you can spread out, very light and airy and also warm. Very well equipped, the kitchen fantastically so. Welcome wine very welcome after a long drive and also the provided toiletries in every bathroom was a bonus. Travelled with family including 3 and 7 yr old. 5 minutes walk and you find the shops/centre down a number of steps however I'm sure there's a gentler way in, we just never had the need to find it. The owners live next door but you are completely left alone. We had nothing go wrong during our stay but our firm impression was that had anything gone wrong or we had been in need of something, this would have been sorted for us by Rod immediately who was very welcoming.
Our third time in St Ives and can't rate this property highly enough, easily the best: it's a showpiece easily visible from St Ives harbour too. We've got a number of friends already wanting the details...
