St Ives, Cornwall, England
Carrack Dhu maisonette is a beautifully renovated apartment in a Victorian terraced house with both original features and modern facilities. Private garden (with BBQ) and entrance at the front of the house to the first and second floors. We are located on a leafy, quiet residential road with south-facing aspect, stunning sea views and only a 3 minute stroll down the hill to the harbour. Porthmeor Beach and the Tate gallery are only a spooky 5 minute walk away through the graveyard! The central location combined with quiet, leafy surroundings and spacious interiors make this the perfect base for exploring all that St.Ives has to offer.
Making Waves apartment, our other property, is on the ground floor of the same house with its own private entrance and garden at the rear of the house.
Reserved parking by arrangement.

Great place - easy to get around bits of Cornwall we wanted to, and seashore and shops just a 5 min walk away. Simon is lovely and very welcoming. The place is great and relaxing. There are stairs to be mindful of for the little ones but they loved the space, the views from the window and bay seats and...

Property is split over a couple of levels but this adds character. It's well equipped and kept well inside, has everything you need for a holiday. Fantastic views of St Ives (it's half way up one of the hills) - you can sit in the bay window and view. The location finds the balance of close to town (5 mins...

About the neighborhood
ST IVES A CORNISH PARADISE<BR>A picturesque town ringed by glorious beaches and a beautiful harbour. An amazing variety of shops amongst narrow cobbled streets will appeal to some, while others will enjoy its close proximity to coast paths and the wild Cornish country-side. Porthmeor, its largest beach, is a prime surfing venue and has won awards for cleanliness. Overlooking the beach is the Tate Gallery, one of scores of galleries around town, a testament to its renowned artistic community. Carrack Dhu is a minutes walk from the Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardens, and only three minutes from the Tate and Porthmeor beach. Other local attractions include ancient Pagan monuments, St.Michaels Mount, Lands End, Seal Sanctuary, or further afield, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Activities yo... more
