"Coast ws one of the best apartments we have been in,everything we wanted was there and the views and location excellent, could not fault the apartment for cleanliness and administration was also excellent."R. Bakewell
"My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Coast.It was very comfortable,warm,extremely clean and well kitted out with all the mod con's (some of which didnt even look like they had been used yet: ie the wii). We loved the view out to sea and the proximity to St Ives harbour and town centre and really could not fault it at all... As we were only there for three days we just enjoyed the pubs and shops of the town and only had one trip out which was taking the coast road round to Lands-end and Sennan cove which we enjoyed,especially meeting the "Landsend cat" he was a little star!! "
"Coast was a delight. It was difficult to leave the comfy sofas with the everchanging views of the sea, and we looked forward to returning to the warm spacious apartment to enjoy cooking in the well equiped kitchen. All the facilites were squeaky clean and they provided everything needed for a relaxing holiday. We enjoy walking the coastal paths around The Godrevy Lighthouse and visiting the National Trust cafe where the food, sevice and views are superb. Another favourite eating place is the Fish restaurant on Fore Street. We visited the Eden Project, about one hours drive away, I would recommend this to anyone. It is a wonderful place that has something for everyone."N. Wright
