  • “After reading a couple of recent reviews before arriving in August 2021 we were slightly disappointed with mentions of a decline in standards.”

    However when we arrived, those concerns were no more. A gorgeous apartment on the sea front with beautiful views, (you can see the beach and sea unlike the worry about overgrown trees) waking up to the sound of the ocean is one of the best bits of this holiday. The information provided before hand was spot on. The bollard was not broken and a great parking spot provided. The apartment is just over the road from the parking.

    However when we arrived, those concerns were no more. A gorgeous apartment on the sea front with beautiful views, (you can see the beach and sea unlike the worry about overgrown trees) waking up to the sound of the ocean is one of the best bits of this holiday. The information provided before hand was spot on. The bollard was not broken and a great parking spot provided. The apartment is just over the road from the parking. Key was in the safe at the allotted time and we were welcomed with fantastic facilities. Firstly I don’t think it’s fair to comment on value for money. This year we paid over £4000 for a week self catering, post pandemic and as a small business owner ourselves, understand that holiday let’s just like out selves we’re unable to trade for over 12 months. Summer holidays / high demand and trying to recoup money not earned for two seasons- we chose to pay a higher price. Is it worth it? To us it was! After not being on holiday since summer 2019 and working last summer until now to try and rebuild our own business it was worth that and more. On paper it’s not 5* luxury, but does have great facilities and having two small children- perfect. We felt as if we were on holiday 100% of the time even when we needed to be back in the apartment for the children. Weather - what a scorcher it was. St Ives - we have booked for next year the same dates and prices have come down we enjoyed it that much and location is perfect! Bleaches rival those in the Caribbean- and we have decided to stick to UK breaks for the next few years after seeing the potential and ease with little ones. We were proactive and booked a home delivery slot a few weeks in advance so no messing about carrying shopping, didn’t manage to eat out because St Ives was probably the most busy it’s been in history! We were able to cook, enjoy on the balcony and grab a fish and chips on the pier. There was a mention about the cleaning standards not being great, it was fine. Beds made up nicely, lots of towels and the balcony windows did need a good clean. Grabbed a bucket of soapy water and a sqeegie and had a great view all week. We were travelling with two small children so a glass cleaner was a must and I did need to clean the windows (due to children anyway on a daily basis) it was quickly sorted but agree the price paid - it should have been spotless. I wouldn’t dwell on that it’s a great place. Sad to leave and the apartment has that much- I would pack less next year. Washing machine , beach accessories picnic bits were all there. We hardly needed anything. It would be nice to have a selection of cleaning products to keep on top of things over the stay but again Tesco is just up the road. Balcony area is lovely, lift access to apartment and beach just below. St Ives isn’t really designed for peaks, so baby carry if you can. It was also so busy, it was impossible to enjoy the eating out scene or even manage to get a takeaway most nights as this needs to be pre booked. Beach is quiet early and gets busy 11 onwards but everyone on holiday is lovely! People are great and after worrying it wasn’t going to be that great we didn’t want to leave. 10/10 for the experience from the Barlow’s - summer 2021 travelling with a 3 year old and 18 month old. Thank you

    - Mrs Barlow, August 2021
