    “Parking not acceptable.”


    The location of this property is great and the views are lovely but there’s a few points that need highlighting for future people looking to book. PROS: Flat itself is clean and well kitted out. Some lovely extras like biscuits and tea and coffee. Sky TV and good Wi-Fi signal. Location is brilliant and very short walk to Porthmeor beach, harbour and main shops. Views are outstanding. CONS: Firstly access for unloading the car is only possible via a very steep narrow lane which is also a dead end. It’s very hard to get down there due to the nature of the lane and other people trying the same thing. Secondly and importantly is the parking isn’t acceptable. It’s not close and a good steep walk to it but more importantly as it’s just a gravel bit of land there is not enough room for all the cars. I was blocked in by other cars and couldn’t open my doors to access my car or move it for a planned day trip thus affecting our holiday experience. This really needs to change. Due to the poor access to unload I also spent time ferrying bags back and fore which took a long time. The bathrooms are wet rooms and so if you shower in the morning the whole floor is wet all day when using the toilets or sinks. Balcony has a cracking view but is very tiny with hardly any room to move. The location itself is brilliant but steep as are the stairs in the property so wouldn’t be great for some older people. I appreciate a lot of these issues are expected with a location like St Ives but it should be made known on the website. It’s worth saying that while the parking issue couldn’t be resolved the service we received when we contacted Sykes was very good. I wouldn’t book again unless the parking issue was changed and clearly pictured what the new space was on the listing. I also think pictures of the access to the property should be added as trying to reverse down that steep narrow lane would not be pleasant for some people hence why I didn’t try it.
