Arguably one of Cornwall’s best known coastal towns, St Ives is a dream destination for holidays by the sea. If its quaint boutique-lined streets and wonderful atmosphere don’t draw you in, its beautiful beaches, iconic harbour and pristine bay most certainly will, so it’s easy to see why visitors the world over would choose to stay here year in and year out.

In the heart of St Ives lies the sought-after Downalong, the oldest and most historic part of the town which is characterised by a tangle of narrow cobbled streets, granite cottages and whitewashed stone, and it’s here that you’ll discover the superb Mariners Cottage. Sleeping six guests it is set over three floors and includes a lovely open plan living room with amply equipped kitchen on the lower and a large separate dining room and double bedroom on the first. The top floor is where you’ll find the second double bedroom as well as a twin, and with every bedroom having its own en-suite, the cottage couldn’t be more versatile or better suited to both families and groups of friends.

Tastefully furnished and decorated, the rooms are light, bright and airy thanks to whitewashed original stone and a calming colour scheme of blues and naturals. Beautifully designed for all seasons, a feature gas fire in the lounge keeps things cosy during the cooler months while sash windows throughout the property can be flung open to let the sea air in during the warmer ones.

Besides a fabulous foodie scene and plethora of wonderful blue flag beaches, there are plenty of attractions in St Ives for those fabulous days out, all of which are on the property's doorstep. The Tate St Ives perches right beside Porthmeor Beach, so you can take in some of that famous art scene and then step out onto the sand, or if you fancy a walk you’ll have many great coast paths to choose from including the 1.9km route to Carbis Bay. Further afield but easily reached by car lie the villages / towns of Lelant, Hayle and Gwithian, each with their own great atmospheres and fantastic sandy beaches.

Welcome to St Ives

There’s something special about holidays in St Ives and we just can’t quite put our fingers on it. It could be the beautiful light that’s attracted artists to the resort for generations, the cobbled streets and coastal views…or that feeling of being a world away from the hustle and bustle. Whatever it is, St Ives has a charm that’s unlike any other, and we’d recommend it at any time of year.

More about St Ives


The property does not have three usable bathrooms

This property is quite shabby in places and could do with a proper clean. The bathroom in the top floor bathroom (the one with the bath) is not fit for use. The shower only has cold water coming out of it, despite a plumber attending during our stay and attempting to fix the problem. There is peeling plaster on the upper floor walls and the property is overdue a renovation.

Guest, 17 Sep 2023

Hi Joe, Thank you for leaving a review on your recent stay. We are sorry to hear of these issues, I can confirm the bathroom has now been fixed and we were not aware of the bathroom issues before your stay. I have passed on your comments about the cleanliness and peeling plaster and this will be rectified for future guests. We do hope to welcome you to stay with Luxury Coastal again in the future. Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team
