View Room Information
This lovely home sits right in the heart of St Ives and has been newly renovated for 2022. Within walking distance of the town's best beaches and restaurants as well as being close to the train station, it offers guests a superbly located, easy to reach base from which to explore the surrounding coast and area. Whether you’re looking for a spacious romantic getaway or a dog-friendly holiday home with all the room and versatility to accommodate a large group, the flexible layout and design of the house makes it perfect for couples, groups of friends and large families.

A luxury retreat set over three floors, the Ryb By The Sea has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment so along with its array of modern features, you’ll find all the old-world charm of a traditional St Ives period cottage. Beautiful bay windows boasting vintage glass panes frame the modern living space where contemporary seating offers a fantastic area to unwind in, and the open plan dining room is the perfect spot for sharing meals or discussing the day’s plans over breakfast. On wet-weather-days guests can indulge in a movie or watch their favourite sports channel on one of the home’s four smart TV's (which are spread throughout the property), and a cosy loft snug means both adults and children get to enjoy their own space.

Boasting a fully fitted kitchen and separate utility the house is a perfect for entertaining in, and on warm days the private roof terrace is ideal for drinks in the sunshine or summery evening gatherings. Four elegant bedrooms, all with sumptuous linen and soft furnishings, create quiet spaces to retreat to after days spent exploring the coast, and the spacious new master en-suite with large rainfall shower and a free-standing bath, is a gorgeous sanctuary for couples or parents in need of their own privacy.

Centrally located, there are art galleries and boutique shops mere metres from the front door, and guests with dogs in tow have *St Ives Harbour Beach just two minutes walk away. Further along is the lesser-known but blissfully dog-friendly *Bamaluz Beach; which is frequented mainly by locals and is a great space for four legged companions to stretch their legs.

*Seasonal dog restrictions on some of the beaches in the area apply

**A travel cot and highchair are available but must be requested prior to arrival

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.
