  • "The Sail Loft is beautifully decorated, lovingly furnished and very clean."

    We have had a very relaxing holiday with our grown-up kids and our family dog. We visited quite a few of our usual places such as Newquay, Falmouth, Truro and new places such as Penzance which we travelled to by train. Wished we had used the train earlier on in our holiday as I think we would have used it more. We normally stay at Portreath but it has been brilliant to be able to have St Ives as a base as opposed to somewhere we would just visit for a few hours. We enjoyed visiting the Tate Gallery the views of St Ives from inside the building are definitely worth seeing.

  • "Great was extremely helpful and made us feel incredibly welcome."

    We actually have our own flat in Back Road East that we had already rented out, and we both agree that the standard of communications and information that Greta and Sykes provided was excellent. The house itself is perfectly located and the furnishing very tasteful and warm. I hope you don't mind but the only thing that we felt should be upgraded was the TV. Tech has moved so quickly over the last few years and I think a new smart TV would fit in well in such a great cottage. Many thanks Simon and Vivien

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback - and you were right, our TV was very outdated! Your feedback has prompted us to install a shiny new Smart TV. Thanks again and best wishes, Greta Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at the 'Sail Loft'."

    The property is perfectly placed in St Ives for access to all the town has to offer. The Sail loft was clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed for a happy holiday. The complementary cream tea at 'Olives' was a real treat! Thank you to Greta, the owner, who's communication and helpfulness was excellent!

  • "Fantastic location, the cleanest cottage I think I’ve ever stayed in."

    Very comfy beds everything you need and the cream tea at Olives was a lovely treat. We would love to stay next summer but as the price is almost double for the same week this won’t be possible which is sad

  • "Really great location within walking distance of everything St Ives has to offer."

    Comfortable and welcoming, and very useful to have a parking space even though it is a gentle 10 minute walk away. We enjoyed our break and would love to return.

  • "Home from home, a great place to stay and having several beaches in walking distance is ideal."

    We hope to return - the parking spot is a bonus and allowed us to walk off the pasties and cream teas

  • "Fantastic value for money: we really enjoyed staying at the The Sail Loft."

    It did feel a little bit like being on a boat but that was all part of the fun of the accommodation. The owner, Greta, provided lots of useful information before our arrival and Geraldine, the house keeper, was also very helpful. The location is great, close to the the harbour but also quiet, the beds are amazingly comfortable and the little extras were an additional treat. Having the use of a parking space in St Ives is like gold dust and the complimentary cream tea at Olive's Cafe was delicious. We had a great holiday with St Ives working it's Cornish magic once again!
