  • "We absolutely loved the house and Liz was the perfect host."

    Thank you Liz. The location is fantastic and facilities even better.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Chy Lowen and the facilities were very good."

    If there was anything we felt was lacking it was the fact there was no pasta dishes. All main meals had to be served on plates. Also, one or more bigger pans with lids would have been useful especially as we were cooking for 10 people.

  • "The property is much cliser to the caravan site than the pictures indicate."

    This became an issue when we used the hot tub late at night and were shouted at snd called rude names from the caravan residents. We were merely talking and laughing in the hot tub. This must be a regular problem with this property as the site contacted the property owner who cane round to tell us off ! We did not argue and got out of the hot tub. She also advised that we should not be in the hot tub after 9pm and that although the property took 10 adults the hot tub only allowed 6. Neither the curfew nor the hot tub max were made clear in the booking information. If you book a property with a hot tub you expect to be able to use it when you choose. The owner’s attitude was also unpleasant and she returned the following day - entered the back deck uninvited - and complained again and at length about the noise. She was patronising and this was unnecessary, spoiling the weekend. When you have paid £1800 for 2 nights in a property I think you should expect some privacy. It is a lovely house but we would not book it again and the restrictions and proximity to neighbouring properties should be made clear in the description.

    Chy Lowen is located in a residential area with holiday apartments nearby.I was called by the Park Manager as complaints of excessive noise had been received by other guests on the park. I attended and had to ask some of the party to leave the hot tub as it seats six not ten so was being over occupied. Unfortunately there had been an altercation with park guests due to the excessive noise level being made. Earlier requests had been made by neighbours with reference to noise, that were sadly ignored which then led to me being called out. The following morning I came to ask that this behaviour was not repeated in order to avoid any further confrontation and ensuing complaints. We want all our guests to enjoy our property and the beautiful surrounding area but ask guests to be considerate of other residents and holiday makers. Property Owner

  • "We arrived early but was told we could park at the property and explore St Ives, when we drove in Liz the owner was there and said the cleaning was done and we could go in."

    we looked upstairs first to see the view from the large balcony which was fantastic. The bedroom downstairs had an ensuite so my granddaughter went in there with her 1 year old daughter and partner. would recommend to anyone although St Ives has some very steep roads so need to be fit.

  • "A few things let this holiday down, firstly there was a building site next door, noise every day."

    The king size beds are just singles linked together so there is a big lip where they join. Every shower in the place was leaking around the shower head. We did not feel welcome at all, we met the owner on the day of arrival, we chatted but she was very weary of us as we were a group of 25 year olds and one baby it did not make us feel welcome at all. Parking is another thing, there is only a gap just wide enuff to fit your car through, have to monouver to fit the 4 cars on. Two out of the 4 cars scraped every day as there was a big pothole at the end of the drive causing a lip wich could not be avoided. Then you had to drive over two manhole covers that are bent with the weight of cars going over them as there only pedestrian rated. We also felt there shoils of been a grass area somewhere around the house especially for any children that visit. Overall very disappointed for the cost of the hoilday.

The property

Quite simply one of St Ives finest and most luxurious holiday homes set overlooking Porthmeor beach, the Atlantic ocean and the stunning north Cornwall coast.

Approached along a driveway in a residential area of the town, you experience the wow factor the moment you enter this magnificent home, and is a perfect setting for a family or group of friends.

Through the hallway into the extremely spacious living room with the floor to ceiling glass windows where the light floods in, there are amazing views whatever the weather.

With a superb kitchen area, a long table for all to sit around at mealtimes and large cosy sofas to relax and enjoy a film on the drop-down electric screen from the full HD projector with surround sound, this wonderful house has everything.

On the cooler evenings and winter nights enjoy the woodburner whilst enjoying a drink overlooking the bay and the ever-changing sea.

There are five bedrooms, all with TV's, and most with super king-size beds.

Both the master first floor and ground floor bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, whilst there is another bathroom on each of the floors.

On warm balmy evenings open the bi-fold doors and enjoy alfresco dining making use of the barbecue.

With the beaches, the Tate Gallery and the famous town with all its historic pubs and excellent restaurants all within walking distance, this superb property offers accommodation in a truly stunning location all year round.

The beach is only a short walk away and the fabulous coastal train, one of the most scenic in the country, runs from St Ives railway station, connecting you to the rest of Cornwall.
