  • "Under-floor heating didn't work the radiators only tepid even on maximum number 5"

    The heating system at Louie’s Loft is without fault, only 11 months old and has both gas central heating and electric underfloor heating, making it capable of comfortably heating a property twice its size. It would have been better if instead of contacting Carbis Bay Holidays after you left the property (in an attempt to get a substantial discount), you phoned them when you first arrived so they could have then sent a member of their team to show you how to adjust the heating, even though it is clearly shown in the owners handbook. We are disappointed it spoiled your stay, but this wouldn’t have happened if you had contacted the holiday company in the first place. Kind regards, The Property Owner Property Owner

  • "We spent a lovely few days at Louies Loft."

    The apartment was tasteful, comfortable, warm and had everything we needed, not to mention those spectacular sea views! Previous guests have mentioned parking, but there is very reasonable parking at Porthmeor Beach and Island car parks, both within a few minutes walk. The only downside was the fact that the promised access door from the property directly onto the beach has been nailed shut and boarded up for the winter. Sykes Cottages do not mention this in the property spec, and when I queried it, stated they did not know the door is closed and that it is not their responsibility to know! My suggestion of a small goodwill discount for this lack of communication and inconvenience caused was met by Sykes with a flat-out refusal. It rather soured our experience despite the beautiful accommodation. So please do be aware, if the beach access (on this popular surfers beach) is important to you - you.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed the apartment and it had everything you needed. We do apologies the private beach access door was closed during your stay, this was closed by the property management team of the development. The door has been closed for winter due to the bad weather conditions. Despite this we do hope you had a wonderful holiday and we hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    After driving 6-7 hrs you don't want to spend another hr trying to find a parking space.

    We hope to return.

  • "Really enjoyed our 7 night stay in this beautiful property."

    We have stayed in many holiday lets around St Ives and this has to be the BEST location and view we’ve had. The sliding doors and balcony are something very special and it made our holiday to wake up to the sand and sea each morning. The apartment is very small and compact but has everything you could need in terms of comfort. The storage space was very well thought out and apart from long hanging wardrobe space we had everything we needed to put all our belongings away without feeling cluttered. The kitchen is really well equipped with dishwasher, microwave and a good size fridge/freezer. Beds were very comfy-our children especially enjoyed the novelty of bunk beds. My only suggestion would be to have a better hoover- it was ok to pick up bits of grains of sand etc but it didn’t seem to work on the rug in the lounge or the mat at the front door (maybe something a bit more powerful).

    Thank you for taking your time to leave feedback, it’s much appreciated. We are very pleased to hear you really enjoyed your stay in Louie's Loft, we will be sure to pass your suggestion onto the owner for their consideration. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Gorgeous property!"

    Well equipped with everything we needed , blinds are needed at the front bifold doors for privacy in the evening and balcony furniture would have been nice . Had a lovely stay

    Dear Patricia, We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the property and were supplied with everything that you needed for your stay. Regarding the balcony furniture, due to the bifolding doors, we wouldn't be able to supply any furniture that would allow the easy opening and closing of the doors. However, we hope that you can still enjoy the stunning views using the furniture provided at the front of the property. We hope to welcome you back to Cornwall in the near future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "One of our best St Ives stays!"

    The property has been renovated to a very high standard with all the latest equipment. The block is very quiet and set back from the main road with its own front door. The direct beach access is a god send especially with young children. The best thing - the view from the balcony is amazing and we spent many an evening enjoying the sun set over the bay. Everything was as described and fully equipped for everything you would need. A couple of points to pick up for the owner - whilst the view from the balcony is divine - it can become overly bright and hot in the evenings so some blinds would be a welcome addition. We also found the window didn’t open in the bedroom which made it very stuffy (especially as the kids room has no windows so sleeping areas became very warm). A way of cooling the bedrooms will be v important - it was 15 degrees when we were there and the rooms were hot so in summer this will become uncomfortable. Overall - 5 Stars!! Definitely recommend for a family of 4 and location is unbeatable.

    Thank you for your fabulous feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property, location and your stay! If you have any issues like this during your stay please contact us and one of the local team will be able to assist you straight away. Thank you again for your comments which have been taken on board and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

The property

This contemporary, first-floor apartment sits in a modern development in the popular harbour town of St Ives.

Boasting panoramic sea views over Porthmeor beach, Louies Loft provides a first-class escape for a family of four looking to holiday in Cornwall.

Enter the apartment and head into the open-plan living space and immediately you will be drawn to the stunning beach views.

The kitchen boasts everything you could possibly need, including Neff and Smeg appliances, Porcelanosa tiles, and top-notch hacienda black oak, providing the perfect environment to prepare, cook and enjoy mealtimes as a family.

Serve up the fruits of your labour at the dining table before sinking into the sumptuous settee and tuning into the 55” Smart TV.

Watch the sunset from the balcony, boasting spectacular seaside views as you enjoy a glass of your favourite beverage, and in the cooler months, the glass doors provide a wonderful backdrop for the living area.

Head to the bedrooms to lay your rest, including a king-size with Smart TV and bunk room.

Both bedrooms have Jack-and-Jill access to the shower room, featuring stunning tiling and a rainfall shower.

The Porthmeor Beach, a sanctuary for watersports and surfing, can be accessed from the development through a residence door, while St. Ives Harbour is only a short stroll away; here you can spend the days people watching and appreciating a variety of boats that draw into the dock.

St. Ives offers a selection of tasty eateries and independent shops, and lunch at the oldest pub in St. Ives, The Sloop Pub, is a must, and you can stock up at the Norway Stores, a 100 metre walk from the property.

Lace up your walking boots and trail the South West Coast Path before wandering into the centre of St Ives to find a pub for a refreshing pint and bit of grub.

There’s also a wealth of fantastic restaurants to sample, including The Rum & Crab Shack for the catch of the day, Pedn Olva with a sun terrace for alfresco meals, and Porthminster Beach Café.

Be sure to explore the wonders of Tate St. Ives and the sculptures of the Barbara Hepworth Museum, a must for the artists of the group, whilst those seeking a bit of fun can head to the Paradise Park and Jungle Barn Cornwall for a great day out!

Choose Louies Loft for a sleek escape to this bustling Cornish destination.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

Penzance 6 miles.

With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort.
