The house is excellent

So well appointed, it has everything and more. Cannot fault it for anything. We came here as a family for a special occasion, it really helped to make the stay special.

The Hall Family

It’s a house for all seasons!

We had three families stay for a week and enjoyed beautiful sunny weather and the house. Having a TV in each room was a luxury, loved the kitchen area which allowed people to hang out there. Great café by the surfers beach – good to check out. A fantastic rental home.

Mariners is a beautiful Georgian house located in the Westcott’s Quay conservation area of St Ives, Cornwall. We aim to meet the needs of all of our guests, but due to the nature of the property and its location on the old medieval route into St Ives, access may be difficult for guests with limited mobility and the house is unsuitable for wheelchair users.

Mariners is located in Skidden Gardens and the front of the property is accessed from Skidden Hill down a stepped path through the front garden. The back door of the house, however, opens out on to a level path that leads to the road where the gradient is more gentle and very soon becomes a moderately level access to the shops, restaurants and beaches.

The sitting room is located on the ground floor looking on to the garden and has a woodburner. If children are in the house then the fireguard must be used at all times. There are four steps down to the kitchen/dining area. The main staircase up from the sitting room leads to the first floor, with one king size bedroom and one bunk room (small double with single above), each looking over the gardens to the front, and one double size bedroom with a raised bed and its own balcony looking towards the church and the Island. The bathroom is also located on the first floor, with a bath and separate shower. Stairs from the landing lead up to the second floor where there is a double bedroom looking over the gardens to the front. The master bedroom is also located on the second floor and has a four poster bed and an ensuite shower room. The master bedroom also has its own balcony with beautiful views towards the harbour. A small staircase up from the master bedroom leads to a mezzanine level where there is an office area and further fabulous views towards the harbour.
