The perfect cottage to spend Christmas in St Ives!

Great cottage, lovely spot! Definately recommend!

The Denhams

Very lovely & unique property

Excellent location especially for the beaches (even the dog agrees!) 🙂

The Bradleys - Sept 2018

The house is excellently furnished and was a wonderful position for lots of exploring.

We always enjoy our time spent here and this time was no different. What a wonderful stay in a perfect location.

Red Sails is a perfect cottage for a small family/2 couples.

The location is spot on; close to the harbour, Porthmeor and Porthwidden beaches and the main shops, bars and restaurants but quiet, on a pedestrianised street. The cottage was immaculate on arrival and very well equipped. We will definitely return. A 5* property.
