Town house in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Great location 5 minutes from Porthmeor beach
About Vanessa Dain
We are a local St Ives family who moved here from Tunbridge wells as we fell in love with the town after holidaying here for many years. Myself my husband and twins love the opportunities that living by the sea can offer such as sailing, surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding.
Vanessa Dain purchased this House in 2008
Why Vanessa Dain chose Saint Ives
We moved to St Ives after holidaying here ourselves since we were young and felt it was the perfect place to bring up our twins. We hardly use our car as everything in St Ives is within walking distance of the house. It’s a very special place, and the Cornish people are lovely friendly and relaxed.
What makes this House unique
Our property is perfectly located with convenient access to the beaches, shops and restaurants of St Ives. The property also has a driveway for 3 cars which allows you to come and go at your leisure to the many Cornish tourist attractions if you fancy a day out. We have equipped the home with many extras to keep the adults and children amused such as DVD's, games, books, beach toys, boogie boards, Wii console, WiFi, 2 x 42" Smart TV's downstairs and 2 X TV's in the double and King bedroom, and DVD players. If you have little ones in your group we also have a travel cot and a travel high chair that attaches to a normal chair.

Perfect for a family holiday with 2 dogs.
The property was clean and spacious and it was perfect for the 6 of us and for our 2 dogs. There isn't an enclosed garden, but there is a field directly opposite specifically for dogs so our old dog didn't have to walk up and down a hill to get exercise. The owner was very helpful on the phone and very welcoming and reassuring so I felt able to relax. St Ives is gorgeous and the house is within very easy reach of the beach and the gallery. I got very fit going up and down the hill to the sea. There is a very convenient corner shop nearby. I really loved this holiday house and really want to return.
Home from home
We have had a wonderful time the property is ideal everything you need and if not Vanessa made sure it was unfortunately a couple of people found the hills getting in and out of the town difficult to access mainly coming up so we used the taxi service by the cinema. His worked brilliantly and financially workable as you save so much money on being able to park at the house. We would definitely book the house again.
Lovely home- great location, caters for all ages
We spent a fantastic long weekend at Ocean Ayr. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children! Great location for lovely beach and harbour walks. Vanessa was very helpful and friendly. Thank-you!
Nice property for a family visit
We were 4 adults and one dog staying and the house was very charming. Much nicer with the extra space on offer compared to a B&B. The property also had parking which was a bonus as parking in St Ives is a bit of a premium. There were a number of board games and TV games that no doubt children would have enjoyed. Unfortunately the weather was a bit damp so we didn’t manage to sit outside on the balcony more than once. We enjoyed our stay here and would happily stay here again. It is like a home from home. Thank you Vanessa for sharing your home.
Very enjoyable stay
From the moment we arrived we felt at home, a selection of local goodies were waiting for us on arrival, even some for the dog. A good informative pack on the house and area. Large extended 3 story town house with nice furniture and modern decor, very comfortable house. Lovely views especially from the two large double bedrooms. Balcony nice for late afternoon evening sun and drink. Plenty in the house to entertain all ages. Walk times on description genuine and that's with a 1 & 70 year old. Very pleasant and helpful owner. Would stay again if returning to St Ives.
Porthmeor Beach and the town are just a five minute walk away and there are a total of five sandy beaches & the harbour all within a 10 minute walk from your front door.
Either by car or you can get a train into St Ives station then a very short 3 minute taxi ride.
St Ives Harbour and town centre with all its restaurants and shops is 5-10 minute walk away.
