An excellent choice of self-catering properties in St Ives, chosen by seasoned St Ives residents.
8 Camaret Drive St Ives Cornwall TR26 2BE 07741499315
Owned and run by our friends who run the excellent Nook boutique guesthouse a short walk from the centre of town, Escape to St Ives is a self-catering outfit dedicated to seeking out and renting some of the resort's best self-catering properties. Uniquely, they are entirely focused on the town, but they are also deliberately diverse, with a choice of changeover days (Friday or Saturday) and properties that include everything from an architect-designed five-bedroom high above the town centre, with fabulous sea views from two balconies, to a light and airy two-bedroom first floor apartment in the grade-2-listed former customs house bang in the town centre – and there's plenty of choice in between these two extremes. Rentals include linen and towels, wifi, and usually TV, DVD players and all the stuff you need for rainy as well as sunny days in beautiful St Ives.
