What we like about this property

This bright and sunny Cornish studio is located in characterful Downalong, in the heart of artsy St Ives. It has easy access to the picturesque fishing town’s galleries and restaurants, close proximity to award-winning beaches (it’s only a few minutes from Porthgwidden Beach), as well as everything else the region has to offer – from Tate St Ives to great surfing. This is a gorgeous little vacation home for rent in Cornwall, ideal for a couple.

Description

This studio is inspired by the beautiful sandy beaches of Cornwall as well as its artistic and creative heritage. It’s situated in Downalong, in the heart of the St Ives, minutes from the town’s restaurants and art galleries, but is also only a stone’s throw from Porthgwidden Beach.

A light interior with a large picture window, white walls and wooden elements is brightened even further by golden accents – from fabrics to light fittings and soleil mirrors. We love the retro feel of the furnishings and the macrame plant hangers.

The flat is small but makes great use of space. The open-plan living room leads into a kitchen, while the bedroom and shower room are tucked out of sight. Large windows open out onto a lovely terrace with expansive views of the Cornish coast. This is a charming vacation home for rent in Cornwall, perfect for a couple.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

These include Smart TV with freeview, free wifi, Nespresso coffee machine, underfloor heating, washer/dryer, and dishwasher. The king-sized bed has a Hypnos mattress and Egyptian cotton bed linen. The kitchen is fully equipped and designed by Dorset-based David Restorick. The bathroom has organic amenities by Pure Nuff Stuff and fluffy towels. There is a private parking space.

A welcome hamper is stocked with Cornish goodies. Concierge service is available, offering picnic hampers, fridge stocking, restaurant reservations and more. For bookings of one week or more, one breakfast for two at the award-winning Trevose Harbour House is included* (see notes section for details).

AROUND

St Ives is one of Cornwall’s most popular and best-known holiday destinations. An old (but still functioning) fishing town with tiny cobbled streets, St Ives is also known for its excellent beaches, with golden sands, blue waters and great views. The town has many great cafés and restaurants, but is most famous for its many art galleries, workshops and studios. Don’t miss Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum, Bernard Leach Pottery, St Ives Art School, and the many other art and cultural centres.

Each year, the St Ives September Festival celebrates the town’s artistic heritage. It runs through the middle two weeks of September with jazz, blues, folk sessions, classical concerts and arts events. There are also gallery open days when local artists open their studios to the public, as well as talks, lectures, poetry readings and workshops.

    There are so many good things we could say about staying at the Studio. However, to keep this short and sweet, the apartment is everything that is promised on the website, beautiful, stylish, clean, well equipped, and exactly like the photos on the internet. The location is perfect for accessing everything you need. It’s about 30 seconds walk from Porthgwidden Beach, and just a few minutes walk from the harbour, with all its restaurants, bars, and shops. And in the other direction, just a few minutes walk from Porthmeor Beach. Porthminster Beach is a little further, but still close, and within short walking distance. Finally, saving the best thing for last, Angela and Olivier were awesome. From start to finish, they were extremely helpful and friendly. They really went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect. They took the time to talk to us properly, giving the whole stay a very personal touch, and making us feel we could go to them for anything we needed, and even recommending and booking the best restaurants for us. Also, the inclusive breakfast at Trovose Harbour House was so good, we actually made a booking to go back a second time. As you can probably tell, we were extremely happy with everything, and would definitely recommend staying at the Studio, or indeed Trovose Harbour House. We hope to return again in the near future.

    The Studio is tucked away in a quiet location directly behind Porthgwidden Beach. With a wonderful away-from-it-all feel, enhanced by a stunning sea-view through the wall of window that graces the spacious living area, it is situated close to the main attractions of St Ives, including the beautiful harbour to the east and the spectacular Porthmoer surfing beach to the west. Combining comfort with style, we found the Studio to be the perfect place to relax and marvel at the changing sea-scape.

    St Ives is a town that I know and love and it was such a delight to stay in this stunning mid century apartment. The apartment is newly refurnished with exquisite attention to detail, including lovingly re upolstered mid century furniture and high end fixtures and fittings. The lovely, attentive owners provide a wonderful conciege service, recommending restaurants and walks and even providing a delicious breakfast in their hotel in town. The fact the apartment is owned by hoteliers is apparent in the spotless appearence, high quality sheets and towels and the lovely little extra touches such as throws to use on while sitting on the balcony and the offer of additional services such as picnic hampers. The apartment is in the heart of St Ives and the views of the sea are uninterupted. I will absolutely be returning here on my next trip to St Ives.

  • Elspeth W, June 2, 2017

    St Ives offers many places to stay, but it’s hard to find somewhere with such individual style and taste coupled with such stunning sea views. The welcome hamper was a great way to start the trip. Breakfast can be taken inside or outside on the balcony, depending on the weather. A very special breakfast is also offered at Trevose Harbour House (sister property) for one morning during our stay. Delicious! The hosts, Angela and Olivier are welcoming and can offer tips on where to go and where to eat. The bedroom is super comfortable, with ample space to hang clothes and cosy dressing gowns ready and waiting. The bathroom has a stylish, roomy shower and all you will need for a getaway. Sands Studio has been designed with care and great attention to detail. The location of the property is ideal for beach, restaurants and shopping.

    This apartment is a true delight to stay in. Beautifully decorated and appointed with glorious views out over the sea. All is exceptionally high quality and the service offered by the owners follows through. Cannot recommend the experience enough.
