An ideally situated house for the beach and to go into St Ives itself for pubs and shops. A spacious house with a lovely open plan kitchen / dining room so great if you cooking/entertaining with family / friends. Master bedroom is spacious with lovely super king bed. Added bonus of a small backyard with shower ; handy for coming in off the beach or if you have dogs.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. It really felt like a home from home. Just a very short walk to the beach which is perfect for families and surfers to enjoy. We even saw a beautiful seal there one afternoon! The cottage is very close to restaurants and shops in the town. We visited St Nicholas Chapel on the hill which is just a five minute walk away, the views from up there are breathtaking. The cottage has a little courtyard area with outside shower which was really useful. The cottage is a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the best of Cornwall. We hope to return again next year. Billie and Sam at Orange Roofs were very helpful with advice about anything we needed, nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend both Orange Roofs and this cottage.

An excellent property for our family, very spacious and everything was to a high specification. The outside space was especially useful and we enjoyed having our morning coffee chatting to passers by on the bench at the front. All the bedrooms were really spacious and the mattresses were just perfect - we all slept really well. Overall a great family home to use for a holiday which is well located for the beach and shops.

Thank you Orange Roofs for your excellent communication throughout. You were extremely thorough in giving us all the information as clearly as possible. Thank you also for the starter pack - milk ( for that much needed cuppa on arrival ) fudge and Prosecco! The house suited all our needs, it was very comfortable and well stocked. It was so convenient for everything - the beaches, the local store, the shops etc. Sadly, we didn't realise that all the restaurants, bars and pubs would be booked for weeks in advance but we compensated by having takeaways on the beach watching the sunset. We have stayed in St.Ives many times but this was by far our best find and we would love to return. Thank you!

1Porthmeor was perfect for our family, close to the beach and town. The house was clean and very well equipped. Bedding and towels were beautifully clean and the outside shower made coming from the beach so much easier. The team at Orange Roofs were great, helping us to arrange parking, keeping us up to date in relation to Covid 19 restrictions within the town and also making sure we had all the details in relation to check in times etc. The only downside were the seagulls, very noisy, they don't appear to need any sleep!! Looking forward to going back next year.

We stayed in 1 porthmeor Rd cottage for a week . And from booking to leaving we had nothing but great communications with Sam and the team. The cottage was a stone's throw from Porthmeor surfing beach which is a beautiful beach and has fabulous sunsets. Also a couple of minutes walk from the wharf,the town and porthgwidden beach. The cottage was bright spacious and spotlessly clean. And had everything in it we needed for a perfect weeks stay.also great that the dog was also welcome and the bonus of Bamaluz dog beach just a few minutes walk away Thanks Orange Roofs we cannot fault you. Highly recommend you x
