Whether you are a seasoned St Ives traveller or haven't stayed before, 'Ahoy There' should be high on your shortlist - as it won't disappoint!  Located in the heart of St Ives' historic Downalong area on Island Road, 'Ahoy There' ticks many boxes as it offers; 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, wifi, sheltered balcony off the master bedroom suite, small sit out area off the kitchen with bench seat (to name but a few features).  This fabulous holiday home has been tastefully decorated throughout and is approx 250 metres from Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches and The Island public carpark.

The Property

Located in the heart of St Ives' historic Downalong area on Island Road, 'Ahoy There' is certainly well placed for accessing the many delights of the UK's favourite coastal town. Whether it's a day on the beach, a meal out at one of the many cosmopolitan restaurants or a peruse around a gallery or independant boutique - everything you could possibly wish for is within easy reach of the cottage.  Arranged over 3 floors, 'Ahoy There' has undergone an extensive refurbishment throughout.  The front door opens into the lounge area with a 3 seater leather sofa, 2 leather tub chairs and leather pouffe.  A small staircase leads down to the spacious kitchen and breakfast room which boasts all the appliances you'd expect to see in a 5 star holiday cottage including; dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, double range oven with gas hob, combined washing machine/tumble dryer and microwave.  A stable door leads outside from the kitchen, where you'll find a bench seat and an area where bikes can be locked up.

We had a really great week here. The property is very comfortable and it is clear that a lot of thought has been put into the planning of it. It is equipped to a high standard. Its location is ideal for easy walking access to Porthmeor beach, The Island and the town. The balcony on the top floor was a lovely bonus. 

A staircase leads from the lounge to the bedroom accommodation and bathrooms.  On the first floor there are two bedrooms both with en-suite facilities as well a convenient separate WC.  One bedroom boasts a 6ft super king 'zip & lock' bed (which can be split into 2 single beds upon request at the time of booking) with en-suite shower room.  The other bedroom is a twin room with 2 x 3ft single beds and an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower over.  A further staircase leads from the first floor landing to the top floor master bedroom suite.  This spacious contemporary bedroom suite is a cleverly crafted loft conversion which features new exposed beams, an en-suite shower room and a sheltered sit out balcony.  Although you can't quite see the sea you can see the headland above Porthmoer beach where the sun sets, so you are sure to witness some fabulous sunset colours (as it faces west).  A strategically placed Velux window offers a view of St Nicholas' Chapel perched on the top of 'The Island', the renowned peninsula between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches.  All 3 bedrooms offer quality beds and mattresses and wall mounted TV's.  Due to the versatile nature of the sleeping accommodation, 'Ahoy There' is suitable for couples or families alike.  Be one of the first to enjoy the many benefits of this gorgeous coastal cottage, like us - you will simply love it!

Great long weekend at a home from home. Many thanks.


Ahoy There has to be one of the best places to stay in St. Ives. Close to all the beaches and the town centre.


The apartment met all expectations.

Tracy Maidment

We had a really great week here. The property is very comfortable and it is clear that a lot of thought has been put into the planning of it. It is equipped to a high standard and we found it very safe for our 6 year old grandson. Its location is ideal for easy walking access to Porthmeor beach, The Island and the town. The balcony on the top floor was a lovely bonus. We have stayed in St Ives many, many times over the years and this was the best property we have stayed in so far. We had not booked with Cornish Gems before and were delighted with their efficiency and help.

Suzanne Baker

Extremely happy with the service provided by Cornish Gems - all very professional and obliging.

Francesca James

Fabulous property beautifully furnished.

Andrew Gray

The property was excellent, very clean, extremely comfortable and with a very high standard of equipment and fittings - we were overwhelmed by the standard and quality of the property having stayed in many properties in St Ives this was by far the best.
