Step Inside

Located in the heart of St Ives historic Downalong area on Island Road, 'Ahoy There' is certainly well placed for exploring one of the UK's favourite coastal towns. 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 renovation throughout.  The front door opens into the newly re-furbished lounge area with a large 3 seater sofa, chair with footstool, window seat and large square seat.  The fireplace has been re-designed and a log burner fitted, along with additional artwork and mood lighting. 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 surf boards and bikes can be locked up.

From your Holiday Door

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!

We had a really great week at Ahoy There! The property is very comfortable and it is clear that a lot of thought has been put into the planning of the interiors. Its location is ideal for easy walking access to Porthmeor beach, The Island and the town. The top floor balcony 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. We had not booked with Cornish Gems before and were delighted with their efficiency and help.
