We had a lovely stay over the Easter weekend. Libby's Cottage is beautifully presented with thoughtful decor and amenities. Super easy to find and in the heart of St Ives. Lovely welcome gifts on arrival too. As others have mentioned, there is no parking at the house but Lisa provided easy online options so I had that organised before we got there. Overall a wonderful stay and we'll certainly be back!

We were pleased to find this cottage lat minite after our holiday abroad had been cancelled at the airport.
The cottage is central just at the back of Fore St, and surprisingly peaceful. It had all we needed. Lisa was attentive and text back quickly if i had a query. Had a great family time on the beach. Thanks to whoever left the bodyboards. Our 6yr old grandson loved it.

Gilly

Amazing place to stay with everything at the doorstep, the best bakery & restaurants a short walk away.

The balcony studio..

The Balcony Studio flawlessly marries a fashionable laid back interior along with the original quirks and features of this traditional harbour front property. 

The unforgettable sea views as you sleep from the indulgent bedroom from a four poster super king bed with waves crashing at your feet, remote control curtains mean you don’t need to get up from your bed to admire each days new view. Glass panels in the hardwood oak floor look down into a magnificent William Holland Alvius spa bath from the bedroom. Big enough for four this bath has been made specially from tin to honour North Cornwall's rich tin mining heritage.

The spa bathroom includes couples rainfall showers, William Holland Alvius spa bath and “his and her” basins to match and a separate wet suit shower and drying room. Look up from the bath through glass panels into the bedroom above, or chill underneath the original porthole with views of Godrevy Lighthouse.

A brand new kitchen, complete with induction hob, beautiful SMEG fridge/freezer and wine fridge that is complemented by a separate island where you can dine if you decide not to visit one of the nearby stunning restaurants that are just a short walk away.

A listed property with historical significance on the front line of St Ives harbour “the balcony” of this property offers unsurpassed views and has been used by artists for decades to paint and capture this magical view. The balcony itself is an old wooden cantilever balcony that is a listed feature of St Ives and must be protected unaltered for historical reasons. While it is perfectly safe for adults to use it does require a degree of mobility to access. The access is by climbing over a knee high old stone lintel that forms part of the original thick stone walls of the house. 

 

A perfect place..

As well as being infamous for its light and artists St Ives is also popular for winter storms and visitors all year round. You really are in a front row seat at Balcony Studio, located on the sea defence wall our large storms can break directly outside sending spray over the roof. The windows have been specially designed to withstand this and therefore must be secured properly at all times.

Enjoy a pre-dinner drink from the balcony or prepare your own meals in the newly fitted kitchen, a relaxing mezzanine level with sofa and Smart TV if you can pull yourself away from the balcony view.

Check into luxury at The Balcony Studio and enjoy exploring St Ives in style.

I stayed here with my wife for a short trip after our wedding and it was incredible. The charming spot was nested right into the coast and gave incredible sea views from the bedroom balcony. We loved the huge bathtub with powerful jets and the place only was 30 seconds away from some of our favourite spots to eat and drink in St Ives.
Would happily book another trip here, highly recommended.

Beautiful home in a stunning location. Incredible views over the harbour through the bedroom window - opening the curtains for the first time will not be forgotten! Most beautiful bathroom we have ever had. Very romantic, would highly recommend and will be back!

Superb place to stay! Tastefully decorated with all amenities we needed. It looked new and pristine. Immaculate and clean. The bathrooms were especially nice. They were spacious with everything just right, nothing lacking. Kitchen was equally impressive. Lovely new sectional to watch tv (Netflix) or read by the convenient lights. Accessible by foot to wharf, restaurants, shops and beaches on either side. Parking across from front door although we were not prepared for the tight quarters of the narrow streets we found around Cornwall. Lisa responded quickly when we had an issue with the key and was quickly fixed. All in all a delightful experience. Hope to return someday.
