An upside down house..

Barefoot Beach House has recently been renovated and refurnished to an exacting high standard. A reverse level home situated in the Downalong area of St Ives. On the ground floor there are three cosy bedrooms including a king, a small double and a bunk bed room which is perfect for children or young adults. All of the bedrooms on the ground floor have been equipped with TVs. A shower room with WC and wash basin is also located on this floor. Barefoot Beach House has been furnished to a very high standard and is also both comfortable and stylish.

Upstairs you will find the open plan contemporary 'loft' style living space, with its high beamed ceilings which fill the space with natural light all day long. The well equipped kitchen and living space with ample and cosy seating for all the family to enjoy makes this the perfect entertaining space. A Smart TV is available in the sitting area with many extra channels as well as Amazon Prime and Netflix. Barefoot Beach House has a small courtyard at the front of the property which is gated for the little ones. It also has bench seating for relaxing at the end of the day.

A perfect place..

Barefoot Beach House is perfectly fitting for families. Just a stones throw away from Porthgwidden, Porthmeor and Harbour Beaches as well as local shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and numerous restaurants. A short walk to the famous Island which has a car park available near by. Barefoot Beach House is the perfect hub for exploring all that St Ives has to offer. 

Whilst the traditional cottage layout offers smaller accommodation for six, the enviable location means holiday life dips in and out of the hubbub of St Ives.

A lovely cottage in a fabulous location. We had 5 adults and one toddler on our stay and the cottage was a great base for us. The kitchen was well equipped and everything in the cottage was smart and comfortable. The shower was fabulous! Lots of thoughtful little touches such as biscuits, milk in the fridge and Tupperware (always handy for meals on the beach). Although there wasn’t parking we could stop outside to drop off bags and they arranged a parking spot for us about 20 mins walk away. This was really handy and took the stress out of finding somewhere to park everyday.


Spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, Barefoot Beach House provided delightful accommodation for our party of four adults on a short break to St Ives.
We loved the high quality fixtures and fittings, the location is great and Sandy Toes made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.


Just back after a wonderful stay at this property; in terms of location it is two minutes walk to Porthgwidden beach and a short walk into the town.
The property is well equipped, it was spotlessly clean and the beds were really comfortable. I would definitely recommend.


Barefoot Beach House is a beautiful cottage in a great location in St Ives. It is exceptionally well equipped, immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard. I especially loved the clean fresh decor and beautiful pictures, ornaments etc. and the small walled off area at the front of the house with a bistro set was an added bonus! Lisa the host was also excellent and we will definitely book again. 

Lovely cottage in the heart of St Ives - would highly recommend! The property was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented throughout - the bedrooms were warm and cosy and the living space was bright and airy. We appreciated the little touches like good quality bedding and towels etc. In terms of location it couldn’t have been more perfect - 2 mins walk from a small sheltered swimming beach and a short 5 min stroll down to the harbour and lanes. The Island car park is literally 2 mins away from the property which we booked at a reasonable price for the duration of our stay - just be prepared if you leave your space it can be hard to find another one during the day! We were 3 adults and 1 child and this space suited us perfectly.


We had a great stay, thank you very much!! Perfect location and space for us all. Would maybe recommend ear plugs for light sleepers due to the dawn chorus. Overall, it’s such a lovely house, recently renovated and really enjoyed our visit!


A beautifully renovated cottage in the heart of the old harbour. A fabulous base for exploring St Ives and beyond. Communication with Sandy Toes was welcoming and seamless. Perfect place, thoroughly recommend.
