An upside down house..

Barefoot Beach House is 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.

What a perfect little cottage! It was just perfect for our weekend break - really close to the centre of town, and in advance of our arrival someone had thoughtfully put the heating on. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds all comfy and everything was beautifully clean. The cottage is thoughtfully laid out and everything has its place. The upstairs kitchen/lounge was large and airy, with the 3 bedrooms downstairs all with a surprising amount of space in each. Very tall guests will need to take care as the shower is under-stairs, but my husband managed and he's 6"6'. There is an alternative upstairs bath. Thank you for a perfect cottage stay!


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.


I stayed with a group of friends in this lovely flat for a long weekend. This is a great place for small groups or families - the location is brilliant; a short walk to beaches, restaurants and pretty much everywhere in St. Ives. All my questions before the stay about parking/restaurants etc. were answered quickly and helpfully, and it's clear that a lot of work has gone into ensuring this is a safe and relaxing place to stay in the current climate. If you do drive down, there are a lot of narrow streets with heavy foot traffic to navigate in order to get to the car parks near the flat, and you should be prepared to wait a while for spaces to become available - but this will be true of anywhere you stay in St. Ives! Would definitely stay here again!

The Barefoot Beach House is the perfect place to stay in St Ives, in a great location just next to Porthgwidden Beach and the Beach Cafe. Everything is within easy walking distance, including the town centre and all the beaches. The house is immaculate and spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend.
