"The apartment had every possible thing needed for a relaxing stay,Comfortable and superbly equipped with amazing views of the sea."
"Really loved the apartment, fantastic views, lovely holiday, booked same apartment next year for my honeymoon.
One thing that would have been good on the balcony was to have a cosy chair to sit and admire the view!"
"The apartment has an excellent equipment, a fantastic view and is ideal in St. Ives. We have been there several times and come back next year. We are completely enthusiastic."
"Abalone is superb. You don't feel as though you need to go out. So clean and comfortable with fabulous views and a large balcony. Having a huge television with Sky sports and movies was also great although we did not really use these. And the Amazon Echo speaker is amazing. Having the spa passes was also great which we used a couple of times. The owners have got it spot on. We have stayed at many places in st ives over the past 30 years and this is up there with the best."
"We had a wonderful holiday. Abalone was truly a home from home, its position is just perfect, it was very peaceful and the view therapeutic.
Everything met our expectations; in terms of the standard of the apartment and the cleanliness perhaps even exceeded them."
"First and lasting impression was... Wow.!
Everything was so clean and new looking, Hayley explained that we were only the 6th set of guests to occupy the apartment since it became available.
The apartment was luxurious, clean, very well equipped and comfortable with stunning views. Couple this with the location which offers easy access in terms of arriving & parking up (no driving through streets which weren't designed for cars) and also the fact it is within range of walking everywhere.
Thanks to all of this we spent another very happy week in St Ives."
