"I would like to say that we had an amazing wonderful new year break at Porth Glas in St Ives. Everything was perfect. It was spotlessly clean and was a real home from home with all the equipment we could possibly need. The apartment was a short walk from town but high enough up to have fabulous views."
"We had a lovely holiday in Porth Glas, and could not fault the accommodation. It was clean and well equipped, and the situation was perfect for long strolls through the streets of St Ives. The sauna was a big asset and it was used every day."
"We had a lovely time at Porth Glas.
We thought the apartment/duplex was beautiful and beautifully decorated/designed and very well equipped. Everything was lovely quality. We made use of the board games and X box which our children loved (10 & 9). It was very handy to have the washer and dryer and we did have a couple of times in the Sauna which was a real treat. We also made use of the spa passes at the St Ives Harbour hotel. We visited 3 times during the week and the children love being able to swim in the warm pool and mum and dad could relax. It was a real plus out of season and with the weather not being so dry. The apartment was in a brilliant location with lovely views. It was great to have parking too."

“We had a lovely holiday again in St Ives. We loved the apartment Porth Glas, it was spacious, modern, relaxing and had great views. The welcome pack was a real treat for us and our young son can't wait to use his bucket and spade again. We visit and stay every year around this time to celebrate Christmas early. Your company has been the best we used to date.”
"We had a great break, the holiday was to our expectations. The house is outstanding for 2 plus 2 family, views and proximity to everything ideal."
