"'The Retreat' and it certainly is a treat. This was our first time staying at the Retreat and certainly will not be the last. This apartment is modern and very well equipped. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment needed if you are wishing to cook on a regular basis. The lounge area is large with SKY TV and a PS4 which the kids or big kids) love. The dining area can easily fit 6 people and still not be cramped. The bedroom and main bathroom are comfortable and beautifully decorated. Also has a utility cupboard with washer/dryer, beach footballs, beach tent etc and other extras for the beach. Upstairs the bathroom is spacious and the Main bedroom is once again beautifully decorated and spacious. The second bedroom upstairs with two single beds is well equipped with board games and other games for the children. All bedrooms have TV's and lots of wardrobe/draw space. Can't recommend enough. We will certainly be returning."

Absolutely beautiful home to stay in for our holiday. Lovely views, well worth the money. Our 4-year-old had a brilliant birthday here. Thank you.
Great location. Quality accommodation and the sun was shining.
"We stayed at The Retreat over Easter and our family had a lovely week. The accommodation was superb, the apartment was very clean and very well equipped, and was done out to a very high standard. The place was very light and airy and south facing so received a lot of light from the floor to ceiling windows. My 3 boys loved the fact there was Sky, a PS4 and DVD player. The location was great we were a couple of minutes from the beach and 5min walk from the centre of St Ives. We would love to visit again. Thanks again for a lovely week." Nicki Cadwallader
