"Thankyou for your recent email. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'Clearwater,' the apartment was absolutely beautiful with every need more than adequately catered for! We also enjoyed the short walk down the hill to the centre of St Ives."
"We had a lovely stay at Clearwater thank you. Perfect location, lovely and clean and the complimentary cream tea , shopping bag etc were really appreciated. Will hopefully be staying again next year. "
"We had a great week in St Ives. Clearwater is in a fab location and is a comfortable, stylish apartment. We enjoyed coffee and cakes and great service at Pels which is especially good for me as they do a good range of gluten free products, even crepes, Blas is great for a burger and we had a very sociable night in there, for steak I don't think you can beat the Fire House, and for a drink and a view The Hub. For something a bit different The Bean Inn at Carbis bay had a good choice of dishes."
"We had a great holiday at Gallinas Point, the property was clean , well equipped and very welcoming, close to st Ives and the beach at Porthminster is just perfect for our two preschool aged children. Had to visit Carbis Bay quite a few times tho as we just love it there & it's there that our whole love affair with this area of Cornwall began! The outdoor area at Clearwater was also a real plus point for us with two rather adventurous toddlers as it was SAFE and enclosed."

"We had a great stay in Clearwater at St. Ives on our recent holiday, it is a stunning area. The accommodation and its location were excellent. We enjoyed the coastal path walk from St. Ives to Carbis bay and had enjoyable meals in Blas, Rhubarb and The Mermaid as well as a fantastic fish suppers from Becks in Carbis Bay. A visit to St. Agnes is worth a trip as the beach area and walks are stunning."
"We had a very enjoyable holiday at Clearwater. The apartment was clean and tidy well equipped and in a good location, handy to walk into St Ives. One of our favourite trips was to nearby Godrevy Lighthouse, parking at the National Trust car park and walking by the crashing sea. I'm sure we will re visit the apartment sometime and we will recommend to our friends."

"We stayed at Clearwater, the apartment exceeded our expectations in terms of how well equipped the apartment was. It was in a great location, close to Porthminster Beach and a short, yet pleasant walk into town, it was spotlessly clean and very well equipped ensuring that we had an easy, enjoyable stay."
J. & L. Bullock
"We had a great time the welcome pack and flowers were a pleasant surprise especially as we had forgotten to take tea and milk. The apartment was very clean and had all mod cons and more. We would recommend the walk around the Penrose Estate lake and Looe bar with a drink at the Ship Inn Porthleven."
"Myself and my partner enjoyed our holiday very much. We found the apartment very clean with all the 'mod cons'. It was in a great location, 5 minutes walk to the beach and 5 minutes walk into town."
"The accommodation was in a perfect location and the apartment was very nice. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the stay very much. The good weather was a big bonus and made our first holiday in Cornwall a memorable one."
