Staying at The Sail Lofts offers the freedom of a luxury five-star self catering holiday, with hotel-style concierge services; giving you access to everything you need for a perfect break in the relaxed surroundings of St Ives. To help you rejuvenate in St Ives we've have a luxury spa - the perfect way to indulge whilst staying enjoying our self catering in St Ives. In 2010/11 The Sail Lofts were awarded ‘best large self catering establishment’ at The Cornwall Tourism Awards, and we also have a Certificate of Excellence from tripadvisor.
Our friendly team knows the town and West Cornwall inside out, and we're more than happy to recommend beaches and attractions, walks, places to eat, shops and galleries. We can arrange everything from booking boat trips and surf lessons, to ordering food deliveries from the local deli. We can even liaise with some of the best local chef’s to deliver gourmet meals to your apartment, or disappear into the kitchen and cook them for you, while you relax. We have an office in the central courtyard, so if there is anything you need, have concerns about or are just wondering ‘what do we do now’, you’re really welcome to come and see us.

Our aim is to provide our guests with a high-quality personal service. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we go that extra mile which is what we think sets us apart. Our on-site concierge office is open six days a week and Sam, Kelly, Peter or Abi are always willing to help, whether it’s unpacking your pre-arrival shopping, arranging spa treats at The Sail Lofts Ocean Spa or making restaurant reservations on your behalf, and this year we have an exciting range of new services we’ve added to our concierge.
To make life easier for those of you travelling with young babies we’ve introduced our baby concierge, a service which allows you to send us your shopping list of baby essentials such as nappies, wipes and snacks and have them waiting for you when you arrive so you can free up some car space for a few more luxuries.
If you’re joining us for a romantic getaway or you just want to treat that special person in your life take a look at the new range of romance packages or arrange for a fresh, delicious breakfast to be delivered so the two of you can enjoy breakfast in bed in the comfort of your apartment.
If, whilst visiting St Ives, you enjoy sampling the fresh local seafood that’s available we now have an arrangement with Matthew Stevens & Sons fishmongers allowing you to order fish, which is delivered fresh to your door (or fridge if you are out) on the day of your choice.

Every month we ask one of the team which is there favourite apartment – now, you’d think that it would stay the same but all the team agree that it varies depending on a number of factors including the time of year and general mood. This month it was Marketing Manager Kelly’s turn to decide which has her vote...
Being a home bird Kelly loves nothing more than cosying up in the colder months and as the cold snap shows no sign of letting up she had no trouble deciding on where she’d most like to spend the weekend – The Sail Lofts Cottage.
Her main reasons for choosing the Cottage were simple – she loves the cosy feel that the Cottage offers, especially in the living area where you can curl up on the sofas with a glass of red wine in hand whilst the gas stove fire warms your toes.
Kelly also feels that the bedrooms have a unique charm to them ‘they feel very tucked away and private and I love their quirkiness – where else, other than in a fisherman’s cottage, would you need to saw one leg of the bedside table off for it to sit straight!’
The Sail Lofts Cottage is a 3-bedroom property in the popular down-a-long area of St Ives. It can sleep up to 5 people and can accommodate well-behaved dogs (outside of the school holidays) by prior arrangement.
