‘A wonderful week away in a super location’

I stayed in Beach with my 2 sons and 18 month old grandson. A beautiful apartment with the real bonus of a bathroom each. The welcome pack was great and the staff so kind and helpful. I booked a reflexology treatment in the Spa - fabulous. Loved the whole week away - Sail Lofts, weather, beaches, scenery. Have already booked Harbour for next June to come with 2 friends. Can't wait.

‘Excellence Once Again’

My family of four and I made our 4th successive stay at the Sail Lofts in St Ives and once again the experience was close to impeccable.  We stayed in the Island apartment which is spacious and well appointed as well as being literally steps away from Porthmeor Beach. The staff have a great way of being available as needed but in an understated way that allows you to get on with your holiday. Location is a real plus point for the Sail Lofts being within 5 minutes walk of Porthmeor and Porthgwidden.

‘Fantastic accomodation in an ideal location’

We stayed in Driftwood with our baby daughter over Christmas and it was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. Very peaceful but also close to all the main attractions of St Ives, which is absolutely stunning at any time of the year. 5 stars and looking forward to the next trip.

‘First class stay as ever’

We have been fortunate enough to stay at the Sail Lofts in Harbour, Godrevy and Ocean apartments plus the sail lofts cottage, and I thought it was about time to write a review and share these wonderful apartments with you! We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Sail Loft apartments primarily because they are fabulous but also because the staff, general ambiance and location are spot on. It takes literally seconds to be on either of two fabulous beaches (both with great cafes too), and its a short stroll to the shops and numerous restaurants. The apartments are beautifully furnished, elegant whilst relaxed and everything has been thought of. Do not hesitate to book what can only be described as the best self catering accommodation in St Ives. You won't regret it!

“A mid a tangle of lanes dotted with art galleries behind the sandy curve of Porthmeor Beach, a small sign marks the entrance to a nondescript mid 20th-century building with a whitewashed wall. Step inside and an archway opens into a pretty courtyard with olive trees, neat rows of box hedges and a fountain. Around this courtyard, and in a few connecting buildings, are 12 “boutique apartments”. They’re really quite lovely.”

“Twelve apartments, varying in style and size, are gathered around an attractive courtyard which also houses the spa. It’s a minute’s walk from three beautiful beaches and the southwest coast path. The bedrooms: We stayed in Godrevy, a two-bedroomed apartment. It combines a modern kitchen with homely living areas and bedrooms. All apartments have flat screen TVs and iPod docks.”

“It has a real five-star feel about it, for home comforts, interior styling and a useful concierge service on hand to help guests. They can even call on a pool of gourmet chefs who can rustle up everything from a picnic hamper to a five course dinner party in your apartment. They will even clean and wash up afterwards. If that’s not enough to soothe away the stresses and strains of civilian life you can indulge in a relaxing beauty treatment or massage at the onsite Ocean Spa.”

“The local artwork on display inside the 13 stylish self-catering pads at Sail Lofts has impressed so many guests the owners have opened a shop to sell the photographic prints. Each of the open-plan apartments (sleeping between two and seven) comes with a parking space (gold dust in a St Ives summer) and there’s a decent spa onsite. Ocean offers views over Porthmeor Beach from the super-kingsize master bedroom; if an in-bath TV is top of your wish list, go for Slipway or Beach.”

“And we were going to stay somewhere very nice indeed, as it turned out. Our "home" for three nights was Beach, a three-bedroomed duplex self-catering apartment within a cleverly designed development known as The Sail Lofts. It was stunning. Holiday homes have come a long way in Britain in recent times but this one is seriously good.”

“We also stayed at top class self-catering apartments, The Sail Lofts. They have beautifully decorated and spacious interiors and surround a leafy central courtyard; the beds are ultra comfortable and original art hangs on the walls – what’s not to like? I’m already planning my return."”

“"Create your own wellbeing break at these stylish self-catering apartments, arranged around a plant-filled courtyard garden and just a 30-metre walk from the white sands and rolling surf of Porthmeor Beach"”
