This cute home stay in the famous area of the Digey in St Ives is perfectly located right in the heart of the town so everything is just a short walk away, from the golden sandy beaches to the great shops and restaurants. It's tucked away though, so easy to block out the hustle and bustle of town and retreat - just what you need at the end of the day. Wella exudes a playful, laid-back beachy vibe with vibrant colours and natural materials used throughout - it's the little touches here that stand out, from the stunning oak beams, one-of-a-kind artwork, amazing fabrics and pretty wallpaper. With upside-down living (the en suite bedrooms are downstairs, the living space upstairs to make the most of the light), this is a chilled-out family pad.
Living and eating

Walk upstairs and you'll find a lovely open-plan space with the kitchen and dining area on one side and the living space on the other. A fab sofa and two occasional chairs cluster snugly around the chic modern fireplace and television - perfect for lounging in the evenings - whether just to chat or maybe hunker down for a film night.

At the other end is a brilliant kitchen with a five-ring gas hob and oven, large fridge-freezer and all the other top-notch equipment to create fantastic meals - why not pick up some fresh fish from the harbour front to cook yourselves? There's a handy breakfast bar for on-the-go snacks, whilst the dining table and chairs adjacent to the kitchen is ideal for longer, laid-back meals.


The bedrooms are tucked downstairs and are both en suite and have underfloor heating. The master bedroom is really cute with lovely St Ives-themed wallpaper, cosy bed, handy built-in wardrobes and television. The second bedroom has a lovely aquatic theme and is perfect for little ones - bedding is blue, whilst the walls are a calming green and there's plenty of storage for clothes. This can be made up as a twin or double.


There are two en suite bathrooms - the master en suite is a shower room with huge walk in shower with huge rainfall head, whilst the en suite to the twin is a bathroom and has a television (perfect for long soaks!). Both have underfloor heating to keep toes toasty and heated rails to keep towels fluffy and warm.

Outdoor space

To the front of Wella is an enclosed, secluded courtyard which is shared with two other properties - you'll have your own table and chairs to sit out, and there's a handy shower to wash down sandy feet or wetsuits. But with St Ives and its beaches as your back garden, you're spoilt for choice!


Wella has WiFi so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.


This is one of our pet-free properties.


Long stay car parking is available at Barnoon, The Island, Park Avenue, the Station and Trenwith.
