“Beautiful, stylish haven with stunning sea view”
Reviewed 6 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Sands Studio is tucked away in a quiet location directly behind Porthgwidden Beach. With a wonderful away-from-it-all feel, enhanced by a stunning sea-view through the wall of window that graces the spacious living area, it is situated close to the main attractions of St Ives, including the beautiful harbour to the east and the spectacular Porthmoer surfing beach to the west. Combining comfort with style, we found Sands Studio to be the perfect place to relax and marvel at the changing sea-scape.

“The Perfect Place to Stay”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

There are so many good things we could say about staying at the Sands Studio. However, to keep this short and sweet, the apartment is everything that is promised on the website, beautiful, stylish, clean, well equipped, and exactly like the photos on the internet. The location is perfect for accessing everything you need. It's about 30 seconds walk from Porthgwidden Beach, and just a few minutes walk from the harbour, with all its restaurants, bars, and shops. And in the other direction, just a few minutes walk from Porthmeor Beach. Porthminster Beach is a little further, but still close, and within short walking distance. Finally, saving the best thing for last, Angela and Olivier were awesome. From start to finish, they were extremely helpful and friendly. They really went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect. They took the time to talk to us properly, giving the whole stay a very personal touch, and making us feel we could go to them for anything we needed, and even recommending and booking the best restaurants for us. Also, the inclusive breakfast at Trovose Harbour House was so good, we actually made a booking to go back a second time. As you can probably tell, we were extremely happy with everything, and would definitely recommend staying at the Sands Studio, or indeed Trovose Harbour House. We hope to return again in the near future.

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

St Ives offers many places to stay, but it's hard to find somewhere with such individual style and taste coupled with such stunning sea views. The welcome hamper was a great way to start the trip. Breakfast can be taken inside or outside on the balcony, depending on the weather. A very special breakfast is also offered at Trevose Harbour House (sister property) for one morning during our stay. Delicious! The hosts, Angela and Olivier are welcoming and can offer tips on where to go and where to eat.
The bedroom is super comfortable, with ample space to hang clothes and cosy dressing gowns ready and waiting. The bathroom has a stylish, roomy shower and all you will need for a getaway.
Sands Studio has been designed with care and great attention to detail. The location of the property is ideal for beach, restaurants and shopping.

“Stunning and stylish mid century apartment with grogeous views”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

It was such a pleasure to stay in this beautifully designed mid century apartment, right in the heart of St Ives. The apartment has recently been completely refurbished to an extremely high standard, with wonderful attention to detail. The owners run a boutique hotel in St Ives and provide impeccable conceige style service, recommending restaurants and walks and they even provided me with a wonderful breakfast at their hotel. The location couldn't be better and the view from the living area and balcony is just incredible. Staying at Sands is like staying in your own private 5 star hotel. I will absolutely be coming back to stay.
