“Very well appointed apartment, a great location close to beach and all amenities, very clean and highly recommended”
Reviewed 23 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Flipflops is in a great location very close to the beach, restaurants and shops. A quaint apartment very clean and everything you need. We stayed for five days whilst attending a friends wedding. It is a place I could recommend for couples and families. The owner Derek explained everything about the apartment in his email.

“Perfect find in the heart of st ives, we have booked again for next year”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Great little place to accommodate 4people in the heart of st gives. Busy little town with lots of atmosphere for October. Cottage was very comfortable, exceptionally clean and had everything that we required. Beautiful coastal walks, plenty of eating places and spoilt for choice. So lucky as weather fabulous for this time of the year. We liked it so much we have booked flip flop cottage next year.

“Lovely cottage ideal location”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

Welcomed with a Cornish cream tea we loved the decor of this ideally situated cottage. The lounge/ kitchen is upstairs with a sunny outlook down the quaint cobbled street. In one direction it is 3 minute walk to the Atlantic rollers at Porthmeor or turn right out of the front door and it's 2 minutes to Fore Street then onto the harbour. Very well equipped accommodation to a high standard with 3 TVs , 2 of which are smart.
Would definitely use again.

“A wonderful week in Saint-Ives!!!!”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

After a 45 year absence from St-Ives, Caroline and I decided a return visit to St-Ives would be a great idea. After much research we chose the Flip Flop cottage. We are certainly glad we did. Being from Canada we were pleased with how easily the arrangements were made. Upon arrival in St-Ives we realized nothing had really changed, quaint and as lovely ss ever. We were truly surprised with our accommodations. Bright, modern and totally functional. The cottage was clean, well stocked with everything we needed (minus the food of course), but on the day we arrived there were fresh scones, fresh Cornish cream, jam and milk awaiting us. The cottage on Love Lane is basically located in the heart of old St-Ives, close to the beaches, the pubs, the restaurants, and around the corner from the harbour. Should we visit St-Ives again we would definitely stay again. C&C

Liked best: The fact that like the harbour, the beaches were right around the corner.
Liked least: Other people, but that has nothing to do with the cootage which was fabulous.

“The best spot for staying in the middle of St Ives”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a spot to stay! 2 minute walk to Porthmeor Beach and 3 minute walk to the harbour. A really romantic cottage. Small, but big enough for 5/6, and very very cosy. Living like the old fisherman in a gorgeous town.
