“Perfect week”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Mermaid House was the perfect base for our walking holiday in Cornwall. The apartment has all you could ever need for a first class stay. Very well decorated and equipped throughout and spotlessly clean. The beds were the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on......I did think of trying to get mine in the back of the car .. Seriously , if you want a quality rental in St Ives which has its own private parking and is situated away from the hustle and bustle of the town, then this is the one for you. Thank you to Denise for her generosity and assistance throughout.

“Mermaid House”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Mermaid House was perfect accommodation for us (two couples), for a week stay in St Ives. The owner Denise was very nice, and gave us good advise on the area, walks, etc, and even offered us an extra day either side of our booking at no additional cost !
If we were in the area anytime in the future we would not hesitate in stopping at Mermaid House again.

“Great family home”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had an enjoyable stay in this comfortable family home. Very clean and well looked after with everything you could need. A good location, only 10 minute walk into St Ives, it took slightly longer to get back up the hill but the bus was very handy. Would definitely go back.

“Perfect break”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I stayed at Mermaid House with our two year old twins in late May and we had a wonderful time. The apartment was light and airy, decorated to a very high standard and spotless. As we only have a medium size car, getting everything you need for two young children to a holiday apartment is a challenge but Mermaid House had all the bulky things (two cots, highchairs etc) already present which made life so much easier. The great selection of children's games/books & DVD's was also a real bonus. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to people in a similar situation to ourselves or to anyone else who wanted to visit the beautiful beaches and spectacular scenery in the vicinity.
