“Lovely and comfortable stay!”
Reviewed 16 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed at this property for 4 nights. As a family of 4, with two teenagers, the location was perfect. The accommodation was very comfortable for us and well appointed. We would love to visit again sometime!

“Outstanding place!”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

St ives its self is just amazing but what made it more amazing is the apartment we had, Making waves was perfect, brilliant location just a short walk to everything! We had the downstairs apartment which is perfect if you travel with a dog or kids. Apartment is set out and decorated beautifully and has everything you need for your stay. The owner simon is lovely and very helpful we hope to stay there again soon.

“Great view and comfortable apartment made a very memorable stay.”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Traveled with husband and adult daughter. Simon was so friendly and helpful. Parking and driving in St. Ives is difficult. He had us park close-by in a parking space reserved for us for the two days. He had maps to follow to get around St. Ives. Convenient to the harbor area. Would love to stay there again.

“Mrs”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for a week, & the apartment is very comfortable, with everything you need for day to day living. There is a nice view of the sea from the living room. The apartment is approached from the back of the house so you don't really get to see the loveliness of the road Carrick Dhu. There is a garden with the apartment but it was across the service road & along slightly, & we didn't use it. Another thing to bear in mind is that it's very hilly in that area - some are extremely steep - so if you have trouble walking, or have a buggy - it is quite a climb! The owner, Simon, is a really nice guy & is really helpful with things you may need to know. We enjoyed our stay at Making Waves.

Many thanks for the feedback! There are a lot of steep hills all over St.Ives, so you'll leave fitter than when you came. The entrance to this apartment is at the rear of the house, whereas our maisonette has the front entrance - this ensures private entrances for each. But you still get the beautiful views from the front room over Carrack Dhu road and across to St.Ives Bay!

Everything we could have hoped for. Beautifully conceived and tasteful. The exquisite, secluded garden was great for outdoor eating/reading etc.

Thank you for your positive comments - glad you liked the re-modelled garden, which is getting lots of use since the sun finally came to St.Ives!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We loved our short but perfect stay at making waves. Simon the owner was really friendly and made sure we have everything we needed. He even saved us a parking space outside the house. Making a booking was super simple online and we were able to take our two dogs. The apartment is well equipped with fresh bedding and towels. The Kitchen and bathroom are both spotlessly clean. The playstation was a hit with the kids. 5 minute walk to a number of St Ives beaches. We did experience quite a lot of noise from the apartment upstairs but you really need to expect this in this type of property. All in all a great location and great apartment. Would definitely stay again.
