Flip Flops Holiday Cottage, 1 Love Lane, is a 2 bedroom granite cottage built in the early 1800s right in the centre of Downalong, a collection of winding lanes in the oldest part of St Ives. It is close to both Porthmeor beach where at one end you can paddle or have a go at rock climbing whilst at the other end you could have a go at body boarding and surfing. Or if you aren’t feeling so energetic you can just relax with a book in the sun or visit the cafe overlooking the sea. Just a minute the other way out of Flip Flops is the harbour front which is great for pubs, the many independent shops St Ives is well known for, cafes and restaurants, ice cream shops and pasty shops etc.
Downstairs is the lounge with a 2014 Smart TV with Netflix, iPod dock stereo, seating for 5 and the downstairs shower and WC. The sofa is a fully cantilevered metal frames double sofa bed. There is also the very well equipped kitchen with an extending table with 5 chairs.
Off the kitchen is the bunk bed room, 2 full size bunks.
Outside there is a courtyard with a bench seat so you can sit out in the morning or evening and enjoy a drink.
Upstairs is the master bedroom, with a super King double. It also has a new LCD TV and large built in mirror fronted cupboards. Also upstairs is a bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
The facilities include; Full central heating and instant hot water, Microwave, fridge freezer, electric cooker, washing machine, iron, ironing board and even some beach toys and games for the kids. For toddlers we provide a high chair, a cot (no bedding for the cot) and a stair gate.
There is free parking next to the cottage. The car park is first come first served. There are also long stay pay car parks a few minutes away. Links to and info on the car parks are in the ‘St Ives’ page.
Our hope is that Flip Flops gives you everything you want in a holiday cottage, a great location in the center of St Ives, no traffic passing the cottage at all, lots of modern amenities like wifi etc, a properly equipped kitchen should you want to make a meal, comfortable beds and furniture, and some personal touches that we hope make the cottage more than just somewhere to sleep.
