A Unique and lovingly renovated apartment, within very close proximity to all beaches in St.Ives. With its own outside space that catches the sun all day and late into the evening. Its the perfect peaceful,relaxing and romantic spot in lovely St.Ives
No.7 Teetotal Street, is a lovely place to be in St.Ives.
It’s a listed residence and a part of a historical Area in the town called 'Downalong' this is traditionally where the fishermen and their families lived and stored their tackle and nets.
WITH ITS VERY OWN OUTSIDE SPACE (rare in St.Ives) that gets sunlight from morning until late evening, with its own succulent garden & bespoke buoys, to its location nestled within a perfectly quiet traditional St.Ives street that’s very close to almost everything you would need to access to enjoy your stay, from beaches to restaurants, shops and walking routes. It really is the perfect spot.
Coming through the traditional barn style front door, You have a
FULLY EQUIP KITCHEN, with complementary, Tea, sugar and coffee, complete with breakfast bar, should you not want to utilise the huge amount of restaurants to your disposal when considering your dining options.
THE TELEVISION is on a full tilt and swivel arm style bracket that you can turn to watch whether cooking or sat at the breakfast bar in the kitchen or seated in the lounge. It has digital channels at your disposal and there is also a DVD player there for use as well. There is also free WIFI codes can be found on the card sucured to the wall next the router and dvd player.
THE LOUNGE has a big bespoke Ibiza style day bed/sofa that is drowning in lots of cushions, pillows and throws that you can cosy into at night and watch a film, or hunker down with when the weather gets a little wild outside (mainly in the winter of course).
All the cushions on the day bed can be taken out and placed on the bench outside should you prefer to sit in the sunlight with a drink and a good book, we just ask you take care of them and do not leave them outside in the rain or while you are not at No.7.
THE SEA WALL – in the Lounge, is a big part of No.7’s unique features. It is your go to spot for maps (old and new) of Cornwall, Penwith and St.Ives. Very importantly it also has its very own Thermometer to check in on that ever changing temperature, Barometer to see what the weather will be doing and a very handy Tide Clock, showing the hours to high and low tide, which as you will witness when you get to St.Ives is a very visible daily occurrence. Not only has it got that but the wall has 3 big features that you may want to utilise either outside at No.7 or at the Beach ….
2 DECKCHAIRS that are hung on the walls with hooks that you can easily lift the chairs off and carry out, plus
OUR LOVELY STRIPY WINDBREAK which is also set on hooks that you simply lift off . Perfect to take down to the beach to shield you from the breeze while you hopefully bathe in the sunshine of St.Ives. Just a little request…..Please do take care of these items when taking them out of No.7 they have all been made especially for us and we really wouldn’t want them lost or damaged unnecessarily & please make sure they are back in their rightful places when it comes time for you to leave.
THE BATHROOM has a lovely hot shower that you can use at anytime of day (switched on and off using the pull cord by the bathroom light) and guest towels galore for you to use from our boat ore towel rails.
THE BEDROOM has an ample built in wardrobe , to unpack and store your bags, or cases. A cosy Double bed, with reading lights and plenty of plug sockets for phone chargers and the hairdryer. It also has a beautiful window seat to situate your self at with a good magazine in the sunlight or to use as a little table when sat outside so the seagulls do not suddenly take an interest to you The window is fitted with a blind , but also a net option, and a heavier grey curtain should you want to block the morning sunlight from waking you.
I really hope you enjoy the space I do when I am in St. Ives , its very special to me but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Best Wishes Gemma

During your booked stay at No.7 the Apartment is wholly yours, there are coat cupboards and the electrical cupboard which will be open (but you should not need) you have access to No.7 in its entirety.
KEYS WILL BE IN THE KEY-SAFE situated on the inside of the wall in the outside space, the code will be provided to you on the day via text message.
Where possible I would hope I am available for any help over the phone within normal circumstances. So please do get in touch if you need to, I am happy to help were at all possible.
With reference to parking, unfortunately we do not have a parking space, however we are very close (literally a hop, skip and jump) to the Island Long stay car park & Smeatons Pier Long Stay Car Park which you can park there for the duration of your stay at a daily or weekly fee (it does get busy but you do tend to get a space if you wait, as people are always coming and going), or just up above Porthmeor there is the Barnoon Long stay car park too, which you can also park for a week.
This is a handy link for your reference :
Having spent quite a while in St. Ives these three are your best bet, especially if you are planning on just staying in and around St.Ives and leaving the car for the week.
There are many other options though, including seeking out a few of the hidden free spaces on Windsor Hill and up Porthmeor Hill near the playing fields :).
KEYS: As mentioned the keys will be in the little KEY-SAFE situated on the inside of the wall in the outside space, the code will be provided to you on the day of your arrival via text message a little prior to your check in time. Please make sure you enter the code it correctly.
WE ASK THAT YOU USE THE SAFE THROUGHOUT YOUR STAY AND DO NOT TAKE THE KEYS OFF THE PROPERTY, House keys do not tend to fair so well in the sand or sea at the Beach, we would hate for you to be locked out so feel that that is your safest and most sensible choice.
DECKCHAIRS AND WINDBREAK -Please do take care of these items when taking them out of No.7 they have all been made especially for us and we really wouldn't want them lost or damaged unnecessarily & please make sure they are back in their rightful places when it comes time for you to leave.
RUBBISH COLLECTION IS ON FRIDAYS , where possible please make sure the bin is emptied before you leave. Please use the No.7 wheely bin, situated just outside the property to dispose of your rubbish bags. PLEASE ONLY PUT BLACK BIN LINERS WITH RUBBISH IN THE WHEELY BIN - THE BIN MEN WILL NOT TAKE THE RUBBISH OTHERWISE!
BEHAVIOUR- As I have mentioned Teetotal is a perfectly quiet traditional St.Ives street, there are residents (some of which I know well) and holiday lettings within the street and hope that your respect the peaceful nature that I am used to keeping when I am staying there. NO PETS ARE UNFORTUNATELY NOT ALLOWED
SMOKING IS NOT PERMITTED AT No.7 without question!!!
Spending my time between London and St.Ives , I work as a sign-writer in both locations having worked in fashion for years. Completely in Love with St. Ives and have been for 15 years, but cant quite cut all ties with lovely London to live full time in Cornwall, so I feel very lucky to own property in both City and sunny St.Ives.
