A very comfortable, well-equipped apartment in an excellent location right on the harbour front, a stone's throw from shops, restaurants and beaches. We stayed here for a week - the weather was very mixed, and so we really appreciated that when it was cold and wet, we were able to relax in the warmth and enjoy the spectacular view from the sitting-room window. There is no parking at the property, and we found the Rover parking ticket was excellent value and had no problem finding a spot in the Trenwith or Park Avenue carparks. Restaurants tend to be booked up, so we were glad we had made reservations well in advance.

Mrs D,

View was spectacular, perfect location. No parking and sometimes difficult to get into a car park close by, but we knew that when we booked it and it was clear on the website so not an issue for us as we like walking! Netflix built into the tv was a bonus on a couple of rainy evenings. All about the view with this property, even when you’re indoors you feel like you’re out having a good day as you’re right in the heart of St Ives and can see everything going on out of the window.

Mr L,


St Ives is one of Cornwall's top destinations and a beautiful seaside town where visitors can enjoy a traditional beach holiday with a twist. It's easy to understand why the town has been attracting painters, sculptors and ceramists for decades with its stunning scenery and natural quality of light- one of only four Tate Galleries in the world is located here in the heart of the town. The town itself arcs around the working harbour- the heart of the historic fishing community. You could lose yourself for hours in the charming cobbled streets which are crammed with gift and craft shops, art galleries, top notch restaurants and welcoming local pubs- a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored!

St Ives also has four fabulous beaches, Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, Harbour beach and Porthminster which between them offer miles of golden sand and hours of building sand castles, playing in the rock pools and other family friendly activities. Dogs are welcomed out of season. Throughout the year, St Ives has a busy event calendar including the St Ives Food & Drink Festival in May and a Music & Arts Festival in September.

So what are you waiting for? Why not discover what St Ives is all about today!
