“Lovely view, great location, the best time ever! The apartment looks wonderful and is very well equipped. Will happily come here again!”
This superb Cornish holiday apartment is in a stunning location, perched high on the rocks next to Porthminster beach, with wide uninterrupted views from St Ives harbour to Godrevy lighthouse, a fabulous spot for watching the changing scenery, whatever the weather. In winter, snuggle inside on the comfy window seat to watch the waves crashing over the rocks. On a fine day, sit out on the balcony and wonder at the fantastic far-reaching views.
The approach is along a balcony and through double patio doors into a light and airy open plan room. The décor is simple, white painted walls and pine floorboards, there are works by local artists and a large window seat is recessed into the granite; from here you can spot cormorants and seals.
The dining area is positioned to take full advantage of the views through the patio doors. From here a spiral staircase winds down to the kitchen, reminiscent of a boat with portholes and painted kitchen units. There is a bathroom with small bath and shower over, again having a porthole with seaviews.
The bedroom is just off the living area up 3 steps, it is divided by a half wall, so that you can sit in bed and watch the sea. The bed is a comfortable pocket sprung double mattress. A second shower-room is next to the bedroom with newly fitted large shower, toilet, sink and wardrobe.

“This is one of the best places we’ve ever stayed – the apartment itself is lovely and has everything you might need, has a lovely peaceful feeling. Then you have the view which must be one of the best in St Ives. Great sitting on the balcony watching the sea and there have been seals, cormorants…have loved every minute of it.”
