Guestbook comments from the owner
(The following review appears on Trip Advisor where the guest rated The Apartment 5/5)
"The Apartment is located in just the right place for a great holiday by the beach. It is set back from the hustle and bustle but near enough to pop out with a young child to eat out in the evening. If you want to stay in, the kitchen has everything you need and more and the dining table located in the bay window gives you the best view in St Ives with its view of the harbour".
