FORMER FISHERMAN'S LOFT WITH BABY GRAND PIANO. PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in St Ives

Sleeps 4, 2 Bedroom, Light, Spacious Apartment, close to Porthmeor Surf Beach.

The apartment, in the heart of St.Ives, has the external characteristics of its original net loft identity whilst its interior is in-keeping with the Modernist Piazza/Barnaloft complex of flats with which it shares facilities. As well as private access to Porthmeor Beach (during summer months), which allows you to return to the shower straight from the sea, the shared facilities also include a viewing platform of the beach from the roof of the flats, a laundrette and recycling. There is a locally owned corner shop opposite the apartment that supplies a good range of groceries and newspapers. Other shops, banks, restaurants, pubs, beaches and the harbour are only a few minutes walk away.

The apartment is light, uncluttered and spacious with plenty of storage throughout. It has the unique benefits of having no attached neighbours above, below and to one side as well as a baby grand piano. The apartment was carefully updated in 2008 to provide for contemporary needs including free WiFi.

There are several steps leading to the front door. The two bedrooms are off the hall. Bedroom One has a 4ft 6ins double bed and a washbasin with a shaver point. Bedroom Two has 2x3ft bunk beds. Upstairs the lounge has a double sofa bed, allowing more sleeping options, with its bedlinen stored in the kitchen benches. There is a large screen TV with Freeview, which is suitable for using with most games consoles, a DVD player and CD/radio. The shower room has a large shower cubicle, washbasin with shaver point, WC, heated towel rail and airing cupboard containing the central heating boiler. The kitchen/dining room has an electric cooker, washing machine, microwave, fridge and telephone (for incoming calls only).

Electricity and gas are included in the rental cost. Gas central heating means the apartment is warm and cosy all year round, which makes it a perfect place in which to enjoy Christmas (Christmas tree and decorations will be included if you wish) and New Year festivities (don’t forget your fancy dress!). Duvets, bedlinen, towels and kitchen tea towels are provided but we ask visitors to bring their own beach towels. There is no parking with the property but we can recommend different parking options in the town, no smoking please and no pets are allowed in the apartment (we can recommend a pet care service in St.Ives if you wish to bring pets with you on holiday). Visitors are asked to arrive after 3pm on their first Saturday, to depart before 10am on the final Saturday and to leave the flat as they found it.

Second stay at this property and as usual was perfect, the apartment was clean and well maintained. The extra effort with Xmas decorations and tree and presents for the two girls was so nice! The location is excellent. Will stay again and again. Many thanks Laura and Steve and a happy New Year!!!
Owner's Response: It was great to have you to stay again. Preparing for people we have already met meant we could add the personal touches. We're very pleased you liked them and look forward to welcoming you again.

Lovely Holiday Home from Home

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The description was accurate, and the property in perfect condition. The kitchen was very well equipped. Would definitely recommend - friends and family visited from Plymouth whilst we were there and wished they could stay themselves! Laura was very welcoming and left tea, coffee milk and homemade jam, and a big bunch of lillies. Loved the secret door to the beach.
Owner's Response: We're really pleased your holiday lived up to expectations and that you enjoyed the little extras.

Excellent location, lovely property!

Property could not be better positioned as it is about 30 seconds from the beach. Had everything we could need and the owner left some thoughtful supplies for our arrival, including; milk, chocolate biscuits and my personal favourite a bag of proper ground coffee to use in the cafetiere! The owner was also very good at getting in touch prior to our visit and the property is exactly as described. Could not ask for anything more and we would love to come back and stay again.
Owner's Response: We like to provide some little things that make your holiday a bit more special. We're really pleased you had such a good time and look forward to welcoming you again.

A warm welcome with plenty of useful information from Laura and Steve. Lots of home comforts and useful daily essentials provided as well as being spotlessly clean with lovely décor and furnishings. Would certainly recommend to friends and family. Looking forward to another visit already!

Beautiful St. Ives

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 28-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
Thank you for a lovely stay in beautiful St Ives! The property is within walking distance to the beaches and the town centre and since we did not bring a car but took the sleeper train from London, this was very convenient. The train station is only a few minutes' walk away from the apartment, which might be useful to know for other guests from 'far-away countries' who are a bit reluctant about driving on the left side of the road. The owner made us feel very welcome and provided good service. Since I came back to Sweden I have recommended Cornwall and St. Ives to all my friends and family. We will definitely be coming back again! Kind regards, Lotta Ericson.
Owner's Response: Thank you Lotta, we are so pleased you enjoyed your adventurous trip from Sweden to St.Ives and we very much look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
All good wishes,
Laura

Porthmeor Beach is located in the ‘down along’ area of St. Ives that was formerly inhabited by fishermen, their cottages and lofts in which they repaired their nets. Porthmeor is one of five beautiful beaches in the town of St. Ives, each with their own character. The Westward facing Porthmeor is well-known for surfing and the Tate Gallery and as a great place for beach BBQ's whilst enjoying dramatic sunsets. Coastal paths from St. Ives are rich with a wealth of wildlife such as wild flowers, sea birds, seals and occasional dolphins. After a good half-day's walk from Porthmeor enjoy a well-deserved meal in the Tinner's Arms in the village of Zennor where DH Lawrence wrote his famous novel 'Women in Love'. Be sure to look for the mermaid in Zennor Church before catching the open-top bus back to St. Ives. Boat trips from the harbour will take you either deep sea fishing or to visit the seals living on Seal Island. You could treat yourselves to a meal in the best restaurant in St.Ives, Porthminster Beach cafe, overlooking St. Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse made famous by Virginia Woolf's novel 'To the Lighthouse'.

During the 1940’s the down along area of St. Ives began to be shared by artists including Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth (Barbara Hepworth Museum is in St. Ives) and Bernard Leach (Leach Pottery also in St.Ives). These and other artists colonised the area, converting warehouses into artists’ studios. They were followed by more artists including Patrick Heron, Peter Lanyon, Terry Frost and Roger Hilton. Eventually, in the 1990’s, on the site of the old gasworks, the famous Tate St. Ives was built. St. Ives has therefore become a place of pilgrimage for artists and art lovers. St. Ives School of Painting is just around the corner and offers drop in life drawing classes and week long courses.
