Overview

Overview

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.

Lovely flat, spacious feel, great location.

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay here. Fabulous location. Easy access to porthmeor beach. The flat has a lovely spacious feel, clean, well maintained, well stocked kitchen and the grand piano was a real pleasure to play. The art provides a bright, creative ambience.

A lovely spotless apartment, in a perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
A lovely spotless apartment, in a perfect location. There is everything you could possibly need in the apartment, especially in the kitchen and great to be left some essentials i.e. milk, tea, coffee, chocolate biscuits plus fresh flowers. The cupboard at the bottom of the stairs was a real bonus, with deck chairs, windbreak, beach toys etc. Located just a few steps from Porthmeor beach with the wonderful surf school and lovely beach cafe/restaurant. The well stocked corner shop across the road was great for all those essentials, including freshly baked pastries and daily newspaper.
The harbour is only 2 minutes walk away, where there are great restaurants and shops.
We would certainly recommend this fabulous apartment to anyone visiting St Ives!

Fabulous and Peaceful Location

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful, spacious and immaculate apartment. Cosy and welcoming and a baby grand piano exciting for those who can play as there are no neighbours attached.
Laura and Steve made us feel at home. Fresh flowers and chocolate biscuits on arrival.
The beach is really only steps away through a secret passage to Porthmeor beach. It has a communial rooftop viewing space to watch perfect sunsets..... what a treat.
An added bonus go along to the harbour and look out for the seals the come everyday.
Don't miss a visit to the Vintage Coffee shop at the harbour. Takes you back in time and the staff are very friendly.
We would recommend the apartment to friends and relatives and hope to return.

Perfect location in old St. Ives

  • 5 out of 5
This cozy and very well equipped apartment is located in the heart of the idyllic old part of St. Ives just a few minutes walk from the waterfront and the narrow cobblestoned streets of the city centre with many shops and galleries. There are many good restaurants and tearooms close by and friendly people everywhere. The listing description of the property is accurate and the photos we saw beforehand matched reality.
Laura couldn't have been more helpful both in answering our queries before our arrival and she provided information about the apartment on our arrival; she had thought of everything for a comfortable and happy stay, and like others we felt very welcome with the finishing touches of the flowers, tea & coffee etc.
We enjoyed our holiday immensely and we will definitely recommend this property.

Fond memories and a perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect spot just a few minutes walk from the harbour and the shops and steps from the beach. Convenience store opposite and some really nice restaurants and pubs nearby!

The apartment was spacious for the 2 of us and we loved the flexibility of coming and going as we pleased. The loft was immaculate and a little quirky being a duplex. There was everything we needed and Laura had certainly thought of everything for a comfortable and happy stay!

Lastly the finishing touches of the flowers (beautiful smelling lilies & carnations) filled the apartment with a welcoming smell and the tea & coffee were an added bonus - thank you.

My only tiny critique was that we are used to a 5ft bed so the double was a little snug for us but this was manageable :)

Thanks Phoebe and Laura.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review, we are very pleased you enjoyed our apartment and your holiday in St.Ives. I'm grateful for your comment about the size of the bed - we will bear this in mind for the future since the room is certainly big enough for a 5' bed.

Best wishes from Laura, Steve and Phoebe who welcomed you in.

Porthmeor
Car: not necessary

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.
