Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for a great stay. I felt I relaxed immediately in your lovely studio. I did some paintings of the view from the window. I will be back next year!

As a writer, this artist's studio is my perfect retreat from the busy world.

St Ives is inspirational - whether you are a walker, art enthusiast, gourmet, painter, potter or sun worshipper. Its clean air and wonderful light will re-charge your batteries and make you want to return!

Lynda Davies purchased this apartment in 2001

As a former artist's studio, (used by Patrick Heron and also by the late Sandra Blow, a friend of mine), the apartment is at the heart of St Ives' artistic heritage. It has a happy feel and being so close to the beach, allows those staying to connect with nature and the sea in a special way. You can make your morning coffee or tea, walk down to the beach and have the beach all to yourself!

The apartment has windows on three sides. The sun rises in the living room, and sets on the landing, so you have light all day. The living room has a ten-foot window seat with views out across St Ives Bay, towards the Godrevy Lighthouse. It is a great place to sit and chill after a day walking the coastal path, surfing, or swimming in the sea, which is warmed, on Porthgwidden Beach, by the Gulf Stream. If the dolphins are around, you will have a great view from the window seat!

Guests are asked to water the houseplants!

Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
The title says it all, this is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty of St. Ives. The location is ideal- only a very short walk to the beach. The harbour- with its restaurants, cafes, and shops are less than 5 minutes away by foot. With a gorgeous view over the sea, you can even enjoy the breeze while sitting inside and drinking your morning coffee. The apartment itself has everything you need- all kitchen essentials, laundry facilities, and paper goods. This is the first self-catering stay I've experienced where absolutely everything we needed was available upon arrival. The apartment itself was clean, with comfortable bedding and towels.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of our stay was spending time in a place that was clearly so lovingly cared for. From an eclectic selection of books and CDs, to local artwork throughout, the atmosphere of the apartment was homey and unique.
The directions provided for our arrival were clear and easy to follow, and all communication with the owner was prompt. The only downside to our stay was actually having to pack up and leave. I highly recommend this property, and when I return to St. Ives, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Zelah, a stunning apartment with a beautiful view!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Zelah. The beautiful view from the lounge window and the lovely decor immediately made us relax and ready to enjoy another fantastic week. The beach is minutes away and is overlooked by Porthgwidden cafe/restaurant which has lovely food and a chilled atmosphere. Just around the corner is the Olive cafe which sells amazing cakes....yummy but not great for the waistline!! The appt is 5 mins from the harbour, shops and many bars/restaurants. Porthmeor and Porthminster beach are a short walk away and are both beautiful. We had a fantastic stay and wouldn't stay any where else in St Ives now and we've been coming down for 25 years and stayed at lots of different places. Can't wait to go back!

A special and unique studio by the sea

  • 5 out of 5
A chance to stay in a studio that is obviously much loved and full of beautiful books and things that you are trusted to share. You look out of the big window onto the sea in all its moods. Its a wonderful place. Thank you Lynda.

A perfect hideaway!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved Zelah Studio! The location is perfect...central but quiet with lovely ocean views and a short walk away from several excellent restaurants and galleries. The space is tastefully decorated, cozy, and clean, with a great deal of charm/character. It was exactly what we were hoping for. Prior to our arrival Lynda offered detailed information on things to do, restaurants, and tips to deal with the Easter crowds, which were very appreciated. Highly recommended!

Gorgeous apartment, incredible views

  • 5 out of 5
Lynda's apartment is perfect for a trip to St Ives. The location could not be better, overlooking an amazing beach, a minute from a lovely beach cafe, an incredible local shop just around the corner - the list goes on! Above all, the views straight out to sea, the light in the apartment and the general feeling of the place is what makes it so special. Loads of interesting books and games around, everything you need in this lovely, lovely retreat. Lynda was incredibly helpful too with booking the dates - she called back literally minutes after I enquired and answered all our emails really quickly. I couldn't recommend this more highly!

Incredible studio thay you'll never want to leave

Incredible studio thay you'll never want to leave
  • 5 out of 5
The sea view that awaits you as you enter the open plan living room of Zelah studio is something you will never forget. The contemporary furnishings mixed with beautiful artwork and dotted family mementos really make you feel home from home in this incredible part of the world. Explore the town and shops- especially the mystical bombardment that 'Kudos' unwittingly beholds- sample the fresh sea food and travel over to seal island for a nautical daytime adventure. And then roll back to the alluring Zelah studio after catching some remarkable acoustic music in the cosy Sloop Inn. Zelah is wonderfully looked after and maintained by the caring Lynda, and it really will provide the perfect foundation for a holiday you will never forget.
