Beautiful!!

Perfect Location, Perfect Views and the most Pefect Apartment! Loved every second of our break here, the apartment is spot on and has everything you need, it’s finished to an amazing standard and the views are second to none. We come to St Ives every year, so have stayed in a few different places and the others simply do not compare! We CANNOT wait to come back again! Thank you!!!
