About the property

Beach apartment sleeps four with private parking centrally located .

This beautifully renovated 19th century granite ground floor apartment provides indulgent on the beach location situated directly on the famous Porthmeor beach.The combination of this exceptional beach location and with the rarity of your own private parking space makes The Saltings a true jewel of a Cornish holiday apartment.

Although the 'on the beach' location Lower Saltings is only a few footsteps away from all that St Ives town has to offer.

About Terrasa Glinski

We are a local Cornish family and have two children , Madison aged eleven and Samantha ninteen.

My husband ,Stefan Glinski , is a local Sardine fishermen who has been fishing since a very young age. He was born in St Ives and has been fishing in and around the Cornish coast line for over forty years.

Myself, Terrasa Glinski , I work in our family business 'The Fresh and Freeze co Ltd' as well as managing our little gem' Lower Saltings'

Our eleven year old daughter , Madison Glinski , is a local celebrity . She made a New Years resolution Christmas 2013 to raise £500 for our local childrens hospice 'Little Harbour' by busking on the streets of St Ives with her violin.

She has now raised over £52,500 and has a new target of £75,000.

You can follow her fundraising journey on facebook Madison Glinski Fundraiser.

Our ninteen year old , Samantha Glinski , is studying Bio Chem at Westminster Uni in London.

Terrasa Glinski purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Terrasa Glinski chose St Ives

We feel so lucky to own such a wonderful apartment. Both myself and husband spent our childhood on Porthmeor beach . Being such an attractive building from the outside you can't help but look over to Lower Saltings and admire it. Her history of once housing the lifeboat 'Hope' and named after the salting of the fish store, really does seem to blend in with our family and history.

What makes this apartment unique

From the moment you enter Lower Saltings you are struck by its uninterrupted breath taking views across the beach and out to sea. The beautiful arched window and seat makes a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the famous sunsets of Porthmeor beach.

The added benefit of being a ground floor apartment with private parking really helps to ensure that you have a stressful relaxing stay.

Just beautiful. A real gem.

  • 5 of 5

This was possibly the best holiday we've ever had in the UK.

It was a gift to my husband for a milestone birthday and I could not have chosen better.

My review will really only echo what other visitors to Lower Saltings have already said . The apartment is an absolute gem and is situated in the most perfect location. Terrasa's attention to detail is without fault - she's thought of everything to make your stay as happy and as comfortable as possible.

It's easy to forget that this is a business because, having met Terrasa and her lovely family, you feel as though you are staying at a friend's apartment.

We have a four year old daughter and Terrasa's kindness and thoughtfulness made this an extra special holiday for her too. Add to that the beautiful beach and sea and she was one very happy little girl.

Would we return? YES! I would recommend Lower Saltings to anyone. It's perfect!

We found our perfect holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

Since the first time we stepped into 1 Lower Saltings 17 years ago and saw that view we knew we had found our perfect place.

It has changed so much over the years since our 1st visit but never more than it has since Teressa and Stefan bought it.

I don't think Grand Designs could have done a better job of transforming this apartment into what it has become.

Every single little thing that could be done to give the guests sheer luxury and relaxation is there for you. From the luxury welcome hamper, fluffy bathrobes, slippers, flowers, Prosecco, to the luxury quality of all furniture and fittings.

The bed is so comfortable if it wasn't for the sheer pleasure of getting up for your morning view of Porthmeor beach you would want to stay there!

We have stayed in many apartments over our 44 years of marriage and not one has come close to compare with this.

We will be back next year to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary in this very special place.

We feel privileged to have discovered this gem of a holiday apartment and would recommend it very highly to anyone.

Teressa and Stefan are the perfect hosts and go far and beyond what you would expect.

Can't wait to return.

Taste of luxury in St Ives

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience in a beautiful apartment with a stunning sea view. We chose to enjoy our honeymoon with a taste of luxury and we were not disappointed. If you fancy living the high life you really cannot beat this fantastic holiday apartment. Every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations and we look forward to staying again in the future.

BEACHFRONT BLISS

  • 5 of 5

Lower Saltings is ideally located right on Porthmeor Beach, with the living/dining room looking straight out to sea. Unusually, the apartment has a secure courtyard parking space in this parking-space starved town.

The apartment is charming, tasteful, comfortably appointed, and in excellent decorative order. Full suites of matching crockery, glass and cutlery complement an excellent array of utensils for the small but convenient laid-out and well equipped kitchen (nice touches such as full bottle of squeezy liquid, full salt & pepper grinders, etc show unusual level of customer care). All fittings are to a very high standard.

A very generous welcome pack with fresh fruit and flowers was on the table. Most particularly, Terrasa and Stefan couldn't have been more attentive and welcoming - despite a major (& romantic!) storm raging as we arrived. A couple of minor snags during the stay were swiftly and efficiently dealt with.

An ideal oasis in an idyllic location.

1st class hols made easier by parking included

  • 5 of 5

Simply beautiful apartment with the most wonderful window ledge seat and luxury accommodation.Tended to extremely well by the owner who will go the extra mile and provide milk, fruit, little luxuries and flowers which will eventually small divine.... The parking slot, a godsend , in this quaint but sometimes overcrowded seaside harbour town. Beach location- literally.....
