About Graham and Marie Barker
Graham and Marie own this property. We live in Hampshire.
Graham and Marie Barker purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Graham and Marie Barker chose St Ives
The property is in a great location, St Ives has been described as 'the jewel in Cornwall's crown' with a mild climate, fantastic bars, restaurants, shops and beaches all within easy reach. As artists, we enjoy exploring the many galleries for inspiration and as foodies we enjoy being within walking distance to the centre of town and bars and restaurants. Whether you want to surf, eat, relax, shop, visit galleries or simply chill, we love visiting St Ives and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
When we're away, we want to be able to relax locally as well as explore the area and a parking space is extremely convenient in St Ives as we believe everything needs to be easy when on holiday. The apartment warms up quickly with the storage heaters and has everything you need to hand for your convenience. It is a quick drive to Tesco (which you pass on the way into St Ives) or a walk down to the Co-op.

Immaculate and comfortable
Impressed with the quality of fittings and decor. I cooked most days during my stay and the kitchen is well-equipped which is not always the case in holiday lets. Hills are steep so I was glad that my new hip was in place. Having said that, proximity of apt to town, beach and train station is a major benefit. Many thanks for your help when I was booking also.

A beautifully appointed little apartment set within easy walking distance of the town of St Ives.
A perfectly clean and very comfortable apartment with special homely touches throughout. A parking space right outside the door is definitely an added bonus as parking is difficult in St Ives. A welcoming, relaxing place to come home to after a day on the beach or in town. Couldn't recommend it highly enough and will definitely return.
Perfect sized accommodation for my wife and I with every amenity we needed with the real bonus being able to park our car right outside the property . Ideally situated just minutes walking distance from the nearest beaches and the town centre.
Would recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to return.
Unfortunately the apartment was unsuitable for my husband's needs. Everything was too low, the sofa, the toilet, chairs but particularly the bed which was also too close to the walls on both sides so it was impossible for us to stay 11 nights and we came home after one. Very disappointing as we had been looking forward to St Ives.
We are extremely sorry to hear that the apartment was not suitable for your husband,
But at the time of booking we had no idea of your husband’s needs,
The toilet, sofa, chairs and double bed are all normal size items.
Fantastic property with easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants. We found walking down to The Harbour Hotel and having a drink overlooking the sea amazing with it not being too busy too. Would definitely stay again, excellent correspondence with the owners prior to staying. Only one criticism is that a proper iron would of been handy but only because we were unorganised not to iron things before we arrived. Thanks very much.
Very clean and comfortable
Very good location
300m to Porthnminster beach, approx a 5 minute walk.

Or take a leisurely walk along the coastal footpath, perhaps, south to Lelant with the opportunity to return by train or opt for a more energetic hike west towards Zennor.
