2 Bedroom Four Star Gold Luxury Apartment just twelve metres from the beach
About Adrian White
From the North of England but always had a yearning to live in St Ives. Been travelling down from Manchester area with my parents initially when I was only a young boy and has continued to this day. The love of Cornwall , and in particular St Ives , has never left me and I decided to buy Harbour Sands in 2003 when it went up for sale. The property was in a very sorry state when I bought it but with much tender loving care and lots of hard earned money have created a beautiful and luxurious apartment in a prime location for all holiday makers and lovers of this very special town.
Adrian White purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Adrian White chose Saint Ives
The opportunity to purchase a sea front apartment with such amazing views was simply too good to miss. The apartment has everything to offer in a most special location. Everything the town has to offer is on the doorstep with no hills to climb which can be a major issue in St Ives for many people. To sit in the window with a glass of wine in hand simply people watching or looking out for seals or watching the launching of the Lifeboat which takes place weekly right outside your window is as relaxing and enjoyable as life gets.
What makes this Apartment unique
Very few properties can offer the very special views that we offer . The beautiful harbour beach on a sunny afternoon is a very special sight and is right outside your window. Boats, fishermen , seals and children jumping into the crystal clear waters from the little pier are all there to be viewed and enjoyed. Location is everything in St Ives and Harbour Sands is right where you want to be to enjoy your special holiday.

Fantastic location, but a bit too noisy
Overall the property is in a fantastic position, right on the seafront. It is, however, let down by the very scruffy and smelly back entrance which is at the back of some of the harbour front restaurants. The alley way is littered with food, mess and generally very untidy. Also the noise levels are really high - doors banging, staff from the restaurants talking, smoking loudly at night, dragging of bins and beer barrels, music and recycling containers of glass bottles being emptied. Such a shame, as the apartment itself is very nice and comfortable. A couple of issues with cleaning within the flat as well - floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed for a while and the placemats on the table were very dirty. Sorry for the negatives, but I'd rather be honest. We've stayed in St Ives lots of time and probably wouldn't use this property again because of the noise issues.
Right on the harbour front, you can never get tired of that beautiful view and all the goings on.
We travelled with a toddler and found the flat very practical - open plan living and stairgate in place for back bedroom.
Bedrooms were spacious and shower is powerful. Kitchen appliances all easy to use. We ate out a lot so it didn’t matter that there was no dishwasher.
Would definitely return.
Thank you so much for your positive review. We really care what our customers think. We aim to provide a really good experience.
I hope we can welcome you back to Harbour Sands in the near future.
