About the property

Two Bedroom Apartment, Sleeps 4

What immediately strikes you as you walk into Sea Spirit is the view. Words and photos do their best to describe or illustrate just how gorgeous it is but experiencing it for real is the only way to appreciate just how breath-taking the view is and how it changes constantly with the light and tides.

Sea Spirit offers a warm welcome, is very comfortable and modern throughout. There are two bedrooms at the rear of the apartment both with their own ensuite bathrooms. There is a double bed in one of the rooms and a zip and link bed in the other that can either be two 3ft single beds or a super king size bed. The kitchen has integrated appliances including a washing machine and dishwasher as well as a large fridge/ freezer, oven and induction hob. The dining table has to offer the best spot to dine in the whole of St Ives! Outside there is a lovely tiered terrace with benches where you can sit and enjoy the views with the sun on your face. The terrace can be enjoyed by all 4 apartment occupants of 7 Barnoon Terrace where Sea Spirit is the penthouse apartment.

The living room has two comfortable sofas, a Smart TV and freeview channels plus there are two USB port sockets provided to play your music to the harman/kardon speaker. Having free WiFi means you can stream music or TV through to your own devices or enjoy catch up TV or choose a film to watch on Netflix.

Sea Spirit is on the top floor of the building, so you will need to climb a couple of flights of internal stairs which means it is not ideal for younger children or anyone not able to cope with too many steps.

The stroll into town takes no more than a few minutes and you can pop out either at Barbara Hepworths’ museum, Fore Street shops or opposite Porthmeor beach. The nearest public car park is at Barnoon which is just a couple of minutes’ away on foot.

Artists from the 19th Century moved to St Ives for its exquisite light and coastal scenes. Two of these artists actually lived on Barnoon Terrace, one was Whistler who used to paint the energetic sea and scenery on old cigar lids and the other who actually lived in Sea Spirit of old is Stanhope Forbes (thh founding member of Newlyn school of painters) and you will see a letter of his addressed from 7 Barnoon Terrace to his wife exhibited at the Tate Gallery.

One allocated parking space provided for your exclusive use half a mile from Sea Spirit, approximately 12 minutes' walk.

What a lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week at Sea Spirit in St Ives, and what a lovely base for a holiday it was. The apartment is perfectly located and in a blink of an eye you can either be into the town, with all that it has to offer, or down on Porthmeor beach. The allocated parking space was a 10minute stroll away, but this wasn't too much of an issue as we only left St Ives a couple times during the week we were there as there was plenty to see and do. The panoramic views from Sea Spirit were an absolute delight which meant we spent more time there than we typically would. Sitting and eating breakfast whilst looking out over the harbour was great, and similarly in the evenings, we opted to bring our Fish and Chips back 'home' to get out of the firing line of the opportunistic seagulls. The apartment is well furnished, and the provision of WI-FI and Netflix, was an added bonus. We will definitely be looking to come back to St Ives again, and are hopeful Sea Spirit will be available for our next stay

Gorgeous property finished to a very high standard. Lovely welcome pack! At the top of a hill but we negotiated a pram and had our 3 year old climbing the steps! Fabulous location! We are going to book again! Thank you so much x

We absolutely loved our stay at Sea Spirit. It was extremely comfortable and well appointed and the location and view can't be beat. The suggestions from Sam prior to our stay were incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed every detail. Will definitely come again!

Top notch property.

  • 5 of 5

All things considered this must rank amongst the top places to stay in St Ives.

Only stayed Monday to Friday in December and both my wife and I were amazed when we walked in and saw the view from the windows in the living room, it's better than the photos show by far. I've never watched dolphins from the sofa before but you can here.

The attention to detail is spot on along with the quality and cleanliness of the property, the showers, beds and everything else far exceeded the usual for a holiday let. It remained warm and comfortable despite the howling gale and rain during our stay not that we were indoors much as there is so much to do and see in Cornwall.

I would certainly recommend Sea Spirit as somewhere that will make a big impression and be an asset to any holiday in St Ives.
