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.
