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 St 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.

A lovely comfortable apartment with great views

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment, amazing view that you can just sit on the window seat and watch the world go by.

We were there for 4 days did not need a car as everything is right there and you can walk for miles along the coastal path.

Went to some lovely pubs and ate in some very good restaurants all within minutes walk.

We hope to go back.

Fantastic view, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time, staying at Harbour Sands. The view is amazing, you can spend hours just sitting on the cosy window bench, looking out the window and watching the tide come and go. Also is the location absolutely perfect to visit restaurants, shops or go for a stroll in the nature. Adrian was always very helpful and answered our questions very fast. I totally recommend his flat and would go there again.
