About Paul Stayne

Paul and Sheila are retired and 'living the dream' in Cornwall. We personally supervise the running of the apartment, 'Island View'. We live in St Ives and are usually on hand to sort out any queries.

Why Paul Stayne chose St Ives

We love this quiet residential part of St Ives, which nevertheless is near the beach and amenities. The apartment sleeps four in comfort and has its own garage! All make a recipe for a perfect holiday in Cornwall.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a local shop for all essentials and the main shops are only a 10 minute walk away. Porthmeor Beach is at the bottom of the hill and we have a garage as well as occasional parking outside the apartment. This, together with great sea views and a balcony make this your ideal holiday accommodation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Paul, we had a fabulous holiday, and the apartment was just perfect... we had a very peaceful week!

We would not hesitate to recommend the apartment and would use it again next time we visit St Ives.

Dear Paul

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at island View - thank you.

Hello Paul, I just wanted to write to say thank you for a wonderful stay at Island View. Andy and I both loved the apartment and found it comfortable, well-stocked and perfectly located. We really enjoyed our stay very much!

The property was a joy to stay in over the last fortnight. Thank you for being an excellent host.

Car: not necessary


There are 5 beaches in St Ives each with their own character and with different orientation. Porthmeor Beach with its sun-bleached sands is the main surfing beach and is overlooked by the Tate Gallery. It also has two beach cafes. It is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment. But also check out Porthgwidden and Porthminster Beaches. There is a footpath adjacent to the apartments which connects directly to Man's Head and the coastal path. The harbour and shops are about a 15 minute walk away.


If travelling by train alight at St Erth and take the coastal train to St Ives. It is a memorable experience! You will need a taxi from St Ives station to the apartment. I provide directions and a map for those travelling by car.

Further Details:

St Ives, with its pretty cobbled streets, boasts excellent restaurants, historical buildings, a cinema, theatres and many galleries including, of course, the Hepworth Garden and Tate St Ives. The St Ives School of Painting offers drop-in art classes. Above all we have some of the best beaches in the country with golden sands and wonderful surf. The September Festival, (middle two weeks of Sep) should not be missed for its great music, drama, poetry and special exhibitions.
