Our flats are located just 5 minutes walk to the town, harbour and Porthminster beach, and about 10 minutes walk to Porthmeor beach and the Tate & Barbara Hepworth Galleries. We are ideally positioned with easy access to all the local shops, galleries. bars and restaurants.

We ask that loud music is not played after 10pm.
Clare & Neil are joint owners of Sam's Place and Andy's Place, 13 Park Avenue, St Ives. We moved to Cornwall from Bradford in 2008. Clare was already running her successful interior design company, CH Design, and decided to continue the business in Cornwall. It was with these skills that she and Neil undertook the full refurbishment of 13 Park Avenue, in preparation for letting the apartments out for holiday use. "It was in 2009 that we began to let the apartments. We love Cornwall, and know we've made the right decision in moving here...and of course we are continually meeting new people through our business, with many becoming good friends as they return to our apartments year after year".
The main reasons for purchasing 13 Park Avenue, aside from it being in the wonderful location of St Ives, was for the spectacular view out over the pretty harbour and town.
It is conveniently situated just on the edge of the town, which means we get the best of both worlds: we are just 5 minutes walk form the town centre, but also in a more quiet residential area. This is ideal for families and groups who may love the hustle and bustle of the town and beaches during the daytime, but want a more peaceful quiet place to escape back to for relaxation later.
Sam's Place has the additional benefit of a back garden, which gets sunshine throughout most of the day and is a really peaceful sun trap. The late evening sunshine reaches the upper terrace of the garden during the summer months, which is fantastic for BBQs.
Andy's Place has a small front garden that also benefits from late afternoon & evening sunshine. It's lovely to sit and dream, with that evening drink in hand, just soaking in the lovely view.

We had a fabulous time in St Ives and Andy's Place was lovely to return to after a day out exploring the area. The flat was clean, bright and very comfortable with great views across the harbour.
The owners Clare and Neil were very welcoming and provided great customer service. I would definitely recommend Andy's Place to friends and family and we will definitely be returning for another stay!
This was the second time that we have stayed in Andy's Place, the first being in the summer season. We found the flat to be clean and comfortable and the interior design and facilities excellent so it was an easy decision to book again. The biggest selling point for me though is the amazing view from the bay window. I found myself just sitting there watching the movements in the harbour and the bay.
The flat was warm and cosy and has a very nice well equipped dining kitchen. The children love the built in bunk beds in their bedroom. We found the location convenient with a car park at the end of the terrace and a Co-op supermarket (and pub) at the bottom of the nearby steps. (You quickly get used to steps in St Ives.)
The owners Clare and Neil met us on arrival to hand over the keys and chatted with us for ages about pubs and restaurants, walks and other beaches to visit by car. We will stay there again before the kids grow out of holidaying with mum and dad.
We've been coming to this fantastic holiday home since 2008 and I cannot reccomend it enough. Fabulous decor throughout, hugely spacious, spotless clean and perfect location. Luxurious and cosy at same time. Amazing views from the window - ideal to sit late into the night with a glass of wine, looking at the harbour and lighthouses in the distance. A home from home. Perfect for families or couples. A truly gorgeous flat which you will also want to return to. Visitors upstairs always revisit too. Easy location for supermarket delivery vans, and we arrange for our Sainsburys shop to arrive when we do. Clare and Neil (owners) could not be lovelier. They are always there with support from booking through to dealing with anything during the stay. BOOK NOW!
As a family we have stayed at Andy's place every year since the birth of our daughter, this makes our 8th. The flat has stunning views, brilliant amenities and is perfectly located to enjoy everything that St.Ives has to offer. For us it is like a home from home.
The kitchen has everything you need to make family meals, the bedrooms are light and modern. There is a TV, playstation, a fantastic selection of games and loads of books. Previous residents, including ourselves, leave behind beach toys so there is a lot there. If you are looking for somewhere to enjoy a lovely stress free holiday with your family I cannot recommend Andy's place enough. The owners Claire and Neil are a great pair who have gone out of their way to ensure that you will have a brilliant holiday. As you can guess we'll be back next year for holiday number 9.
property has everything you need
great central location
car park nearby (which can be a real problem in St. Ives!)
contact with the owners was good
there was still sand on the floor and sofas from last occupant
dirty glasses in the cupboard
it smelled damp
bed was the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on, my back is still getting over it
not enough lighting - flat was quite dark and dingy when it came to evening
