Great location, plenty of space, clean & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A really good location down (and up!) a set of steps to the town, but not as many steps as some locations in St Ives. 5 mins walk to Porthminster Beach & the harbour. We were 5 adults and found the upper floor apartment spacious and spotless. There are 4 bedrooms, one lovely large shower ensuite on the living room floor and two further doubles shower en-suites on the top floor with another single bedroom. There's a family bathroom on the living room floor. The view over the harbour is fantastic and worth some time just watching people and the tides. There are a couple of steep staircases in the property and another steep set outside so it may not suit people with mobility issues. For location, cleanliness, comfort and value, it gets the thumbs up from us.

Breath taking views over St ives !!!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we met the owner who was very friendly and upon inspection we were verry happy to find the house was very spacious and clean,couldn't be in a better location only a two minute walk from the shops and far reaching views over st ives village and harbour,better value for money than any other accomodation in the area and had parking outside also Sarah put us in touch with a gentleman who offered private parking nearby for additional cars,will stay again possibly this year !!
