Flat 2, immediately below Flat 4 on the first floor, shares the amazing views stretching 180 degrees from Porthmeor right round to Carbis Bay and down the coast. Flat 2 is a studio flat - the good sized room with that amazing view from its large bay window has a pull down bed. It's very comfortable, and it is easily hidden in its wall unit, bedding in place. There’s TV with Freeview, a DVD player, and broadband internet access.
You can also see the sea from the kitchen, which is well equipped with gas hob, electric oven, microwave oven, toaster and kettle. The bathroom has an in-bath thermostatic shower with glass shower screen.
Short breaks – minimum 3 nights - are available at quieter times, or at the last moment, just ask. Our garage can be hired when it's available.
Seabirds House is a large Edwardian sea-captain's house with a very commanding position overlooking St Ives and the sea in all directions. The views are superb - even window cleaners are amazed by them! It’s almost unique in St Ives to be able to see both the crashing waves on the Porthmeor surf beach, and the sheltered harbour beach – and you can see right around St Ives Bay and down the north Cornwall coast too. Godrevy Terrace is quiet with very little passing traffic - you'll only hear the wind, the seagulls and the sea itself. Yet it's 2 or 3 minutes down the hill to the lively heart of this bustling little holiday town, and equally quick to get to the 3 main beaches. It takes a little longer to walk back up the very steep hill - so Seabirds may not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The flats are bright and modern, comfortable and convenient with everything you need for a holiday, but we don't claim to provide "luxury" accommodation and we don't have dishwashers or very posh kitchens so our prices are reasonable. Our 2 bedroom, family flats do have washer/dryers and allocated parking spaces, and there’s a garage that can be hired by anyone staying in one of our other flats.
Hello! We are Mary and Henry Brown, the owners.
We live in London and have a wonderful team of people in St Ives who help us to take care of Barnoon and Seabirds House. Henry looks after any issues with the building, and I manage the bookings. I really enjoy the contact with our guests - many regulars feel like friends even when all the contact has been by email.
Apart from St Ives and family, our main interest is sailing - in a dinghy on the Thames and a bigger boat on the sea.
Mary Brown purchased this apartment in 2000
In 1998 we bought a little flat in Barnoon Terrace, having fallen in love with St Ives, and the view. We let it as well as using it ourselves from the start. Then we saw another property just up the hill which was in a very sorry state indeed. We bought it and had the inside completely rebuilt, turning the original 7 flatlets into 5 lovely flats, taking full advantage of the view. This is Seabirds House.
and we think the position and views are unbeatable.
The flats are bright and cheerful, IKEA style. No chintz!
Short breaks are often possible at quieter times or at the last moment. Our short break pricing formula is weekly rate divided by 7, multiplied by the number of nights, plus £25.
The minimum is 3 nights.
Changeover day for weekly bookings is Saturday, with arrival at any time after 3pm, and departure before 10am.
The flats are no smoking, and sorry, no pets.
To make a booking please email or phone me and I will send you a booking form. We ask for £50 per week deposit, and the balance one month before your holiday. On our own website there's also an online booking system.
Bedlinen is provided, towels can be hired. It is £10 for a batch of towels for 2 people (2 hand, bath and teatowels). Other quantities on request.
The garage is £50 per week. The garage door is only 7ft wide so check your car before booking. Once inside, there's more space so you will be able to open the doors!
Wonderful views of the sea. Enjoyed being here in the winter. 5 minutes walk to the harbour.
love staying in flat 2 seabirds and enjoying the amazing views - more time to gaze at st ives even when resting after walks can still enjoy the wonderful views . watching the sunsets and sunrises in bed is such a treat. This is our third stay here - it is a great location just a few minutes from town yet very quiet. surf beach also easy to get to from the flat which my other half appreciated.
Clean, compact apartment right in the heart of St Ives! It's in the perfect location for exploring all the fabulous beaches, shops and restaurants that St Ives has to offer...it is situated at the top of a hill, so those with mobility problems may struggle...but the climb up there is worth it as the panoramic views of the harbour and the sea from the living area are amazing!! We had a great week away and would definitely return for future holidays :-)
I stayed in flat 2 for 3 nights. It was absolutely lovely, really great stunning views of both the beach and the harbour. Very good location, within 2/3 min walk of the shops in the village, and a 2 min walk to the beach. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone.
A fantastic roomy studio with incredible views.
Have stayed in seabirds flats many times now and you can't beat the views.
St Ives is a beautiful quaint Cornish harbour town with lots to do
We had an amazing stay here and our flat was clean, well equipped and managed perfectly - 5 stars!! We even got engaged!
