Why Dave & Liz Waterfall chose St Ives area

It has amazing views, is perfectly located, a short walk to the beach and has the benefits of a new modern property with the character of a historic granite building.

There is off road parking in front of the property which makes it very convenient for guests.

When we first arrived and walked in to the living area the view is breath taking

  • 5 of 5

There are a couple of little pointers, the setee in the master bedroom would be better off being a dressing table, the dishwasher wasn't working properly which we let Claire know about, not that it botherd us, we also never received an E:Mail from yourselfs regarding entry to the property but Claire was very helpful, apart from those little isues we throughly enjoyed our stay it is a beautiful property with a stunning view and also in walking distance to St.ives which was a god send for me as I drive for a living so left the car. We will return as it was so relaxing,

Beautiful place and view to match

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is delightful, well fitted out and has a great view over the bay. It is a perfect base to explore the area or just go to the beach. The use of the spa facilities only 100 yards away is a great bonus too.

Fantastic apartment with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Porthminster View is a fantastic place to stay. The apartment offers all you need with a real feel of luxury but the views are what makes this apartment even more special. We didn't want to go home! Excellent location, proximity to the beach is great, particularly if you have young children like we have. Would definitely stay here again!

Excellent apartment - equipped to a high standard. Wind break and children's beach buckets useful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very relaxing two weeks - apartment enjoys beautiful views and is great location. Having a car park space proved very useful. Would definitely recommend this property as an ideal base for a family holiday.
