The apartment was in a fantastic position, overlooking Porthminster beach and St Ives harbour. Everything was spotlessley clean and the owner had left complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits. It was a lovely peaceful setting but only 5 minutes walk from St Ives. We really look forward to coming back to the same place again. Thank you Alan for a fabulous stay.
Beautifully furnished, well appointed. We felt right at home here. Wi-Fi was great. Hubby enjoyed the sports on telly. Ideally situated for short walk along pathway into the town. The view from the verandah was right over Porthminster beach. Parking space is right next to front door, so very convenient for loading and unloading our car. The driveway is steep, but was not a problem. We would certainly stay here again, as it ticked all the boxes. A two minute walk to the Porthminster Beach Cafe, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Probably best food we had in St Ives.
The Apartment suited us perfectly. The location was excellent for walking into St Ives yet also very quiet. The dedicated parking space is a major asset in St Ives and being within a few minutes’ walk of the station made trips on the train very easy. Inside, the flats was well equipped though we did find the TV instructions and controls baffling, probably our age! All in all the flat worked well for us.
The Apartment is in a beautiful spot with a view of Portminster beach from the balcony and bedroom.. Although ground floor, it is at the top of a steep drive but this is short. Lovely and peaceful, it is only a few minutes walk into the hustle and bustle of St Ives along a path running parallel to the bay. St Ives station is along this path (3 mins from the apartment) and the little train which ran every 30 mins takes you to St Erth station along the coastal route which has stunning views. The ride to St Erth takes about 20 minutes and from there, trains run to Truro, Falmouth, Penzance etc, although check the timetable before heading off as they are not frequent. As two friends, we loved the 2 ensuite bedrooms with good showers and very comfortable big beds. The chandelier in the lounge was huge and the dimmers on all the lighting made the place very cosy. A modern apartment in a lovely old building with its own parking space. A nice touch when we arrived was a tray with chocolate shortbread biscuits, tea and ground coffee for the cafetière. Within a few minutes walk one evening, we ate at the Portminster Beach restaurant. Thoroughly recommend it - good service, excellent food, again stunning views out to sea. We also went for just a coffee one morning and had the same service and good coffee. Glad we chose the Apartment for all the above reasons. An excellent week's holiday.
This 2 bedroom apartment was just what we needed for our 4 family vacation. The view of the beach from the balcony was beautiful and the location was close to town. The ginger biscuits awaiting us was my guilty pleasure. Alan was easy to communicate with and the information packet sent before our arrival was very helpful.
