19 Piazza Porthmeor, St Ives

£456 - £1257

19 Piazza is a very quirky and retro beach side apartment, with absolutely stunning views over Porthmeor beach. You can nip straight to the beach and within minutes you can be in the town centre. It is a top floor maisonette of a striking 1960s block of apartments, built on Porthmeor beach. The apartment has two balconies for you to enjoy. One facing East over the town, and the other facing West over the beach, so you can be guaranteed to make the most of the weather. The majority of the original 1960's fixtures and fittings are in place and the furniture also reflects this style.

The apartment is split over three floors and consists of two downstairs bedrooms and one bathroom. Entry level, open-plan living/kitchen/dining room with the balcony overlooking the beach. There is also a small mezzanine level which leads to the private balcony facing the harbour and the town - this can be a real sun trap! The apartment used to be owned by artist F.E.McWilliam, whose family still own the property today. They recently found out that David Bowie held some of his artwork in his own private collection!

We had an amazing time at 19 Piazza. We've stayed in many places in Cornwall but this location can't be beaten. The views from the main bedroom and balcony are spectacular and the direct access to the beach very handy. The apartment has a charming mix of retro and modern, plus lots of extras to make it feel homely.

Miss Wiles

We had a fantastic anniversary here! The views literally took our breaths away as we entered the property. Waking up to the view of Porthmeor was incredible! Couldn't have asked for better!
