Fantastic stay in a superb location. Many thanks.

Nov 2018

Very comfortable, well furnished and equipped apartment. But the biggest selling point is the stunning location overlooking the town and beach. Would highly recommend an early rise to watch a magnificent sunrise.

Fantastic location with panoramic views of the sea.

We had a beautiful New Year break here. We had the best seats in St Ives for the fireworks watching from the balcony. A short walk to the town and beaches, everything we needed in the apartment. We would definitely recommend.

Having stayed at many properties in St Ives over the last forty years, this is our firm favourite and the one that we keep returning to.
