Wharf Watch - Morwenstow 8 Porthminster, St Ives

£774 - £2030 per week

Wharf Watch offers you relaxed and unique accommodation in an unrivalled position in the heart of the bay. Located just five minutes from Porthminster beach, Morwenstow apartments offer breathtaking views to Godrevy Lighthouse and beyond. This upper garden level apartment is spacious so you'll have plenty of room to enjoy your family time together.

When the kids are tucked up in bed or watching a film on their own Smart TV you can claim the evening for yourselves whilst you relax on the balcony with a glass of wine, watching the beautiful views. The kitchen is kitted out to a high specification but if you choose to escape the cooking completely you can enjoy the best local cafe bars and restaurants - you'll be absolutely spoilt for choice! With each apartment having their own parking space within a secure gated area, you can come and go as you please. No need to get in the car for St Ives town though as it's a pleasant 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants or the water's edge of Porthminster beach. A path leading from the landscaped gardens winds its way onto the coastal path where you can reach either St Ives or Carbis Bay within a very enjoyable half an hour. Either way, you end up on a beach of fine sand and calm waters where normally the young or old amongst you can swim, paddle or partake in some gentle water sports. For the livelier, Porthmeor beach is on the other side of the town where the waves are some of the best to learn to surf or perfect your style.


from the parking space through the right-hand side of the complex, down the communal stairs to lower ground floor into the apartment. Hallway with doors leading to:


large L-shaped sofa, knitted footstool, Smart TV, Bose iPod dock, dining table with four chairs, patio doors leading to private balcony with outside furniture, stunning view.

It was a beautiful, fabulously decorated spacious apartment. Great to having parking. Perfect views. Lovely welcome pack. It was a great base for us to have for St Ives as we love walking.

Highly recommend this stunning apartment. We stayed with our 2 young children and loved the large kids bedroom and that we could walk to at least 5 beautiful beaches from the door. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in St.Ives.
