Christmas idyll

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Everything about my Christmas in Laura's delightful penthouse appartment was perfect, from the cream tea that greeted us on arrival to the charming taxi driver who collected us when it was time to go back to our cars. And Laura herself was the perfect host - responding patiently to my somewhat anxious queries, suggesting pleasant things to do and responding calmly and efficiently to a last-minute change of plan.

The appartment itself is compact, but cleverly laid out to give an impression of space and is admirably pristine. We were three adults for part of my stay and there was plenty of room for us to flop onto the deep sofas to admire the view or dine in comfort. However, that being said, you would have to know each other pretty well. The bedroom is also deceptively spacious with plenty of storage and even an Ipod dock, although I preferred to snuggle up under the duvet and listen to the raindrops pattering on the dormer window. (Although there was also plenty of walking on the beach in the sunshine admiring the waves!)

And as for that view, to my mind it is quite simply the best in St Ives and you really don't need any other entertainment than watching the sun rise and set and the tide roll in and out. I did, though, like being in such close proximity to all the restaurants, pubs and cafes. We had a memorable Sunday lunch in the Seafood Cafe just down the street as well as some fortifying glasses of mulled cider in the pub over the road. I had also booked myself in for a Boxing Day of spa treatments at the Harbour Hotel, which was well worth the 10 minute stroll it took to get there.

Were there any disadvantages? Well, it is on the top floor, but hence the view, which to my mind makes it worth it, and if my 80 year-old mother can manage the stairs then so can most people. And a few more glasses and pots and pans wouldn't have gone amiss (I had to be quite creative when cooking my Christmas dinner). But these are only minor niggles and my true estimation of this property is shown in the fact that I would be there now in a heartbeat and that I hope to visit it many more times in both summer and winter for many years to come.
Owner's Response: Thank you Jan, for such a full and hearfelt review, and yes, come back soon and enjoy all that Harbourside Penthouse and St Ives has to offer.
We were just looking at what needs updating in the apartment, and yes you're quite right, we woulld benefit from increasing stocks of glasses and pots and pans. We always like our guests to be perfectly happy with no niggles, so thanks for the useful feedback and all the other useful tips for future guests. Now I am living in St Ives, hopefully I will be able to help guests with anything that crops up during their stay. I'm only sorry that due to family illness I wasn't around during your week to respond to requests. January is the perfect time to upgrade, refresh and renew and we are just having the sofa reupholstered, repainting, replacing the microwave and other important details.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family for many years.
Best wishes

Stunning views over the harbour

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 30, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
The outlook from this apartment over the harbour and sea is absolutely superb. The apartment is situated right in the heart of the old town which was great for the shops. The apartment itself was well equipped, clean and tidy with good quality fixtures. We were a couple with a 16 year old daughter aiming to get “out and about” and the apartment was perfect for our needs ( a 3 remaining in the apartment all day may find it a small space). We would have no hesitation in booking again and look forward to hearing the sea from the apartment again soon.
Owner's Response: So glad you all had a lovely holiday from the heart of St Ives. The view has to be one of the best we reckon, and yes, you're right, the apartment is very spacious for a couple and one small child but isn't as luxurious with 3 or more adults, but perfectly located for everyone to pop in and out at ease, whether to browse the shops, a quick pint, or a stroll on one of the four beaches within moments walk away. Come back and see us soon.
