Nothing ever missed, very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We have been here several times and always felt very comfortable. The apartment is really modern and nicely decorated, especially the kitchen is very well equipped. There are real stunning views, and this is not promised too much! And one step beyond you find the probably best Cornish surf spot.

Now with Wi-Fi inside one more reason for coming back again. If it is still available ...

Fabulous Easter Break....

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a perfect location. We were grateful for the uphill walk back to the apartment after some fantastic meals! The use of the garage was a definite plus. We enjoyed lovely walks, great food, lively pubs all on the doorstep. Even though the weather was changeable, it did not affect the enjoyment of our stay. Hope to secure a week next year with our deposit from this break. Fabulous!!!

A great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with great views and close to the town centre with all its facilities but it's still very quiet - it was also clean and well appointed. The balconies were a definite plus - when it wasn't lashing down! Porthmeor beach, one of the best surfing and body boarding beaches in Cornwall, is only 100m away (albeit steep!) and the lovely family beach at Porthminster is only a 15 minute walk. The town centre is another (steep!) 5 minute walk to a good variety of pubs (we liked The Sloop and The Lifeboat) and bakers/eateries.

All the arrangements were handled efficiently and we got our deposit back very quickly. The garage is quite small - I couldn't quite fit my Mondeo in it and still close the door - and a 5 minute walk away but it saves the trauma and cost of parking in the long stay car park outside the building (this was very busy when we were there with few, if any, spaces). All in all, a great apartment which we would recommend and probably use again if we were to visit St Ives again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this great review. Glad you enjoyed your stay and experienced body boarding. If you have got hooked on boarding and want to return next October half term, be quick. The week must have been good as the guests staying in Surf's Up next door used their damage deposit to re book for October 2016 half term!

Great stay in St Ives

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment that's homely, well-equipped, close to the main streets of St Ives - plus it has fantastic views. We would definitely recommend it as a place to stay when exploring St Ives and surrounding areas- a great escape from city life. Ian and Caroline were very efficient in managing the booking.

Top notch place!

  • 5 of 5

Modern, stylish, well equipped apartment with beautiful views from the 2 balconies across to the harbour and beyond. Within a 5 minute walk you could be at Porthmour beach, Tate gallery or the centre of the old town and harbour. Found garage parking useful (5-10 walk was fine as did not use the car every day). Dealing with Ian and Carline was efficient and they made the booking process easy even though it was a last minute booking. We would recommend this apartment to all our family and friends and would love to stay again in the future!

Wave 5 is in the heart of St Ives a lovely historic Cornish fishing village with a maze of cobbled streets jumbled with restaurants, galleries, pubs and clubs. Its many attractions are activities such as swimming, surfing, body boarding, walking, tennis, horse riding, scuba diving and deep sea fishing. Take the scenic train journey to Carbis bay beach or all the way to St Erth and back. St Ives has a history in the pilchard trade and during the season there is an opportunity to join 'Shanty Baba', to hear some of the local tales. Food is on offer in restaurants, cafes and pubs offering fresh locally caught fish. Entertainment in the summer can be found at the open air theatre not too far away. Other attractions near by are the Eden Project, Flambards and the gardens at Helygon close to the Helford River. The main attraction in St Ives is of course the Tate gallery and that's open all year round, two minutes away from our apartment. For more info see

Other Activities: TATE ST IVES.
