About So St Ives

We have loved St Ives ever since holidaying here many years ago. Having previously lived in Birmingham and London we eventually managed to fulfil our dream and make the move to Cornwall.

We now live in St Ives, and absolutely love it!

Alan and Sharon

Why So St Ives chose Saint Ives

The apartment at Carrack Widden has such a stunning view you can't fail to be impressed and instantly relaxed.

We love St Ives and Porthminster is our favourite beach, so the view over the beach and bay beyond is very special to us.

The apartment was in need of updating but is now well and truly worthy of its superb location.

What makes this apartment unique

Central St Ives with car parking!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect base for our holiday. So close to the beach and the most breathtaking views whatever the weather! Jill and John K

Thanks for a brilliant holiday. David A

Really nice property once you gain access

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the first impression was not that great from the outside however once inside the property has the wow factor. Furnishings all of a really good standard and well equipped.

The view across the bay was Mesmerising and the location is just a short walk into St Ives.

We had a great holiday and would book again.

Great stay but needs a clean

  • 4 of 5

Great location, amazing views, parking only criticism the apartment is dirty and collecting/taking the key to the cafe is a bit of a nightmare in the height of summer. Overall we had a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback which is much appreciated. Just wanted to inform you that the apartment has now been completely re-designed and re-furbished to a high standard. As well as new fixtures, fittings and furnishings you will be pleased to hear that we have a new cleaner with much higher standards! We are hoping to resolve the issue of picking the keys up by having them in a key safe at the property so you can arrive at your own convenience. If you are interested in staying again then please do get in touch.

A lovely modern and clean apartment situated in the ideal location with secure parking

  • 5 of 5

Just had the most fantastic week in ST Ives. The apartment is in the perfect location, looking out over the sea and within a few minutes walk from the harbour and town. We spent our week between the 4 sandy beaches, which are all within walking distance. Our daughter spent the week looking round the galleries, too many she lost count!. We would recommend BLAS burgers as a great place to eat.

The Blue View apartment is fully equipped with everything you need, very modern and what a view. Will be booking for next year thanks for a fantastic holiday.

Great location but..

  • 2 of 5

This apartment is in a wonderful location with stunning views of one of the nicest beaches we have seen anywhere. It also has secure parking which is brilliant in busy St Ives.

Unfortunately, although the apartment is fairly modern with a very nice bathroom 3 things let it down. The worst thing is the damp musty smell which is hard to live with until you buy plug in air fresheners. We had to wash any clothes that we did not wear on holiday as as they had been hung in the wardrobe and smelt.

The bed is very uncomfortable.

Finally it's a let down when the property is advertised with a washing machine yet you have to pay to use the one in the laundry room.

We spent over £25 on air freshener and washing/drying costs .

It's a real shame that the things let the property down because as mentioned the location is stunning ascenery is St Ives.

Owner's Response: Apologies that you encountered problems during your stay at Blue View last summer. The apartment has now been completely refurbished so there should be no more damp! The bed (and all the other furniture) is new and of top quality, so I'm certain you will have a cosy nights sleep on the Hypnos mattress if you were to return. We hope to hear from you again soon.

Dissapointed apart from the view

  • 2 of 5

On arrival strong smell disinfectant in bathroom, replaced by odour that required continual use of extractor fan.The cooker difficult to use, notice on washing machine directing to the launderette,will leave at that,except to say poor value for money paid.

Owner's Response: The cooker and all other appliances are new now that the apartment has been completely refurbished and designed to a high specification. The views remain the same but the apartment is now very different with quality fittings and fixtures. The laundry room is available to all guests but, as you mention, is operated by inserting coins. However, this does free up space in the kitchen for other useful appliances (such as dishwasher) so we apologise that this wasn't made clear on your previous visit. Hopefully you will give Blue View another chance!
