About Jon and Kathie Butters
My husband and I live in Bristol, UK and regularly visit Cornwall. We like to stay in self catering accommodation for our main family holidays and have set up our apartment to match the high standards that we would expect ourselves.
Jon and Kathie Butters purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Jon and Kathie Butters chose Saint Ives
St Ives is a super place with lovely beaches, the historic harbour and fantastic restaurants. It is wonderful to wander around the old town exploring the little shops and watching artists at work. For the more active there is surfing on Porthmoer beach, golf courses and the coastal paths. It's also a good base for visiting many of the tourist sites of Cornwall. It has something for every age group at all times of the year.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is very convenient, close to the centre of St Ives (5 minutes walk to Porthminster beach, 5 mins to nearest supermarket and 10 minutes to the harbour and centre of town), yet in a quiet location with it's own large parking space allowing easy access. It has a conservatory open plan to the living room which creates a large, light living space. It has its own entrance opening directly to the outside with space to store beach gear, bikes, kayaks and surfboards. The 2 bathrooms are very convenient for when 4 people are staying. The outside patio area has roof top views to the sea and Godrevy Lighthouse and is a secluded place to eat and drink.

St Ives apartment
Lovely apartment in a great spot. Easily walkable into town while having the benefit of parking and being more peaceful. Top of a hill so uphill returning home but we quite liked walking off the pasties etc!
A lovely apartment in St Ives
A fabulous, well appointed and very comfortable apartment. Had everything we needed for a great holiday. Perfectly located very close to arguably the best beach in St Ives (they’re all stunning though). Many thanks for a great stay - will be recommending heartily.
Fabulous St Ives. You never disappoint
Brilliant apartment. Ideally located. Spacious and bright. Warm. Spotlessly clean. Thank you . Would recommend to all.
Great property, well maintained, lovely decor, close to town.
The apartment felt very new, beautifully maintained and we'll designed. Great position just a short walk into the town centre. It was mine & my husband's first time in St Ives & we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay - loved it. The owner and the manager were extremely helpful & efficient, when I left my IPad behind they located it and returned it to me very quickly & very well packaged. Can't wait to return.
Lovely, cosy apartment. Light, bright and spotlessly clean.
Well equipped. Everything you need for a fabulous stay.
The apartment was immaculate, spacious, and light and airy. The location was great.easy access to al
We were very happy with everything...except the instructions for getting into the apartment were not explicit about the lock box. In addition, the heat system did not work and the property manager came to fix it but it still didn’t work so we had to call her m back again:(.It would be nice to have paper towels upon arrival and ice cubes in freezer and laundry detergent. We ended up buying our own but would have brought if we had been forewarned. Now at least the next guests will be better supplied.
Special interest holidays:
The wonderful location of St.Ives makes it ideal for surfing holidays. Both St. St.Ives and near by Gwithian have surf schools running courses through out the year. There are also opportunities for sea kayaking and kite surfing from the nearby beaches and on the estuaries along the coast.
St.Ives is also well renowned as an artists haven due to the special quality of the sunlight. There are several places in St.Ives that run art courses for all levels of artist.
St.Ives is ideal as a base for a walking holiday. The magnificent section of the South West coastal path from St.Ives south to Lands End is directly accessible from St.Ives. Or use it as a base for walking on other sections of the coastal path in Cornwall and inland on the moors.
Beautiful Porthminster Beach, a sheltered beach ideal for young families, is 5 minutes walk from the apartment with its turquoise blue water and clean golden sand. Harbour Beach for boat rides and fishing is 5-10 minutes walk and Porthmoer Beach for surf, surf school, long stretches of sand and rock pools is 10 minutes walk.
The apartment is easy to access by road and has a large private parking space next to the apartment building, although a car is not needed for in St. Ives itself.
The train station and bus station in St. Ives are both very close to the apartment, 5-10 minutes to walk up hill.
Newquay airport is about 1 hour drive away.
St Ives is a beautiful, vibrant Cornish holiday town. The beaches are amazing with golden sand and clear turquoise blue sea with white topped waves. The lovely harbour town has many quaint old cobbled streets and alley ways to explore with plenty of interest and intrigue. There are numerous art galleries including the famous Tate gallery and the Barbara Hepworth museum. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in St.Ives to sample with really good fresh local food.
Further a field there is St. Michael's Mount, the Minnack Theatre and the Eden Project for day trips out or many nearby beaches and villages to visit.
