About Cassandra Rawlings and Richard Tomlinson
Cassandra has a life long love of Cornwall borne out of family holidays growing up and holidays with her own son. Richard fell in love with St Ives and the surrounding area from the moment he was introduced to it. It never fails to take our breath away and after years of visiting we still have a list of things we want to do each time we come down. We feel privileged to be able to own a second home here and have furnished and equipped it to meet our own high standards. Whatever your interests, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Cassandra Rawlings and Richard Tomlinson chose Saint Ives
St Ives is a bustling town with the most amazing beaches and country side on its doorstep. The Belyars is a peaceful location within a short walk of all the bars, restaurants, cafes and amenities you will need for your holiday. You could walk to a different beach every day of your weeks holiday or catch the train to Carbis bay or Lelant within 15 minutes. There are good bus services if you wish to visit other parts of Cornwall although the timetables for public transport are more limited in the quieter months.
What makes this Apartment unique
Perfect location to stay at for special occasions. On New Years Eve St Ives becomes a huge fancy dress party, great fun for all the family either to watch and choose your favourite outfits or why not join in. There is a fireworks display in the harbour at midnight, watch from the Malakoff a great vantage point just a couple of minutes from the apartment

Stay in North 2
Property was a great find, perfect for what we wanted clean, fresh, spacious and well equipped. Beautiful sea views and a sunny terrace for breakfast. Close to the town. We could walk but elderly parents used Ace taxis always under £5 and dropped them where they wanted in town. Overall a wonderful holiday and the apartment added to our enjoyment it was a pleasure to return to every day. Highly recommended.
Excellent luxurious accommodation
This apartment is outstanding and fully furnished with everything you need. Lovely decking with views across to the sea and is only a 10 minute walk into the town. It is very spacious and light throughout and finished to a high standard - the owners even left us a welcome pack on our arrival which was a lovely surprise. It is highly recommendable.

Great property and location
Denise and Patrick from Nottingham.
The property was superb and the location was great too, easy to find, love St Ives. The bus down to the town was only a short walk away.
Would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone else.
Luxury accommodation with a modern flair in artwork, comfortable furniture, sleek and modern kitchen, and the best beds ever! We enjoyed the glimpse of the ocean as the sun rose in the
morning over the garden. The downhill walk to the Town centre and beaches was quick and easy. The uphill return was invigorating and left us with a feeling of healthy accomplisment. Our hosts have thought of everything! The welcome basket with wine and chocolate and all the makings for Cream Tea was amazing! We highly recommend these accommodations and would encourage others to book this dream flat!
