The apartment has 2 double en-suite bedrooms and directly overlooks the Lifeboat Slipway. Being on the first floor, with a huge bay window, our flat enjoys some of the finest views of St Ives Harbour and the seafront.
Enjoy all the action of the lifeboat being launched as she simulates rescue trials in St Ives bay, or watch the fishing boats deposit their catch of fish at Smeaton’s Pier. In high summer relax with local Cornish Silver Bands and Choirs as they entertain you during the early evening.
St Ives is renowned for the high quality of its beaches and restaurants, many of which are a short walk from the apartment, as well as the main shopping streets.

The Parking space is in a secure covered area reasonably close to the flat - shown on a map within the Photo Gallery. It is of a standard size and Photos in the Gallery show an E-class Mercedes parked in the space. There is a metal stanchion on one side and a wall on the other of the space, so care needs to be taken when parking. The Owners can accept no liability for any damage or theft caused by any reason within the garage.
The entrance to the flat is at the rear on a Service Road, where there are some bins from the local restaurants.
The flat contains a really light and spacious living / dining room with a wide bay window through which visitors can enjoy watching the lifeboat being launched, listen to the bands and choirs performing on the pier, or simply try to spot the seals coming in on the tide following the fishermen home in the hope of a share of their catch. WIFI is available and a 42inch SMART TV on the wall which has NETFLIX installed.
The modern fitted kitchen contains integral ceramic hob, oven, integral fridge, integral washer / drier and integral microwave.
Both Bedrooms are en-suite doubles with showers – Bedroom 1 having a King Size bed.
The shops and restaurants are all in close proximity as are the numerous Art Galleries and Craft Workshops. The Barbara Hepworth Museum is located nearby as is the Tate opened by The Prince of Wales in 1993.
Strolling behind the seafront into a warren of cobbled streets, alleyways and courtyards which formerly housed the fishermen of St Ives you will discover streets with unusual names: Mount Zion, Love Street, Virgin Street, Salubrious Place, Bethesda Hill and, of course, Teetotal Street; all reminiscent of St Ives strong Methodist and Temperance tradition.
All the main beaches of the town are within easy walking distance. Porthmeor is only a five minute walk and particularly popular with the more adventurous who want to surf. Porthminster and Porthgwidden are lovely family beaches and both boast excellent Beach Restaurants and Barbecues.
If, however, you want to feel the sand under your toes but don’t need a walk then the Harbour Beach is just yards away under your living room windows. St Ives is an excellent centre for walking – the coastal pathways to Zennor and Carbis Bay are spectacular but the less energetic might feel equally relaxed taking a gentle stroll along the seafront, watching the sun set over St Ives Bay.
