About Helen May

We live in America, but have family in St Ives. We have been coming here for many years and have loved it. So we bought our own property right on the ocean and it never gets old.

Helen May purchased this apartment in 2014

Beautiful, super comfortable, classy sea view apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend at the property and had a fantastic time.

The view as you enter the property blows you away,

We spent so much time sat on the beautiful balcony just watching the beach.

The beds are so comfortable I checked to see which mattresses they use.

2 lovely bathrooms and a kitchen with everything we needed. Even a fab coffee maker.

I joined the spa which is directly iposte the property and had a fab weekend of spa treatments, walks in stives and enjoying the comfort and view of the apartment. We has sky tv and a washing machine and dryer.

Really easy to find the apartment and parking. Very quiet relaxing place. Will be returning again.

Stunning apartment with beautiful sea views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful light, airy and spacious apartment overlooking Porthminster Beach. A short walk into town of St Ives and beaches. Parking space right in front of building which is excellent. Apartment very well equipped with quality furnishings and finish.

Both the owner and housekeeper were extremely helpful with any queries and replied immediately. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again in the future.

Amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 5 days. When we walked into the apartment we both just said 'WOW'.

The apartment is spacious, the decor is stylish/homely, and has all the comforts/facilities you could wish for. Then there is the view, which is just simply outstanding. Overlooking Porthminster beach below, the ocean and bays/beaches into the distance. This would be impossible to tire looking at. We would happily move in permanently.

The owner Helen, and housekeeper Claire were helpful, considerate, and very pleasant to deal with.

When we visit St Ives again, I will have no doubts to book this gorgeous apartment again.

Real luxury holiday apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This flat was such a lovely, comfortable, and clean place to stay. The view overlooking the ocean in the photos does not do it justice – I never wanted to leave! The location was great as it was only a short walk away from the town with a great choice of shops and restaurants. I will stay here again as it was definitely a 5 star vacation rental.
