Originally part of a Victorian villa-style hotel, designer Alan McVitty has returned The Apartment to its former glory and added a contemporary twist. With custom furniture and hand-picked feature local pieces (including a massive chandelier from the house of a former mining captain), the interior offers the blend of comfort and style you might expect from the designer behind the interiors of the Queen Mary 2. Sleeping four, The Apartment is well suited to couples, a small group of friends or a family of four who want to enjoy uninterrupted sea views and close proximity to Porthminster Beach and its highly commended Porthminster Cafe. The accommodation has room for a travel cot (can be hired) for families with an infant. The Portminster Beach location is well suited to those who love the buzz of St. Ives but prefer to stay in a tranquil location with sweeping views and outside space.More

Well equipped compact apartment. Position is a perfect combination of view, parking, and beach access at the quieter end of the resort, within easy distance of everything that St Ives offers. Communication with the owner was exceptional.

We nearly forgot the mild sub-tropical climate, warmed year round by the Gulf Stream! Life here is cradled around the harbour where boats still land good catches of freshest fish for the local restaurants to nourish you with. Brought ashore on the ancient granite quays, the catch is of the highest quality for your dinner plate or for the tables of some of Britain's finest restaurants. A maze of tiny cobbled streets to wander through, lined by fishe...
