The property

Set in an enviable position overlooking Porthminster Beach, at Peninsula Apartments, in St Ives, this two-bedroom, first floor, holiday home, enjoys un-interrupted panoramic sea views from most rooms and seaward facing balcony, the town centre shops, pretty harbour, beaches and St Ives scenic railway are all just a short walk away.

Sleeping four, plus an infant, its an ideal romantic retreat for a couple or a family holiday to St Ives.

As soon as you enter the apartment you can see by the solid walnut flooring and intercom Entryphone, quality runs throughout. The aptly named Waters Edge could not be any closer to the sea or stunning beach below, large floor to ceiling windows and double sliding doors, which lead out to a seaward facing balcony, frame this picture post card scene and allow sea views to flow throughout the open plan living area, so whether you are cooking, dining, or relaxing you can enjoy this wonderful Cornish vista, cosy up in either the three seater sofa or matching armchair and enjoy the entertainment package on the 42″ television including Sky original or gaming on the XBox 360, or slide open the balcony doors, breathe in the sea air, pour a glass of wine and step out onto the large private decked area with stunning views of St Ives Bay, Porthminster Beach and out to Godrevy Lighthouse.

The kitchen and dining area are within the open plan living space, perfect for entertaining and benefiting from the sea views, a stylish circular glass and chrome table with four leather dining chairs provide a fabulous setting to dine in, alternatively the balcony offers an alfresco option with an ocean backdrop, the contemporary kitchen, with white high gloss units teamed with black granite work tops and splash backs, is well-appointed with everything needed for your holiday, a utility cupboard in the hallway houses a washer/dryer. There is a choice of two comfortable bedrooms, the master king sized room benefits from a private en-suite with a bath and shower-over and floor to ceiling sliding doors with stunning sea views, which open onto the balcony, so you can enjoy breakfast watching the ocean, the second twin bedroom is conveniently located next to the family bathroom at the rear, all rooms are well presented with sumptuously dressed memory foam mattresses and offer ample storage space.

The family bathroom with bath and shower over, is next to bedroom two and offers a fantastic space to escape for a long relaxing soak after a busy beach day.

Your private balcony, accessed from the lounge and master bedroom, gives you a bird’s eye view of the glorious golden sands of Porthminster Beach, take a seat at the wooden table with four chairs and a wooden bench with cushions, and dine alfresco or enjoy pre-dinner drinks as the sun sets over the ocean, heaven.

If you prefer to dine out then St Ives is blessed with a variety of restaurants and cafes, many with sea or harbour views and offering fresh sea food landed daily on its working harbour, if you don’t want to walk far, the Michelin Plate rated restaurant, Porthminster Beach Café, is set right on the beach below, the harbour is just a short walk too which leads to pretty cobbled streets, dotted with boutique shops and art galleries, after browsing catch an exhibition at the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, to see how the town has inspired many famous artists. If you love walking then you’ll enjoy venturing towards Zenor or Hayle via the nearby South West Coast Path, full of wild flora and fauna its wonderful for spotting native and migrating birds and as it runs along the cliffs you may even spot seals or dolphins, this is a great way to reach Carbis Bay Beach, although the scenic railway does stop here too, this exhilarating journey runs beside the beaches too, the secluded bay has been awarded a blue flag for its azure waters, which lap its golden shores.

If you love gardens Cornwall will delight you, from Trebah, a sub-tropical paradise with a stunning coastal backdrop, near Falmouth, to the Lost Garden of Heligan, lost to the brambles of time since the outbreak of WW1, and discovered by chance, to the tropical rainforest with its exciting canopy walkway above the trees at the Eden Project, both near St Austell, are exciting to explore and discover for a fun, green and educational day out, for a little romance a visit to the Minack Theatre near, Land’s End to see a show is hard to beat, this open-air theatre has one of the most dramatic ocean backdrops, as its set on the edge of a Cornish cliff, or the kids will love the rides at Flambards in Helston, or Camel Creek Adventure Park, near Wadebridge or feeding the animals at Paradise Park near Hayle.

This beachfront apartment maximises its setting and location giving you the ultimate in Cornish coastal living, and stunning sea views you’ll remember for years to come.
