The property

Set overlooking Porthminster Beach, at St Eia, in St Ives, this duplex apartment, enjoys stunning views of the pretty harbour and beaches from most rooms, the town centre shops, St Ives scenic railway and beaches all just a short walk.

Sleeping six, plus an infant, it’s ideal for a group or family looking to gather for an exciting escape to St Ives.

The picture postcard view of St Ives beaches and harbour, through the living area’s floor to ceiling windows and Juliette balcony, flows throughout the open plan living space, making it light and airy, so whether you’re cooking, dining or relaxing you can enjoy doing it to a stunning seaside backdrop, throw open the balcony doors and breathe in the fresh sea air, curl up on one of the two comfy sofas, or comfy chair, comfortably seating six, perfectly positioned to soak up the sea views, alternatively enjoy the entertainment on 43” large television.

The kitchen/diner is positioned within the open plan living space, to benefit from the views of the bay, this is great for socialising with those preparing the meals, an oak dining table with chairs to comfortably seat six, offers a wonderful setting for the whole family or group to dine in, the designer kitchen is a chef’s dream with German Nolte units, top of the range Meile appliances and a AEG Washer/dryer, providing all you need in your home from home.

There is a choice of three comfortable bedrooms, two on the top floor, a master king sized room, with a bed perfectly positioned to maximise the stunning sea, beach and harbour views, through two floor to ceiling glass doors, which open to a Juliette balcony, so you can enjoy the pleasure of waking up to the sound and views of the ocean, a second room themed in a peaceful pink, lit by natural light, through a large bay window, is set as a twin as standard, but can be arranged as a super-king zip and link bed on request, the third king-sized ground floor room, like the twin, enjoys views of the golf club to the rear, all rooms are well presented, with timber heated flooring and sumptuously dressed beds, and offer ample storage space.

The king-sized rooms both benefit from private en-suites, the master with a bath and the ground floor with an enclosed shower, the family bathroom is conveniently situated between the top floor bedrooms, offering the choice of a refreshing rainfall shower or a relaxing bath, an additional cloakroom with a WC is located on the ground floor.

If you enjoy dining out St Ives will delight you, with a variety of cafes and restaurants to try, some like the one set right on Porthmister Beach below, have been awarded a Michelin Plate, all feature menus filled with fresh local produce, St Ives has also inspired artist for years, search its boutiques and galleries for a gift or visit the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, to see how the town has inspired many famous ones. Nothing is more rewarding than enjoying a family walk along Cornwall’s dramatic cliffs, the nearby South West Coast Path, heads towards Zenor or Hayle, it’s also a healthy way to reach Carbis Bay, lapped by azure waters which roll onto its golden shores, similar to St Ives larger beaches, it is lifeguarded at peak times, so a wonderful place to try surfing or paddle boarding, hop on the scenic railway, for a relaxing return journey, it follows a similar route to the coast path, and the views are breath-taking. From Poldark to Doc Cotton and even big screen blockbusters like Fisherman’s Friends, Cornwall’s stunning coastline, historic tin mines and quaint harbours have provided wonderful filming locations, many of which can be visited and enjoyed, the county is full of myths and legends to explore, head to the rugged North Coast to Tintagel Castle where King Arthur was conceived, with the help of Merlin, according to legend, or maybe you prefer the real history of Pendennis Castle, an artillery fort constructed by Henry VIII near Falmouth, for a little romance end the day watching the sun set over the majestic St Michaels Mount, a castle set on its own island, near Penzance, which you can walk out to at low tide, the kids will love the exciting walkway suspended above the canopy of a tropical rain forest, near St Austell, or the thrilling rides at Flambards in Helston, or Camel Creek Adventure Park, near Wadebridge. Staying at the aptly named The Oyster, a fabulous base for the whole family to enjoy, with stunning views of the beaches and harbour, right in the heart of St Ives, you may find you’ve discovered a pearl.
