  • "This is our 2nd visit to this lovely apartment and we absolutely love it."

    We always used to stay in carbis bay but we love being in St Ives and like that you are a little bit out of the town so it’s not to busy. The short walk to the town and the beach is perfect and parking is a real bonus in St Ives. The apartment is well equipped and has everything you need, the bed is super comfy and I love the big bath. The terrace is also great, our little fur baby loves to sit on the terrace and watch the world go by, as do we. My only little niggle (and it’s minor) is the internet, it’s very slow and a bit hit and miss. I’m self employed, so sadly have to still work when I’m on holiday and it proves a little challenging. Plus we couldn’t always watch our Netflix too. We’d love to come for a month in the low season but I don’t think I would manage internet wise. So we’ve booked for 2 weeks in November to see how I get on and then hopefully we can come for a month next year. It’s a real home from home and certainly our happy place. X

    Thank you so much for your lovely feed back and for booking to stay with us again . We are looking into the internet issue and hope it will be a better experience for you next time . Jackie (owner) Property Owner

  • "We found it frustrating as we couldn’t find the property as it wasn’t clearly posted on the building when we arrived, also the toilet was not cleaned properly when we arrived."

    Overall despite the things mentioned the apartment was everything we expected and more , the weather was kind to us despite going in the middle of November and would recommend this property any day of the week . Great view of the beach and plenty of public transport ready available … fantastic ..

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you found finding the apartment tricky. We do apologies the toilet was not cleaned properly upon your arrival, we will be sure to raise this with the housekeeper. We are pleased to hear the apartment was everything you expected and more. We hope you had a wonderful holiday and we hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a perfect stay at ‘The View’ and we had the best week."

    We normally always stay in carbis bay and get the branch line into St Ives, so this is the first time we stayed in St Ives. The location is just perfect, you are a short walk away from the town, which means it’s not as busy near the holiday apartment as the main town but you still only have the same short walk, like you would if you took the train. The apartment was beautiful and so comfortable. Everything was provided that you could think of needing and the bed was super comfy. We have already booked for next year and can’t wait to come back.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us feedback and comments following your stay at 'The View'! We are thrilled to hear you had a perfect stay and will be returning. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon! With Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "The flat is very comfortable and well equipped but the directions to find it need to be updated!"

    The large parking area before the flats are best indicator as Harbour Hotel has been renamed! It does feel uncomfortable even to park to unload due to the £100 parking fine notices. The parking space for flat was welcome but it is NOT 5 mins away and it is a steep climb. The flat is on outskirts of St Ives and the climb from town to flat is significant. The Terrace is lovely but there is a busy road outside the flat and from the photo I expected the beach to be closer. The St Ives Hotel said that there is no spa though this was mentioned in information in flat!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear you found the directions hard to follow, we will review them and update. We are pleased to be able to offer a parking space but appreciate it is a little walk away from the apartment. We are pleased to hear you found the apartment comfortable and well equipped. We are always available during your stay for any queries or help. The Spa passes are for the HarSpa at Harbour Hotel, just opposite the apartment.

    We have looked to book next year but the huge price increase will mean we won’t be booking. We are now thinking ( sad to say), we won’t be visiting St Ives ( we have stayed in St ives for the last 10 years)! The price of accommodation is now far too high .

    Dear Ms. Clewes, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. In regard to the prices, there has been a huge demand for staycations this year and for 2022, which has increased prices in line with other letting agencies throughout the country. Prices also vary in line with the way school holiday weeks fall, and are also subject to annual price reviews.

The property

Above the stunning Porthminster Beach, at Chy an Porth, on the terrace in St Ives, this one-bedroom, ground floor apartment, enjoys sea views from most rooms, only a few sandy steps from the beaches, town centre, harbour and St Ives scenic railway.

Sleeping two, this pet friendly property is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic retreat to St Ives.

Originally this fine granite building was built by Leslie Stephen, father of the acclaimed author Virginia Woolf, now converted into a wonderful holiday apartment with an open plan design allowing its beautiful sea views, from the French doors, which open out to a seaward facing patio, to flow throughout its living area, so whether you’re cooking, dining or relaxing you can soak up its seaside setting, push the doors outwards and breathe in the fresh sea air, step onto the patio and gasps at the panoramic view stretching across St Ives Bay taking in Porthminster beach and Godrevy Lighthouse, or relax on the brown leather sofa in front of the 48″ Samsung smart television with Freeview.

The kitchen/diner is part of the ground floor open plan living space, ideal for socialising with the designated chef, bathed in natural light from the French doors and bay window, there is a table with four comfortable leather dining chairs provided for your comfort, the contemporary kitchen is well-appointed with high gloss white cupboards, with spacious black granite work surfaces and a washer/dryer, offering all you need for your holiday.

The master king sized bedroom enjoys a picture postcard view of Porthminster Beach, through the window, which lets natural light flood this bright tranquil space, there is plenty of storage space too, so you don’t have to pack light. The bathroom is conveniently placed next to the bedroom, enjoy a long soak in the bath with shower over, for washing off all the sand after a busy day on the beach.

The outdoor space includes a large, private, seaward facing, granite terrace, accessed from the living area French doors, a glass topped rattan table with four matching chairs are ideal for dining alfresco, with mesmerising views across the bay to the golden sands of Gwithian as your amazing backdrop. Porthminster Beach, one of St Ives many sandy bays, has a café or restaurant with uninterrupted sea views if you fancy dining out, and offers easy access to the South West Coast Path, which leads to Zenor and all year pet friendly Porthkidney Beach in the other, this wonderful cliffside walk is a great way to spot the local wildlife, seals, dolphins and migrating birds. You can walk to Carbis Bay via the cliffside path or for an exhilarating but relaxing alternative hop on the St Ives scenic railway it runs beside the beaches all the way and the journey is breath-taking, Carbis Bay Beach is a stretch of golden sand which is lapped by azure waters, is lifeguarded at peak times so perfect for swimming, water sports or just strolling romantically along the shore as the sun sets.

St Ives is a beautiful traditional Cornish fishing village, its plethora of restaurants served daily by fishing boats from its working harbour with fresh sea food, browse its pretty cobbled streets searching for gifts or works of art, the largest of its galleries is the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, where one of the towns former, famous, residents are celebrated along with everchanging exhibitions.

For a little romance head towards Penzance where you’ll find a majestic castle set on its own island, St Michaels Mount, or book a show at the Minack Theatre, near Land’s End, its cut out of the edge of a Cornish cliff, both offer memorable backdrops to a night you’ll never forget, or if you fancy adventure take a walk through a lost garden, Heligan, or above the rainforest on the canopy walk way at the Eden Project, both near St Austell, finally search for familiar sights from TV shows filmed in Cornwall like Doc Martin or Poldark. The View offers a stunning location for a romantic Cornish escape and our view is its one you’ll want to enjoy again and again.
