Harbour View Apartment, St. Ives

Stylish penthouse holiday apartment with stunning sea views over Porthminster Beach

Welcome to Harbour View

Harbour View is a smart modern, 2 bed / 2 bathroom apartment with a well equipped and stylish interior. It has stunning sea and coastal views from the two sets of French doors and from the balcony. It has a dedicated parking space immediately in front of the building. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk with the the shops and restaurants of St Ives town centre only a few more minutes away.

Primrose Court is a lovely Edwardian property originally built to meet the new tourist demand which began with the introduction of the railway. It is in the delightfully named Primrose Valley which runs down the St Ives hillside, ending at Porthminster Beach.

The Location

The award-winning Porthminster Beach, with its famous ‘gastro’ beach cafe, is a very short stroll of perhaps 250m. Tennis courts opposite the house are open to the public from Mon-Fri.

St Ives’ tiny railway station is a few minutes walk making it ideal for those who don’t want to bring their car. But for those that do, the flat has a dedicated car parking space – essential in St Ives – right outside.

The bus station is also just a short walk and offers a range of local and further afield attractions including Lands End, the Eden Project etc.

The Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide ‘Recommended 2014’ – noted Porthminster’s ‘excellent water quality’.

‘This crescent of golden sand, framed by a glittering bay, has glorious views across to Godrevy Lighthouse, inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s famous novel ‘To the Lighthouse’. With the benefit of the mildest climate in the UK along with waving palm trees and translucent waters, there is a definite tropical feel to the place’.

It’s perfectly positioned for a great beach holiday. Within minutes you’ll be applying the sun cream! The large balcony provides a great space to watch the fishing boats plying in and out of the harbour and to watch activity on the beach. And what better place to enjoy a glass of wine or Cornish beer than a sunny balcony!

Its a bright and spacious flat, very well equipped with everything you need for the perfect beach holiday. Newly fitted 55″ wall-mounted Samsung HDR Ultra smart TV with Netflix movies. So great nights in too! The car park space outside is very important for any holiday in St Ives.
