The Apartment is in a perfect location close to the centre of St Ives and also a 25 minute walk to Carbis Bay. Great to have a parking space right outside and also a terrace from which to enjoy the lovely views. more

A wonderful location away from the hussle and bussle of town, and yet just a stones throw from porthminster beach. Parking space is a real luxury! The apartment has two bedrooms, both with own bathroom, making this ideal for 2 couples or a family Lovely luxury touches, make this a lovely beachside getaway.
