If you want to be within 100m of Porthmeor or Porthgwidden beach, then this top floor two-bedroom apartment of the extensively renovated Rockcliff Court building comes with parking, and is a perfect base to spend either a short break or your main holiday in St Ives. St Ives harbour is just 300m away and so a couple of minutes’ walk from the apartment. Once on the harbour you will find its lovely sandy beach, water sports, boat hire and boat trips, shops leading off on Fore Street, alfresco dining, bars (a mix of wine, cocktail and traditional Cornish pubs) as well as a selection of small galleries and tea shops. If you would like to visit the Porthmeor Art School or The Tate Gallery, it is a short few minutes’ walk along Back Road West or maybe stroll along Porthmeor beach to get there taking in the beautiful natural landscape first.
Chapel Watch has a lovely homely feel with quality solid furniture, Seb West artwork, super fluffy towels and comfortable beds which you simply have to nest down into. The master bedroom has a double bed, built in wardrobes with plenty of storage and hanging space and a TV. Across the hallway is the shower room with large wash basin and shower and then there is the second bedroom which has two single beds. With integrated appliances such as dishwasher, washer/ dryer, fridge/ freezer and cooker the kitchen is neatly laid out to make food preparation simple and quick to clear away. Look through the kitchen window and take in the framed view of the Island and its perfect little Chapel and sea beyond. In the living area, there is a comfortable two seater sofa and two tub chairs which are light enough to be moved around easily to suit plus a large TV with DVD player for those relaxing evenings when staying in is the preferred option. For meals in, there is a small dining table with four stools that neatly sit under the table when not in use.
There is private parking on Beach Road (a 10 minute walk from the apartment) and free WiFi. If you are coming on holiday as two families or sets of friends, Chapel Watch is on the top floor of the Rockcliff Court building and Island Retreat (also on Orange Roofs’ website) is a duplex apartment on the ground and first floor which sleeps 6.
One small very well-behaved and house trained dog (preferably non-shedding) is welcome at Chapel Watch. Please observe the house rules in our booking terms and conditions.
Please note that Chapel Watch is on the top floor of a building. It has a flight of outside steps and then another internal flight before reaching the apartment which is all on one level.
