About So St Ives

We have loved St Ives ever since holidaying here many years ago. Having previously lived in Birmingham and London we eventually managed to fulfil our dream and make the move to Cornwall.

We now live in St Ives, and absolutely love it!

Alan and Sharon

Why So St Ives chose St Ives

The apartment at Carrack Widden has such a stunning view you can't fail to be impressed and instantly relaxed.

We love St Ives and Porthminster is our favourite beach, so the view over the beach and bay beyond is very special to us.

The apartment was in need of updating but is now well and truly worthy of its superb location.

What makes this apartment unique

Central St Ives with car parking!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a brilliant holiday. David A

Enjoyable stay. Great location. Lovely apartment - clean and tidy

  • 4 of 5

Great location and stunning views made even better by the sunshine. Apartment was well decorated and clean. Access good. Comfy bed and powerful shower. Would recommend it to others. Only downside was noisy neighbours upstairs with a young child who ran around early morning and evening.

Beautiful location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 5 month-old stayed in Blue View for a week in July and had a wonderful time. The apartment was lovely and Alan was accommodating and communicated well.


- The apartment has recently been refurbished to a high standard and had plenty of amenities that made it feel like home (kettle, pots and pans, working stove, laundry facilities etc). It was clean and well-presented on arrival

- The view was absolutely beautiful and looked right over the beach and we could watch the sunrise every morning (easy with a young child)

- Location was fantastic and super convenient to walk to everywhere in St. Ives

- Underground parking. This is actually a big plus given the lack of available parking around St Ives


- Not a big negative but was a little bit tricky to initially check ourselves in as the building has two entrance points. Just have to follow the written instructions closely sent by Alan and you won't have any issues

- There is no air conditioning but we didn't find it a big issue as it was only noticeable on very hot days in the middle of the day - but we were out most of the time so it was generally fine. Once you open the front and back windows you get a very nice breeze through the apartment so it does cool down well in the afternoons

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Blue View David, and thank you for taking the time to write such a great review! You're absolutely right that the garage is necessary as parking spaces are notoriously hard to find in St Ives. Hopefully we will see you back at Blue View again one day. Alan

Great location, great views and great apartment..

  • 4 of 5

Breath-taking views of the bay and an easy walk to actually get onto the beach. Close enough to the town centre for easy access but far enough to be very peaceful. Well maintained apartment and very clean with everything you would really need, the only downside was the lack of any private outside space but with everything so close that never really became a problem. Secure basement parking was great to have (the icing on the cake really) but more so because it limited the distance that the bags had to be carried to just a few yards.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this apartment to other couples.

Perfect Porthminster

  • 4 of 5

Don't be fooled by the exterior, which is a modern block of flats. Inside is a lovely space, beautifully decorated and fitted out. Tasteful and High quality. The View is spectacular of the sea and beach. Mesmerising. Perfect for visiting Porthminster beach and The Beach cafe restaurant. You need fairly good mobility though, steps and hills! But everything (Tate, shops, galleries, restaurants etc) is within reach and there is secure parking for the car, a boon in St Ives.

Really nice property once you gain access

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the first impression was not that great from the outside however once inside the property has the wow factor. Furnishings all of a really good standard and well equipped.

The view across the bay was Mesmerising and the location is just a short walk into St Ives.

We had a great holiday and would book again.
