About Jon and Kathie Butters
My husband and I live in Bristol, UK and regularly visit Cornwall. We like to stay in self catering accommodation for our main family holidays and have set up our apartment to match the high standards that we would expect ourselves.
Jon and Kathie Butters purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Jon and Kathie Butters chose St Ives
St Ives is a super place with lovely beaches, the historic harbour and fantastic restaurants. It is wonderful to wander around the old town exploring the little shops and watching artists at work. For the more active there is surfing on Porthmoer beach, golf courses and the coastal paths. It's also a good base for visiting many of the tourist sites of Cornwall. It has something for every age group at all times of the year.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is very convenient, close to the centre of St Ives (5 minutes walk to Porthminster beach, 5 mins to nearest supermarket and 10 minutes to the harbour and centre of town), yet in a quiet location with it's own large parking space allowing easy access. It has a conservatory open plan to the living room which creates a large, light living space. It has its own entrance opening directly to the outside with space to store beach gear, bikes, kayaks and surfboards. The 2 bathrooms are very convenient for when 4 people are staying. The outside patio area has roof top views to the sea and Godrevy Lighthouse and is a secluded place to eat and drink.

Very comfortable with all amenities
We were very comfortable and warm in this apartment the only downside was the large setter in the lounge was very uncomfortable to sit on as it appeared to be broken in the middle of it, other than that it was
excellent value for money.
Very clean, compact & comfortable apartment within walking distance of the harbour. Very quiet in winter. Good base to stay.
A great holiday home with lots of comforts.
It is a lovely, clean, warm, comfortable and well equipped apartment ideally suited for walking into St Ives town or heading for Porthminster beach and on to Carbis Bay. We spent a very enjoyable 10 nights here and would definitely return
Warm & Light Apartment
Great apartment ideally located within a short distance of St Ives town. The apartment was well heated and fully equipped for all our needs during our short break. A library of games & DVD's for your perusal & interest.
Excellent walking distance to centre of town
Property very clean, tidy & well appointed within easy walk to town. Great to have car parking space. St Ives just delightful with lots to see & do.
A perfect stay!
I must be honest, this property was my 2nd choice when researching online - my first choice became unavailable.. But having now stayed at the property (which was 100% as described) and seen the location in comparison to my other choices .... fate played its part - this was clearly the best place to stay given our requirements!
Facilities were exceptional, the whole property was clean and well maintained.
Can I think of something not quite right with our stay? Erm, there wasn't any hand soap provided in the 2nd bathroom ..... Can you tell I'm clutching at straws?!
St Ive's played its part too - brilliant weather for early June, wonderful beaches, people and places to eat, shop and visit.
Special interest holidays: The wonderful location of St.Ives makes it ideal for surfing holidays. Both St. St.Ives and near by Gwithian have surf schools running courses through out the year. There are also opportunities for sea kayaking and kite surfing from the nearby beaches and on the estuaries along the coast. St.Ives is also well renowned as an artists haven due to the special quality of the sunlight. There are several places in St.Ives that run art courses for all levels of artist. St.Ives is ideal as a base for a walking holiday. The magnificent section of the South West coastal path from St.Ives south to Lands End is directly accessible from St.Ives. Or use it as a base for walking on other sections of the coastal path in Cornwall and inland on the moors. In St.Ives: Coast/Beach: Beautiful Porthminster Beach, a sheltered beach ideal for young families, is 5 minutes walk from the apartment with its turquoise blue water and clean golden sand. Harbour Beach for boat rides and fishing is 5-10 minutes walk and Porthmoer Beach for surf, surf school, long stretches of sand and rock pools is 10 minutes walk. Travel: The apartment is easy to access by road and has a large private parking space next to the apartment building, although a car is not needed for in St. Ives itself. The train station and bus station in St. Ives are both very close to the apartment, 5-10 minutes to walk up hill. Newquay airport is about 1 hour drive away. Further Details: St Ives is a beautiful, vibrant Cornish holiday town. The beaches are amazing with golden sand and clear turquoise blue sea with white topped waves. The lovely harbour town has many quaint old cobbled streets and alley ways to explore with plenty of interest and intrigue. There are numerous art galleries including the famous Tate gallery and the Barbara Hepworth museum. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in St.Ives to sample with really good fresh local food. Further a field there is St. Michael's Mount, the Minnack Theatre and the Eden Project for day trips out or many nearby beaches and villages to visit.
