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.

                                                      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.

                                                      Matthew E.

                                                      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.
