About Petra Elkan
I've loved it here for 25 years - I like getting outdoors to walk, cycle or paint. The area draws lots of interesting, friendly people, many of whom I've met through my work in architecture and interior design.
Petra Elkan purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Petra Elkan chose Penzance
West Cornwall is the most southerly and westerly part of the British Isles, surrounded on three sides by wild and beautiful coastline. The maritime climate means it rarely snows or gets too hot in the summer. Lush valleys, crystal clear turquoise sea and white sand beaches, dramatic cliffs and wild heathland. I was first introduced to the building when it was still an exchange, full of clicking relays. My architecture firm converted part of it into what is now the white rooms and the London owners became friends. Now I co-host it with them. They love it for the sheer space, light and the convenience of being right in the centre of town but close the beaches, shops and station. It is secure, with a parking space, and easy to get to for elderly parents.
What makes this Apartment unique
A large, spacious, modern, high-spec, four-bedroom apartment. White-walled, oak-floored, high-ceilinged, picture-windowed, with spectacular south-facing views of Mount's Bay — one of the world's largest natural bays. Bright, light and airy. Sun-blessed from dawn to dusk. Watch the sun rise over St Michael's Mount as you eat breakfast. Watch it set over Penzance's Georgian old town while playing pool or table tennis. Centrally located yet quiet and secluded from the bustle of the town. Accessible for all ages and fitness levels. Whatever the weather outside, days inside are warm, dry and bright. Space and room enough for everyone to both spend time together and enjoy the privacy to do their own thing. Four bedrooms. Three bathrooms. Games room. Separate TV space.

Excellent spacious apartment with great see views
Clean, light and spacious - we loved the flat as it was right in the centre of town and had its own parking space which was really important to us as travelling from afar.
A stylish and central haven
Our family loved this flat - stylish, well-equipped and with beautiful views, it was perfect for a short break, and central for town and the sea front. The games room is great for keeping children entertained for hours, and loads of thought has obviously gone into creating different areas to hang out and relax. It was really appreciated how comfortable the chairs and sofas were, and the light is wonderful, and hours can be passed watching the sea traffic. The flat is in a great spot, above a lovely art gallery and very child-friendly cafe, and neighbours are friendly too! Thanks to Petra who was the perfect host, and provided us with lots of useful local information.
Great place to stay
A well equipped apartment with loads of room and amazing views. Our group of 9 had a fabulous time and would love to visit again. Thank you to Petra too.
Wow!! Views were amazing!!
We booked this apartment to celebrate my mothers 75th birthday with all the family. We were all blown away with the apartment!
The views across to st Michaels mount amazing and it was HUGE!! We had plenty of space and my little boy had hours of fun with the dolls house and little girl with the rocking horse.
The kitchen was well equipped and we all had a fab time in the mornings and evening sitting round the large dining table.
Petra was lovely and made us feel very welcome, amazing holiday and made my mothers 75th a memorable one!!
Thanks for the great review Selina - it was a joy to host you.
We had a fantastic stay, Great Location
The pictures do not do this apartment justice. It is huge and ideal for large families or groups. There was seven of us staying and we felt there was plenty of room for all of us. Each bedroom was spacious, the living area is huge, and the kitchen / larder was well equipped. I loved the games room, despite my rubbish skills at snooker!
The apartment has beautiful sea views and is just a stones throw away from shops and some excellent restaurants. Our host Petra was lovely and gave us lots of tips on what to see while in Penzance, and even went out of her way to suggest places we could go for my mothers 60th birthday. We loved our time exploring Cornwall and cannot wait to go back.
Thanks for the review. It was pleasure to host you.
My friends and I recently stayed at this seaside loft during the bank holiday weekend. We had such a lovely time. Petra was incredibly helpful and the flat was impeccably clean and stocked. While we expected the flat to be large (having seen the photos) we were stunned with how spacious it was. It's location is also very central. We easily got around the Cornwall area using the loft as our home base. I would definitely recommend staying at this flat. In fact, I'm looking forward to booking again soon!
Thanks for the great review, and for leaving everthing immaculate. I'm looking forward to welcoming you back.
