About Jane at Beachshacks
My first experience of spectacular St Ives was working summer seasons in my late teens whilst at college. Like many caught the bug and have always loved the town and Cornwall the beautiful county.
Jane at Beachshacks purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Jane at Beachshacks chose Saint Ives
Men an Mor was a chance find, as soon as I walked through the door it was wow and I still hear this every changeover if the door is open people walk by and say wow!! It's all about the view and the incredible light. No surprise that the apartment was a local artists studio. It has exactly the right aspect for a studio, the view is incredible and inspiring. It also defies it's central St Ives location, there are no footpaths or road in front so it feels pretty peaceful. Just the sound of the waves, when the tide is low then some people walking across the sands. When the tide is high the waves lap under the balcony a beautiful sound. Many guests have spotted a friendly seal and cormorants on the rocks.
What makes this Apartment unique
So close to the sea you can hear it lapping below the balcony. Tranquil location with wide seaviews from St Ives harbour to Godrevy lighthouse - yet central for town
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Ideal location and wonderful views.
An ideal location – Immediately next to the Pedn Olva hotel, overlooking the rocks and beach. A short walk into town and about 10-15 minutes to the Tate. Wonderful views.
The apartment is accessed via a walkway above the rocks. The walkway can also serve as a small balcony – just room for two and a small table with a bit of manoeuvring. The kitchen is compact but provides everything you need. There is enough space to eat there if you wish but you would surely rather go up to the living room to the glorious views.
The apartment was clean and well presented. The double bed doesn’t have much space at the sides so it can be a little tricky not to wake your partner if you are coming to bed later. But there are shelves each side of the bed for a clock / glass of water etc. The sleeping area is open to the living room from which the spiral staircase goes down to the kitchen. One person cannot make much noise if the other is sleeping but for us it presented no problem.
The owner left us some food and drink to get us started – a bottle of wine, a pint of milk, scones, biscuits, fudge and Cornish coffee. All very welcome and a nice touch. There was even a vase of roses which still looked fresh at the end of our week.
And we enjoyed gorgeous weather!
If you are happy with the open plan aspect this is the perfect place to stay in St Ives.
Lovely little apartment
Apartment has beautiful views of St Ives with the sea coming right up to the balcony. The apartment itself is very well presented and provides a great base to go out exploring and then come back to views you can sit and relax in the window seat admiring. Jane was really helpful with any queries we had and was extremely prompt in communication.
Week End Bliss😁
Thank you for letting us stay at your fab apartment , we loved everything about it, the views, the sounds of the sea in the mornings, the amazing staircase, can’t wait to come again, thank you for our treats, we didn’t have a pen with us to write in your book, so thought we’d day thank you here instead😁
Absolutely amazing place . Lovely welcome pack, including fresh flowers which was lovely. Very clean and clear instructions to whereabouts everything was.
Location was absolutely wonderful, spent most of the time watching the tide come in, waves crashing beneath you, spectacular.....
Definitely will be back at some point in the future.
The apartment is perfect. Well stocked, lovely little welcome goodie, fresh milk in fridge. As for the location ....... just perfection. The views are stunning with the sea just outside your front door. Right in middle of St Ives exactly where you want to be. A truly magical place!!
Great location, stunning views, comfortable clean apartment.
Had a great holiday, some days just stayed close to or in apartment there was no need to go further afield.
