Step Inside

A perfect penthouse! Arrive to a welcome hallway that leads through into the wow interiors of this very stylish coastal pad. The open plan kitchen, dining and living space creates a relaxing ambiance with sea view backdrop and offers more than enough space for 4 guests to immerse themselves in the 'high life'. A large bespoke curved sofa is perfectly placed to gaze at the sea whatever the weather, cosy up for winter weekends or enjoy the coastal zen in the summer. A large hand painted wooden dining table ensures ample space to dine in style with friends and family. To the rear of the living space, the ship shape kitchen has all you need for holiday life and the beautiful dark wood bar with high stools sets the scene for cocktails and canapes! On the ground floor is the first of the 2 bedrooms, a calming double bedded room with hand crafted bed and deep window sill to sit and enjoy the sea view. Located just next to this bedroom is a beautiful family bathroom with chic contemporary fittings. From the hallway, climb the wooden stairs to the deck of the double master bedroom. With a imaginative nautical theme this room evokes a life at sea with traditional teak locker style storage, feature porthole beside lamps and even a bowsprit wardrobe. Check the sea state from your bed and enjoy the great sense of light and space from your lofty vantage point, a smart ensuite completes the luxury of the master bedroom.

From your Holiday Door

Slide back the double doors to reveal your elevated decked balcony that juts out towards the sea, a dining table and 4 chairs are well placed to capture the day from sunrise to sunset. From the master bedroom, step out onto a private balcony for one of the best views in town. The cosmopolitan vibe of St Ives is moments from your holiday door, wander into the town for supper or lazy amble around some of Cornwall's best galleries and potteries. Boat trips, surfing lessons, art classes, fishing trips and museum experiences can all be experienced or simply take time out on the quay and watch the boats go by. With your car parked nearby, day trips around Cornwall are an easy option. Further up the north Coast the landscape changes to high cliffs and mile long beaches whilst the South coast is jeweled with picture perfect coves and fishing villages.

Gina Steventon

We were very pleased with the property, it was even nicer than it looked in the photographs. The apartment was very light, airy and spacious with fantastic views and was very well equipped and it was really nice to be able to use the facilities of the St.Ives Harbour Hotel for the pool and spa which made the stay even more relaxing.

We had the most amazing Christmas Week at the St Ives Bay Penthouse. The most breathtaking views of Porthminster Beach and St Ives constantly drew us to the balconies and stunning full height windows. This property was a true gem, so tastefully furnished and yet the atmosphere ensured true relaxation to appreciate the beautiful artwork and bespoke furnishings. A most wonderfully relaxed Christmas break.
