"Great modern apartment in ideal town location"

We loved this modern apartment right in the town centre with every amenity on had and just a short stroll to the sea front. No parking on site but there are local car parks around the town which we did not find a problem with

Thank you for you review, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.

"Best location in best seaside village/town"

St Ives is fantastic and the bank is right in the centre. A perfect bolt hole with everything you need. Beautifully laid out, never written a review but all I can say is anyone staying here will not be disappointed. Good weather helps....
