About 2 Harbour House

If you want to come on holiday and have all of the comforts of a modern and exceptionally well equipped apartment; 2 Harbour House is the place to stay. Two bedrooms which can welcome two couples staying in king size beds or a family where one of the bedrooms can become a twin room, three bathrooms shared between four guests, two en-suite bathrooms for pure self-indulgence, soft and luxury bed linen, TVs in each of the rooms, a light and airy kitchen with cooking tools to entice the most budding of chefs and, to finish off, the living and dining space which could have jumped off the front cover of Coastal Home magazine.

As you drive into St Ives, you will be hit by the extraordinarily beautiful sight of St Ives Bay. The harbour is embraced by two long piers where fisherman will land bountiful catches during the day. Within the emerald green harbour water, you will spot fish glistening in the sun and also our very own resident seal who has become quite a celebrity in his own right. Within the arms of the harbour, boats bob to the ebb and flow of the tide, organised boat trips come and go on a regular basis from giving those on board the wonderful perspective of St Ives from the sea. For the more active, Tassy Swallow (St Ives' female medal surfer) offers Stand-Up Paddle board lessons and hire. For those that want to sit and observe all of the activity in comfort, the harbour and Wharf front is lined with tea rooms offering Cornish cream teas, bistro restaurants and traditional Cornish pubs.

Having said that, all of this can be watched from the privacy and luxurious space of 2 Harbour House. Unadulterated views across the harbour, its beach and beyond along St Ives Bay coastline can be drunk in to your heart's content - morning, noon and night.

As the beach is a few sandy feet from the front door, folding chairs and beach essentials including bucket and spades have been thoughtfully provided and, to remove the hassle of parking in St Ives, an allocated parking space is just a 10 minute walk away.

Almost every aspect of 2 Harbour House was exactly what we were looking for. We tried to read our books but were always distracted by the harbour, boats, people and even the lifeboat launch, with three great windows to sit at and relax. Great kitchen facilities (we cooked fresh fish most evenings), Three bath/shower rooms and even beach chairs. The beds in the twin room were a little small and too near the ground for adults with creaky knees but that was the only issue (a set of pin boning tweezers would also help!). Orange Roofs have been totally amazing. Loads of information before our holiday and great support for a couple of minor items needing fixing. Best company we've ever dealt with. Thanks

We have been visiting St Ives for many years and this is by far the best property we have ever used. Attention to detail, amazing views and brilliant location. Great service from Orange Roofs - perfect, we’ll certainly visit again

We recently spend a week in this wonderful apartment, and what an apartment. The views are stunning it was really nice sitting in the windows watching the world go by. We have been coming to St Ives for the last 18 years and this is one of the best apartments.

We had the most amazing holiday at 2 harbour house. The property itself was exquisite with everything you need to help make the most of your holiday and then there were the views which were out of this world. No need for television at this property as watching the world go by in all weathers was hypnotic. After a long drive the welcome pack was such a lovely touch we were made to feel so welcome. Orange roofs emailed all the instructions prior to us leaving, they were so accommodating. Thank you to the lovely owners who have put so much thought into every last detail in the apartment this has by far been our favourite holiday in the last 5 years.

This is our third year of booking our holiday with Orange Roofs, and we booked our fourth as soon as we returned home. They offer a choice of fantastic high spec, immaculate holiday homes and give superb customer service. Fantastic. Arrive, unpack, and relax. Thanks Sam and Ross and the OR Team.

The accommodation was 5* and so was the location. It looked as if no expense had been spared in furnishing the apartment and everything was to an extremely high standard. There was nothing negative we could say and wish we didn't have to leave. Another nice to have was the facility to record programs on the TV (we went in March so there was a wee bit of TV watching post restaurant). We could not imagine staying anywhere else in St Ives if we go back so this has set the standard very high indeed. Thank you so much for letting us rent the apartment - especially as it was really short notice and for the scones, cream, jam and wine to welcome us.

This is the sixth cottage we’ve stayed at as a family in St.Ives and can easily say it is pretty much flawless, and without question the best we’ve stayed at here in St.Ives. Amazing views coupled with a beautiful apartment, fully equipped with everything you need on holiday. Can’t wait to come back at some point.

We spent 8 days in this lovely property, which was even better than we had expected! The weather for our first couple of days was very wet and windy, but it was always such a pleasure to return to Harbour House and sit in one of the 3 window seats with a hot drink and just watch the world go by! We would definitely return and would highly recommend this property.

We stayed at 2 Harbour House in October, our sixth stay in St Ives in as many years. We've stayed in five different apartments in different locations and I would say this apartment is my favourite. The views are just fantastic and the living area in the apartment makes perfect use of the bay windows The window seat (which is newer than the photos on the website) was a favourite for people-watching on the wharf. In fact our kids barely watched tv the whole week as the view out of the window was so interesting! The kids also loved to draw and colour sitting at the dining table in the bay window and for me a cup of tea sitting in the kitchen bay was perfect at any time of day. The living area manages to feel cosy and modern at the same time. Usually I am glad to get back to my home comforts at the end of a week away but now I am missing the apartment - it was so well designed and with everything you need. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment so have no outlook and only small windows in the master bedroom - which was fine for quiet, dark sleeping areas. The beds are very comfortable. The only downside is the walk to the parking space, but we very much appreciated having the parking space in the first place as it would be impossible to combine this location & view with parking on site - that is the nature of St Ives. We'll definitely be back to St Ives in the future and when we do this apartment will be at the top of our list!

The views are fantastic - you can sit at the bay windows and watch the harbour all day! The apartment was beautifully appointed with everything you need - except pasta bowls - which would be a good addition. Any queries were promptly and efficiently dealt with. A great place to stay.

So we were there 9 weeks ago, got back home and couldn’t stop thinking about this amazing apartment, so decided to look up availability and booked it immediately. Just can’t get enough of this place, we had an amazing time once again, weather was fantastic. Thank you once again for making our holiday so memorable, looking to rebook for 2019, so far away , let’s see if I can last that long .

This has got to be the finest location on the harbour front. Amazing views of the tides coming in and out, and the fishing and pleasure boats coming and going. The apartment decor is very well thought out and tasteful. The 3 bay windows are outstanding and perfect for people watching. The interior is very well equipped, and all fine quality too, everything you could possibly need. We had a great time in 2 Harbour House and hope to return soon.

Tre spettacolari grandi finestre su un incantevole contesto, con la magia dell'alta e bassa marea sempre in primo piano. Appartamento molto confortevole sul molo , ben arredato ed equipaggiato. Pulito e centrale. Conserveremo nei nostri ricordi la Cornovaglia, St Ives e questa bellissima casa che ci ha ospitati

We have been visiting St Ives for the past 17 years and have stayed at some lovely apartments but nothing quite like his one . OMG! What an awesome view, the hardest decision we had to make was which window seat to sit at . Thank you for an amazing holiday, definitely will be back next year .

Just returned from a second stay in what must be one of the best 2 bed apartments in St Ives, the location on the Wharf could not be better. The accommodation with 2 bedrooms with on suite bathrooms and a shower room a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting area has everything you could need for your stay. Will definitely be back for a third visit.

We had a wonderful stay at 2 Harbour House. The apartment is so cozy and comfortable, and it is even cuter in person! The kitchen was well equipped for cooking (we only cooked breakfast). There were manuals available so you were able to look up any questions you might have (i.e. how to run a European washing machine) and Orange Roofs was quick to respond to any question we had that was not answered by a manual. There were also maps of the area to use, in order to explore the surrounding country side. We loved sitting in any one of the three bay windows to watch the harbor during high and low tide. We had one day of "rough seas" and that provided some pretty amazing waves crashing into the sea walls. The only thing that you might need that is not provided is paper towels and napkins. And since this is an apartment and not a hotel, you will need to bring your own shampoo and shower gel. The scones that were provided upon our arrival were so yummy! What a great way to start our Cornwall vacation. We had one of the best meals of our 10 day trip at the Cellar Bistro (recommended by Orange Roofs). We would stay here again in a heart beat! It was perfection!

We are frequently visitors to St Ives and have satayed across the town but this place beats all others. The location is great, in the central area but not too close to the noise, great to take an ice cream or pasty back and be safe away from the seagulls! The view is amazing come rain or shine. Well equipped with everything you would need away on holiday. Looking forward to our return visit.

One of the best apartments we’ve ever stayed in. The views are out of this world and the apartment is decked out with everything you need to make it a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. We love St Ives and this apartment is now where we want to stay every time!

My wife and I just spent a week here with our 2 children(12 and 15). What an amazing apartment, we all had a wonderful time. The apartment itself is fitted out to a very high standard and the views over St Ives harbour are fantastic. To have everything on your doorstep is great. There are numerous local restaurants of good quality. The short train ride to Carbis Bay and the coastal path walk back was a very pleasant afternoon outing. The Howard family can all thoroughly recommend 2 Harbour House.

Last week was our fourth visit to St Ives staying with Orange Roofs, our first to Harbour House. All our holidays have been excellent, but this apartment is our favourite so far - wonderful location, stunning views from the 3 sets of panoramic windows, beautiful decor, cosy and well equipped. Having a secure undercover parking space was a real bonus for St Ives. Had lovely meals out at the Alba and Porthmeor Beach Cafe, and visited Tate St Ives when they re-opened after their closure. A great week, in spite of mixed weather!

fter returning to St Ives in various cottages over the last 7 years - this is the best so far! A beautifully decorated and well equipped apartment with stunning views from all three windows overlooking the harbour. The perfect position for a family beach holiday and on the door step to St Ives many great restaurants- Caffe Pasta and Porthmeor Beach Cafe to name but two. Can't wait to return!

We are currently sat at the dining table looking at the amazing views on our last day and wishing we did not have to go home tomorrow.. We are a party of two couples and this lovely apartment has everything we need and at a very high standard. A lot of thought has gone into the decor and we have loved our stay here. Will definitely be back.
