About 20 Barnaloft
The sea views from this luxury two storey St Ives holiday apartment could quite simply be off the glossy Condé Nast travel magazine! The exotic sea colours, the soft, golden sand of Porthmeor beach, the breath-taking sunsets, and St Nicholas Chapel on the Island as well as the stunning headland to the West are all there to enjoy from your living room or balcony. 20 Barnaloft has been finished to a very high standard with luxury touches throughout the apartment. Suitable as a romantic retreat, two couples sharing a holiday together or a small family, whatever your reason for holidaying in St Ives, you will absolutely love the quality of this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment and, the sheer joy of waking up to the sounds of the sea every day will leave you rejuvenated.
The moment you step through the front door, that’s when you know your holiday has truly started! The draw of the sea view will take you through the kitchen to the sliding doors onto the balcony where you will take that deep, long breath you will have been yearning for. Whether the tide is in or out, the spectacle on your doorstep will keep you rooted to the spot for many a happy hour.
There is a king size bedroom facing the rear of the apartment
and a double bedroom which has a picture window from a mezzanine
level gazing down onto Porthmeor beach. The designers of this
apartment have cleverly fit two Villeroy & Boch shower rooms
for guests; the first is on the ground floor level and a neat,
space saving wash basin and folding doors means an en-suite could
be added to the king size room, so no-one needs to wait for a
shower after a long day on the beach. Each bedroom has a wardrobe,
bedside tables, Smart TV and cooling fans for those hot, summer
days. While the bedrooms have sumptuous carpets to step out of bed
to, the rest of the apartment has Amtico Barrel Oak Cotton flooring
with rugs (which makes it easier to hoover up the sand!).
The Nolte kitchen has AEG appliances to make your holiday as easy as possible; washer dryer, Sensecook pyrolytic oven, combination microwave oven, integrated cooker hood, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer and Gessi designer tap. The Silestone quartz top finishes off the luxury touches of this kitchen and we are sure you will enjoy its space whether you are simply mixing your favourite tipples or making a romantic banquet! There is a round dining table that seats four and is best placed to enjoy the beach and sea views. There is a large Smart TV which is wall mounted with a Bose soundbar where you can Bluetooth your own music also. There are electric Rointe radiators throughout so you can have warmth at a touch of a button. The living room has a sofa and armchair plus there is an additional outdoor sofa for comfy lazing in the sun on the balcony.
20 Barnaloft is in the heart of St Ives and is part of the Barnaloft building which overlooks Porthmeor beach. The apartment is elevated to enjoy the views, yet you almost feel like you can touch the sand. There are two flights of external stairs to reach the apartment and is accessed via a communal walkway. The management company takes huge pride in keeping the Barnaloft area immaculate and is a calm oasis amongst a busy, bustling St Ives. Porthmeor beach is accessed via a private door at Barnaloft so you can dip your toes in and out of the sea and be within moments of your apartment if you forget anything. Parking for this apartment is at St Ives Rugby Club which is a 15 minute walk away or, there is a bus that picks up/ drops off outside Tate St Ives if you don't fancy the walk uphill to your car. There is a convenient area to pull in and load/ unload the car at the start and end of your holiday also.
St Ives harbour is a couple of minutes' walk away as is Fore Street which is where you will find restaurants, gift shops, galleries, ice-cream parlours, fudge shops, clothes shops, an off-license, delis, coffee shops, bakeries and traditional Cornish pubs; something for everyone! St Ives has 5 beaches in all and so you will have a choice of which beach to visit depending on what activity you have planned. Porthmeor beach is best for surfing with St Ives Surf school ready to help hone your surfing skills for the week. Porthminster beach is best for kayaking and SUP boarding as is St Ives harbour. Porthgwidden and Bamaluz beaches are smaller and sheltered. All of them have soft, golden sand which you will just want to sink your toes into. Porthmeor, Porthminster and Porthgwidden all have beach cafes that serve delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinner so be sure to book your table well ahead of your stay!

From the moment we opened the door and saw the view we knew we were going to LOVE this apartment! We were a family of four with two teenage daughters and the apartment was perfect for us. The location is incredible and to be on the beach in literally seconds is amazing. The view from the balcony is like no other and perfect for a glass of wine whilst watching the sunsets and sunrise. The bathrooms are compact but perfectly formed and despite their smaller size the bedrooms offer plenty of storage. The living space is ample big enough for four and offers everything you could possibly need. There is space to drive up to the apartment to unload luggage before you park your car at the rugby club a short 25 min (but very uphill) walk away. There are two flights of stairs to the apartment but it's worth it for the view! We had a fantastic break and would highly recommend this apartment…we hope to be back very soon!

This place lived up to and exceeded all our expectations. We arrived super late and so had resigned ourselves to no dinner and were delighted to find a gorgeous welcome hamper of fresh quality local produce waiting for us. The place was spotless with all the mod cons you'd expect and more! Every detail thought of. It really was like going from home to home with more! It was pitch dark when we arrived so waking up to the gorgeous sea view a stones throw away was just breathtaking. The apartment is so pretty and calming we didn't want to leave even to explore which isn't like us! That said the central location meant that we didn't have to venture to far or for too long before we were back on our balcony enjoying the weather, fresh air and view. For beach lovers you are seconds away! This place is magical. Thank you to the owners for making it so.
