About 2 Harbour House

The St Ives harbour and The Wharf is a view many know and love. 2 Harbour House is a luxury holiday apartment in St Ives located just metres from the water front, offering incomparable sea views and a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by on the harbour. If you have stayed in St Ives before, many of you would have taken the beautiful stroll up and down the harbour front, and may have passed 2 Harbour House without even realising!

The entrance to the property is up a flight of external steps, alongside the apartment building on the harbour front, that lead you straight to the front door.

Upon entering, you'll be blown away by the apartment's interior, as you very quickly notice no thought has been forgotten when preparing 2 Harbour House for guests, and that's not even mentioning the unbeatable harbour views. The open plan living room, kitchen and dining area span across the length of the front of the apartment, meaning no matter where you perch to relax, you're spoilt by the view. In the living area you have two large comfortable sofas, positioned to allow you to enjoy either the view or the TV. 2 Harbour House is the perfect hub for all seasons as there is now the newest addition of the cosy log-effect stove in the living room; perfect for those autumn and winter getaways.

2 Harbour House also provides you with a modern, highly equipped kitchen. So why not purchase some freshly caught Cornish fish and cook up your own fine dining meal. You'll even find your own fish de-boning tweezers! You also have all essential integrated appliances including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and hob, as well as a washer dryer, meaning you can be completely self-sufficient for your stay. Are you an early riser looking to enjoy a cup of coffee in the window and watch the sunrise? 2 Harbour House has you covered with Tassimo Coffee Maker.

The modern, luxury and comfortable finish does not end in the communal areas of the apartment as the bedrooms and bathrooms exude all of these qualities. There are two bedrooms, both of which have king sized beds, but one of the bedrooms can become a twin room. Although the view from the living room will be calling your name from the break of dawn, it'll be difficult to draw yourself from the comfort of the beds with soft and luxury bed linen as well as TVs in each of the rooms. There is also the pleasure of having three bathrooms shared between four guests. Two of which are en-suite bathrooms for pure self-indulgence.

Reaching 2 Harbour House simply adds to the joy of your St Ives holiday experience. 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.

The closest restaurant to 2 Harbour House is the St Ives Sea Room, offering a romantic intimate setting. It is where the much-loved St Ives Gin came into fruition! The Sea Room offers award winning small plates as well as hand crafted spirits, what better way to spend your evenings? The harbour beach is quite literally just a few sandy feet from the front door so the owners have thoughtfully provided folding chairs and beach essentials, including bucket and spades for the kids and kids at heart!

To remove the hassle of parking in St Ives, guests of 2 Harbour House can make use of an allocated parking space on a quiet residential cul-de-sac just an 8-minute walk away. The space is 2.66 metres wide and 4 metres long. Please note that whilst cars can overhang the length of the space on one end, all car wheels must be touching the parking area to avoid the risk of being ticketed.

We have been visiting St Ives for 25 years or more, we have stayed in various accommodation, but this flat beats all others hands down. Everything you need is there, and all of the highest quality, you don't need to have the televisions on, as the views through the bay windows are ever changing, it truly is an amazing property, and can't wait to visit again.

Having visited St Ives for four years this was a property I had always wanted to stay in. In 2021 we celebrated our 25 wedding anniversary and decided to book. It is truly breathtaking when you walk through the entrance door to see the harbour views so close up. Having the choice of three sitting areas to watch the world go by is so unique. The facilities, furnishings, attention to detail are second to none. We had an amazing time and would definitely no hesitate in booking again. The location is so central for everything you need, having the bonus of a parking space and also being able to pull up outside to unload luggage worked so well.

We return to the same property every year and always are well looked after by Orange Roofs. Absolutely outstanding customer service and accommodation always immaculate and perfectly situated for the perfect holiday.

My experience with Orange Roofs was fantastic, they are personable, helpful and go the extra mile to give you a great holiday. We were blown away by 2 Harbour House. It has a fantastic location, and is practical as well as beautiful. I could sit and watch the view all day. The property was exceptionally clean, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Highly recommended.

2 Harbour House has got to be your first choice if you are looking for luxury accommodation, breathtaking views and ideal location. Located on the 1st floor smack bang in the middle of the wharf we were blown away by the views stretching across the bay and with the ease of being just a short stroll to all beaches, shops, bars and restaurants. The property itself was stunning and immaculate in every detail with everything you could need for our weeks stay. We booked this accommodation with Orange Roofs for our 2020 wedding week which was sadly postponed until this year due to the pandemic but Sam and the team have been nothing short of magnificent helping not only us but many of our guests switch our dates to this year. 5 stars all round!

We've stayed here before, and would return again. The apartment is very comfortable and clean. 3 bay window areas, 1 in the kitchen with 2 directors chairs, one where the dining table is, and one with a window seat. Plenty of space for 4. The main bedroom is lovely, with a shower over the bath. The bathroom in the second bedroom is small, but functional. The views of the harbour are stunning. Kitchen well equipped, though you may want to take your own cooking pots / pans if you plan to cook in a lot. When st ives is busy, you do here a fair amount of noise until the restaurants have closed down. That goes hand in hand with being in the hub of the town. We enjoy it, but if you want absolute peace and quiet, this apartment is not for you in high season. Probably not suitable for older people unless they can do stairs / slopes easily.

This is the second time we have stayed in Harbour House and once again we have had a wonderful time. Having a choice of bay windows to sit in to watch the world go by was magical, especially in the crazy days we are in at the moment. It also meant we enjoyed the more extreme weather as we could just sit inside and watch! The apartment is superb, with everything we need to enjoy self catering, and the luxury of almost a bathroom each. Orange Roofs were great, the communication was really good and they were helpful solving the one or two things that cropped up whilst we were there. Our highlight was dinner on the final night at Porthmeor Beach Cafe. The sunset disappeared in to a torrential rainstorm but the food and staff were fantastic.

From the moment I tried to book 2 Harbour House and it looked like the deposit hadn't gone through correctly on a Sunday , and getting a message from Sam to say don't worry , we had the booking , to the app with all the info we needed in one place , I cannot fault Orange Roofs . 2 Harbour House has the most amazing views from a choice of 3 bays to sit in . The apartment had everything we needed for the most wonderful week . Have rebooked for next year !

A lovely spacious and clean property with stunning views, in the best location to appreciate the beauty of St Ives. I never got tired of sitting at the window and looking out at the harbour. Stylish furnishings and everything you could need, the welcome package was a nice touch. We would love to stay again in the future.

Second time staying here and not much more to add with regards to the accommodation, as it’s just excellent all round and the location is superb with stunning views, weather was pretty lousy most of the week but it really doesn’t matter when you’re staying here as it’s so cosy and a great chill out apartment! Thanks again!

Wonderful apartment with absolutely stunning views. You can't help but be blown away with the lounge and kitchen overlooking St Ives harbour. Everything was perfect comfy setters, great seating areas to enjoy the view (sorry to mention the view again but I can't forget it) and when we did the walk to Zennor (Coastal Path) very muddy had my trousers washed and dried before the day was over - they had every mod con you need and didn't need (didn't put the tv's on at all - why would you when you have that view, sorry mentioned it again). We were only staying for three nights but we were having such a great time we stayed for an extra night, thanks Ross (Orange Roofs) for sorting this out quickly and efficiently especially as I left it to the last minute. This is the third break we have had with Orange Roofs and I have found the company professional and very helpful and very good value for money.

We had a truly wonderful stay at Harbour House. The information on the Orange Roofs website impressed us and gave us very high expectations when booking, and we certainly were not disappointed. We absolutely loved it! The location was exceptional, the cleanliness and comfort levels in the house were excellent and we felt that lots of thought had gone into how well the home was equipped, providing all we needed for a memorable stay. The wine, cream tea and flowers were a lovely touch, and made us feel very welcome. If there was any downside to the home, it was that it was too difficult to choose which window seat to sit at! This sometimes made it hard for us to leave the apartment because it was mesmerising watching the ebb and flow of the tide, with the added delight of watching seals in the harbour, and also people watching…especially entertaining when seagulls were pinching their pasties! The car parking space was easy to find, and not too far away. We decided to leave the car parked up for the whole week, which meant we enjoyed walks around and about which made for a very relaxing week. And of course, being in St Ives for New Years Eve was lots of fun. The booking process, and email updates from Orange Roofs were first class, and I would not hesitate in recommending this company to others. When we return to St Ives (and we will), Harbour House is definitely the place we would want to stay.

Thank you Orange Roofs for all the information you sent out prior to our recent holiday in St Ives. No other company I have booked any other property in St Ives with communicated with me as much as you did. So many useful suggestions and very clear information about our chosen apartment and it's situation. We will definitely be booking with you again.

If you love St Ives this is the place to stay. The views out across the harbour are stunning whatever the weather. All the window seats are amazing and you could easily stay there all day watching life unfold below. The apartment delivers everything you need for your holiday and is the best we've stayed in. Orange Roofs are a pleasure to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. We booked for next year while we were on holiday this year. We can't wait to go back!

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.

A very pleasant , comfortable stay, great position to watch stives go by.The view is amazing at any time of day. You will not be disappointed!

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.


Apr 25 2018

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!


Apr 25 2018

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.

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.
