About 6 Sunnyside
We could write a lot about 6 Sunnyside, if you're able to peel your eyes away from the jaw-dropping sea views! Sunny by name, sunny by nature, this beautiful top floor holiday apartment in the most photographed corner of St Ives is perched on the edge of the harbour beach and you quite literally have a bird's eye view of St Ives harbour stretching around the bay to Hayle estuary and the iconic Godrevy Lighthouse.
To access 6 Sunnyside, you have two flights of stairs to climb,
one external and one covered. However, once through the front door,
the apartment spans gloriously across one level. It is a light and
spacious apartment that comfortably accommodates four guests with
two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a sofa bed option for a
fifth person, but this would ideally suit a small adult or child.
The breath-taking sea views, that will stop you in your tracks as
you enter the living room, do not end there; both bedrooms also
give you ocean seascapes of the St Ives harbour. What better way to
wake up in St Ives, than overlooking one of the most photographed
places in the UK? One of the bedrooms is a double room and the
second bedroom has the choice of being a 6ft super-king bed or two
singles, it can be adapted for whichever you need. There are two
bathrooms, one of which has a bath, shower and houses the
washer/dryer. The second bathroom has a shower.
The kitchen again does not disappoint on the views and we think that nothing gives more motivation to whip up a storm that doing so whilst overlooking the St Ives Harbour. If you're lucky you'll even see the fresh fish being landed on the pier! You have everything you'll need whilst cooking at 6 Sunnyside as the kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities for a self-catering holiday. There is also a dishwasher at the property for you which is always a positive after making a wonderful meal!
6 Sunnyside is furnished and finished to offer you and your loved ones an instant and warm welcome with a comfy sofa in the living area (which is a sofa bed and can sleep one extra person) and (back to those views!) two recliner chairs positioned perfectly to take in the ever-changing scene of the busy St Ives harbour beach. The recliner chairs are perfectly positioned for a day of gazing out of the window at the remarkable views and offer such a point of comfort, you may find it difficult to leave them! If you fancy watching a film of your choice on catch up or if you have a Netflix or Amazon account, the 32'' Smart TV means you can do exactly that.
On those crisp cool mornings or scorching hot summer afternoons, one of the most loved assets of 6 Sunnyside is its small balcony area, giving you an even clearer and close-up view of the beautiful harbour below. Whether enjoying a pre-dinner class of wine or watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee, enjoying some time on this balcony is sure to be a fond memory of your holiday.
As 6 Sunnyside is located ideally in a central part of St Ives, you are spoilt for choice with amazing restaurants on your doorstep. One of your closest is The Mermaid Seafood Restaurant, just a short walk away. An old favourite in St Ives, popular amongst visitors and guests, provides a fantastic menu with all sorts of fresh seafood and other goodies along the way. If you're wanting to stay somewhere with a beach simply a few moments from your front door, 6 Sunnyside will not disappoint; St Ives harbour beach is so close, you will still have sand on your feet when you get to the front door!
Fore Street, where all of St Ives' fantastic independent shops
and galleries are located, is just a few minutes' walk away and is
the best spot to go and treat yourself. Both the TATE St Ives and
Barbara Hepworth museum are within walking distance from 6
Sunnyside, so it makes for an excellent base for a week of sun
bathing (weather dependent!) or a weekend of culture.
A perfect place to have your main holiday of the year or a quick spur of the moment getaway - 6 Sunnyside is worth a visit all year round. A real bonus to 6 Sunnyside and therefore the simplicity of planning your St Ives holidays is having your own allocated parking space on a private drive which is a 5-8 minute walk away from the apartment, on Beach Road (0.4 miles). Please note, the parking space is suitable for most cars but if you have a particularly long car, please check with us if it will fit before booking.

Sunny side is a wonderful cottage to stay in. It's got everything you will need including a washer/ dryer combination witch is a bit unusual in a cottage in the UK. The view is unbelievable and location right in the center of St.Ives. It's important that future renters realize there's two sets of steep steps to the door of the cottage and if you are driving also be aware that parking is half mile away.

This is our second stay at 6 Sunnyside in a few months. The views of the harbour are not to be beaten, and the apartment is very comfortable and light. Would highly recommend.

Everything about the apartment was really lovely; great views; well equipped throughout and beautiful aesthetically. The whole process of checking in was simple and so was arranging the free parking slot. We had a fantastic week and will definitely be back!

We couldn't get enough of the perfect harbour view from this flat. It was hard to drag ourselves away from watching the fishing boats, changing light and weather, tide levels, and even the odd seal! The flat was really comfortable, with everything we needed, and in the perfect location. Nicely decorated, although it would be better without all the seaside nick-nacks, which just get in the way. We'd definitely recommend it, in fact we've already booked another stay there.

This flat is very well appointed, there is little that could be improved on. The bed we slept in was extremely comfortable, there is ample storage space, even an extra fridge and a recycling bin! The kitchen is very well designed and the lounge has a very comfy sofa and two stunning mid century style armchairs that point towards the harbour. The light levels are such that the white walls, tasteful understated decor and artefacts make it feel authentically Cornish without being twee. If we could we would rebook year after year, it's worth the money.

The view from 6 Sunnyside has to be the best in St Ives. Having stayed at Seafever we knew this property would be of a similar standard. In terms of improvements we would have liked a bigger washing airer & a few less Knick knacks to enable us to put our things out, however this is being very picky! All in all a great week!

Loved the idyllic setting of 6 Sunnyside with views across the bay and the added enjoyment of watching the boats come and go in the harbour. Ideal location, especially if you want to avoid those steep hills every time you leave the flat. Even though in our 80s we managed the stairs okay. The flat was very well equipped with everything you need for a stay. We would definitely return.

We had a great stay at this property. Wonderful view and very handy for the town. Very good communication from Orange Roofs after our original booking had to be changed through no fault of theirs due to a pandemic related kerfuffle. In particular, everything inside the flat was good quality (linen/crockery/furniture) and was clean. We spent a lot of time in the lounging chairs by the window! Looking forward to returning in the future.

What a beautiful roomy apartment 6 Sunnyside is. Lovely decor , plenty of comfortable seating and having 2 bathrooms was awesome. Orangeroofs is an excellent company with high standards and their regular updates and information can't be faulted. What a good parking space too - a lovely walk along Beach Road with no steep hills (which I really appreciated). We decided we would definitely come back to this ideally situated and beautifully presented apartment.

We stayed at 6 Sunnyside in December 2020. Superbly appointed with magnificent views over the harbour and St Ives with added bonus of a parking space 10-15 minutes walk away. Apartment was well equipped with everything we needed and more. It was spotlessly clean on arrival so a huge shout out to those who do this. The welcome pack of a cream tea, milk, coffee and sugar was most welcome. As soon as you walk into the hallway your eyes are drawn to the view and it was perfect to sit in the window watching the sea even of an evening looking out at the lights reflecting on the water. We were lucky enough to have the whole block to ourselves so was totally peaceful. Billie at Orange Roofs was extremely helpful from start to finish and communication is spot on with the app for property details and access information. I have to say this company certainly gives other local agencies a run for their money and we shall not hesitate in booking this property or indeed with Orange Roofs again.
