About Atlantic Blue
Atlantic Blue is dog friendly holiday apartment located a mere 100 metres from the Porthmeor Beach shoreline. You and the beach are separated simply by some stairs and a slipway, so as you may imagine, there are some wonderful sea views from this apartment. Whether you’re relaxing in the kitchen area or enjoying some time outside on your enclosed private terrace, you will have expansive sea views over the scenic Porthmeor beach, as well as some panoramic views of the Tate and Clodgy point. This apartment has a thoughtful interior finish, reflecting its idyllic beachside location, with some unique and stylish feature pieces from Tracy Goldsmith and Jo Downs glassware.
This beautiful beachside apartment is duplex, with one bedroom, so it is perfect for a couples get away. However, it is able to sleep up to four guests as there is the option of a king-sized sofa bed. To access the property, you need to climb four moderate flights of external stairs, but, don’t worry, if you or a member of your party may struggle with mobility, there is a stair lift (please get in touch if you need this). However, for the most, the stairs are manageable and easily climbed, even with luggage. On the first floor of the duplex, you will find the bedroom that can have the bed either as a king size, or two singles. This floor also has the bathroom with a bath, overhead shower, wash basin and WC. The kitchen is fully equipped with integrated appliances, as well as panoramic views of Porthmeor beach (a cooking necessity!). Here you will also find a dining table that can comfortably seat four guests.
There is one flight of internal stairs within the property, these take you to the living room and your enclosed, outdoor, terrace area. The living room has been designed to enhance the natural beauty that you are surrounded by. This is where you will find the sofa that can be made into a king-sized sofa bed, allowing for two additional guests. The patio doors allow for heaps of natural light and on a warm evening, the terrace is the perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy the views and sounds of the beach. The terrace area is enclosed and therefore safe for your dog to be out enjoying the space with you, however there is a picnic bench, if you have nifty climbers be sure to keep a keen eye on them so they don't make it up on to the wall!
Hopefully by now, we have stressed just how close to the beach you are, but just in case… Porthmeor beach is your closest! A dog friendly beach all year round with some seasonal restrictions (check out our Guidebook for when you can and can't walk your dog on Porthmeor, Porthgwidden, St Ives harbour and Porthminster beaches!) Your closest dog friendly beach with no seasonal bans is Bamaluz beach, a short walk away near Smeatons Pier. The size of this beach is dramatically impacted by the tide so be sure to check ahead. If you need a slightly larger beach, Porthkidney is just a 10-minute drive away in Lelant.
During your stay, your closest restaurant is Porthmeor Beach Café, open for the most delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner (with amazing sea views!). You are also a very short walk away from The Mermaid, a much-loved seafood restaurant in St Ives. However, Atlantic Blue is only a stone's throw from the centre of St Ives so within a couple of minutes you will find yourself with a wealth of restaurants and cafes to choose from along the harbour front. Just behind the harbour front, you will find Fore Street, where the majority of St Ives' shops are located, perfect for looking for holiday gifts for those who couldn't join you or a treat for yourself!
If you're able to drag yourself away from the beaches and sampling all of the wonderful food spots in town, visiting some of your closest galleries may be a nice way to enjoy your time in St Ives. The Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum are a very short walk away; however, you will stumble across many hidden gems whilst strolling along Fore Street.
There are many outdoor, seaside and national trust locations for you to enjoy just a short drive from Atlantic Blue or if you're feeling brave you can enjoy the long coastal walk from St Ives to Zennor! However, here's a few of a favourite National Trust location; St Michaels Mount, Godrevy, Porthcurno and Trengwainton Gardens. Your nearest golf course to Atlantic Blue is West Cornwall Golf Club in Lelant.
Atlantic Blue comes with its own allocated parking space, in the underground car park of the apartment complex. The apartment complex and car park was built back in the 70's (when cars were a little smaller) and the parking configurations are as follows:
Height - 1.9m
Width - 1.9m
If you're bringing a second car, your closest long stay car park is the Island Car Park, just a few minutes' walk away.

Having been at Atlantic Blue for many years now - the let continues to deliver. Great place, location and views, with under cover secure parking as well. Great new tv, and comfortable bed. We will be back for many years to come. Roger and Lesley

Very impressed with Atlantic Blue, lovely decor, very well equipped but mainly it has fantastic views across Porthmoer. The balcony is a real sun trap and provides the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We could find nothing to fault, all in all a perfect holiday let.

In spite of some very crazy weather we had a fabulous time at Atlantic Blue. It is an ideal property for couples. We were greated with a lovely welcome card, custom Atlantic Blue chocolate, and a bottle of prosecco. The double bedroom is cosy, but the single beds in a king format were very comfortable as they came with a large topper. There are facilities for an additional bed in the lounge area should there be more than two guests staying. The bathroom is lovely with full Villeroy Boch suite and a great shower. Bedding and towels are also great. The kitchen has everything you are likely to need with plenty of cutlery, glasswear, and kitchen equipment. Parking is tight in the car park area in the lower floor of the building, but with a bit of manoeuvring you can even fit a reasonably large vehicle. That being said, it will not accommodate a roof box due to roof height, unless you have a smaller car and a low-profile roof box. Approx 1.9m clearance near the entrance. Though not indicated in the information provided, there are recycling facilities in the refuse area near the car park entrance. It would a helpful addition to have a recycling bin in the property to help with organising, but certainly not a must. One of the most wonderful things about the property is the location. Nestled on the edge of Porthmeor with views over the beach, the main harbour can be accessed in a matter of a few minutes walk, and it is a short walk to Tate St Ives. There is a great little roof terrace just off the lounge area on the top floor, which has fantastics over Porthmeor and St Ives. Whether sunrise or sunset, it will not disappointment. All-in-all it is a great property and would very much recommend. Highly likely we will be back if it is available.

Overlooking the fabulous Porthmeor Beach, the Atlantic Blue apartment is a perfect bolt hole for enjoying all there is on offer in St Ives. We love the beautiful bathroom and well appointed kitchen and spacious lounge. The bedroom is compact but has ample storage space. We always feel very comfortable when staying in this property and can't wait for our next visit to St Ives.

This was our second stay at Atlantic Blue and was postponed from 2020 due to Covid. The property is in an excellent location with the added bonus of a parking space. The level of cleanliness was good and most things were accommodated for, it is a very cosy property. We go to St Ives at least once a year so will definitely be booking again. Many thanks.

Orange Roofs were excellent in every way always keeping us informed on what was going on which wasn't easy in lockdown with all the constant changes that were going on , I would definitely book through them again. Atlantic Blue was wonderful with sea views & so easy to access the beach , had all you needed & the most comfortable bed , would be very happy to return again soon so thank you all. Ian
