About Atlantic Blue
Atlantic Blue is located at St Nicholas Court which is an apartment building on the east side of Porthmeor Beach. It is dog-friendly self-catering accommodation and is 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 time outside on the 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. There is one flight of internal stairs within the property, these take you to the living room and your enclosed, outdoor, terrace area with a picnic bench for some alfresco dining. 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. Clever space-saving clothes hanging is available behind the white cupboards in the living room. There is a Smart TV with all the usual Apps for you to log in and enjoy your memberships to Amazon Prime, Netflix or BBC iPlayer. 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 with your own music playing softly through the Sonos speakers throughout the apartment. 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 to the wall!
On the ground floor is the bedroom that can be either a super king (in width only being 6ft wide but 6'3" long) or two single beds. It has a built-in wardrobe for your holiday outfits and a wall-mounted TV. Next door to the bedroom is the bathroom with bath and shower over, WC and wash basin. It comes with mood-lighting if a relaxing soak in the bath is what you are after. You can even connect via Bluetooth to the Sonos sound system at Atlantic Blue and listen to your favourite tunes in the bathroom! The kitchen is also on the ground floor of this lovely St Ives apartment by the sea, and you'll know it as soon as you walk into the room with its huge window framing the beach and the sea views beyond! It has an electric oven and hob, an under-counter fridge with a freezer compartment and a dishwasher.
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 Area Guides 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. This romantic holiday apartment in St Ives 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 sample 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 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! Take a look at our Area Guides online for some inspiration. Our favourites are 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 were built back in the 70's (when cars were a little smaller) and the parking configurations are as follows:
height - 1.9 m, width - 1.9 m, length - 5 m
Atlantic Blue is reached by climbing external stairs within the St Nicholas Court complex, there is a set of steps from the car park and then a further two flights to reach the apartment. There is a shared laundry room where machines take coins to wash and dry your holiday wardrobe and beach towels (please bring your own beach towels!).
If you're bringing a second car, your closest long-stay car park is the Island Car Park, just a few minutes walk away.
To re-cap, Atlantic Blue is a self-catering apartment by the sea in St Ives and is just seconds from Porthmeor Beach. It can sleep four people in one bedroom and on a king-size sofa bed. It accepts a well-behaved dog, has parking on-site and has incredible sea views from the kitchen, living room and the private outdoor terrace. There are 3 sets of external steps to reach the apartment with the St Nicholas Court apartment building on the Island and the east side of Porthmeor Beach.

This was our 3rd stay at Atlantic Blue and it certainly
won't be the last.
The apartment is really comfortable and cosy, it has everything you need, the location is just perfect overlooking Porthmeor beach you can sit and watch the sea come in and out and watch the surfers, see the seals and on occasions see dolphins.
The apartment is ideally located to have a short stroll into the town and enjoy the many bars and restaurants.
Orange roofs as always are very helpful friendly and efficient.
Can't wait till we can return.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Atlantic View No.
26 Apartment. From the time we booked our holiday Orangeroofs
provided a level of service that could not be faulted.
Communication by phone and email was immediate and most
informative. When we arrived at the property we found it to be very
clean and well equipped and its position to the town and Porthmeor
beach was perfect. The views from the apartment were
We hope to book again soon.

My husband and I along with our dog had the most amazing 2 weeks at Atlantic Blue at the beginning of October this was our 3rd visit to this place. The apartment overlooking Porthmeor beach is just stunning, you can be sat eating breakfast at the kichen table looking out to sea with the big picturesque window open listening to the sound of the sea, or having a drink on the balcony watching surfers or seal spotting. The apartment has everything and more you could want. The bed is so comfortable and big, the bathroom is modern and has a big deep bath as well as a powerful shower. Needless to say we are booking for next year and it can't come quick enough.

We were there for nearly one week in september 22 and we had a fantastic time there. Really a great view, really near to the town centre. Everything in the apartment was working perfect, everything was there in the kitchen what we needed. The only criticism is the threat of punishment if you leave the apartment a little bit late on the departure day, especially that the departure time is 10´o clock. Also that we should leave the apartment "nice and tidy", we dont leave an apartment or a hotel room in a mess but we are not responsible for the room cleaning service and also again the threat of punishment. This doesn´t sound very hospitable for me. All in all a fantastic place and also the people at the orange roofs office were very very friendly on the phone.

We loved our stay in Atlantic Blue. What amazing views not only across to the sea and beach but also over the rooftops and beyond. The parking is so convenient and safe and no seagull droppings!! A very kind gift of prosecco, chocolate, milk and flowers were greatly appreciated. The apartment is very well thought out with a beautiful bathroom. We enjoyed using the Sonos which was a lovely bonus. The kitchen had everything we could have wished for- we even treated ourselves to a bread knife just like the one there it was so good! The bed linen and towels were of exceptional quality and I have to say what a comfy bed . Our 17 year son was with us and he LOVED the sofa bed in the living room upstairs. I really enjoyed it up on the balcony- just gazing out with a coffee in my hand and the sun on my face with a perfect breeze- what a treat. I can 100% recommend Atlantic Blue

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.
Apr 26 2021
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
