'Zennor' (3 Porthmeor Apartments) is a beautifully finished and cared-for self-catering apartment in St Ives which gives a warm and generous welcome. Every effort and thought has gone into making sure you have everything to make it a special break away whether it's a short break as a couple during the quieter months or your annual family summer holiday.
Being so close to Porthmeor beach means you are also moments from the Island and its chapel keeping guard of the headland between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden. Keeping the sea on your left, if you walk past Bamaluz beach you will soon get to Smeaton's Pier and the water's edge of the St Ives Harbour beach. This then leads you to the heart of St Ives along the Wharf front to the cobbled continuation of Fore Street. This wonderful holiday apartment is just 150 metres from Porthmeor beach which, via a footpath and steps opposite the apartment, means the access to the beach and the Tate Gallery are directly accessed easily. Please note, to walk back to the apartment from the beach or centre of the town, you are required to walk uphill. To enter the apartment, you just have a couple of steps to walk up and you will reach the front door. For those who benefit from having no interior stairs to climb, Zennor is the perfect space for you as the property spans one floor. Zennor reflects in its interior colour scheme the oceanside surroundings outside. As you enter you walk into the open-plan living room, be sure to take a look out the window to catch a glimpse of the sea that is just a few minutes walk from your front door!
The living room boasts a large and comfortable corner sofa as well as another sofa so there is ample room for four guests to lounge around whilst planning the day's adventures, or curling up to watch an evening film. There is a Smart TV in the living room so you won't miss out on any of your Netflix favourites! The living room has two patio doors that let in a great amount of natural light and, another plus, they open up onto your very own small private balcony area which looks over to the rear of Tate St Ives gallery. The open-plan living area has a dining table that can seat up to four guests and a fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has an integrated Blomberg 70:30 fridge and freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and electric oven with five gas hobs. If you are a coffee lover then you really will love the Nespresso coffee machine! Zennor is provided with chef-standard knives and cooking equipment so if you don't fancy eating out all of the time, and one of you loves to cook while the other watches, this self-catering apartment has it all to hand for you to cook up a Cornish feast!
Off the living area/ hallway, you have two bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom. One of the bedrooms is a twin and has an en-suite shower, wash basin and toilet and the other is a king-size bedroom. The Jack and Jill element is a door leading from the king-size bedroom creating an en-suite and then a door enters the bathroom from the hallway too. This bathroom has a bath with shower, wash basin and WC. You are provided with luxuriously soft bed linen and towels. A hairdryer is also provided for you. For the young ones, there is a high chair and also there is a cupboard just to the side of the apartment where you can help yourself to beach goodies during your holiday.
Your closest restaurant to Zennor is either the Porthmeor Beach Café, a hub of excellent food, drinks and views or why not pay a visit to the TATE Café? Head to the gallery and take the lift all the way to the very top floor and you'll find some pretty breath-taking landscapes of St Ives. It is a great place for a cream tea or a light afternoon lunch.
Zennor offers complimentary parking with a private permit parking space just 200m from the apartment front door, located in the Barnoon Car Park. You can pull up a little closer to unload/ load first to save your arms!
To recap, this boutique self-catering holiday apartment sleeps four people in two bedrooms and has two bathrooms. It has parking for one car using a permit in a designated space on entry to Barnoon car park which is no more than a minute's walk from the apartment. The apartment is 150m from Porthmeor beach via a short but steep hill. Equally, Fore Street and St Ives Harbour with lots of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and galleries are 150m away (also via a short but steep hill!). It is important to note that the photo showing a sea view from the balcony is a side view of the sea off Porthmeor beach and is only seen from the balcony area and not inside the apartment.

What's not to like? Zennor is a comfortable modern
apartment perfectly placed amongst the Sherpa Tenzing defying hills
of St Ives. The property has three sofas for maximum lounging
capacity, a kitchen full of gadgets that go beep and three beds (a
double and two singles.) Its comfortable, warm and pleasant to stay
The only drawback is its view of the car park. Opening the blinds in the morning and making inadvertent eye contact with a builder in a Transit van is way more social interaction I can deal with at that time of the morning

Excellent place to stay. Plenty of room and all the
facilities you need.

Excellent place to stay clean and inviting a plus being the car parking which is always a bonus.

Wow! What a wonderful week we've had in beautiful Cornwall. Zennor apartment exceeded our expectations; we couldn't have asked for more- just like a home from home! It is very spacious- perfect for myself, wife and two teenage children. The property is in a perfect location; in walking distance to several beaches and the beautiful streets of St Ives. The apartment was immaculately clean and well appointed with high end utensils, toiletries and overall facilities. After a long drive from Manchester the welcome pack was very much appreciated as was the sizeable allocated parking space. We would definitely recommend Zennor apartment and would love to stay again in the future!

Well equipped and immaculately clean. It felt like we were
staying at a friends home - everything within was good quality from
the bedding to the kitchen items and the welcome pack and the
luxury toiletries. All the Orange Roofs properties look beautiful
but we chose this one because it had a parking space
A short (but very steep!) walk down to the beaches and shops. I didn't mind the walk at all but might not suit someone with mobility issues.
I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at Zennor recently, for a week and our stay was lovely, the view from the apartment is blocked by the Tate but you still get a side view of the sea and it's a no through road so very little foot fall. The apartment is a lovely size and very well equipped, good water pressure and beach equipment is available in the store room. The kitchen is great, dishwasher, washer dryer, 5 ring hob,oven and microwave, all very well appointed. The apartment is near the top of a hill, so every way back is uphill but the exercise was good for walking off the delicious food and drink that St Ives has to offer. The nearest beach, Porthmeor, was fabulous and we were blessed with fantastic weather. The Orange roofs app was brilliant and very easy to use, we would definitely book through them again when visiting West Cornwall. Thanks!

Just perfect! Everything was to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. The apartment was compact, but ample for what we needed. Office staff were extremely helpful and attentive. Would definitely use Orange Roofs again - thank you!
May 12 2023
Excellent location and very well appointed. We had a wonderful time and everything worked great. Be prepared for hills and narrow streets. We recommend just parking in the lot and carrying your luggage if it is not too big or heavy as driving down the street to the unit and getting out is hard. Pretty much had everything you need in the unit and the area is beautiful.

Amazing location near Porthmeor Beach, town and the
Beautifully decorated, very clean and home from home, loved every minute of our stay, could live there ����
Orange Roofs kept us informed and ensured our stay was plain sailing, highly recommend this agency and will use them again ����

We loved the apartment. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay at Zennor again.

It is rare to find a Company as dedicated to their
customers as Orange Roofs. Their attention to detail in ensuring
that from the moment of booking to the end of your stay is second
to none. Our apartment was not only spotlessly clean but
wonderfully cosy ensuring that our time in St Ives could not have
been more perfect.
Orange Roofs really have set the bar to an exceptional level.
We are even now trying to sort out our diary to get back to you again!!
Thank you all once again.

Our stay at Zennor was wonderful with great accommodation which was exactly as described. Very clean and we'll equipped to ensure there was everything we needed including a parking space as well. Would recommend to visit here and we will be returning in the future.

Beautiful apartment in a lovely location in St Ives. Everything is provided for a great stay and the management company, Orange Roofs, are very helpful and professional. It's our second stay here and it certainly won't be our last!

We've stayed a couple of times now in Zennor. Overall, it's a very well-equipped and comfortable base for a stay in St.Ives. Parking in St.Ives can be a nightmare, so having a guaranteed parking space for the week is massive bonus, and the proximity of the house to the space in the Barnoon Long Stay Car Park makes unpacking and packing really easy. The layout of the house is very clever, creating a surprising spacious interior - kitchen diner, lounge area, double and twin bedrooms (both ensuite). All of the furniture, fittings (including kitchen equipment) is of a very high standard and you really don't need to bring much if anything with you. Even beach towels and equipment are provided. The house was very well prepared on arrival, spotlessly clean with a few local treats provided (enjoyed the saffron loaf with local butter). The Orange Roofs app worked well informing us when the house was ready - 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Can't fault this property, highly recommended. Will stay again definitely.

The apartment is compact but it does have all a small family needs with regards to sleeping, bathing, living room sitting and kitchen facilities. We have stayed here several years in a row and have already booked next year here. With its small outdoor sitting area etc., we do highly recommend this place… you can be catching waves a minute or so from leaving this apartment's front door.

Great location finished to a very high spec.

Zennor apartment is situated in location location.Easily accessible to all the beaches,restaurants and shops in St Ives.There is a parking space in the car park next to the apartment .The decoration in the apartment is top class and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and homely.The communication from Orange roofs was excellent and we were able to get in earlier than the official arrival time which was a bonus.The only problem we had was that we required a linen change as we stayed for 2 weeks and this wasn't mentioned in the apartments book or on Orange roofs app.We should have enquired as the service is available.Orange Roofs are easily contacted and the lady I spoke to was very helpful .We will definitely book through them again and also stay at the apartment again.Excellent all round.

We stayed at Zennor for a week after Christmas and in to 2022. It was perfect for our needs and we got to see in the New Year in St Ives, which we loved. This was the 4th stay in an Orange Roofs property over the years and they have all been of the highest quality with everything you could possibly need. Add in Sam and the team in the office and you have all the ingredients for a restful staycation.

We have a very enjoyable stay at your apartment , everything was quality and very clean and comfortable.There was however a couple of things from my opinion that I would have liked to know before hand .The apartment was at the top of St Ives and for two people in there later years it was a struggle with the hills.Also the dishwasher wasn't working and someone previous had burnt the iron black so we couldn't use that either .Having said, all of that these things can be rectified apart from the hills Overall we had a good holiday thankyou.

Great Porperty, good position. Excellent accommodation, good setting for all the delights St Ives provides.
Oct 11 2021
Lovely apartment, very clean, lots of extras supplied. Great to have parking space 2 minute walk away. 5 minute walk to shops and beach. Orange roof were very good at supplying details before the holiday, make sure you follow their instructions to get to apartment and not the sat nav. Not the best view in the world from the balcony, but in fairness lots of properties don't have outside space, we didn't use it as cold and rainy most of week. But not a deal breaker. Would recommend to anyone who wanted to visit St. Ives.

Zennor 3 property was extremely clean and modern and well spec'd with top quality appliance and items. A welcome pack was also provided on arrival which was a lovely touch and the host has thought of nearly everything that you would need during the stay. Importantly a parking permit was provided which enabled easy parking in the nearby car park which made things a lot easier.....car parking in St Ives is a nightmare. The location of the property is very convenient and is only a 5 to 10min walk to the main street .....the Tate gallery is literally next door. However beware, some of the hills are very steep in St Ives, so it helps a lot if you are fit and able!! We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Zennor apartment and would like to thank the hosts for making us feel at home in their lovely apartment.

Lovely property, clean as a new pin with all your needs catered for. Very comfortable, modern and ideally situated in St Ives, with nearby parking. I cannot think of anything to criticise except that it is at the top of a rather steep hill, this was in no way a problem for us but might be for the elderly, or people with mobility issues. Orange Roofs were extremely professional and pleasant to deal with. I would recommend this property and we plan to return!
Aug 17 2021
We found Zennor is a really well-located and comfortable property for our week's stay in St.Ives. It sits in the Barnoon area just above the Tate St.Ives, so is really convenient to drop down to Porthmeor Beach, or into the town itself. A massive plus is the proximity of a reserved car parking space in Barnoon long stay car park itself. The design of the house is really clever, with a spacious living area and kitchen, plus two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms all fitted into what seems (from the outside) a relatively small property. A small outside terrace with seats is really useful, not least for hanging out wetsuits. The standard of furnishings and fittings in the house is very good, and we didn't miss any key items in the kitchen so it's perfect for travelling light but then self-catering. We originally booked for 2020, and I must comment on how helpful and considerate the booking team were in rearranging our stay for 2021 in the light of Covid. All in all, thoroughly recommended - we had a great week, and we have booked again!
Aug 01 2021
This apartment has a great location above Porthmeor beach and was very cosy. The kitchen has all the amenities we needed and the apartment was great for a family of 4. My only little niggle was that there was quite a lot of unnecessary stuff in the apartment such as a draw full of Xmas baubles, a cupboard full of plastic toddler plates a drawer full of DVDs etc. We take a lot of our stuff away for a 2 week holiday so personally we would have preferred more empty cupboards. Other than that it was a great place and would stay again.
Jun 29 2021
Quality apartment, stocked with quality furnishings and equipment. Located in an excellent position for exploring St Ives, Lots of nice touches everything provided with lots of thought. All this made it a very enjoyable holiday.
Jun 22 2021
We had a pleasant stay at Porthmeor Apt from 12-19/6/21. The apartment was clean, fully furnished and comfortable. It is located within 5 minutes walk to Porthmeor beach and shops. The booking process was simple and all communications from owners were clear and received timely before our arrival date. I would recommend this to friends and will stay here on our next visit.

Zennor is a really lovely property. We've been visiting St Ives for years and have stayed in many many holiday rentals, Zennor is up there with the best. The quality and the space is fantastic (more spacious than it looks on the photos). Zennor is immaculately clean and really well equipped with everything you could need. Another plus is the outside terrace, drenched is afternoon/evening sun it's the perfect place to relax with a drink or/and dry wet suits! Usually staying in downalong area I was a bit nervous about location, actually it's no problem. Everything you need is still only a few minutes walk. Finally, Orange roofs = Amazing!

A truly great property to stay in. So homely with very tasteful furnishings. Exceptional clean, great location and a very enjoyable welcome pack.
May 08 2021
Immaculate, modern, fresh and extremely comfortable. Little touches like the welcome Cornish package was perfectly delicious on arrival. My family enjoyed May Bank holiday here and we could've lazed around if it weren't for the warm spring sunshine beckoning us outside to explore. This beautiful apartment's location is a hop, skip and a jump to the golden sandy beaches, picturesque harbour, shops, restaurants and bars as you stroll through the quaint cobbled streets lined with cottages. Also the perfect location when we ventured beyond the island to explore nearby landmarks Botallack Mine, Land's End, Minack Theatre and St Michael's Mt. Excellent communication from booking to arrival - don't hesitate to book! Highly recommend!!

We just got back from a week at Zennor and couldn't have asked for a better apartment to suit our needs. It was spotless, super comfy beds, very well equipped kitchen and perfect size for a family of four. It's a 4/5 min walk to our (now) favourite beach Porthmeor and the same into town, hugely recommend it and we are hoping to be back as soon as it's available again ;) Orange Roofs were hugely helpful and the APP with all the info on it is brilliant, easy to refer to and follow.

The whole idea of booking this apartment was very last minute following a stressful week of sorting out my mother's broken down car. It was absolutely what we needed to wind down, apart from the hiccup with the parking space which was quickly sorted anyway, we had a cosy week near Porthmeor which is so close you can hear the sea at night! It was efficient use of space , well equipped, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were great too. We really didn't want to leave . The care and communication from orange roofs and St Ives Housekeeping was also really excellent. I've marked this one down as one to remember for anyone visiting me in the future.
Oct 13 2020
Having visited St Ives several times, this visit was our first as a 3! Being able to pull up at the foot door of Zennor to unload was ideal, especially with the amount of luggage we had for our 3 month old. A great stress free start to our holiday. Couldn't fault the apartment, it was like home from home. Well equipped and all high quality appliances and linen. Location was ideal too even with a pushchair. This was our second booking with Orangeroofs and won't hesitate to use them again in the future.
Oct 05 2020
Zennor was the perfect place to stay for our St Ives holiday. Excellent location, luxuriously equipped and very comfortable. We've now stayed twice and would happily return again. There's no better recommendation than that!
Aug 02 2020
Lovely apartment, beautifully equipped. We were very comfortable and the service from Orange Roofs was comprehensive, friendly and efficient. We were visiting family in St Ives and will be back!
Jul 11 2020
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all. We had
the most relaxing week in St Ives at Zennor. Everything was just
perfect; the location of the apartment couldn't have been any
better and having a dedicated parking spot was a godsend. We didn't
know what to expect being the first week back since full lockdown
but I can quite honestly say we were so thankful we had Zennor
The little touches in the apartment truly made it - white company linen, towels and toiletries were luxurious and we appreciated a pint of milk, the washing/dishwasher tablets even to the beautiful flowers!
So please pass on our thanks to the owners and well done to Orange Roofs and JellyBean too. The total experience and service stood out!

We booked very last minute but the process was smooth and access was really easy and well explained by email in advance. The apartment is beautiful in a superb location. The apartment was spotless and beautifully presented and prepared with everything you could possibly need for your self catering holiday in beautiful st ives. The beds are super comfortable and we slept really well. We felt it was fantastic value for our mini family break and loved the little extras provided like milk tea coffee biscuits. We will definitely return thank you
