'Zennor' (3 Porthmeor Apartments) is a beautifully finished and cared for apartment 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, it truly oozes everything you need from an almost beachside apartment.
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 harbour beach. This then leads you to the heart of St Ives along the Wharf front to the cobbled continuation of Fore Street.
'Zennor' is just 150 metres from Porthmeor beach which, via steps very close to to the apartment, you walk down directly to the beach passing the Tate Gallery on your right. 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 spaciously pans across one floor. Zennor truly reflects its oceanside surroundings outside; as you enter you walk into the open plan living room and 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!
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 over, wash basin and toilet. 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 has super convenient parking with a private permit parking space just 200m from theapartment front door, located in the Balnoon Car Park. You can pull up a little closer to unload/ load first to save your arms!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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
