About Atlantic Blue

In light of the COVID-19 virus, we want to reassure you that this St Ives self-catering property is disinfected (hard surfaces and soft furnishings) after each guest stay. Please note that until we can resume normal service, check in time is 5pm and check out is 9am. Atlantic Blue is an oceanside 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 seaside apartment is a 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! Porthgwidden is also just a few moments' walk from your front door. Porthmeor Beach has a dog ban during the peak seasons. This is usually between mid-April until the end of September. The specific dates change annually so be sure to check on the Cornwall council website. Out of season, dogs are welcome on the beach at all times! Your closest dog friendly beach to Atlantic Blue 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 carpark was built back in the 70's (when cars were a little smaller) Please do contact us when booking to check whether your car will easily fit or may need a little more manoeuvring. If you're brining a second car, your closest long stay car park is the Island Car Park, just a few minutes' walk away.

We had a fabulous time the apartment its so well located just couple of flights of steps and your on one of Stives best beaches, what a view watching surfers from sun up to sun down and amazing sunsets. Parking and dog friendly it ideal, booked again for next year

Can’t complain at all about the service received from Orange Roofs. From our booking till the end we were kept informed throughout the customer journey. Detailed instruction on how to get to the apartment were very helpful. Upon arrival, the apartment was clean, tidy, and very welcoming, there was also a nice bottle of Prosecco for us to enjoy! We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, and with 2 young children and a stones throw away from the beach what more could we ask for? We will definitely be using Orange Roofs again! Thank you to those who made our stay very comfortable!

Our first time in this property and it was everything you said and more from the welcome pack including fizz , local chocolate to the personalized greeting card. But the location now that was something else, on the beach with the most amazing views and sunsets , we spent many hours just sat watching beach life. The apartment was dog friendly so we all enjoyed walks on the island and the harbour (once the tide was out) And finally the service from Orange roofs above and beyond lots of e-mails giving great useful information and even a phone call to confirm and welcome us - we will be booking next year.

Atlantic Blue was such a special find and what a fabulous week we had. The weather was amazing, glorious sunshine every day and with it being a quieter time of year, having the beach virtually to ourselves and our dog still being allowed on all of them made everything perfect. Atlantic Blue was scrupulously clean, warm and bright. On arrival our bottle of Prosecco, vase of daffodils and the gorgeous chocolate was such a lovely way to welcome us. The location could not have been better, ideal for Porthmeor Beach yet only a few minutes walk away from town. We usually stay harbour-side but have found it quite noisy at times, however, waking up naturally to the sound of the waves at high tide definitely helped recharge the batteries. Atlantic Blue had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We loved the artwork, particularly the Tracy Goldsmith painting. The lighting was very tasteful and the amazing shower .... I'm going to miss it!! The views from the balcony, particularly at sunset, just topped everything off. This dog friendly apartment was a little treasure and we will definitely return. Thank you Orange Roofs for your smooth organisation throughout, you can really tell that you care about your customers.

This being our second stay at Atlantic Blue, and our third already booked - The Property, it’s location, along with the hands-on service and support from the Orange Roofs team..... enables all elements of our holidays to blend perfectly. This is a fantastic property, perfectly located for a beach holiday whilst remaining close to all other amenities. It even has secure undercover parking. The view across the beach, town, and headland can be enjoyed from the cooking/dining area, and longe area with patio...... the surf, horizon, sky, (orange roofs!) coast line, setting sun, and emerging stars.... it’s hards to leave, it’s too long before you return! Thanks Orange Roofs - Roger & Lesley

We spent four wonderful weeks in St. Ives and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The "Atlantic Blue" was just perfect . Back at home we already miss the view from the apartment over Porthmeor Beach where we went surfing very often. We would love to come back to St. Ives in the future and would definitely try to book the Atlantic Blue again.

We had a wonderful holiday at Atlantic Blue. The apartment was immaculately clean and well presented on arrival with everything thought through and ready for us. The bathroom and kitchen are both modern and well equipped and the apartment has what can only be described as magnificent views over Porthmeor Beach from the kitchen and top floor roof terrace. The main bedroom is very comfortable with super linen etc and there is also a good quality sofa bed in the upstairs sitting room. An added bonus was having our own dedicated car park space in the private and secure basement garage. The apartment is very well located and once we parked our car we had no further need for it with everything being within easy walking distance. Highly recommended and we plan to return.

Atlantic Blue is situated on the top floor of the St Nicholas complex. Steps up are not steep and are on several levels so that access is not difficult. The apartment itself has been modernised and has a fantastic bathroom with heated towel rail and sound system. The bedroom is a bit on the small side but there is a magnificently comfortable super king size bed to compensate. It would be absolutely brilliant if there was a washing machine / tumble dryer actually in the apartment, rather than coin fed machines available on the bottom floor. The sofa bed is sturdy with an excellent mattress which makes it suitable for adults (not just children). Views over the sea from the kitchen windows and the upstairs balcony are magnificent. Having an allocated car space in the safe and secure underground parking is a real bonus. Access to living accommodation from the garage is not difficult. Within easy walking distance of beaches, shops and restaurants. I would happily recommend this lovely apartment. We felt very relaxed and had a wonderful holiday week in Atlantic Blue.

This is a lovely, comfortable flat in an amazing location with stunning views over Porthmeor. But it was not clean when we arrived. The previous occupant had a dog and there was lots of pet hair covering the furniture, bedding and floors. The kitchen table and worktops also hadn't been properly cleaned; there were lots of crumbs and a taxi receipt. Although Orange Roofs got a cleaner to come back very quickly to re-clean, there needs to be a much more rigorous quality control before guests arrive. ORANGE ROOFS MANAGEMENT COMMENT: We are very sorry that you found the apartment in such a state, this has not happened before and we were as disappointed as you in the housekeeping standards. We outsource housekeeping to Sandy Toes and part of their service level agreement to Orange Roofs is the head housekeeper and business owner personally checks all of her cleans and have have trusted in good faith her standards of cleaning remain consistently high. When you reported the next day how bad the apartment was, she assured us that had done a check. A member of Orange Roofs had visited the apartment the same day to do the condition check (which is not to check housekeeping but to check the condition of the apartment and visually record this) and had considered the clean incomplete but was assured that a check would be taking place. We are very disappointed that this did not happen and that Sandy Toes failed to provide the high standards we are used to expecting from them. We have received an apology from the business owner and have been assured that it was a one off mistake. Going forward, Orange Roofs will be taking steps to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are maintained week after week throughout the year and will constantly be looking at how to personalise and improve on each guests' experience.

An amazing place as usual! The apartment is always spotless and brings much joy to us every time we visit St.Ives. You couldn’t possibly get a better view from an apartment. We always feel we have a warm welcome and we will definitely be booking up again. This was the second time we stayed in Atlantic Blue and never fails to impress.

The holiday was really good, and I must admit that this was the best holiday apartment we have ever stayed in, both in terms of the location as well as the apartment itself.

We loved St Ives, and loved staying in Atlantic Blue; relaxing place, beautiful views, the sea so close by and the lovely decor and artwork. The welcome of fizz, chocolate, flowers and chilled milk were a lovely! Two tiny things... We followed the directions to the flat easily, but were very unsure once we got to the harbour and saw signs saying restricted access, as newcomers we did not realise that is the only way onto the island. Maybe in the directions you provide you could just mention that it is ok to drive that way!! Also,we only found the very useful Norway Stores just around the corner a few days into the holiday, and wondered iif a note about that might be useful in the holiday folder, it saved us a lot of walking into town for milk, bread etc, and would have been really good to know about it when we arrived! ( and good to support local independent shops, as we like to do !) Thanks so much, our booking and holiday through Orange Roofs has been a really lovely experience, and we look forward to returning!

A modern, clean and stylish apartment set in an ideal location with a stunning view from the upper deck. Having stayed in St. Ives for many many years Atlantic View is definitely 'up there' when it comes to value for money. The harbour is literally a five minute walk and Porthmeor Beach is less. Added parking below the apartments was a bonus too.

Had an absolutely fabulous stay in Atlantic Blue! Its a wonderful apartment, so stylishly and thoughtfully designed and the views are superb! So close to the beach with stunning sunsets....I have stayed in St Ives many times and this place is up there with the very best places to stay! The thoughtful arrival touches and music piped through all rooms even the bathroom were those extra little things that make a holiday place even better. Thankyou so much to Sam and the team for being so helpful and informative. We would love to return!

Beautiful apartment, Had a lovely stay here & all very well organised, the lovely décor & artwork makes it feel very special, loved the lighting & sonos system, little touches just make it a 5* apartment. The view & location amazing, the chocolate, fizz & milk on arrival also a lovely gesture' would highly recommend.

Fantastic location. Clean, modern with great features. The views can be enjoyed easily from each floor. Well equipped and very comfortable - a home from home, we are looking forward to return. Having visited St Ives once or twice a year for over 10 years - Atlantic Blue greated a very relaxing environment.
