About Happy Days

Happy Days by name, happier holidays by nature. From this top floor three bedroom apartment, you are really spoilt for beautiful far-reaching views as far as the eye can see. Being on the Porthminster side of St Ives, the views take in Godrevy lighthouse, Hayle Towans and St Ives Bay. The sight of the little coastal train disappearing into a tunnel heading towards Carbis Bay is really quite charming as is the bird’s eye view when the search and rescue helicopter skims the surface of the water while out on manoeuvres, or even watch in awe as the RNLI lifeboat surges out of the harbour and into big seas.

Happy Days has three bedrooms; a king size bed with sea views and spacious en-suite shower room, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom so comfortably sleeps a family of six yet is equally perfect for a couple anytime of the year. With everyone's needs in mind, the apartment is equipped with a PS4 with games, DAB radio and CD player, Sky TV with full movies and Sky Sports, WiFi, board games and books as well as 5 ring gas hob, NEFF electric oven, dishwasher, washer/ dryer, fridge, freezer, coffee maker and of course the all-important hair dryer!

Each of the bathrooms have wall mounted towel heaters and under-floor heating and the family bathroom has the extra touch of Jacuzzi bath luxury. To ensure there are no arguments over what to watch on TV, there are TVs in each room with the twin room and double room having integrated DVD players too. Crisp white linen, luxury comfort mattresses and fluffy cotton towels are all extra touches to be sure of a perfect holiday in St Ives.

The parking for Happy Days is outside the apartment building and can fit most cars (we have parked a VW Amorok in it perfectly well!).

The holiday, from start to finish, was excellent. Can't fault the communication with Orange Roofs, along with the organisation. The apartment was wonderful; it was clean and tidy with everything we needed on arrival. The location was perfect, with only a few minutes walk into town and around ten down to the beach. Our three children loved it all. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't drive again all week! We cannot fault anything at all with this holiday and will be returning again very soon! Highly recommended.

I found Happy Days to be a well laid out and set up property with all the facilities you need. Very light and airy, set over two levels in the roof space of the property. The views from the kitchen, lounge and master bedroom are great for sunrise. The second view from the kitchen is good for sunsets. The view of the bay is a magnet whatever the weather as the light changes so do the colours of the sea and landscape across the bay. Spotting the trains could be a great game though you seldom hear them. Easy access to the property from the back road where you can park, then down a flight and then up two flights of stairs. Views always come with staircases we find! Customer service from the Orange Roofs team was sterling as always! Much appreciated!

We have had a wonderful holiday at Happy Days! The customer care and communication from Orange Roofs has been outstanding. The apartment is well maintained, impeccably clean and well equipped to cater for a family holiday. It is located close to the centre of St Ives. This gave us easy access to the local beaches and amenities which allowed us to experience the atmosphere of a vibrant Cornish coastal town. Thank you Orange Roofs!

We loved our stay at Happy Days. We didn't have the best weather but still appreciated the fabulous views from the many windows (velux & mini balconies). The apartment is very comfortable & well equipped (the knives could do with a sharpen), with everything you could need. It is also spacious & well positioned & the parking is a bonus. Thanks for the early check in (much appreciated as it was drizzly). All in all a fab stay!

Absolutely beautiful modern and spacious apartment with everything you could ask for.There we're 4 adults and even if we had 2 more guests in the extra bedroom it would never have felt cramped or overcrowded.The location and views were amazing over the beach and it's only 5-10 minute walk in to town where everything you need is located.OrangeRoofs communication was also top notch with every aspect covered from tips for things to do and places to relax right up to what day the window cleaner comes!! One of the nicest places I've stayed in.

Happy Days is a lovely spacious 3 bedroom Apt with everything you could ever need. Unique design but very much a home from home with modern interior and enough space for a family without feeling cramped. The views are a big plus and the unique balcony in living room and bedroom give you a great perspective of Porthminster Beach below . We loved the games and books and the PlayStation! Headheight is slightly challenging for tall people but we didn't have too many bumps once you got used to it. The hills of course are a killer but where are they not in Cornwall! Great holiday and would use Orange Roofs again.

Fantastic apartment well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great wi Fi, plenty hot water, parking space and easy to check in and check out. It's all about location for this apartment. The view is outstanding and surroundings are quiet. There were 5 adults staying at Happy Days so plenty of room. Be prepared for uphill walks from town. Can't fault this apartment and would love to return one day. Thank you Happy Days.

A lovely light well furnished/equipped apartment - beautifully prepared even with an option for non bio washed bed linen! Excellent communications from Orange Roofs and ultra clear written information about the place. One slight disadvantage is the shape/dimensions of the parking - which is in fairness correctly set out in the details. We have a Toyota Yaris which fitted in snugly but the cars next to us were both SUVs and were parked to the margins of their spaces so made it tight but workable

Happy days apartment was fantastic and made our holiday so special.Orange Roofs booking was easy and they kept us updated on property and updated protocols regarding covid which was great,the orange roofs app was great too.When we arrived the apartment was spotless,so clean which was reassuring in these uncertain time's.The apartment was so nice and had everything we needed and you don't get many views better than the one this place offers..wow.It was great after being out for the day to come back to the apartment to relax in this lovely place.Happy Days is situated a short walk from beaches and the town and parking out the back is a real bonus.Loved this place and St Ives and will hopefully return next year,thank you.

We stopped at the happy days penthouse apartment for the October half term holiday. This apartment is amazing, the best one we have ever stopped in. The owners have thought of everything a real home from home. The views were amazing loved waking up to them every morning. We had really lousy weather when we stayed and we stopped in a few evenings but there was that much to do in the apartment we were not bored, PS4, sky tv, board games dvds and cds to choose from every one was catered for. I would definitely recommend this apartment and will definitely return.

We had the most wonderful week in Happy Days and we really appreciate the effort it must have taken to make this such a special place. It was even better than the photographs suggested and we could not fault the accommodation at all. We are very fussy and trying to find a holiday home that offers you a home from home - is immaculate throughout, spacious and where attention to detail on everything from the beds and bed linen, sofas, kitchen equipment and luxurious showers, can be hard but we struck lucky with finding Orange Roofs. Great and clear website to use which gives you all the information you want. We would not hesitate in recommending both the property and the website to family and friends. If you are looking for a property with views, the added bonus of parking and an easy walk into gorgeous St Ives, then book Happy Days. We will be back!

This was a golden opportunity to bond with my two new Granddaugthers and that I did do. A wonderful week at HaPpY DaYs thank you. The apartment was perfect for us all to enjoy a 24 hour 7day schedule with stressed adults and sleepless babies in perfect harmony . Morning sunrises across the bay were spectacular and the airy nature of the accommodation made relaxing very pleasant. Many thanks for some wonderful memories. Best wishes Malc

I would definitely recommend " Happy Days",it's the perfect apartment to stay in to explore St. Ives. Immaculately clean throughout ,comfortable beds ,everything you could wish for. Only 10 minutes walk to the beautiful Porthminster beach with white sand and a lovely restaurant. Only 10 minutes walk down to the town with plenty of shops and restaurants.Other beaches and many walks also close by. I was really impressed by the emails and text messages that I received in the week leading up to our holiday,all the information and directions that you could possibly need. PERFECT !!!

We have just returned home from a stay at happy days, st Ives. What can we say... wow! The apartment is spotlessly clean, equiped with everything you need, even games, dvds, books and cds for all to enjoy. When we arrived after a 7hour journey we were welcomed with a hamper of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits etc, nice touch! The views from the apartment are simply amazing! A short walk from a beautiful beach and into the harbour where there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants! We loved our stay and would not hesitate to book again, thankyou orange roofs, you are amazing!

Great apartment well equipped. Very clean light airy and modern. Love the clever balconies.plenty of room for 6 adults. Good location not to far to walk to town lovely beach close by. FYI toaster not working no problem used oven grill. Perfect holiday would definitely book again.

If you’re looking at Happy Days just book it. The apartment is immaculate, well equipped, and located. The views from the living room and master bedroom are fantastic. Even if it rains just sit and listen to the sound as it hits the velux windows, you can even enjoy the sea views from the bed in the master room. Showers were nice and powerful. Plenty of room for all, comfy sofas and media if the weather is bad or after a long day. Although back a bit from the sea front, I would imagine in the busier months that’s quite nice as you would have a retreat. It’s only a five min walk to the beach front or town if you’re in good shape. There are steps to the property and the parking space takes a couple of goes to get used to but perfectly workable. Fantastic communication from Orange Roofs and a lovely welcome set of treats on arrival in the kitchen. A pleasure all round would definitely stay here again and also look at other Orange Roofs properties. Great customer service.

Just spent a very relaxing Easter week at Happy Days, which was everything we'd hoped for,being superbly equipped and very warm even without the heating on! The only thing we missed out on, due to the weather, was that we never got to use the balcony windows, something we aim to put right when we return, as the children have insisted we must! The location could not be any better, a 5 minute walk to both Porthminster beach and the lifeboat station but out of all the hustle and bustle that St Ives is famous for. 10 out of 10 all round

Fabulous apartment that was ideal for a group of 4 friends. We came by train and walked up from the station. It's a good climb uphill with luggage so not suitable for some people. However, the view over the bay is worth it. Sam provided excellent support throughout and we appreciated the little touches-filter coffee, good tea and lovely toiletries. We would definitely return.

Great apartment, everything you could wish for, and more. Wonderful views, very welcoming, do not forget to check out the balcony windows !

The apartment was as described. Absolutely beautiful. Excellent location a few minutes walk from the harbour, shops & cafes. Yes the walk back is up hill but everywhere in St. Ives is up or down hill. We didn't find it a problem and we are both on the wrong side of 50. There is nothing lacking in this apartment and it comes with Sky movies & Sports which is a bonus when relaxing with a glass of your favourite tipple. Within 3 days of arrival we had re-booked for September & we can't wait. Happy days are coming.

2nd visit this year to Happy Days and they were happy days indeed. A fabulous apartment with everything you need for a luxurious break. Sometimes when you return to a place you have previously stayed it can be a disappointment but not here. We were lucky with the weather mostly but when it did rain we were able to relax in total comfort. I will even admit to getting an Indian take away delivered from the Rajpoot washed down with a nice cold beer. Brilliant. Happy Days is well worth a visit.
