About 2 Harbour House
The St Ives harbour and The Wharf is a view many know and love. 2 Harbour House is a luxury holiday apartment in St Ives located just metres from the water front, offering incomparable sea views and a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by on the harbour. If you have stayed in St Ives before, many of you would have taken the beautiful stroll up and down the harbour front, and may have passed 2 Harbour House without even realising!
Upon entering, you'll be blown away by the apartment's interior, as you very quickly notice no thought has been forgotten when preparing 2 Harbour House for guests, and that's not even mentioning the unbeatable harbour views. The open plan living room, kitchen and dining area span across the length of the front of the apartment, meaning no matter where you perch to relax, you're spoilt by the view. In the living area you have two large comfortable sofas, positioned to allow you to enjoy either the view or the TV. 2 Harbour House is the perfect hub for all seasons as there is now the newest addition of the cosy log-effect stove in the living room; perfect for those autumn and winter getaways.
2 Harbour House also provides you with a modern, highly equipped kitchen. So why not purchase some freshly caught Cornish fish and cook up your own fine dining meal. You'll even find your own fish de-boning tweezers! You also have all essential integrated appliances including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and hob, as well as a washer dryer, meaning you can be completely self-sufficient for your stay. Are you an early riser looking to enjoy a cup of coffee in the window and watch the sunrise? 2 Harbour House has you covered with Tassimo Coffee Maker.
The modern, luxury and comfortable finish does not end in the communal areas of the apartment as the bedrooms and bathrooms exude all of these qualities. There are two bedrooms, both of which have king sized beds, but one of the bedrooms can become a twin room. Although the view from the living room will be calling your name from the break of dawn, it'll be difficult to draw yourself from the comfort of the beds with soft and luxury bed linen as well as TVs in each of the rooms. There is also the pleasure of having three bathrooms shared between four guests. Two of which are en-suite bathrooms for pure self-indulgence.
Reaching 2 Harbour House simply adds to the joy of your St Ives holiday experience. As you drive into St Ives, you will be hit by the extraordinarily beautiful sight of St Ives Bay. The harbour is embraced by two long piers where fisherman will land bountiful catches during the day. Within the emerald green harbour water, you will spot fish glistening in the sun and also our very own resident seal who has become quite a celebrity in his own right. Within the arms of the harbour, boats bob to the ebb and flow of the tide, organised boat trips come and go on a regular basis from giving those on board the wonderful perspective of St Ives from the sea. For the more active, Tassy Swallow (St Ives' female medal surfer) offers Stand-Up Paddle board lessons and hire. For those that want to sit and observe all of the activity in comfort, the harbour and Wharf front is lined with tea rooms offering Cornish cream teas, bistro restaurants and traditional Cornish pubs.
The closest restaurant to 2 Harbour House is the St Ives Sea Room, offering a romantic intimate setting. It is where the much-loved St Ives Gin came into fruition! The Sea Room offers award winning small plates as well as hand crafted spirits, what better way to spend your evenings? The harbour beach is quite literally just a few sandy feet from the front door so the owners have thoughtfully provided folding chairs and beach essentials, including bucket and spades for the kids and kids at heart!
The entrance to the property is up a flight of external steps, alongside the apartment building on the harbour front, that lead you straight to the front door. To remove the hassle of parking in St Ives, guests of 2 Harbour House can make use of an allocated parking space on Beach Road, a quiet residential cul-de-sac just an 8-minute walk away. The space is 2.66 metres wide and 4 metres long. Please note that whilst cars can overhang the length of the space on one end, all car wheels must be touching the parking area to avoid the risk of being ticketed.

Perfect location with stunning panoramic views of St Ives complimented by the high standard of the flat. Travelled by train and used the very liable local buses which allowed linear walks on the coastal path. Great holiday.

Our second stay here and definitely not our last. Perfect location on the harbour, nowhere too far to wander to. The apartment is wonderful - the views alone make it worthwhile - and equipped with everything needed to make the stay hassle free. Everyone we dealt with from the booking to housekeeper and even a chance encounter with the owner have been very helpful and friendly. A wonderful place!

This is my 3rd stay in a property with Orange Roofs and each
time I've got closer and closer to the sea front and you can't get
any closer than this! You really can't explain just how beautiful
the views from The apartment are until you are stood there crying
happy tears about it!! I loved the apartment. The living areas are
for sure the best space as they have the views, I spent most of my
spare time in the window seat watching the tide coming in and out
and people watching. It was bliss. It was spotlessly clean and a
big bonus having 3 toilets and 3 showers! The 2 showers in cubicles
are better than the one over the bath. The bedrooms were comfy and
very functional. I personally would like some softer lighting in
the bedroom. There were lovely touches like wine and biscuits left
for us, thank you. Without sounding ungrateful I would have liked
some Herbal teas to go with the tea and coffee there, as I drink
neither. Small detail though. I would also like a towelling robe,
if I'd paid high season prices this would have bothered me more.
Some softer cushions, in my opinion, are required on the sofa's..
they are a bit hard and firm but the fleecy blankets were a welcome
touch. Now to orange roofs.. these guys are great! Super helpful
with anything I asked, and Billie is just lovely! As was the
cleaner Nikki.. as I said I've used these 3 times now and feel Very
loyal to staying with them.. brilliant service from start to finish
and they seem very caring and genuine. Thank you. Parking was fab
and easy and about as close as you're going to get that that
central point. Just to also mention for days out we hired ebikes
from The shop up the road. It was an absolutely brilliant day! We
cycled to Pendeen lighthouse with ease! We ate in source kitchen,
caffe pasta, the Thai place .. all fantastic. Overall a brilliant
brilliant stay, and I would 100% recommend and return to harbour
house. I miss it already! Thank you x
Orange Roofs response:
Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are delighted to hear you were overjoyed on arrival at 2 Harbour House. Your feedback is appreciated, the owner likes to provide a beautiful hamper of items to get you started, however we appreciate that depending on diet this may not suit everyone, so this is something they are happy to look at. Soft furnishings can be a personal preference but we were suprised by your comments on the sofa pillows, as three are soft feather filled, with eleven in total of varying softness and with this being self catering accomodation they would prefer not to supply towelling robes. The bedrooms currently have several individual bed side lights as well as the main bedroom light, so brightness should be fully adjustable for comfort. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed yet another stay with us at Orange Roofs and hope to welcome you back again in the future!

From start to finish we had a truly memorable Christmas at harbour house. This apartment has great spaces for relaxing, socialising, eating and sleeping. 2 double spacious bedrooms with ensuites, plus the luxury of a 3rd bathroom. A very well equipped kitchen space with choice of eating at the booth in bay window or in the main kitchen area. We had everything we needed, plus of course how could I forget…the absolutely amazing views…which can be adored from any of the 3 window seats, we watched the sunrise each day and the sunset at night. We were about to book again but sadly other people know about this amazing place so until next time…….

We had such a magical time in 2 Harbour House. We were blessed with fine weather to explore St Ives and the surrounding area. The property and whole booking experience was faultless. Views to die for! Thank you.

This is the second time we have stayed at 2 Harbour house over the festive period. We knew from past experience that the house had everything in it you could want, and the spectacular views from the 3 windows were as magnificent as we had remembered. It truly is very difficult to drag yourself away from the window seats where the ebb and flow of the tide provides an ever-changing scene. We hope to visit St Ives again and this will be our first choice of accomodation. Orange Roofs are a delight to deal with. Thank you Sam, Billie and Torrie for your excellent service.

Third time we have stayed here and never been disappointed. The standard of accommodation is first class and the location second to none. We have always stayed out of season (either March or December) and love wandering around the town and beaches or just staying in. Because of the location and standard of the property we never feel as if we need to be out and about all the time. Spent a lot of the week just relaxing with the view. Thank you once again and we will be back

We have been visiting St Ives for 25 years or more, we have stayed in various accommodation, but this flat beats all others hands down. Everything you need is there, and all of the highest quality, you don't need to have the televisions on, as the views through the bay windows are ever changing, it truly is an amazing property, and can't wait to visit again.

Having visited St Ives for four years this was a property I had always wanted to stay in. In 2021 we celebrated our 25 wedding anniversary and decided to book. It is truly breathtaking when you walk through the entrance door to see the harbour views so close up. Having the choice of three sitting areas to watch the world go by is so unique. The facilities, furnishings, attention to detail are second to none. We had an amazing time and would definitely no hesitate in booking again. The location is so central for everything you need, having the bonus of a parking space and also being able to pull up outside to unload luggage worked so well.

We return to the same property every year and always are well looked after by Orange Roofs. Absolutely outstanding customer service and accommodation always immaculate and perfectly situated for the perfect holiday.

My experience with Orange Roofs was fantastic, they are personable, helpful and go the extra mile to give you a great holiday. We were blown away by 2 Harbour House. It has a fantastic location, and is practical as well as beautiful. I could sit and watch the view all day. The property was exceptionally clean, beautifully furnished and comfortable. Highly recommended.

2 Harbour House has got to be your first choice if you are looking for luxury accommodation, breathtaking views and ideal location. Located on the 1st floor smack bang in the middle of the wharf we were blown away by the views stretching across the bay and with the ease of being just a short stroll to all beaches, shops, bars and restaurants. The property itself was stunning and immaculate in every detail with everything you could need for our weeks stay. We booked this accommodation with Orange Roofs for our 2020 wedding week which was sadly postponed until this year due to the pandemic but Sam and the team have been nothing short of magnificent helping not only us but many of our guests switch our dates to this year. 5 stars all round!

We've stayed here before, and would return again. The apartment is very comfortable and clean. 3 bay window areas, 1 in the kitchen with 2 directors chairs, one where the dining table is, and one with a window seat. Plenty of space for 4. The main bedroom is lovely, with a shower over the bath. The bathroom in the second bedroom is small, but functional. The views of the harbour are stunning. Kitchen well equipped, though you may want to take your own cooking pots / pans if you plan to cook in a lot. When st ives is busy, you do here a fair amount of noise until the restaurants have closed down. That goes hand in hand with being in the hub of the town. We enjoy it, but if you want absolute peace and quiet, this apartment is not for you in high season. Probably not suitable for older people unless they can do stairs / slopes easily.

This is the second time we have stayed in Harbour House and once again we have had a wonderful time. Having a choice of bay windows to sit in to watch the world go by was magical, especially in the crazy days we are in at the moment. It also meant we enjoyed the more extreme weather as we could just sit inside and watch! The apartment is superb, with everything we need to enjoy self catering, and the luxury of almost a bathroom each. Orange Roofs were great, the communication was really good and they were helpful solving the one or two things that cropped up whilst we were there. Our highlight was dinner on the final night at Porthmeor Beach Cafe. The sunset disappeared in to a torrential rainstorm but the food and staff were fantastic.

From the moment I tried to book 2 Harbour House and it looked like the deposit hadn't gone through correctly on a Sunday , and getting a message from Sam to say don't worry , we had the booking , to the app with all the info we needed in one place , I cannot fault Orange Roofs . 2 Harbour House has the most amazing views from a choice of 3 bays to sit in . The apartment had everything we needed for the most wonderful week . Have rebooked for next year !
