About 2 Harbour House
St Ives Harbour is glorious with its crystal clear water, boats bobbing on their moorings, restaurants, independent shops, coffee bars and galleries lining the road and views across to Porthminster Beach. 2 Harbour House is a luxury holiday apartment in St Ives located just metres from the waterfront, 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 harbourfront, and may have passed 2 Harbour House without even realising!
Upon entering, you'll be blown away by the apartment's interior finish, as you very quickly notice the consideration given to the preparation of 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 spoiled by the view. In the living area, you have two large comfortable sofas, positioned to allow you to enjoy either the view or the Smart TV. This luxury self-catering apartment is the perfect hub for all seasons with a 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! This luxury holiday apartment has all the essential integrated appliances including a dishwasher, an under counter fridge and separate under counter 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 a Tassimo Coffee Maker.
The modern, luxurious and comfortable finish does not end in the communal areas of the apartment as the bedrooms and bathrooms boast all of these qualities. There are two bedrooms, one has a king-sized bed; the other has the option of being made up as a twin room of 2ft 6" beds or pushed together to make a king size bed in width. 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. Both bedrooms have a built-in wardrobe space with a rail plus canvas hanging shelves and extra built-in storage so plenty of holiday wardrobe space. There are three bathrooms at this super St Ives holiday apartment; there is an en-suite shower room with wash basin and WC to the bedroom which can either be a twin or king, and there is an en-suite bathroom in the king-sized bedroom that has a bath with shower over, wash basin and WC and finally, found just off the living area, is another shower room with wash basin and WC.
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 sits between two piers where fishermen 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, and organised boat trips come and go on a regular basis giving those on board the wonderful perspective of St Ives from the sea. For the more active, when the tide is in, it is a safe place to take a little dip or try Stand-Up Paddleboarding on the calm water. For those who 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 was born! 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.
To re-cap, 2 Harbour House is a two-bedroom apartment with three bathrooms and has stupendous sea views. It has an allocated parking space on Beach Road which is an 8-minute walk from the apartment. This luxury self-catering holiday rental in St Ives is located in the heart of this harbour town and is only a matter of moments from St Ives beaches, restaurants, shops, coffee bars and galleries.

We absolutely loved 2 Harbour House. The 3 bay windows are
what made the holiday so special for us. The different seating
areas. The layout / use of space and personal touches made it
The apartment was spotless. It was like home from home with everything you could wish for and more! The bed in the master bedroom was really comfortable.
We were also very grateful for the voucher to use at Norway Stores, a great touch!

Appliances and equipment was all in perfect order, everything
worked as it should. Nothing negative to say all all.

We had a fantastic time at 2 Harbour House. The location is wonderful, perfectly located for exploring all that St. Ives had to offer. Well done on the excellent soundproofing - no gull noises to wake us too early! Bedrooms are located at the rear of the apartment to maximise the gorgeous views to the front. We'd love to return again.

First impressions of this property blew us away! The
apartment is stunning and the views even more so. Modern, well
equipped and pristine. Honestly, we couldn't ask for more, we will
back at 2 Harbour House, it is perfect. Staff at Orange Roofs are
also outstanding, very helpful, answering my many questions in the
run up to our holiday.
If you love St Ives and everything it has to offer then this property ticks every box for a perfect holiday.

As many stars as can be given….all applies to
2 Harbor House. Location, view, comfort and spacious for two
couples. Highly recommend!
Each person that I spoke with concerning the reservation and guiding me to the location were helpful and supportive.!!!!!

A fabulous apartment with possibly the best views of the
harbour in St Ives. Very comfortable, well
appointed and tastefully furnished.
It made up for the disappointing weather. We loved it and will be returning next year.
Feb 22 2023
We had a lovely stay in Harbour House. The property is wonderfully located overlooking the harbour and we enjoyed looking at the beautiful views whilst having our meals. The property is well situated for looking round St Ives and gives you easy access to enjoy all the shops and restaurants around the area. Very comfortable and well equipped property, very clean and well presented. The parking space was nearby and a bonus.

Wow! What an amazing weeks stay we had
a 2 Harbour House. The apartment is simply beautiful, and so well
designed to make the most of the incredible views across the
harbour. We had all weathers during our stay but even on the
gloomiest of days, the spectacular views didn't
The apartment has everything you could want to make your stay a total home from home experience. We can't wait to return. The lovely welcome tray and convenient parking space a short walk away were the icing on the cake. Thank you to the owners and to all at Orange Roofs for a lovely holiday!

A superbly located, well appointed property, affording panoramic views across the entire harbour and beyond - totally recommend a stay. The Orange Roofs team are great to deal with too - book it if you can!
Oct 24 2022
We stayed at this apartment October 22 and had a fabulous week. The apartment has the most fantastic views over the harbour in a great location. When we arrived the apartment was spotless, probably the cleanest we have stayed in at St Ives. It has everything you need with regards to facilities and more. The bedrooms & bathrooms are on the small side but more than adequate. Three big bay windows overlooking the harbour , two of which the windows open fully inwards giving you that outdoor feeling. Great for people watching. We would fully recommend this apartment and will book again.
Oct 08 2022
Amazing property. Very well appointed and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything to make a super holiday home. Easy parking and lovely location.
Sep 26 2022
2 Harbour House is a truly special property to spend a holiday in St Ives. From the spectacular views of the harbour and beyond, to the modern decor and attention to detail, everything was perfect. Having parking was also an added bonus. The booking process was clear and straightforward, with each step clearly described. I would thoroughly recommend this property and Orange Roofs when planning to stay in St Ives and hopefully I will be returning very soon.

Lovely view over harbour, and great window seats. 2 double bedrooms, the second quite small. We have stayed here twice before. The kitchen is not particularly well equipped if you want to cook every day - frying pans are tired. More than before, we noticed the smell of damp in the bedrooms. But overall, it's a lovely place to stay, and we would stay again in the future. Brilliantly located for shops and restaurants, and a parking space is available, which is like gold dust in St Ives.
ORANGE ROOFS COMMENT: The owners of 2 Harbour House were sorry to hear of an issue with the kitchen equipment and asked for more information from the guest. Following your feedback they are replacing a set of non stick frying pans that had become damaged and supplying a set of microwaveable bowls. Seafront properties in St Ives can experience high humidity at times and we ask guests to keep the extractor fans switched on when using the en-suite showers or bath and open a window afterwards. We ask all our guests to report any problems to Orange Roofs as soon as possible during the holiday and we do our best to put them right immediately and maintain the high standards of the apartment during stays. The owners of 2 Harbour House are looking forward to welcoming you back!

2 Harbour House is a very comfortable apartment. Clean and well equipped with amazing views to sit watch the world go by as the tide goes in and out. A perfect location for beaches, shops and restaurants. The use of a parking space just a short walking distance away was a bonus as it took the stress out of navigating the narrow streets of St Ives. The information regarding check in and departure from Orange Roofs, both via emails and the app was exceptional and the property booklet on the app was one of the best I have seen. All very clear and informative.
Jun 26 2022
This was our 3rd stay at 2 Harbour House , and our experience of booking the property , getting the relevant information prior to the start , and during to preempt our departure , should be a lesson to the rest of the industry. The property itself is amazing , with views that are 2nd to none , and the best table on the bay for breakfast, lunch and dinner should you so desire. Everything you need is there , and whilst I could spend endless days watching the view out of the bay windows , restaurants , bakery, post office , ice cream, and shopping are all just paces away.. We are returning next year .
May 30 2022
This was our first time booking through Orange Roofs and I have to say from booking to checkout the service was exceptional, we even got an e mail giving traffic hold ups en route. We have already booked with Orange Roofs for next year and have recommended them to friends and family Thank you to all the team

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.
Apr 11 2022
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…….
Feb 04 2022
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.
Oct 31 2021
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.
Aug 08 2021
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.
Jun 07 2021
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.
Sep 07 2020
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 !
