About Sea Spirit

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. Even the best wordsmith would struggle to describe just how fabulous an apartment Sea Spirit is. Not only to portray its calm, stylish yet comfortingly casual interior finish but the views that strike awe in the most collected of people. We think that the best way to describe the views is through the lens. Even then, they just don't seem to do the incredible, constantly changing views of St Ives justice. For centuries artists have come to St Ives for its unique light and spectacular coastal scenery. Being as far South West as you can get, the climate is milder and the daylight hours in both summer and winter are longer, so you will see why artists fell in love with scenes that Sea Spirit offers from sunrise to moonrise.

You will quickly fall in love with the views whether it's stormy seas in the middle of winter or the sun bouncing off the orange lichen covered roofs of St Ives reflecting in the mirror glass calm harbour during the summer.

Sea Spirit offers a warm, comfortable and modern welcome. There are two bedrooms at the rear of the apartment both with their own ensuite shower rooms. There is a double bed in one of the rooms and a zip and link bed in the other that can either be two 3ft single beds or a super king size bed. The kitchen has integrated appliances including a washing machine and dishwasher as well as a large fridge/ freezer, oven and induction hob. The dining table also speaks volumes from the photos; it has to be one of the best dining views of St Ives!

If you can tear yourself away from the view, the living room has two comfortable sofas for stretching out and relaxing while reading or watching your favourite programme on the Smart TV.

Sea Spirit, being on Barnoon Terrace, is in a traffic-free zone and is accessed via a path that runs in front of the terrace of sea-facing houses. For the warm, balmy evenings take your favourite beverage down to the shared terrace and lose yourself in the panoramic vista of the  the harbour and St Ives Bay. Start your mornings sat outside with your croissants and coffee while the palm trees sway, your skin warmed by morning sunshine, and watch the sea as it calmy mesmerizes you into a state of utter relaxation.

The stroll into town takes no more than a few minutes and you can pop out either at Barbara Hepworths' museum, Fore Street shops or opposite Porthmeor beach. 

Please note, the parking space for Sea Spirit is at St Ives Rugby Club where there is a generous, allocated space for your entire holiday. It takes a casual 12 minute stroll to reach the parking space.

As Sea Spirit is on the top floor of the building, there are a couple of flights of internal stairs to reach it.

A lovely warm apartment, very clean and well maintained. And a truly wonderful view - great to walk into the living room in the morning and see the sea all around.

The service we received from yourselves was excellent and the information provided was really helpful prior to our stay. We also thought it was a lovely touch for one of your colleagues to call the day before to see if we had any questions. The prosecco on arrival and biscuits etc was a lovely welcome.

Sea Spirit has probably the best views of St Ives through huge picture windows in the living area, absolutely stunning. From here you can watch the constantly changing land and seascape and the fishing boats bringing in their catch. You soon relax and get into the rhythm of Cornish life, a much needed antidote to modern living. The beds are very comfortable and everything is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well equipped. It is a lovely, quiet spot but only 4 mins walk to the shops and amazing restaurants and bars. There is also a parking space 10mins walk away which is invaluable during the busy season. Access to the property by vehicle is restricted, there is room to park 100 metres away to unload, then bags etc. need to be carried along a path and up two flights of stairs. The walk into town is also very steep so not suitable for everyone. But, if you are reasonably fit and active, this is a gem of a property.

Had a wonderful one week break at Sea Spirit Apartment. Orange Roofs really have great customer service and were very responsive to questions and needs that I have. Apartment was clean and well catered for and was great to have food delivery all ready and prepared for our arrival. The views from the apartment are spectacular and the location is perfect. Literally 5 minutes equally from Porthmeor Beach and the Harbour and the plethora of shops and restaurants on offer. A real gem of a place.

The panoramiv views at Sea Spirit are an absolute delight! We enjoyed sitting whilst looking over the harbour, watching the tide coming and leaving. The apartment is furnished with specuial sea spirit taste and style. Very clean, very tidy, very good equipment. We felt at home from the very first moment and even made friends with the seagulls on the bottom outside of our panoramic window. We would highly recommend this apartmant ! A place to come back to!

From sunrise to sunset this apartment has “the” best view of St Ives. It is a fabulous place, clean, new, stylish and the 47 steps from Fore street help work off a few calories from all the pasties, Korev’s, cream teas and fish n chips!! Can not recommend this place enough close to porthmear and harbour, Tate gallery and Fore street even though out the harbour very much in the heart of st ives

A great place to stay, lovely furnished and the view...!!

Breathtaking views from this spotless accommodation. We could have spent the whole visit just looking at the horizon! Very comfortable beds with lovely en-suite bathrooms. The main living area was also very comfortable and stylish. The only minor issue we had was sorted with an immediate response.

The truly fantastic view is the obvious benefit of this apartment but there are several others too. The proximity to the town centre is one, it being just a few minutes to get to various parts of Fore Street, the harbour and Porthmeor beach - albeit steep on the way back! The flat itself is great, everything worked, the showers were excellent and the kitchen well-appointed. The view is the star of the show though and I spent many hours watching the sunrise, the comings and goings in the harbour and the waves crashing on the island - wonderful, and the photos on the website do not do it justice.

We had a great stay at this apartment. It was bright, clean and very well finished. The welcome provisions were very much appreciated and every detail was thought of. The views were amazing, you could see both beaches and the winding streets set out below. The glass windows had been very well designed so make the most of all aspects. We would love to return for another visit.

Amazing panoramic views - the photos don't lie! Immaculate, modern apartment with everything you need and lots of extra touches. Peaceful and close to all amenities. I absolutely loved my stay here and could hardly tear myself away. Will definitely return - soon! Orange Roofs also supply all the information you need in a detailed pack at the apartment and via email. Very helpful and not at all intrusive. Would definitely book my holiday through them again.

The flat is dominated by stunning and ever changing views across St Ives and this is undoubtedly its biggest asset. It is well equipped, clean and bright and of adequate/ good size for two...probably a bit tight for three and would be crowded for four. It is in an excellent position and very close to the main streets and harbour. However it is a steep climb up if you're coming back. There are two nice showers but no bath. We found the bed over firm and rather uncomfortable although others may differ. Access is via 3 flights of stairs. The last flight is really quite narrow and pretty steep and as a result difficult to negotiate with luggage/ heavy shopping. We did worry a bit about fire risk although it was clear there were some fire safety measures in place. Overall it was lovely and we had a wonderful stay.

Just got back from a week at Sea Spirit in St Ives, and what a lovely base for a holiday it was. The apartment is perfectly located and in a blink of an eye you can either be into the town, with all that it has to offer, or down on Porthmeor beach. The allocated parking space was a 10minute stroll away, but this wasn't too much of an issue as we only left St Ives a couple times during the week we were there as there was plenty to see and do. The panoramic views from Sea Spirit were an absolute delight which meant we spent more time there than we typically would. Sitting and eating breakfast whilst looking out over the harbour was great, and similarly in the evenings, we opted to bring our Fish and Chips back 'home' to get out of the firing line of the opportunistic seagulls. The apartment is well furnished, and the provision of WI-FI and Netflix, was an added bonus. We will definitely be looking to come back to St Ives again, and are hopeful Sea Spirit will be available for our next stay

Perfect location, perfect house finished to a very high standard! Located at the top of St Ives but loved the walk down through the pretty streets to the centre. Loved being in the hustle and bustle of the town and having access to the beaches and lovely restaurants. We will be back; cannot recommend highly enough! X

Sea Spirit is an excellent apartment with the most amazing view! Really well equipped and great location. Would thoroughly recommend!

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Sea Spirit. The apartment was immaculately clean, and everything we could have asked for and more! ..........and Oh, that view!!!!!! I truly believe that there isn’t a better one in St Ives, particularly so close to the town too. Literally a two minute walk and you’re on the harbour. The climb isn’t bad, but the internal stairs may be a little steep for some ...... but totally worth it!!! Five stars!

The apartment is lovely! The property is located within a short (hilly) walk from St Ives centre. It is very comfortably furnished and well appointed, with some beautiful finishing touches; a real "home from home". I think the owners have provided almost everything anyone could need. The view from the apartment is absolutely stunning, one could happily just sit and watch the world of St Ives passing by for the entire holiday. Overall we had a wonderful time, even with some very bad weather. I would definitely choose Sea Spirit again.

We have just returned from a fabulous week at Sea Spirit. The apartment itself could not be in a better location or furnished more beautifully. The view from the lounge must surely be one of the best in town and provides a great perspective of the whole of St Ives and the surrounding area. Orange Roofs also made the booking process very straight forward and catered to our every need. I thoroughly recommend both Sea Spirit and Orange Roofs - we will definitely be visiting again!

The best view in St Ives! 2 of us stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely trip. The flat is beautiful, well styled and has more than enough to provide a comfortable stay. A fully equipped kitchen and large ensuites for both bedrooms. It's clear the owners really care as we had everything we needed. The flat is in a great spot, with the beaches, the Tate and the town centre a short walk through the many alley ways in St Ives. We'd gladly recommend to others, and would stay again in a heartbeat!

The view from the "Sea Spirit" apartment is indeed stunning and breathtaking. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard and appears very elegant, precious and spotless clean. The owners definitely took care of all possible details of the interior and nothing is missing. Hence, we felt perfectly well and would rate more than 5 stars if possible. The stairs to the 2nd floor are truly steep but that is no problem for persons without a handicap. The location is great as regards the shops and beaches who are close by and can be reached in minutes. Finally, the contact to Sam and Ross of “Orangeroofs” has been more than friendly and the communication went well, effective and smoothly. In conclusion, we can 100% recommend a stay in this gem and we are really sad that our wonderful week was over so quickly. Wish we could come back in the future.
