About Trudy Roden
My husband and I live in Cheshire, UK. We love Cornwall and so we decided to buy a holiday home with a view to retiring down there in the future. We let the property out when we were not using it and maintain it to a high standard because it is our future home.
Trudy Roden purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Trudy Roden chose Saint Ives
When we had decided to buy in Cornwall, we spent some happy times touring around and viewing properties to purchase. When we saw this apartment we knew it was the one for us. A lot of apartments we viewed were to small to become a permanent home. This apartment is the ground floor of a converted hotel and has large rooms with high ceilings so plenty of space as a potential future place to live and to relax on holiday. We feel that St Ives is the best place in Cornwall, with lovely beaches, the historic harbour and fantastic restaurants. It is wonderful to wander around the old town exploring the little shops and watching artists at work.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has a fantastic view over the St Ives Bay towards Godrevy and is unusual in that it has a large terrace from where to sit, admire the view and watch the world go by. We furnished the apartment for our own use and therefore the furnishings are high quality with leather suites and granite top tables. We have 2 car parking spaces, one directly behind the property (1.8m wide) and another large space in a private car park located very close to the apartment.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A great bank holiday weekend at St Ives
The house was great for a family of 4. Lot of space for the kids. Really close to the centre (5 min walk) and the leisure centre with an amazing pool. The kitchen was fully equipped with even all the stuff you need to clean, wash etc. Thanks for everything Trudy. Hope to see you again.
The apartment is beautifully situated, well furnished and the kitchen has all the utensils one could possibly need. I find that some apartments have barely any utensils, but this apartment is spot on. The views are lovely and I found it very quiet.
Thank you Trisha. I am glad you liked it.
An Excellent Property
Big, spacious and nicely decorated. I would highly recommend.
Thank you very much for your nice comments. I am glad you enjoyed it and hope you will choose our apartment should you come back to St Ives.
Beautiful, spacious apartment
We've stayed in rental properties all over Europe and this is one of our favorites. It is well laid out and stylishly decorated, with spacious rooms, comfortable furniture, big well-equipped kitchen, nice bathrooms, wonderful front terrace, good TV and WiFi connections. It would be perfect for two couples, with the bedrooms at opposite ends of the apartment and each with its own bathroom. We were determined not to drive on this trip, so we chose St. Ives because the train comes there and will take you to other interesting towns such as Penzance and Falmouth as day trips. Scenery in the area is gorgeous. St. Ives is set up to accommodate tourists, with numerous galleries of local art, good pubs & coffee shops and a lively waterfront, and is very crowded when the weather is nice, like Bar Harbor or Key West. The apartment is a reasonable walking distance from the train station and the heart of town, but it's a pretty steep climb up the hill, so if you don't have a car, take a taxi when you arrive rather than schlepping your bags up there. We stayed for five nights and could have enjoyed another week in this lovely location.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you had a good time and enjoyed your stay at our property.
Fantastic break in a lovely flat. The pictures don't do justice to the size of the rooms and the view is fabulous. We would love to come back and stay again.
Thank you very much for your nice comments. We hope you come and visit again soon.
