Property Location


St Ives, once a busy fishing village, now relies on tourism as its main industry. Turner came and painted a landscape in 1811 and art has played a part in St Ives’ history ever since. More recently Barbara Hepworth and the Tate Gallery have put St Ives on the modern map. The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden is an amazing place to visit, and well worth it even if you're not a budding artist. Trewyn Studios where she lived and worked from 1939 until her tragic death in 1975 has been turned into a fantastic museum, depicting many of her favourite sculptures in the sub tropical garden, is now managed by the Tate. The Tate Gallery St Ives was built in 1993 on the former gas works site displaying various paintings, sculptures and ceramics.

Skidden House at the bottom of Skidden Hill is the oldest working hotel in the town as well as the first hostelry where Guinness was sold in the UK in circa 1760. St Ives and St Columb Major near Newquay are the only two locations left in Cornwall where 'Hurling the Silver Ball' takes place, once one of Cornwall’s most ancient and intriguing customs. St Ives and Carbis Bay have recently been presented with a Silver Gilt as part of the Britain in Bloom campaign, they also boast some amazing north coast beaches.

But the main draw of the town has always been the stunning golden sands and azure blue waters, with glorious views stretching from Godrevy and Gwithian all the way to Hayle.

Porthminster at Harlequins apartments is central for the areas and villages of the west of Cornwall, Land's End, Mousehole, Penzance and St Michaels Mount. Facilities for golf, sailing, course and sea fishing are all available within easy reach. You can take country and coastal walks or visit local country pubs for well-priced meals or shop in the local super stores in St Ives and Penzance. There are a wealth of gardens to explore. The mines at Lelant, Geevor, Bottalack and Poldark are a short drive away. The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach are also well worth a visit.

Lovely accommodation, just a long way up!

The accommodation itself was great, well-equipped, comfortable, spacious and clean and with fantastic views. We had no problems while we were there so cannot comment on the service from the owners. Coming from a very flat area of Lincolnshire we didn't realise just how hilly St Ives is. It was a steep climb up to the flat and then up to the 2nd floor accessed by stairs (no lift) and for two reasonably fit 50 somethings we found it quite tough. However, this did not spoil our enjoyment of our holiday and I only mention it to let others know if they have any mobility issues. On the couple of occasions we resorted to taxis it was just under AGBP3.

Harlequi 11

Very nice flat and as it looks in the photos. Patio not very nice for sitting out as mentioned by other reviewers, but we did not require this. 300yards to the beach, probably as the seagulls fly. Property is high up and not for those with walking difficulties. we had an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

The outside was off-putting, but once inside it was fine. Could do with rubbish recycling facility, including glass.

A great short break

This was my first trip to St Ives and I was very happy with the accommodation. It was very comfortable and well had everything that we needed. When we couldn't connect to the wifi it was sorted within 10 minutes after one phone call. I would stay at Harlequin 11 again.

The generally poor condition of the communal area (stairs, patio etc) spoilt this pleasant apartment.

Fantastic location and views

The apartment was in an ideal location with beautiful views from the living room. Had a great time while we were there walking into the main street most nights for food and drinks in the many restaurants and pubs. The only let downs were that the communal areas were not as well kept as the apartment itself and the parking numbers were not marked as we were told. This did not stop our enjoyment of the place.

Great base to explore Cornwall

Clean, comfortable, well equipped place. We loved our stay in St Ives, we visited lots of places and we were always glad to come back to our base for a well deserved rest. Within a very short but hilly walk you find yourself with many shops, pubs, restaurants, galleries etc to choose from. Or you can enjoy a nice walk by the seafront taking in the amazing views and meeting the seals at the end of the pier. Loved it!
