I felt that this apartment did not quite reach the high standards I had come to expect from Classic Cottages. Firstly the arrival details were not clear enough for me. There are two main entrances which didn't appear to have numbers on and our apartment was hidden behind a second unmarked door which looked like a store cupboard. After a six hour drive this was too much and resulted in me and my mum standing outside in the pouring rain scratching our heads.
On entering the apartment we were obviously blown away by the uninterrupted sea view, the layout was thoughtfully designed and it was perfectly clean.
Just a few disappointments though, when I opened the patio door in the main bedroom the door handle fell off in my hand. I chose the main bedroom but because of the thin walls I had to swap rooms. I am a light sleeper however even my mum (who is slightly deaf) was still disturbed by the amount of sound bleed through. The whole apartment suffered from the same problem and it would most certainly put me off staying over the busier months. Lastly my room was a bit disappointing; I had a single bed with a metal bed frame. The Hypnos mattress was amazing but the frame creaked every time I moved so I woke up a lot. I also did not have a lamp or mirror in my room which meant me using the torch on my phone as a bedside lamp and knocking on my mums door every time I wanted to blow dry my hair.
Overall a pleasant stay and the short walk to Porthminster beach was a real early morning treat, however for money it just didn't feel like the luxury apartment I was expecting.

We were so sorry that this wasn't quite as you were expecting. We'll review the arrival details to make sure they're clear - we know that guests have sometimes had a long journey and we want to make arrival as easy as possible. We've arranged for the door handle and bed frame to be addressed and a mirror and lamp to be added to the single bedroom - thanks for the great suggestions. We're so sorry to hear that you found the apartment a little noisy - this hasn't been reported to date so we'll certainly monitor this and really appreciate you letting us know. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall - the views certainly are spectacular and what better way to start your day than with an early morning stroll to the beach!

The best self catering accommodation we have ever had, cannot recommend highly enough
Ms Patnick June 2018
Great for a small family with a baby. So close to the beach and easy pram access both out the front and back of flat. Easy walk into St Ives.
Housekeeper Debbie was excellent. The whole flat was immaculate and well equipped.
Just be aware it’s a warm flat with no aircon and you can’t leave the windows open at night because it’s on street level.

Great from the moment we arrived. Housekeeper very helpful and friendly. Great welcome pack. Spotlessly clean. Loved the location, we could avoid driving into busy St Ives, while being only a short stroll away. Loved it

I booked the Windjammer as a surprise for my wife's birthday and we both loved it. Beautifully finished and decorated to a high standard, we felt very spoilt! A great location with an amazing view, only a 10 minute walk into St Ives. Debbie the housekeeper was extremely helpful and went out of her way to ensure my wife had a great welcome at the apartment! Truly a great stay which gave us amazing memories!

A lovely apartment with a great view of the sea and a large garden. Really spacious with a modern, well equipped kitchen. Only a short walk to the beach and to town.

We enjoyed a very nice trip due to good location and great facilities.
Ms Hewett April 2017
Windjammer was breathtaking to walk into and such a joy to stay in for our week in Cornwall. It was furnished and designed beautifully and the views were fabulous -- from every room. The housekeeper was so helpful and the parking convenient and spacious. Fresh flowers, cookies and tea upon arrival were lovely. We recommend it highly.

This is a great facility - overlooking the water, wonderfully furnished, clean, spacious, and comfortable. Look for the bottle of wine awaiting your arrival.

Great place. We loved it!
Mr Head April 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windjammer and would highly recommend it. The apartment is extremely clean and comfortable with lots of added extras. The views from the living room and bedrooms are amazing. The location of the apartments is very good. Just a short walk to St Ives or in the opposite direction to the beautiful Carbis Bay beach.
Finally we must mention the housekeeper Debbie, who did everything to make our stay at Windjammer such a happy and relaxing one. Thank You.
Mr Bottomley October 2015
Excellent location outside of the town with great views. Spotlessly clean, well furnished, stylish and very comfortable. Fully equipped with everything one needs. High quality white towels, bedlinens and a very comfortable bed - offering great sleeps and waking to wonderful sea views. We had a really relaxing, peaceful holiday (early October) and didn't want leave. We will return. A great find and value for your pound.
Mrs Walker July 2015
The perfect place to explore lovely Cornwall!
Mr Johnson June 2015
Windjammer is one of the best places we have stayed in the UK. We look forward to staying there again and highly recommend it to anyone
