The Puffin is a gorgeous beautifully furnished apartment located over three floors, and a short walk from the heart of St Ives with its array of vibrant little shops and tucked away restaurants.
Arrive and park your car in your private space, step into this super spacious home and your holiday begins! The Puffin is one of eight apartments and is located at the end of the complex.
You enter through the front door which is on the ground floor and take the stairs up to the first floor where the sitting-room and kitchen/diner meet you. The kitchen is exceptional, and although seems compact really does offer everything you could need for your holiday entertaining.
Next door you'll find the sitting-room which offers a truly relaxing spot for all the family to gather. Sink into the soft velvet sofas at the end of the day, or snuggle up in the armchair to watch a movie or read a favourite book. Patio doors lead out onto a little balcony, a perfect little space to listen to the sea gulls. A cloakroom/utility-room completes the first floor.
A second staircase leads you up to the second floor and the three bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is restful and calm and oozes couple's glamour. Further along you have the twin and bunk bedroom, both decorated in crisp delicate whites and creams.
St Ives is a dream all year round and if it's your first time here, we promise you it will enchant you, and pull you back. The sandy beaches of Porthminster, Carbis Bay and Porthmeor are all within an easy stroll, and each one has its own beach cafe with stunning sea views. We especially love Porthmeor, where on a chilly day you are given a snuggly throw to wrap around you, keeping you cosy.
If you fancy a day out why not head further west along the coast and you'll find the stunning Sennen Cove with its huge beach and spectacular waves - perfect for surfers. A little further around the coast you'll find iconic Land's End.
If you want to explore more then head further around onto the south coast and you'll come across the astonishing Minack Theatre with shows galore throughout the summer months.
The Puffin truly does provide a wonderful retreat for a family or maybe a couple wanting just that extra bit of space to enjoy and reconnect with one another.
