Mexico Bay is a second floor, beautifully appointed and recently renovated apartment with glorious views of the golden sands at Gwithian and Godrevy Head. Porthminster beach is a 300 m walk away and, a rarity for St Ives, the apartment has parking.

As a couple, the apartment was perfect for us, it was a nice size and was equipped with everything we needed. The ease of parking was particularly appreciated given the limited parking in St Ives. It was ideally located close to the centre of St Ives and to local shops. The apartment was freshly decorated and the outlook was fantastic as it overlooked the bay. Access to the 2nd floor apartment was via stairs (no lift available) and the building was on a slope from the centre of town, anyone with mobility issues may wish to consider this, but for us it was perfect and we would definitely stay there again.



Comfortable flat with a view

Really nice flat perched above the town, so nice views and all. Well furnished with clearly new furniture.
It did everything it should have done and had everything you could think of to make your stay comfortable. It is really ideal for a couples, but of course it can work for a family up to 2 kids staying in bunk-beds too. The parking outside is amazing if a little tired and utilitarian. Walk to town is cute, down the famous St Ives steps. Great for a holiday and definitely recommended.

We enjoyed our week in Mexico Bay. It is very clean, generally spacious and conveniently located for the beach or the museums. It proved to be a good base for visiting places in Southern Cornwall. The living room is spacious and has great views. The Master bedroom is also good and the 5ft bed was much appreciated as we dislike having to squash into a smaller bed on holiday. The other bedroom is small and you cannot do much more in it than sleep or read in bed, but it served its purpose. The kitchen has most of what you need, but you will need to bring washing up cloths, scourers, washing-up brush and dishwasher tablets as these are not provided (not the sort of thing you want to discover at 9 pm on your first night!). There is just about enough room for the dining room table in the kitchen, but it would help if the fridge door were moved to open from the left, as it is difficult to get to the fridge at present given the location of the table.

One thing to note. If you enter the postcode into your Satnav, it may come up with road behind the cottage, Trewidden Road. If it does this, then enter Bishop's Road instead if your Satnav recognises it (our Garmin didn't) as the flat is in the first property in Bishop's Road. Otherwise, set your Satnav for the postcode and follow the excellent directions Cornwall Cottages provides you with towards the end. If your Satnav tells you to turn left into Talland Road, ignore it and continue straight ahead instead.

Another thing to note is that the "shower room" contains a bath: much appreciated by me as I don't like showers.
