22 Piazza is located at the historic ‘Piazza’ building. On the top floor, with a mezzanine bedroom there are vistas both onto St Ives town and harbour, even more impressive are the views onto Porthmeor beach. Perched high above the white sands of Porthmeor, you could be with the seagulls drifting in the breeze. For sleeping there is a master superking bed upstairs. Downstairs a sofa bed and two cabin style beds for the little ones. A parking space is located just beneath Piazza.
Upper Saltings is an architect designed loft space. Enter through a door steeped in heritage, try to resist taking a peak (it really is quite special) at the infamous bunk cabin room and enter into the open plan living space. This is loft living at its very best. Wherever you look a reflection of the white sands or sea can be found. The room has been carefully planned so that whatever you are doing, preparing dinner, reading your favourite story or having a tipple, you can enjoy the fine sea views. Sleeping up to a maximum of ten, once you stay you will want to come back again and again whatever the season
Old Saltings is the newest addition. Art house furnishings, local artwork and artefacts are all present and subtley reminding you that this really is St Ives at its finest. Before entering Old, you are greeted with a large but ornate wooden door boasting a fine knocker, ‘Old Saltings’ has been etched and coloured into a plate above the door, you know you are in for a real treat before even stepping inside. Deep blue carpets run into the property and into an open plan arena where the kitchen, living and dining area all come into one, focusing on that all important sea view. The bedrooms sit either side of the property, a bunk room hidden behind cherry wood paneling and another secret king bedroom is hidden away. The master with ensuite and family bathroom are opposite. White washed walls throughout. Old Saltings is timeless and spectacular throughout the year.
