Ajax is a split level apartment above the Man of War gift shop on The Strand.

We holiday there regularly ourselves and maintain it to high standards. We continue to retain the high 3 star Quality in Tourism rating and are externally inspected every year.

Ajax is equipped with modern comforts but retains a ‘home from home’ feel. Perfectly situated right on Town Beach, you will enjoy stunning, panoramic views right across the bay, from the window seats in the lounge. A Scilly sunset is something not to be missed!


The Apartment

We share a main external door with the gift shop and then have our own separate internal front door, leading upstairs to Ajax.

On the first floor is the modern kitchen with breakfast bar; it is semi open plan leading through to the L-shaped lounge and dining room. A new kitchen was fitted in 2010 and includes a washing machine, dishwasher, double oven with separate hob, fridge-freezer, filter coffee machine, microwave and ample storage space. It is a good size and very well equipped with matching crockery, cookware and bakeware sets.

The lounge/ dining area has a sofa and armchairs for 4 and a dining table for 4. The bespoke mantle piece frames a Dimplex flame effect fire and a coffee table sits in front of this.

There are two large window seats from which to enjoy the stunning views, enjoy a bit of people watching or read a newspaper / book. There is always something outside to watch, whether it's the Scillonian arriving, the gig crews practising for their weekly race or simply the sun setting over the harbour.


Should the weather temporarily close in, Ajax is equipped with a flat screen television and free view box, DVD player, radio and CD player plus wi-fi. There is also a variety of books, games and DVDs for guests to enjoy.

The bathroom is also on this floor – it was newly fitted in 2012 and comprises a bath with integrated shower, WC and basin. It has a heated towel rail and recessed lighting. Water is heated by an immersion heater.

In the hall/ first landing area there is a walk in cupboard where you will find an iron and ironing board, airers and vacuum cleaner should you need them.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms: a large twin room at the front, which benefits from the beautiful views, and a sunny double room at the back, overlooking Church Street. Both have fitted wardrobes - complete with hangers - dressing tables and plenty of storage space. Hair dryers are provided in both rooms.

There is a storage heater in both rooms and extra blankets if needed during a winter stay.

Ajax is neutrally decorated and has artwork from local artists throughout.

Electricity and wi-fi are included in your stay.

Pillows & duvets are on all beds - linen and towels are provided, please bring your own beach towels.

We regret that pets and children under 5 years cannot be accommodated and smoking is not permitted.
