  • "The house was lovely however could not check in until 6pm even though when we booked it said 4pm."

    The main toilet couldnt be used as was blocked and the en suite shower kept flooding so all 8 of us had to share one bathroom/toilet. There were only two chairs on the balcony and one was broken so couldnt be used. Other than that lovely house with beautiful views!

  • "We had a glorious week staying at St Ives View, it is a fantastic property in a beautiful location."

    The open plan living space was fantastic to relax in with the extended family and the views of the sunset were stunning. A couple of minor points that I feel are worth noting are that the toilet on the left as you enter the property seems to be slightly blocked and does not flush properly. Also most of us were in a agreement that the mattresses were far too soft in the bedrooms. I would say those are minor points that did not deduct much from a fantastic holiday at a property I would recommend to others. Thank you :)

  • "Amazing place to stay."

    The view, the sunsets a truly wonderful place. A walk to the beach is only for the fittest! Very steep, very rugged but well worth the decent! Beach lovely, fish and chips from the takeaway a must. Highly recommended

  • "The hedge at the back would be better lower so when sat in the sun room you could see the beach."

    Small things like liquid soap in bathrooms and oven gloves would of been helpful, also more seating on the balcony, only 3 seats and one of those was broken. But still a lovely house and would not hesitate to book again

  • "This cottage is absolutely perfect!"

    We stayed for a week at Easter (two families with small children) and the house was great. The views in the evening were fantastic and only a short walk to the beach which was fine for the kids. Few good shops and restaurants within walking distance too...great place to stay in Cornwall.

    Great place cottage was amazing it is a steep walk from the town back to the holiday home so unsuitable if you take a lot with you to the beach but would recommend to anyone what a view

  • "Don’t want to say anything negative about the holiday, but the two single beds in the bedroom upstairs were quite low and more children’s beds, the couple that stayed in there are in their 70s and did struggle."

    The garden also could do with some loving attention. Apart from that , st ives view is a beautiful home and we will definitely be back and recommend to friends. Thank you

  • "The house was spectacular and was even better than I imagined."

    It was spotlessly clean and was equipped with everything you could need. It was very spacious and all rooms were a great size, sharing with 7 people didn't feel like you were living on top of each other or were short on space. The icing on the cake was the view! WOW!! We were lucky enough to get the most fabulous sun set one evening, drinking prosecco watching the sun set over the water was just fabulous.

  • "Beautiful house in a stunning location."

    There was everything we needed in the house and we had such a wonderful holiday because of it. The only structured feedback we would give is change or tighten up the toilet seats (they all seemed to be loose!) and just write a few more instructions re where the store key was for recycling. But truly- we did absolutely love it.

The property

A cool and contemporary beachside residence, its hillside position perched just a stroll down to the soft golden sands of Porthtowan, on Cornwall's Atlantic west coast.

St Ives view is the epitome of coastal living and perfect for sharing a memorable seaside holiday with family and friends.

A split level detached house, step into this light and airy interior and you will be greeted with unforgettable views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The entrance hall leads into a split level kitchen diner, with steps leading up to a crisp and contemporary living space on the upper level, with doors to a balcony.

There are four uncluttered pristine bedrooms on slightly different levels with two bathrooms, one being en-suite to the master bedrooms on the lower ground floor.

The sun room runs the width of the lower ground floor and is the perfect spot to curl up and watch the waves as they roll into the beach.

Two sun terraces overlook the beach below, no better spot to enjoy alfresco meals or evening barbecues.

From the garden, you can tootle down your own pathway giving you direct access to the beach and enjoy an evening stroll on the shoreline.

A hot outside shower awaits returning surfers and swimmers after a day catching waves.

The village amenities are all close by where you will find all you need including a small supermarket, deli, surf shop and a handful of good pubs and restaurants.

Stroll along the beach at low tide and you will find the quieter beach of Chapel Porth and as the tide ebbs back in, head back via the coastal path and marvel at the magnificent scenery.

For a holiday of fun, sea, sand and surf, St Ives View is just the ticket and ideal for sharing with family and friends.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


St Agnes 4 miles; Portreath 4 miles; Truro 9 miles.

Porthtowan is a small village resting on west Cornwall’s beautiful coastline, renowned for its Blue Flag beach, which at low tide exposes almost a mile and a half of fine, golden sands. Fringed by impressive granite cliffs, the beach is a popular surfing venue and is lifeguarded during the summer, making it ideal for families. Porthtowan is part of the St Agnes designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are some wonderful walks to be found, offering vivid scenery along the South West Coast Path, whether you choose to head east to St Agnes or west to Portreath. The towns of St Ives and Penzance, with their art galleries, restaurants and quaint harbours, are half an hour’s drive away, whilst Flambards Theme Park, The Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, and the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station are just a few of the other diverse attractions scattered around this picturesque region. A great base for a varied family break.
