About this property

With crystal clear Blue Flag awarded waters lining its sandy shore and the iconic Tate Gallery as its backdrop, Porthmeor Beach has plenty to brag about, so it’s little wonder that this half mile sandy stretch is one of South Cornwall’s most popular beaches.

Nestled in sought-after St Ives and set just 400 metres away from the beach, Porthmeor Sands is a beautiful coastal property with a fabulous outside space so it’s just right for families and friends looking to sample a slice of alluring Cornish seaside life. Recently modernised, the interior has an open plan design for its living / cooking space, with two bright and spacious lower floor bedrooms, and a sprawling top floor master suite with its own dressing and shower room. All bedrooms have zip and link beds to offer versatility. Tastefully furnished and attractively styled, the house not only looks inviting but has also been attentively equipped for dining and entertainment, with a large fully fitted kitchen creating a holiday home that functions perfectly as a comfortable and well-located base from which to explore the surrounding area.

When days aren’t spent paddling the Atlantic surf or eating ice-cream on the beach, they can be whiled away in blissful seclusion within the home’s private garden which wraps right around the property and comes complete with a bubbling hot tub. A lovely patio makes for an inviting suntrap where guests can catch up on a good read or enjoy outdoor dining, while the Nintendo Retro games console means that kids (and adults) have plenty to do even on rainy days.

With Porthmeor Beach attracting beach-goers and water sports fans all year round, finding parking in the area is often like finding a needle in a haystack, but this holiday home has space for two cars which means there’s even more time for relaxation. Perfectly positioned along the coast, St Ives is within easy reach of the stunning beaches at nearby Carbis Bay, The Towans and Gwithian, and for days out there are the historic sites at Hayle to discover or the South West Coast path to explore.
