View Room Information
Perched above the white sands and crystal-clear waters of Porthminster Beach and just a short stroll from St Ives’ iconic winding streets, this beautiful townhouse forms part of an exclusive collection of boutique seaside properties and couldn’t be more perfectly positioned as an idyllic coastal getaway if it tried.

Boasting other-worldly sea views, a gorgeous coast-inspired interior and ample space for unwinding in, the living and sleeping areas are quite simply sensational, with tactile soft furnishings and sumptuous decor playing second fiddle only to the staggering vistas that frame nearly every room. Beautifully designed to create sociable spaces for converging in as well as sanctuaries to retreat to, the property’s layout flows between two floors, with the open plan living /cooking and entertainment area being upstairs, and two elegant bedrooms (both of which are en-suite) being found on the ground floor.

Light and airy, the living room boasts sliding doors which open to a fantastic Juliet balcony, and it’s here that guests can unwind in blissful relaxation on two stylish sofas to enjoy an exclusive vantage point over the beach and waves. A contemporary kitchen with its island (which doubles as a breakfast bar) means morning coffees and dinner preparations are a sociable affair; and for warmer evenings when the Cornish sun sets in all its splendour on the horizon, there’s a stunning furnished courtyard where fresh-air dining and evening drinks can be shared.

Downstairs, the master bedroom is a dream, with sliding doors opening out to another Juliet balcony that overlooks the sea, and the super king size bed with its luxurious linens making the perfect place to indulge in long morning lie-ins or afternoon nap. The second bedroom is also generously proportioned and beautifully furnished, with its zip and lock twin beds offering versatility to suit families with children of all ages, as well as couples and friends.

Situated on The Terrace within a stone’s throw from the heart of St Ives, 3 Porthminster Mews is just a two-minute walk from the town’s culture-packed streets which meander past boutique shops and artisan eateries down to its postcard-worthy harbour. The white sands of the Blue Flag Porthminster beach are moments away, and with its award-winning café, beachside facilities and clear waters, it’s easy to see why it’s been rated by visitors and locals alike as one of the top three beaches in the UK. Coastal walks abound in the area so for a slightly more energetic days as well as incredible coastal views, guests can wander the scenic South West Coast path from Porthminster Beach to Porthminster Point and on to Carbis Bay. Further afield and easily accessible by car are the well-known towns and beaches in the area including those of Hayle and Gwithian, and for a close-to-home indulgence there’s the Harbour Hotel and Spa which offers a range of facilities that include an indoor pool, treatment rooms and a restaurant/bar with outdoor terrace.

This property offers four passes for the Harbour Hotel and Spa in St Ives, which are valid until 4th September 2022. Included in these passes is access anytime, including weekends, 20% off food and drink at Harbour Kitchen, Bar & Terrace, 20% off Spa treatments (Monday to Friday) and 10% off Spa retail products.

Welcome to St Ives

There’s something special about holidays in St Ives and we just can’t quite put our fingers on it. It could be the beautiful light that’s attracted artists to the resort for generations, the cobbled streets and coastal views…or that feeling of being a world away from the hustle and bustle. Whatever it is, St Ives has a charm that’s unlike any other, and we’d recommend it at any time of year.
