The stylish décor and furnishings span three floors, all of which benefit from stunning sea views from the rear of the property. The ground floor has a spacious open plan sitting/dining area, with bi-fold doors that open out onto the beautiful terrace, where you can gaze out towards Godrevy Lighthouse, while sunbathing on the large rattan furniture with a glass of wine. The modern kitchen is well equipped for entertaining family and friends, and a Nespresso coffee machine is provided, for you to enjoy the first coffee of the day while relaxing on the comfortable sofas with the gentle Cornish breeze flowing through. The upstairs snug is ideal for enjoying some peace and quiet, in the evening, catching up on your favourite shows thanks to the Smart TV, or for entertaining the younger members of the family with a selection of board games on offer.

We loved our weeks stay at 8 The View… Location was very good for st ives cafe/restaurants and beaches. We also liked walking along the coastal path to Carbis bay beach . The property had everything we needed .

Just a minor criticism, the TV in the lounge could be upgraded to a smart TV .

The owners have a beautiful property and will definitely book again !!

8 The View is a really lovely property, very well equipped. The decor is lovely and it has everything you will need. It looks over Portminster beach, which means walking up hills a lot but that is part of visiting St Ives. The view from the top floor bedroom is especially beautiful. This is a very comfortable property, they have thought of everything. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at 8 The View, last week and had the most fantastic time. The location is perfect, with two handy car spaces. We walked into St Ives every evening. There is so much to do and the town has so much to offer. The owners have covered every luxury you can think of. Comfy beds and bedding, washer drier, dishwasher. Lovely plates and cutlery and furnishings. The scones, cream and jam was a nice touch along with a bottle of milk in the fridge. The place is amazing and the views are stunning. We would watch the boats in the bay and the view of the lighthouse is beautiful. There is ample space for all guests with every special touch being thought of. The bathrooms are new, spotlessly clean and overall we had a fantastic week.
The area itself is stunning. The beaches are beautiful and St Ives itself has so much to offer. We did book up all of our restaurants to eat out months in advance which I would thoroughly recommend.
Looking to return next year..

No.8, the View is a fabulous property. It is situated a few minutes walk out of town which has its advantages, especially if like us you want to explore the surrounding areas without having to negotiate the busy little roads in the town itself. It sits just above the path between Porthminster and Carbis Bay, which is lovely for an early morning walk to either beach. Being outside of town also means you don't wake up to the (very) early seagull dawn chorus!

The property is beautifully and very tastefully appointed with everything you need (and more) and lots and lots of space. The secure underground parking is a huge bonus too.

I have to mention the master bedroom on the top floor. This is pure luxury with one of the best views over the bay I have ever seen. Waking up here is a treat! Accommodation like this makes you feel special!

The walk into town is roughly 10 minutes to Porthminster if you take the direct but steep path in front of the property. Or, if you take the main road, about 15 minutes to the bus station at the Malakoff.

We loved this property and will definitely return.
