Porthminster, St Ives

£942 - £2975 per week

With stunning sea views across to St Ives harbour, parking nearby, outside space and being only a 10 minute stroll to Porthminster Beach, Zareba ticks all the boxes for your St Ives stay. Sleeping up to six guests, the property is laid over three floors and is light, spacious, and beautifully styled throughout, in relaxing warm greys and coastal tones. You have the choice of three bedrooms, with the master bedroom offering gorgeous views out across the bay to the harbour, an idyllic place to enjoy your morning coffee, either in bed, or perched on the snug sofa, who can think of a better way to start the day. The sitting room has large windows which frame the impressive views across the bay perfectly, with a sumptuous large corner sofa to sink into after a day of adventures. Outside you will find the space is designed to make the most of the incredible vista too, with a tiered terrace, complete with rattan furniture, the ideal space to dine al fresco during the long, balmy, summer evenings.

Zareba has all you need for the perfect beach holiday, with the advantage of being a short stroll down to Porthminster Beach, where crystal clear waters and golden sands await, ideal for a spot of kayaking or paddle boarding, after which you can wash off the sea and sand in the hot outside shower at the property. If you venture a little further on, you will reach the picture perfect harbour front, with its quant cobbled streets housing a collection of restaurants, galleries, and shops, before heading back and enjoying a G&T on the Terrace. If travelling by car, you have the bonus of private parking for one vehicle nearby, meaning you can park up and come and go with ease. However, if arriving by train, then the station can be found in just under a 10-minute walk.
