Situated just 5 minutes' 400M walk from the gorgeous, award winning, fine sands and crystal clear waters of Porthmeor Beach (Blue Flag & Tidy Awards), Harbour, Tate St Ives and town centre. Adjacent to the property is Ayr's lovely playground and playing field.

Driftwood Porthmeor has coastal sea views from all windows and offers peace and quiet after the hustle and bustle of town.

Driftwood Porthmeor is surrounded by spectacular beaches. 5 minutes walk away is Porthmeor Beach famous for its beauty and world renowned surf school. Head down to the beach for fantastic food and drink served in an contemporary beach cafe environment, or sip a delicious cocktail watching the sunset from one of their outside heated booths!

The purity of light is dazzling and it is not surprising that next to the beach is the Tate Gallery and few minutes walk away is the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture garden. St Ives is very popular with artists and has its own school of painting.

Close by are 4 other beaches, keep walking along Porthminster and you will come to the Island on the other side is Porthwidgen Beach sheltered and smaller perfect for little tots, next is Bamaluz -small but year round dog friendly, Harbour Beach great for watching the seals trying to steal the fishermen's catch and Porthminster Beach another gorgeous sandy bay with outdoor contemporary dining.

Driftwood offers a self catering holiday but with fantastic dining opportunities close by are modern and traditional restaurants, cafes and gourmet fish & chips in abundance.

Get lost wandering through the maze of cobbled streets lined by art galleries and boutique stores or head west to the coastal footpath to Zennor and just drink in the spectacular scenery. Be warned it is extraordinarily beautiful. Head East out of St Ives to Carbis bay you will find another amazing beach with crystal clear waters, get the train back and enjoy the coastal view.

“Perfect spot”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2014

This is a very spacious maisonette, and a very good location so close to the nearby beaches. Having visited many nearby towns, St Ives seems the best of the bunch. Carbis bay and porth kidney beach are stunning and only a few minutes away by car.

“A really delightful flat with stunning views and the atmosphere of the sea”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2014

my wife and I stayed for some day's, which proved relaxing and stimulating at the same time. The flat is simple and tastefully decorated and has a fresh, clean feel to it. The sense and sound of the sea is ever present and adds to the atmosphere. It feels cosy and welcoming with all the necessary mod cons.

“Ideal location and great facilities”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2013

Stayed here in October 2013 with some friends who were visiting from Canada. We found the location to be excellent. It was only approx 5 minute walk into town. Very well maintained property with great facilities. The welcome information book left by the owner was extremely useful for exploring the area. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

“A bright modern apartment with lovely sea views”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2013

We have a lovely stay in Driftwood, St Ives. The apartment is very well equipped with everything necessary you could think of. The sun trap balcony would be lovely in warmer weather and the location is just a short walk up the hill from the beach and shops. The level of cleanliness is very high and the owner and housekeeper are easily contactable to help out with any queries

“Home from home holiday apartment in a great location of St Ives”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

I stayed in the apartment during February half term with my two teenage sons and my sister and her 8 year old daughter. We were all very comfortable and the apartment had all the mod cons. My two sons especially loved the 3D TV rather a little too much! The location is excellent a short walk into the town centre and great for driving as you can head out of the town without going into the busy centre. we were lucky with the weather as it was quite sunny the first few days whcih meant we were able to visit The Lizard and St Michaels mount. The owner had provided everything you would need and I really felt that i was at home! Will definitely visit again.
