Description from owner


Beach Break House offers fantastic sea and coastal views and is in an elevated position just above Porthmeor Beach. The house and parking are easy to get to by car and it does not require negotiating the narrow streets of the old town. From the property you can walk to all that St Ives has to offer.

We grew up in the area and were fortunate enough to be able to buy a lovely holiday property and try to get back 'home' as often as we can. We have been sharing our holiday home for many years and have a good number of regular visitors who enjoy our place as much as we do.

Frequent use by the family means that the house is well cared for and well equipped to meet all your holiday needs.
