Step Inside

Take the elevator to the top floor and step out into penthouse luxury. Once inside, Due South is filled with a relaxing ambiance and inviting inside/outside ambiance from the generous glass doors filling the spaces with natural light. The hub of the penthouse is the open plan living, dining and kitchen space where holiday life takes shape from planning the days ahead or enjoying good Cornish food and conversation. The modern kitchen is fully fitted with crisp white cabinets and all you need for family cooking. The living room offers double aspect doors leading to the wrap around balcony to the front or out onto the roof terrace at the side. Throw back the doors and take in the ever changing views of St Ives bay, this relaxed space offers comfortable seating and a quiet place to sit and read. The ensuite master bedroom is located to the front with stunning sea views, check the morning surf state from your pillow and enjoy the tranquility from your elevated position. Two further bedrooms and a smart family bathroom complete the luxury accommodation, each bedroom is adorned with images of the owners travels and a bespoke colour palette whilst the bathroom is the perfect place for a post beach pamper. 

From your Holiday Door

The generous balcony to the front of Due South captures the day long sunshine from sunrise to sunset in the bay. Two garden benches offer private spaces to enjoy the view and can be accessed from the living area or master bedroom. The roof terrace really is a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet afternoon or some alfresco dining. A large dining table with comfortable seating sets the scene or relax in the cosy sofa and armchair area for afternoon tea. Due South is located within easy access to central St Ives and all of its wonderful white sand beaches including Porthminster, Porthmeor and Harbour beach. Wander down into the town and take in the comings and goings of this cosmopolitan coastal town with a superb collection of places to eat, shop and explore. The breathtaking west of Cornwall is on your doorstep from the wild and windswept beaches of Sennen and Porthcurno, the quintessential fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole and the iconic landmark of Land's End. With its plum location, day trips are an easy option from the property with easy access to the quieter waters of the South Coast, the foodie havens of North Cornwall and the wonderful plethora of gardens throughout the Duchy.

This is one of the best properties we have had in 30 years of self catering in Cornwall. Our first stay with cornish Gems but not our last!

Fantastic and already booked for next year

The property was spotlessly clean. Due South is a superb property, private and very quiet, with great views, lots of light, and two balconies. We sat outside in the sun, even though it was March
